Sony announces that it will announce
Sony seems to be getting better at... teasing us. On Friday, it said we should wait till Monday for a “surprise” announcement. Well, it really was a surprise - today Sony announced that it will announce a new phone. Luckily, we got some scant details along the way and now we know that it will be a “fun and colorful” Xperia smartphone, but nothing more than that. 

Also, for the first time you can hit the fast forward button on that unveiling, and make it happen faster - right now, Sony has a counter showing that the new handset will break cover in 10 days, but if enough users log into Facebook and tap on the company’s page, the announcement could happen much quicker. When? Again, it depends on you.

So there you have it, the fun and colorful phone doesn’t seem like the language companies use for high-end devices, so we’d place our bets on something more affordable, maybe a variation on that budget Sony Tapioca, aka Sony Tipo ST21i, we saw in rumors earlier? You guess in the comments below.

YOU'RE A BIG FAILURE. Sony makes beautiful designs unlike Apple

I really hate to be such a nitpicking arse, but really...
"Sony Mobile is teasing us with a “surprise” it has for us and we’ll have all the details in just a couple of hours."

Just read that slowly. Truly ivy league sentence structuring.

if it turn out to be just the sony xperia ion or neo L then this would be a big disappointment.

Together with 4000mah battery and 2gb ram...

This is just my thought

It can be a windows 8 tablet. Take a look at the market.all of the brands announced windows 8 tablet in computex. Maybe it is a windows 8 tablet. Just a guess.
