Anonymous, 18 Jun 2009Nokia in financial trouble?
Whole Finland was revitalized by a single corporation :... moreyes nokia in good trouble
im sure you know bbc:
90% down on profit!! almost there.... :)
of course Nokia will never admit they were on the edge... they were bad but hey at least they did not die on us consumers... so it's life!
i had nokia! BUt i prefer SE! why? cause i just prefer SE!cause for me.. it rocks! and im picky on my cells! who cares if nokia makes their own cells.. i still prefer SE and i dont live in Finland!
if dis handset got tv on it,it'll be da best in da market,think bout it se
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2009Yes this is an almost perfect phone on paper only except:
1: too thick - 13-15mm
2: 1000... moreLol@you again.
1. what about innov8 which is even thicker? 2-3 mm doesn't count especially if it's important for protecting the camera
2. as gsmarena stated, the battery is capable to run the device for 3 days with normal use
3. another prediction, if only I could see the future just like you...
4. same as above
5. yeah, outdated, but it still remains usable while i8910 HD don't
This comes out September 28th, which is pretty much October....ugh!
Nokia in financial trouble?
Whole Finland was revitalized by a single corporation : Nokia!
And there are Nokia factories all over Europe!
Nokia makes their own phone!
Profit dropped only recently but they never lost money while Se does and for long time now!
G900 was a total failure!
Slow processor, buggy software, lousy camera!
Se canceled production real fast. They sold stock since the sales were so slow.
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2009Yes this is an almost perfect phone on paper only except: 1: too thick - 13-15mm 2: 1000... moreI disagree with you because any of my SE phones disapoint me, I just wanted the Paris to bad and get the G900 instead that's my only reproach over this phone because I almost beat an omnia with my G900 apart from the screen size...
there are people saying SE is in financial trouble...
jesus dudes nokia was in trouble too!! serious trouble some time ago! yeah.. some believed it would disappear!
you think SE will go down? think sony might let go their cellphone circle in the middle of soo many circles it has in its main core? tv's circle.. console circle..plus the games circle..psp circle? all sound equipment circle etc.. etc...
one of these days ull gona buy a sony fridge! or toaster! =P
sony has many heads...
remenber SE is sony plus ericsson ... and besides all economic gurus KNOWS that ANY business has its high periods and its low periods... you cant be always gaining money... is a vicious circle but simple.. if its high they know it will go down eventually.. and if it is low they know it will raise eventually with their effort..
there is not a constant gain in any businnes in the world.. there are bad periods and SE is goig throught them right now! but will it raise? i believe so!
SE loses money each quarter. They close factories.
Some fans say Se will make this phone in Japan - I doubt!
SE could not make x1 in anywhere. HTC is making it or made it. Sales are slow.
Yes this is an almost perfect phone on paper only except:
1: too thick - 13-15mm
2: 1000 mAh battery is a bad joke
3: Li-Po battery - SE can not make is reliably
4: usual bad reception expected
5: screen technology TFT - outdated!!!
otherwise probably okay on paper.
The rest is unknown to us yet.
making some guesses:
- quality control will be bad
- buggy software due to hardware problems
- lousy case strength
Totally outdated by the time of release!
There are a few unscientific people here.
bad specs are not final
good specs - not even specs just fantasy names must be better than anything else on the market.
SE / Sony keeps coming up with this fantasy names for technology but the actual specs are never released.
The audio specs of most SE phones are not available - but it is claimed that they sound so great.
W890, G900,C902, X1 are all lousy. I have tried them all and compared them.
Idou´s only advantage is that it is not known how unreliable it will be. :)))
You making quality statements without ever using the unit!
That is really smart!
..., 18 Jun 2009and what about satio's advantage over omnia hd?:
1. you can see stuff on the screen with di... morego on!...
12.1 mp > 0.2 inch,8mp
Xenon > HD video with poor sound
lens cover > no lens cover
good material > cheep plastic
li po > li ion
excellent interface > good interface
September attack second impact ^^ http://semcblog.com/2009/06/18/aino-satio-and-yari-come-to-us-in-september/
SE is not a part of Sony that's why some of SE phones (the international part) use the cheap sensor instead of Exmor (S001 vs C905=ownage 8o )
