To the guy who has the K850I, thank god someone else loves the phone for what it is. I have one as well =D I can't wait for the Idou... Will be very amazing
Yazad Dhunjisha, 14 Apr 2009Dear dr_yasir a. al.Douri, No one know's for sure what the memory will be but many assume i... moreYes, I think you are right, no one can know the internal memory of Idou, but I think will have 16, or 32 Gb, Sony Ericsson Japan is advanced, can make good phones, and Sony has 32 Gb Walkman, this thing make sense, that Sony Ericsson Japan can make a phone with 32GB internal memory. Do you know something about the CPU?
uzak, 14 Apr 2009sure not less than 1000$X1 was 1100 USD first, but after a few weeks they were given away free with a cheap contract. I have tried a couple of times but I could not live with the unreliable performance.
Idou is less anticipated. More competition and less attractive for novice customers.
Looks cheap, and bulky. X1 is more elegant.
So, I assume it will be a hard sale for even 600-700 USD.
1000mah battery is far from barely enough for this monstrous phone..
I think 1350 is minimum and 1600 is ideal battery capacity.. for 12mp camera and very large screen like that
Mohd, 14 Apr 2009TO DIRECTOR..
how d heck u believe indra easily.. he himself have not proven that his frien... moreI agree - this insider who works on Idou is very suspicious.
Indra was unable to give any basic info on the model except sensor specs which is published on the net and meaningless since there are so many other factors determine image quality.
I have no problem with Indra or anybody here :)))
I have written my points already and someone afterwards asking ? - just read it!
He pretends to be knowledgeable:
- no engineering education
He also pretends that there is inside information from a ´friend´.
(while for me he sounds like an outsourced rep with PR garbage info)
As far as smartness? :))))
A whole paragraph from Indra:
˝ my information is a clue so it is not 100% true but my information from official site and my friend who work in SE, you can see that i always list where i got the information.my information is not my imagination.read my information summary carefully. ˝
and he tries to explain things to us? :)))))
He keeps pushing the sensor specs - meaningless.
No info (with reputable official info):
1: who will produce the model
2: where will be produced
3: what the h.ll they were thinking when decided on 1000mAh battery
4: HD recording
But, of course he is totally convinced that Idou will be a perfect phone - without any foundation.
Naturally, any nonsense does not bother me! :)
So anybody with inside info please let us know about these 4 questions.
Have a great day!
Kal, 14 Apr 2009There isn't much info available, but it seems the slimmest part is 15 mm. It's more than 15mm ... moreYes I agree. I also assume the slimmest part is 15mm
As far as thickness - it is matter of taste.
I do not hate a phone because it is thick - just like I do not hate Japanese cars because they are (generally) not low enough (compare to Porsche, Ferrari).
I think for the 2010 market the technology is available to make slimmer and better phone than Idou!
Idou was officially introduced - with this thickness! Some i...t wrote that it will get slimmer :))))
The battery was also presented - Idou was presented with 1000mAh battery.
If SE changes the battery that is fine with me. It would be silly / stu...d not to do so.
The big question why SE so quite about the battery?????????????????????????????
Many website question the 1000mAh battery!!!
(not only me!!! :))
and SE do not respond! Do not say it was a mistake. Do not say they never wanted to release the model with such a stu..d battery.
The only explanation I can think of that they were so s...d that they really wanted to release the model with that battery.
But I take other explanation :))))
rapter, 14 Apr 2009finaly SE is making phones with Symbian S60 OS. may be they're planning to support their phone... moreNgage? Do you knw wot you are talking about? SONY owns the world of games and ngage is nt to compare wit panasonic or sega .
dr_yasir a. al.Douri, 10 Mar 2009hi,its an amazing camera or mobile,i dont know wat to name it.
my question is : the memory up... moreDear dr_yasir a. al.Douri,
No one know's for sure what the memory will be but many assume it will be shipping in either 8GB or 16GB models. SE might also ship it in 32 GB. Go to youtube and watcha video by phonedog.com
lots of info there.
The IDOU kicks ass. Nick is mental. I have the K850i and it is beyond amazing, if u know how to use it. SE beats the crap out of nokia and samsung.
There isn't much info available, but it seems the slimmest part is 15 mm. It's more than 15mm with the camera slide. I might be wrong, so no offense. Cheers!
Thank god for sony making this phone now I can rub it in all you apple fanboys. Oh and yeah I did hear about the new iphone 3.2 mega pixel. Wow its amazing how many people buy something just for the apple name. Makes me wonder if I put apple on a peice of s##t will people buy it?
how d heck u believe indra easily.. he himself have not proven that his friend is se insider..
that was right that someone said, i forgot the name, u can read it, "how can this se insider give info to someone about idou, coz it shd be secret or whatever. even if it is ur friend, he can get fired from se."
and also, this se insider met indra so often, and indra said, he is working on idou.. ???? even he met indra on monday, it shd be a working day. right?? he must be busy on the idou project rather than met someone.
i just coudnt understand this... really..
about the link, thats very nice honestly.. but, i think it is only assumption also... from other website.. ---- i appreciate that though -----
no offense, seriously....
finaly SE is making phones with Symbian S60 OS. may be they're planning to support their phones for N-Gage Games....
i cant waiut to get one of these in my hand to see what it HAS got them we can all comment on how good or bad it is !!!!
This shall be my final comment on this forum until the final product comes out.
First of all, to anonymous :)))
What's your problem?!!! Are you sick or are you mentally insane?!! You always say that idou is like a brick and the battery is terrible. Then allow me to ask you, do you see any real life idou? NO! Do you think the one shown at MWC is the final product? NO! You filth! You always say that indra provide false information, then why don't you look at yourself. You also provide a lot of false information like the thickness of the idou and the battery capacity. Like I said before, there's no actual idou at the market yet and you are already coming up with all these statements. How childish! Take a hike!
To the other anonymous,
You say indra misinform people and he have no shame right? I believe you should say that to yourself, you shameless lowlife! Ever heard of the term "hope"? I bet you don't since you aren't educated at all. Go back to primary one and study from square one. Maybe you will be able to pronounce the word "hope" with your useless fat mouth! Get LOS*!
To all those SE and idou haters,
Get a life! If you hate it so much, then why even bother to come here and spill all these nonsense?! We are very well aware of the pros and cons of the idou, thank you, thus we don't need lowlives like you to come here remind us of the cons of the idou! Curs* you all!
Nick, I've known you for a long time and I know you are not the type of person who badmouth other people admired products for your own individual gain. If omnia HD is so good(which I have to concur as idou and HD are both high end excellent products), then why don't you go there and spread the pros of HD so that you can give more hope to the people there^^
Lastly to Indra,
My highest salutations. Despite always being badmouthed, yet you still come back to us and spread the future features of the idou(although many claims it isn't true but I sincerely believe that those will be the features of idou!). You gave us all hope and thus we are now really looking forward to get it. So what if those people badmouth you and your friends? Always believe in the term karma. They will get what they deserve! I thank you for keeping our hopes alive and again I give you my most sincere gratitude.^^
That's all for now, thank you. If you(se haters and idou opposers) find it hard to accept it, then so be it. I tried to be reasonable with you people last time but it seems reason won;t get through you. So fine, after reading this comment, I hope that all of you will disappear from this forum, especially you, Anonymous :)))
Idou Silver edition for SE fans.
The one we saw before on GSMarena was photoshoped.
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2009There is nothing to hate - Idou does not exist. :)
If/when it comes out I will not get it n... moreok, you lot are just being silly.
why bother attacking indra if hes just giving his opinion about the phone. ive been reading this thread for a week now, and while i dont agree with everything he says, i still cut him slack for the effort. im only posting now because this flaming has gone out of hand and its becoming a bother filtering out important post from the usual junk.
youve been going on and on about it being 15mm comparing to some other 12mm phones. that actually got me worried for a bit so i went to check the specs of my w960 - 16mm! so whats the problem? i find my 960 alot more comfortable to hold than so many slimmer phones so 15mm should be just right. if your opinion differs, you dont have to hate on the phone because of that. go get the 12mms then, id stick to my 15ish.
the camera has not been tested so whats the commotion all about? the battery was used only for the demo. whether or not they will use it in the final product is uncertain, but as far as SE is concerned, theres no official statement that itd use 1000mAH, another undetermined spec.
12mpx, fine, its debateable the effects of this approach on a mobile camera, but SE say they have a plan to make this work, lets wait until then before bashing it.
hd video. tsk. just like the 12mpx war, the hd war should follow, but just because its not SE claiming it first we wouldnt hear an end. when samsung say hd, what comes to mind? the resolution isnt it? same with 12mpx. taken the videos from the samsung are pretty neat, for a mobile phone, but can you really compare those videos with a hd video from a store? this proves that apart from the resolution of a capture, the quality matters a great deal, so the reason why you arent eating your socks wrt the unusually high resolution of samsungs videos compared to other vga times is beyond my comprehension. and yes, a wvga video can look better than a 1280x768 video when resized, depending on the codec, sampling rate, frame rate, pixel size, bit rate, quotiety etc.
capacit. vs. resist. while there are so many reasons to use a capacit. screen, the fact that theres no hardware keyboard is going to make me use handwriting alot more than before. onscreen keyboards are hell and you know it, you only need to use an iphone for a week to tell you that. capacit. screen can handle keystrokes fine, but def. not as well as resist. and its speed were looking for isnt it? plus resist. screens have point accuracy and can handle applications better. clear winner? no. capacit. screens are generally clearer, being glass and are more resistant to damage. multitouch ... resist. screens can handle as well, only more difficult to implement. im sure wed get a few resist. multitouch apps soon enough.
is there anything else im missing?
and btw, a wider screen almost would mean a thinner device because theres much more volume underneath the screen ...
