Hi,
I'm nandhu from India, I'm very craze of Sony Ericssons's mobile. I've planned to buy Sony Ericsson's ARC S from Dubai but the promotions for such kinda mobiles are too low, the hype is only for iphone or Samsung or Blackberry here. Most of the hyper market like Lulu or Carrefour dont evn have this mobile. Why is that ? Is this a failure model ?? Is there any major drawbacks for this mobile ?? Is the service a disappointing one ?? Can you please suggest your thoughts on this.

Hey.. denial is part of the recovery process. Best of luck with your redundant, proprietary device :)

I am just playing with you, but for real, I hope for Apple's sake they make a phone that's different than every other iPhone with the 5. My #1 requirement in a phone is the camera and no other manufacturer can ever touch Sony (sometimes Nokia is close).

IMHO, there is the difference between an iPhone user and a non-

Androids et al users are more into the differences, specs, speed, yada-yada... while myself (an Apple fan boy :) ) am more into the interface, experience, integration of how my information, connectivity, etc are completely seamless between my phone, tablet, computer, TV, etc.

Things just work together nicely without any fuss, and allow me to enjoy using them instead of constantly working on configuring them :rolleyes:

Only if you actually use the pictures taken by your phone in manner other than post on Facebook / etc ;)

Yea you have some valid points... Just like a MAC vs a PC user. An iPhone is great out of the box fuss with no fuss but comes with many limitations for the "exploring" type user. But with a bit of exploration, my phone interfaces amazingly well! Especially in terms of connectivity, wireless media server, even has HDMI out :)

As for pictures, YES all the time. I personally hate facebook. I love taking pictures wherever I go, so the better the camera phone the more of a purpose my phone actually has! 12.1MP with true xenon flash and 1080p video is pretty sweet to have in a phone... In fact I consider the phone a FREE bonus :)

Perhaps Android market has shifted to more handled mobiles phone such as HCT and Samsung.
Anyways, you can order online.

Hi a newbie here I think Sony Erikkson as a brand have not kept up with the latest technologies either be it the software, agreed they have great cameras but unlike the rotten fruit ;-) or crackberry they have failed to realise that technology has moved on

In my opinion, is because there isnt the special promo 'packages' advertised the way they are with blackberry or iphones everywhere. And those packages, especially because the sms are so expensie here and no real package, tend to be quite important.
