Anonymous, 05 Oct 2009SE phones are outsourced!!!!!
They are made by other companies and they put SE logo on them... moreSE MAKES SATIO.
stop the shit comments saying htc or sagem makes the phones.
they are not!
it only happened once and wont happened again.. with x1...
coolkai, 06 Oct 2009Satio got the Scratch resistant screen or not??it's got a plastic screen. is that ever scratch resistant?!
Satio is very expensive and we cant expect that price drops so that many se fans can buy it beacause all se phones are ovepriced .Look at the w902 ,c902 etc.They are still overpriced comparing to equal phones from other companies.
It is 800-1100 USD now!
I bet it will be 500 USD in 60 days.
In 20 days it will be offered FREE (in most developed countries) with a cheap contract - 40 USD /month
(most people pay 50-100 USD anyway)
So most people can try it!
My major concern is the battery!
(and the quality control)
It will kill the model!
Thr other major concern is the lousy customer service!!!!!!
SE has the worst customer service in the industry!
You keep saying what SE will do in the future -
others will release some excellent phones too.
What is important what you can buy today!!!!!
You can not make any calls with announcements.
And look back - people hyped about x1 for 1-2 years and finally what we got? a lousy phone!
Now, you hyped about the Idou for months and what we got? a n outdated TFT 1000mAh phone that probably will have some reliability issue just like all the recent SE phones.
What others do: release phones so fast the it is hard to follow. They are reliable and have great features for much much less money.
SE had difficulty for years to include a 3.5mm jack - how pathetic is that? :))))
the lousy connection on the side also ridiculous.
SE: where is the miniUSB charger?????
SE phones are outsourced!!!!!
They are made by other companies and they put SE logo on them!
Companies like Sagem, HTC and several Chinese companies.
SE keeps this from the public and the specs are still not fully released!!!!!!
Looked on sony web site today and they are releasing the satio in the england on the 8th of october woop woop
Released here today in Iran , but only in black and for 1150 USD, I'm sure price will drop fast.
I think it will be a huge seller, too, but good grief....when is it gonna be released? That's really the big thing with SE....it takes them so long to release their products.
The Satios battery needs initial care and only then would it perform to its fullest potential. You need to drain it completely and charge it overnight for the first few days. Yes, it sounds like something that modern batteries need not go through, but it needs to be done nonetheless. Hopefully after using this method, it can easily go 1.5-2 days with push notifications, WiFi et al. For 3 days? you need more capacity :p
let me shut the mouths of people who still hesitate to buy se because of overpricing...se- jack of few but master of all...!!! i know dis is damn funny but its the best to shut mouths..isnt it?
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2009I wish the price is very high. More higher, more people can't buy it. So I can show-off with t... moreya..but we want se 2 live 4 ever and overpriced satio can close doors of se 4ever...what se fans shld thnk now is the balanced financial status of se...i must say se has improved their pricing and marketing strategy..se overpriced (not actualy) their all fones and lost many customers se believes in quality and not quantity se lost its quality (se fan but datz the fact)frm past 2yrs becoz of which it lost se fans also(not me)but now dat classic se is back again w995 is superb widout any problems(der r some unlucky ones but it hapens wid evry fone not all fones r perfect if dat would hapen der wld b only one fone comp)so 4 non se users give satio a try and u wil b happy 4 sure throw ur iphones..
