Sony Ericsson Aino review: I know fun

 

Sony Ericsson are on the move recently and the Aino is very much part of the agenda. But living in the shadow of the Satio and X10 is not much fun we guess. So, the Sony Ericsson Aino is keen to live a double life...

to the proprietary Sony Ericsson multimedia menu. We were pleasantly surprised with Opera Mini, which seemed to quite agree with the Aino touch system. Touchscreen navigation is all there and it performed very smoothly. This means touch controlled Java...

Sony Ericsson Aino review

 

Sony Ericsson has a knack for making beautiful multimedia-rich phones and it has certainly done so with the Sony Ericsson Aino. The Aino has a stunning display and a fantastic feature set that includes an 8.1-megapixel camera, a media player, Remote...

The Sony Ericsson Aino has a beautiful display, an intuitive interface, great multimedia features, Remote Play compatibility, Wi-Fi, GPS with Google Maps and geotagging, and good call quality. We also like that it comes with a desktop charging dock...

The Sony Ericsson Aino's touch-screen interface is limited to the media browser, it has no 3.5mm headset jack, and the navigation keys are a little small. Some may find the price tag a little steep.

The Sony Ericsson Aino's luscious display and multimedia offerings make it one of the better unlocked phones we've seen this year.

The Sony Ericsson Aino is a weird handset equipped with 3-inch screen that is touch-sensitive is just one, specific multimedia menu. You must be wondering if the whole idea is viable... Read on and you will soon find out...

Sony Ericsson Aino Preview

 

The Sony Ericsson Aino is a slider phone, sporting 3-inch screen that is touch-sensitive only when you get to working with multimedia files. We have seen something similar on both the LG Secret and KS360 (Neon) and we can´t say we are huge fans of the...

Sony Ericsson Aino Review

 

A review of one the most hyped media phones of 2009, the Sony Ericsson Aino. In today's review we take a look at the phone's legacy, design and unique double user interface.

The Sony Ericsson Aino, like the Samsung Monte, feels like a prototype rather than a properly tested and refined phone. No matter where the phone shines, something or other puts a dull sheen on the proceedings.

Sony Ericsson Aino Review

 

Sony Ericsson Aino is a prolific performer in the camera & multimedia segment achieving consistent scores across all the tests and truly stamped its authority, as one of the best high-end mobile phones to be tested.

Introduces Remote Play - support for PS3 console, Top notch multimedia performance, Excellent build quality

Lacks HD video recording capability, Limited touchscreen functionality, Definitely expensive

Sony Ericsson's Aino and its Remote Media Playback

 

Using a built-in application called Remote Play, it allows the PS3's user interface called XMB (XrossMediaBar) to appear on your Aino's 3-inch display screen so that you can access content stored on your PS3's hard drive remotely over a wireless LAN...

Sony Ericsson Aino Review

 

Not in this version of the Aino, but I am hoping that I’m giving Sony Ericsson a few ideas. Not that they aren’t already thinking what I’m thinking, I’m sure. Sony Ericsson’s Aino should be available in the fall, but so far, there is no word on a...

Sony Ericsson Aino

 

Aino owners can pull media from their consoles using "Remote Play", originally designed for use with the PSP. In some countries, the PlayTV service can also be used to receive TV via a PLAYSTATION 3.

Sony Ericsson Aino

 

Sony Ericsson isn't about to throw in the towel where cellphones are concerned, and they have underlined their intent of staying in the game with the Aino - the first touchscreen slider from Sony Ericsson that stores a number pad and navigation keys...

At RM 1,999 the Aino is a phone that we would recommend to those who want their entertainment on the go, due to the phone’s extensive multimedia abilities, and high end connectivity options. However, the (limited) touchscreen and PS3 connectivity feels...
