It's not a surprise and yet again lets wait for 2 weeks for "more entertainment unlimited" and "idou's fullspecs" and more upcomings phones.
Moreover Idou will be one of 2009 greatest phones for sure.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970this idou focused on ultimate entertainment not on camera.if u asses se official statement u will find thr was no word about exmor,much of says r about multimedia,so this is must buy for those who love to use thr mobile as a source of entertainment n access multimedia.but still it will be hard to won a crown rest of other multimedia phone cz nxt to idou thr is boost frm samsung n lg n it is known to all camera crown goes to N86......
˝ Sagem will license certain hardware and software technologies related to mobile phone platforms to Sony Ericsson while an Original Developer Manufacturer agreement will see Sagem Communication provide Sony Ericsson with a number of Sony Ericsson branded mobile phones. ˝
SE needs help from SAGEM !!!! :))))
You can not handle the truth? :))))
˝The company plans cutting down approximately €400 million (approximately $516 million USD) in expenses, which will also result in cutting 2,000 people from their jobs.˝
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!!!!!!!
I am not the only one thinks that 1000mAh battery was a bad joke for this model.
It was and is SE responsibility to clarify it if it was a mistake - but they (SE) failed to do so, although it was questioned all over the net: forums articles etc.
I can only think SE really want to release this model with a 1000mAh battery!
Now that is something you can protest about - :)))))))
what kind of game is se playing on with idou? everything is still mysterious. this is absolutely will not giving se any good credit of what they've done.
se, you had loosing much-much-much-much money in the last Q. but for now you are playing trial n error to your flagship. how come? or maybe idou is just a phone for you, like the others se? wake up you all guys, unless you are digging your own grave! you are writing your epitaph! i hate to say that but i'm telling you the truth.
SAM, 26 Apr 2009Hi guys, Somebody tell me whether this phone may be or will be having a Dual Sim or Twin Sim.Is there anybody with insider information to this phone?
of course, it will be CCCCCCCMMMMMMOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSS..
but not exmor...
exmor cmos is not only for 12 mp. but also 5 and 8..
dont relate it so complicated... dont think that to have a 12 mp we can only use exmor...
why havent u reply me yet?? lol... u havent open internet or being a silly girl?? lol.. peace..
Oh it looks amazing! I will be hanging out for this one.
I have always loved Sony Ericsson's because they have an excellent menue set up. I like the way they type messages. Now I'm not "up-to-smarts" with mobile phones these days, but the OS, is it or will it be the same as the Samsung Omnia?
(Sort of looks like a mini Microsoft Windows, horrible to type messages on, really poor Folder set up, you can't find photos or music on it, a whole bunch of unnecessary programs, and you need a "pen" to use it because the little "OK" (button/on the touchscreen) is TINY and you can't use your finger tips like you can on the Iphone.) Anyway, so I was asking if it will be like that? I hope that Ericsson has it's own touch screen Menue layout and "Create new message" screen. =]
I just had a look at the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1, and yes, it has the HORRIBLE Windows OS. God it's bad. Poor response time (slow when typing messages), hard to find anything (pictures that have been bluetoothed, transfered via USB etc. They're scattered into folders through the phone) You have to use that stupid stick unlike the Iphone, and I'm very disappointed.
When the Iphone brings out something bigger and better I think I'll be going with that instead. Since they're the first to make the trend, they'll be the first making the upgrades.
whatever IDOU will be, i still love it. i love it in the way it is. love doesn't have buy.
Very nice phone - at the moment my secund in choice after Samsung I7500. The Samsung runs Android, has a nicer design and can be operated better with one hand, and has a slimmer body. Tradeoffs are the bigger screen and 12.1 MP camera, but hey, cant get it all :)
if they stick with this spec... this is far away form ifone killller....
or maybe they dont make it as an ifone killer..
it uses exmor
(reallly, i dont know whther it was real sample photo or not, but it sucks)
it uses omap 3440
it leaves the 1120 mah, change to at least 1200
(coz 1120 doesnt make sense.. whts the diff between 1120 and 1100????? -- the gap is only 20, wtf is that for???)
It will killlllllll ifone.. coz i think this idou price will be quite affordable..
hd?? fhuk it up, use qvga 30fps is ok..
20 GB is too much ad will make the phone more expensive i think 8 GB with MICRO SD support up to 32 GB is enough and better that phone have 3.5 jack so it could be an I-phone killer
Kal, 05 May 200920gb is absurd. After 1/2gb the standard for higher capacity is @ 8gb multiplication...8gb,... moreYes, 20 GB is absurd, the internal memory will be 8, or 16 Gb, this is my opinion. If will be 32, will take the crown from the N97!!!Sony Ericsson 4ever!!!
12.1mp avg camera?
1GB internal memory?
no (more) BST-41?
That's alright, they'll put those things next time.
Idou is just the beginning; perhaps the beginning of 'entertainment unlimited' era, or maybe the beginning of resurgence of se, or maybe this is the end of an era.
