Sony Ericsson Satio (Idou) preview: First look

Sony Ericsson Satio (Idou) preview: First look - read the full textSony Ericsson Satio (a.k.a. Idou) is perched at the top of the touchscreen food chain with an ominous grin. Currently rivaled only by the Samsung Omnia HD, the 12 megapixel predator readily bares its teeth...

It would also be wise if they put capacitive touch screen rather than resistive touch screen...

If ONLY this thing offered HD Video Recording!! it would be the best phone and id pay $1000 or more for it

sigh why cant they just give it a firmware upgrade to record hd video? isnt that possible considering the capabilities of the camera???

people mostly say the right thing
the nature parts of this larger than life cellphone are 3.5 mm jack & micro usb.
the included memory is 2gb. we can bear it because microsd cards are simply available people can buy a new card but when i see rivals they have better ones like 8gb cards or more. i suggest SE must icrease the included card or the internal memory.
I,m a die-hard fan of this phone & i hope to see it more greater.

dear SONY,

please include the 3.5mm headphone jack and replace your crappy connector with a microUSB one for data transfer and charging. if you do that then i'm yours!!!

moving away from Memory Stick towards SD = GREAT move!!
using SYMBIAN = FANTASTIC move!!

just fix those 2 little things and BANG! you will have 30% more customers :)

I want to switch phones from Nokia N95-4 to a touch screen... What I'm looking for in a phone is to be on 3g 24-7 like the iPhone. It annoyed by Nokia; you have sign in everytime you want to send or recieve e-mails. The point of instant is gone. Please, let me know.

Satio is not really impressive, when i focus on camera iŽd go for the Samsung Pixon12,when i focus on the OS iŽd go for HTC or again Samsung,
when i focus on AMLOEDdisplays iŽd go for again Samsung,so what has Satio to offer?not much

The blinking light reminds me of my old P800 :)

I hope this is a descent heir for the P series.

Judging by these sample photos the 12mp was a total waste. if they look that bad blown up just on a pc monitor they would look horrendous blown up onto a size 12mp is supposed to work for. Someone needs to make a quality 5-8mp sensor for a real point and shoot cell phone cam. I do like alot of the functionality but the camera is just too disappointing to spend the $$$ I think id save my $$ and just go with innov8 if i had to buy something now.

Very good. I only hope the screen will be scratch-resistant. About the video-specs, well they are only OK. A 3x optical zoom would make this device really the best cellphone in the world, at least for a couple of months. I think however seŽs best achievement to date even better than xperia1.
