That’s right, folks. The Sony Ericsson Idou tou... moreI tell you what contradict these statements - SE past behavior!
X1 was lat almost a year. People - fans - for 6 mos day after day wrote when? when? When?
Then finally, it ways released in November. But it took about 6 mos to get release in different countries. For example, it took for ever in the US.
Se extremely irresponsible. Of course, 6-12 mos in cell phone business is a lifetime.
The technology changes so fast. And the newly released phone with 3MP camera generates lotś of questions.
(somebody just asked about it - see X1 forum)
I would not trust any SE PR announcement - They did it before and they failed to follow through.
Kal, 08 Apr 2009--"SE has already used 12MP camera for their phone and the next is samsung then LG..if 12MP is... moreyes, you are right that samsung announced 12MP camera phone at first before idou but that was just an announcement.there is no news about their 12MP cmos and lens module...in fact, 12MP exmors sensor has been out at first (in march, it is the highest pixel as much as 12MP at the moment) and already used on IDOU so we just wait the idou full spec till all feature of idou is done included the OS(this summer) it means idou is not only a concept phone but the full spec is almost done.the problem is SE doesnt want to annouce the full spec of idou too early from the release date.dont get me wrong i dont want to offense you bro...you can see the news at here :
Sony never bankrupt.. coz they many Making Product like sony vaio,sony picture,Sony Bravia,Sony walkman.sony Ericsson, sony Blu Ray,Sony PS3 o PS2,Sony Handy Cam,Cyber Shot.. and Sony the 1st product using blu Ray and HD Tv.. They Stay Cool.. Ha Ha Ha Ha...
Hello everyone. First off, I wish to apologize. Sorry Kal. It seems that I have misunderstood you. My deepest apology. And secondly, to those SE critics...How Many Times do you want to keep bringing up the issue on battery life and thickness??!! My god! Aren't you guys tired of going on with the same issue over and over again? Then let me ask you, besides these two weakness and the proprietary port(I don't think everyone hates it =D ), what other weaknesses does idou have??!! My goodness! Get real! This product isn't even out yet and here you are making tones and tones of useless assumption and fuss. I suggest that all of us wait patiently for the final product to hit the shelves and if it really fails us, then by all means, you may criticize it to your heart content. However, if it is the opposite, then I wish all of you critics would eat your word and disappear from this forum. Everything have it's pros and cons! How can you possibly compare a pre-released phone with another pre-released phone. That's absurd! I will be waiting for idou to be released as I believe that SE would be able to deliver an outstanding handset ^^
Thank you and seriously, no offense.
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2009probably u will buy 2009 product in 2010 or 2011, Lolnow, im using 1998 product from ericsson, the old one.. ill never change until 2090.. lol
Go onto mobileburn an they say the idou should be made available in October,but you do not if the recession might be hitting Sony Ericsson worst than first thought
I think we will see other two smartphones from Sony Ericsson, the Kokura and the Yurika!
Idou to be released this October? For sure!
That’s right, folks. The Sony Ericsson Idou touchscreen-wielding 12MP snapper uber phone will be released this October (or November at the latest), as confirmed by Sony Ericsson’s german product manager Steffen Grosch. It’ll run on the new Symbian OS, which is based on Nokia’s S60 and Sony Ericsson’s UIQ. As many of you know it’ll be the first phone from the new Entertainment Unlimited series. The Idou will not only focus on music and imaging, but on games, social networking and video as well.
What’s curious, though, is that according to Gustaf Brusewitz from Sony Ericsson Sweden, it’ll be released “sometime in the second half of the year”. Well, that certainly doesn’t contradict the first statement, does it?
indra, 08 Apr 2009actually, that is your problem not me..
you said :
"that can be 6 mos or more - that is a ... more--"SE has already used 12MP camera for their phone and the next is samsung then LG..if 12MP is out to date for you so how about with 8MP...next year SE will concern 20MP camera phone but the other company still concern in 12MP camera.."--
Sorry I cant agree with you on this. SE JUST ANNOUNCED that they will use 12mp in Idou. THEY SO FAR DIDN'T USE IT. It might happen at the end of the year. Right? Nokia's concern might be 8mp but as far I know Samsung was working on 8mp with 3x optical zoom and another 12mp way before IDOU was announced and it will be out before Q4. So lets not say that Samsung is following SE when that happens. If merely announcing a phone way ahead of its actual release means SE was first and the rest are following then that is absolutely wrong. SE did it in purpose to please their share holders. They have to get the share holders confidence. Samsung, Lg both are working on 12mp but unlike SE they didn't announce a concept phone, they will do that on time. And yes of cource there will be more megapixels next year. Everyone knows it. Thanks.
1st quarter result : SE lost about 360 billion...woohoo..SE goes bankrupt.. Idou can't fight omnia hd or n97!!
Sony also lost again..samsung rules the electronics war..even lg kicks sony..
Cybersh*t n walkman are nothing..idou? Omnia hd kicks idou before idou announced..bye2 sony..rest in peace
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2009that can be 6 mos or more - that is a lifetime in the cell phone business :)
By that time c... moreactually, that is your problem not me..
you said :
"that can be 6 mos or more - that is a lifetime in the cell phone business :)
By that time cell phones will have built projectors, or digital TV reception, or what ever"
that is why i said "fortunetly SE hasnt made their idou full spec officially so SE has a chance to upgrade idou ( i mean, you cant make a jugdement that idou will be expired by that time coz you dont know idou features in final spec whereas the other company still concern in 8MP camera phone and till now the features are not special for me and not far from idou.more feature more expensive. i dont think SE just make idou for their high end phone this year, there will be more than 2 phones and i dont thing you will buy an super expensive highend phone like samsung HD or idou, you just make a complain then push the other phone that you dont like)
The only thing people about this phone that bothers me is the size ( how will it feel in hand) and the battery life cause for the features of this phone and the size it should have 1500 battery but well will jus have to see. But I like it oh yeah and texing on this phone cause I havent seen any videos showing this phones texing, have any of you.
i mean, SE idou...

What we know for sure that other models do NOT sell.
(un... more1.i hate your smiles damn this smile you make at the end of every sentence it's like you wanna say see i'm smartass..no offense to you but i really hate it :)))
2. why you are here?? if you want quality and bla bla then why are you keep showing in this forum if you hate SE this much ?? i know you will say it's not hate it's fact bla bla..but what the big deal?? :))
3.if you are talking about that Idou have 15mm thickness then what about N97 it have 18.3 mm thickness ...i know you will say it's because of keyboard..but you are welling to put 18.3 mm in your pocket but it's not ok to put 15mm ? :))
4.you look for quality right ? then why are you still here posting ? this phone haven't been released yet then why you are keep saying SE this SE that..are we dumb enough not to read newspapers?? ..we know what's going on but there is ppl who is looking forward to this company no matter what's happening ..
5.things like C902 and other stuff you said about there quality .. first thing ...those who return there mobile don't know how to use it ..you know why i said that ? cause i have K800i and i'm using it for 3 years and still working fine and perfect..my friend had K800i for 3 months he changed it cause it had a problem ..this same friend had bought C905 and after 4 months of usage he said to me it had problems and he is thinking to return it..well i toke it from him and i have it for 2 month and i don't have any damn problem with C905 which is my friend's phone not MINE .. as you see don't look at the phones problem look at who is buying it..

I agree with you on this one. And, that's why I got sick of SE - I used to really like them. Oh, yeah. That and that stupid proprietary crap they insist on using all the time.

As far as smartphones Se is not even on the list - market share is none.
