SE Idou.....SE Idon't! This phone reminds me of a man with an extraordinarily long nose or a woman with a huge arse! What is the point of having so many megapixels when the lens is too small to take advantage. Like the long nose/huge arse scenario all this does is waste space and attract attention. SE are hyping this phone for the gullible. The sensational 12MP claim is an attempt to blind people to the shortcomings of the phone eg the lens is too small to accurately use the 12MP. Secondly there is no optical zoom. It is a farce to pretend that this is a powerful camera when there is no optical zoom. Thirdly there is no hardware QWERTY so speed typing is difficult. Note that the world speed typing record for mobiles was achieved on a hardware QWERTY. Do people really want to type on a screen that will be laden with sweat and grease?? Fourthly the resolution of the screen is not high enough. Two years ago Toshiba G900 had an 800*480 pixel, three inch screen. SE Idou is 3.5 inches with far less resolution (640*360) Looking at pixel density:
Tosh G900;96711px/sq inch
SE Idou; 44016px/sq inch.
It is clear that Idou's screen is regressive and does NOT represent progress! SE Idou....SE Idon't!!!
struggling to think of any reason why the Idou is better than the omnia HD.
the only advantage this has is the xenon flash, but otherwise it seems to me the HD is a better unit.
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2009It can not be (yet) as good as a digital camera.
3: and image pro... moreidou spec sheet is good..
but, 12mp without good imaging processor? etc like n86? 28mm, f aperture..
what about videorec quality?
Im a big fans of soner..
soner at japan hav better spec sheet. exmor imaging engine, better walkman processor chip, better screen,etc..
wake up sony, idou is for worldwide, come on sony, dont make idou like a fool. at a glance, the spes sheet is good, but, after tested, it is not worth it n not good enough to compare to the others..
Moin, 14 Mar 2009This phone is gonna be so awesome!Hope the speed is fast. I need to change my P990i since I bought it in Nov 2006... Talk about lasting, Not a single phone offers what the 990 offer. Qwety, touch screen and keypad at the same time even up till today. :)
TFT 16 Million colors, come on Sony this should be OLED 16 Mill, nice specs but TFT screen is so disappointing.
kazen, 15 Mar 2009I liket this specification
but my question is ..
Is this phone camera would be perfect .. l... moreIt can not be (yet) as good as a digital camera.

You can get a panasonic small camera for 300-400 Euro and no comparison between them.
But, you can get a decent picture with a phone now but nothing like I would put in an album.
It will not replace my camera I take for vacations.
adam, 15 Mar 2009this phone will be a succee if it´s not overpriced,,the amin advantage over omnia hd in my ope... moreAdam :)
Look back SE track record. 500 Euro?
Thew lousy X1 was more!
By 2012 it will be 500 Euro but that time Samsung has a projector built in in their model --- oh sorry they already did :)
I liket this specification
but my question is ..
Is this phone camera would be perfect .. like digital camera
this phone will be a succee if it´s not overpriced,,the amin advantage over omnia hd in my openion is the smaller dimentions and better looking, but shouldn´t cost more than 500 euros,,,

indra, 15 Mar 2009idou will use SONY EXMOR sensor quality and features from SONY digital camera α900”“α... moreyes, the same with "α900" "α700" as stated on the Japanese site..
idou will have what Sony's digital SLR cameras "α900" "α700" have.
sony ericsson fones are the much better and more user friendly than alot of the fones out there it is no hyping it is just the fact
i been surfing the SE japan site.. and im totally convince that idou is a japan-made phone.
some of the features of the japanese phone are almost the same with idou..
and as you can see, the back part of S001 is the same with idou..
