regarding battery, the omnia HD will have a far better battery life...
well the screen may be 0.2" bigger, but it is AMOLED. This means there is no backlight required which is the most power consuming feature on a screen.
the idou will obviously need one for it's tft screen.
and i reckon because samsung have made s60 phones before, they'll be more prepared, regarding the firmware this is, and it will be more energy efficient.
and of course, the battery is 1.5 times bigger...
Before SE Idou hit our shelves, it will be obsolete already. Palm Pre, iPhone 2009 and Omnia HD will be alredy out and making waves. If I were SE, I would just not realeas this model, becuase I bet this will be delayed and delayed and delayed... no point already :-(
SE will suffer the same fate as Motorola. SE design are old fashioned and no new innovation at all. Im so sad because I am an SE fan since 1999, but now for more than 2 years that I dont see new things from SE, I am so saddened. While Samsung and LG are stepping up with new design and innovation, SE keep on coming up with recycled design. Soon SE will be history in mobile phone world, they will be obsolete. Same as what happened to Alcatel and Siemens. :-(
This is just my opinion guys.
about the post on reliability...
i definitely agree and have avoided SE since my k800 and gfs s500 died for no reason and hasn't been able to fix.(tried a lot of places)
i always guessed that their smartphones would be more reliable. i haven't tried their smartphones though but i have some hope for this one
Impressive features but its a Sony Ericsson and reliability will be a huge problem, case in point, the C905.
Unless SE can sort out the reliability issues prevelant on all their handsets they will continue to lose market share as they have over the last few years.
If this phone is fault free then just maybe SE won't be the new Motorola

some one know ??
HD recording wouldn't be a part of my everyday life. So why would I even care...W995 would be a better choice. Idou? If I have an extra dough.
hey hey hey...
dont just debate about idou vs hd...
lets debate a new topic..
idou vs omnia vs pixon vs n97 vs gc900 viewty...
Anonymous, 13 May 2009kal...forget about the company ...forget that you are a samsung fan...then i would to ask you,... moreoh god. you at least have to admit that most people these days have a HDTV. so HD recording will be relevant to most.
and as far as pricing goes, initially omnia HD will be more expensive than idou, BUT it is being released BEFORE idou, so by the time idou is released they will probably be the same price and i actually expect omnia hd may be cheaper (since it will have been out for longer, its logical). SE phones are NOT great value for the features you get, so we can all expect idou to be very pricy for what it is. obviously i am guessing like you, but this is very likely.
kal...forget about the company ...forget that you are a samsung fan...then i would to ask you, if you are a poor guy who dont have hd tv or even pc...which phone will you buy? omnia hd or idou ?
if idou uses vga video it doesnt mean the video quality is bad...it is just about video resolution not about video quality...sony hd video has diff quality with samsung hd video....
kal, 13 May 2009LOL. Go ahead and say whatever you want to justify idou's low capacity battery, but your logic... moredont look at the battery number but how much the features will consume the battery power then compare it with the battery capacity
do you mean vga video is more expensive than HD video ?
do you mean vga video cunsume more battery power than HD video ?
do you mean print 12Mp picture is more expensive than buy HD TV ?
do you mean you can watch HD video on non HD screen resolution at full resolution quality ?
do you mean 1000Mah li po is too small to operate VGA video so you will say 1500mah "li ion" is enough to operate HD video ?
many people buy omnia HD coz they want enjoy a video in HD resolution but if they dont have a media to watch that resolution like HD TV so it will be useless...their hope never come true...
HD video on non HD resolution screen is not relevan, it is too expensive and useless i prefer buy vga video then watch it on non HD TV...cheaper than HD TV
yes..yes..yes you can transfer it to pc bla..bla..but should i use HD video on PC whereas i can watch a good VGA video on it?
so you will say idou will be more expensive than omnia HD ?
you are dreaming..
dont forget i just made an assumtion if idou retail version use 1000mah li po and i hope real retail version is more than that..
of course the price does matter...not at all people can buy an expensive phone..so i said idou is their alternative..
what's wrong with that ?
yes i know you are a rich man but not at all people like you
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970The most expensive, and the best is the W995, is a Walkman device, has a bigger screen, ha Wifi, AGPS, very good camera. The G705 is cheaper, and is better than the W705. The W715 is for Vodafone only. The G705 has a 3.2 Mp camera, and has Wifi.
