i Have one of these as it has an ANT chip for connecting to heart rate monitors and speed and cadence sensors on my Bicycle. The battery life isnt good but It does generally last a Day.I dont like the position of the charging usb socket or the volume control.The in car holder preses on the volume when horizintal as its near the middle of the phone.I am looking forward to the ICS upgrade.

No mention here of Xperia SmartTags – which allow you to turn on apps or switch your smartphone settings with a single swipe.
