    I am posting this question here because there is no category for the Sony Xperia V. I just ordered one off Amazon. When I found that there is no category on here for the model V, it worried me that I made bad choice. Also, I have been looking for a ruggedized case for it, but there are very few accessories for it. Is there something about the Sony Xperia V that I should know?

    Reported this to Admin to see what we can do about getting a forum for this device.
    As of now, I'll get this moved to the Suggestion Box. :)

    We had a discussion area for your V but it was closed and archived due to lack of traffic.
    Here is a link to the one thread in that area: Sony Xperia V - Android Forums
    I know nothing about the V... but I do hope it serves you well.

    Thank you. Is there some reason that there is very little discussion about it? I mean like, it is an international phone that was never officially released in the US, or something like that? I once bought a Lenovo laptop off Tigerdirect that was like that. Just asking?

    The Xperia V isn't listed on Sony's US support site so I suspect that it didn't receive an official release there. It certainly wasn't released in the UK.

    When it comes to cost vs specs, the Xperia V, was the best deal I could find by a wide margin. But now I am worried. I can't find much about it on the web. There are very few reviews or discussion about. Where would I go to find out where it was officially released? Maybe I could find some users talking about it in those countries. Thanks

    Thanks for the links guys. I feel better now. The benchmark test on the xperia V show to be faster then then most of it's competitors, like the S3 and HTC One X. Xperia V Benchmarks.

    The biggest complaint is the battery life, but that holds true for most smartphone in general. I am excited to see it and try out that 13MP camera!

    If it makes you feel any better, the Xperia V is a really popular phone here in Spain, especially with the younger 20-25 crowd! You've made a good choice, and I especially like the keyboard design that comes with it! Vin.
