Sony “Tapioca” LT21i leaks show some mid-range deliciousness

We saw Sony’s entire 2012 smartphone range leak last week including the Kumquat, and now there is proof of a number of new Sony-branded devices coming to market later this year.

The “Tapioca” LT21i should have a 3.2-inch HVGA (320×480 pixels) display, 800Mhz processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal memory storage, a 3.2MP camera, Bluetooth and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n (2.4Ghz). Though initially destined for Asian and European markets, we could see it coming to Canada to rival LG and Samsung’s low-end offerings.

Also up for grabs is the Sony Nypon, which also comes across as a low- to mid-range device. No specs on this one, but it definitely appeals to the Xperia arc lover in me. A 1000nits backlit display is expected on the Nypon, so it should be incredibly easy to read in direct sunlight.

    3.2″ HVGA is midrange? I beg to differ. I think at least 3.7″ with 800×480 should be a mid-range phone.

    Why are they wasting time on this low end garbage?
    When I was growing up, Sony was a premium brand that made only made awesome products. You would pay twice as much for Sony electronics because they were indeed on the bleeding edge of what was possible. Now they have a million different products, and none of them are outstanding. They’re just a me-too company making average products.
    I can’t think of one product category where Sony is the leading company. Maybe 3D-TV? Yeah, how well is that doing?

    I think this would be considered low range

    Sony should do the following: Make 2, maybe 3 devices. The “high end”, the “Play line”, and the “mid”. They need to STOP with the stupid shatter proof films they put on their screens. They scratch too easily, and if removed they leave the screen feeling like garbage. Use mineral glass still, or move up to gorilla glass, but start using oleophobic coating for that premium feel. STOP giving the user only like 300mb or so for app storage, and STOP with the odd digitalizer multi touch choices (x10 supports 1 finger, 2 through software…then their next flagship the Arc supports 4 on a massive 4.3″ screen…the the Ray with its tiny 3.3″ screen supports 6??? WHY?) Other then that they are doing an ok job. Previous owner of the x10, Arc, and Ray. Currently own a Galaxy Nexus and its amazing.

    Too bad they didn’t pop a 5mp cam and 1 ghz processor, then I’d see it as mid-range.

    Ever since I had a stress broawdekn case in near the end of my 9th grade year in high school, I’ve never been able to recall anything to the great magnitude I had before.Before my stress case, I was able to tell people anything that happened during the day: from what was on their desk to the vocabulary words on the board. I would even go to cities I’ve never been before and I remember my way back home.However, it’s been 2 years now, and I have a lot of trouble remembering if I have even spoke to someone that day. It frustrates me that before my stress case, I relied heavily on my vast memory recall. Now, I can’t remember a darn thing.***My question is, is it possible to lose this vast memory recall?***P.S. Also, is good memory recall linked to puberty? I mean, if your body and brain is growing exponentially, wouldn’t that mean the brain had more room to store things, and therefore you would just naturally remember a lot of things?
