I choose this because of its design, more talk-time, more resolution in screen as it has 360x640 ( more than iphone 3gs), it also has 3.5G HSDPA though it looks bulky it is so light-weighted.
Overall, I love this phone for having attractive design, more free apps and HD games of s60v5. So, I choose this for my 2009 mobile.

Firstly,I'd like to say  it's a revolutionary phone with Nokia's Symbian OS, with 3.5 inch 16:9 touch screen TFT LCD with nHD techonology. This is a specification killer phones of 2009. If I am not wrong. Anyway, I've compare with some data sheet of Satio and Pixon 12.I don't like Pixon 12 for 6 reasons. They are1. Smaller LCD screen2. Unresponsive touch ( very bad)3. No proper OS like Satio 4. No lens cover ( means if I put it unconsiously into the pocket it will be spoiled easily)5.No front facing camera6.Very bad design and ugly UIP.S-Samsung is also well-known for cheating in mobile market before. Then, to sum up, I choose Satio over Pixon 12 without any hesitations.I love its recording of WVGA and camera ( the pixels are pretty kool and I can gurantee that it can completely replace the normal digital cameras as it also has same or better optics capabilities)I also know that Satio has been awarded best camera phone of 2009 and I love this. That's all. Cheers....
