We are seeing the first user report of an Xperia being bought in the wild. Easycure1974 has reported that he has just walked out of Phonehouse (Swedish version of Carphonewarehouse) with an Xperia, and he recorded these impressions:
30 minutes ago I was at Phonehouse and got my Experia. It is the Swedish retail version, it came with the usual stuff but no case but with 4 GB micro sd card in the phone.
The memory seems to be 256 and not 384 as reported. The build qualtiy is outstanding, makes my Touch Pro and Touch Diamond feels very cheap and plastic.
And it for sure feels quicker than the TP when doing things, the panels are a bit slow but everything else is very fast. Installded the full Mobile shell 2.1 on it and it flies 🙂
The lesson obviously is that if you want an Xperia right now, get on the plane to Sweden 🙂
