If I want a good camera, I will buy something called a "camera".
If I want noisy, low quality pictures, I will use a cameraphone like the Satio, which will no doubt be atrocious at anything higher than ISO 150 - like all cameraphones.
The megapixels mean nothing - it is optics and the sensor that are important. So who cares if it has a qudrazillion MP camera, if the optics are cr*p, it won't matter and more megapixels can in fact make image quality worse. It also means good optics/less MP will be better than worse optics/more MP.
So what are the optics/sensor like on the Satio? Better than the E52 (which it isn't even competing against)? Because the manufacturers never release this info as they know full well cameraphones are for casual and not serious use.
Plus, as mentioned by someone else, they are aimed at two different markets. If you are after a phone for business, you would consider the e-series.
Subsequently, said businessman should also have a brain large enough to work out that cameras on mobile phones are still a joke, a marketing ploy that only works with teenagers and others who only care about casual photography and not image quality.
Spec erections are just embarrassing. Who cares? I want a phone as a communication device, not some converged piece of sub-standard cr*p that doesn't know what it is. It will be another 10 years before cameras on phones are of a good enough quality to subsitute even an ENTRY level standalone camera.
it will also lose jobs and profits, so digital convergence will probably never happen anyway - you will always have stand-alone devices (cameras) that are superior, even at entry level.
So until we do see true convergence, please refrain from comparing digital d*ck sizes, especially as you are clearly clueless when it comes to even basic technology like cameras. Cameraphones are fine for casual photography, but not for decent holiday snaps or anything else. Subsequently, how can you compare a bad camera against a slightly less bad camera? It doesn't make sense, unless casual photography is the new vogue... Or am I missing something here?

I've seen the wallpaper in one of the nokia's employee in one of the nokia store.
The wallpaper i'm talking about is the Trio E-series. E52/E55/E72 along with the tag line. Which E-series are you.
That nokia E-series said, that this wallpaper might become the brosure of the trio E-series.

Perhaps if you want a qwerty keyboard you may consider the E55 which is a "semi" or opt for the imminent E72?
At the end of the day, a question arises
- why there is no qwerty keyboard?
antesepation is killing you all, isn't it.You all just have to wait, and there is nothing you can do about it. It is sad
If they launch E52, sales of all other nokia phones released recently will slump. That's the reason for not releasing E52.
I contacted one of nokia store today, and they told me that nokia has pushed all new E-series launch date to late august - early september. The trio E52, E55 & E72 will be launch together. At the same time with the tag line "Which E-series are you".
What I said about this phone not coming out in the UK anytime soon - well Expansys have just put the release date BACK to 2nd September.
It will most likely be the middle/end of September when this phone is released in the UK.
It should hopefully be on CPW coming soon by mid August, then it will be imminent within four weeks.
I'm patiently waiting - my 6500 Classic is falling to bits and the battery is completely duffed...
