indra, 07 Apr 2009i thing it will be out in Q4 2009
time will answer your question soon..that can be 6 mos or more - that is a lifetime in the cell phone business :)
By that time cell phones will have built projectors, or digital TV reception, or what ever
...sorry I just realized all these are already done ?))))
Coming soon. Exp. release 2009, Q3
´Coming soon´ --- Lies, lies lies :)))
Exp. release 2009, Q3
Who cares about it? We care about actual release!
I bet it will not be in Q3!!!!!!!!!!!
the problem with SE vs other corp. is that while other corps make better and more reliable phones SE´s quality goes down.
2: Se also vary slow to release new modes - they make announcement. but the release much much later - all those wonderful specs are pretty outdated by that time.
3: new released phones are buggy and overpriced
- so do not be surpriced that some of us have some caution regarding new models with unrealistic promises.
BTW: 1000 mAh is just a bad joke!
I think this phone is very nice and has an exceptional camera. The features of the phone are also very good: camera,video,games,music this really is unlimited entertainment. I am hoping to get one when it comes out if it isnt to expensive, but over all a great phone. Well done sony ericsson :)
i appreciate Indras knowledge , but its not fair for Sony Ericsson that you are making such loud comments , since you are neither the manufacturer or the Sony Ericsson manager
lets keep the talk to our levels only
Kal, 07 Apr 2009Indra do you have any info about it's internal memory. If indeed it has full HD capability alo... moreiam sorry i dont know yet coz my friend said " there is no idou spec right know till all feature of idou is done (included the OS(this summer), the camera(march), the lens(september) )though there is an information about idou internal memory but SE will change it again in final spec..the camera is not completed yet.wait for 1st whitepaper or 2nd whitepaper of idou.if i have an information of idou i will tell you guys and if i havent, i wont make a statement at here
indra, 07 Apr 2009iam so tired to add the official link again and again..i gave the link many times at here but ... morei know the official site, sony? the OMAP? yes..
but the thing is, it is not in the SE site..
oh well, lets wait until summer. =D
btw, i like idou, it is the 2nd best phone for me, i just dont want se fans to mislead
indra, 07 Apr 2009iam so tired to add the official link again and again..i gave the link many times at here but ... moreIndra do you have any info about it's internal memory. If indeed it has full HD capability along with 12mp cam, it makes sense to have some internal memory. 16gb/32gb maybe!!
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2009actually i like SOME of your info..
you know, official information =Diam so tired to add the official link again and again..i gave the link many times at here but SE hater didnt read carefully because they dont like to know about good thing of idou..they just find idou weakness..you must know i never say to anyone that samsung HD is bad phone...in fact, till now samsung HD has good spec and i will give a respect for phone that has good spec like samsung HD and idou..as a SE fan, iam not angry or jelous if there is better phone than idou...if i say the idou is better than omnia HD, it doesnt mean omnia HD is bad phone, isnt it ? each people has diff opinion or view about a phone so we cant offense them.they have rights to choice a phone what they like.
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2009lol, you are confident as i am, saying that idou will never be able to capture hd videos.. hah... morei will not be dispointed if iam wrong because i just give it 85% of my confident, of course iam not god knows everything 100%.
And iam not a blind se fanboy...if idou doesnt have good spec at all i will accept the truth and i will say samsung HD is better but as a SE fan i will try to help the other SE fan who want to know about idou information and i never push anyone to believe me, that is enough. if you dont like my information you can skip my comments freely.
kal, 07 Apr 2009NO DONT GET ME WRONG. I'm not saying idou wont have full HD. I just belive that even if It cap... moreoh ok..
so im the only one believing that idou will not be able to record a full hd?.. lol
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2009lol, you are confident as i am, saying that idou will never be able to capture hd videos.. hah... moreNO DONT GET ME WRONG. I'm not saying idou wont have full HD. I just belive that even if It captured Full HD, It will not the the FIRTS phone to do so. There will be Omnia full HD or LG full HD by then. Just my thoughts!
kal, 07 Apr 2009Lol. What's wrong in saying that Exmor is great but how do we know idou will have it? Does tha... morelol, you are confident as i am, saying that idou will never be able to capture hd videos.. haha
oh i hope se die hard fans wont get disappointed. =D
Director, 07 Apr 2009My god! So long?!!! I can't believe it! It's too long to hit the shelf! This is unacceptab... morein asia? uhmm 2010? lol..
omndahd will be release in May 25.
so i dont think it is right to compare the two.
maybe, omniahd2.. lol
Director, 07 Apr 2009My god! So long?!!! I can't believe it! It's too long to hit the shelf! This is unacceptab... moreif you say this too long ...then see N97 ...it announced at November 2008 and release date at june 2009
that is long ... as for idou it is the first 12mp with new OS in the world..so i don't see a problem with that
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Lol. What's wrong in saying that Exmor is great but how do we know idou will have it? Does that make me ignorant and arrogant? You are taking it personally coz once I shut you up and you have nothing to back up your claims. If all the rumors are true and it in fact uses exmor and has HD capability then hell its a great device. No issues. Can you answer why on earth SE is so tight-lipped? If it is real and they are going to make it to the market soon, then what's holding them to even say that it will have exmor sensor and it will record full HD video? If indra has some source... any insider in SE, then let him speak for you. Lets not bring Omnia HD. I don't roam around praising it like you fanboys do. I only do that when someone says it's bad or crap or gives wrong information. We all know it's spec sheets and people had a chance to play with it, even if its a prototype. There are plenty of demo videos, image samples and video sample online to check. That's not the case with idou. It's still very much a 'Ghost' phone with sketchy specs.
I don't think I have insulted Indra in any way. Nope. In fact it's your words that I feel insulting. And finally I will apologize to everyone and retire from this forum if SE bring this 12mp full-HD phone in the market before anybody else. Mark my words.
Idou is the project name for the first phone model. The focus for this project and the promis behind it is “Unlimited entertainment”. It is much more than just picture and music functions, for instance games, social networks or "complete video services "says Sony Ericsson’s german product manager Steffen Grosch.
it says here that it will be MUCH MORE then JUST A PICTURE or MUSIC FUNCTIONS..
so we going to expect more from IDOU
