PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's pretty clear Samsung is keeping Bada/Tizen around as a possible future escape clause in case Android and/or Google goes nuts. Sony doesn't have an alternative to Android - which it may need soon, since its Android smartphones and tablets aren't doing particularly well. As such, Sony's new CEO Kazuo Hirai has hinted that the operating system of the Playstation Vita may make its way to smartphones and tablets.

My budget was limited when I started my budget phone research. Sony was one of the most over priced/expensive phone against the phones from Samsung, LG and HTC and I settled on Samsung Galaxy. For my wife I still purchased SONY Xperia phone however I am disappointed with their Android strategy. I have received 3 firmware upgrades to my Samsung Galaxy phone but Sony has not released yet a single firmware upgrade!
Sony days are over, they used to give premium quality products like -- TV, Music System, Home Theaters, Walkmans, Camera's and people used to buy them at higher price because of quality, features and class... now Samsung, LG offer the same quality, Class at reasonable price why one will buy SONY?
