    Hi there,

    After much searching for a new phone, the Sola seems to fit my requirements.

    My main question is does anyone know why the Sola isn't in the shops or easily available to buy?

    It was released in Spring, and had some good reviews, but the only place I can find it for sale is ebay & amazon. Ideally I would like to see it before I buy it etc

    Anyone know why it's not around? Something terribly wrong with it or something?

    Cheers

    My guess is because it's too similar to the Xperia P. Most retailers currently offer the Sony S, P and U models which neatly fit into the top, middle, bottom price brackets. The Sola is very similar to the P but it has the 'floating touch' display technology. If retailers offered the Sola then it might cause confusion to buyers as well as impact on the sales of the slightly more expensive P.

    Hi David,

    Thanks so much for the reply, its really appreciated.

    That would make sense, after trying to find a phone, I cant believe how many different models sony ericsson have brought out.

    I've taken a punt on it, so hopefully it will ok.

    Cheers!
