geez, that was a long post. although i don see why se wont just add the damn 3.5 hole, if just to boost its sales, i really dont mind not having it, i actually prefer it without it(i use an hbhds980). sometimes, i like to hoard and hope no one else buys the phone but me so i get to enjoy the goodness and brag about it features to others XD. that aside, your comment about the loss of quality using an adaptor is false unless you are getting something really cheap. its a simple digital conversion and not some complex digital-analog-wave process. but then again, who wants to lug a fat adaptor around?
Kal, 01 Jun 2009I'm matured from the very begining. It's good to see that some kids are now grown up overnight... moreI said the same thing as you did on 29.05.2009
but my comments is on your language and not on the content.
se has to reform its ways to introduce products in the market , I was expecting at least 3 finalized smartphones including satio(idou) to be announced.
i dont see the point to announce a mobile 2 times in 3.5 months and still not to finished.
this strategy is killing our minds.
I dont mind really if se has lesser specifications than others , but i cant tolerate to wait 6 months for a mobile to be released
disappointed on the OS downgrade.
i hope SE did some good mode on that 5th thing.
as for the new Samsung 12mpx fone, it is not a smart phone, what were they thinking? They want to put the same camera n flash in i9820 FULL HD or something? come on!
Nokia is dead in the water, they has to release a 8mpx (or more)full touch smart phone, by the time Samsung n SE launch theirs, or they are dead in the water.
Kal, I thought we'd agreed not to attack the HD or Satio anymore. Please don't go against your words. And regarding the Pixon 12, no doubt it's a good phone but we've yet to see it's performance. We don't even know it's CPU. Who knows it can even be compared with the Omnia HD, what more to say the satio. And regarding the camera parts, Satio will have 4 more months more than the Pixon 12 thus enabling SE to make more innovations on their Satio. I strongly believe that the Satio will outperform all the 12MP camera phone as well as all the other handsets which is due to be released within this year.
Kal, 01 Jun 2009I'm matured from the very begining. It's good to see that some kids are now grown up overnight... moreBecause even in its "unfinished" state it's got the specs and the looks to be the makings of an amazing phone.
I'm tired of your baseless and highly opinionated comments Kal. Stop being a cheerleader and take your Samsung fanboyism somewhere else.
Kal, 01 Jun 2009Hehehehehe. Hoh jaust vame back and waooo..Just as I thought, it got a new name 'Staio". Cool,... moreGood thing there are no big moths near me. Perhaps if you improved on your typing/spelling and supported your highly opinionated post with some evidence, you'd make a stronger argument.
1. S60 being 5th edition is more of a fault of Symbian probably not having the software ready in time for planned release of Satio; otherwise it would probably have to be delayed more.
2. Why not compare it to the Omnia HD? Compare these things side by side and they're quite comparable. Perhaps the impressive materials quality makes the Satio look a cut above the HD to you? Please, enlighten me with your rationale for this argument.
3. Yes Pixon 12 is quite impressive, it's screen sounds absolutely faboulous, and the materials even seem decent. However, it's obviously an apples and oranges comparison; it's not a smartphone. Also, wide angle lens isn't necessarily a big deal unless you're trying to take a picture of a lot of people from very close.
This phone isn't close to finished; I think that's fairly obvious for anyone to see.
There hasn't been much talk about the details of the camera so I suspect (hope) a lot hasn't been finalized yet. Either that or there isn't much else (which would be sad). I find it odd that SE wouldn't use a Carl Zeiss lens since Sony uses it on their cameras anyways. Due to this lack of information it is still quite possible that this thing has EXMOR.
D&G is right though, don't expect any major changes; it's pretty certain that if it had EXMOR Sony would've mentioned it to the point where you'd think they'd changed the name again. Here's to hoping it's just that they will release fully detailed specs on the EXMOR and other image processing features sometime in the future.
To whoever mentioned wanting a slide-out keyboard, you're missing the point of this phone. Also dual sim is somewhat of a niche feature.
Also in response to wrAG "3. 3.5mm jack is standard, iam very confused why many people always complain that satio doesnt have standard 3.5mm jack whereas until now SONY headset audio quality is the best, if you want to hear your music on speaker, you can buy audio cable in SE store..which is out to date, 3.5mm jack or the best sony headset ? "
Sorry buddy, the "best Sony headset" you're referring to is an adaptor for the fastport to 3.5mm, with flimsy wiring. No matter what, connecting headphones directly to the phone is going to provide better audio quality than an extension.
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2009prefer the name, IDOU...yupyup
they shouldnt have changed the name.
idou sounds better than satio.
Anonymous, 01 Jun 2009Sorry, but NO EXMOR for Satio. If it has, they should said it long time ago.you will hear about it soon bro...wait and hear
Arak, 01 Jun 2009Again another child , please stop your chidish expressions .
i think you need an upgrade in y... moreI'm matured from the very begining. It's good to see that some kids are now grown up overnight and getting to kew the ground reality.
Will you be kind enough and tell me what did you get out of this may 28th announcement? You guys made it look like SE is going to answer everything about IDOU on 28th. End result: You got a new NAME. That's all. Why we even supposed to compare this to any model? It's always "unfinished" and will remain so for another 4 months. Then there will be another "BIG" announcement.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Sorry, but NO EXMOR for Satio. If it has, they should said it long time ago.
to all se fans..
dont worry about pixon 12 coz it doesnt mean satio is bad but it is a competition...i dont think samsung camera can beat EXMOR, i just like samsung pixon 12 coz the screen quality but the other features are usual things not special for me...satio is a smartphone but pixon 12 is not a smartphone, both phones are diff...though both phones use the same 12MP camera...
SE put up a 28mm wide angle lens and a power LED flash too!!!!! And HD recording please!!!!!!! And customize your s60 UI with the new media center just like the AINO!!!!!! Please make the UI go faster!!!!!! Please take out the long renowned Purple fringing and your red to pink problem in your image quality!!!!! Please name the model as CW800 (cyber walkman phone) or something!!!!
By a year after
We might even have Sony's DSLR camera as a mobile phone (alpha) That would be so great (but bulky)
Kal, 01 Jun 2009Hehehehehe. Hoh jaust vame back and waooo..Just as I thought, it got a new name 'Staio". Cool,... moreAgain another child , please stop your chidish expressions .
i think you need an upgrade in your mind and not se.
This competition is very healthy and this is the reason that comapnies are trying to do their best .
without this competition this forum had never existed.
Kal, 01 Jun 2009Hehehehehe. Hoh jaust vame back and waooo..Just as I thought, it got a new name 'Staio". Cool,... morethough iam a se fan but iam very happy samsung make pixon 12 and i will buy both phones, satio and pixon 12,
satio coz it is a smartphone and use omap 3430. pixon 12 coz the screen quality is great. both phones are great, nokia is looser
Hehehehehe. Hoh jaust vame back and waooo..Just as I thought, it got a new name 'Staio". Cool, what else we got here. Oh ic, it went back to Symbian S60 5th edition...ooooooooo..oh wait now it comes with 8gb microSD. Waooo! Everything else remains where it was right? Ya keep hoping keep dreaming and keep posting BIG talks like this is not yet doen..se will improve and bla bla. That's standard SE now. And just to remind you, don't even think of comparing this to HD. This is coming no where close to it. Even Pixon12 will be in the market before this. So those with big moth, who kept fighting for it, I feel sorry for you.
who cares about samsung pixon12, its looks like the old pixon, nothing is new except for 12MP...this satio is slow but a new look & design even in UI....
SE is taking their time, no need to rush, maybe this phone is equip with 850Mhz processor...
look at SE new phone aino and the other one which is the first phone release by SE equip with great features....see no need to be rush, samsung take your time in june....
SE_INSIDER was right!
and now, cos samsungs doing 12mpx, 12mpx isnt so useless anymore. *rollseyes*
