    Dude, I am cracking up right now. This is a 125 post thread. The title mentions a SONY WP8.1 by June. Your signature says SONY WP8.1 by June.

    Warren's tweet says JULY! And this is the first mention of it.
    That a massive whoops by myself I can't believe it for July that so long!

    I now got to change the title of this thread and my signature. :(

    And I was looking forward to June. :'(

    June, July...August...if they come at all, that's all I care.
    I just want SONY to spit out a Z2 compact with WP on it (or a Z1 Compact without the darn anti-shatter film in them).

    July pushing it for me since I need to upgrade my 710 (starting to have some serious issues) so I do hope to see a SONY device in June.

    They should make a Cybershot phone with a sliding cover or something.
    I miss those.

    SONY WP is fine and dandy. I would absolutely LOVE for them to make an MP3 Player based on WP though. I would be the first in line for one of those. On the phone side, I seem to gravitate more towards Sammy these days and the ATIV SE variation for AT&T would probably be my next phone. But SONY would most definitely be my Second Pick.

    I hope so, but I have to admit that LG phone looks very classy somehow. It sort of reminds me of my old Xperia Z - loved that thing except the flap on the head jacket.

    Let's see what Sony brings. And I hope they continue the 'mini' trend - that goes for both LG *and* Sony - 5" is nice but I wouldn't mind seeing something around the 4.3 - 4.5" marker

    Yes that LG Uni8 looks great reminds me of the Xperia Z design but different, I hope made out of aluminium not plastic!

    To be fair, that speaks more about the quality of Sony's assistance in the US than about the phones themselves. Though it's bad publicity, admitedly.
    Unfortunately, I've heard similar things about Nokia's Care assistance over here. So I think it depends on the idi...the representative that you deal with.

    I've never ever had a single complaint about Nokia's assistance. And to be honest I never had to use Sony's assistance on anything since the Sony TV I have is 20 years old and still going strong (admittedly my LCDs are from LG), a Sony Stereo I have is 17 years old and still going strong, and none of my PlayStations ever gave me any problem. The only assistance I had a less than good experience with was with Microsoft, actually, because I always have to send the things to the Netherlands as Microsoft doesn't have any sort of technical assistance in this country.

    Sony's poor assistance in the US may also be connected to the fact that Sony isn't that concerned about the US martket I'd guess? I highly doubt they'd be as popular as they are in Europe if their assistance was like that here.

    I brought my Xperia V to the Sony botique to replace the USB cover which won't close anymore, and it annoyed me like hell. The sles guy gave me the complete information of the Sony service center so I thanked him and I began to step out when he called my attention again and handed me another note with complete address for "3rd party service" and said "they're faster."

    I chose the 3rd party service, got my Xperia case refreshed too and I was happy.

    :D

    I'd go a Sony one over a Lumia 1320 if they released a similarly priced model.

    The only reason I'm hoping Sony makes a WP is for the Japan market. I'm moving there and the only thing I hate about it is that I'm going to lose my WP device.

    Only just saw this. A Sony Windows Phone equivalent to the Z2 with all their lovely Walkman tech would be just fantastic IMO.

    Thing is, it seems ill-timed considering their exit from the PC market. The Vaio lineup of Windows 8 devices seemed to be the best reason for them to have a complementary WP range.

    Actually, considering their Mobile Division is one of the few that is expected to turn them a profit (along with Insurance, Film and Gaming) I think it makes sense to bet on Windows Phone now, specially since Nokia is gone and many many many consumers outside the US will be looking for another OEM. And Microsoft is not at all the obvious choice for people here in Europe. Sony stands a better chance of grabbing the ex-Nokia users than Microsoft and it seems like a wasted opportunity not to do it.

    I'm becoming concerned with the lack of any leaks on these supposed Sony WP devices...it's not normal to not know about Sony devices before they're launched...

    Warren's timeline just seems to be completely wrong. He said the first GDR update for Wp8.1 would be coming in July, and WP8.1 hasn't even been released yet. It seems he tied the Sony devices to WP8.1 Update 1. So we'll see.

    I think we could expect some announcements at WPC (13-17 July).

    It's weird that there haven't been any leaks for the rumoured Sony WP, I guess it's probably a surprise.
