Nokia hater, many people reported that after the update most of the problems were fixed. And the performance of the device was excellent like never before.
I advice you to update it, however, don't forget to backup your system first and then update the device. All the best with your new satio my friend.
Day after day I see customers that are really happy with this device which makes me believe that it is simply the best :D
Satio is awesome, I've had it for two weeks, and I'm really satisfied. Just there are a few bugs(I haven't updated yet) and sound recording that bothers. By the way, will the sound recording be fixed by update?
And for that guy who said this is 5800 with camera, I have to say that's not true at all. I had 5800 before this, and that was bullsh*t. Every thing on this way better. Sound quality for example, that had stereo speakers that would drive you mad with their aweful quality, and this has s mono which is great on quality and good on loudness. I asure you this phnoe is great, just buy it.
Satio is the best phone in the world. Satio is so sexy, more than any women in the tv. Trust me buy the satio and you will fall in love with it.
Customers are very happy and satisfied by their new satio's. Satio is the best seller and the best phone. Don't worry people about negative comments because they are not true.
People just wants the satio to look bad because it looks better than their girl friend.
Satio ! Satio ! Satio ! Satio ! Satio ! Satio !
I am disgrutled, with finger print total plastic Satio or U1. Its priced 700$ of course with RICA O37 dated 29th Nov 09. latest update, in Black.
Its screen resolution on themes symbian is hopeless. Touch is average, interface as Nokia 5800, mamory card 8GB is read as 6.2 GB China made. Pouch is shabby when enclosed with cell too thick as Brick.
Internal mem is 36 mb with basic software.
Forget it Folks heavens not going to fall.
I got this phone free on a talk 500 (second most expensive contract with Vodacom) and i tell you what, I should have taken a Nokia 5800 + Gift vouchers and purchased a digital camera (12 Mega pixels) and I would have had change for a few beers. This phone is exactly like the 5800 without the 12MP camera.

SONY ERICSSONS PRESS ROOM WEBSITE:
Units shipped in the quarter were 14.1 million, an increase of 2% quarter-on-quarter and a decrease of 45% year-on-year. Sales for the quarter were Euro 1,619 million, a sequential decrease of 4% and a year-on-year decrease of 42%. The sequential decline in ASP (Average Selling Price) was due to product mix and continued challenging market conditions.
Gross margin improved sequentially but dropped year-on-year due to lower sales and foreign exchange fluctuations. The sequential improvement was seen in both percentage rate and volume, driven by cost savings actions and successful sales of the W995 Walkman® phone.
Income before taxes for the quarter, excluding restructuring charges, was a loss of Euro 198 million compared to a loss of Euro 283 million from the previous quarter. The reduced loss was due to better gross margin, as well as reduced operating expenses.
“Our business in the third quarter started to show the effects of our ongoing transformation programme. Having refreshed our brand we are now better positioned to support the launch of new products such as Aino™ and Satio™ in Q4 2009. We have cleared channel inventories, and have continued to realign internal resources and improve efficiency. We have also arranged external financing to strengthen the company’s financial position,” said Dick Komiyama, outgoing President, Sony Ericsson. “Transforming the business for future growth and returning Sony Ericsson to profitability is the focus of the senior management team and will continue under the new leadership.”
As of September 30, 2009, Sony Ericsson had a net cash position of Euro 841 million.
Since the beginning of the quarter, facilities of Euro 455 million were signed to strengthen the balance sheet and improve liquidity. Euro 155 million were drawn by the end of September and Euro 100 million were drawn in the beginning of October. In addition, a two-year committed back-up facility of Euro 200 million is available but has not been utilized. The parent companies have guaranteed Euro 350 million of these facilities on a 50/50 basis.
Programmes started since mid 2008 to reduce annual operating expenses by Euro 880 million are continuing, with the full benefit expected during the second half of 2010. The total restructuring charges for these programmes are estimated to be well within the previously announced Euro 500 million.
As of October 15, 2009; Sir Howard Stringer, Chairman, CEO and President of Sony Corporation and a member of the Sony Ericsson board, became Chairman of the Sony Ericsson board succeeding Carl-Henric Svanberg. At the same time, Bert Nordberg became President of Sony Ericsson succeeding Dick Komiyama, who remains as Executive Advisor until the end of 2009.
Sony Ericsson forecasts that the global handset market for 2009 will contract by approximately 10% from around 1,190 million units in 2008. Sony Ericsson estimates that its market share in units was about 5% in the third quarter.
