the combo of jog dial & back key & the brilliant uiq interface more than makes up for the lack of a nav key.
Are we going to see some very useful apps that were present in P900/910 but missing in the M600 to be present in the P1?
Otherwise the phone looks just too good to eat!
I was absolutely pissed off with my p990. Its OS was crashing at least 3 times a day, and in a nasty way, when you are in the midst of writing a lengthy message. However, our IT guy had recently reinstalled the latest Symbian. And thing got much better. MUCH BETTER! Now I'd say I'm happy again with this thing. :)
One thing missing in the review is the speed of the processor. Wud be great if one can post the detailed review of the P1
i would like s/e to reimburse me with this fone after selling me the appalling p990i,,they have admitted they struggled with the uiq system but we are stuck with an expensive fone here sony and its just not on,,im not letting this drop along with the other 132000 complaints made to s/e and thats only the persons with knowledge wait till the shyer people start speaking up
I really like, did i say like, this phone? I mean I love this phone. Anyone here knows when this phone will be available as I am getting desperate, I feel i have to have this one. for all whos talking about the nokia n95 and all its specs, i really don't have any need for he majority of tha phone's features. one more thing the bashing has got to stop. plus there are a bunch of liers here who like a particular handset whether it be sony or nokia or any other brands and hence you tell a bag of lies on that particular brand or on the brand that you hate so very much, be truthfull people. we all know that there is not one perfect phone out there, (well at least I know that)so just say what is truthful and down with he madness. peace y'all. someone please tell when this is coming out as i really need to know, thanks
Sorry if you don't get what I mean. What I mean by upgrading an ipod to a zune is that I will buy a microsoft zune so that I can replace my ipod.
Sure Good For Business!.
@Blane, How Do You Upgrade An Apple iPod Video Into Zune?.
Good hardware but stupid keypad, why don't just make keypad like W960 with P1 spec....????
"I will not buy any SE products for good."
you're really serious huh? not to mention SE have two platforms up to date UIQ and A100(to be replaced by A200 in 2008) and you are going ditch all SEs just because they have left the P990 software update?
Last month I mentioned that this is a great phone....i take it all back. SE has abruptly stopped the development of the firmware for P990i/M600/W950. The P1 also uses the same OS as the other stated model & famous of its instability or incompatibility with the phone. It seems SE solution to get rid of the problem is to run away from it. It's sad to say as a SE fan, I'm truly disappointed; betrayed would be a better word, with their decision. Until they revert their decision to improve their firmware, I will not buy any SE products for good.
a bluetooth keyboard should definitely be more useful for the device. And price is what matters most.
The biggest mistake of SE was their reserch and development on the P990 whereas everything is very new, UIQ 3 at that time is so new to SE and SE don't have experience dealing with symbian OS versions higher than their old P910's OS: the 7.0 SE have no accurate idea how much will be the hardware requirements of the UIQ 3 together with the improved camera, inclusion of WiFi and so much more. that's why they missed the very important aspect of being a powerful smartphone.: the high Memory capacity and management. but later on SE's update services tried it's best to fix all the common bugs of the pre-production P990 until one remaining major problem is left unsolved: the poor memory management due to the small RAM capacity of the phone. that's why P1 and W960 had arrived to correct it. although i also hope for a better system consistency(for lower memory consumption) and more bug fixes(like fixing the alarm volume bug) as this phone will be released soon. SE should take their time developing this phone so that buyers won't face terrible problems encountered with the previous P990 and totally brainwashed them not to buy SE UIQ phones. but i'm pretty sure this phone will make the leap towards the high-end smartphone market. even though it's not as featurepacked as other models of other brands, they will surely give consumers quality rather than quantity:)
I currently have a P990, greatest phone ever...battery last forever, no bugs, excellent symbian phone, i use it to listen to music everyday in my car with the MBR-100 bluetooth receiver...And for sure as soon as the P1 comes out i'm getting it...same as p990 but in a smaller package and better camera...plus other updates...SE RuLeS!!!
