Sony Ericsson is losing cause they are releasing so many models that are not very good. They should concentrate on releasing a small number but of excellent quality phone every year.

N96 is nice and all but not enough to be the "real" successor of N95. Even though Nokia's holding a big share on the market, they should come up with something that have similar features like iPhone/android. The s60 OS needs some little make-up.
