Sony Ericsson launches Satio
Sturdy, sleek and one of the highest-spec touch-screen interface phones we've found, Sony Ericsson's new Satio is a super-speedy entertainment centre with a whole glut of extras to boot.
Satio's indisputable top feature is its 12.1 megapixel digital camera. Featuring a 12 X digital zoom, Xenon flash, image stabilizer and even face detection - Satio's in-built camera is better than most compact image capturers we’ve come across.
Aside from its photographic superiority, Satio's responsive touch screen is simple to get the hang of and the scrolling interface, in standard Sony Ericsson style, is both navigable and attractive.
Boasting a 3,5 inch Wide screen with 640*360 resolution, true-colour touch screen - along with downloadable movies, music and games abound - we were able to access everything at the flip of a finger, -and the 8GB memory card, which comes as standard, renders the entertainment process impeccably smooth.
Whilst we wouldn't count Internet accessibility as a particularly ‘cutting edge’ extra feature, Satio in fact provides Internet access at it's smoothest - with WiFi, Bluetooth and modem connectivity ensuring we were never caught short with somewhere to be.
With almost too many extra features to mention - ranging from video calling and GPS location tracking to downloadable applications and super-fast email accessibility -Satio (available in black, silver and Bordeaux) is a touch screen phone at the very top of its game.
