I would strongly recommend that SE do not set the price of this device too highly. Priced correctly and with stable firmware it could sell well and assist the company's fortunes.
rich, 20 Jan 2010i hate s60 ui its rubbish y didnt they use andriod like x10?LoL so you use Smartphone only for ui??
why still use Symbian S60v5 a.k.a Symbian^1??? where Symbian Open Source a.k.a Symbian^2/3/4????
The first time I saw the leaked photos I thought 2 myself what an ugly phone,but now better pics hav been leaked and I am truly amazed with its beauty,design is original.My only grievance is the OS,seriously!, Im a little fed up of it.Ive used both SE n Nokia phones with this OS n both products always reboot n freeze at some point in time(major problem with symbian)other than that its ok.2010 wud love 2 try an android OS cud b X10,HTC BRAVO or NEXUS.If I get greedy I cud still see myself ownin this haha.
not so much a symbian fan but design wise finally something new.. at least we wont get people calling it an iphone copy..good work on se on their first hd video recorder
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2010When will they learn??? S60 is pure fail, if this is a android 2.1, I would buy it in a hear... moreAre you a sheep? It's known for a fact that the Symbian better utilises the camera quality far better than any other OS, Android being the weakest of them all with the piss poor showing from the Hero.
now SE know that should attract all groups of people
some people especially in asia love symbian and asia is the largest market so SE is making some for them
some people especially in europe love winmo so SE is making some for them
some people especially in america love android so SE is making some for them
good strategy from SE in my opinion
and the most important thing:
x1:released 8 month after announcement
satio:released 8 month after announcement
look at x2:released 3 month after announcement
look at x10:will be released 3 month after announcement
look at vivaz:will be released 2 month after announcement
SE is going back to good old days
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2010When will they learn??? S60 is pure fail, if this is a android 2.1, I would buy it in a hear... moreveeery wrong opinion man!!!
i just love symbian, but i also love Sony Ericsson!
So, i have Nokia bcause of symbian, but i dont like Nokia design at all (i always prefered SE design, i even created themes for symbian inspired by SE default themes)!
This means next: BINGO! Sony ericsson with symbian series60 5th edition UI is BINGO!
And im glad that SE did it (i didnt like UIQ interface at all)!
i also believe that there is a lot of opinions like mine!
If only the price of this beauty (or price of SE satio) would be normal, that would definitely be my next phone, and i would be happy to leave nokia...
But, the price is not normal :(
Just my 2 cents......
SE fail, why? even nokia run away from Symbian OS to Maemo 5 OS. Stay
anyone imagine that telephone like SATIO has the i phone applications ?? why dont we see a camera and design from sony and software and applications from i-phone !!! if that happened ... i think all the other phones company will broke out
Andrew, 20 Jan 2010When you will understand, that S60 is better than Android? Shiny menus doesn't mean Android c... morewho said android is winning the game with shiny menu? it about user friendly, smooth UI, mass apps from market place. s60 sure is good, but it's far behind androids.
S60 is dead and winmo is dead.
android to dominate the cellular market soon
Unknown price... Knowing SE it'll probably cost two arms, two legs and probably one eye... Lol!!!
ok guys well I must agree with you if it was an andriod phone it would have been amazing. Yet, I think it's a remarkable phone and is very unique.
And come on all of you wining about the os, the os is great. Look at nokia's they are the best sellers and have the biggest share in the market and guess what?? They still use symbian.
The thing is if symbian was that bad it would have not been that popular. So although Andriod is better, symbian still is a good choice.
The first decent phone from SE in years. It does not lack anything. This is the first SE phone that can now compete against Nokia, Samsung and LG.
Just wondering WHEN this phone will be released considering the LATENESS of the X10 release time!
Also, let's hope SE puts in decent software that's NOT garbage. The company has a BAD reputation of releasing phones with Cr*ppy software that's full of bugs and takes its darn time in releasing updates to correct them!
Adding insult to injury, SE charges a PREMIUM on their phones =:(
