    No probs Gabby, I'll think I'll stick with buymobiles. On a side note has anyone read anywhere if Sony are pre-sticking on the screen protectors on the S like they did for some of their other Xperia's? Because that would be friggin sweet.

    Looking at some of the unboxing videos it looks as though Sony aren't attaching the screen protectors themselves but are including one in the box.

    I think like the Arc a shatter proof sheet will already be applied to the screen with a spare in the box.

    thanks for that jase

    reading through it looking good im not a fan of port flaps either i tend to get very annoyed with them so will prob end up snapping it off lol

    like the look of the homescreens though

    great that the screen protector is already on why are people asking if they can put their own one on you wouldnt have to?

    My one and only concern about the Xperia S is the touch sensitive buttons just above the transparent element...there have been some reports of them being very much hit and miss, as stated on the Xperia blog.

    Hmmm....will they even be used when the S gets ICS? Also don't a lot phones have a touch sensitive section on the bottom eg Sensation XE?

    Sim free I couldn't tell you, but on contract delivery estimate is within 8 days on some sites, I guess sim free will be sooner if anything

    ICS on screen buttons are optional, so if the phone already has soft buttons they surely won't use on screen buttons, it wouldn't make any sense.

    The cheapest sim free I could find shipped (to the US) is Handtec, and they're expecting to start shipping next week.

    Some retailers are saying it'll be released next Tuesday. I'm not holding my breath but it'd be awesome if I had one by this time next week.

    Just an update: I rang Buymobiles and the lady said that for O2 they are getting their delivery on Tuesday 6th March, to despatch asap. I'll wait a few more days then and see if they can deliver by mid next week.

    I'm back in the room! I couldn't resist so re-ordered the s in white from clove. Still got the Htc one x on pre-order mind but the Sony was too good not to try.

    If in a month I still want the Htc then I will try both for a few days and then put one of them on eBay!

    :eek:

    Ordered the white one from Clove too. Hopefully they will have delivery on Monday so I can have it by Tuesday/Wednesday. I hate all this waiting, especially as it has now been released.
