this one would most likely have a resistive touchscreen instead of a capacitive one :(
SUNNY , 29 Mar 2009i like this phone, but the only draw back is when thay (the company sony) say this is a touch ... moreSunny,
Sony Ericsson never copy designs from other vendors, but they innovate and lead the way. iphone is nothing in front of this masterpiece.
Anonymous, 29 Mar 2009Do not worry, All SE phones are overpriced when they released. x1 1100 USD G900 700 USD ... moreur ideas and hallucinations will soon come to end when you will find the facts, u member of nok-sam club
The Idou is great and new wondering.
When will it be in singapore?
And beside black colours,
please try to have so other colours if not no people want to take colour black phone all the time when we have alot of phone which are black colour like nokia, samsung,LG,
And other hp model as well, try to have new colours like red, blue, pink, violet,silver,gold,much nicer colours and can also combine the market rate that which colour people bought the most than from there u can design another hp like that and design is the best,
but please dun design a new phone that like touch screen more like iphone much better looking people might consider buying the phone and the colours as well, and battery wise should be long life battery when we are use to listen music also everyday,every hours,everywhere we go also,
Do not worry, All SE phones are overpriced when they released.
x1 1100 USD
G900 700 USD
then 3 months later they offered free - if anybody wants trouble.
This phone is not released.
But the OS at least will be not WinMo.
The battery will be like to have some problems - Li-Po nothing but trouble for SE.
1000mAh is a joke - if it is true.
SE should make an announcement about it.
Usually takes a year after announcement of a new model to hit the market.
For 2010 this phone is outdated!
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2009Well the thing i like about this phone is the enormous screen and camera capabilities 12mp is ... moredont worry this phone last long `coz it`s battery is lithium-polymer which is better than lithium-ion
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970well we dont know nothing about its price yet but its rumoured that it will cost about 600 euro
i like this phone, but the only draw back is when thay (the company sony) say this is a touch screen why do they still have those keys on the phone? why they cant improve the design and make it more like i-phone.
Well the thing i like about this phone is the enormous screen and camera capabilities 12mp is a huge leap over other brands but this battery 1000mah can't be right i think... cause it's too small for such a device maybe i'm wrong SE have proven to have great batteries for standby and talk time.Also i think it will be realeased in late 2009 probably september for XPERIA they waited too long too bad they don't make the right conclusions about their next great thing....
steveg, 28 Mar 2009Idou comes from the Greek word meaning Look! or Behold! And this phone really got my attentio... more Idou also (or actually) comes from Japanese word means 'movement' or 'change', while the word Hikaru of W995 means 'to shine', from the female form of Hikari means 'light'
i`m a nokia lover but this new sony takes my fancy compared to the new n97 thats due out about the same time
Idou comes from the Greek word meaning Look! or Behold! And this phone really got my attention with its specs and features! WOW!!! I hope the processor and hardware will be able to keep up with the high demanding apps on the phone.
