Sony Ericsson Satio Deals:

The Sony Ericsson Satio will be the manufacturers most powerful camera phone to date and has now been given a confirmed release date as a SIM Free mobile phone on 31st August 2009.

The Sony Ericsson Satio is pleasingly solid, though light, with build quality reminiscent of Sony Ericsson more robust metal based feature phones. It is finished with metallic materials that re-inforce the feeling of solidity. The camera slide is smooth and similar to other high-end Cybershot devices. Indeed the whole device, subjectively, feels smaller that the pictures suggest. Unlike the Sony Xperia X1 the device is smaller than Sony Ericsson’s other high-end phones.

No phone can truly call be a ‘multimedia’ device without the screen being awesome and it is the case with Satio. The touch screen is generous with its 3.5 inches and 16 million colours. It has a 16:9 aspect ratio (360 x 640 pixels) to emphasize that the phone is aimed at multimedia. 3G and Wi-Fi are on board so streaming content from the Internet won’t be a problem.

Sony Satio Deals:

The OS that the Sony Ericsson Satio runs on, is a new user interface of the well-known Symbian OS based on the S60. That’s the first implementation of the spanking new opens-source Symbian user interface developed by the Symbian Foundation.
