I own this phone. u can install applications built for uiq, and run java software. things that suck about this is that by default u cant close applications, there is no X button. instead i downloaded a third party program to do this. the camera is 0.3 mpx and very grainy. perhaps the most disappointing thing i have come to experience is the extremely slow transfer rate of bluetooth/irda/or even the usb sync! at SERIAL rates of 115,000 kbps (14 K/s) or so. it makes fulling a 1gb memory stick duo pro a lesson of patience! the screen quality is very good, however it runs 262,144 colors at fullscreen only i believe, at 65k out of fs. bluetooth range is good. the processor is also slow. at 153 or so mhz ARM9. ideally you dont want to have to wait for tasks to process while u r on a mobile. that is for desktop pcs. it should of come with a more powerful processor, 624mhz Xscale or something. internal/external storage performance is good. keyboard is very small but my hand isnt gorilla either so i can use it faster than any other method. i like it. it's sexy enuf for me.
this is my first time owning a pda phone. i just bought this phone like 2 weeks ago. it took me total of 3 days to learn everything about this phone's function. sync. handwriting, etc.
i must say, that i am very impress with this phone, i dont think i will ever switch back to those normal phones ever again.
Things i like about the phone:
1) the keypad, helps me write faster in sms
2)jotter program which aids in note taking
3)acts like a pda (organiser)
Things i dont like about the phone:
1)expensive (same price as O2 mini and yet O2 mini has better specs)
2) the sound is ok only, not great, the sound could be better.
3) currently no chinese character programs, so cannot read chinese character sms
4)Symbian OS....i would prefer windows base programs..more practical and more programs available to download
overall this is a very good phone..i would say one of the best, but before you consider buying this phone, i would advise you to look into O2 mini too...hope this helps
Hello, I just bought my p910i yesterday. Yes, the screen is 262K, definitely better than the 65k. It has everything, you name it! You can also download applications to the phone. overall, you wont regret buying it!....
HELLO,I am going to buy a P910i but please can any user tell me if the display resolution is better than p900,I mean if it is better than 64k?????Which one is more advanced 64k or 256k?Is this phone resolution truly 256k?please let me know it very soooonnn because in the user guide it is not mentioned.Is it powerful enough????Please let me know i want an expert opinion.Pleaseeeeee.
can't decide btw Treo 650 and Sony P910...which one works better with a Mac...??....please, help me....
J, that's not my question. It's Shyam's question. I was asking is this phone is better than o2 XDA Mini & Nokia 7710.
@ Sony Extremer
The phone does not support a memory card, it supports a Sony memory stick. The capcity it supports is as follows.
P910 supports Memory Stick Duo Pro up to 1GB and Memory Stick Duo up to 128MB
The P910 can't run microsoft excel, however it has an application called Quickoffice which includes Quickword and Quicksheet. Quickword allows you to view and edit microsoft word documents, while quicksheet allows you to do the same with excel documents. The application itselft isn't microsoft excel though, it is Quicksheet.
the data speed transfer is kinda weak (32 - to 40 kbps), compared to the other new sony ericsson phones (z800, 384 kbps (UMTS)).
is there any software that can upgrade for that?
I think everyone who says anything bad about this handset are the ones who cant afford it!
Dont bag out a fone you have never used before you tight wads! I have the P910i and i have had no dramas with it! cant wait for the next one!
i asked one passenger how satisfied he is with the performance of his P910i. he just told me that HE CAN'T SEEM TO SYNC HIS OUTLOOK CALENDAR with his phone. other than that he is satisfied. i asked one captain about this as well and he said he can't seem to do the same. i guess i will wait a little while before i buy this model. good thing my order on the net was void because there was a problem with the requirements.
if u guys think that this phone doesn't hv a gd camera, then u all should buy a digital camera since nobody will use "cell-phone" to capture picture and print it. i think SE P910 beats all the phone from any company.
I absolutely LOVE this phone. Yes, it is a bit bulky, but once I got used to that, I find this handset to be great. I have a 512 mb memory card in it and have loads of mp3's and piccies on the card. A totally use all the features, and I even really dig on the handwriting recognition, as I suck at texting. I think some people are just never happy. It is a really good phone.
ra ra ra ra...why is it that S.E is so intent on cramming as much as they can into a unit with total disregard for current/previous faults? You'd think that p800 faults would have been addressed. Example? aight, with the p800, when you "opened" a menu item, ie, calender, you had no option to "close" that item. ie: file>close. So the whatever you opened sat in open status and ate up valuable RAM, which is why ALL the p series get slower as you use them!! to prove this, download a neat little task manager from www.my-symbian.com and next time you run the task manager, you'll see everything that you have already used is still open in the background. There is virtually no way to close say, messages. To "exit" an application/item you simply hit the menu button...which is just "minimizing" the application really. This is not an issue with a normal phone. But running a Symbian environment means these phones can multitask, just like windows. So it's essential to have an option to "close" a menu item.
I have the P910a, since about one month I have the problem which is; when the battery reachs about the 50%, the indicator starts showing empty and the phone keeps working.
Anybody knows the reason and the cure?
