kal, 01 Sep 2009It's safe to expect a Christmas release in my opinion.kal, its releasing already, iguess you wili buy in christmas
WE dnt hav to be in a hurry.SE is under-staffd and they would love to release a bug-free phn for consumers.look at d bright side cos, dis phn wil surely cum to d market.omnia hd got its date pussed back too wit its crappy video rec.n97 came ontime wite trucks load of buggs.please be patient.
My last 10 phones have been sony ericssons but lately all i have noticed is the problems mainly with software which i just cant handle anymore so with regret i be jumping ship to the apple i phone 3gs, unless this phone is superior....which is very unlikely given sony ericssons record.
Samsung as the second largest mobile phone manufacturer in the world seems to be right to have their own operating system for mobile phones embedded in their smart-phone. This was revealed after one of Samsung executives told Telecoms Korea that Samsung was considering the need to develop an OS made their own. It is planned that their own OS would be based on TouchWiz and Linux.
The both top rank manufacturers now are looking forward and seem to be leaving Symbian OS on their high end level. But SE just starting to use this OS on this phone.
Isn't that pity?
This Phone is now selling at Singapore for $1098 with GST. I just get it today.
So SE has indeed pushed back the release date(sigh...). I'm getting an eery feeling about all this. Does this mean that the Satio is having unexpected technical problems or is this a sign that SE is in a deeper trouble than we believe?
I really hope that the next SE phones are adequatly priced and of superior quality, so that SE can survive. IMO no other brand's camera phones can match SE in terms of cheer picture quality. That is something SE is still ahead. Let's hope they don't lose that edge.
Vodafone Netherlands changed the releasedate from "October" to "end of October" :(
Arak, 01 Sep 2009what is the strategy ??? please elaborate I mean when koiyama came after the silly CEO that broke the touch screen strategy and UIQ koiyama restart everything doing new lines and probably abandoning cyber-shot and walkman for bravia and PSP brend (which isn't not yet sure) and in the next anouncement we will see what will be the last move from this smart man and then the coming CEO will officially launch SE in all rounder smartphone market like Nokia or HTC thank's to winmo,android and symbian foundation :)
I've read in a forum that the release date was pushed back, yet again, to 16/10/2009. I've also read that the pre-order price is around 565 Euro. Anyone has more news? Can anyone confirm this?
Continuously pushing back the release date of a product is never a good marketing strategy and considering the current SE finantial situaton, it only makes matters worst. I Hope they compensate all the delays with a sale price below the competition.
If the price is competitive, they still might make it through. After all, Satio is still the only 12 MP smartphone with xenon flash. So, in that particular area, it doesn't have competiton (yet).
Sony used to be my favorite mobile phone with its smart user interface ease of use plus the rigid built, Now what would I do with 12 megapixel and does it worth it I think the concept of having a camera on your mobile is to take pictures When need to record a moment and you will sacrifice the quality for the sake of convenience, and not a big sacrifice too most of the 5 megapixel mobile phone cameras are excellent. We need a smart interface ease of use, longer battery life I am not smart it shows on the way I express my self but I know what I need.
Does this have exactly the same processor as the Omnia HD and iPhone 3GS? Why doesn't GSM Arena add this part for the Satio: PowerVR SGX graphics?
