White variants always make the bezels look bigger. Pick black to create an illusion of slimmer bezels or other back colors that have black on their fronts. And that is if you really want a phone but the bezel is not quite slim! :)

Half of the phone is just bezel...And they could bring on something new design, beacause it´s fairly hard to distinguish from other Xperia phones.

Sony´s name equals with stylish high-end technology in peoples mind. I didn´t say this design is ugly, but I would willingly see something new (same with Samsung), and a thin bezel makes you feel that you´re holding something futuristic (what doesn´t depend on price).

I thought I was the only one having problems distinguishing xperia phones. And they can also change their naming scheme from letters to actual names like the acro. Those letters are hard to distinguish and remember.

Hey PA! Any details or a profile on your site for the Xperia C? That one is a sure Galaxy Grand competitor!

I know about this article what I want is actual price and release dates and a profile of this device on in this site for me to compare it side by side with other phones such as the Galaxy Grand.

Last year it was the NXT design taking prominent space in Sony phones.
Now it's the Xperia Z's design taking seat...i guess i can't only blame Samsung for using it's design too much now.

Sorry guys, but this has been up for ages on the UK Sony Mobile website. I'm not allowed to post the link, but head over to "sonymobile dot com slash gb slash products slash phones" if you want.

Incidentally, I'm amazed that nobody has commented on the "non announcement" in Paris yesterday - everyone was fired up for the Honami / i1, and it turned out to be a drinks evening for local reporters!

Hey, dwroberts,

Care to elaborate? The Sony GB site that you listed (incidentally, the same that I referred to in the article) shows the Sony Xperia M as 'coming soon'?

Hi Chris,

Sorry, I was just trying to be helpful since the post closed by saying that "the device has yet to make an appearance anywhere else that we looked, including Sony's site".

My bad!

PS - Still amazed how quickly the Honami excitement has just ebbed away. I was really looking forward to a post-Z handset!

Screw the Xperia M. Whatever happened to all the hoopla about the Honami's press event yesterday? No one seems to have any information about it.....

If its cheaper than the Xperia L then its a great phone...since the Galaxy Ace 3 will be more expensive, i guess this will be a success like the Xperia L
