@Nick, without doubt Omnia HD is an excellent handset with insane video recording capability but have you seen a live footage of it's video? If yes then I believe you can see it clearly, the noise produced while the video is being captured as well as the poor audio quality. At the end of the day, everything is still down to the optics and sensors used.
To be honest, I was fairly disappointed with the pictures taken by the satio although it's still a prototype. Here's the link to view the pictures.
From what I saw, I can deduct that the pictures produced are not of top-end quality and this came as a unpleasant surprise. If Sony Ericsson refuse to put in TOP QUALITY LENS AND SENSORS, then the Satio will end up to be another failure just like the K850i. I mean, look at nokia. All their N-series are using Carl Zeiss optics and to be honest, the picture quality is superb. Why, even my N82 can easily outperform the 8MP Samsung Innov8. So at the end of the day, it's still the optics and sensors which really plays the major role. Of course the PROCESSOR cannot be disregarded.
So, I've finally came out with a conclusion that if Satio won't be using HIGH QUALITY LENS and the supreme EXMOR sensor, then it shall fail like all the previous Sony Ericsson handsets. The same applies for the Pixon 12. If it's not using any good quality lens, then I don't see any reason why it will be better than the Satio. THE VICTOR IN THIS CAMERAPHONE RACE WILL BE THE ONE WHO WILL BE USING THE BEST CAMERA HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE.
Sony Ericsson, it's time to wake up from your dream and come back to reality as consumer knows that they want. High megapixels count can only be good if it is equipped with/utilizing high-end components.
nick, 01 Jun 2009how about no. the omnia HD has better video quality mate.you can compare both phone video quality by your self, do you think hd video is always good? you are stupid
I have a c905 at the moment, but i didnt like it. 905 cameras Is 8.1 Mp but it doesnt matter. My ex phone was nokia n95 and it had 5 mp camera. Nevermore nokias camera was better than c905, i cant Record video like n95 :(. So im regretful.. And i think Idou will same, I dont trust Pixels figures anymore :)). But finally this is so pretty.
Kurt, 01 Jun 2009What processor and speed do we have on this machine?same as omnia hd
it's wounderful phone but it's have very very small internal memory comparing with N97 and it's have no keysbad this is not good thing
wooow, the video quality really impressed me. its alot better than the crap i saw the other day. now i wish it was just wider, say, d1, then perfect. i wonder also how these 12mpx shots are 4:3 when the samples on the 28th were 16:9. hmmm.
btw, quick comparison.
initial video: data rate - 773kbps, audo - 109kbps stereo @ 44khz
new video: data rate - 3745kbps!!! without audio. thats some really good quality for vga.
omnia hd: 4929kbps with 47kbps audio@8khz.
This phone is the next big thing. although a little dissapointed with the internal memory. but the 12.1 Megapixel camera is a killer. I love it.
i just they decide to build reliablity in it. unlike K850i they are crap. oh a friend bought a new SE phone. its gone back to shop twice. shockingly enough it keeps switched itself off. and locks up.
well please SE start making your phones in japan. with quality components. if i had a pound for each mate thats got a faulty SE mobile. i could buy an IDUO.
the pixon12 is a nice lil handset, but even i can see the satio is a better.
still, neither outdoes the omnia HD, which is immense

Ini... moreThe phone isn't finished yet, SE confirmed it, wait till June or July, you will see the whole specs, including the internal memory. Do you think SE is crazy with 128 MB internal memory? In the SE site the internal memory is not confirmed!!! Is NOT confirmed!
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2009stop fighting pls...it is just a competition..too early you result both phones togather...both... moreYou are right Indra! This phone ROCKS! That Samsung 12 is not even a smartphone, like this. Well, Samsung is not weak, I can't tell this, I can tell Satio is much better than that model.
awesome phone. I love it so much. Sony Ericsson Satio, its a beautiful name. i have never doubt Sony's imaging capabilites. It always number one in the world. Trust only Sony as it produces movie using its own camera and their very own Sony Entertainment. can't wait for it to be released..
