I got mine 1 week ago, I cant stop playing with the phone. 1 major drawback is when you'll be using WIFI, the battery life DROPS DOWN significantly !!! Why didnt the reviews mentioned this b4.. it's very disapointing.... + over all, its says that talking time is estimated 9 hours, well, i think it's crap, I'm not a heavy talker over the phone, but I need to charge the battery evrery 2nd day! FYI, I use GSM network only, no 3G available yet in canada.
Can anyone plz tell me how to maximize the battery life>????
Has anyone already tried to place tomtom mobile(or similar)on this phone?
please let me know! I want a device wich has it all GPS,Phone,Music,.....
Mark, you said that you got your p990 with a 2 gb card for $800 USD. From where? Thats a great deal.
For all O2 customers
P990i is currently due on the 13 September 2006 (subject to change).
Price for upgrade will be approx. £250 (obviously depending on monthly spend, etc.)
Hopefully, it will be worth the wait!
whoa! thats a lot of money..yeah i suggest you wait for the price to lower a bit..and who knows, by then the bugs might be fixed with the upgrades.. just give the phone a chance to impress you..and i have to say that the business card scanner on the p990 is awesome..i just take a picture of the card and the phone will automatically seperate the names and numbers and file it to your contact list..
Thanks Mark,so i guess i will get P990 then...when the price goes a bit down,its about 800 euros here now.
yakuzah- you cannot take pictures with the front mount camera.. the speed of the gprs in the u.s. depends on your service provider,tmobile,cingular..it doesnt have edge. but it is 3g and cingular is starting to offer 3g in the u.s.
Thos who have the phone
can u take photos with the front camera of the p990i?
and how fast is the gprs in the us , when the phone not support EDGE?
Hey guys, for those who own one, please help to write the pro and con or bugs. I was thinking of getting one, but not too sure how is the performance. Please help. Many thanks!
peter, in regards to the keypad, i had a benq p50 before and i compare the keypad of the 990i to that..but the 990's keypad is a little bit smaller..if your hands arent too big you shouldnt have a problem with it.. its clear at night as it is illuminated by a blue light. there are a few bugs here and there, but its something you can live with with new firmware upgrades..people just arent giving this phone a chance because it came out so late..as far as the talk if the p1000, i really dont think sony will disrupt the market base knowing that the 990 has just been released. im sure we will all have to wait for awhile before it is available.
$7 price drop for SE P990i at plemix.com
New lowest price on the web $792
can anyone tell the P990 havent release all over the world ,but some people already said that seen P1000? does it true? hope can post the website ,lets us share.
Thanks for your help Mark!I have for several years now P900 and i'll probably take P990 cause i am already very much used to its "older bro".Can u just tell me whats the quality of qwerty keyboard on P990?(Cause i type a lot,and P900 with its virtual keyboard is really becomming a problem for me)
peter, ive had the htc tytn/ qtek 9600 for about a week now, and the p990i for a little over a day..heres my breakdown of the 2 units in simple terms.. p990i- awesome screen resolution, good camera and video recording, and most important it has a number pad.. all other things like connectivity, processor speed, 3rd party software,keypad, touchscreen sensitivity etc. the tytn/ qtek is by far much better..but if you are an avid texter like me, who likes texting without looking down at the keypad every second, the p990i is a better choice..build quality, the qtek feels more solid. but playing back videos and watching movies is more pleasant on the sony. i have yet to try the video calling feature on either phone so i cant comment on that..but neither unit can use the front camera to take pics..its only for video calls..also, i cant get my sony to play wma music files for some reason. id give the tytn/ qtek a rating of 9/10..p990 7/10..if there was more software available for the p990 my rating would be higher. by the way, i purchased the p990 for $800usd with a 2gb memcard..awesome deal for me..hope that answers some of your questions..
Shabbir, if u have waited so long, wait for a few more days. As I said earlier it will be out in retail on 29th. I actually handled 1 piece today at my Mumbai retailer ....looks and feels great !
Dear “New Comer”
Thanks for your Explanation on the Outlook. One of the Reasons I’m interested on this phone, is that I need to keep my address book, and have a telephone at the same time. At present when I travel I have to carry 2 electronic gadgets with me, my phone and a pocket PC with all my contacts and their addresses. Before each travel trip, I synchronize my office computer address book ie MS Outlook with my pocket PC. As I understand from your explanation I will be able to do the same with the SE990i, is that correct?
I am thinking to get HTC TyTN(Qtek 9600) or SE P990,i wonder if somebody tried both of them and can compare them?Thanks!
