So they have now started using shitty names for their mobile phones too?

----------

how long before they realize that the walkman brand is pretty much dead. kids today are more used to ipods than walkmans.

looks nice.but sony really does make good walkman phones with surprisingly better sound quality.i think the the walkman and android combination would work for them provided the phone has the latest android. ;)

Last year after long wait, I had bought this phone.

Phone feature wise is excellent. I have upgraded it to ICS. Its stable and fast with ICS as well.

Battery is poor BUT if you root it and remove Facebook and Yahoo mail app. It lasts about 2 and half days. (standby)

With non-stop 3G use, battery drains in 2 to 3 hrs.

BUT BUT.. SONY SERVICE IN INDIA IS HORRIBLE!! HORRIBLE MEANS REALLY REALLY HORRIBLE.

SO I WOULD SAY DO NOT BUY SONY PHONES TILL THEY HAVE OFFICIAL SONY SERVICE CENTERS and not a 3rd party tie up.

iPods are more famous now a days compared to walkman, but the music quality in walkman is mind blowing, no comparison with iPodDo try the "Mega Bass" feature in walkman

Yes, I compared it with iPod. Sound was equal if not better. That made me wonder, why people buy ipod! :D

Abt bad experience, touchscreen had gone bad. They didnt repair it for 1 month. They kept on saying wait 2-3 days for days and days. They never do a PROMISED call back. They never answer your email. (except stating that it will be responded in 3 business days)

They blame all this mess on SONY and Ericsson split.

And what more, I checked there official forum (which is run by UK moderators). People are ALL COMPLAINING ABOUT Sony India and horrible experience. Guys are complaining abt 3 months of delay!!

So as of now, if you are purchasing Sony mobiles. PLEASE DO NOT!
