agree. i actually want a pda phone with keyboard... what is better than simply entering the actual alphabet...
are you kidding me with that keyboard comment? the p990's screen is wider than the 910's and only like 3mm shorter. We'll actually be able to use this qwerty unlike the flimsy flip board on the p910. Great move on SE's part.
Not making a p990a with 850 band for USA... BAAAAAAAAADDDDDDDD MOVE.
WHy the keyboard - it's a stylus phone - some options don't even work with the keyboard - guys, you just kill important screen space for no value - dumb.
guyz,..admit it or not this phone is the best smartphone to offer you complete in a pack features, no nokia n93,n80,or palm or HTC can beat overall performance,graphical user interface, writing input and etc. of the P990, even though nokia makes n93 that features everything,
will it be easy for a people especially business people to use it(n93) using a non touchscreen interface of the crashing 9.1 s60 3rd editon?
for me all nokia n-series are nothing compared to P990 it's just wifi/g,3mp cam, and etc put in that phone in order to hide it's difficulties in everything, nokia already has UIQ phone, why they insist using s60 which always makes stupid crashes in your programs? makes battery drained fast? and makes more annoying viral attacks and etc. than this UIQ phone and Pocke PCs?
No phone in this world today can beat P990 overall performance for sure.
Tried the Symbian 9 UIQ 3 OS on the m600.... Very impressive. definite an upgrade from the earlier version on my p900...
P990i, pls come fast...
Hi, There is a good news for Singapore SE supporters. The phone will be out from end of jul to beginning of Aug this year. This had been confrim from the SE sales Rep. The phone had been sent to IDA for checking before been release to SG.
I've been waiting too long already. I'm tired of waiting any longer. The P990 is not so great anyways. Will switch to Nokia or Palm instead. I'm still ticked that it has been over a year already since it's announcement.
is there any such feature that we can fax any document from the handset without connecting to the pc. and is there a fax modem in the handset.
Looks like I will not be getting this phone, even after the long wait. Because of this:
"Will existing P800/P900/P910 applications run without modification on the new P990?
No, applications will have to be rewritten and recertified. The P990 is based on both a new OS version and new software platform version. Additional security requirements in Symbian OS v9 will not allow previous applications to run on the P990. A new tools chain has been introduced to improve performance in code size etc which means that the code compilation looks differently. The UIQ platform framework has also been updated to support new input modes, so UIQ 3 based applications will have a completely new code base."
I don't want all my old programs that I have collected to go to waste. I want a faster phone, but the camera is unnecessary and definitely not the lack of programs I will be able to use.
i like this mobile and it is better to have keyboard on the screen side rather than having it on the flip like the old one................
I am waiting for it to be available......
Hope it comes very soon.
Well, I'm a big time fan of the P9xx series and I will most likely buy the p990i. I'm really concearned about competing phones however and needed some reasons to stick with SE.
Anyone know why they didn't use the M2 memory? Or why a 2 meg cam was used instead of 3.2? or why they went with 3g instead of EDGE?
I'm just curious about all these things, because they already have all this technology on all their other phones... seems like they could easily just tricked this phone out without effort.
actually I'm watching the forums for a long time now and I'm really a fan of this new product. But now I've seen a new model from HTC named TyTn. There are great features in it like, EDGE and HSDPA and looks not bad.
Check it out in the internet. So now I don't know what to do?
I think this phone have become the biggest mitake in SE's life ... I mean all the other companies are selling thier phone while they are still in the "making" phase !!!!
if this phone has not been released before July I guess the phone will not sell and will never even be remembered !!!!
E-South Africa I have an Imate Jamin also.Its wonderful. Much better than my P910.The screen is 65K color but its more vivid than my P910. And its alos much easier to use than the p910. The only problem i have with it is the hardware numeric keypad missing. I wish it had that
Hi everyone, I haven't been here for about 2weeks.
I got my I-mate JAMin ,also called Qtek S200 2weeks ago.
Touch screen, thinner than my old P800, 2MP camera, closeup focus setting...zoom...video record etc.
Excellent menus and functions!
The fact that it has a BIG screen and is thinner than the P800/P900/P910 is really a plus.
No problems so far.
It synced to MSoutlook, my notes..etc.. everything is there.
Nice shortcuts for Bluetooth on and off, Silent(vibrate) mode on and off.
Customise your drop down menus...etc..
REALLY worth a look.
Buddy of mine has the P910 and he is really impressed with my i-mate JAMin.
Check it out and save yourself the frustration...I'm happy with my new toy.
I have been searching for the availibity of this phone since 10 months ago, and I call up your service centre no one knows when will this phone be available is it funny
I wonder one thing about se 990.
When we turn on the fm radio, do we need to connect to head set?
Please tell !!!
thank you before hand.
the keyboard is on the screen cus to get the push email licence like the treo and if you look at the p 900 and p 910 opinions many people did not like the keyboard on the flip and they said if only it was over the main body and now where are all those people!!!?come on guys make some noise .the screen diff is only 2mm in sq cm its wider than p 910 if the se people would have gone for the screen till where the keyboard was they would have compromised with the battery life with the res they are giving and we would have cryed abt how bad the battery life was(look how the atom operates it does not have wifi or the battery life would have been much worse )i know this i work in a cell phone company assembleing them. so what se is giving us is great with only 2 or 3 mm of screen diff than the p910 and so much fetures i dont think we should cry abt it.screen is bigger than atom and 2mm in sq cm shorter than the p910(cause the screen is 2mm wider than p 910)so we look at it side by side it looks shorter but its wider. i dont think there is any fuss abt it
