Almost a year after Sony Ericsson announced the Satio, the handset has made it’s way to the US. The Satio has been available since October in the UK and faced many initial launch problems, including being pulled from stores. Hopefully with such a long gap between the US release, all the bugs should have been fixed. Although being almost a year after the announcement, is anyone in the US still interested in the Satio handset? If you are you can pick it up from Sony Style for $650.

The Satio is part of the entertainment unlimited range, bring CyberShot, WalkMan and Smartphone together.

SouthPeak Games has announced that Dementium II will be released in North America on February 16, 2010 and in Europe on March 5, 2010. I gotta say after playing the first one on my DS I am not looking forward to this one. Not because it’s bad but because it’s creepy!

Here’s a summary of Dementium II from SouthPeak Games:
