Should be, as it's just been officially presented there!

It'll be less than the Nokia 6600. In an Italian web-store I came accross, the N6600 is €569 compared to the Sendo X's price of €529, so I think it's safe to expect it to be a little bit cheaper.

How come a phone designed and made in the UK takes so long to come out here?

Your right I misread British manufacturer as British manufactured :) , still doesn’t explain why we get it so late.

I should think that they're simply selling the first batches to whomever ordered them first. First come, first serve.

The Sendo will be out first in Italy with brand TIM. Probably for Christmas

One thing that you might want to note is that the UK might have imposed regulations on mobiles. As it says on the Sendo X website:

"The Sendo X phone has not yet received CE approval and has not yet been authorised as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This product is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, unless and until authorisation is obtained. Other validations and approval are also still pending."

This might be one of the reasons for such late release.

Probably will be already available this week on Italian market. Some friends from TIM told me the distribution will start 13/14 December.. :D :D

What exactly is TIM then?

Merovingio
09-12-2003, 11:28 PM
TIM aka: Telecom Italia Mobile

Is an italian Mobile service provider (the biggest in Italy).
TIM has a world-preview contract for the Sendo X and will be the first brand to release this model.
It's for this reason that almost on every photo you can find online you see the TIM logo.

According to TIM infos, the Sendo X will be out in max one week.

So you reckon they'll have really messed with the interface ala Voda and the T610?

Or you think it'll just be, say, a TIM background/theme?

Was there a brightness setting on the phone? Maybe it can be turned up?

I don't want anything to be wrong with my dream phone :D

EDIT: Oh and about the buttons? How did they feel? Are they spongy? My T610 has spongy buttons I dont like them that much. I prefered my Nokia 6510, that had awesome buttons

I hope it's different, not sure 'cause I have tested for just few seconds, so not really tested.. I think TIM will not make deep changes to the interface, just a theme in menu's and background.. probably on the SendoNow screen that can be modify..

For what I have seen the Sendo X it's simply great:cool: :D :cool: , the only bad thing (I'm sorry, here is a problem..:( ) is the brightness.. it's not very low, you can read everything, but it's lower than nokia 6600 screen. Not terrible however... I don't know if there is a brightness adjustment, I hope I'll get one X in next few days so I'll post a complete test! :D

I have read the manual and you can change the following:

General Settings:
Contrast
Colour pallette

Profile Settings:
Backlight Brightness
Backlight Timeout
Backlight Movie Brightness (game/video playback)

Searching for a shop that could export a Sendo X from Italy to Germany, I found the following online shop: http://www.telefonomania.it/eng/default.asp?inf_src=http://www.telefonomania.it/eng/agenzia.htm.

It offers shipping of TIM mobiles to almost any country.

Can anybody confirm if this is a serious shop (seems to be a TIM centro in Italy)?

Good spot buddy!
It seems to have the sx1 and the sendo x.
It already has a price for the sx1 but not for the sendo yet.

www.expansys.com

and there is no price...

They'll be importing it from Italy to USA though

guest guest
10-12-2003, 05:29 PM

chrigu
11-12-2003, 12:28 AM

I think expansys will be my best bet, straight from Italy to the UK :D

I hope expansys manage to get hold of some original Sendo ones though, I don't fancy one of them TIM versions :mad:

chrigu
11-12-2003, 02:08 AM
i really don't care if there's the sendo or the tim emblem on it... the main thing is the phone... :D
if u don't like the tim emblem u may can scratch it away...
:rolleyes: or maybe its just a sticker... we'll see......

guest guest
11-12-2003, 05:54 AM

Sendo cant wait!
It sounds like the holy grail of smartphones. Hope Sendo keep producing loads of cool addons for it. Hope it is bought by almost everyone. Hope it is easy to develop for. Hope most if not all existing software is compatible with it. Sendo please answer my hopes and dreams!!!:confused:

It's using the same base Symbian OS as the 3650 (v6.1) albeit with a few Sendo additions. So all programs that work on 3650 should work, and all development will be practically identical

I sold my P800 for the nokia 6600, then a few days ago i read the specs about this phone...

I have just one question now....how much wil it cost...??
Does anybody have a clues what the price is or will be? (in holland).

Why?

First I had an REVO and an nokia 3650...then the REVO began to hard reset al the time (wiping al my data...)
So I thought if had an P800 I would have an:
- PDA
- Phone
- MP3 player

...so far so good....NOT...

the P800 drains battery like i have never seen before...
the screen takes on dust like metal on magnets... even beneath the touch screen!?!? AND beneath the brando screen protector...very weird!!
text input is really shite (for me)... (slow. clumsy little software keypad and slow text recognition)
the keypad which on the P800 only works in contact with the touch screen
I found myself wanting a FULL functionality of a PDA (Ipaq, sharp zaurus, Tungsten...) AND a phone...but the P800 just can't do it...sorry guys...
the cost of an memory stick duo...djeeez....
you have to be careful with such an apparatus...so i bought an krussel leather case fore it...works fine!...it protects the phone very good!...but it makes the P800 even bigger...
the stylus tend to get lost very quickly... (the p900 does it better in this department)
I like to play games on my mobile phone, but i can not play games on the P800 using my keypad (and upper part of the screen)...sure stylus based games are fun but games forced to be played a stylus doesn't work well for me...
P800 only memory stick duos 128 mb or smaller work on it...(there have been reports of 256 memory stick duos working but at an stability cost...)


First i was very excited...when I got my p800...but i wasn't using it to my full potential like (i was doing more on my psion REVO!!)

Then came my decision to go back to my "old system" phone and PDA... now i have an Ipaq and "old" phone (nokia 7110)...damn...it really works better for me...

You'll probably have read / heard some other people selling their P800 because they just didn't like it...i know that a few of the reasons must be from which I explained earlier in this post....sounds a bit crazy...but don't get blinded by the P800 / 900 ...

(these where my reasons and don't have to apply to every one...for a lot of people it really works out...but not for me...and even if the P900 came out...it just looks to much like the P800 for me...)

I thought a phone with a NORMAL keypad, normal size, blue tooth, camera, extra memory slot for pictures and games would work for me so hence my need for an nokia 6600....but a few days ago i read the specs of the Sendo X ....

I think ordering (pre ordering) in: http://www.expansys.fr/product.asp?code=108279 will be your best bet ... but you have to buy it (sim free off course) or wait and get it whith a provider...

waiting is not my strongest point though....

(by the way i'm not from france)
