ConsSlow start-up procedure, no flash on camera

The world of mobile telecommunications these days is a complicated one. Not because of the satellites involved, or the are-they-or-aren't-they-carcinogenic transmitters that litter our landscape these days in order for us to speak and text. Nor is it complicated because of the array of different...

This is a neat, stylish, high-spec phone. As you'd expect from the Walkman brand, it's fantastic as a music player. You can control your tracks from the touchpad on the top and the sound quality is great, especially since in-ear noise-cancelling headphones are included as standard. There are also...

I tested this in Australia. It is astonishing. The wi-fi (via HSDPA) connection is phenominal making web browsing and email a pleasure. videos are great as is the whole audio set up. the headphones are really cool and relaying the sound through a bluetooth sub and satellites was awesome. Looks great, sounds great and works like a charm. Where can I buy one?
