100 million USD?
Well, they need to sell much more for that!
Idou for 1000 USD is ridiculous.
Anyway, it does not matter. In developed countries after a few weeks it will be offered for FREE with a cheap contract.
X1 was and it is still offered and nobody takes it.
SE needs to come up something much better than Idou.
12mp camera is not that hot anymore. By the time of release it will be even less attractive.
It takes a few minutes to realize that 12mp is practically not needed - good quality of image is more important than resolution.
for me and for many others the 1000mAh lousy battery will be the deal breaker!
Idou will not be taken for free with these features.
But, even that case. To give it away for FREE with a contract - the service provider can not pay more than 250-300 USD for Idou since the contracts are so cheap. On that price SE can not make much profit:
REMEMBER - it will not be SE who will make IDOU!
SE has to contracted out! like almost all of its models!
Video again nice sound ^^ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4BrkkbCXMA&feature=related
I hope SE will survive this crysis but the CEO says that the joint venture need 100 millions to stay on flot and I just hope that the X2 will not disapoint neither the android X5. :)
Nokia was in serious trouble to and hey.. is still around!
if sony ericsson IS indeed that bad.. (with i doubt) maybe is time to become.. just sony! bye bye ericsson!
remember there are many brands out there that are not likely to please the general public but they are still alive.. why should SE go down if the other wont?
BUT if things get really nasty maybe sony will let SE to die if after this things don't go better... witch is not likely to happen!
anyway it is expected to the global recession to stop soon in the next 6 to 9 months!
Miguell, 25 Jun 2009yea 4 gb is low for nowdays standards! in fact 4 gb is not that big of a deal anymore.. wh... moreSE is in trouble and need 100 millions $ of profit or they are gonna be on bankrupt
Miguell, 25 Jun 2009yea 4 gb is low for nowdays standards! in fact 4 gb is not that big of a deal anymore.. wh... moreits nt their first touchscreen phn.if i am correct the satio should be their 12th or so.they r gud at touchscreen phns and i knw they wont mess it up cos, d p1 was an emperor.all they have to do is focus on quality control more.an SE insider said they r trying to up d internal memory to 4gig.if dats d case its beta than 128mb.
yea 4 gb is low for nowdays standards!
in fact 4 gb is not that big of a deal anymore.. when we add all those videos.. pictures.. games... and tons of music... 4 gb is nothing really..
u can fill up ur phone with 2 gb of music and images with ease nowdays! imagine now with videos and pictures u'll have in there...
i hope they make a basis of 8gb... seems more balanced for this kind of phone!
still im worried.. its their first touchscreen phone... it hope it has the expected success so they have legs to move on to Satio gen2 or whatever they have in mind...
Miguell, 25 Jun 2009well i would say satio is impressive on the photographic section.. 12mp and all cyber shot t... moreas far as the HD in samsung omnia hd is just usable in the recording and recording playback and nowhere else it's just a FAKE as for the sound dolby fake and DNSE which is SONY's DSEE chinese like copy...
But SE is disapointing givin up on the internal memory war while they had 8gb instead of keepin it or makin it grow because consumers still not understand that with an 4 gb u have the same capacity of memory as if you had a DVD...
Miguell, 25 Jun 2009well i would say satio is impressive on the photographic section.. 12mp and all cyber shot t... moreIf this phone is for a 'not to do and what to do' study, then SE should not bet their life for this.
well i would say satio is impressive on the photographic section.. 12mp and all cyber shot tech in there...
at video level is not that bad... not hd but who needs it right? dont need "memory eating" hd videos...
but i wonder.... how will the other 12mp phones from other brands be? the main focus on this satio is the 12Mp cam and touchscreen! video is not a main focus here.. and at sound level.. they dont go much into it...
i believe satio WIll be good BUT as we ALL know.. the first one is always the "most defective one" and that the second "baking" brings a better cake.. but a SATIO gen 2 is still a dream...
remember this is the first touchscreen with so much tech added from SE ( i believe..)
and we all know the first one is more like a "not to do and what to do" lesson in technology... the second always comes better...
none the less... this satio is impressive...
an se fan, 25 Jun 2009I just can agree with your post...Now you hate SE, or just because was made by HTC?
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2009I had the X1 - so do not tell me how good is that! :)))) It is a total disaster! When we... moreMaybe the X1 is not a good phone, but was made by HTC, not by Sony Ericsson! HTC is HTC Sony Ericsson is Sony Ericsson.:) I agree the internal memory isn't enough, but the phone is not completed yet, believe me, believe us ok?:) If you put 32 Gb internal memory, the phone probably will be slow. Look at the N97, is slow!

It is a total disaster!
When we... moresatio will be expensive enough as it is
internal memory will only make it more expensive by at least a 100$
so i REALLY perfer it to have no internal memory
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2009I agree: No excuse for SE not to put a 3.5mm jack on all models!!!!!I have Nokia E71, and I'm planning to buy a 3.5mm jack Shure earphones, the best headsets by your recommendation. What do you think?

that satio looks somewhat different...
maybe its one of the latest frimware satio.. oo
the tabs are different..
No excuse for SE not to put a 3.5mm jack on all models!!!!!
Mobilemaster, 25 Jun 2009You have to wait more, MstL, more, coz is NOT completed yet, and I know you want to be better,... moreI had the X1 - so do not tell me how good is that! :))))
It is a total disaster!
When we talk about internal memory we should not compare models - my point is that Idou would be better with a 32GB memory as it is now!
and NO EXCUSE for SE not to put 16-32 GB internal memory into a model like Idou!!!!!!!
But I guess greed is too powerful? or incompetence?
like the 1000mAh battery?
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2009x1 has a better camera than n97? lolYes, I rad this on a SE site, not sonyericsson.com, another site, like semcblog.
