nick, 11 Oct 2009im glad luke is here he's saved me the hard work buy the omnia HD.My goodness nick! You "work hard" just to bash SE?! To whom payroll do you belong to? You're such a downright pathetic. You know that. LOL!
Zales, 11 Oct 2009Hi Luke, Just one quick question. Can the music shortcut button be removed from the home scre... moreAs I've seen some videos on youtube there are options that you can choose for a standy by screen.
such a mobile having both symbian and high pixel camera
MUST have at least 8GB internal memory.
No one can use it as smart phone,
useable just as a camera phone..
Shame on SE!!!!!
Just one quick question. Can the music shortcut button be removed from the home screen or replaced with some other shortcut, or is it fixed feature of SE theme?
Luke, 11 Oct 2009Will do, i'll be testing against the camera in the w995, and i'll also see how much of a diffe... moreI text a lot and im really hoping the full qwerty will be accurate and responsive...or at least i hope a firmware update can do that??
Luke, will the satio be upgradeable to the all new symbian OS which comes out next year, i think?
Luke, 11 Oct 2009Hi
Unfortunately comes with standard SE headphones! Nothing flashy im afraid.
as for au... moreThanks Luke for giving us your hands on opinion. I'm really sad because from what i'm hearing now it doesn't sound any better than my disappointing W960 - as you say there's lag, like the W960 and the screen is unresponsive so annoying like the W960 - how sad..
so can anyone tell me, is there still hope for me to get this phone if a new software update is released. I don't want another W960 slow piece of rubbish, i want a responsive screen and fast navigation - it seems more and more that the E72 would be my better option..such sad news for me :(

i'll post it on the aino and satio page. I'll probably do it later on in the evening after thesony event im going to, just incase i have any decent 'gossip' regarding sony's new stuff.

plz consider in your Aino review the camera performance and is it the same as the one in W995 or better than w 995 , is its camera is as c 905 or not?
and other features in comparison to w 995.
very poor, just a more expensive copy of the nokia 5800, basic menu, slow response on all applications, camera very slow and sometimes non responsive. Going to be lots of issues with this one!! dont bother!

This phone is the exception to the rule. it will not work without a sim in it. Atleast the ones i have dont. So before you buy it test it first, different region phones may work differently.
nick, 11 Oct 2009im glad luke is here he's saved me the hard work buy the omnia HD.Maybe hold off, if you can, to the samsung m880, the 12 mp with the optical zoom. I think the video on that will be very very impressive. Possibly back end of november for a release. Although you wont go wrong with the Omnia HD. It's a beast.
amuluma, 11 Oct 2009Hi Luke! Thanks very much for the reply! U answered it well! I actually have one more question... moreGlad i could help. fastport is the connection that pretty much 95% of sony phones have, that funny little double pronged connector. through the port, the phone can be charged, and accesories can be plugged in, like speakers, and headphones.
which is all well and good, however, without a seperate 3.5 jack, you couldnt plug your own headphones in, which means that even if you have a set of really impressive ones, they're no good. It also means that you cant charge the phone whilst its attached to a set of speakers for instance. Also, cant be charged if you have headphones in, which is a pain if you have a long trip on a train.
mainly its just lazy.
as for the x2, im not convinced by it. sure i love my x1, but then ive tried pretty much every homebrew i could find for it, 6.5, HTC touch, so its always been 'fresh'. The x2 has pretty identical stats power wise. The camera will be nice, but the screen size limits it somewhat, and as ive said i dont really take too many shots.
i also dont like the new construction of it, and believe the heavy use of plastic now makes a high end phone look cheap.
mainly, i just dont think sony have tried hard enough to progress the phone. im a big fan of windows mobile, but there's nothing exciting about it anymore. the panel feature is interesting, but largely unsupported. its like an x1.5.
im not nokias bigggest fan by a mile, but i look at the n900 and it shows they're willing to push the boat out and try something different (mainly the OS). im much more excited by that really.
Still, should know tomorrow if the Aino is worth my upgrade

I actually have one more question to ask. Everybody also seems to be complaining that Satio uses fastport. What actually is fastport? As I have no idea at all. And I am just wondering, why don't you wait and buy Xperia X2 instead of Satio? As I heard it is better than Satio in terms of performance. Thanks again for answering!
