The thing i hope the most is they get the firmware right this time, not like P990i and M600i when they were first released. At least the menu looks very fast on the video so far, much faster than even S60 in fact
Satya, we cannot prevent other phone fanboys to comment negative things about P1. But i think it has it's own dedicated fans and users that doesn't bothered with those things so the phone will speak on itself to them once it's released, note: SE developers team says: it's an improvement over the past UIQ 3 devices so whatever the problems found on P990 and M600 would not be an issue anymore with P1.
I agree with you. SE 3.2 camera (e.g. K800) is far better than the N95 5megapixel. Currently, I am using P990i and N95. When I compare photos taken from P990i and from N95 it's almost the same even on videos despite P990i has only 2Mpixel and 15fps video recording against N95 5Mpixel and 30fps video. My friend owned SE K800 3.2Mpixel camera and we compare the photos, K800 for me is better. So I believe those posts in N95 that it does not look like a 5Mpixel. Anyway, I am just enjoying my N95 but I am more happy with my P990i.
yeah, the screen is too small for PDA, i agree my axim x51v has 3.7 vga screen, and why SE is keeping with symbian, why dont they start working on Windows mobile phone??
Read the facts and don't pull numbers out of your a$$ just cuz you like this phone. Here's a story that took me 10 seconds to pull up with google: http://tech.monstersandcritics.com/news/article_1295243.php/More_Blu-ray_vs._HD-DVD_performance_confusion
Here's a quote from it if you're too lazy:
"Raby also takes the opportunity to highlight the failures endured by Sony in recent years regarding ambitious formats such as Betamax, Super Audio CD, Minidisc, UMD, and others: “You can count the number [of formats] that turned out to be big successes by, well, doing absolutely nothing. The answer is zero.”
With Blu Ray, Sony will once again fail. If you get this phone, you'll be stuck using the Memory stick... which you can't almost use in anything else other then Sony products.
Pretty nice phone for those who can afford it -_-;
Large phones doesn't appeal me anymore..
Why is it the camera lens is not Carl Ziess...
blu ray is winning hd dvds 9:2...and now the gap is even more....there is only 4 companies working with hd dvd and there is 88 companies working wid blu ray....jsut because u r a fan of hd dvd doesnt mean it will win...its already dead...read the facts....but u r right that m2 will like die out and stuff cause all pcs are moslty SD and some are pro duo
Don't you understand that "SE" is the only one that is able to give you 10hrs of your battery life. all the rest come short and they fall back. N it is Number 1 in sound stereo
-Memory Stick Micro... haha.. the whole world is using SD or micro SD and here comes Sony with it's proprietary format. Like Blu-Ray, it will fail against HD-DVD... all my friends and my laptop has a SD slot built in... just imagine the hassle of using a memory stick... I can stick my SD card in almost any PC, download music, programs, videos, etc, then stick it in my phone (ROKR E6) to enjoy...
I know u can use a cable or Bluetooth too but imagine having to always bring a cable with you or setting up bluetooth... Thanks Sony for another retarded invention...
Wauw, finale SE understood what they hade to do. Light weight, UMTS and WIFI including a camera. This will be my business phone! Small and compleet, for the rest i will use my HTC 7500.
2.6 inch screen is way too small for a PDA I think, my PDA has a 3.5 inch VGA screen and im not willing to downgrade to this, so difficult using the web on a screen like this.
why don't you focus your comment
on SE P1...
it's good to compare
but others tend to write more
on other brands or models...
hello. can i open the hotmail whit this phone direct from the mensages like whit windows mobile??????????????'
i may also recommend you to say something about the N95's cons so those "agressive" nokia fanboys could learn more things(other than just looking at the "specs on paper") than bashing and complaining while they haven't used the P1 yet.
may i also add my previous post:
with large capacity battery and fast processor E90 could be bigger and bigger once more, processor will end-up suffering from heating because of the frequency. pricewise it will be more expensive than it's communication competitor P1 will it prove it's price? lets give nokia a time to prove something once more.
this phone utlilizes the slower 208Mhz NEXPERIA processor which will probably bring "slow performance" on multitasking. then let me explain what i said about the time release is significant in developing phones performance:
see the reviews of the N91,3250 and N70 in which the reviewer mentions that the phone is slower than usual common mobile phones. at 176x208 and 220Mhz+ processor they will lag and halt? while review about P1 didn't mention anything about Lags and Halts even with the menu transitions were turned on and it's is a beta phone when they reviewed it a couple of weeks ago so does it's processor is slower than nokia then?
for those wh stare at the spec papers of the N95 and say it's better read this:
P1 vs N95:
P1's strength and N95's shortcomings:
-->Web browser: Nokia wins, but not too much. it's because the nokia browser is well implemented over the Opera 8 on P1i. first thing to mention was the absense of TS on nokia phones. it's browser is the best but doesn't it's navigation hinders the software's full capability? yes. with touchscreen you an navigate on the phone browser just like what you are doing with a normal desktop PC using mouse. TS can be either as functional or better han mouse in pointing acuraccy. nokia even needs to embeed some other features like minimap(which tells you where you are positioned because it is hard t point in and point out on a joystick or NAVI key than in touchscreen) in which SE do not need t implicate because the TS makes the advantage already. anyway does opera,firefox and IE have that feature? no, even though pages cannot be viewed in a single tap, the mouse makes sense in accuracy. similar with TS. and i forgot, why did nokia made N8800 whilst they already have that "incredible" web browser on their N and E series phones? answer, because TS always makes sense in navigation and S60 can't be equipped with touchscreen so far so they logically admit that they really lack the accuracy stuff. if we can use N8800 browser on P990 using application porting done by developers at SE. then nokia will take very good pressure o reevaluate their S60 E/N phones meant for business and multimedia with regards to true mobile internet experience.
-->Camera functionality, as we all know S60 has tons of applications, but i didn't still get the app that will innovate other OS phones like for example: drawing on the screen after a picture is taken, as far as i know N95 has 5mp camera so to be able o prove the worth manufacturer has to boost the features hardware-wise and software wise. hardwarewise, they lack 2 LED flash but instead only one in which it performs admirably but P1 has two leds similar to K750's module so we all know whos better with regards to low-light shooting; of course P1! even K800 which has xenon flash performs better. being a high-end TS smartphone P1 can allow software developers to create cooler applications like drawing onthe screen after picture has been taken, this feature is possessed by some TS cameras around and greatly shows people what TS advantages can offer more likely N-series cybershots from sony(N1,N2), T series (T50) and some pentax optio cameras. SE only proves that this feature was one of the reasons that tells how worth the price of P1 was. navigating in camera menu is also better thanks to TS capability, you can easily open submenus and settings faster as compared to the multiple finger-aching taps you have to done to achieve the good settings. at that price tag put by nokia on N95, you dont have that feature is it really worth it?
N95 wins but P1 strikes back on RAM performance which also defines better performance benchmarkwise P1 losses N95 wins but as a smartphone even it's a multimedia or enterprise type, multitasking is a must P1 can run multiple simultaneous applications at one time with the cost of some lags but not freezes as opposed to the N95 which runs programms efficient but can't overcome the scourge of program lags and shut offs. in P1 you'll deliberately experience lags but it's worth the wait because applications run very efficient. N95 being a smartphone that pricey should also be incorpoted with large RAM, future softwares apps that enormously ate RAM evidently kills it in no time while P1 survived, thanks to the RAM capacity. anyway i forgot nokia loves releasing successing models after months or weeks so we may see N96,N99 with 1Gb RAM and 1Ghz processor! those who have purchased N95 sorry, seems that your phone has just been left by the new successor and people wents "gaga" again on it's specs on paper.
P1 vs E90
P1's advantages in full communicator mode and E90's cons:
both shares the same RAM size processors define that E90 is faster, but is it really?
bear in mind that it's incredible screen is 800x352, so applications that are made utilizes that kind of screen rendering. question, with the help of the processor will it help E90 outperform P1's performance? lets see:
P1 renders applications in QVGA resolution 262K colors while E90 renders 800x352 resolution in 16M colors, if we remember even the 176x208(36608 pixels) resolution phones lags even at it's speed of 220Mhz so does the 100Mhz more in E90 can resolve the 128000 more pixels? E90 will slow down, as said into the review benchmark of this phone compared to QVGA phone i.e. N95, E61i bear in mind that the video chip TI OMAP 2420 uses the core speed of the processor instead of having it separatedly so the 16M is another feature that demands processor's resources more than P1's screen(262K) demands on it's NEXPERIA 208Mhz processor.
because of the large screen E90 also eats RAM higher than P1 does so the 128Mb would be enough to fit all the communication applications? not so, remember this is a communcator phone, multitasking is a must for an enterprise phone but in thi situation if nokia fails to perform admirably, then it's useless to have such a large and heavy body for communication.
if this was the case, nokia should either make it's processor 520Mhz to comply with the demands of the big bright display to render it very well(note even an XDA exec which uses intel bulverde 520Mhz with VGA display performs not so well) and have 2000mAh+ battery to accomodate the juice-thirsty processor to last even a day or more otherwise, it will suffer from constant low-power issues as laptops did.
Now who said P1 sucks? SE imho knows the real meaning of performance so they left unchaged some of it's hardware characteristics so users of P990 suffering from the scourge of RAM issues will see the dramatically big changes/improvements done by P1.
