if this phones is s60 possible that i can install skyfire application right?
here in U.A.E for me skyfire is very important hahahahahah!!!
hMMMMMMMM... the hardware design looks okey but the OS there are using is an outdated SYMBIAN. i thought there are going to use an android OS for this one. Android is much better than SYMBIAN for sure.but its a good start for SE for this year.having HD recording in this phone would be great lets just wait and see if this thing could attract consumers.
Android VS Symbian
It would seem that this comment section has boiled down to the claim of 'the better OS.'
For all the features and media hype the Android has in the websphere, Symbian still dominate the actual SALES. For all of android's ingenuity, Symbian trumps it in versatility and reliability. No other OS knows telephony, high-speed network, and battery utilization like Symbian.
I want an OS that gives me ALL the options at a single click (hello OPTIONS softkey), with a long battery life to boot.
Symbian works. Now if you want EYECANDY, that is another matter....
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2010i think the reason SE choose Symbian is because Symbian has more features than Android.
and ... moreSymbian has more applications, better features that fullfil requirements of public and as guys over Symbian are working to bring new live into it, it will shine better once all the updates are done. Sadly it will take too much time.
Android needs lot more time to mature. Reason of its success is Google's tag, just like Apple's goodwill is behind iPhone. Personally I don't feel comfortable having Googles nearby.
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2010When will they learn??? S60 is pure fail, if this is a android 2.1, I would buy it in a hear... morei think the reason SE choose Symbian is because Symbian has more features than Android.
and that's what the market want. more features on their smartphones.
Like FireDragon said, I'm using my P1 sometimes too because UIQ really is good. If it still existed we probably would have version 5 today.
Regarding Vivaz, when I first saw the leaked photo of the prototype, I just thought Sony Ericsson really had left the building, and then comes the next shocker with the fugly Faith. Now with the offical images I definitely have faith again but not in Faith though :(
Vivaz may be my next investment along with X10 :)
Whats wrong with you people,if u dnt like s60 os on this phone.leave it be.SE isnt stupid to make a phone with s60 jaz for the sake of making a phone,they still believe the business essential of having s60 on their portfolios.s60 is stl the most sought after Mobile OS.android phones havent show yet its success in terms of selling point.S60 appeals to the Masses.Android s for the geeks and 70% of the potential mobile phone buyers arent geeks.s60 is a basic OS.basic means Good.jaz whine like bunch of hungry monkeys coz s60 will remind forever.its the most loved mobile OS.companies r nt idiots jaz to ditch out the best Mobile OS.y dont u jaz commissioned SE to make this kind of fon running on Android flatform i bet SE wont listen to you coz they will be in the verge of bankcruptcy if they will listen to you..Android is nt doing well in the market and thats d fact.
dodo, 21 Jan 2010the best se ui touchscreen is UIQ3... why don't they use UIQ3 again... i'm stil using se m600i... moreI missed UIQ. Using it with GDesk and with each new theme it is a whole new experience all over again. Without it I am lost and I still don't know what other OS should I like.
Still using P1i because failed to like anything else.
the best se ui touchscreen is UIQ3... why don't they use UIQ3 again... i'm stil using se m600i and still great... just ask anybody who once use UIQ3 phone...
the only good and innovated about this phone is continuous autofocus.
rest is old news and its not enough
This is good phone from inside, but very very ugly design, and there is non of the phones on gsmarena that is so ugly as this phone, and i wonder wot SE have ever think to do with it.
Ethan, 21 Jan 2010Human Curvature =.="! Iphone already has that kind curvature 3 years ago! I don't believe... moreWell, guess what, they (iPhone) still have one design, same old 3 years old design. ;)
Everything someone said something like this there is only one example popup in my head, Donkey and horses. All Donkey's look alike but horses are....
Figure it out. Lol.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2010not so much a symbian fan but design wise finally something new.. at least we wont get people ... moreif you look over Sony Ericsson's portfolio, you will hardly find any phone that is inspired or look-like an iPhone, which is why I love Sony Ericsson, they are always original and even in their rough times they stick to bring us original designs in mobile phones which are just stylish, unique, different, functional and beautiful.
I am not sure about others but there is something about Sony, when you keep a mobile from Sony you automatically feel some sort of VIP among others. Lol. Others give you that look like you are SOMEONE.
Human Curvature =.="! Iphone already has that kind curvature 3 years ago! I don't believe in Sony Ericsson anymore.
Bill, 20 Jan 2010Are you a sheep? It's known for a fact that the Symbian better utilises the camera quality far... morewell my current phone is a i8910, and the camera is super, but still the down side of the OS mades my forget how good the hardware is, if the OS can't archive basic user friendly and run smoothly, having great hardware wont made up for it, it's like u build a pc with 3000 dollar parts and install window 98 in it.
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2010S60 is dead and winmo is dead. android to dominate the cellular market soon yes S60 will dead & replace with Symbian Open Source (S60+UIQ+MOAP) , WinMo dead maybe if microsoft still can't make native jvm. J2ME lover hate winmo but love Symbian.
