I think people are getting confused because this phone will be release at different times in different countries. In the U.K, the Sony Ericsson UK Online store says June. http://www.se-store.co.uk/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.comingSoon
Phone companies do tent to release phones in the U.K first because of the way they are sold in the U.K, most people in Europe have to buy the phone out right, which means they are very expensive, in the UK, phones like the W810i are given out free of charge as long as you stay with Orange or Vodafone for 12 months.
I should be able to get the P990i for around £150 brand new, with a 12 month contract, o2 are even selling the pre-order phone for £75 which is amazing.
Everyone should have the phone by the end of August, if you live in the U.K you should be able to buy it by the first week in June.
Is that real? Why we need to wait sooooo long. I think that's an idea from SE to make funny on other competitor. DUMMY SET... Hope that all the application are new....and don't even ever think change something new and that's consider new model.... I tell you SE...don't be funny...don't make profit before think GOD BLESS YOU...
late late late late late late late late late
I am really getting board from SE and I want to buy nokia N80! this phone seems to be available in july and i can't wait anymore!!!
Waited, Waited, waited.
Give up, can't wait anymore.
SE new phones slow on mkt.
Nokia too fast, price drop.
Problem, only use nokia & Se.
Bad news guys ! K800 only would be availble in JUne , and P990 in July ! I heared that from SE staff in Kuwait
when will this smartphone be shipped its so late and i am starting to get bored from SE they take AGES to release a phone while on the other hand nokia is playing speedy phones out there!!!! NO ONE IS IN THE MIDDLE :(
Hi everyone,i contacted Sony Ericsson
yesterday, and they said unfortunately
P990i,has been delayed,until at least July
Well it`s fingers STILL crossed then
I just would like to say thatr eversince the p800 came out, i was already a loyal fan of SE in terms of everything about cell phones. Would the people claiming copyright infringements pleeeeeeaaase stop right now in making a complete jesters of yourselves and let SE release this VERY FINE specimen so i could buy 5 of it RIGHT NOW. You guys must be working for the other phone companies and ar just jealous of SE. GODSPEED to Sony Ericsson, may you create more phones like these ^_^ ^_^ ^_^.
hey once in a while we need to kick the manufacturers of cell phones ...
The 990 looks great but the release date has been too long and SE needs to be ribbed a bit for that.
However on a more serious note
The quality of cell phones and their longivity must be looked at more closely.... while manufacturers of cell phones are glad to get us to upgrade, the environmental impact and junk it generates is a global problem.
For those who just want a phone to make calls rignt now manufacturers must it last at least 15 years .
Once technology fully develops all phones must be made to last that long
To Mr D, Cheers for your mail, nice to see people having a lighter sense of humor! i just wanted to put my point across that this forum is for valid opinions and info and not for slagging of manufacturers.we all Know this phone is worth the wait.Death to all non believers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(only kidding, keep your knickers on!!)
Message for chucky.
Yes, the P800,P900, P910i, and the P990 all support MSN messenger, Yahoo messenger, AOL messenger, ICQ and Skype, although these companies don't make software for the P phones, you can buy software that does all 5 of these things. Cool innit. Also that message about copyright, guys, can we all calm down, it must have been posted from someone who uses Nokia phones to pray to, its a region for some, and he knows not what he does. LOL.
Anyway, June it is, I can't wait, bring it on.
Who the hell just mailed claiming to be the CEO of SE, saying the phone is not going to be released due to copyright reasons, that is quite strange seeing as the phone is totally individual and i cant see it infringing on any copyrights at all, plus how would the phone pass the original design phase if it infringed on copyrights?I have just spoken to SE and they hold on the june release and they have logged this e-mail down, the rep i spoke to was furious about this. Do think about these things before you make a fool of yourself, now we are all laughing at you for your stupidity.For the rest of us serious phone users, not long now!
Take it easy all.
Going by these features, 990 is perfect and also the best. I cant wait for it to be released in the Nigerian market.
This model is not going to launch due to many reasons (such as legal and copyright). The person that design this phone has been asked to leave the company.
Thanks for your support.
