Outdated resistive TFT screen - drains high power, and the lousy 1000mAh will last about 5 min.
Contrary to Omnia HD OLED screen and 5.5HOURS of continues video playback capability!
Well, old vs. new tech!
I can tell you what is wrong with the 12mp camera sensor now!
Current technology for this size of sensor do not allow a 12mp resolution without serious compromise.
So you get an unnecessary resolution but the image quality goes down greatly.
Why SE does this then?
IT is a PR hype!
12mp resolution requires the sensor to be extremely crowded with light sensitive elements. This high density leads to voltage leakage, what causes image artifacts and degradation.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Deapite sounding like se hater .....i am not one...i want to see se where Nokia/apple are today BUT se kept on commiting one mistake after another and slipped behind moto/lg....
Isnt this blo0dy frustating for a se fan .....
What say MOHD?
i am not a looser.and idou screen is not capacitive its going to be age old resestive screen.
un like 5800 its far more responsive and quick acting....
but sadly ui of idou will not be in the league of superslick ,all conquring ,multitouched apple iphone....
how will idou overcome this single biggest hurdle remains to be seen....
mark my words"any touchscreen phone that hopes to succeed in market will have to match(if not beat) iphone.if it cant it will be another so called iphone killer killed by iphone itself."
if idou comes with resistive screen(which it will !)it most definatly will be a mega flop for sony........
12 mpx isnt going to help idou.
n97/omnia/arena/htc's hd and offcourse almighty iphone will defeat your puppy idou.
and i am an iphone hater.....
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Do you have any problem with people loving se? Incompetent imbecile. Why can't you respect other people's wishes. Everyone have their own admired handset. Not everybody like the same thing. Some people prefer nokia while others prefer se. Just go along with them and be more considerate about other's feelings.
I don't see any wrong in getting a 12.1megapixels cameraphone. What's wrong with it. It's because you don't like it doesn't mean all of us don't like it. Don't post your dictatorship here. Go somewhere else to do it. Why is 1.5cm a brick? Do you know that xenon occupies a lot of space? If no then read it up. You must let go of something in order to get something.
Lastly, i hope that you will refrain yourself from spitting out anymore comment and wait patiently for 8 more days. Thank you.
Please do not mention the 12mp camera.
Recent SE cameras perform really badly.
Who needs 12mp anyway?
Nobody! You will not make posters because the imagequality besides the resolution is horrible at that size. Distorted and color washout etc.
For normal size print A4 or 8.5x11 or less 8mp is already more than enough.
We had here a SE employee but he was unable to tell us any specific info - except bs.
The fact is SE running its business really badly:
1: not customer / not fan orientated
- no tech info
- no manufacture
- no 3.5 mm jack
2: producing lousy products lately
- X1 fiasco
- Idou 1000mAh battery - bad joke
- useless 12mp noisy camera
3: extremely slow release
- announce early, deliver late
smart PR and fool the fans - they get worked up but by the time of release the phone almost outdated.
(see X1) and it has bugs, and not reliable.
So the next 6 months the fans spend updating. By the time all updates are kinda fix the model it is totally outdated. And they are looking forward to get the next model.
After having a traumatic hell days with my SE C905. Im having a second thought of buying this phone when it come out of the market. I'll wait for the review first then I'll think hard. I dont want to happened again the bad experience I had with SE C905.
Hey u crazy peoples, Sony Ericsson is the best mobile in the market, i dont say that nokia, samsung or LG are bad, but every people has own think???
I use SE since T68 and now i have C905, wich is better than Samsung INNOV8 ( the camera is better) cuz Samsung is Symbian and has better application.
SO if u like Nokia or Samsung dont write here sony ericsson sucks or something like that???
Wait till 28 and u will see the beast???
And...excuse my rusty english. I made some keyboard errors but...it's readable.
In replay to all that have something with Anonymous
If you some1 who wants to suicide what do you do? Don't take action? Now...I don't think that Anonymous has something against Idou, but he was trying to be helpfull, any way some2 can, expressing hie worrys about this model wich...thanks to him...I'll think twice before recomaned it or!...to buy it. (good joke :|).
So, it's not like he is a fan or a troll but...He opened my eyes.
5800 user, 19 May 2009Hey what's your problem with SE? I am both a Nokia and a SE fan, and I know SE is NOT doing we... moreI don't understand the big deal about the 3.5 jack either. I have had wired earbuds on my phone before, and found it to be more of a problem when you are doing things. I have a stereo bluetooth head set and have found it to be very usefull. I also think that if you are going to have a nice phone, why not have a nice head set to go with it. Get a high tech phone, get high tech head set to go with it.Plug in ear phones are getting to be a bit 'retro' in this day and age.

SE keeps up the hype without substance!!!!
Re... moreMotorola has done the same thing with the Karma, so your point of 'no specs' is pointless. Have you used the phone? Not!!
So all your 'dissing' of the phone has no merit. It depends on the person, if they like the phone or not. So if you like the phone...Fine, get one! If not, go find one that you do and try to find SOMETHING to be happy about.
Anonymous, 19 May 2009re-announcement of Idou??????? :))))) SE keeps up the hype without substance!!!! Re... moreHey what's your problem with SE? I am both a Nokia and a SE fan, and I know SE is NOT doing well these day.... Tha's because I have a 5800. And please never post here anymore.... If you DO NOT LIKE SE, DO NOT buy its phones!!!! SE and its fans wont be happy or sad if don't buy any SE phone!! Please get out of here, at least ait till 28th of may, I know Idou doesn't have 3.5 mm Audio jack and regular USB and that's bad, but I know SE WILL change the battery. I beg YOU get out of this forume!
