I prefer sony ui than other, that make me think hard to try custom rom just because jb. Sony don't have attention grabbing hardware and no marketing. I don't know what they are doing, but their support getting worse.

In my Point of View SONY has the best looking UI of all the Androids out there ....i have used Sam , HTC , SONY ...but the SONY's UI is more attractive than any other ....i always tend to go towards SONY ...SONY only needs to Beef up its hardware along with its competition ..i think it is only late on that PART ..

sony is like LG. yup, they have the hardware. but they lack so much software. personally, i use an LG and i would definitely buy an LG again. man they are durable. but they lack the software. but for me, i always go for durability. my sister has an optimus one which is already 2years old and has dived in pools for so many times, but at the end of the day, it still works. but sluggish ever since. i have an optimus black. 1 year old l. fell off a car while traveling, spilled beer on it, and the back has cracked because of intensive dropping. but it still works like a charm with cm10

The only way I see Sony shipping 50 million Smartphones is if the rent their trucks to Apple.

Sony is next on Apple's To Do List of "suing manufacturers" but Appla feel the warmth of pee in pants every time they think of doing it ... one fight against samsung and see how many corpses came falling from the cupboard that stacks "stolen ideas/work/techynology" at Apple Inc. I think you need to look outside of US also when it comes to definition of world and sony is moving up :)

I think before they go trying other platforns, they should go back to profitability first with android.
