    Too thick. Compare that to an iPhone. Jeesh. Sony lost its mojo in creating breakthrough products. I used to be a Sony fan 8 years ago with all their innovations like the PlayStation series, VAIO, and televisions. Tsk. Wake up Sony!

    • well that’s the problem. people are comparing everything to iphone and apple is suing everyone who’s copying their iphone. these phones aren’t made to be thin. not everyone want’s a thin phone anyway. it has its own market.. those who are not looking for a phone that looks like the iphone. 😉
