    Hmmm. Battery life and lack of updates have been the problems with Sony handsets. No word on battery specs yet?

    given sony's past i will be surprised if they ever update it wanting to make people buy new phones instead, they might pull a PS3 update like where they used to allow people to pay ps2 games and then take functionality that was paid for away.. sorry sony but you keep burning your customers and done to much damage to your brand name for me to ever consider/reccomend buying your products

    If I didn't hate large screened phones, i'd get this. Those nice specs, and it's waterproof.
