Sony Ericsson Satio vs. Samsung Pixon12: 12MP shootout


A year's truce must've been enough and some heavyweight sharpshooters are called to arms again. In fact, there's never been a ceasefire in the battle for profit. But we're about to look at the future of cameraphones and the battle to take place is more...

Sony Ericsson Satio (Idou) review


The Sony Ericsson Satio might have just been a concept phone at Mobile World Congress , but it's certainly real now. Available as an unlocked phone through SonyStyle, the Satio is billed as an entertainment phone, and it's certainly got the chops to...

The Sony Ericsson Satio rocks a 12.1-megapixel camera with advanced editing options and video recording. The Symbian-based phone offers 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and full e-mail support. The Walkman-style music player is also a nice bonus.

The Satio uses Sony Ericsson's proprietary port for the USB connector and headset. The Web browser is a little clunky to navigate, and the Symbian user interface has some inconsistencies.

The Sony Ericsson Satio packs in a lot of multimedia power, particularly in the camera department, but it also has a number of annoyances. You can get a better overall experience with other handsets and for a lot less.

Sony Ericsson Satio Review


Sony Ericsson themselves admit that the Satio isn’t finished yet, but, with a quarter still to run until it’s expected to hit the market, they have plenty of time to polish out the flaws.  The OS as a whole will hopefully be less prone to sluggishness,...

Sony Ericsson Idou in silver


Pictures of silver colored Sony Ericsson Idou have surfaced. For the uninformed Sony Ericsson Idou is a full touchscreen phone with a 12 megapixel camera. It should hit stores by end of this year and if rumors are to be believed it would be October....

Sony Ericsson Idou smartphone boasts 12 megapixel camera


It's easy to see how the megapixel myth started. Consumers, faced with a dizzying array of on-the-market digicams with seemingly indistinguishable feature sets, wanted something as psychologically understandable as a GHz number to inform their...

Sony Ericsson Idou


Apart from the XPERIA X1, all previous Sony Ericsson smartphones have been based on the UIQ interface running on top of Symbian. Development of UIQ ceased last year, so the Idou will run the new operating system from the Symbian Foundation, meaning...
