This phone was announced at the same time as Samsung Omnia HD!
WE got bored with the Omnia HD already and Idou still not out!!!!!!!
Look at how many phones were released by Samsung since!!!! And some of them are not cheap ones.
SE unable to release more than 1 phone / year!!4 and that one has lots of problems: see X1!!!!!
You will see Idou will have similar track record.
SE phones has serious reliability problem like my x1 and c905!!
carefull before buy this....i won't buy it....
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2009EEwww go ahead and 5*ck your freakin chinaphone-like Omnia HD with a brick design! Yuck! That ... moreChinaphone-like????????????? :)))
Idou is a Chinese phone!
SE outsource all its production!
- brick.... :)))
Look at the Idou! It os an old Viewty enlarged - outdated!
and it is thick!!!!
And Yes VGA is better than HD! :)))
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2009Omnia outated? May be, but at least it was not at the release like Idou! HD vs. VGA... moreEEwww go ahead and 5*ck your freakin chinaphone-like Omnia HD with a brick design! Yuck! That HD recording of Omnia is only a stretched video size. And the video of Satio has a much much better quality when compared to Omnia... And FYI the Satio uses Li-Po which lasts longer, when you compare their talktime, Satio has 11 hours while omnia has only 10 hours.. And AMOLED screens are very weak outdoors and as most reviews say, the screen of Satio is really brilliant! And the Satio has a 12mp camera with Xenon and LED. Plus it has a way more sleek design and more fun and amazing UI. Have you seen the media menu, its much much more beautiful and when compared to Omnia, the Omnia looks like crap!! Memory isn't a problem since memory cards are available plus their are adapters for 3.5mm jacks.. And atleast the Satio is lighter while the HD is so heavy like a brick!! Disgusting!!
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2009No 3.5mm jack! No internal memory (practically) No OLED screen! No HD video No las... morehow funny is that despite of having 1000mah battery it lasts longer then 1500mah battery of nokia and samsung and despite of tft screen it still shows better color then amoled of samsung and nokia and also u brainless creature who ever u r 12mp smartphone is not outdated.....
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2009´ha ha´ ???? did you make joke? and it was funny? you laugh at your own joke? I do not th... moreYou know you are probably correct the Satio is rubbish It don't have a USB connector, or 3.5mm jack. It don't have a very big internal memory, it's screen is only TFT not OLED, It's battery is only 1000mAh, There is no multi touch on the screen and the camera don't have any optical zoom. - Have I missed anything out? I believe SE are going to release this phone with a free 64Gb SD card and Bluetooth headset in October 2011 it is concept at the moment - It is called the MPXL Hero!
The phone isn't delayed because of software problems!! It was just delayed due to the network operators who have this phone in their plans that's late and so the release date has been affected...
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2009it does not have 3.5mm jackNo 3.5mm jack!
No internal memory (practically)
No OLED screen!
No HD video
No lasting battery
Go get a few! Give them away to your friends etc.
Send some to developing countries - they will never able to afford it anyway.
It will be free here (with a cheap contract) but over there the price stay up!
(only the elite can buy what we through away)
This model is outdated now,
and it will be a hazardous waste in a year for sure.
at the end of 2010, nobody will get a phone with TFT screen and 1000mAh battery (VGA video) etc.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970´ha ha´ ???? did you make joke? and it was funny? you laugh at your own joke?
I do not think SE fans should laugh about the top Nokia phone. Especially, since Nokia makes profit while SE can not break even.
Nokia outsell SE (smartphones) 15:1
I do not care for the N97, but there are several good phones - much better than Idou on the market.
and more to come in the next few weeks.
Try a few and you will see.
They are fantastic.
Who needs a unreliable Idou with its lousy battery (Li-Po) when ......
I can see now :)))
There are some totally uneducated reps here :)))
OLED uses more power? :))))
And LCD uses more than Plasma???
You got good service in the UK from SE?
How many times?
SE has the worst customer service in the industry?
SE is so bas with customers that Se does not even release the full specs of the models.
BTW, can you see the SAR value of Idou on the SE website - easy to find?
It is mandatory by law to have it published - no phone can enter to the market without it!
And please get some education about mAh also :)))))
learn what it is stand for!
hopefully you do not embarrass yourself saying .... :)
probably a high school should not be enough for a rep job. ;)
Soon to be best phone on the market!
Where do you get delay because of software problems! The release date is and has been 13th October 2009 in the UK for over a month!
So, the reliability is no major concern!
But, stick with the facts:
Screen: NOT the best (only TFT) never been a problem with any phone I have had before used OLED in industry had lots of problems!
Battery: NOT the best (only 1000mAh - it should be 50% more power!!!!!) OLED uses more power than TFT a li-on 1500 battery will last as long as a Li-Pol battery it saves wieght!
Internal memory: Not the best (less than 1GB while others offer 8-16 times more!!!) You have the ability to hot swap 32Gb SD cards internal memory will hold all main data needed on phone.
Camera: 12mp digital great
Video: You would use a custom video camera for better to avoid camera shake, you won't take high quality video on a phone!
Customer service: NOT the best, I have always had great service from SE UK!
Price: NOT the best But cheaper than other smartphones of this quality and spec sold in the UK.
So Satio as (not Idou) is far from being bad.
Overall certainly not the worst, but it is even hard to find one single aspect of your arguement that stands out.
Yes it does not use new technology, but having used the new technology, give me what the Satio has over the new any day!
Long live Sony Ericsson, Bring on Satio (Aka Idou)
I had the W995 and now the Jet and I can tell you the only noticable difference between those 2 screens is the resolution but Amoled doesn't make a big difference,the blacks are just deeper,now perhaps if you compare with nokia TFT screens yes Amoled is way superior

It is not even released most places and there is ANOTHER delay because of software problems!
So, the reliability is a major concern!
But, stick with the facts:
Screen: NOT the best (only TFT)
Battery: NOT the best (only 1000mAh - it should be 50% more power!!!!!)
Internal memory: Not the best (less than 1GB while others offer 8-16 times more!!!)
Camera: MOT the best (useless 12mp but not the best camera on the market
Video: NOT the best (only VGA!!!!)
Customer service: NOT the best (just give them a call and you will see :)
Price: NOT the best (it is reported oall over the net that it is vary overpriced!!!!)
So Idou is far from being best.
Overall certainly not the best, but it is even hard to find one single aspect of this model that stands out from the competition.
please dont compare satio with w880&pixon 12
they are java simple phones that have only 12 MP camera
but satio is a advance iphone with special features like open gl and hd gaming and 600MH cpu and best VGA video(you can see video quality of satio in youtube)and 12MP CAMERA WITH THE BEST LENS&xenon flash that can be compared to digicams and full flash support explorer and tv-out nand and super sound quality like all SE PHONES with only 126 gr weight!!!
w880 will be available in south korea only but satio is available in global world
look at sony page
gsmarena write the specifications of x3(is not officialy annouced) because sony is important to people even to nokia &samsung fans
