hey guys, i just bought my p990 today, for a price of $1150 CAD. If you want a take a look at real pictures, just email me. The camera quality in my opinion is not so great, but the phone itself is very fast. For those of you that live in the Toronto area, i got my phone at Pacific Mall in Markham.
Hey man, you are in a mistake. S40 is a non OS plattform like SE A100 or SE common User Interface, like SE UI you cant install any aplication except java programs.
S80 are a revamped S60 customized to work with QWERTY and large screen, like nokias 9xxx communicators.
S90: this is the attempt of nokia to create a touchscreen interface, now it is off the road, nokia dont make S90 phones anymore.
This OS was the main attempt to compete with windows, linux and UiQ touchscreen enabled devices, but it was a real failure man!
For these facts touchscreens OS dont need a lot of versions like nokias S60-S80-S90, for example The latest P series beats anyone nokias 9xxx series.
The main difference between S60 and UiQ (take into account that both are symbian) is touchscreen and everything what that implies, and this is the reason of the TS OSs existence (windows, linux, UiQ)
you people are all kids!
fighting over a phone.
you guys didnt even built these phones you're fighting about. GROW UP KIDS!
why not exchage opinions on which phone will suit your lifestyle?
each phone is designed for specific type of person. if he bought this kind of phone and it doesnt have the features of what your phone has, so what?? meaning he doesnt need it thats why he bought his phone. so why critisize his phone?
these people posting here in the forum trying to attack someone because he bought that phone is such a baby and shallow.
no life. period.
you guys are really funny. evolve!
to no name saying symbian sucks based on his N70 exp:
symbian is an OS, if your pdf editor didn't satisfy you, it's the pdf editor problem, not symbian's. differenciate between OS and apps.
as you can't type fast enough with N70, that's not the phone's main purpose. get a qwerty keyboard phone such as E61.
s60 is not the only platform nokia has, s40, s80, s90. each is targeted for different market segment. as i know uiq has no variant. i don't know all those s?0 and uiq well enough, won't comment on the detail comparison.
aside from uiq touch screen and s60 non touch screen, do tell me what uiq can do and s60 cannot? what's the base of your opinion by saying s60 can't compare to uiq? it's all the apps! uiq and s60 is just a platform, what matters is the killer apps.
waooo.. the fight btw SE vs Nokia here is very very damm hott!!!! i like this.. ehueuheuheuheu... I got my fren who has N80 and she is a damm nokia freak, she used to say "nokia is the best".. who cares?
what is symbian? why everyone here talking about symbian as if it is a damn powerful device and it just can do everything. That's not quite true. I used to have N70. yes, it can view PDF, even i download the full version of the one that even can edit that. but WTH!!!! i did try once to wrote my essay on the bus, of course i can't use my computer's word, so i used N70's word. I find one biggest flaw of N70: the way tooo small keypad, that really slows me down and i simply cannot work fast. That's a waste of time man!!! its better for me to write it down, or to type it on the computer. It will only work best to view PDF or word, not the best tools to edit.
After that things happened to me, i ended up using my N70 as a dictionary and normal phone. So.. symbian phone? what's the strengths of the Nokia's S60 symbian? they just simply marketing gimmick, Nokias S60 is a total crap for me. Get the real symbian!! P990!! personally i find that N70 only function more as a normal phone for me, THEY ARE NOT A STRONG SYMBIAN, THEY ARE TOYS!! after that i had a look at my fren's P910.. what a smartphone... everything works more like a computer. Not like nokia's S60?? wth.. it just a normal phone for me. Now, even my K800 can have the exactly the same dictionary as my N70 did.. btw, after i use K800, i dun miss my N70 at all, and i actually regreted to take that, coz i had to pay soo much, and now if i sell it, the price will simply drop off. Who said Nokia has a better aftersale price than SE? No THEY ARE NOT!! I was quite dissapointed when i heard that my N70 is not valuable anymore.. and i only use it for 2 months. never buy Nokia's symbian!! Buy the real symbian, GO P990!!!!
I think that many SE and Nokia phones are released with the very very similar features. That's why everyone want to compare them.
I'll give you example :
W950i (but still not be released) vs N91
M600i/608 vs E61/60
K610i/m/618/V630 vs 6233/6234
K310i vs 6070
Z520i vs 6101
Z530i vs 6103
Z550i vs 6131
J230i vs 6030
Of course not all of them can be compared because most of Nokia phone use Symbian (I mean smartphone like 3250,N70,N72,N73 etc) while SE smartphone are only P series + M600 + W950i.
But we can compare partially like only music quality (for SE W810/800/700/900) and camera quality (for SE K750i,K510i,K800i/790i).
But for so far I see, if the price of them are similar than SE usually has more or better feature than Nokia. And if the feature is similar than SE usually has fewer price. (For example K750i vs 6230i)
But the last time I see also SE price sometimes too high. In my opinion like W810i and also this P990i.
I know that is an economical law. More people need and will buy it than the price shall high and if not than the price shall drop.

Wait a minute... I am using RSS to read a latest news... your N80 can do that ?...what ?... it can not ?... are you sure ?... wow... it is a pity...
OK... I sent you an office file... please open it and put your comment inside the document... what do you say ?... of course you need to edit it with your phone and send it back to me... what do you say again ?... CAN NOT ???... everything it can not do ?...
Why do you buy that phone !!...
hallo... hallo... aaah, it is you again... what ?... the battery is flat ?... I tought you had charge it this morning ?...
Want remote control ?... buy N80...
Want smartphone ?... buy P990...
Why so difficult ?...
Totally agree with Tarantula...
I owned N80... The phone fully charged in the morning, I use it for normal usage (about 30 - 45 minutes talk time) plus wifi connection to retrieve and send my POP3 email... and that's it... the battery is flat around 4 pm...
I never use it for play game, radio or listening to MP3... but 99% only for communication purposes... and frankly speaking, N80 is very slow... I don't know what's wrong with it...
Wohohohoho... Nokia Fans want to compare P990 with N80... my question... do you ever have N80 ?... if not, then please buy it... THE MOST LOUSY phone that ever had... Totally regret with this lousy plastic brick but expensive Nokia toy...
4 times I need to send back to the repair center within 6 weeks from date of purchase... I tought only it was only me... but another guy already send 6 times... wohoho... now you said because of uPnP it means that the stupid win at all ?...
As far as I know the phone doesnt come with any instant messaging software but a 3rd party program called Agile Messenger is available for UIQ 3 which supports MSN, yahoo, Aol, etc.
to tarantula,(im sorry if the spellings are wrong)
you 100 percent right and i know you are very intelligent that you figured out the nokia n SE and made the right choice. i wrote this message to appreiciatte you and make other people be confident and express their feelings bout SE and/or Nokia...
cheers to p990 cheers to SE cheers to ALL
to no name,
you did absolutely right by selling your n80
its just a snail which can slide and take photos and only wake 3 hours(i mean the battery power is poor)
N..NN..NNN83?? What the hell is that! Another mask rider toys or a high end torchlight. Go fly some kites people in nokia.
Kudos to SE engineers.
Upnp is newest standard and it will take a lot of time in set a REAL STANDARD in the industry man, maybe one day you can use your N80 to open your door, if the battery resist the task!!.
N80 is a POOR smartphone, it cant be compared to P990 because N80 is a piece of crap, UiQ is miles better than childish S60.
¿¿What do you do with a phone that have one day of life time??, or if you use WLAN for 20 minutes and N80 DIE!!.
Yes, N80 has more pixels in the screen but P990 has QVGA + TOUCHSCREEN, thing that nokia boys dont know.
Xpress print, what is it, here go with pict bridge.
P990 has Touchscreen, handwriting recognition, card and scanner dictionary, on screen keyboard, QWERTY keyboard, it is fast... and your glorious N80????
where is it?? ¿exist? ¿where is your turtle N80?
At least SE makes good phones, not like nokia that ships a lot of different models with unfinalized firmware and bugs, your long awaited N83 be the same case that N80, unfinalized smartphone with POOOOOR LIFETIME, a nest of BUGS... shame on you nokia!!!
I dont care about N80, I personnaly prefer Nokia N91 than N80 or P990 or K800.. Nokia N91 is the best complete smartphone on the market so far. Groove on the Go n91
