I demand that you take back your words and read through the specifications more carefully( with your eyes WIDE OPEN ). Secondly, it's not up to you to decide whether we should buy satio or that useless plastic HD. You are not a dictator. If you wish to be one, I suggest you go elsewhere and post it. Never show your h!deous face here ever again. Thank you.
well, i own a 5320 xm, [ not a nokia fanboy by any means], used the k810 before that, i terribly missed the camera , so im going for a excellent camera with symbian this time around, idou [satio now[ was on my list, and no matter how much u people scream, a 3.5 is more convinient than sonys solution, just like nokia fanboys cant explain away the lack of xenon in n86. its a limitation, period, the phone is stuffed full of other things, just focus on that. and to b honest, lack of a standard port broke the deal for me in this case, when i pay this much[500 euro, i guess], i wont take imperfections.
you're all so ignorant.
DNLA isnt useful in a car, nor is it efficient regarding power...
nor is the use of bluetooth headsets against standard headphones, which also provide better quality
resistive is less responsive than capacitive which ever way you look at it. it has to be, entirely based on the way it works. resistive is also more prone to breaking (unless you drop glass obviously)
no internal memory is a shame. having 16gb already without a memory card is nice, and some of us have over 32gb worth of music, and so in this respect the satio/idou isnt good enough
why would you buy an inferior handset to the omnia HD? I see no point. the HD is clearly a better phone. no excuses need to be made for that phone, because it has it all.

Just imagine you can listen to music while your precious phone is tucked securely in your luggage while traveling preventing thief.
Just imagine you can listen to music at home free to walk around or at your garden watering the plants. Or listen to music while you are outside of your home watching those sexy girls passing by.
After I've used my wireless headphone, I will never be using my old wired headphones again.

Those people who still want their movements restricted by that annoying and tangling wires, don't buy SE, don't force your OUTDATED 3.5mm "hole in the phone" on us.
SE phones are for today and the future, and that is Bluetooth and DLNA. I am a wireless adherent too, so I'll stick with SE. Very simple isn't it?
Anonymous, 29 May 2009Idou is a mobile phone of today? maybe future, because it will be release on Q4. lol just jok... moreFriends, I believe, there is only one reason here why we can not agree on those arguments of 3.5mm, internal memory, video playback, etc... the reason is, SE and Sony in particular has a history of not tagging along the BANDWAGON... Sony always has a history of doing it his own way and let others follow.
i am i nokia fan all the way sony is going go the weigth is good the onl thing i dont like about this phone is the small battery this phone haves but i know nokia have some hide to bring out of the lab just now to macth this phone and better
Well than, there is very simple solution. If the 3.5mm jack is so important to you, than simply don't buy the damn phone. Just don't try to convince us that it is the most important thing on the gadget. I personally don't care about it at all and I bet other people too.
Different people, different needs.
128 MB ? The internal memorey isn't enough , espcially for such mobile , I thought it would has at least 400 MB like the X1

just joking, anyway..
as what been said by that man, 3.5mm jack is standard. it will never be outdated. Not all things has a DNLA connection, but almost all (except for SE) has a 3.5mm jack.
Idou is a great phone. But its specs is not that too good. (compare to others, like omniaHD)
I will buy Idou if they will add:
-better ram about 256mb.
-Wide angle lens (12mp is no need without good lens)
-Digital Compass and FM transmitter
128MB memory is enough for me, since it is expandable, but still, it is better to have at least 8gb. It is great to fit the xenon flash on a 13.3mm phone.
as of now, OmniaHD is still the phone for me since it gives everything i want in a phone. The only thing that makes me think to buy Idou is its XENON flash and its design.

I’ve no doubt this handset will have the right form factor and a slick UI, but having to use a proprietary port & adapter in order to listen to music is really killing it for me.
SdXW, with just a 1000 mAH battery just how long do you think you’ll get out of those Bluetooth headsets?
3q5I is quite right, 3.5mm is the standard by which most users want to enjoy their music by, myself included.

HD, maybe because it has Omap3 + 3d acc. OmniaHD also has a HD and 3D games.
No complaints on W810i its PERFECT. Any mobile that could substitute?
I have never understood why Sony Ericsson, when you consider that Sony produces world class camcorders, stubbornly refuses to incorporate better specifications for video recording on their handsets. If the Satio doesn´t address this many will wonder why.

Well, maybe you are using a CHEAP PAIR OF BLUETOOTH HEADPHONES. I am using an Altec Lansing bluetooth headphones with frequency response of 10Hz to 20Khz, noise figure of -65db.
And why you should put in your files to the internal memory of your phone? It is not recommended because internal memory of phones are used by the operating system and applications of the phone, your files must reside in the external memory in order not to slow down your phone.

I honestly never had to use the 3.5 jack, but just in case you didn't get it the first time, I repeat: Idou (and other SE phones) DO HAVE the holy jack. IT IS ON THE HEADSET !!!
I think I'm gonna go mental if I read one more complain about it :)

HD???HD??? does it mean video HD?
3.5mm jack is not outdated, it's standard. That DLNA that you are talking about will maybe be ok in 5 years, but now it's just in development fase and really buggy. Wireless headsets? LOL. When I want bad music quality, I'll get that. I guess at least 8 GB of internal memory is outdated, too :)))
I don't know what the hell is wrong with Sony Ericsson, Nokia's low end phones get 8 GB and 3.5 mm jack and FM transmitter... And their flagship gets 32 GB..
Well, I don't really care, that's why SE had 300M euros loss, and Nokia made some profit, so if SE wants to lose money, go on, just go ahead and make mediocre phones like this
