If you look closely, the picture seems to be photoshopped..You can tell on the top of the phone..
This must be a fake..
The phone looks great but the camera is even better. I wonder when this phone will be out. It always take so long for SE to start launching the phone. Anyone have any idea when?
I don't know how GSMarena got the idea that SE is using internet lexicon to name this phone or Greek for that matter. If this is indeed being designed by Sony Ericsson Japan, I'm more inclined to believe that the word "Idou" is Japanese. As a matter of fact, 移動(Idou) means "mobile" in Japanese.
If Sony does buy Ericsson's stock in SE aka "SE splitting", we would definately see a PSP phone, so I don't think it's a bad thing at all. I don't see what Ericsson has contributed to SE besides Symbian, so as far as I'm concerned Sony can do without Ericsson.
This phone has too many flaws in the design... The lens cover is too big and ugly and it slides vertically instead of horizontally. If you slide the phone into your pocket you will open the camera lens by accident. The shape is ugly and not symmetrical either. The top looks heavier and thicker than the bottom as well.
John, 26 Mar 2009This phone is going to be a failure just like the XperiaWhy is it that SE seems to b lacking behind asfar as HI-TEC is cncernd. e.g. LAck of oled, video QVGA. sum1 needs 2pull up thr socks
What I have read so far is that Sony is trying to make a phone that is both "Walkman" and "Cybershot". If that is so then I agree with it's current name Idou, since as it is pronounced, it's as if they are saying "I do". Thus the union of both categories into one.
It's not even a picture of the (silver) phone. Has a few changes to the actual design of the Idou so I would guess that it is a fake.
John, 26 Mar 2009This phone is going to be a failure just like the Xperialike you!! i think you say that because you can't buy idou because you a poor man.
Inside_Hand, 26 Mar 2009This phone will not be released until 2012! Believe me, please.You really think so??? Then I guess its gonna happen the same thing that happened to the N96 when it came out... it was already outdated! I really hope you are wrong about this! (What are your sources anyway?)
BTW... I happen to like the name idou... its becoming popular that way...
John, 26 Mar 2009This phone is going to be a failure just like the Xperiawhat are u talking about? xperia is not a failure at all , it is a great phone with many features , obviously u are a nokia fan boy su back off
Even BETTER...! :-D
Hopefully, SE will come out with different colors like what Sony did to the Japanese PSP...
At least like Japanese SE DoCoMo handsets (Japanese market phones are ALWAYS better looking than the rest of the world... Not fair...)
Inside_Hand, 26 Mar 2009This phone will not be released until 2012! Believe me, please.I belive u.
Its always so when it comes to swedish products.
They are always deleyed.
This phone looks great now but in 2012 it will be out of date design and technology.
Soz for bad English ;)
John, 26 Mar 2009This phone is going to be a failure just like the XperiaThe Xperia is the number one ranked handset by vote on this website with nearly 88,000 votes. This handset promises to be a multimedia monster, something worthy of challenging Samsungs current multimedia powerhouses! The only failure round here John is your opinion lol
John, 26 Mar 2009This phone is going to be a failure just like the XperiaSays who? You? Err....yeah right, whatever. Define how this is going to be a failiure or your argument itself is a failiure and invalid.
I like black because the screen is bigger, from silver I like the buttons from the side they are put more inside
I think that the silver is not real because it has differences (the keys, the dimensions, the light sensor etc)
Sorry for my bad english! \=
Inside_Hand, 26 Mar 2009This phone will not be released until 2012! Believe me, please.sounds like ua frm the inside?au sure
