Nice phone but... keep that VERY OLD port instead of a 3.5 audio jack...
I just don't know why SE still do that...
Wow some of you GUYS can be the biggest babies. QUIT COMPLAINING! If you don't want to buy something, don't buy it, NOBODY is forcing you. You guys say these companies are experimenting with your money? OF COURSE! That's their job! Companies, especially public companies! are out there to MAKE MONEY. If you guys can't get that idea through your thick skulls, may the spirits above have the most merciless pity on our souls! I swear you guys need to just man up and stop the complaining. The phone is slowly releasing through eBay, the wait is tough but the phone is coming out, people are giving their honest input so its time to STOP ASSUMING AND GUESSING and time to start listening to the real reviews, or just buy your own, THEN you can say something.
And yes we all know that Iphone is the best and no mobile can currently compete but they can sure try, every other fact right now is subjective. Each phones have their strength and weaknesses, just accept it.
Jesus, you are all just a bunch of kids...QUIT COMPLAINING!
Does anyone know if the Satio had handwriting recognition and if the GPS works independent of the service provider.
seriously.. i'm quite disappointed with se... used to be SE fans but not really now.. Idou takes too long to release. the other new model is not that interesting as the model is not much different from older 1.. SE tends to overprice the price.. I think SE need to put more effort or they will lose more of their fan..
in reply to zalea yes a lot of landline phones now do have the function to send text messages

Arak, 15 Oct 2009you are right that we have the choice not to purchase , but in many instances we are mislead b... moreGood point. But know that technology will not stop. There will be phones with better tech, better features in coming days. Along with top end phones, mid range and even low end phones gone through a lot changes and with time more advance tech is becoming standard. What we really need to have is option to choose. Unfortunately with SE I don't see much option. Some people hate me for being too critical to SE, but the fact is I'm all for good things. Suppose I love how Satio looks and it's features but I don't want to pay high price for it's 12mp cam. Do I have a option? I don't. SE releases too few phones to cater to every segment and offer alternatives. We need to have more touch screen phones with 8mp or 5mp that looks cool, with symbian and andriod or just feature phone from SE. With Nokia or Samsung or these days with LG that's not the case. Some people criticize Samsung for flooding the market with similar looking phones, But they forgot to look into the picture that they are in fact good for end users. That's one reason why they are on top and making profit.
Arak, 15 Oct 2009you are right that we have the choice not to purchase , but in many instances we are mislead b... moreI've been using camera in my k800i (which for today's standard is medicore) in low light conditions often outside and as I can't say that those pictures are of great quality and some of them are blury, all in all I must say that i'm pleased with it's performance. As I carry my mobile all the time, I have my "camera" always with me, so when I need to take a shoot i can do it, I don't have to remember to take a point-and-shoot camera (if I had one) with me every time i go out.
Besides, mobile with camera can make notepad obsolete. If I need to, for example, copy some info at the collage from announcement from some display cabinet i simply tak my mobile and take a picture of that.
About firmware updates, do You think the same way about updates for your PC/Mac software?
funny how I can change in 1 week from Sony's biggest supporters to one of there biggest haters. (never thought it would be possible) unfortunately for sony I'm pretty active on forums everywhere so I'll definitely advice people not to buy Sony.
Freakin Vodafone Netherlands moved releasedate to first week of november...... Gonna cancel my order. Screw SE, screw Sony and screw Vodafone.... To much trouble with Sony lately and I was like one of their biggest fans.... And now they keep playing with us. Just give us a freakin releasedate. They said after 2nd week of october now that we are there its 1st week november, whats next? I'm bloody waiting so long for the Satio and when its released it will be owned by other phones....
Zales, 15 Oct 2009Well, mobile phones stopped being "just" mobile phones when manufacturers added SMS function. ... moreyou are right that we have the choice not to purchase , but in many instances we are mislead by the fake hype that manufactureres call there mobiles as the camera phones.. myself i have bought many camera phones and i cant say that even one worth the trouble to be named as a decent camera... ok only now after 3 years of experiments on our money they fianly succeded to produce saatio or pixon 12 which i can say resembles the normal digital camera , but never replace its quality ...
tell me people , how many times that you went out in the nights with friends and have a good shots with friendsa , either thay are blurred or dark , , i have almost 50GB of pictures bu mobile phones and now i regeret that i did not use a normal pockret digital camera ... always there is something wrong ..
i already have 25 se mobile phones in my collection , and its good to say that we have all in one gps , organizers , phone , alarm , camera , music player ,,, but to have them is one thing , but to make them function as required is another thing ... so tell me , how many times that you have used your mobile phones for camera or gps or wi fi and you were satisfied ??? always we see complains from the users from all the brands ...
exmple : do to all mobile forums and you can see list of complains ,,, these complains will stop when mobile manufacturers stop using croeds money to experiment there products ,,, ok another example : all the time at least a good high end mobile will have 2 to 3 updates and sometimes it wont help to improve ,,, this shows that the manufactureres are still did not test there equipmant to the full and dumped it on the crowed to be used as test sites ..
do you agree??
so we have no choice now just to accept the experimental mobiles in the market to fullfill our greed for more and more technology and this greed will never stop as long as new technonlogies emerge daily to satisfy the simple and the hungry mob
