for 1500 USD I get a Chinese engineer to make a handmade one!
I guess SE did not get a company to manufacture the Idou, but outsourced it to India.
I guess Idou will have a 100% metal case - it is easier to hammer ít out than making hand-made plastic.
Of course, you suppose to order a 1500USD phone without specification :))) if it is an SE why not :)))

take it this is balls? i mean, i don't even live in the us... just curious.

Did I say that IDOU will be manufactured by segam? I thought my post was easy to understand. Now it seems you guys cant accept facts and simply trying to bypass it.
Somebody was saying SE didn't take help from Segam. I was correcting him only. My Post about segam is very specific and to-the-point. SE took Segam's help in entry-level phones. Not all phone. Hope it makes sense to you now.
hey.... i heard dat most of da sony ericssons phone are after da period of the warranty time.... they might find some faulti ... e.g black out.. missing contact or music file for a period of time then return back may be a couple of week or loss for ever.... but i reali like da fone.... n im scare dat might be happenin.... so should i buy this or not
Again, I have just opened the forum for XPERIA and it's on top mstL's very bad comments again and again with EXPERIA as shown below. God, all SE high-end phones is being bashed out this mstL. He is truly exerting all his efforts (24 hours/7 days a week)lambasting SE phones.
Most developed country this model is FREE with a cheap contract.
Unfortunately, it is still a bad deal:
- reception bad and unreliable
- OS slow
- battery is lousy
- construction is weak
Try it for a few days before you buy!!!!

you must know we come here coz we want to talk about idou exclusively not about SE phone ganerally, if you dont have a source that idou is made by sagem pls dont tell us about sagem at here....even idou is made by sagem i dont mind as long as the quality is good and many testers or reviewers will say idou is great phone so i still buy idou...and i wont go to omnia HD coz...
do you think you can result idou right now? dont forget your complain may be your weakness coz what do you think if you said idou is made by sagem and you always offense idou with it but there are many reviewers say idou is better than omnia hd? does it mean sagem is better than samsung? BE CAREFULL!!!
we cant result idou right now even idou is made by sagem, isnt it? wait 28may..be a patient person!!
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.

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).
