hahaha yesterday i am to see stores that sell P1i with the new price only $ 150 because after UIQ DEAD P1i only Java platform whether you want to pay $ 300 - $ 400 for a phone with the Java platform? since born the early UIQ never in support of Sony Ericsson\'s proven by at least from the software for Sony Ericsson UIQ. so Sony Ericsson only sell design and Symbian name.
If sony ericsson's really dooming UIQ ..it's not imposible that many soners will be dsappointd of U!!why u make it,sell it,then u just throw it like rubbish??u don't respct wth ur consumers!!!competitors will take over guys!!Remember that..
don't se try to use s60
those se fans always say s60 Lag,Hang,Jamp phone
beside that, if is not NOKIA now s60 won't success!
SöNER Shouldn't bury the uiq?why??it's a big mstake for sony ericsson..try to improve it!!..why u hav 2 gv up?u will b knocked down by others..uiq is the unique of sony ericsson.. KEEP IT!!!
This is a very bad remark ever made by a world renown organization! U are selling this product, the next day u condemn it like never happened before. It's like a suicide marketing efforts to your brand image. SE should have informed to the world that "we are going to focus on developing new device base on S60 or WinMo. While improvement or bug fix will still be carried out to our previous device models". I do hope SE can consider what I'm trying to say here. Pls do not leave your users who have been using your device for that moment. Do upgrade the latest UIQ software for your good sake. And in fact, UIQ OS is impressive enough if true R&D evolve.
i use to be an uiq fan but lack of applications and themes made me pissed off ,i used P910i and M600i
i don't want anymore UiQ phones in my collection hate it
WHAT A GOOD NEWS FOR opera an digia for keep create UIQ !!
Ive seen this comming, UIQ is slow, unreliable and not by far nice enough in the graphics. usuing the P990 i know this allll to well. sony made mistake after mistake with there phones and im sure these failures are one of the resons for the Xpedia that usues Windows instead of UIQ. maybe sony could take some of the S60 succes to there phones, these interfaces have proven there functionality and stability.
If I were you I will change to HTC because SE can abandon their consumer at anytime, UIQ for ex.
Sony Ericsson did not respect their UIQ customers especially with UIQ removed, so for why you still use UIQ Phone? sell your UIQ Phone right now while prices are still there because UIQ now is nothing , UIQ is now only memories and garbage.
now i think im gonna sell both my p990i and p1i and buy an Xperia or HTC touch pro.
big change for me (an avid user of UIQ)
UIQ3 to Windows Mobile
I think it's a big mstake 4 SE 2 bury Uiq..in my experienc usng phone,uiq is easier 2 use than symbian.stronger compard wth symbian.many symbians' phone are more senstv when getting virus..try not 2 doom it,but improve it!!!
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2008I have owned 3 UIQ phone in the past. I gave SE 3 chances to make this UI better and they fail... moreI guess UIQ was 2 smart 4 u. Go 4 something with no OS.:D mayb that would help u more.
I got everythin in 1 click in my devices mayb u read z manual vice versa:D
Concerning the p990i ur right SE was too stupid 2 release a not working phone:) they were looking for selling Items . They don't respect there clients whereas they would have waited 4 z bugs 2 b fixed b4 releasing that Item. Clients are becoming betatesters with no bugfixing which lead to a dead end. SE is goin down with or without UIQ. UIQ was the only good thing they had
UIQ RIP? Oh yeah. I see this coming. But as an UIQ active user (SonyEricsson W960) I feel sad and angry because it's really hard for me to switch from S60 to UIQ. Before this I always trust my S60 devices, but when I finally bought W960 last april... suddenly the UIQ RIP news appeared (Symbian Foundation). What I can say is UIQ really helps me a lot in my daily routines and more technically robust than S60. Well after this the latest S60-5th Edition will gonna be my cup of tea. Good Luck Symbian Foundation and thanx a million UIQ Tech. U guys really make my day!
It's a stupid step from SE they ended something so beautiful you know y?? the Reason is SE they didn't even bother themselves to update firmwares they released more models than they did bug fixing.
SE mobiles were becoming harder to manipulate less functioning with nothing to add. My 3.2 megapix cam can't take a clear snapshot.My dum nokia 6300 with its 2 megapix cam was better big times.
I'm holding at the moment to lines one using p800 and the other using p1i.Having the first and last model of UIQ is not becoz i'm SE fan.IT was only the OS.
Goin 2 shift 4 Samsung omnia it's my last resort.
why sony ericsson do not create there own os.why use s60 symbian for they know it's nokia own.come on SE you are better than nokia.
sell my M600i and change to old Nokia E61 bye2 Sony Ericsson no more money for you
I have owned 3 UIQ phone in the past. I gave SE 3 chances to make this UI better and they failed 3 times. The P800 and the P910 were just not user friendly at all and were overpriced. The P990 which I bought as soon as it came out was the worst phone I have ever owned Its at the bottom of my list of 28 phones I've owned. I sold that thing after only 2 weeks. The UI was absolute rubbish. How is it that it takes over 10 steps to send a sms, thats ridiculous. Symbian s60 is the best combination of business usefullness and entertainment value. S60 is also extremely customizable that way you can set up the menus the font size the coulors the themes any way you like to suit you. I have used and owned a few WinMo devices myself but the slow performance, the poor displays the need for 2 hand operation the bugs, the bugs, the bugs and more buggy bugs I've had to deal with made mu user experience horrible. UIQ is dead... good! now maybe SE will use S60
