Mmm...although the keyboard is awkward this phone has excellent form! It is so enticeing. It feels and looks attractive. Far better looks than a Palm Treo 680, Blackberry Curve or Nokia E61i! For me the keyboard is too restrictive to type fast and accurately but if the user has small and nimble fingers perhaps it can be mastered. I believe that SE chose form over function...some people cannot stand to carry phones that are too wide. The question is if SE had increased the width by only half a centimetre they would have been able to implement a QWERTY with one key per letter like the Blackberry Curve and Palm Treo 680. Typing would have been alot easier for a broader range of hands. Furthermore the screen could now be placed in landscape mode while typing. I do not believe that half a centimetre would have turned the phone into a brick but perhaps SE thought otherwise!
Oh come off it guys; the keyboard is ridiculous! There is no way one can type fast with this keyboard. The keys are too small and the rocker system of two letters sharing the same key too restrictive. In the last 100 years humanity has become taller not smaller. How on earth is an adult supposed to type with speed?? The keypad is built for baby sized fingers!! It is interesting that the width of the device is only half a centimetre narrower than the Palm Treo 680 and Blackberry Curve and yet they managed to attain one key for one letter. Their keypads are far superior to the SE.
I text alot so unfortunately I will have to give the P1i a miss.
The sound volume is loud enough. It will not make you deaf and will not make you feel like a deaf.
The camera on P1 is not that worse compared to that of k800, it even takes better macro shots than k800 albeit the xenon flash. I can say that the processor is kinda slow but its enough. But when apps are open in the tasks mangr u can switch tasks in zip. Just leave commonly used apps like contacts, mssging,calendar,office open in the task mangr. Man, I havent had any hangs or restarts (even when there are many apps open) since I used P1i in almost 2mos.
Dear P1 users, just want to ask is to how loud is the sound from the speakers of P1i? I am planning to buy one but I need to find out if it is loud enough to listen to mp3 and while using the radio. Thanks!
as i read the opinion of some users, i see that some of them are having problems in their P9i. I also want to buy one but as far as comments and suggestion are concern im having difficulties in making a decision. is there a good heart that can help me decide if it is worth buying a P9i?
Got my P1i 2day ago...I have problem with the touchscreen....actually the touch screen work fine but there is one area it's not working when I try to tap it...That area is in the bottom where is say "call" "expand" "more" or anytime i try to open a apllication i can't tap on "open" or " close" it.......
Therefore I can't do anything with my fone :(
finally got my hands on P1i in a sony ericsson showroom. The phone is having lot's of features but is very slow. it took P1i ages to boot and then it couldn't keep up to speed. i don't know will it fare on multitasking. i think sony ericsson should have put a higher processor!
I didnt have any txt msgs in my inbox until i restarted my phone. I think something serious wrong with my phone.

I have a P1i for one month.The disadvantages of
this mobile are
- Camera is much worse than k800
- there is no Stereo output as on P900
- sort number of alarm clocks
- cpu is some slow
- The screen saver can not fill all the screen
- the jog-dial is not 5 direction as in P900
- difficult keyboard - small keys
- there is no other key to take a picture or
- you can not transfer files via WiFi
- you can not set lock time
-does not have the clock screen saver as P900
and you can not set time for the screen saver
-In general software lacks many abilities
maybe u have too many msgs in ur inbox. if it reaches more than 1000 msgs, u should delete some or move them to another folder.
hope this helps.
