Earlier this year, Sony Ericsson leaked a concept phone they named Idou. However, the Idou is now officially named the Sony Ericsson Satio. Though the name was changed, the candy bar handset however, doesn’t.
It still offers a gorgeous 3.5-inch touch screen as your primary interface, and the few physical controls below the display and on the spines remain. You’ll also find the sliding camera lens cover on the rear face. It will come in three colors: black, silver, and bordeaux.
For those who missed its original specs, its other features include a 12.1-megapixel camera, a music player, e-mail and messaging, a speakerphone, Bluetooth, PC syncing, USB mass storage, a personal organizer, assisted GPS, Wi-Fi, an FM radio, YouTube and Facebook applications, handwriting recognition, and a Symbian operating system. The quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) world phone also supports 3G networks (UMTS/HSDPA 850/900/2100), which makes it fully functional in most markets.
It should be available later this year, though pricing was not announced.
