˝This is the usual Sony Ericsson announcement. After waiting for 1 year for the Experia, it was finally released with an outrageous price tag. In the meantime, the competition had overtaken it with features and better prices. The Idou specs look great. I am sure all other phones will look great too in 2011.˝
Except the specs are not so great.
12mp is not needed if the image quality is not up to it.
Currently this size of CMOS can not, CAN NOT, produce good quality 12mp image!!!!
(look at digital cameras with much larger sensor have trouble producing decent quality.
+++++ the lens this size can not work as well as in a digital camera!!!! Small cheap lens!)
By 2010, these specs are outdated!
SE loses money each quarter. Now there is a financial recession. It will hit the market end of this year.
SE may even close business for a while.
Japan is in a huge financial crisis. IT will get even worst.
600-700Euro phone will not have huge sales. Low sale volume does not make up for the tooling, advertisement etc.
The mean time Samsung HD, Nokia, Motorola etc. will take the potential buyers since they will release their models earlier.
(lets not argue whether they are better phones :))
It looks really bad for SE Idou!
Cool Heart, 14 May 2009I just forgotten one word "first" i mean: which no companies can make it FIRSTAnd how you know that SE can make it? Is it out? No, it's months away...
Everybody can announce 12mp phone, that doesn't mean they can make it or that it wont suck
Loving S.E til death, 14 May 2009I love sony ericsson phones but im not gonna buy this, its a peace of crap. I hate this phone,... moreOh, have u infected swine flu virus? Ha ha ha... U sound like a kid who need a bottle of milk. Ok, i dont mind and i'll feed u as much as u 1... :)

Cool Heart, 14 May 2009Read my comment carefully, I mean the Idou is the world's first 12mp camera phone, not others ... moreIdou is not the first 12MP phone, it's just the first announced... And even if it was first, it doesn't mean it's the best
You talk like the Idou is out now... Well it isn't, and by the time it is, there will be more announced 12MP phones, and some may even be out before Idou... And Nokia will have 8MP phones that will make better photos then all of those 12MP... Because it's not all about the megapixels, you stupid, it's about sensor and lens quality... And SE sucks in that, c905 is the proof
And Idou is like c905 all over again... it was the first announced 8MP phone, but INNOV8 was out sooner, and it had better pictures
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Read my comment carefully, I mean the Idou is the world's first 12mp camera phone, not others cant make that. Yeah, i know. But sony is strong enough 2 put its money in se if needed. And dont forget that we r in recession now, not only sony but many giant firms hit by the global downturn. And one more thing, u must be joking: the Idou it produced in SE's factory, not in sony factory.
SE 4 life, 14 May 2009@ Nick;
another BARBARIAN i've said that you calimed that you had N95 and every high end ph... morei do own more than one phone. i have a N95 and a samsung innov8. and by the way, im not boasting, but i do live in london and im not exactly drowning in poverty, so to suggest i cannot afford phones, thus why i slate them is a ludicrous prospect.
I am well capable of buying any phone that comes out, im just saying the samsung omnia HD is a far better phone.
HOw did you know that!!! are you a GOD? I don't think so!!! I want to see it first to believe it... OK!!! it's already 12pm lets talk another time... Gudnyt Father Preacher!!!

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970It's the way that se 1 2 show the world that they are the leader, 12mp which no companies can make it. 12mp is already the main feature of all, no need another small ones. And dont 4get that it is just a prototype. U'll see on 28 may.
