Sony Ericsson Idou demonstrated - Esato Special
18 February 2009
What we saw was limited demonstration of the new S60 OS from the Symbian Foundation.
The Idou product manager only wanted to show us the media part of the Idou. This was the only part of the phone which could run without the Idou crashing too much. The Idou will be available in stores in the first part of second half of 2009. My guess is that means it will be in the stores October 1st. I asked what they were waiting for. Hardware or software. The answer is, as in most cases, the software engineers. While the C905 has it's origin from Sweden, Idou is mostly developed by the Japanese counterpart of the company.
