Good: I see almost nothing. I would not expect a phone like that from sony branded.
Bad: Keyboard unbelievably uncomfortable, overall bad quality, necessity of using a stylu
Comment: Don't believe it is Sony!!! I received it as an unwanted gift. I am going to change for the other one. This time maybe htc. Or Orange San Francisco I am sure to be better that this phone.
Good: Glorious touch screen
Bad: Windows Mobile
Comment: Brilliant phone, but it needs touchflo installed to get rid of the need of a stylus. It crashes the odd time but as a first release of firmware its not as bad as my old N95 was when it first launched. The brilliant screen makes up for everything!
Good: Pannels, nice idea
Bad: You get nothing of substance for its size
Comment: Bought one this morning from Carphone Warehouse, took it straight back in the afternoon. Felt like I was using an old Ipaq pda! Apart from the "Pannels/windows" view, its the same Windows mobile - feels outdated compared to whats available now. Sluggish, screen very small, overall operaitions very fiddly. Camera very bad as is Video...Speaker sound very low and tinny (Blackberrry bold puts it to shame - in so many different areas.). Just did not understand what I was getting extra for the size of the device. There are loads more phones cheaper and can do same or better....Oh I forgot to mention, they keyboard feels too wide, and keys are too sunk in...
Good 8 months ago maybe...
