guys i have been reading the forums daily and most of the ppl r sayin the same thing SE is playin with us and they will loose customers.i have been nokia user since i ever started using a mobile i always loved it but if u go to c all the new nokia phones r facing software problems.i guess everyone wants the best thing in the world and tats why SE is taking time to come out with p990.i cant understand if most of the ppl who r fans of p series have waited for a year can easilt wait for few months.the ppl who have gone and bought nokia n80 or n71 or ne other n series will also buy the p990 once its out.i guess if u want the nest thing in the world u gotta wait for it.se has been in this business since few years after they collabarated and they exactly know wat there customers want.i live in india my retailer told me the phone will be out in 2 months so i guess ppl should wait for 2 months end of august and see wat the situation is and then take it on from there.remember one thing SONYERICSSON rocks
July 18th appears to be the release date.

A concrete date at last, Katshing.se (and they should know, being in the same country as Sony Ericsson) have the P990i down for being in stock on July 18th. Still early days for firmware though, judging from the bug reports about the M600i from around the world.
well se, i guess this is it.being an avid supporter of se p series for years, se was able to completely convert me with their blunder with p990.and u ppl workin at se and had something to do with this major mess up,you'd better start lookin 4 jobs coz i would b quite disappointed if se does not cut back with all the negative sentiment they have created for the company.
Tarantula, you are right but P900 was annouced on Dec 2005 and M600 was annouced on Feb 2006 and already in the market...Why P900 still need to wait for two more months to release. What make it delay for so long ?
guys i have been following the forums since sometime now and most of the ppl are sayin one thing se is playin with ppl the phone is outdated ppl have switched to nokia but one thing is clear the phone will come out and it will shut everyones mouth i have been a nokia user since i ever started using a mobile but this time i wanna buy this phone and will wait for it coz i have faith in se.i found out from my retailer in india he said the phone will come in 2 months if ppl have waiited for more than a year i guess they can surely wait for few months more if they want the best thing.if u read the forums there r ppl who have said they have switched to nokia but still they keep posting their opinions why do they come and talk abt this phone if they dont have trust in se.i cant prove it but 90% of ppl who have posted here good or bad abt se will surely buy the phone once it out.so jus be patient its the matter of few months and u will have the next best thing in ur hand
M600 is already in the market, it has UiQ 3.0 v9.1. For me the problem is in hardware compatibility, operation times (processor issues) or a security problems with OS-network connections (WiFi).
And P990 has a LED flash light.
As per my understanding Symbian UiQ 3.0 v9.1 is only 5 months released, and SE P990 is the first smart phone which using this OS. This is the reason why SE keeps delaying the release of the phone, this OS face many problem and still did not 100% solve. The first batch of the phone for sure will have some bugs but will corrected soon. I wonder whether P990 have xenon flash like K800 ?...
Hey guys I have been searching for P990 news on the net like a hungry wolf. I finslly read somewhere that SE realize there is not much original software support for the P990; so they announced it very early so that software houses develop subsuantial programs in time for its release, scheduled in July 2006. So do not say SE messed up. Apparently they know what they are doing more than we do.
I've been wait for so long to see the phone how nice it is but untill now nothing. I think this new SE P990 have problem cause untill now it haven't release it yet. Rubbish phone. The factory don't respect the clients.
p990 is available to certain retailers within australia as a pre release promotion!!!!! how good is that?
This problem reminds me the one we had with the Motorola MPX or MPX 300, by the time it was announced it was THE phone! lot of people waiting anxious for the release date, motorola playing with us, constantly putting off the release date... and what was the result of all our hope?? YES a discontinued status of the phone... http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_mpx-673.php, I was very angry at that time, I hope SE makes the difference and release soon the phone! SE DON´T FAIL US!
The people compare N80 and N70 with P990, but this comparisson is incorrect. N80 has EDGE and 3,2MP camera but is totally inferior to P990. Really poor battery life, a lot of bugs and no touch screen: ¿Who says that N80 is better than P990? First of all i dont like S60 OS, for me is a mediocre OS and cant be compared to UiQ, UiQ beats S60 in all aspects.
E70 is more sophisticated smartphone than N80 but is ugly, S60 without touchscreen, discomfort keyboard, poor batt life (like all nokia smartphones) and camera without autofocus.
The main feature that nokias E and N series (N80 and E70) is the screen resolution, but screen size is inferior to SE P990.
P990 is the best choice to smartphones addicts and business people, only be patient because you will buy the best phone
haha..somebody just entered the wrong side..correct,want to promote nokia phone can just go to nokia webside..
never happen b4, expecting this phone since last oct..cant believe it....well, be
patient friends..i'm sure SE knows what is the best for customer..they want to earn money and also want to fight nokia and other handset too..so i dont think they will give up tat easily....just wait..wait..wait..
Be patient, be patient. But SE must give an almost perfect handset if this P990 be released. SE may not make us disappointment.
I have my P900 and when I see this P990 I cant wait for this mobile to came out in the market here in the Philippine's, I only disapointed cause, why is it that this phone is not yet available here in the Philippines? any 1 here can message me when this phone might be on our market? thanks and hope soon that this phone will be out in the market for the next couple of day
Well yesterday, when i saw Q3 for the P990, I went on-line and nearly bought a Nokia N80, but I just can't do it, Nokia build quality is not the best, and I need a phone that's gonna last a whole year, or even 2 years, I still have the P910i (Had it since August 2004) and its going strong, battery is fine etc, tell me what Nokia phone can do that eh? I am disappointed that I am going to have to wait a few more months, but it is only i phone i guess, I don't care about that cam because that's just for kids anyway, I don't know any cam on a phone that's any good, if you wanna take pictures, then buy an Olympus or something !
I bet it will not be release even after 60 days. Happy waiting. I am waiting for it till 30 Feb 2007......
Just agreed a deal with Vodafone - getting a P990 when they release them 21st August
