Satio versus N8
Firstly Nokia produced the Nokia 5800 and a little while later Sony Ericsson came up with an outstanding Smart Phone Satio to rival the Nokia 5800. This then led Nokia to come back with the N900 running on the Maemo OS, Sony Ericsson then released two Smart Phones the Aino and Elm.
Enough of that lets get down to the nitty gritty of comparing our beloved Sony Ericsson Satio against the Nokia N8.
With the Satio been out now about 8 months, Nokia have had a quite a bit of time to find out what are the bad points of Symbian s60v5, obviously they have taken a close look because the Nokia N8 has the new Symbian^3 OS.
The Satio compares very well to the Nokia N8 with the Camera, both Phones have a 12 megapixel camera, both have Xenon Flash, however the N8 as HD video recording facilities.
Nokia have paid particular attention to Facebook in the Phone integrating it in to the N8, seeing that the majority of users are using Facebook on their Smart Phones. When Sony Ericsson Updated the Firmware about 6 weeks they ago integrated Facebook on to the Satio.
Whilst the N8 has multi touch the Satio does not, Nokia have integrated the pinch movement(which looks very similar to Apples iPhone) into the new OS.
Overall the N8 dare I say it is a better Phone in most departments then the Satio, but Nokia have had a lot to learn from, with the Nokia 5800 and the Sony Ericsson Satio.
In my opinion if you are Sony Ericsson Lover or a Nokia Lover you will stay with whichever you like.
The Nokia N8 is due for release late summer 2010.
