This phone's specs spell doom for the competition, don't even start on the looks........
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2009cant wait till the 28 of May
SE RULEis that when the phone is being released?
SE had top top enginneers and do not know what happened to them - but I guess it would be time to rehire them.
SE had great potential - style and function.
I hope they turn around and improve on their production.
I have no idea what people hoping for on May 28?
No miracles will happen. Only announcement and with that SE will not make a dime.
˝Sony Ericsson is posting a huge 1st quarter 2009 loss of 36%.
Sony Ericsson is announcing its third straight quarterly loss. This time, in the amount of €358 million pre-tax (approximately $461 million USD). ˝
Half a billion USD!!!!
˝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.˝
Who will make the Idou by October?
with 1000mAh battery!
This phone will not be released this year or ever - that is my prediction.
Someone kkep saying that SE will make the Idou - but refuse to give any official source of this info!
Based on what I could ask! :)))
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!!!!!!

3.5mm jack something they can not manage for years now - see recent and old models!

SE announce models as a PR catch then by the time of release the phone is outdated!
The quality and reliability of the models also questionable!
yh i agree its all good but every sony iv had the jack breaks and doubt this fone will be any different
what the hell
i really dont understand why SONY ERICSSON take so long time to release a mobile phone
they announced their handset almost before 1 year,by the time they released their hand sets,other companies just put sony ericsoon behind in features and other specifications.
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2009It would be wise to wait for the release of Idou, then decide wether to get the Idou or Omnia ... moreYou are Nokia and Sony Ericsson lover?? You have many comments on the Samsung HD, you said Nokia N97 is better than the Samsung HD.

And not Sagem, plz don't say such things here, if you hate SE, go and write commments about another phone. Why write comments, if you hate SE? I does not have problem with you, but this is annoying!

SE fans had high expectation about the G900 and after a few months it became obvious that it was a poorly designed model - hardly sold.
Idou with its 1000mAh battery, 12mp camera, x internal memory will be another SE mistake.

Are you hired by Nokia or just a reckless fanboy? The Sony Ericsson & Idou fanboys know your negative arguments by now, stop hating and start loving at another forum I'd say.. Perhaps then they listen more to your early predictions.
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2009SE is planning 2 release W Series Idou & XW symbian... Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... moreits gonna be so cool if there is a w series idou too with 3.5mm jack, walkman 4.0 with shake control and.........
