    I think Sony needs to rethink their strategy. This phone appears to offer nothing more than what the Nokia N95 8gb does (except higher camera resolution which very few people would value). Rather with a smaller screen and the 8gb as an external memory it rivals the N95 which is available for half the price. The N95 for introduced more than an year ago and Nokia has moved on since them.

    Sony has clearly lost their strategic advantage in coming up with innovative technologies. Another example is their loosing battle in LCD/LED TV’s. It appears both their product strategy and their sales strategy are wrong.
