+1. I hate the iPhone and Apple, but the fact is the iPhone is still the hottest gadget going fashion wise and in the mind of American culture. This little piece of nerd jewelry is hardly likely to make a dent in that.

For every lover of the Iphone there is a hater so there is a market for this.

Day one. :)

This is gonna replace my iphone so i guess it is 'cooler'.

This is something I can pop out and not be seen like a f nerd.

Xperia > Iphone, Os, gaming, batery, nothing moar to say.

I don't want a phone to make me look 'cool' or to be 'cooler' than the iphone, I just want a phone that does everything quickly and efficently.

How about talking about that or about the gaming side of it or battery life or more on the inner details.

Put me right off with..."much cooler than using an iPhone"

If you were interested, wouldn't you researched that out already?...

Batery for gaming last around 5 and half a hour, don't know phone focus on the batery, but for gaming alone it rape iphone off.

Spec pretty much can be comparable to iphone 4 nothing much, but I just want to use this offroad and ngp on my home, there.

They'd be better off hyping what it can do than hyping it as "cooler" or an iPhone "killer". I think comparisons like that especially to the iPhone which is cleary groundbreaking do a disservice to any new platform.

How many times have anything hyped as a X killer EVER come through on that?Honestly I cant think of one example but can think of tons that have failed.

Well it depends. The app store is what makes the iPhone.

So if PlayStation Suite really evolves into something as impressive then it could be. As of now the Xperia is a technically sound device, and competing with the top dogs tech wise (except for the new dual core processor phones).

But PlayStation Suite needs to start off with PS1 classics, PS Minis, and User generated content such as apps/games/etc...

Afterward it needs to gain a larger community of developers for more user generated content, and add PSP games, PS2 games, and PSN games all of which should be able to run on such a phone.

Don't forget you also get the android market.

They need to come out with some native games from some major publishers, otherwise its useless.

NFS:Shift (which already exists - but in a PSS version, incl. controls), some Ubi title and a great shooter.

Plus all the PS1 classics and stuff.
