What is exactly the main idea of putting more than 5 megapixels camera in a cell phone. Sorry to asking coz I'm new in the world of photography.
Miguell, 26 Jun 2009aww dude! you sneak? =D thats just..wrong!! i dont think you should tell that here.. th... moreHey main times it is journalist "sneaking" camera, recorders, etc. that gets the true story to the public. Look at the camera phone images we are getting from Iran, if it were not for camera phones, we would not know most of what is going on there. The communication officials in Iran has more or less shutdown the media. So SE give me a high quality 12mp camera phone that looks more phone than camera and you'll get a lot of sales from the press side.
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2009I use canons as my main cameras, but you are quite wrong in regarding the use of camera phones... moreaww dude! you sneak? =D thats just..wrong!!
i dont think you should tell that here.. the wrong person can read it!
there u go SE... dont make them smaller or else!! =D
i just believe that with so much work on this smartphone SE will polish well this product till the end of its release!
and for a prototype it is very good!
maybe a simple firmware update can change a lot on this phone!
SE is great for a reason!

I use them when cameras are not aloud and I can sneak a phone camera in to get the shoots I need; I am actually a photojournalist and shoot for a major NY news paper and has used a phone camera many times. I was excited at the idea of a 12mp phone camera, but the image quality falls far short of the 12mp image size.
OK, the race of 12 megapixels has begun with a Friday's free practice, team SE with Satio and team Samsung with Pixon12, both are still prototypes. So the result of this session shouldn't be taken as a final decision of the race winner. Both teams are still in progress untill they are ready on Monday Race.
And for now team Samsung won the free practice by 0.12 sec. Not so bad for team SE. Congrats for both teams!
besides as far as im concerned those 2 pics could come from the same machine!
cause despite the place of the shot is identical
the time differs by alot! look at the trees near the street!
the satio shows no leaves on the trees and a work site on that building on the left! then on the other machine no work and the trees are soo green!!
so the pixon pic is more recent or the oldest??
very strange.. cause how long that pic has? it should have a date at least!
for a decent evaluation they should photograph that place right now with satio on the same weather conditions!
sony cybershot cameras rule the market no samsung crap!
first if i want to enter Professional photograph ill go and buy a big lens nikon or cannon machine like the paparazzi! i would never go for a samsung one! never!
it's a phone!! not a professional photo machine! is smartphone ...to make calls and send sms and play ps games.. access the internet.. wacth tv... and is supposed to fit in my pocket!!
second of all yes is hard to see witch one is best!
in my opinion satio image is more natural then the other one tho the other has no sun light at all!
the images were took same place but different time of the day!
AND satio is still a prototype as in not finished!
we shall all talk in the end when it comes out!

well between those 2 pics posted previously is hard to tell.. but the one from satio seems to have a more natural tone...
still it would be necessary more pictures to decide whos the best!
the image quality here is crap
im not gunna say this phone is bad because its not but i think sony has to focus on the important think is their phone software i mean they are alwy trying to juice their camera up thinking they will get more sales but look at nokia they are the best example great cameras amazing software all in all BUY A NOKIA!

as for capacitive touchscreen ...it's already responsive with resistive touchscreen and it won't harm this phone if it was capacitive or resistive touchscreen as long it's very responsive ..
and as for battery 1500mAh well it will be nice but hey no hand-set is perfect ..
Needs to have capacitive touchscreen, larger battery (at least 1500mA), and at least 256MB internal RAM to be the near perfect device!
I've been a user of Sony Ericsson before Ericsson merged with Sony and I'm faithful to the brand as it's always performed.
I currently have an SE P1i and it's without a doubt the best phone I've ever bought, but it's not nearly as advanced as the new Satio.
The only other brand I've ever used is Samsung, but I'm an Ericsson user since '96 and always will be.
I can't stand Nokia or Apple and I'm itching to get my hands on the gorgeous new Satio so I can rub it in everyones faces.
Oh yes, they will be envious and many people will pay well deserved attention to SE after this release.
Go Sony Ericsson and Go Satio.
Leo, 26 Jun 2009Oh my god!! I think this iz the best phone SE ever had. Can someone tell me the IDR price? Or ... moreyeah Leo
SE is going to put it all in this one... 12Mp.. Ps games.. a true walkman.. radio... movies.... symbian...
those japs don't play around... they are really betting on this Satio!
still there are people complaining about the 3.5mm jack.. why in hell i need jack for?
i don't use jack for ages CAUSE i listen to music on my SE using SE earphones!
3.5mm jack in a cellphone? if those japs don't put in there then is it not needed!
and despite satio being a smartphone .. playstation phone.. walkman phone.. cybershot phone... radio..tv...ETC-> u still hitting " oh i wont buy it cause it has no 3.5mm output" then ur a loser... honestly... and it will be prolly to much expensive for ur pockets anyway!
SE satio is a mean bad machine.. does not need 3.5mm jack to sell! SE it self provides their great Wireless earphones! tho i sure prefer wire ones!
honestly.. we are in the 21st century.. ! i never did need such a 3,5mm jack output on a cellphone!
tho i agree with the battery part.. 1000mA\h which is 1 amp. per hour seems a bit " not enough" but hey this review was made basing on a prototype.. who knows till then...
