While the Satio may be the first of Sony Ericsson’s Entertainment Unlimited range, the handset is actually quite opposite. If you’ve transferred previous photos and music over to your new Satio handset, like I have, depending on how much you transfer, you’ll shortly find that new pictures and videos do not show in the Media section, or on the navigation bar. At first it looks like the phone hasn’t saved the photos but, the files can be accessed through the File Manager. After a look around after experiencing this problem, I’ve find why the photos aren’t showing.

The Satio is limited to 3000 files in the Media section. Meaning once you have more than 3000 files, including music, photos and movies, the newer files will no longer show up unless viewing from the file manager. Sony Ericsson are aware of this and may fix it in a firmware update. Once the latest update is available for branded handsets, I’ll report back on if the limit has been removed, or if we’ll need to wait longer. For now, I suggest removing files you really don’t need on the handset, after backing them up of course.

With the Satio being taken off many UK stores shelves it’s not surprising Sony Ericsson have rolled out an update very quickly. Unfortunately though, the update only appears to be for unbranded handsets. Just Another Mobile Blog reports updating an unbranded Satio, while no update was found for a Vodafone handset, which I can also confirm. Hopefully the update will be available quickly for all Satio handsets. The update has reportedly made the phones respond faster.

While the update has been released, many stores still haven’t put the phone back on the shelves. Although it seems, from further information, the issues only appear to affect the black model, so if you’ve seen the Satio still on sale, like I have, it’s likely the silver version they’re selling. On the same note, the Aino did not get pulled from shelves as confirmed by a Sony Ericsson spokesperson.

If you haven’t got hold of the Sony Ericsson Satio yet, you may have to wait a little longer. Several UK stores have pulled the phone from shelves over software issues and quality concerns. Certain applications will cause the phone to freeze, or shut down when launched. At the moment there isn’t a downloadable fix or firmware update for the handset. If however you’ve already got your Satio and are having problems, some stores are allowing customers to exchange their handset for another model.

The Nokia N97 has also been pulled from shelves leading us to believe it’s a Symbian OS issue rather than a Sony Ericsson build quality problem.

After a year long wait, I finally got my hands on the Sony Ericsson Satio, first of the Entertainment Unlimited range. It’s main feature is the impressive 12.1 megapixel camera, which from what I’ve used of it so far, is definitely as impressive as it sounds.

I’ll be doing a review shortly of the handset but,until then, here’s some unboxing photos of the handset.

Remember Ander’s Satio, with a 1350mAh battery? Well Last100 received an email and a call from Sony Ericsson, to explain that this had been a misunderstanding. Apparently, it is a 1000mAh battery but, the first 0 had been half scraped off, making it look like a 3. Obviously, the second 0 must have also been partly scraped off to look like a 5. Not forgetting, that the battery is under the battery cover most of the time, except when changing batteries or sim card. Which unless it’s had a new sim card in every few minutes, it’s very hard to believe that it really was a 1000mAh battery.
