Hop on T-Mobile and have buttloads of money available to buy these sorts of things.

I want to hear something about audio performance to see whether it is a great combination of Cyber-Shot and Walkman.

Sony, you can be more successful by releasing this monster on all us carriers. I will get it without a doubt.

Going back to the power button for a moment (image #2)... I'm not sure if it just the render or what, but the outer ring of the button looks to be causing a shadow on the curved edge of the chassis. Seems to be an overhang which would be a catch point to collect dust, or even worse, get caught on something and tear off that part of the button.

It does look good... but if that's a catch point then it's a no-go for me.

Will we have a promise for KLP, soon enough after Google release it, for this device?
