The Idou is the Satio

At an event tonight in London, Sony Ericsson has formally launched the 'Idou' concept as the 'Satio'. Rafe's on the spot and will report here shortly in much more detail. See, for example, the AAS Twitter feed. Two other non-smartphones were launched, with equally 'modern' names, it's a new chapter for Sony Ericsson, it seems. The Satio will have its media player integrated with YouTube and Picassa, plus there's full Play Now Arena support. Plus the already-known specs, including the 12 megapixel stills camera and Xenon flash. Much more shortly, including photos, from Rafe. Don't go away....

Read on in the full article.

This should "sate" (Latin pun intended) my hunger for a N82 replacement.

It's hard to believe SE is so stupid to keep that pop-port but it's true... To me it's a complete failure because of that.

They finally ditched the Memory Stick for good. Getting rid of the pop-port as well would have been too much of a shock to Sony. Give them time. Baby steps.
Any info on the CPU?

I do agree but if you are given free wireless BT headphones, makes up for it doesn't it? And Sony make darn good headphones tbh.

S60 5th with a 12.1MP camera? IMO, it wipes the N97 into the dust. Lacks ram though... 128 seems a little limiting.

Thumbs down Only 128 mb internal memory???

I hope this is mistake, but 128 mb internal memory is simply not enough!

The 128MB will be the internal flash storage. I bet RAM is 256MB or more....

This is the only worthy upgrade to the Nokia N82 that's been announced.

No 3.5m jack does seem a bit baffling.

Will be my first switch from Nokia since the Siemens SX1. I purchased the Siemens SX1 because it had Stereo sound and no Nokia did at the time. It still works as well, which can't be said for the foray of Nokia devices I have lying around.

The original N-Gage came out a couple of months before the SX1 and had stereo sound (and AAC support and a dedicated music player button too), but everyone forgets that side of things.

What was the SX1's keypad like to use by the way? It looks a bit frightening, I had a Nokia 7600 with keys at the side too and I never got used to that...

Just read on Symbian Freak that this phone has OMAP3430 cpu with video acceleration!!

A perfect N82 replacement. Sad it didn't come from Nokia.

That lens looks tiny especially considering that it is 12MPX.
I would worry about the optics and the kind of sensor in this phone. 12MPX is just a selling point for morons to be excited about. As with SE's history I imagine they will do what they normally do and soften the images with an aggressive noise reduction algorithm to hide the face that its got a tiny sensor.
I would still pick the N82 or N86 until I see proof that this 12MPX camera module is properly tested.

Only slightly bigger than a 5800, for me the critical factor will be price. On first glance and on paper at least, there is no other phone out there even in the same race as this. If it is somewhere close to Nokia 5800 pricing then it is mine. Fat chance, I think it will be at least doube the price.
