the Front keypad with the numbers can be removed, if u take a look at the SE/products/p990, u'll see it in the flash.
as for the firware upgrade, anythings possible.
hi all, i work for a mobile retailer and have just had a chat with a sony ericsson rep who said the phone should be out around may, thats what he confirmed to me. so there you go straight from the horses mouth, thats provided they dont shift it back again!
The SE productpage tells us that the keypad is removable. But I cant find some reallife pics from this phone without the keypad. Does anyone knows some nice pics from this phone which show how the keypad can be removed??
And is it true that this phone doesnt support UPnP, and if not, is there a chance that it will be implemented later by a firmware update?
Thnx a lot!
I see you mention something about 'operating time'. A N80 with a QD batt. will have about the same on time as a P990 (check the amps , screen size etc.) For a'real' business phone nothing comes close to a WM5 OS cell anyway :-)
For those the compare SE P990 and NOKIA N80; you are comparing the wrong phone in the Nokia line. You should at least compare it with the E70 or 9300/I. P990 is a business phone with QWERTY keyboard and operating talk time fit for business purposes. The fact that it has two cameras is not a valid reason to compare it with N80. And to the person that complains that you cannot compare phones which are not out yet I say this. The comparison is done purely on the specification issued by each manufacture, and the GSM Arena so kindly provides for phone enthusiast. You must be a very sad person to take the Mickey of people that read these specs and post their opinions.
Wicked Phone at All A Update Good version of out Beloved 9 series of SE...2mp camera Great Thats the Best sot And Symbian 9.1 ...Guys u better get ur Hand on this Phone Sounds brilliant
Looking at the picture of the SE p990, I think I made up my mind. I'm going for the Nokia N80. This phone looks way too bulky. And two keypads? Why would I need two?
This phone is out and so is the Nokia N80! I just don't know which way to go. I'm looking forward to the video conferencing capability of both phones. My question is, would the video conferencing work if one has the SE and the other the Nokia?
How can you compare 2 unreleased phones????
Neither the N80, nor the P990 is available yet. We don't even know if either works at all!
Same for the ratings here on the left...who votes? and based on what?
Toyota launches a new Supra soon..I vot it's performance is 300%...based on what?...hopes and dreams?
Let's wait for comparissons when they are released....then we'll have a noon-showdown.
I believe that come June 2006, SE is going to announce that it is going to be delayed again to Q3.
This cellphone is too slow too late to launch and too overpriced.
D BesT PhoNe EveR.. "ang tagal naman nito" but still i can wait.. Well guyZ this phone is coming very soon.... just wait.. go SE..U
So what am I supposed to do when there is no 3G network in my area ? There will never be one :( On the other hand there is EDGE! 98% of Switzerland has EDGE for almost a year now but less then 20 has 3G coverige :( 3G will never substitute EDGE ! Actually the other way around may be more factual :)
There's no prob. with this phone, it's only being upgraded as mentioned before..so the company delayed the released date...since there's 3g , there is no need for EDGE anymore..
This is Vapor-ware. SE have not been able to launch a 'Smart cell' for 1 and a half years now ! In the fast cell market that is a life time. Best SE a.t.m. is the old P910i :( Even Alcatel and Sagem is better ! If you want cutting EDGE Symbian look no further than the Market Leader NOKIA N80 :)
I just wonder if this this serie has any problem cause in the schedule it will on market since the end of 2005 but till now not available. anyway, i hope this serie not make the Sony Ericsson down.
this is the closest thing to the PERFECT PHONE these days...
of course it still misses things, that's why it's not perfect!
the main thing is the memory... it needs a 4-8 GB micro HDD
and i think... the operating sistem should be improved... it's not that friendly... it's not like nokia's symbians... i dunno...
and the next phone in this series (probably P999) should be a simple-clasic bar phone... what's with all the flip-flops and sliders and stuff like that?
It's a phone, not an action-figure!
that's it... that's my opinion!
I think, there's no need QWERTY since most people used the dial number to send SMS.
It's better to remove the QWERTY and get an extra large to the display (LCD). That's feature will make you the greatest "Phone" in the world.... (3G/GPRS/LAN/Good Operating System/Long-life Battery)
guys will this phone ever come? i have nokia 7610 for almost an year. first i decided to change it by NokiaN70 but later back in october when i read about this phone i was so happy that this phone will rock. but where is this phone? Sonyericsson said that it'll be launched in jan-06 but it was just a hoax. Tell me guys something if this phone flops then what shall we do? i am symbian + touchscreen lover. i still think that this phone will beat nokia.com but my only question is will it ever come or not ?
