Totally Agreed I have this Xperia Neo!
Its just good bcuz of Sony's Bravia Engine; Stunning 8Mpx in Night mode; Awesome Sound; looks cool enugh !!

But when it comes to OS I'm totally demoralized with the device.

H/w is FAB cuz of Sony but Nothing is good from Android

Right. I'm a nokia user (probably not for a long time...waiting to see design and price of Nexus prime), and I think Nokia maps is the best navigation solution on mobile. At least the best free solution (and one of the best of all).

Maybe it's my main reason to be a little sick of going away from Nokia.

Google Maps is nothing more than a bull s**t!!
> Primarily, In Google Maps for Androids I cant save a place with the name I want to save it.
> Secondly, The Google Maps needs internet to save a place.

(Offline Concept: Save the place with the name user wants it to be on that very cordinates and download the info of place whenever internet is available)

And why the DUMB Google Maps doesnt speak turn by turn or will they ever speak like NOKIA??
Android Flavoured Navigations apps are just time waste.... :-(

Looks very good, currently using Nokia maps V3.08 from the beta labs on my Nokia N8, really like it. Look forward to switching to Windows when the N8 replacement comes out with Windows Phone 8.
