Sony Ericsson Aino u10i - 3G 8.1MP WIFI GPS
Back to the proprietary connectors again? Numptys. Why do Sony make these little forays into common sense, only to retreat back up their own backsides?
My sister in law just got one of these. Couldn't care less about the phone but I do have my eye on the stereo bluetooth clip.
Does the FM radio work through the included bluetooth headset? (All other phones I have used usually use the headphone cable as an antenna).
Hang on, did I hear you use the word 'only' before the words '8 megapixels' when talking about a phone camera?
@ChrisC: Yeah, it was supposed to be ironic. Don't think it quite came across in the presentation though.
I really like the idea of having a touchscreen phone with a slide out keypad for texting, best of both worlds IMO. Now if someone could bring out an android version which is thinner (12mm thick) and with standard connectors (i.e. 3.5mm and micro USB) then that would be perfect, at least until technology comes along enough for me to get that folding touchscreen phone that im hankering after. thank you :-)
@Ed: Nice glove comment about capacitive screens :P.;)
It's nice to see Trusted Reviews responding so promptly to allegations of favouritism against resistive touch screens (even though I personally abhor them).In the meantime, fans of capacitive screens who live in cold climes can get a pair of dots gloves that work with capacitive screens,http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshir...I expect many more will follow, especially given nike's collaborations with Apple on iPod-friendly exercise gear in the past.
@Ed - I thought as much!!@Voldenuit - I see your geek gloves, and raise you a meat stylus ;-)http://www.gadgetrepublic.com/...
