The G502 also has Video Recording in QVGA resolution at 30fps Mpeg-4 format, and the 'old' icon interface like the K-series (but still A200, I believe as it has the media center)
That's wishful thinking Rahul. I don't like the turn into Motorola-ness Nokia has taken (although the same could be said about S-E's horrid candybars, why do they stick to that!!!), but assuming S-E has any possibility of beating Nokia in the near, middle or far future is too far-fetched. Love it or hate it, Nokia now sells twice as many handsets as S-E, Samsung and Moto put together. That's a hell of a lot of handsets. Many of those are low-end even-lower-price devices, but you know what that gets Nokia? Positioning. They are still the reference in this market, and everybody else follows in their wake. Moto dropped out of Symbian only to go back tail between its legs. S-E has taken the Nokia standard with a passion. Samsung is making really cool models lately but are now looking into copying Nokia UI and see if that way they can stop being so utterly user-unfriendly as they are right now. I'd love to have a Mr. Nokia to grab and shake him and tell him to stop repeating the most horrible N-series design ever in all their new devices, but quite frankly, I think if there was he would just stay there and take the battering. They are in a position that allows them to dismiss the efforts of the rest as the mad ramblings of an angry hobo. Look at how they reacted to iPhone. Utter indiference. Everybody crazes over touchscreen, still we are waiting to see them show something there. They act as if they didn't give a damn. They probably don't, iPhone is probably not even a chink in their armour.
P5 will follow P1 way.. meaning not successful enough.. simply bcoz by the time it release, N96 is there. the price will drop fast. Frankly speaking, I like SE phs but not touch screen SE.
Sony Ericsson is going to pass Nokia within two years... They have terrific product line up.....Great Going SE....
Sony Ericsson as seen the N82 in Black being released soon the G502 will be a good challenge to Nokia,just hope the camera is improved from Sony Ericsson on the G502 as alately there cameras have been somewhat different from when they first started an as not as good, an instead of improving them they have got a little worse on there mobiles
If the photographs of the P5 are true and it has a sad slider keyboard.. it will flop like the P1 ... Sony seems to be loosing the market of highend business ready smart phones to blackberry , i mate , nokia and motorola... unfortunately for Sony that is the creamy layer of the market and what you are normally benchmarked at for example look at the e-90...
ok i don't know about the G502, but the P5 is definitely fake.
if you take a look at the diagonal glossy glare of the screen, the shadow and the reflection are perfectly proportional - something you only see on prototype designs.
If the G502 will come out Q2 2008, then it'll be earlier than the G700/900?!
P5 is awesome, just 1 major drawback. The keyboard. It reminds me of the predecessor M600 which was a lousy design and horrendous to use. Well done SONY.
I'm so excited about the P5. It's an upgraded version of the P1 and much, much better. It's definitely the return of the half-QWERTY, half-torture phone. Cheers!
Hmmm it sems there's no more jog dial eh? I think 5 way jog dial found on P800 would come in handy
You guys made me laugh, please refer to Xellar's link. The G502 pic is real(it's from an official pic btw) but not the Paris'(P5) which is made by pavlog's dog. Pay attention carefully to this link given by Xellar :)
Now tell me it isn't fake :)
also yeah, how can the p5 be all completely fake. Why not say g502 is fake aswell, probably following my point that i posted b4. many ppl complain about se not having 16mil colours, well if u can see all the colours so well, why cant u see the k750 taking the picture of the phone. maybe, try not to be amused by large numbers, and also agree the p5 is real.
To the guy who went mad over screen size:
If u want a phone that has huge screen size, why not get a proper pda if u want to show off. Basically, it's not se fault that ppl are saying that if phones are fake or not, its the ppl who look at this phones, get jealous and say just like the p5: "the features are to good to be se so it must be fake". If the screen is the biggest problem u have, get a htc shift: 7 inches, u can show off all u want with it.
It's the first time that i've seen GSMArena and M-R having decieved by a photoshopped spypic created by one of the finest SE photoshoppers around: pavlog's dog.
Xellar, and what makes you so sure ??
sorry to say that but GSMarena is always a source of trust even in news of leakedd devices...:D....
