  • The tear down article says availability ”May”. Sucks the back is plastic, should have been glass.

    Can’t wait for in depth reviews. Should get on on October.

  • It’s so expensive.. 85,470 Yen and in Php Currency took around 34,500+ Pesos.. Good Specs, Classy look Tablet but too pricey for me.. that’s real downside for Sony, they just focus high class society not including low-mid… i prefer to buy iPad or samsung than which is more cheaper 20k+ or even 14k for iPad mini.. lol

    It’s £399 for 16GB and £449 for the 32GB version in the UK. These prices are fare compared to the competition!

    I thought it was fibre glass?

  • Xperia S Android 4.1.2 Jelly B

    Xperia S JB SONY?


    Imagine how heavy it would be if 2 sides were made of glass >.<
    Though each to their own preference. No doubt having both sides made of glass would give it a very classy solid feel =3

    Everyone is constantly complaining about the price quoting a number out of context.

    The 32GB WiFi Mode is basically $500-600 (I bought one) which is a reasonable price in this market.

    You can’t compare one country’s carrier product with another one as well as you can’t just convert one currency to another. Carrier product prices in Japan are not the effective prices; prices will always be high to encourage people to go through a carrier’s main channels. Currencies should always take purchasing power parity into account.

    I’ve had a fair amount of hands on time with both the Docomo LTE/1-seg version and the Global Wifi version. The WiFi version is much lighter making an extremely thin and light-weight mind-blowing device. Too bad it doesn’t come in funky colours like the purple.
