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.
buy the phone with the features you need,
and not just because it's the "in" phone...
p1 meets all those features you need for sure!
what do you really need in your phone?
my W880 fits all my preferences
in a walkman,
my K800 Cybershot 007 edition satisfies my
need for a cam-fon...
P1 seems great to be my smart phone.
i don't fancy slide phones anymore
after i tried Samsung D600..
P1's design is great for me
and so with its features.
actually its sharp who has the BEST and PERFECT camera.....maybe u should chk out the softbank 910sh phone....
nobody can get flawless phone..
just have the phone with your needed features,
anyway one doesn't need every feature
created by phone companies.
features just to make you feel good
without the need of using it?
you tried this phone "yesterday"
i'd like to go try it too.
so i'll know if i really have to let go
one of my SE phones.
my latest is W880i.
i need smartphone now
compare Nokia N95 camera with Sony Ericsson Camera 3.2. Sony got the best quality in camera.
hi bro you all seem to give the same spec that gsmarena has given i know there could not be any thing moreeee. i looking forward for this but i have to wait right now i have p990 i am happy but only have few complaints. after all you cannot get any thing flawless in this world.
you said it all...
bravo SE P1 !!
guys, how can you argue with Satya?
haha? n95 got what problems oh?
name the problems please? lmao.
and its wifi is B where is the G eh?

You can imagine the popularity and craze of Sony Ericsson when Nokia people match it with N95.

Network….People ask it doesn’t have HSDPA or 3.5G. Tell me one thing How many countries have 3.5 technology? How many people have enough money to download/ stream videos through mobile internet? Let me tell you for normal web page browsing GPRS is more then enough like checking e-Mails, Orkut/My Space, Blogs etc. Even GPRS is costly in many countries so opting HSDPA is beyond imagination for Higher-Middle class people. If you really fancy for faster speed then 3G works fine. Just to watch a small video you need HSDPA. The video that you can transfer to your mobile phone via Computer. If you are a hardcore 24 hours internet video watcher then let me tell you clearly that weather you use Nokia or SONY Ericsson or anything else; your phone will be heated up soon and it will be finished in some months and above all you can not match the experience of watching video on a bigger screen rather then on any mobile phone. As far as EDGE is concerned it was deployed in some countries but now mobile operators are converting their networks to 3G. Triband is enough to roam internationally.
GPS ….You can download GPS applications like Wayfinder. GPS is not a big deal for Sony and Ericsson. Read the Review of N 95 at GSM Arena and you will get to know the reality of N95 GPS.
Camera….I don’t think I have to write anything here. Open K800i GSM Arena homepage and read the comparison at left pane of the web page. Never say to anyone that Nokia or anyone else has a better picture quality then Sony otherwise people will laugh on you .
if you have K800 and you somehow do not get right picture of your choice that means you still haven’t read the Manual supplied and you still do not have command over provided camera controls and techniques. Clear your concepts.
As far as comparison between 3 MP and 5MP is concerned; go to any Digital Camera Help site there.. Ask question to any of the professionals and they will tell you that weather you have 3MP or 5MP camera, both picture qualities are APPROXIMATELY same unless you are a professional photographer.
And tell me one thing if you are a professional photographer why would you choose a mobile phone camera. You would rather choose Digital Camera. Am I right ? and last not but the least “ More Megapixels means More memory/ Heavy picture in terms of size “.
Sound quality….do I need to discuss it ? Radio has RDS. Lots of countries are using RDS Technology -> http://www.rdslist.com/
Screen Colors and Speed….All Sony Ericsson phones have better picture/screen color quality in their class. Take K700i phone and match it with any Nokia phone. Or just say see the same picture in Sony Ericsson and Nokia. You will see the difference. Try it. This is a challenge. I have tried various N series and normal S60 phones and let me tell you they take substantial time when you open anything from picture to applications or simply a shortcut. If Sony has decided to continue a particular processor and OS then there must be some reason for it.
Remember SONY make Vaio, Cybershot, Alpha , Walkman, Vega, Bravia and lot more things including GPS devices. . Go to www.sony.com so they have expertise and experience. Ericsson has it’s own expertise . They do not use low quality material. So they are little expensive. P1 is not slider because heavy use can loose its slider. Don’t get rude. It’s a fact. Some Walkman phones have slider but to play walkman you don’t need to open it because music keys can be used without opening it. Fossil's MBW-100 Bluetooth watch is supported by Sony Ericsson.
And please Don’t compare it with N95. Sony Ericsson has it’s own class.
if the first link is not opening that kindly go to Sony Ericsson P1 page and select "application".
Kindly Attention....if you think that there should be GPS in your P1 then you can downlaod that application. GPS is not a big deal. Please Click here to Read more :-
