Summary of my informations of idou :
Before I start it I will say…I don’t act as if I knew everything of idou final spec and my information is not my imagination coz I have many sources like official site and my friend who works in SE (internal).If I have an information I will tell you and if I haven’t I wont make a statement at here.My information is not 100% coz iam not god who knows everything but there was someone called my information as a clue of idou final spec. Yes that is right bro (thank you so much).if you don’t like my information you can skip this my comment freely.
1. What is the idou ?
Idou is the project name for the first phone model. The focus for this project and the promis behind it is “Unlimited entertainment”. It is much more than just picture and music functions, for instance games, social networks or complete video services says Sony Ericsson’s german product manager Steffen Grosch.
Idou encapsulates the future of mobile entertainment in the palm of your hand delivering visual communication like never before.
Capture moments, talk through pictures and share all your experiences like never before with the 12.1 megapixel camera, intuitive touch features and Xenon flash. Tap directly into your favourite videos and tracks with the full-touch media menu and feast your eyes on movies, TV-series and video clips in true 16:9 widescreen format. Based on what will become the Symbian Foundation operating system, thousands of applications are available online letting you install new applications and download exciting content from PlayNow™ to make the Idou truly yours. (official SE site)
2. Idou camera quality ?
For me, idou camera quality is great coz it has :
a. 12MP CMOS sensor from exmor (IMX060PQ) :
- Realizes high-definition image quality equivalent to compact digital still cameras
- Realizes high sensitivity and high S/N through its unique pixel structure and lens
- Sensitivity equivalent to 90mV in 1.75µm unit cell
- Column-Parallel A/D Conversion method" achieves high frame rates
(Sony says that, although they are extremely small, the new image sensors can deliver high-quality images. That’s thanks to several factors, including: a unique pixel structure, the implementation of a Cu process for fine interconnections, and Sony’s proprietary “Column-Parallel A/D Conversion technique”) and with 12MP camera you can get a more detail picture when you zoom it many times than 8MP.
Why am I sure that idou will use 12MP CMOS sensor from exmor (IMX060PQ) ?
Coz at the moment there is no other CMOS sensor has pixel as much as 12MP, it means the EXMOR CMOS sensor is the first and the highest CMOS sensor has pixel as much as 12MP on earth for phone and there was a news that SONY EXMOR announced that their 12MP EXMOR (IMX060PQ) will be used on SE cybershot phone in 2009 then in fact, now idou uses 12MP. You can see the news at :
b. uses a SONY new lens module (IU060F) for 12MP EXMOR CMOS sensor (IMX060PQ) :
- Industry's smallest and thinnest lens module*1, also equipped with lens, auto-focus and Interface functions
- Unique lens design to achieve high resolution
- "Piezo" type lens motor that reduces power consumption when shooting video images
- Equipped with 28mm wide-angle lens popular in digital cameras with F 2.8
This lens module will shipped in September so I think idou will be out around in October-november (Q4 2009)
c. Xenon flash
3. Idou video quality :
According to official SONY site that IMX060PQ can only record 720p@30Fps at least or 1080p@27Fps (Max) and there is no QVGA or VGA option for video in there so I think idou can record 720p video @ 30fps and there is a graphic chip to support a phone to record 720P 0r 1080p video, it is IT OMAP 3430( you can see the news about the idou graphic chip in wikipedia search for IT OMAP 3430.or in the graphic chip site so you can see that idou is on their list)
If idou can only record VGA video ? I will be very confused but don’t worry coz as I said before that resolution is not about quality of video but size. yes bigger resolution bigger size it means HD or full HD has bigger size than VGA size, it means if you ask about quality of those resolutions so vga video can be better quality than HD video but not in size of course. In other word, if idou can only record VGA video it must be the greatest VGA video quality on earth. Imagine! that idou vga video uses EXMOR CMOS sensor for high pixel quality + high lens module quality + a new OMAP 3430 + 16M color + video flash. Is VGA video expired or out to date ? I think not coz till now nokia still uses VGA video for their highend phone.
4. Idou music quality ? idou is cybershot phone and walkman phone into one so it will use a new walkman player series with mega bass, clear audio and clear bass.SONY knows their sound quality they will use their high headset quality for idou.
You can see an official idou prototype spec below :
•12.1 megapixel camera with Xenon Flash, auto focus
•3.5-inch touch screen with 640 x 320 resolution
•Turbo 3G (HSDPA or HSUPA)
•Micro M2 memory card slot
This spec is not specific and the rest of idou spec at gsmarena site is just gsmarena prediction not officially spec.1000 mah li-po ? gsmarena took it from Fony sk guy who borrowed the idou prototype that was used at MWC.they opened the cover of idou prototype to see a idou prototype battery capacity..the battery capacity will be increased on idou final spec like samsung HD did before.
Sorry for my long comment and thanks.GBU
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2009LG will have also 32gb in built memory.. an 8mp camera with Xenon+led flash (just like idou) ... moreOOHH!!!LG VIEWTY 2.....whats that gotta do? Is it powerful? How about the sound? How about other features...? U know more...? Please share some more...! No lies or brags allowed! Just plain straight features.....
max, 09 Apr 2009Well look at the battery capacity it ONLY has 1000 mah that sucks real big. Even nokia n97 ... moreHey, be careful what you say about SE, you won't wana bite your tongue....u know how it hurts.! You wana bet on the battery life! 100 bucks, how about that?
Is it a windows operating system or a symbian operating sustem please any one could confirm this to me.
max, 09 Apr 2009Well look at the battery capacity it ONLY has 1000 mah that sucks real big.
Even nokia n97 ... more the poor low end nokia n96 has only 950mAh battery. It's absolutely rubbish. how could be possible a 950mAh batt powering dual processor...?
max, 09 Apr 2009Well look at the battery capacity it ONLY has 1000 mah that sucks real big.
Even nokia n97 ... moreim sure this phone has a better baterylife than any other Nokia phone. you should learn more about SE phones and their batery.
THIS PHONE ROCKS, SE RULE
Well look at the battery capacity it ONLY has 1000 mah that sucks real big.
Even nokia n97 has 1500mah battery comepared to this low end.
One word this phone will have poor battery life its a shame when the specs of this phone is so future packed.
This year we will see WVGA screen phones from Sony Ericsson. I hope to see OLED screens too!
mjay9090, 09 Apr 2009why is there a lot of people here trying to belittle indra?
he's just trying to let everyb... moreit was not indra we have to concerned, indra is ok with his informations he shared that gave us more and more clues about this handset. The things we have to concern are the tiny creatures against him who always responded what indra's saying by no basic cellphone background.
7:36, 09 Apr 2009dont compare se with lg man. how dare u compare them. hahahaha.. lol..
why is that?
LG Arena is doing great.. its UI is WAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY MUCH better than X1..
let indra takes a rest for a while.. lol
after maybe 1 day, u all can attack him again. lol...

LG will have also 32gb in built memory..
an 8mp camera with Xenon+led flash (just like idou)
and it is called LG VIEWTY 2
they are all gonna be release in june!!
and idou? where the heck are you!
se give us the specs now!!
we need it!!
LG is just toooooooo fast.
see viewty 2?
A SUPERB PHONE..
maybe LG will release a 12mp earlier than SE!
why is there a lot of people here trying to belittle indra?
he's just trying to let everybody know what he knows about idou. Is that just a big crime?
Indra do you know something about the Koura, or Yurika codename phones? And if you know the internal memory of the Idou...Thanks a lot bro!!!
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2009BTW, Idou is designed by the same old incompetent people that designed the X1, G900, C902, W89... moreyou said :
If SE plans to release a phone with different specs than that phone is different - not this one!
So we are now talking about this one. Yes, they may cancel it.
How do you explain the 1000mAh battery? Just that is a total embarrassment - SE is totally out of control. They are loosing it."
Yes, idou spec at gsmarena is prototype spec.you are right but i would like to ask you..did SE give prototype spec to anyone officially ? no!
so why is there prototype spec at gsmarena? gsmarena guy just tried to list the prototype spec when they went to MWC then gsmarena show it to us at their site but you must know there was no official spec annoucement at MWC, that was why SE didnt allow us to use idou at MWC.
How do you explain the 1000mAh battery ?
gsmarena took the news from Fony.SK guy who tried to open the back cover of prototype idou to see prototype battery capacity.the news wasnt from SE officially.they just borrowed the idou prototype that was used at MWC, the prototype was not completed you can see the picture at Fony.sk site.till now there is no the first white paper so the unofficially prototype spec is too far from the truth.You cant result final product of idou with unofficially idou prototype spec coz you are not crazy, arent you?
but you did it. you are not fair.
i dont act as if i knew everything about idou and my information is not my imagination coz i have many sources like official site and my friend.if i have an information of idou i will tell you but if i havent i wont make a statement about idou feature at here.i tell you about idou what i have.
pls dont make a complain as if you knew final spec of idou.
you are so funny
you think the idou has the same quality with X1.you use x1 to push idou...what a shame
iam sure you know idou is a diff phone with x1 at all quality.
cant you see that idou has diff developer and manufacture with X1? HTC Taiwan manufactures X1 and X1 uses WM OS but idou is the first phone of entertaiment unlimited, it is diff with HTC and the idou OS is symbian, of course it is diff with WM os but iam very confused why you always try to compare idou quality with X1. are you crazy ?
x1 has delay problem coz there was HTC manufacture problem and the WM OS problem but idou has diff manufacture and OS so you cant compare idou with X1 at all.i think you just try to cover the facts and hide your weakness.
OMG!!im so tired to repeat the same comment again and again to you. are you stupid?
