muj, 09 Jun 2008Ok i know this has been asked oh so many times and i have been trying to put off asking this f... moreive heard the release date was pushed back til the 19th of june in the uk..dont quote me on it tho
Ok i know this has been asked oh so many times and i have been trying to put off asking this for so long, but when is it going to be released in the UK on a contract.
About 2 months ago some websites mentioned 2nd June, but this information has disappeared, and now the best information i can get hold of is July 2008.
Anyone know the official release date or has a better idea? Cannot wait for this phone any longer!!!
lol, i'm like trying to find every little excuse to purchase this phone, but what's the point of buying a cell phone that won't make calls reliably.
Anybody got hands on a final version of this phone? How's the camera acting?
i like G900 but i need a phone with GPS receiver & TV broadcast receiver, what about N96?!
what about it`s price?

But we travel a lot so I could use it anyway. But, the slowness forme is totally unacceptable.
You may have a different expectations - especially since I put it down so badly - but for me is just not good enough.
Go try it. I respect your opinion based on experience and personal preference.
sigh..lol when i read victors comment i got so excited..
I have ATT so most likely the G900 won't work out for me =[[[[
WHY SE WHY
it sounds an awful lot like you actually like this phone, and are incredibly sour about the fact that it doesn't work where you live.
This isn't some forum for 12 yr olds, people like myself would like to learn unbiased opinions on this phone.
It does seem slow, I'm a bit put off, will go see it in the shops sometime this week and post the verdict :)

Please before you give advice get informed:
You are correct: ATT/Cingular uses 850MHz towers.
INCORRECT: T-Mobil has contract with ATT/Cingular and often uses ATT/Cingular towers!!!!!
Any phone in the US without 850MHz may have trouble giving reliable service!!!!!
SE should consider to make at least their intended high-end phones quad!!!!!
It is a huge mistake that the G900 not a quad phone!!!!! (anybody who travels US areas)

I am quite disappointed by the new SE phones. I expect SE will soon stop making phones, and follow the descending path of Motorola or Philips.
On the contrary LG is coming up very fast with very good phones
If you have a T-MOBILE, this phone will work just fine. however, if you have ATT/Cingular, you'll have problem to get signals in most areas.
ATT works with the 850 mhz band.
gavster, 08 Jun 2008??? that's not even responsive to my statements. If you are talking about the screen, I was re... moreThis is absolutely the flagship of SE!!!
The XPEDIA X1 is not out!!!!
But even when it is out, it has no chance to generate a huge sales since it will be very expensive, and a large phone.
This phone suppose to be the best featured everyday phone.
The CPU is not just ˝not the best˝ but a huge mistake!!!!! SE cheapness and greed screwed up this phone all potential success.
Go and try it! It is slow in every way! Some setting adjustment takes seconds!!!
IT is also overpriced!!!!!
But, I agree: the price will drop relatively fast - people will find out the negatives and SE´s reliability issues.
(BTW - it is absolutely unacceptable that this is only triband while C902 and many other phones Quads!!!!)
This phone does not work FINE in the US!!!!!
Please do not misinform people!!!!!
G900 is very good when reading the specifications, Actually it is missing very common tasks like, One touch Contacts button. We need to to thru menus to get to Contact and search for a person. Its really hard when driving.
Other thing it does not have very good search, If I enter "Thomson", it would only give results which starts with 'thomson', it will not find 'Victoria thomson'.
I think Sony sould not ommit things like this!!!!
I personaly think that this phone has got some great features, having used the SE M600i myself and being thoroughly convinced, I am waiting to buy the G900 ( price being a little high ). For a person who has used the communicator and the SE smart phone, I think the phone is of good spec. Especially the notes which can be saved on screen. Will give more feedback once I have my hands on it.
Let me say this: if you like this phone, please try it. Most shops allow you to use it for a test drive. for example here in the U.K, i would go into a shop, ask the staff to let me test drive the phone and if i wanted to check out the camera, music capabilities, blogging etc the staff would be happy to help. Go to your local store and a member of staff would be happy to give you a demo; be prepared for the sales pitch though;)
