Today Sony Ericsson Satio was announced – the new high-end smartphone from Entertainment Unlimited series. It was shown at MWC 2009 on 15th of February with codename Idou. That event wasn’t the real announcement, just a small preview with a small list of specifications and some official photos. But today Sony Ericsson finally announced it with the full list of features, with some surprises like new colours and with final model name Satio.
Sony Ericsson Satio has three wondeful colours. Here they are: Black, Silver and Bordeaux. Black colour was showed at the MWC, Silver was leaked a few weeks after MWC 2009 and Bordeaux colour came as a real surprise to us. Satio is looking so unusual in Bordeaux, this one will be called Sony Ericsson Satio Red . But I should admit, that it is a nice colour and it will be fit for women. Black and Silver are more classical colours and they should fit normally for everyone.
Satio supports GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 and UMTS/HSPA 900/2100 networks. Device has large 3.5″ 360×640 pixels TFT touchscreen, which has ratio 16:9 and supports up to 16,777,216 colors. Device supports SanDisk microSD™ memory cards and 8GB memory card will be included to the box. One of the main feature of the new Satio is, of course, a good camera. Satio has 12.1 megapixel camera with Xenon flash and intuitive touch focus, which helps you to take great images just in few seconds.
Satio has sizes 112 x 55 x 13 mm and weight 126 gram. Device is based on Symbian Foundation operating system (S60 5th edition Symbian™ OS). A lot of applications for this operating system already available online. More specifications of the new Sony Ericsson Satio can be found on the official Sony Ericsson site. And what about launch date of the new Satio? Less then 5 months left to the launch date of this multimedia smartphone. Yeah! The new Sony Ericsson Satio will be launched in October.
