3.5mm audio jacks are becoming the standard in modern devices that claim to be multimedia workhorses. The Idou has the CPU and the rest but yet, they failed to include such a basic feature.
I for once do not like to carry around adapters that are bulky and degrade sound. Heck, even tiny devices like the Nokia E52 now have the jack.
Other than that I like the specs.
hmmm i heard it was only a concept phone...
i hope it is only "concept"
i think it will have same problem as k800i in terms of camera slider.
slide open in your pocket and goes snap crazy :P
looks like a beauty though
i assume it will be a hit phone if it doesn't have the same problems as X1

we should not expect too much from Sony Ericsson.............there r not in very good market position!
Its very nice phone, but for me its interesting why it has SIMBIAN and Micro SD not memory stick and windows mobile? I think its not real sony ericsson but made together with some ather compony
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970then get a hi fi system and connect your audio profile headphones to get the best results ..
most of the w series have headphones that the cable have 3,5mm jack , so stop complaining about small things
it does not matter if idou will be outdated at the time of its release , since it still will be a good phone to be purchased ,
in my case the most important is the camera, and i hope that the picture quality is maintained to the level that we shouldnt change it for better at least for 2 or 3 years
on the other hand new technologies are on the way and 2010 to 2014 would have many surprises in all directions , , such as processors , transmission technologies , camera sensors , , the question is , how much more we need and expect for a normal user ???
I beleive that we are all waiting for the news in few hours , hence many are in silence waiting for the happy news,,, se feels like a suspence company or let say thriller , ,
on the other hand , still 2 goog phones have been released w995 and c901 and c903 will flollow
good work by se and i am always with you till the end .

needIDOU, 27 May 2009Final Announce Idou What time On 28 May 00.00am?The announcment will be in London, at 18:30.

Anonymous, 24 May 2009bands are operator dependent and they get those bands from spectrum alloted by govt, its not i... moreYes you are right about the frequencies, operator dependant.
But if your favorite radio broadcasts on 88.5 MHZ and your car radio cannot receive it because you can't tune on this frequency, you are screwed up.
The same here, if your phone doesn't have 850 MHZ, or 1900, you won't receive 3G.
And besides, I'm totally chilled out, totally cool with your answer.
