What's up with the 2 chicks in the pic? They look really weird, is the picture distorted or something ? Maybe too much cosmetic surgery they are having, I really don't know, What's your take on this? Dude this freaked me out man.

Anyways Sony better start looking first at it's display showcase models before going on a buying spree. Thanks

Goodluck to Sony, it seems they are the only ones doing something anyway. I hope they catch up to making a good "ecosystem" for consumers.

unless pure sony comes up with something better and cheaper than the iphone, it doesn't matter if they gobble up ericsson or not, they are doomed. how can they not see that? are they that dumb? and all the stuff they make is so unjustified pricey.

SONY might just stand a chance in this market with the sad demise of Mr. Jobs. But being the genius he was, Jobs had probably planned and designed the next decade or two of iPhones. Can the Japanese succeed against those all-conquering, mighty Yanks?

@southsakai: that photo was taken with a wide-angle lens, which is not intended for portrait-type photos. It tends to stretch out things that are are the periphery of the frame.

Sony has a long way to go !!!! Mobile video game console ???? Didn't nintendo create that already ??? Sorry Sony I'm not interested in a new version of the PSP. Let's go beyond the future instead of creating that same crummy thing with alitle flash and dazzle.

Think forward not backwards !!!!!!! That's why Apple blew them away !!!! Throwing money at it will not solve anything.

Stop it with the 3D stuff already. Think holograms or something that we do not need ugly eyeglasses to wear.

I think making 3d is the first step to making holograms

@Southsakai, Agreed the pics of the two babes is weird . I believe it's their chokers on the necks with the partnership name. That's why it's such a good pic in an unintended way.............. break the partnership to give it life.
