SE closes factories and even before it was unable to manage the production of smartphones - it needs special facilities.
HTC helped before but it was a failure - see SE announcement: SE stated never let HTC to make any SE phones again.
Now the question is who will be the next partner?
No news yet!!!!!!
So it is impossible that Idou will be available in October!!!!!!
In the last few weeks there are several forums and articles question the rational of 1000mAh battery usage and SE just kept quite - no correction announcement, obviously they really planned to release the phone with a 1000mAh battery.
No miracles will happen. Only announcement and with that SE will not make a dime.
˝Sony Ericsson is posting a huge 1st quarter 2009 loss of 36%.
Sony Ericsson is announcing its third straight quarterly loss. This time, in the amount of €358 million pre-tax (approximately $461 million USD). ˝
Half a billion USD!!!!
´Right after Apple declared their exuberant financial health, Samsung published the summary of their financial Q1 2009. The report indicates that the company has made profit again...´
˝ Sagem will license certain hardware and software technologies related to mobile phone platforms to Sony Ericsson while an Original Developer Manufacturer agreement will see Sagem Communication provide Sony Ericsson with a number of Sony Ericsson branded mobile phones. ˝
SE needs help from SAGEM !!!! :))))
You can not handle the truth? :))))
˝The company plans cutting down approximately €400 million (approximately $516 million USD) in expenses, which will also result in cutting 2,000 people from their jobs.˝
The sensor size of camera phones are so small that the quality of a digital camera so much better since the sensor size much larger and the electronics much more advanced.
The DLRs are has so much bigger sensors that it is pointless to compare.
The compact digital cameras already have much larges sensors and lenses and that itself enough to outperform the phones. The much more advances electronics just increases the difference.
A relatively good compact camera is about 400-500 USD.
(DSLR 1500 and up)
You pay for performance and quality when you get a digital camera - a phone will not produce similar quality.
That is the reason that today a 12mp phone camera is pointless. Much better to have a 5-8mp phone with great lens and less dense sensor - better quality.
12mp sensor more dense producing more noise and artifact with out the benefit of useful resolution.
For normal size print (8.5x11 or A4 - people rarely print this size or larger) 5-8mp is more than enough resolution.
12mp is just a PR/ / SALES gimmick without merit - actually it has disadvantage since with the same technology an 8mp sensor would produce a much better image!!!!!!!
Anonymous, 06 May 2009are you serious? you are saying SE is better than Nokia because your K800 takes better photos ... moreI'm saying that even my old k800 has a beter camera then any 5MP nokia and the batery i won't even mention!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So nokia fans get a real phone!!
I am an avid user of SE. This phone must be the best phone from SE. How about the price?
SE_INSIDE, 06 May 2009-CYBER-SHOT will be the FIRST phone with EXMOR CMOS 12.1 MP sensor from SONYERICSSON. It won't... moreWhat the! Only 480p? That's pathetic. I thought it was able to capture videos at 720p or HD. And no exmor sensor? Are you sure? Why do you sound like indra. Are you really working in SE? Any proof?
Oh my GOD! The idou is so flawless! Just check it out at this website.
The idou is really really cool. And to think this one is still no where near completion. I can't wait for the completed idou!
