good cus i dont really like those phones, those are the least attractive se phones for me....
it's really nice to hear that...as those ( P5 and G702 ) were nothing new to the market and were expected to be failures!
so I think SE is doing a right decision ...
Go on SE and please bring some new fresh products like the C905 ..;)
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2008Good news for people. But bad news for SE: Rumor: Nokia to acquire HTC.looooooooooooooooooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllllllll
Ive been telling everyone for months now that the P5 must be cancelled. No company would bring out 2 phones to compete with each other, and since the xperia has been announced, the P5 had to go, obviously....
Good... finally the penny has dropped for SE. I hope they've finally realised that they have been churning out tosh recently. The specs for the P5 was pants, and possibly 12 months too late, and counting.
I fully support decision to cancel these models. They both have a bad design, old outdated platform, UIQ completely can't compete with other touch platforms and should be completely revised. SE just can't afford to send to market such bad looking phones with outdated platform and lose remaining fans. It was a right decision to cancel both.
Great news. Never like them be4 and also meaning SE will make another device to replace them. Yay
Good news for people.
But bad news for SE:
Rumor: Nokia to acquire HTC.
i'm a SE fan and i have to say that this is a good news because people started to hate P5 just from the specs, even it wasnt released yet, so i think that they will come out with smth better with some extra features
Wow good SE dont be like Nokia giving us ugly design,show them we are best for everything
The G702 did kinda have a copy cat d-pad, it was almost identical to that of the LG KE970 Shine (of course though, there are appearance differences). Plus is was quite ugly.
Good riddance, especially for P5. The blast from the past specs would surely be a humiliation more than anything else for SE, especially due to the fact that it's not even released yet and God knows how much longer it would take them to release it. I wonder what finally took them to realize this.
Wow. Just wow.
Nice marketing ploy carefully played out by a monopolistic giant such as Sony.
People have been waiting for more than ONE YEAR for its release, then they cancel it, after they got all the hype and attention and earned BILLIONS of bucks from the 'average consumer'.
Never will I touch any garbage labeled with Sony. EVER. (except maybe for PS3)
Same thing goes for Apple. Marketing gimiks to attract the willing extravagant kids who know nothing about technology these days.
Advice for SE!!!!
Presently I am using SE p1. This is great phone. I like it. My simple advice to R&D of SE for future P5 is that.....just give some tweaks to existing P1. I mean softwarewise...just add gps, hspda & 5mp camera. Hardwarewise....same P1 design but add navigation & soft keys in the middle like G900. And of course put lens cover for camera. THAT'S IT......you are on the roll. I am pretty sure it would be super hit.
I am SE fan and was always wondering why the hell SE is coming out with this ugly looking phones with average specs. Now I am very happy that they decided to drop out both P5 & G702. Both of them don't deserve to be SE flagship. I hope they learn some lesson from nokia and come out sth like C905. I wish they come out with one solid - complete - well-built mobile phone. I think pple won't mind throwing away extra a couple of hundred dollars on phone especially manufactured by SE. Come on buck up!!!
Being SE fan, I hate to say that I've fallen in love with nokia e66. I am keeping my fingers acrossed but I can't wait long. If they dont come out with sth new ...I'll be forced to buy nokia E66.
