Having just made news with its sales numbers Sony Ericsson looks to be holding true to its promise to do things better in 2011 if the latest device leakage is anything to go by. The Sony Ericsson Vivaz 2 (or whatever it goes to market as) has found its way into the hands of Mobile-review and if you're willing to give Sony Ericsson another shot at impressing you, the review has nothing but nice things to say about it. 

The 1GHz Qualcomm MSM7630 sports Adreno 205 graphics and has 512MB of RAM on board, while a 1500mAh battery powers the 854 x 480 reality display. No idea as to when or where this thing will show up but we're tossing it out there that Mobile World Congress might be a good place to start.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz 2 gets previewed ahead of release


Am I the only one that thinks releasing a single core phone that you want to be considered high end is, at this point, a dumb idea? Between CES, and the upcoming MWC/CTIA, are there going to be any carriers without at least one, if not 2+ multicore options?

Granted, it looks like this will not be the super high end option anyway, but still. For a company trying to change their image, high end hardware+high end/fast updated software is the way to go.

The Vivas isn't really a high end phone but you're right. Anything short of a Dual Core phone is a little redundant when you think this phone is months from release.

SE doesn't compete with other manufacturers by keeping up with current market trends, instead it will use brand names (cydershot, walkman and now Bravia) to generate sales and profit.

I know them all too well... I'd wait until 2012 for the third generation SE Android phones because there must be something SE will remove from these great phones that will drive everyone crazy.

To understand the underlying causes of such a positive review you need to perfectly understand the level of relations between Murtazin and Sony Ericsson. Murtazin most of the time in his articles, blog and site lowered the SE as low as he could and then suddenly he gets an exclusive world-wide. It would be strange to expect truth from this review.
