err... Lami.. i am quite concerned with your statement saying that nokia fans will always be nokia fans. To be honest, that is not always the case. I used to use nokia but i am not really a nokia fans. I am more of a sony ericsson fans. And btw, P990 is more of a smartphones since it operates using Symbian OS, not windows OS (which is the clear separations between PDA and Smartphone). PDA usually will have RAM as well (in which case, P990 does not have RAM). ^_^.. just want to rectify a little bit (excuse me if i am being impolite for doing so)
Pv9c guy... well.. from the way you speak, it seems like you underestimate the importance of battery life. Just to let you know because i had a terribly bad experience about a battery life (that really pissed me off). I used to be in the 3 in 2003, when the phone was only produced by japanese company NEC. I had this really bulky 3G phones and the battery only last a day (just mainly for standby). I just want to tell you, i charged the phones in the morning and by evening you have like only one bar left and you know that you will have to recharged the battery (although you only use for a lil bit of smsing and calling, mostly standby).
I have once was in the evening party with my fren, and realise that i have this phone dying because of the battery life strictly limited to one day. After that experience, i swear to myself: I WOULD NEVER EVER BUY PHONES WITH A VERY SHORT BATTERY LIFE. No matter how cool the feature is (remember? in 2003, phones with video call ability was considered to be an elite one), the best phone is the one that can serve its purpose as a communicator device in the time when you need it. In this case, i believe N80 wouldn't perform as bad as that phone, however, i would rather to find phones that has a longer battery life ^_^. Cheers mate.
That's not true .. when it comes for the release date , SE always come first if we compare with Nokia models. Usually when SE announced its' new model , the phones will be available next quarter. The P990 model is different case, since they're upgrading the features. For those who dun know , there're 4 quarters a year , and this model falls between june to sept( maybe ).
its all funny you guys Cmon this phone is going to way to expensive.. specialy 4 the dutch, belgum, and german market.. its a shame S.E. dousnt think about that.. they should make affortable phone's
k790 & k800 both have same camera quality and video quality which is. . .
220x176 @ 15 frame/sec
hold your breath friends . . . . . . . .
k800 video capture resolution is . . . . . . . . 220x176
this is because SE is going to launch higher videos resolution phones for the next range maybe k900 or k990
i particularly beleive that k790 & k800 hardware is capable of capturing 320x240 and they are just a flash of firmware away to capture high resolution video
i hope specs change till release
So the battery only is important for calls??? Lol, try to use all the wifi and other stuff from n80 and you´ll see where the bat life goes
So the P990 is a PDA??? lol the P990 (like w950) is a proper smartphone, not a kids smartphone like nokia s60´s toys
let's just settle this debate. if u want ease of use and user friendliness - n80. if u want superb quality music and top of the range camera - k800. I personally prefer the k800 because of the cybershot and the mem stick micro. the music quality is also brilliant.
sony is releasing an assload of nice phones but all of them are coming soon. im getting really impatient! ahh.. its torture...
trust me ..you will buy another one in like 2 or 3 yrs =)
Can anyone tell me if K800 shoots video at what speed ?. Is it 15 fps or 30 fps like W900
you really can't compare the nokia n80 with this. the nokia n80 have like BEATS this one hands down. in everyfield
screen + more resolution
connectivity + wifi + EDGE + DUAL BAND UTMS QUADBAND GSM.
Multimedia/Customizing = SYMBIAN S60. (limitless features)
the only thing this one have advance. its the camera. maybe the battery life (which is not much) i really don't imagine someone talking more than 4 hours a day.
and if you take the design into account. (thats taste really) but the n80 is hotter.
i am sorry about my mistake. i actually meant which was the difference between k800 and k790 in your personal opinion which one's better. thanks!
Man what were they thinking, this phone's ugly as sin, and no EDGE! I wish SE would hurry up and bring out something decent, all their 2006 phones have been crap!
There is a difference between Cell phones, Smart phones, and PDA phones. They are all typically the same with the main features of communication available. But let me clarify what a PDA is:
PDAs incorporate handwriting and/or voice recognition features. PDAs also are called palmtops, handheld computers, and pocket computers Hence (QWERTY keypad).
Although there might be a very thin line between the definitions of PDA and smartphones, the N80 clearly falls under smartphone and the P990 is clearly a PDA!
When some where crying over what was better N80 or K800 i clearly said they are comparing apples and orranges. One is an amazing phone with great multimedia, and the other is an amzing multimedia with a great phone! People's choice :)
When you are comparing the P990 with the N80, you are clearing comparing apples and peanuts.
This is all just way too pethetic. And yes i do think the N80, K800 and the P990 as amazing handsets! Like i said, a matter of choice and brand preference! PERIOD.
Nokia fans sucks. This phone is better than almosy ANY Nokia one (don't consider smarphones, SE 990 kick Nokia N90 ass). Also, the better desings are from SE, not Nokia.
can anyone tell me more about the external memory of the k800i plz?? gsm arena has not mentioned it... i just want 2 know the memory space in the memory stick micro..
