SE closes factories and even a before it was unable to manage the production of smartphones - it needs special facilities.
HTC helped before but it was a failure - see SE announcement: SE stated never let HTC to make any SE phones again.
Now the question is who will be the next partner?
No news yet!!!!!!
So it is impossible that the Idou will be available in October!!!!!!
Idou will not be out for at least 6 months!
By taht time:
1500mAh batteries will be the standard
Idou suppose to be a high-end phone.
The specs do not reflect that.

Idou is for 2010!!!!!
Nokia and Samsung uses 1500... moreSamsung Propel Pro IS a NEW Phone, it is only 2 months old, also is a 'smart phone', and they just put a 1000mAh in it. So how 'smart' was that? Nokia 5730 XpressMusic 1000mAh, again 2 months old. LG GD900 Crystal, 1000mAh, one month old.
So, you still have no point, everybody is using the same mAh in 'smart' and multimedia phones.
Next Se flagship model for 2011 will have a 1.8˝screen - monochrome!
Because once others used this technology.
SE goes retro!!! :)))
Idou thickness: 15-18mm
X2 will be 25mm!

Samsung propel pro uses a 1000mAh. LG Incite uses a 1030mAh, and Prada uses a 950 mAh.....so if everybody is using about the same battery must be that everybody else is just as dumb as Sony............that is the point that you are making is it not?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Big Deal!! Kodak and Motorola made a phone. So what you are talking about is everyday stuff in the phone company's, all you are doing is pointing only Sony and not everybody else.
Direwolf_65, 19 May 2009...............so is everybody else. Do everybody a favor and make a point for a change.this is a point for you:
1000mAh battery just demonstrate the incompetence of SE staff / management.
In the last few weeks there are several forums and articles question the rational of 1000mAh battery usage and SE just kept quite - no correction announcement, obviously they really planned to release the phone with a 1000mAh battery.

Also, you don't hear them saying anything about other companys plans about following Sony, in the fact of placing 12 mp's in there phones, now do you?
Anyway, here is an updated link about12 mp camera phones. Enjoy!!

ALL you need to do is read the specification sheet!
... moreI love my phones. I'd using them more than 2 years. They're all the good phones although they are uncomparable to the 2009 phones.
They are :
I hope you know what I mean...

whereas the idou camera is new...
nice try to run away
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!!!!!!!
sony ericsson, 19 May 2009Hey u crazy peoples, Sony Ericsson is the best mobile in the market, i dont say that nokia, sa... moreI wouldnt say that SE 905 is a great phone. In fact, SE 905 isnt a good phone at all (my oppinion) I've had lots of SE phons, but I was so dissapointed about the SE 905.
Cam isnt great at all, N82 is much better, and the whole keypad system isnt good.
Though i've had bad exp. with the 905, i'll look forward to this one. It looks interesting, and with a 12,1 mp cam, i'll be a killer cam phone. Lets just hope that the optic/lense inside the phone has been upgraded, cause else you cant use the 12,1 mp to a *bip*
Idou does not need to be badmouth :)))
ALL you need to do is read the specification sheet!
SE itself the source!
SE market share , profit margin, customer service tell everything.
Market share : none in smartphone market
Nokia: Se 15:1 Noki sells over 15 times more than SE.
SE does not make any profit!!! SE lost mone last quarter and before and before....
Just call them up, These guys gonna answer. YES, these who ´heeeeeeee´ and ´haaaaaaaa´ guys.
They must be good at their job. Yes, they are overpaid also. :))))))
They are the real winners!!!! :))))
I have SE since T39 and never have a bad experience, i think is the best phone, with the best software....simple and easy to use but with powerfull options to enjoy.
the first OLED television is SONY XEL - 1
hey why do you guys always fight about the screen type (capacitive or resisitive) i dont mind if idou uses resisitive screen coz idou screen is very responsive and the UI is very smooth and fast...you have no problem with it so what is your problem?
i have been using X1 for 5 months and x1 uses 1500mah "li-po" i watch vga video on it for around 45minutes or an hour then the battery is empty and how do you think if x1 uses HD video with 1500 mah "li ion" not lipo? how long can you watch the HD video?
mstl always say idou 1000mah is lousy, how do you know it? do you ever try or test it on idou?
if you buy omnia HD coz you want to watch hd video so i would like to ask you, do you have a media to watch video with HD resolution like HD lcd TV? if yes omnia hd will make you happy but if you dont have, your hd video is useless, yes you can transfer the video to pc but should you use hd video on pc whereas you can watch a great vga video on it? the price does matter hd video is more expensive than vga video...dont forget if you talk about video resolution it is not about video quality...there are many bad hd videos out there, sony HD video quality has diff quality with saamsung HD video...standard TV resolution is only wvga...
mstl always say idou 12mp is bad bla..bla..how do you know it ? where is your source? do you ever try the new sony 12mp cmos sensor?
you always offense our opinion then say se fans comments have no source but where is your source for each your complains and badmouth about idou?tell me your source for each your complain...!!!
