The reason is simple. They want to attract people on the same day that Nokia gonna bring true camera innovations.

Consumers' needs evolve overtime

In the early 2000's , NOKIA can almost get away with everything for as long as it has a feature-packed camera function

Welcome to 2013....it's all about hardware muscle and gimmicky stuff

perhaps you want to take a peek at how well the Lumia line sold since its inception

u seem the one who wants to take a peak at how well lumia line is selling....according to official reports(both nokia and apple) its growth is a lot more than iphone and its taking the lead in countries pushing iphone out on these countries (india the third country (after us and china) using smartphone is one of them)

I was really excited for that, but could find anything :(
I hope this one isnt buildups

My next phone will probably be either the S4, One, Honami, Lumia 1020/909, G2 or maybe iPhone 5/5S (depending on how good iOS 7 is, havent had a good look at it yet but not really liking it).

good point :), but half of them aren't released yet, so I got to wait for them to be announced first.

if the pictures we saw of Xperia Z like phone is honami then im little let down, i was hoping for little change in design, i like the front of Xperia ZL and how its bezels are thin, could have used that atleast in honami.
none the less, i have waited for good phones for far too long this year, every phone had some drawbacks that have been released so far, this honami seems to be best match even with old design.
ill be getting that phone even if xperia z with new sensor and processor is so called honami.

As someone who's currently using a POS iPhone 3G (yes, I'm using that POS), I can't wait to get my hands on this thing and liberate myself once and for all from the Apple business model and locked down OS that won't even let me update any of the apps I have installed on my phone.

I totally dislike how Apple forces its customers to upgrade their devices because future iterations of their OS updates will not support legacy hardware.

What puzzles me about Sony is the displays on their smartphones. They are really just okay at best. One would think that because of the television business the displays would be in the top 3 but never. The Z is good but look at the contrast, brightness...I mean all the specs, I compared it to the optimus g pro and the htc one and its striking how much better the others are. Oh by the way why does everyone bust the the balls of HTC for not marketing or spending enough cash..when was the the last time you saw a television commercial for a Sony phone? HTC 10 billion dollar company vs Sony a 80 billion dollar company.
