First of all the N80 is an embarrassment to nokia where the N73 is a hundred times better especially as a camera phone which makes the N80 a disgrace to hold the name 3.2 mega pixel phone . So definitely the se p990 is going to be better , and by the way any smart phone with Bluetooth can do all this crap that u are talking about remote control garage etc. NOTHING TO BRAG ABOUT
SE is targetting a niche of customers, such as the folks who replied back to my N80 vs P990 comparaison. Im glad to see these folks spending a baziling amount of $ for such an ugly plastic brick, outdated, no hard drive, comes with 64 MB( COME ON!!!!!!!!!), Screen resolution 240 x 320 pixels 240, N80, the best screen in the market 352 x 416 pixels w, UPNP ( u can control your garage door, TV, fridge, Stero HIFI, ... ll from the N 80, it acts as wirless remote controle.. YES BABY!!! Sony NONE, SE none, Xpress print, SE none,
Buttom Line Nokia engineers are far far ahead on SE...
Dear friends, Stay tuned for more feedback regarding the upcoming N83 ( relase date early Q1, 2k7 hopefully )!!
The truth is SE waited too long before releasing this phone. I was prepared to buy this phone at full price as far back as Dec 2005. Now, other guys have caught up with better features and design.
If you can live without a camera, check out Nokia e61 which is available for less than 1/2 price (street price $400 USD). If you want one with a 2MP camera, try Nokia e70 (street price $500). Simply do a feature by feature comparison.
Like the other guy said, don't kid yourself about this phone.
i think Sony is great move for ericsson.b,coz song brings great cammras,and great sound in mobile tec
Any idea on the availability of the P990i in India ? India web site has removed the 'coming soon' tag almost 10 days ago ... but still no luck. SE India call centre refused to give any date - keep contacting the SE shops !
true enough this p990i is a little outdated as to compare with the few best around like k800i & W810i , but i believe those as a fan of the p series would really want to get a hold on it . i am just a little disappointed about the 3 way scroll instad of the 5 way like p910i . Actually if the 2mp camera & flash were to be on p910i & named it like P910i special edition , hey , i am going to get it without considering much . anyway , going give this phone a try .
hey ppl.. to be honest P990 is outdated.. 2mp camera(n80 3.2mp), no EDGE(n8o has),no UPnP(n80 has)...etc. cmon guys see the difference.. dont deceive yourself..
i'm really impressed by some of the phones' casing model design by SE (P990 casing design doesn't impressed me:). The Walkman and Cybershot concept is really great. No comment about the user friendlyness of the software as i haven't own a SE yet.
Nokia's casing design is very formal and maybe a little clumsy. N73 is supposed to be an entertainment phone but the casing design is so.. 'square'. But i like the software side of Nokia. i'm currently own an E61 (very satisfied with the phone casing and software, although more imporvement on the software side still needed).
competition will let us as the customers have more impressive products.
i have owned a n70 , then when the wonderful 3mp n80 arrived , i bought it at a very expensive price thinking that it would last me for a while ... very disappointed on that phone la ... the only thing that this n80 impressed me is the hi res screen . the rest is out ... i have been using se p series phones since the start of p800 & i must admit that i am really a big fan of it . now i am still holding back to n70 because of the apps & games available . this se p990i arrived in singapore last week & selling like hot cakes with the pre order , i missed it at the price of $1388 plus a free 2gb msduo . i am going to get it this weekend , which is tomorrow . cheers to se p990i !
n80, p990i..hmm...the guy from canada is comparing apples and oranges..the p990i is comparable to the likes of atoms, universals, treos..i had the n80, and im glad i sold it..just 2 damn slow..

Heylo gUyz n gAlz..!! plz stop that fighting over n80 and p990(n80 vs p990) the guy who was saying n80 is good because he owned it. but to tell you the truth, i also have n80 and it is as slow as a snail. no doubt p990 is overall better fone than n80 even if it is coming in market after 1 year delay.
Nokia was once the best company in mobiles as all of you may know, but before nokia, there was a company named "ERICSSON" who made mobile phones in its era as the best company... After ERICSSON lack out of finance,, then nokia was the best because there were very less companyz making mobiles that time... the brand named SONY was getting its name in the electronic market and they also wanted to be in the mobile market.. so SONY teamed up with ERICSSON, named SONY ERICSSON, as a mobile manufacturing company. SONY had no technology of mobiles,but they had finance... and on the other hand with ERICSSON they are full of technology but didnt have finance.. that was the reason they teamed up to br a good competitors in market.
As you all can se that nokia's market value is going down and down day by day and Sony Ericsson's market value is increasing!!!
The N93 as you know, is nokia's latest fone, it looks like a mobile of more than 10 years ago... even the nokia 3310 was more smaller in its era and was a hitt... it looks like an old ericsson mobile.
Thatz all i wanna say!! good luck to all!!
Nokia, Sony Ericsson..
better to buy p990 than n80 or n93!!!
To whom it may concern...
How you compared N80 with P990. They are of different devices, N80 not too bad but compared to P990, it still long long way...
P990 is an intelligent full PDA device with an AUTO FOCUS 2mp camera. The brother of renonwed K750 2mp, u dared to said no good?
Currently, I'm using K800i and was happy with it cos very fast responsive software (will not hanged). Camera super clear with auto focus and if you take close up macro mode, nokia camera phone had to stand one corner...
Nokia is still the No.1 market leader but Sonyericsson is catching up very fast cos having produced very good camera phone...
By the way, I'm Nokia fan for the past 10 years but lately I have changed from K750 to K800 still going strong...
it looks like its a good phone and it will be a big seller alot of people r really interested in this model jim
This is a nice device , but after I surfed the net and saw the handset live, I decided to go for the I-Mate K-Jam, which is a very nice device( no 3G support however ).Before buying the P990 , read about the imate please.
I was shopping a few days back for a new handset. I had the P990 in mind. I did find a few pre production devices on display but the price was mind blowing. I came home and surfed the net again. The closest I found to the P990 (no 3G support, which doesnt work in Iran anyway) was again an i-mate. This time its the K-Jam. I am not sayimg the P990 is not a good device. But the K-Jam is awesome. People should check for that before they buy the P990.
sleek design and photo resolution much much better than p910 really cool
I'd like to comment on this very very ignorant opinion posted by this forumer.
No doubt N80 has a better camera resolution as compared to the P990.. but you know what? P990 first announced all these features way before N80 came out. The only sad thing I could say about this P990 is the long delay.
If you maintain that Nokia is the world's leader in cell phones, you may for right.. FOR NOW. Dont you see Nokia's market share dropping? with their ever so reliable software glitches, dont get me wrong, I was a fan of Nokia donkey years ago when they were the trendsetters in the cell phone market. But it seems arrogance has gotten to their heads, and they no longer seem to care about 'CONNECTING PEOPLE', therefore SE won me over with their marvellous designs and innovations over the past years.
For your info N80 doesnt even look sleek. Yeah it may be small in terms of width and length, but definitely not the thickness, so you tell me which on would look more like an erection to people???
Having a price tag of USD 1000 is only assumed, I'm in singapore, and here they are selling for SGD 1388.. you do the maths conversions... Also, Nokia may be cheaper, but with all those pricey add on accessories to support it, you end up paying more. I repeat, I was a NOkia user before.
I am currently using SE K800i and I can say it's given me no problems at all. I was initially waiting for the P990i for its launch and I couldnt wait anymore. But hey, I'll only settle for another SE. You should take your NOKIA N80 and do a comparison with My SE K800i, and i'll show you which phones' resolution and camera images are better.
Lastly, dont be ignorant, we dont like to diss others for what phone they own, but clearly you havent done your market research. SE is a subsidiary of Sony & Ericsson DEALING only with the Mobile Telecommunications Industry. Those dealing with toys like Playstation, Home appliances any others are just PLAINLY SONY. Ericsson nowadays doesnt wireless and networking support mainframes.
That is a fact. I pity your ignorance. Period!
I'd like to reiterate some points regarding the N80(Which I own for 2 months, Black) vs P990I.
Both phones have the same features as far as office aaplications,WIFI, and MP3 capabilities. The N80 is a perfect device for both worlds, Business users and day to day regular users!
The 1st difference comes to the Screen resolution. N80 has an brilliant sharp, crip screen,which Se doesnt! the camera on N80 is 3.2 mpx, Vs 2 megpx @ P990. N80, is much sleeker & easy to cary than the P990( which looks like a piece of ugly standard grey plastic brick), if you were to put it in a dressing pants, it looks like you're having an errection ...
Buttom line,a price tag of $1000 USD, donest justify by any mean the price of 990i, I think it is extremely over priced in comparaison to lot of other models on the market offering the same, i f not better performance and high class design such as N80, and other PPC's ( imate, HP, .. using Windows Mobile 5.0)
Nokia are the leading edge on the cell phone industry, in fact, It's their main Focus, and that's all what they make. On the other hand, SE makes so many electronic toys from cell phones to car stereos... Therfore, the quality of their products is always questionable!!! There is no brainer, u just need to read the reviews. and listen to the customer's feedback.
Cheers from Canada
At our office plan to buy about 30 P990i for our office - but they must work as Blackberry emulators. I'm lloking for the full information:-Do we need to make any changes on the Blackberry Enterprise Server? If so - where do I get it with installation instructions? - Do I need any modules to install on the P990i device? if so - where do I get them and the installation instructions? - Where do I get the full configuration/ parameters for setup of the P990i device? - Where do I get the user's guide - explanations on the emulation, the matching keyboards settings,etc?
Apprecaite if any of uyou can help here.
