Agree about Xperia Ion and eve Xperia S releasing later than both should've been.And use of gingerbread.They should've released ION right after mwc and they might've made a fortune and stole some of GS3 buyers too,instead they failed big time buy thinking to release it later so Xperia S won't get hit.
So they gonna release Ion too on gb,if yes that's bizarre and stupid.Even Xperia S should've been released with ICS,big FAIL that it came with gb and its getting ICS update after 2011 portfolio Arc S,Neo V & Ray.I am grateful that sony gave us ICS first but in a business point of view they should upgrade their newest flagship phones first.
And the next dumb thing is they only announced GX at Japan :/ and no release date for rest of the world,GX can be the light they need if they do it correctly.If they release GX now to compete with S3 I'm pretty sure sony will win cos S3 was not up to the expectations of most people comparing to S2,note.I mean come on other than few hardcore users I don't think most of users even want a quad core in their phone with outdated hardware like 8mp cam,crappy design(even comparing to S2).I mean come on tell me any of us gonna use a smartphone as a complete replacements for pc's ? for a quad core I got my i5 760.Why would I need a quad core in train,bus or park ? and contrary to all of S3's down side GX pawns all(except maybe be processor,but that's not a very big issue).But hey Sony gonna mess this chance too by releasing GX too late :/
Sony/Sony Ericsson always missed the deadline when it comes to releasing the phones at the right time,starting from maybe I dunno W995i.
