    Sony Ericsson SatioThe Sony Ericsson Satio combines the stunning technological legacy of the Walkman brand of audio players with the cutting-edge digital prowess of the Cybershot prosumer camera line into a richly featured smartphone. This means an industry-leading camera with a full range of multimedia playback options based on the Symbian S60 5th edition operating system, all in your hand.

    The all-new Sony Ericsson Satio features a 3.5″, 16 million-color resistive touchscreen with a 640 x 360 pixel resolution, 12 megapixel state-of-the-art autofocus camera with LED and xenon flash, active lens cover and VGA@30fps video recording. An ARM Cortex-A8 600 MHz CPU, PowerVR SGX dedicated graphics accelerator and 256 MB of RAM provides stunning visual effects and graphical power. Quad-band GSM support, 3G with HSDPA 7.2 Mbps and HSUPA 3.6 Mbps support, Wi-Fi and GPS with A-GPS and microSD card slot (up to 32GB) are the added advantages of the Sony Ericsson Satio.

    Additionally, the Sony Ericsson Satio has a built-in accelerometer and stereo FM radio. At only 0.5 inches thick and weighing 4.4 ounces, the Satio is unrivaled in size and features. Xenon flash (the best type for camera phones), Dual LED flash (for recording video), up to 12x digital zoom and auto focus are deciding factors of the Satio. Face detection, image stabilization, GPS geotagging, and touch focus bring the high-tech features of a fully independent digital camera to the Satio, one of the only phones in the world to contain so many features.

    Sony Ericsson Satio 3The Sony Ericsson Satio’s large 3.5-inch screen is great for movie viewing and web browsing and image processing is fast, less than 1 second. Other important factors are sharper details on images and it fares better than the Pixon 12 in low lighting conditions.

    Downsides: Sony Ericsson Satio are bulky looks and slow autofocus, which can take up to 3 seconds. Lack of digital compass, stereo speakers and office editing software are the other downsides of this otherwise awesome device. Sony Ericsson Satio 4
