BTW - SE is so incompetent that they can not even have a decent website.
Their philosophy is that customers should not know specs - we just fed by meaning less PR like Žentertainment unlimitedŽ
No specs, no performance evaluation, no reliability guidelines.
This Viewty clone is dead at birth.
who will manufacture the Idou?
HTC can not be. SE got burned with them.
All these reps can not point out an official ! announcement about the manufacture site.
This is a concept phone without merit.
SE got in trouble with Winmo now Symbian?
I doubt whether they can design a compatible hardware.
nick, 12 Apr 2009for everyday usability though, the idou is worse than the omnia HD. a shorter battery life,... moreI hope u dnt 4get that samsung omnia ba3 was lesser before nw and idou 1000mah was never official.and nt to forget that samsung buys batteries frm SONY.lol

K850i - Best 5MP (on line with N82)

Anonymous, 12 Apr 2009haha se fans are so stupid. i know, lets rate idou really high and n86 really low, even though... more nokia fan.the symbian u r talking abt is the open source and its free for all.SE got its UIQ in that mix mind you and ericsson sold its symbian shares intentionally to nokia,and to remind you that nokia didnt originate the symbian.they acquired it as they do everything in their portfolio.they cant manufacture their own screen needles to say its camera.nokia is a rich house of comedians.
Idou vs HD?
C'mon,stop the war..
Important news :
Idou will use Standard 12mp sensor like recent se cybershot phone,not exmor...1st exmor usage is on cybershot sony camera
Idou will use ST-NXP nomadik sTN 8820 ARM1176JF-S core clock at 533mhz (supports hd 720p video recording but has weaker fps compared to ti3430 of hd),and still below A8-cortex performance of hd in 3d rendering but also support opengl 2.0
HD final firmware will brings touchwiz 2.0 which has add-on widget capability n samsung said it will works very fast and fluidly (they said 50% speed improvement)

why would this be the best?!
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2009I'd love to know how everyone knows its such a great phone when it isn't even out yet...People who are praising the Idou are familiar with Sony Ericsson so they already know its going to be a good phone.
They know the 12MP will be the most superior in its class
They know that its User-Interface(OS) will be good
They know it will be good at Playing Music
They know it will have GOOD Battery Life
They know it will be a quality product!
Its a Sony Ericsson!
I'd love to know how everyone knows its such a great phone when it isn't even out yet...
Well, here it is. Undoubtedly the greatest camera phone ever released today. It is built by Sony-Ericsson and it deserved that admiration, because of its Cybershot insignia. Sony-Ericsson answered Samsung's 10 megapixel B-600 in high-end conformity.

Am in Tanzania rebublic how can i get this phone its fantastic is my choice
oh haha i take the last part back. it doesn't even seem like se will be able to make it any more. hahaha they can't even copy phones these days.
if this phone will be released, then when? this year looks doubtful so maybe next, or the year after?
what's the point in releasing specs of a phone so early? are se really that desperate to get some extra marketing?
haha se fans are so stupid. i know, lets rate idou really high and n86 really low, even though neither are out yet, and hope it somehow helps se beat nokia.
so what if its 12mp? unless you are viewing on, say, a hd tv that won't even make a difference. n86 has variable aperture which will allow much greater photos than a few extra mp's, yet another way forward by nokia that no doubt se will one day copy. oh look, idou uses symbian now. surprise.
what will you poorly copy next se?
