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.

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.

Just to clarify some earlier thought about 4G.
Mobile telecommunications standards:
GPRS • EDGE (EGPRS) • EDGE Evolution • CSD • HSCSD
HSPA • HSDPA • HSUPA • HSPA+ • UMTS-TDD • UTRA-TDD HCR • UTRA-TDD LCR • UMTS-FDD • Super-Charged
3GPP Rel. 8 (Pre-4G)
LTE Advanced (4G)
EV-DO • UMB
Pre Cellular (0G)
PTT • MTS • IMTS • AMTS • OLT • MTD • Autotel/PALM • ARP
NMT • Hicap • CDPD • Mobitex • DataTAC
iDEN • PDC • CSD • PHS • WiDEN
iBurst • HiperMAN • WiMAX • WiBro • GAN (UMA)
Cellular • GSM • UMTS • PCS • SMR
Note that WiMAX is pre-4G, while LTE is 4G.
So anyone saying WiMAX is 4G, please stop.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970thats the essence of the tagline dude, u will get the feel of unlimited awesome experience with limited things never got before from any phone before.Now thats what is called magic or sheer "Entertainment Unlimited"

but all with the unlimited thrill of a high resolution camera,and walkman and cybershot come and innovate u to a new experience..............
that to in touch and symbian os new series.........
you just need to take things in positive way brother,as far as battry backup,i say no phone is perfect! but this is atleast an inprovement,despite of there very bad condition in market thats a brave step! atleast u need to respect that.......
SE really decided on the 1000mAh battery and a lousy 12mp camera.
1600mAh battery and a 8mp camera would have been better but that case nothing to drag about.
A few su..ckers will fall for the 12mp camera.
The sensor size of camera phones are so small that the quality of a digital camera so much better since the sensor size much larger and the electronics much more advanced.
The DLRs are has so much bigger sensors that it is pointless to compare.
The compact digital cameras already have much larges sensors and lenses and that itself enough to outperform the phones. The much more advances electronics just increases the difference.
A relatively good compact camera is about 400-500 USD.
(DSLR 1500 and up)
You pay for performance and quality when you get a digital camera - a phone will not produce similar quality.
That is the reason that today a 12mp phone camera is pointless. Much better to have a 5-8mp phone with great lens and less dense sensor - better quality.
12mp sensor more dense producing more noise and artifact with out the benefit of useful resolution.
For normal size print (8.5x11 or A4 - people rarely print this size or larger) 5-8mp is more than enough resolution.
12mp is just a PR/ / SALES gimmick without merit - actually it has disadvantage since with the same technology an 8mp sensor would produce a much better image!!!!!!!
This will be an amazing phone,but while people it's waiting to november-december,in Japan u can see 10mp phones,like SH06A,with good quality lens,16gb of internal memory,3.3" touch screen...
this phone need only 3 things and it will be really damn nice phone.
replace the old charger port with usb port for charging
if they did that to IDOU then this phone will hit the market soo high and soo nice...
i don't care if there won't be Exmor in IDOU as long they will put VGA or D1 video record in it i'm satisfied.
if SE planning to put Exmor in there cell phones then i guess they will start putting it in C line before putting in any other category cause C line is about all about Camera but Ultimate Entertainment is about other things then a Camera so i hope to see new things in Idou ^_^ can't wait for 28th...
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I believe it will be around RM2150-2500. But rest assure, quality is ensured. I think you will need to buy another plug as the voltage output is different. You can buy that plug in aus but i doubt you will find it in malaysia. You are also looking forward to purchase this phone is it? Same here. Can't wait for it to be released this october. =)
Actually idou will be using a platform better than s60 v5. That platform will only be completed and fully functional by this year end. That's why idou will be released late. But still, i am hoping that idou will be a one of a kind music player and compact digitat camera. That way, they will be able to fulfill sony's motto"like.no.other" =)
7:36, 24 May 2009damn right..
actually, what makes se will go down n down is the price ONLY..
w980 n w90... moreas we say: "quality costs" but for me one thing I dont like about SE is that they announce their phones so early so it takes too much time for them to build that phone, and sometimes Samsung, Nokia and LG are able to copy the specs and design and come out with the same phone before SE releases it.
I just hope SE will come out with new technology such Nvidia Tegraor, Omap 4, WM 7 or Symbian 9.5 and other new things
