I want to buy the satio to try it out but i am going to wait a bit longer to see what happens,,its still expensive at moment,,come on companys stop chucking out fones and get some quality control back..
This is the quote from my original newsletter on mobile-review.com..it under news section dated 20th feb 2010..
quote,,Sony Ericsson's much beleagured flagship device, Satio, may be in for another recall in the UK according to SE-NSE. Citing sources close to the Carphone Warehouse, the UK's largest mobile phone retailer, they are saying that although the handset is currently on sale another software issue is set to have the handset withdrawn very soon. If that proves correct it would be a devastating blow to the handset, which has already been withdrawn from sale once before late last year. Another withdrawal will almost certainly mean the end of the handset in the UK. Orange's UK arm seems to be getting in on the action too with reports surfacing that they are preparing to offer half priced contracts with Satio to try and shift their remaining stock of the handset. All in all not a good day for Satio or Sony Ericsson.
I knew i would find the source originally for the second satio withdrawal

I have read some places that it was just firmware and other places that its was hardware and firmware. Well, all that I know is that whatever the problem was, it was important enough to warrant a recall. Hopefully most if not all problematic Satio's are fixed or can be. I might get one for summer myself and update to the latest firmware, unless its already installed. I would also like to see an updated review on GSM Arena if possible of the new firmware.

But ask the sales persons just in case.
