I brought it, it's great. I got a free memory card, so all MP3 fits nicely, and combined with the excellent media-player style interface and good quality headphones, this is good for music. The battery needs nightly charging though. The camera's immense!
i used satio for 8 months! It'a good camera phone, it almost beat digicams, but the xenon flash only works in close up mode and even if you turn on the red eye reduc still it does not do it well, the light exposure do not do well also, but all in all the phone provides a good picture quality, as for the video, even for WVGA result, it renders good quality output the only problem is that the audio is so quite even if you shout, it somewhat the mic can't handle it well. the built of the satio is good, stylish and bulky for a smartphone, but because of it's plastic body the paint starts to crash, especially on the lock key on the left part. The headset is superb, but not the speaker grill, but still it is loud and clear. the main problem of the phone is when you start internet, it's slow and it hangs...lots of lag...i guess what make's it expensive from nokia N8(that i recently bought) is that SE bought the symbian software to be the OS of this phone. No update available for this phone, only once i remember. but if you only do camera and video to watch for normal mp4 this phone is good...i also forgot to mention, the battery life of this phone, is not good as well!!! it nearly drop for just one day, and too much use of internet, yeah, it really drops and even drain!

Anonymous, 07 Jan 2011come on men!!!! whit the cameras pros you cant take 100 pics whit one charge!!! Be real!!!Actually you can take a 100+ set of images with flash in one go. I have done so several times. In fact I stopped taking books out of the library, I just go in with the phone, shoot the pages and then view them on the PC.
Now you may ask why the flash is used instead of the document mode. Well that is because the satio tends to prefer low ISO's but high exposure timings and hence the handshaking may cause blurring of the pics. Turn the flash on and due to the quick nature of xenon flash, low exposure times are used. Hence minimal blur. The phone has an average shot to shot speed of 3 seconds and you can shoot a 100 pages in 5-6 minutes.
