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
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2009Omnia outated? May be, but at least it was not at the release like Idou! HD vs. VGA... moreGet a life mate it's not been an Idou for months now that name is as outdated as the information you are looking at, SE have updated their spec, and it is now the SATIO. You are as outdated as the name Idou stop trashing the phone we know you don't like SE phones well don't buy one go buy you little pixon 12, do we care? WE will buy our Satio with the TFT screen, Propritory connector, and tiny internal memmory. We know what we are buying - The best phone on the market!! Now stop leaving comments on here and let real people leave real comments!
Latest news is that s/e are going to release a new software update already to cure more problems on the satio and thats why its been delayed..it could be another few weeks before release..
May be, but at least it was not at the release like Idou!
HD vs. VGA
1500mAh battery vs. 1000
OLED vs. TFT (low quality and sucks power)
5.5 hours of videoplayback with a singe charge!!!!
3.5mm jack!!! :)))
carfone have delayed the lauch of satio with no reason or another date when it will be on sale,,s/e are plagued by delays and will seriously damage the company yet again..
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Bought the satio.. Yeah rihght! Your obviously an omnia hd owner and your just trying to defend your purchase cause you cant accept the fact that your phone is already outdated and the new satio beast phone is the best!! =p
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2009this phone doesnt have auto-rotate.. or is it just me...it has an auto rotate
IMPORTANT!!! Before you buy and complain satio you must see this!!!
the first nHD game ?
Game labyrinth on satio prototype :
Satio UI and TV out :
and this :
video sample of satio:
Must see----> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDECJO_Ahww&feature=related
though satio can only record VGA video but no phone video like this quality. it is real VGA video quality (OMAP 3430) and it is not like fake HD video of samsung omnia HD, samsung stretch omap 3430 to HD video. Satio video is the best.
This video of unboxing Satio..the package comes with a POUCH and micro sd(USB)adoptor
I hope in all retail package they would include those 2 items and not become regional.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2009Yes, butyour the minority! :)) minority? thanks for your feeling judgement
YEs, the countdown in the UK is a joke! SE screwup and the price went up! :)))))
I guess SE can not even see 8 days ahead!
This model will have some reliability issues if DR had to change the release date so suddenly. (???)
And SE increased the preordr price ??? :))))
What a shame! They can not even make up their mind about the price. Pity!
