Article Sendo X - More info, more images...

Hi All.

I've been entering some info on other threads in this forum, but as they are now getting off topic, I felt it might be better to open a new thread, with a bit more info about the Sendo X.

So, firstly some info, which might be new for some of you, detailing items which are "extra" to the Sendo X, in addition to the usual Series60 operating system features:
  • 32MB of BUILT IN storage space (in addition to whever size memory card you insert)
  • Hot-swap memory card slot that takes MMC and SD cards - 1GB SD card tested OK (rs-mmc and mini-sd will also work, with their respective adaptors)
  • PC connectivity via BlueTooth, USB and InfraRed
  • iSync support for the Mac OS (even does the caller ID images)
  • LED flash for the still camera
  • Mini mirror next to the camera for doing self portraits
  • 2x and 4x zoom on the still camera AND the camcorder
  • Unlimited recording on the camcorder (well, limited to the storage memory you have :-)
  • MMS Image Editor (add clip-art, etc to an MMS image prior to sending)
  • MP3 player with playlist support - handy for albums, artists, moods, etc
  • Stereo headset support
  • Document Viewer, supporting many file types
  • Web browser
  • Voice control (for opening applications, and, more importantly, voice dialling)
  • Laptop sized expandable keyboard accessory
  • Now! screen, providing a simple, yet very customisable "home" screen, with History and Favorites tabs
Also some seemingly minor changes, which actually really enhance the useability of the handset:
  • Top status line, visible anywhere in the handset
  • Screen wrapping available, which makes navigation around the phone system really fast (easy to go off the top or bottom in menus and lists)
  • Increased backlight timeout settings (up to 5 minutes), so no screen going dim halfway through reading an SMS !
  • Backlight brightness setting, allowing better adjustment of the actual backlight, rather than just the colour brightness.

And finally, a couple of images:

The keyboard accessory:


A menu screenshot (and no, these are NOT built into the handset!):

Sendo X, facts...

CeIT - T9 Dictionary - It is certainly is in there. On the general subject on languages, I think the Sendo X has the most built-in language options of any Series60 handset.

IRONLUNG - MP3's - Not sure where you heard that. RealOne player is built in, like all S60 units, which does not play them, but there is a separate MP3 player, and it's got some nice options. The headset unit for calls is actually a stereo unit, with a volume control dial, and so makes the Sendo X into a nice MP3 player. There is also the hands-free option, using the built in speaker, which is good too.

Thank you for your quick answer, can you possibly list the available languages? I'd like norwegian to be available on the phone, the menus are not really important but i'm used to a norwegian T9. In the pdf i downloaded norwegian is listed as a possible future language if the phone is to be released in Norway, but i don't really expect that to happen this year so if i really would like this phone then i would probably have to order it from England or something

I asked them the same question at the beginning of the week. The response was that it was to be shipped within the month to numerous European countries...Let's see what your response consists of, hey flipitw.

Nokias are not any better.They go up to 2 meters,TOPS,so i guess its a similar if not the same IR ports.
