Sony Ericsson Satio – an Entertainment Unlimited device


Sony Ericsson Satio

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 microSDโ„ข 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 Symbianโ„ข 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.

  1. Does anyone knows the video quality???? if its QVGA this phone will be a suck just like ALL SE phones ๐Ÿ‘ฟ im expecting minimun VGA or even better HD

  2. will it run standard S60 apps with no fuss?

    also, does S60 have a good twitter app? ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’m glad there are more S60v5 phones coming out. Bodes well for the number of applications I can run on my Nokia 5800, and the Satio has the same resolution, so that means that apps are even more likely to be compatible ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. This should be release tomorrow or at least in a few days and not in six months time, by that time people who have been waiting for this will get feed up and buy another phone from another maker… ๐Ÿ™„

  5. I agree that Idou is a lot better name than Satio. Idou sounds more personal and Satio just doesn’t have a soul 8)

  6. I have two questions.
    One is how much is the battery capacity?
    The other is how much is the cpu?

  7. 12,1 Megapixel camera is such a waste on the phone. could see that money going to amoled or good os (eg android) instead of stupid marketing race on megapixels ๐Ÿ™

  8. does anyone know how much this phone is going to cost? โ“
    im trying to save up; i need to know ๐Ÿ˜€
    so if anyone knows, please tell me :mrgreen:
    thankyou ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ 8) ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰ :mrgreen:

  9. ๐Ÿ˜€ there’s so much clutter in your pocket if you have a digital camera, cellphone, and mp3 player. it’s a 3 in one package don’t you think? especially if you bring this phone in concerts or unexpected moments where you want your pictures to be professional looking… :mrgreen:

  10. I have this handset, and must confess I am dissapointed with it compared to the K850i which it was supposed to upgrade, considering there is a lot of marketing blurb suggesting this is the SE flagship, the radio does not have RDS, there is no equalizer for the music player, there is no option to change the text alert settings, no torch facility. It doesn’t come with much instructions as this is my 4th SE handset, I would have expected it to surpass a K750i, ok it has wi-fi and is touch screen but then again, so are a lot of lower cost handsets ๐Ÿ˜ณ
