The popular Satio will have a major software update available for download. You can download the Satio Update Service Update free at sonyericsson.com/update then wait for the availability of the free Satio Software update. Sony Ericsson disclosed that this software upgrade will be rolled out in a matter of weeks over different regions around the world and not immediately available to all Satio owners. Software updates might require prior approval and cooperation of service providers.
Sony Satio owners will eventually get this new software update that is packed not only with bug fixes but also includes notable feature upgrades.
Here are some of the added features in this free Satio software update that’s up for download
- WVGA video recording – The Satio’s already excellent video recording is augmented to support wide screen format . Therefore the video capture resolution is slightly increased to 864 x 480 pixels. However the VGA (640×480) resolution will remain as the default setting. You will need to manually change it to WVGA to shoot wide screen videos.
- Facebook Photo Uploading – The new update will allow you to finally upload pics from your Satio phone directly to Facebook. A new icon for Facebook Mobile Photo uploading is going to be in the new Homescreen.
- Youtube Video Uploading – Accordingly, Satio owners can now also do direct uploads of videos to Youtube via the Media User Interface.
- DLNA support – Sony Satio will be upgraded to fully support the new DLNA standard for easy file sharing between electronic devices.
- Bluetooth improvement – The Bluetooth feature is now more stable and users will no longer experience problems connecting to other devices via Bluetooth.
- User Interface upgrade – Minor improvements on the User Interface which allows faster start-up and navigation.
Again, this new update for the Sony Ericsson Satio is region-specific. You will get this update not right away but eventually. I am disappointed that they still failed to port the Vivaz UI to the Satio. This phone is already great but it really needs a more efficient user interface.
