this phone has NOTHING but a decent camera... abosolutely useless. The nokia n97 and Samsung Omnia HD have nothing to worry about. The market share is entirely their's. This phones doesn't have a single feature that makes you say "wow, i really want this". Just like the X1, sony will be EXTREMELY disappointed with the sales of this phone.
This forum is very entertaining. )
Guy try to make a difference between 27 and 30 fps - I guess he has no clue :)))
Of course his source is Indra - who left the forum and admitted that he was not sure about things and ...
As far as the lens quality . yes, Indra must know :)))
although only thing he said is that it must be good. Now that is very telling. :)))
HD recording - making claims but no source!
advantage of this phone?
It will be available for free with a contract jsut like the X1.
Unfortunately, the X1 is so lousy I had to take it back. I hope Idou will be more reliable.
But, I will not take it even as a free phone since it is a brick, but others may do.

Idou is outdated. SE is too slow to develop new models and when it is done the models are not too reliable.

Anonymous, 16 Apr 2009Please don't lie..hd 30 fps? I think obselete vga 30fps..exmor is the best? Why sony cybershot... moretry a se phone then come back
yes i tried a samsung and it disgust me (apart from the symbian ones like the innov8 best samsung ever)
nokia's are very impressive but i don't like this company phone style
lg are dumb just for fashion
htc are great but too expensive
and i like se because even if this brend phones hardly compete against nokia's phones i find them classe with nice aplěcation and the batery life is important for my life style
so the idou which bring nokia software to se is the phone that i was waiting for no need for hd if you can't use coretly and don't wory for the batery life se never disapoint in this point.

Why sony cybershot digital cam use carl zeiss? Oh poor fanboy..1000mah? It's useless phone,,no 3.5mm,it's obselete 2005 phone..poor se
Well,but the fact..idou specs very2 low compared to hd,,no 3.5mm,no hd recording..it's like obselete smartfone 3 years ago,,hd much2 worthy than the useless idou...bad quality material,bad software,bad camera,always defeated in comparison review..that's se...
Se always gives high price but no high performance,their best pda (x1) is nothing compared to simple useful omnia..and omnia is best seller pda phone from 2009 till now,x1? Nope people leave it...se rnd is in trouble..their a200 phones like twins,no innovative..just tuning up a200,their xperia very2 poor..and before the born of idou,it was defeated by hd according to general specs..nokia has much2 better rnd too,lg also beats se..that's se (bottomed technology,quality,quantity)
SE is the looser phone maker..
Hey all. :) Been a se fan for quite some time now and all i can say is sony ericsson rocks! Especially idou. 3.5inch touch screen phone with qhd display is simply awesome. After i've viewed the demo of the idou on youtube, i was simply thrilled by it's swiftness. Until now i haven't seen any phone which can respond as swift as it. Not even apple iphone and the pathetic omnia hd. Not only that, the 12.1 megapixels is simply dazzling. Now i can save some money from buying a 12 megapixels camera. :) It's thickness is just right for us mans. Though there are those exceptions who prefer to use a thin phone as they think they are a girl. How disgusting! It's also said to have exmor sensor which is said to be better than carl zeiss sensors. Wow. And the lens, according to this guy named indra, is suppose to be sony's finest lens so i guess the picture quality will turn out to be magnificent. But still, i do find it irritating that they still refuse to include a 3.5mm headjack. How ignorant to sony ericsson. But i heard that idou will be packed with a stereo bluetooth headphone so i guess this can be overlooked. :) Plus i heard it can record hd videos at 30fps making it better than the useless omnia hd which can only record at 27fps. How useless. Last but not least, it will be running on symbian making it sweet! Love you sony ericsson. But please, i request that you do some more innovations like putting in a 3.5mm headjack. Thanks. :)
i luv sony ericsson phones n have owned 4 of them so far my resent 1 is the w910. i will realy like 2 get 1 of those they r very pretty n i know they r the best from experience i will like 2 know the price if its ok

Look at your phone! Where is it manufactured? China! Don't be such a fool! If your phone is not faulty, then it shows that chinese are much more capable than those westerners! Look at europe, their economy isn't even growing yet but china's economy is already growing. This shows how incompetent europeans are.
