I don't know much about the Xperia one, but I've gotten my hands on a Galaxy S2 and it is a nice, smooth piece of hardware. Consistently tops out most cellphone benchmarks out there too, although the Galaxy Nexus is finishing close as well and has a higher resolution screen(although I hear it's not quite as vibrant as the Galaxy S2). So you might want to consider that one as well. Not sure what you can get on that one in terms of price.
I think it'll be about $800 so there's no way i'm getting that over a $500 galaxy s2. I'm leaning towards the s2 at the moment but i've read really good things about the xperia. My main concern with it is that it's got a single core processor, everything i've heard about it is that it can more than handle anything that's thrown at it these days. just worried that it might not be all that future proofed considering i'll most likely have this phone for 2 years or so.
So I tried VLingo. At first it seemed ok. But after awhile, it stopped working, and reading my text messages aloud in my car is dangerous territory...
So I deleted it. Was hoping for it to be more like Siri, and less like crap.
I still use Vlingo and I love it. It's definitely not Siri by any means but I love Car Mode. It's all I use it for.
I use the Google Voice search for all the other voice activated functions on the phone.
(Setting alarms, calender updates, navigation, etc)
It allows for 2 way texting without ever taking your eyes off the road. I don't know how you could dislike that.
I don't see how that could be more dangerous than actually texting either.
(Unless it's from the playa playa perspective)
Actually, I place my phone on Car Mode when I'm playing MW3 since as soon as I look down to check my phone, someone kills me.
This has helped a little bit but not much. I still suck at MW3.

I did a manual update to 2.3 weeks back, but I guess because gingerbread is finally being issued through automatic updates, my phone keeps telling me I can upgrade to 4.0, but when I click 'update now' it just sits there with the "rebooting now" prompt but nothing happens.
from what i've heard/read, 4g (at least on the LTE network), assuming a strong signal, is typically faster than most people's wifi (a big side benefit for me is being able to dump comcast for internet and just tether to my phone at home).
Max speed is 50x5 (down by up) I think. And that's with over 100 latency average.
My home is 50x5, but actually regularly hits 50x5 instead of averaging like 25x1 or something that LTE does unless you have a perfect signal. I average a latency in the 25-30 range.
So, my home internet is still significantly better than 4G LTE service, but it's kind of nice to have... if you don't mind the 70+ a month for a single service line.
Has anyone played with google music yet? you can store up to 20k songs in the cloud and access it on any android device. I'm uploading my itunes play list now.
I have it and have now gotten rid of my antiquated Zune... Yes I bought a Zune.
Personally I love it. I had it on my last phone (Samsung Fascinate) and it was slow, buggy and just a pain to use. Since I switched to the Nexus its great. No load time between songs, built in equalizer and just all around awesomeness.
As descendency said though if you have a data cap it can be a burden and take up a ton of it. Though Google Music does allow you to download songs from the cloud at any point. So you can download 5-10 albums at home on your wifi connection and never use your data.
