As plemix pointed out. Its a phone for the guys who want to keep apart. If you carry this phone around you are sure to get stares. Something which people in the industry are ready to pay for. Its a piece of art which no other has accomplished before.

@boinng- Dude. 10 years ago? Are you joking here? This isnt a circus and you get no brownie points by playing the fool here. Those of you who are commenting on the looks without even having a hands on experience are being too extravagant. there are things which do not catch the eye unless you see them in person. ALL reviewers who did a hands on praised the phone.

Yeah stands out in the crowd for being ugly That keypad is horrible hardly what i would call good looking or fashionable. Looks square & boxy its simply awful. Much prefer my c902 for looking smart Them headphones look big can imagine them poking out your ears even managing to clear wax

No fooling, just sense. 10 years ago, all phones had small, black and white screens. Amongst those, the screen of the "Pureness" would be innovative, eyecatching, technically impressive, and - crucially - perfectly suited to the monochromatic job at hand. I can't help wondering whether that's when this concept was first born - somewhere in an Ericsson lab perhaps. Maybe there's even a prototype out there somewhere, dated 1999.

Fast forward ten years, where mobile browsing, video, picture messaging (and taking) is not only commonplace but a day-to-day requirement for the majority of phone users (particularly the wealthier users this is aimed at), and suddenly it's a quaint novelty whose time is long past. A bit like making a new phone with no 3G or GPRS hardware but a really fast CSD connection - pointless and out of date.

The battery life will be good though with no colour screen

@Boinng

Usually, no, make that most of the times I tend to agree with you but recently all you do is just bash SE for the sake of it.

What happened to your good criticism? Fair enough, looks of a particular product won't appeal to everyone but some of the things you write are really silly and unlike you.

Don't get me wrong, I still think SE are screwing up more than any other manufacturer and they are (to me at least) going to be extinct if they carry on like this but this phone is/was intended to be a 'simple' phone that does a basic job of a phone with no frills and thrills and that's exactly what it is.

The transparent screen is a novelty in cellphones no matter how you look at it and this will appeal to some people.

To me, like others, it looks good enough to buy for its simplicity. I may just buy it seeing that I always use one 'dumb' phone plus a 'smart' one and in my engagements I often need a camera-less phone.

Art geniuses usually get posthumous recognition simply because the masses don't understand them in their lifetime. Some who actually do, give them the value they deserve while they are living. I see the same thing happening here. Most who criticize without having the slightest knowledge in design don't even see the values of balance, proportion, contrast, repetition, trend, styling in this device. And furthermore, blatantly disregarding their pioneering effort simply to feed on their lust to condemn. It's an effort nevertheless if you can't see it as a successful one. It has 'exclusivity' written all over it so excuse SE for not tickling your fancy. The 'concierge' concept is groundbreaking if you ask me, A+ on the effort, A on design. I'd buy it in a heartbeat if I had the means for it

Sorry but I really can't see the appeal of this...yet ok its supposed to be a fashion phone etc.

But we are living in 2009, who would really pay 600 for a phone with a black and white screen and extremely basic features?

I have a Satio, and think it's great that I can carry a Music player, Camera, Sat Nav and Internet Browser, And Video player all in my pocket in one box, I paid 400 for my Satio which may sound expensive, but when you consider how it enhances my life, and makes things easier for me it is worth it.
But to spend 600 on a phone that doesnt do any of these things, I cant see why you would want to, It is more suited to buying for my mum or someone for 20, as she would just want basic features, but that price is outrageous.

People still seem to dwell within the mindset that this phone is for everyone. Pffh... It's for filthy rich people and people who can appreciate its aesthetics (translation: NOT YOU)

Honestly, and truthfully, I tell it how it seems to me, no more no less. You're welcome to disagree with me, but if it seems like I'm "bashing" SE it's because they keep on dissapointing me, no other reason than that. The "Pureness" is, IMHO, a misguided attempt at a design statement that just doesn't work, and more importantly does nothing for the brand as a whole - as such it's an expensive distraction from the hard work that SE really needs to do in bringing the rest of its range up to 2010 standards. Look at the delays on the X2, the bodged release of the Satio, the punting of the X10 off into the new year, and then tell me that the "Pureness" was a worthwhile project for SE's design and R&D teams to take on right now...

What happened to your good criticism? Fair enough, looks of a particular product won't appeal to everyone but some of the things you write are really silly and unlike you.


Sure the looks are subjective and I've never implied that my opinion of those looks will be shared by everyone. I do fundamentally disagree with the supposed "concept" of this phone as a talk and text-only device in the year 2009 - I think it's completely underestimating how essential features like media and web browsing are in the here and now, and I don't believe the novelty value of the screen will overcome that. When I say this phone would have done well in 1999, I mean it, because that's where this concept (and screen technology) belongs IMHO.

It's worth noting that the same "exclusive" translucent LCD effect is also utilised by countless tacky calculators and alarm clocks to be found in pound shops everywhere, often to much more readable effect.
