[boygeniusreport]Weâ€™re sure you hate it every time tech bloggers say â€œtake this with a grain of salt,â€ but youâ€™re just going to have to take this with a grain of salt. According to the folks over a mobile.se, a German PR rep for Sony Ericsson has gone on the record to state that the Idou â€” a Symbian-powered device with a 3.5â€³ touchscreen, monstrous 12 megapixel camera and GPS â€” is slated to commence retail sales in October with November being the fall-back date.
When asked for comments, Gustaf Brusewitz of Sony Ericsson Sweden would only reconfirm the companies previous commitment to ship the Idou â€œsometime in the second half of the year,â€ something that we hope means that the Idou will go on sale well before Christmas to help the struggling Japanse/Swedish owned company get back on its feet. Besides, wouldnâ€™t it be nice to have a 12 megapixel camera phone in your pocket on Halloween to document your best friend almost blowing his hand off with an M-80? Yeah, thatâ€™d be so sweet.
