I doubt the final price will be 1000$, it cost that much NOW because some very few dudes wanna say in front of their friends ''hey look I have the Satio 12mp and it's not even released'' but 3 days later the Satio get officialy released and then he will understand he paid 300$ more for only 3 days,pain in the as* :) :)
The Samsung i8910 was 850$ the first 2 weeks then 650$...
i cant wait to get one of this phone. the 12MP on it is going to do it all.. this is going to be a great iphone killer
The SGD1200 sets are Export Sets only now. Wait another week to get the local sets.
This beauty is available in Australia (mobicity) for $1,169 (!!!) and is called U1i Satio.
nick, 06 Oct 2009it's got a plastic screen. is that ever scratch resistant?!if i am not mistaken, yes it does.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2009SE phones are outsourced!!!!!
They are made by other companies and they put SE logo on them... moreSE MAKES SATIO.
stop the shit comments saying htc or sagem makes the phones.
they are not!
it only happened once and wont happened again.. with x1...
coolkai, 06 Oct 2009Satio got the Scratch resistant screen or not??it's got a plastic screen. is that ever scratch resistant?!
Satio is very expensive and we cant expect that price drops so that many se fans can buy it beacause all se phones are ovepriced .Look at the w902 ,c902 etc.They are still overpriced comparing to equal phones from other companies.
It is 800-1100 USD now!
I bet it will be 500 USD in 60 days.
In 20 days it will be offered FREE (in most developed countries) with a cheap contract - 40 USD /month
(most people pay 50-100 USD anyway)
So most people can try it!
My major concern is the battery!
(and the quality control)
It will kill the model!
Thr other major concern is the lousy customer service!!!!!!
SE has the worst customer service in the industry!
You keep saying what SE will do in the future -
others will release some excellent phones too.
What is important what you can buy today!!!!!
You can not make any calls with announcements.
And look back - people hyped about x1 for 1-2 years and finally what we got? a lousy phone!
Now, you hyped about the Idou for months and what we got? a n outdated TFT 1000mAh phone that probably will have some reliability issue just like all the recent SE phones.
What others do: release phones so fast the it is hard to follow. They are reliable and have great features for much much less money.
SE had difficulty for years to include a 3.5mm jack - how pathetic is that? :))))
the lousy connection on the side also ridiculous.
SE: where is the miniUSB charger?????
SE phones are outsourced!!!!!
They are made by other companies and they put SE logo on them!
Companies like Sagem, HTC and several Chinese companies.
SE keeps this from the public and the specs are still not fully released!!!!!!
Looked on sony web site today and they are releasing the satio in the england on the 8th of october woop woop
Released here today in Iran , but only in black and for 1150 USD, I'm sure price will drop fast.
I think it will be a huge seller, too, but good grief....when is it gonna be released? That's really the big thing with SE....it takes them so long to release their products.
The Satios battery needs initial care and only then would it perform to its fullest potential. You need to drain it completely and charge it overnight for the first few days. Yes, it sounds like something that modern batteries need not go through, but it needs to be done nonetheless. Hopefully after using this method, it can easily go 1.5-2 days with push notifications, WiFi et al. For 3 days? you need more capacity :p
