SE!Y are some guys saying that this phone will be crap?I have a P990i currently I have had 4 SE phones before this.Actually I love SE phones so much.I will have to get a P1 as soon as it lands in the market.The specifications are exquisite and uncomparable to any phone maybe p990i.Continue the good work SE!
Does this phone have GPS? can we use series 60 v3 software on this phone?
I think it will be a crappy phone , just like S-e p990. i`ve had it for a month .. and I couldn`t be happier that i`ve got rid of it. Very few softwares for it, bad reception in signal ..battery life.. and the list could go on.

Building on the feature set of earlier models, the Sony Ericsson P1 supports a wide range of push email solutions and Web browsing applications, plus connectivity via hi-speed UMTS and Wireless LAN (WiFi™). Add to this its compact size and multimedia capabilities and the P1 is the complete mobile office. It is based on the Symbian™ operating system (v9.1) and UIQ 3.0, an open platform that offers broad potential for multimedia applications from operators/carriers, content owners and third party developers.
In short, the P1 is a device as small as a standard phone that offers flexible ways to work:
Dual function keyboard - full alpha-numeric (e.g. QWERTY) text input combined with one hand phone usability
Choice of text input method including handwriting and word completion
Push email enabled including support for Exchange ActiveSync™ and BlackBerry® Connect™
Integrated WLAN and VoIP enabled
3.2 megapixel camera with business card scanner
Large 2.6” touchscreen with a Transflective Display that is easier to view in bright light conditions
Push email and remote working
Always being connected while on the move is now a normal part of working life. The Sony Ericsson P1 gives you the ability to handle your corporate or personal emails, contacts and calendar wherever you are. It offers support for a broad range of push email services including Exchange ActiveSync™ and BlackBerry Connect and allows for remote wiping of email and PIM data; something critical in the event of the phone being stolen or misplaced.
The Sony Ericsson P1 lets you read and edit documents on the move, whether Microsoft Word, PowerPoint or Excel. It also ships with a desk stand and USB cable in-box, making it straightforward to synchronise with your PC.
High speed connectivity
Both UMTS and integrated WLAN provide for high-speed Web browsing and data downloads, plus email at a rate and performance you enjoy from your office desktop. The Sony Ericsson P1 is also VoIP enabled for making calls over the internet.
Surfing the Web is intuitive thanks to the Opera™ Web Browser that displays pages in horizontal, wide screen aspect. The large, touchscreen QVGA display can be seen and used even in bright environments due to the Transflective Display. The 3.2 megapixel camera takes great shots to store or share via Picture Blogging and is also a useful tool for work purposes. It does away with the need to collect stacks of business cards when travelling. Just take a close-up shot of a business card and the card scanner transfers the contact details directly into the phonebook.
As well as a business tool, the Sony Ericsson P1 also serves as an advanced multimedia companion. Its music and video player mean that you can take your favourite tunes and video clips with you on the 512MB Memory Stick Micro™ (M2™) provided. Catch the latest news via the on-board FM Radio or stream mobile TV direct to the large screen. Whichever you choose to do, with the P1 you are never short of options.
The Sony Ericsson P1 is a Tri-Band GPRS 900/1800/1900 and UMTS 2100 handset with Wi-Fi 802.11b. It will be available in selected markets from Q3 2007.

SE has been gaining market share, but at a low rate. However, I would like to say that brand loyalty is a very strong factor in people's choice. I have been using both Nokia and SE and so did my friends and, although SE did prove to be more reliable and better functions, still my friends want to buy Nokia... why? Cause it's Nokia...it's cool.
My thought is that either of the other brands want to get ahead, they should come with something outstanding.
