Setting aside looking for ETA's, now that a few people have them in their hands, is there a developing consensus of where this phone may end up on the spectrum of developer support?

Well, you never know until you have a device in your hands, but everything looks positive so far.

I received more honest and accurate answers to technical questions from Sony engineers in the first week of having the T than I did in more than a year of dealing with Samsung.

With CM10 on the T, while there are still a few glitches to polish out, there's nothing in the category of "there's no way in hell I'll ever fix this ****".

CM10.1 on the T isn't quite where anyone hoped it would be, but this was partly due to an experiment (fully rebasing it onto Mako sources) that didn't quite pan out. With any device, in its first few months of existence, time is needed to build an understanding and knowledge of the device.
From a developer standpoint, inclusion of a Qualcomm-based device in AOSP with the Nexus 4 was both a blessing and a curse. A blessing in terms of having the same (or similar) SoC as a Nexus, a curse in terms of having not one but TWO potential places to find reference source - which do you choose? Yes, with the T the challenge is not enough platform reference source, it's actually too much - while it consumes a bit of time in the short term, in the long term, that's a GOOD problem to have. Compare to Exynos4, where we have a grand total of 0 viable places to go for platform reference source. (No AOSP, and Insignal's source is outdated ****)

Also, with the T, there are a lot of new developers coming up to speed with Sony in general - many of those T developers either have or will be getting the Z.

With the Exynos-based Galaxy S2 and S3 families, the more we came to understand and know the device(s) and platform, the more we hated them. With the T - the more I get to know it, the more I like it, and I expect the same from the Z.

I'd expect, barring any weird surprises, that since this device shares the same SoC as the Nexus 4, it's going to be in a similar category to the original GalaxyS family - those were "devices that just wouldn't die" due to having the same SoC as the Nexus S - but it DID take them a while to get there.

Just wanted to know something.... Xperia Z and ZL have the same configuration so flashing a Z ROM on ZL be ok and would it work properly?? The reason I am asking this is because in the dev section for ZL there are no post (literally) and because of some reasons I preffered ZL over Z (hate fingerprint smudges).
So are the devs going to give preference to Z over ZL???

PS - I know this belongs in general section but seeing so many devs here, I wanted an answer from you guys... Sorry and Thanks!!

Well, I don't make CM, but I'll also support the ZL for my roms and kernels

There are slight differences. Direct cross-flashing probably won't work. However getting the ZL working shouldn't be hard for someone - same deal as with T v.s TX.

Problem actually was that we did not know of the ZL section here on XDA.

We will post a ROM soon now the section happened to be there. But can it be that the section is not on the forum list or is it just me?

Maybe not completely related to CM10.1, but still want to see what dev's think. I was browsing the Sony source code this afternoon and again now, and was wondering about, while I first stumbeled upon the Quake source code within the Sony source drop. Quite funny actually .

Anyway, I was still wondering about the camera quality that everyone was explaining about. So I found out that images are currently encoded as Ybpbr, while I read somewhere that the Exmor R sensor in the Sony is actually a RGB sensor. So that seems quite odd to me. Maybe some dev can look into it?
