While the Sony Ericsson Satio may not be the phonemaker’s latest smartphone, a few months back when it first launched here in the UK, there were a few problems with the handset which led it to having been withdrawal from the shelves! However, Sony Ericsson didn’t leave this for long. The Satio has been a popular choice of cameraphone since the error got patched up. Its most attractive feature is probably its 12.1 megapixel camera and unique new UI. We’ve been lucky to be sent one for a review and here are some of our pics so far.
After having recently featured to everyone our unboxing gallery and gallery comparing the LG Viewty Smart to the LG Arena. We’ve now been able to test it out thoroughly for a few weeks. In this first part of our review, we’ll comment on what we thought of the new generation Viewty’s completely revamped, elegant design.
The LG Viewty Smart carries on the heritage of the first LG Viewty which was one of the first full touchscreen mobiles to sport a five-megapixel camera and direct video upload onto YouTube. Having sold over 6.5 million units worldwide, the second incarnation of Viewty offers even greater enjoyment while viewing and sharing, in addition to taking still and moving pictures, with a number of upgraded features in addition to its Intelligent Shot Mode. Main features of the new LG Viewty Smart GC900 include an 8 megapixel sensor with sensitivity up to ISO 1600, a higher resolution WVGA touchscreen, a more intelligent image processor and LGs easy-to-use S-Class User Interface (UI).

If you frequently visit any part of Asia such as China, Singapore, Korea, you will already know that they have got a number of dual sim card mobiles, made by their own native brand. But what we have got here is one by LG, called the LG KS660, its the latest dual sim phone from LG which runs on a tri-band network. This handset allows users to have both their business and personal lines concurrently on a single device without having to switch sim cards. This function is also ideal for backpackers or travellers.
The concept of this dream iPhone Pro is not from Apple MacWorld 2009, in fact, it originates from Giz reader Mat Brady. It is hopefully something that we do expect to see coming from Apple in the future.
For those who have used iPhone will know it offers excellent features, however, it’s not perfect. It doesn’t have a good enough camera, it lacks a proper physical keyboard and the storage is not enough for some users – this is exactly where iPhone Pro comes in!
Gizmodo thought the concept from Mat’s iPhone Elite is great but could be better by modifying the keyboard, for example, adding a direction pad and two buttons like the Nintendo DS. Therefore, this is an iPhone with a high quality camera, a front camera for iChat, video capability, 60GB storage and lastly a slide-out keyboard with a D-pad.
