i met my friend who work in SE internal yesterday. i asked him about idou camera, battery and video spec. he said "the idou camera and video are not ready yet coz 12MP EXMOR CMOS sensor(IMX060PQ)it self will be shipped in march and the lens module(IU060F)is in september so idou wont be out in the market till september.that is why SE didnt allow you to use idou camera at MWC"
i have already seen the idou pictures in fony.sk and actually the camera is not real idou camera quality coz he said "it used 10MP camera and didnt use 12MP EXMOR CMOS sensor so it was very diff with final version, that is why we didnt add EXMOR or cybershoot logo on the back cover of idou at MWC"
SE hasnt decided idou battery capacity yet till the camera and video consumption are known at first.
1) Brick like design
2) 1000 ma battery
4) no 3.5mm jack
5) release in 2010
6) No OLED screen
7) ordinary camera performance (to many MP for a small sensor)
8) dodgy brand
Somone my tell us what CPU is in this phone and how much internal memory is?

I knew SE will scre.w tis unit up as other recent models.
How can we expect different from the same people.
Now ir is official:
1000mAH battery!!!! LiPo!
1: SE has been having problem with LiPo batteries!
2: 1000mAH just ridiculously low capacity.
I wonder what else comes out beore release (Jan 2010)
I bet his phone will bo outdated by the time of release.
It should be on the market NOW!
cristy_m_a, 23 Mar 2009- 3.5 mm audio jack and usb port would make Idou much more popular...SE still working on the 3.5mm jack
Engineers gotsomesort of problems putting it on the phones.
One guy did it behind of the back of others (another model) but that guy disappeared and he can not be found.
But do not feel bad, SE will put 3.5mm jack on their models as soon as that will be outdated.

It is like CD quality sound :))))
SE and Sony love to use terminology what never truly explained.
The fact is that 12mp camera with this lens (size and quality totally useless.
A decent 5MP SLR will out do it anytime.
The night shoots will be even worst.
This phone is nice but these people have to get something like this with dual sim cards like the samsung.
- 3.5 mm audio jack and usb port would make Idou much more popular...
Is it just me who notice it..or Idou really doesn't have a 3.5mm jack? omg..phones these days without a 3.5mm jack is just...even xperia have them?! and it's a business phone! not a multimedia phone such as Idou! yetttt! omg...unbelievable error..
Idou would be nice if it was 3G capable in the US. If it was I would get this phone over the Omnia HD but since the Omnia HD is 3G capable in the US i'll be getting that.
