Review: Sony Ericsson Aino

Sony Ericsson Aino

Sony Ericsson has finally realized that those average phones will not serve the future of the company any good and hence it has come with two wonderful handsets — Satio and Aino. We’ve already discussed the Satio and now we focus on the Aino which may not match the capability of the Satio but, it still has its own qualities that make the Aino special.

Just like the Satio, Sony Ericsson Aino combines the best of both worlds i.e music and camera unlike previous SE phones that focused on a single quality. The Aino comes with an 8 megapixel camera blessed with qualities like autofocus, LED Flash, face detection, geo-tagging and the tap focus quality dubbed the Touch Focus.

The phone is also equipped with the latest Walkman player from SE with great sound and graphics. A careful observation of the phone reveals that the menus have a lot of similarity with PSP or PS3 and this isn’t by chance.

The gaming inspired design is a conscious effort and therefore it can be said that the Aino is somewhat of a trendsetter in closing the gap between the mobile phones and gaming consoles. To enhance the gaming factor, there is a remote play feature that allows access, control, interaction and streaming of any content on the PS3.

Another important integrated software is the MediaGo which facilitates downloading of any multi-media content (on your PC) using WiFi connectivity. What is more is that you can watch, pause and record live TV streams on the Aino.

Again, the one and only glitch for Sony Ericsson Aino is the lack of a 3.5mm-headphone jack and otherwise, the phone gets full marks from our side.
