Sony Ericsson P1 finally here

Today we saw the new super smartphone by Sony Ericsson finally officially unveiled. Just as when everybody thought that it would be named P700, the manufacturer announced it as Sony Ericsson P1 - but mind you, it's still the same handset we all eagerly waited.

The next step in the Sony Ericsson P-series development is finally officially unveiled - after months of sneak previews and information leaks. The Sony Ericsson P1 is based on the Symbian 9.1 OS and runs with the UIQ 3.0 interface. It doesn't boast some revolutionary features, but it's all about the complete set of function it offers.

Those include a 2.6" 262K color touchscreen TFT display with a QVGA resolution, a 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus, 3G support with video calls and Wi-Fi, just to name a few. The goodies don't end here and they continue with stereo Bluetooth, QWERTY keyboard (like the one seen in Sony Ericsson M600), USB, FM radio and a Memory Stick Micro M2 slot.

System wise, it has a 208 MHz processor just as Sony Ericsson P990 and Sony Ericsson M600, but carries twice the RAM (128MB) plus it has 160MB of integrated memory available to the user. As with all UIQ 3 smartphones it is equipped with handwriting recognition system, MS Office documents viewer/editor and it even has a business card scanner application, that as we saw in P990 works reliably to scan a business card and to insert the data from it directly to your Contacts list.

The Sony Ericsson P1 will be commercially available in Q3, 2007.

Now that it's officially announced, we can officially present you one of our GSMArena in-house reviews that might interest you. You've guessed it, we managed to get our hands on the hottest Sony Ericsson smartphone and you will find our full Sony Ericsson P1 review here.

Please consider P1 will possibly use the T650 3.2 MP camera module witch is not the same (smaller sensor and lenses, way worse pictures) than the one in K800/K810. Also, singng songs how Sony is best is just biased PoV which is far from thuth - camer...
