I hope they'll make a better job with the touch screen than on a previous phones.
For example a few days ago I accidentally broke the screen of my W960. It was in my front pocket (and I'm not the only one - a lot of people broke theirs too, without even dropping it or something like that).
So hopefully this one will have a stronger screen and a multi touch will be nice :)
Anonymous, 25 May 2009they don't need help from sagem for any kind of R&D they only use them for manufacturing there... moreOh really? For those entry level phone SE didn't do any R&D just to inform you. They simply did QA. They benefited from the technical know-how and the engineering capacity of Sagem. As part of the agreement Sagem licensed certain hardware and software technologies to Sony Ericsson. It's NOT the other way around. WAKE UP. It was NOT just manufacturing. They even planned for joint R&D. SE didn't have enough know-how in entry-level phone. That's why they choose Segam. There is no shame in accepting that fact.
All these SE rep fans keep saying x days and the new age will come and all specs will be announced....
I bet SE will NOT release all the specs on Idou!!!
NOT NOT NOT!!!!!!!
for example the SAR value will NOT be released!!!!!!
It is basic tech info and required by law! So I think it will not be released - and that means SEwill not release all specs again!!!!!
After the second announcement(official second announcement) we will still not know all specs!
So, the bs that in 2 days will will know everything about Idou is just bull.
And they been doing this since February , 3 months!!!!!!!
BTW, HTC not only manufactured X1 but also helped to develop it!!!!!
MAnufacturing is not easy:
see X1 fiasco with HTC.
even HTC got into trouble!
X1 had so much trouble that it was not funny even Nokia fans.
Nokia, Samsung etc. have their own factory all over the World! For example in Euro. Not only Asia does the manufacturing!
SOf course SE needed technology - these SE fans can not even use google, keep denying the fact that SE got technology from SAGEM!
All these reps do not read the industry publications at least they should able to google :)))
Kal, 25 May 2009Saying SE doesn't need help from anyone is absolutely wrong. They needed help with their first... morethey don't need help from sagem for any kind of R&D they only use them for manufacturing there is ample knowhow in SE, just find the patents that company has for the technology and innovations sagem is used sometimes for low end phones to manufacture the phones cheaper and for WM they had used HTC to manufacture not to Develop any thing, understand there is a difference in Research and development and manufacturing, any dam company can manufacture based on the know how give.
Anonymous, 25 May 2009why u bulls**t ppl need to know manufacturer, how does it matter, what is important is who is ... moreSaying SE doesn't need help from anyone is absolutely wrong. They needed help with their first winmo phone. mstL's statement about Segam is not wrong either. It's not a secret that SE indeed needed help in their entry-level phones and they turned to Segam for their technology know-how. One can Google it and find more. There is no need to provide source for that.
Keep fighting. 2 more days and I will join in.
wow! if this baby had a qwerty keyboard, i'd sell my house to buy one
Anonymous, 25 May 2009I think after Sagem SE should get some technology from Alcatel.
... morewhy u bulls**t ppl need to know manufacturer, how does it matter, what is important is who is doing R&D for design, development, test validation of hardware and software and industrial design of the phone. It is irrelevant where it is manufactured.
other thing alcatel doesn't make phones they are into infrastructure business joint venture with lucent and they are going down in business.
Sony ericsson doesn't need any help from any one except Sony and Ericsson who are its parents. Don't forget Sony Ericsson has Sony and Ericsson, sony known for brand and quality and Ericsson know for technology with over more than 100 years into wireless field like no other company.
if you do not know anything about wirelss field, don't bring filthy words in this forum.
I think after Sagem SE should get some technology from Alcatel.
˝ Sagem will license certain hardware and software technologies related to mobile phone platforms to Sony Ericsson while an Original Developer Manufacturer agreement will see Sagem Communication provide Sony Ericsson with a number of Sony Ericsson branded mobile phones. ˝
I am sure Alcatel could help Se to get back to track and make some great phones.
I guess Sagem helped alot but SE needs more!
May be Lacatel could make Idou.
(since no manufacturer is announced yet)
I tell you what is magic:
- SE is still in business after being in red for so long. Loss, loss, loss, loss
I hope they come beck something revolutionary - the market needs SE. Motorola also in trouble!
But at least they had the V3!
SE had nothing forlong time.
K850 was good but N82 came shortly and wiped it out easily. (see sales figures!)
but K850 was good. Nothing since!
Just for comparison?: Samsung sold a ton of Omnia and Omnia HD will be the same.
Nokia sold 10 times more unit as Samsung as far as smart phones. SE is not even on the map of smart phones market. X1 was a disaster!
3.5 mm jack!
high SAR values
TFT resistive screen
no USB charger
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970same with me too.i dnt care about 3.5mm jack but i care about wot the fans want and need in thier phones cos,they paid higher for that device.ST-ERICSSON has the best hardware in the market and i would love them to display thier strenght here and give the fans wot they want please.
Yes, SE so innovative that they are unable to manage a 3.5mm jack or a USB charger!
I am sure they will announce something very important shortly like:
- We got it. We promise the 3.5mm jack for the next generation of phones by 2011.
So we can connect real decent earphones (like Shure).
Anonymous, 25 May 2009All in all i think its an awesome phone, and i am a sony ericsson fan from the start, but i do... morepersonally,i think those icons are far beta than nokia,samsung and lg icons.if they dnt have a beta 1,they could easily contract an italian designer for that in the nxt firmware update.
I mean :You do not realize there are 100W amplifiers for 10000 USD or Euro.
Leigh, 25 May 2009i'm very much looking forward for this phone. how much do you think this will cost? i'm comp... moreWhy?
Probably, you have a 400W stereo You got it from from a cheap store because it is 400W.
You do not realize there are 100W amplifiers for 10000 SD.
12mp provides resolution at best but not quality.
The same technology with 8mp would produce much better quality but less PR.
Did you ever print an 8mp and 12mp image?
No! You never!
You would know that at normal size - less than a wall poster - you do not any see difference in the resolution.
Ignorance is blessing for some. :)))
i'm very much looking forward for this phone. how much do you think this will cost? i'm comparing this with the new Nokia N97. But Idou having a 12mp cybershot camera is a lot more exciting than the N97..
All in all i think its an awesome phone, and i am a sony ericsson fan from the start, but i do not like the icons for the menu they look horrible to me...how could you have such a beautiful phone with top notch features and image quality and have such basic ugly icons for the menu...i love sony ericsson and sony on a whole all i buy is sony products but those icons need to go
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Entertainment unlimited for a cell phone, not for your house, talk about making a mountian out of a mole hill....... We have already went over the 1000mAh, they are making smartphones with that in there phone, so you making a big deal of it is pointless. What you dont understand is that they are making things that dont require alot of power to work like they used to, try keeping up with the times. So when you post, dont make up stuff, it just shows everybody what kind of person you are, and it is not a very good one.
DarK, 24 May 2009this phone need only 3 things and it will be really damn nice phone. 3.5mm TV-out replac... moreI dont understand why people want to have a 3.5mm jack. If you are going to have a nice phone get a nice bluetooh stereo headset to go with it. You have a wirless phone, at least get a wireless headset. I have 2 of them, and you could not get me to go back to a wired headset. Besides, a 3.5mm hole is there for you to get crap down in your phone to mess it up.
