Listen just because this phone lacks VGA 30FPS video does not mean its worse than N82.
But.. but then how we install 3rd party solution for the GPS-enabled devices ? Any other better than already marketed ?
N82's design and built quality has a lot of issues such as creaking sound around the keypad area and softkeys, specifically where the "c" button is located.

Say what you want but this phone ROCKS. Camera better, and a lot of other features. I... moreFeature and Design wise..
This phone fails to beat N82
How much more against N95 and N96?
Its all about totality of the phone that makes one a hit among buyers..not just on one aspect.
What more can C905 offer aside from the camera where N82 N95 and N96 are good at as well, nothing...
Say what you want but this phone ROCKS. Camera better, and a lot of other features. If you want a smart phone than you should go for Xperia x1, or you can stay with this phone which offers great camera,wi-fi, great design, great interface, great batery and great sound too
well, i have and still do own SE P910i and a P990i, and both appear indestructible! bought in singapore and china respectively. i do not see problem with SE. only thing and reason i would not buy this cellphone (C905) is that it does not have a QWERTY keypad; this is mistake they have made for us of the older generation! (60 i is)
M/\K, 09 Jul 2008yea, i have seen the long specs of N82 dude, i OWN that phone so I'm not talkin trash here. An... moreCompare both N82 and C905

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Sony Ericsson: Doomed To Be The Next Motorola?
By Dianne See Morrison - Tue 01 Jul 2008 03:47 AM PST
You know you’re in trouble when industry pundits start comparing you to Motorola (NYSE: MOT). That’s the fate that’s befallen Sony (NYSE: SNE) Ericsson, the joint venture between Japanese electronics maker Sony, and Swedish telecoms equipment maker Ericsson (NSDQ: ERIC). Once riding high on handsets built around Sony’s Walkman brand, it has since fallen to the number five handset maker in the world, after being overtaken by Korean rival LG (SEO: 066570) in the first quarter. Even worse, the company has been forced to issue two profit warnings this year. The last one, on June 28, warned that slowing handsets sales and delays in new products would mean the company would break even at best in the second quarter. How bad is it? In Q1 2007, Sony Ericsson posted global sales growth of 67 percent. In Q1 2008, that same figure was a mere 2 percent.
Businessweek takes a closer look at what’s going wrong for Sony Ericsson, and concludes some of the problems are due to economic pressures affecting the entire industry, and some are self inflicted.
First off, mobile phone sales across the industry are going south, as the economy puts pressure on people’s pocketbooks across the world. Sony Ericsson relies on consumers in emerging markets to trade up to a fancier phone, but many are hanging to their old handsets for longer.
Sony Ericsson, too, has also made mistakes. Unlike its Finnish rival, Nokia (NYSE: NOK), it hasn’t tried to “spread its bets” around the globe, but relies heavily on Western Europe for sales. Not a good move when analysts are calling it the “weakest globally today.”
It has also missed the market’s biggest growth area—the low end of the market—with its concentration on mid-to-high end phones. But then, given its size, it hasn’t been able to get Nokia’s scale and distribution—necessary if you want to enter emerging markets.
It’s also been stuck in a rut with its products—all the while its old rivals and new ones like Apple and HTC--have been busy pumping out every imaginable phone iteration possible. In a mistake Nokia made in the North American market and is still trying to fix, Sony Ericsson has stuck to the classic candy bar shape, while Samsung and LG especially have been churning out clamshells, sliders, and touchscreens. Lastly, the pressure is on for Sony Ericsson to figure out how to get revenues from added services, like Nokia and Apple (NSDQ: AAPL).
So what’s Sony Ericsson doing to stop the slide? It struck a deal with French electronics maker Sagem last year to produce entry level phones, but products from the tie-up won’t come out till later this year. The company is also hoping Nokia’s decision to buy and set Symbian free will give it a much-needed boost. First, it won’t have to pay royalties anymore –which added up in the millions of dollars. The new Symbian platform will also use a software interface designed and used by Sony Ericsson that will make it easier for it to create entry-level models. The handset maker has also made headway in the North American and South American markets with better distribution deals.
fonefenatik, 09 Jul 2008SYMBIAN is owned ball all major mobile makers not just nokiaread the news friend.. im sad that you dont know about it. anyways SE can still shift to Windows Mobile if they want to but I dont think they'll do that right now with sales falling down in Q2 2008.
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2008oh copying is that? who copied the music edition? who copied the xenon flash. k800 had a xenon... morethen who made mobile phones first? SE or Nokia..thats a major copy cat issue.
SE should bow down to Nokia being the new owner of Symbian or if not, they'll have to make their own operating system instead. hahaha
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2008oh copying is that? who copied the music edition? who copied the xenon flash. k800 had a xenon... moreAre you forgetting the Nokia 6233
K800i was the first Xenon Flash phone...
Nokia hasnt copied much...
Nokia had MP3 Players and Camera and Memory Card slots before SE
Nokia 6230 came out in 2003 that had MP3 Player, Camera, Memory card
and that is 2003 !
SE was making K700i which just had VGA Camera..
