Sony Xperia S available beginning of March, already on preorder

You can actually preorder now for the fairly expected price of around $700 unlocked, which, as these things go, will likely translate to $100 or so bucks lower in the US. Of course, the US has the Sony Xperia ion on AT&T's LTE network to worry about, but it shouldn't be far behind.
Just a refresher - both phones have HD screens and dual-core chipsets - all firsts for the company, along with the strictly Sony logo, again a novelty for its handsets, after the break-up with Ericsson. Unfortunately, the Xperia S ships with Gingerbread, which should turn into Android ICS in Q2 of this year. We made a bunch of camera and video samples with the unit we handled at CES, to aid your decision.
- Display 4.3" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 12.1 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S3, Dual-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB
- Battery 1750 mAh(8.50h 3G talk time)

That video showed the main thing I do not like about Android at the moment. I have a Transform and my wife has an Optimus S and I always mix up telling her how to find something. In the video he started saying he was going into settings but it was a different setup from his usual phone evidently. I do the same thing as well I hope once ICS hits more this clears up.
