Played with it at CES. Meh. It's already fizzled. If you wanna launch big and gain traction, you need to be able to roll that baby out globally in a big time coordinated fashion. You'll see some carrier pick up on it. Probably not enough. iPhone, Galaxy devices, BB10... that's your 2013 (continued) and new big hits.
I could be wrong of course. But probably not.

Nice looking phone, wish I could find one to play with.
Who's giving out the "Righter of all Wrong's" degrees around here?
Someone should have it up with their, "Hollyer than Thou" degree!

Re: Xperia Z... Will BB play catch up once again?
If you don't want to call them pushing misinformation let's use a correct synonym.....
I prefer to use a term.that describes the action.
Your preference may differ.
And why should I accept misinformation about lag in my SGIII when I don't experience it?
If I said that a full one third of 99xx devices nuke, as I experienced with the three out of my four, would you not correct that misinformation?

Again, at CES there were a bunch of companies showing off their waterproof coating technologies. Some were B2C, but a couple were B2B.. trying to sell to the OEMs. Will probably see more of this waterproofing come to devices.

Xperia Z... Will BB play catch up once again?
as thorsten said, we have to prove the OS in our device first before licensing (or something like that) it...
there ya go.. once it has proven its worth, i don't mind buying this (Sony) amazing 13MP waterproof BB10 device.
and once its out, i wonder how many will drop blackberry's device and jump to Samsung or Sony BB10 devices..

We had a similar claim a short time ago when an Android user claimed Maluba (a program available in the Play Store) was identified by his virus software as a virus. It was easily checked then as it is now. I would love that you give us the address of the "heavy page" that crashes Dolphin (a very good browser on Android and one I use daily without any trouble at all), give us the string of programs you find crashes your phone's OS.
I promise you if I find your claim to be correct I will come back to this thread and deliver the mea culpa that would be deserved. I am sure the others who are dubious about the claim would do the same.
If the OS was as buggy as all that, my belief is that there is no way Android would sell in the quantities it does. This OS is now 4 years old and if it was "laggy, buggy, crashy" as is claimed here all the time folks would tell their friends to stay away as they have on most poorly designed phones (and yes there have been some on Android - but more and more the modern high end phones are far from that). I had the pleasure to play with a Nexus 4 the other day and could not believe how incredibly fast that phone was, and was immediately jealous of it.
And to back up Q's claims of 3 nuked BB7 phones - BB7 was the first time ever I needed BB customer service (one time I had to replace a trackball on the 8820 but I did that myself). First 9810 the slider came loose and eventually untenable. 2nd one died/nuked could not get it back on in spite of spending a half hour with customer service who didn't believe me when I told her I had tried everything she was about to tell me to do. My third has been fine till now.

It is interesting that the Sony phones have never really come to the USA in any appreciable way as I believe Sony still has a good name in the USA.
The previous generations camera on the Sony were universally panned, and that's why Sony reworked for this release. Whats absolutely amazing about that is I believe the the phones that are considered to have the best current cameras the iPhone 4S (the 5 had the flare issues so I didn't include it), and the GSIII both have Sony internals and were considered much better than the Sony phones for picture quality. Apparently the sensor is only part of what makes a great camera, what the phone's software does with that information seems to be equally important.
I believe a lot of folks came away from CES with the same meh Kevin gave above.

Xperia Z seems very very interesting. Looks awesome, great screen and camera, dust and water resistant, walkman player.. Going by the views and likes on the youtube advertisement of Xperia Z, it is going to be quite popular
