Q&A for you :
Q. Idou has 12MP camera, does it mean idou has better picture quality than 8MP camera ?
A. Actually Mega Pixels is not about quality but size, 12MP is bigger size than 8MP so we can get more clearer detail picture when we zoom closer the picture than 8MP and also we can get a bigger wallpaper or photograph than 8MP.
Q. So how about with the picture quality ?
A. Picture Quality of this idou camera is great because Sony Ericsson use new CMOS sensor from EXMOR ( IMX060PQ, a 1/2.5 CMOS image sensor ) apparently, has the industry’s highest Megapixel count: 12.25 MP with highest quality right now.it can record 1080p @ 27 fps and 720p @ 30fps video too.
For more information, here :
Q. Do you mean Idou can record 1080p video (Full HD Video) ?
A. Yes. It can because the camera quality it self can record full HD video quality as long as the phone has processor speed and storage are also capable of the same speed.
Q. what do you think if Idou only has VGA video ?
A. it means SE doesn’t use the camera at full quality and don’t worry it must be highest VGA video quality in the world and doesn’t make idou to be more expensive than use HD Video.
Q. how about with the price ?
A. The new 12.25 MP sensor is equipped with autofocus and it will be available staring March 2009. Its price is said to be of 2,500 Japanese yen ($26), so the phones to include it should not be more expensive than the 8 Megapixel ones that are already on the market.
Q. How about with the music quality ?
A. Great, it has new walkman series quality with clear audio and clear bass are the winner in Europe music technology
Q. does it have 3.5 mm jack ?
A. I haven’t known it yet because SE hasn’t released their full spec about this phone, the full spec will be announced in march or april.If it has 3.5mm jack that is good but it doesn’t have it don’t worry SE has the highest earphone quality will be included in the package.SE knows their music quality so just relax.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970if you go to the sony ericsson overview that's on the left or any other review on this site you will see the most popular phones on the right and... what's at the top of these phones? yes!, the idou.
Farrokh, 26 Feb 2009i cant really understand u guys!
how can a 12mp pixel camera fool u like that? is it the only... morei dont need a digi cam because i can have this phone instead.
why does it have great image quality ?
in recent years, the convenience offered by cameras in mobile phones has driven an increase in their use, while demand for higher image quality has also continued to grow. In addition, as mobile phone designs have become more refined, and models become smaller and thinner, the need for further miniaturization in mobile phone camera technology has also increased. To meet these requirements, improvements in both image quality and sensor miniaturization must be achieved, but the more the shrinking process is continued, the more difficult it becomes to gather light into the sensor pixels, leading to the risk of image degradation resulting from reduced sensitivity and S/N levels.
The newly developed CMOS image sensor "IMX060PQ" leverages Sony's proprietary formation technology to deliver the industry's smallest unit cell size*1 (1.4µm), and the industry's highest pixel count*1 (12.25 effective megapixel resolution). The implementation of a Cu process that achieves extremely fine interconnections, together with the sensor's unique pixel structure and improvements in condensing efficiency have realized high sensitivity levels and a high S/N ratio, despite the industry's smallest*11.4µm size unit cell. Furthermore, Sony's proprietary "Column-Parallel A/D Conversion technique" minimizes image quality degradation cased by noise that arises during analog processing, while also enabling higher pixel count and frame rates (10 frames/s for "IMX060PQ" and 15frames/s for "IMX046PQ").
By enhancing its "Exmor™" range of CMOS image sensors, used in product lineups such as digital SLR cameras and high definition digital video cameras as well as mobile phones, Sony will aim to meet customer needs for advanced imaging performance comparable to dedicated compact digital still cameras in slimline, camera enabled mobile phones.
i cant really understand u guys!
how can a 12mp pixel camera fool u like that? is it the only thing u look for in a fone? get a digicam then...
take a look at other fones too b4 u say this whatever is the best whatever
have u ever seen Lg's Arene or SAMSUNG's Omnia HD?
i dont say this is a bad fone, i just say its not logical to base yr judgement solely on one feature..i think u guys are just a bit excited about the 12mpcamera
metalduster, 25 Feb 2009I haven't used this device-But i have in mind to use it only if i said only if--
1.Its touch ... moreu really think "no mobile fone can beat ifones touch screen"!
U R WRONG dude.
i dont know about this idou thing, but LG's new ARENA fone certainly does. just check its UI on utube.
n take a look at its specs at arena.lgmobile.uk to see what a beast it is...1
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2009it's S60 9.5 OS.its really good thing that it is powered by symbian os..
This phone will be the greatest of this year.
sure I will buy one when its released :)
Thank you Sony Ericsson
mgxT, 25 Feb 2009its symbian o.s so,put ur mind atease.SE is d new grand dada in town.OH . !
Se Surprised Me .!!!!
Braked Classic Design and Used Symbian OS !!
Is Surprised Me!
ppl is this the same symbian as used in the 5800?
Is it going to be more responsive then the I-Phone?
And if the guys at sony are reading this, I hope this set comes with an FM Transmitter preloaded in it, cause then this would be an ultimate entertainer!!!!!!!
The name is Japanese and means change
I haven't used this device-But i have in mind to use it only if i said only if--
1.Its touch screen is responsive like th iphone
2.It is a multimedia phone with decent battery
3.It is a client of youtube and plays all videos
4.It support a lot of softwares
5.it is like an ipod-i will carry a lot of music
6.sound which is very loud and have an equalizer
7.It is highly customizable
8.It has a browser as good as the safari on iphone
Having said all-do u seriously believe sony erricson has these all?I bet no mobile phone can beat iphone's touch screen anyway
indra, 25 Feb 2009iam happy that it has the best walkman series quality with clear audio and clear bass are the ... moreNow all we have to do is w8 for the price and maybe expect some other *goodies* on this phone which is awesome so far !!!
iam happy that it has the best walkman series quality with clear audio and clear bass are the winner in europe music technology and Xenon flash too...
maybe you guys know that there are many expensive cameras out there, they still use old ways, traditional tecnology on their camera and not efficient so use more component and big to get a good image quality, the result is the camera to be more expensive...more expensive it doesnt mean has better quality
nowadays Sony knows the problem, sony fixed and increased their camera quality to be more efficient with the highest image quality and not too expensive even can record full HD video plus cybershoot system.Sony says about this 12MP camera sensor that 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”.
in fact, sony cybershoot 10MP camera digital has the best image quality.Sony made the camera so of course they know their camera quality
