Previously known as the Sony Hayabusa, the manufacturers new flagship model, aka the LT29i, will now and forever be referred to as the Sony Xperia TX; this is not to be confused with the Sony Xperia T which had been known as the Sony Mint...

I liked what they did with their first phones without Ericsson, but they really need to step it up for these ones, Where is the cool floating glass part of the original? And please tell me they are incorporating CDMA antennas into some models, as they are missing more than half of the US market by avoiding the technology.
Once they actually design a phone that looks good and has true top of the line specs, then I will be more angry, but with the small battery and ram I'm glad they are not available at my carrier!

I just don't understand. With all their perceived superiority in technical expertise in electronics, how they fall behind that of Samsung and HTC year after year after year and always play catch-up game. I've got one friend who's bought the Xperia S, but he willingly concedes that it's an inferior phone technically compared to Galaxy and One X, but bought it just to be unique. Sony phones are all what it is today, just the uniqueness. Hope they turn it around with a ground-breaking hardware.

I understand your point. Sony really is launching their first Xperia line designed and prepared completely without Eriksson, so this should be the Sony we all are hoping for. This really should be a GS3 competitor like no other company can put out. I am excited to see their efforts. They are on my shortlist for Android. I love what they might bring on an elite device.

I for one am excited for this phone after the galaxy S3's disappointing marginal upgrade I've been waiting for something better to come out, and here it is. Hopefully the 13 mp camera will be up to par but in terms if software & hardware this should be ankle to give the HTC One x and the galaxy s3 a run forheir money. I'm really excited to see what Sony has in store for us in the future. One of the biggest selling points that Sony has is they're devices are going to be 'PlayStation certified' which means exclusive better quality games that Android lacks because of android's open source policy they typically get less developers wanting to make games.

There was talk of licensing out the playstation certification to other Android phones that have the specs to handle it.

True but you know that most if not all of sony's phones are going to be playstation certified.

i think the specs are good but why sony only put 177mAh battery? i think it should be higher than 200mAh since its a LTE device....

i wish sony bring back the cybershot technokigies on there smartphones!

i could still remember the rivalry of sony ericson cybershot k800i and nokia camera phones
