If you all do a search for P990i on o2 you will see they already have a pre order service for the P990 with some nice deals as well, so it is coming, anyone who is on Orange though might have to wait a little longer as Orange like to put there own software on PDA phones, they also test them though and though so they don't get too many come backs, fair enough i guess, doesn't help me though as I am on Orange, DOH!
Scrap the christmas release!! i have just spoke to SE and they confirm a june release!just in time for my birthday!! finally we can all get our anxious little hands on this beauty.Although my p900 will be sad when i sell it.
Hi all, I agree with Mr D in london on his enthusiasm regarding SE, in my opinion they are the best manufacturer and my p900 thats still going strong reinforces that i think. I work for a mobile retailer and have been told from a reputable source that the p990 will not be launched for 6 months, similar to what hkuser was saying. A question for Faiz, Do you know if thats a uk release in june if so,what networks as i have spoken to orange uk and they say 6 months wait.Its confusing as SE rep says june yet networks say Nov/Dec.I will wait however as this phone will be the best business phone available in terms of features.
Stuff's June issue states that the rumour is that P990 will be delayed till July.
Looks like the P990 will be dead on arrival.. It has taken too long and the rivals are kicking butt... SE might as well scrap this model go for a better design and launch a new phone....
After this long wait , I think SE would launch a new device called P1000 with more advantages for this long delay !
P990 will be released that's for sure and about the Symbian V9 issue yes Se is the first because symbians have 2 versions for smartphones UIQ and S60 Uiq is for P-series and S60 is for Nokia smartphones except 6708. and people keeping bashing and bashing SE phones dont underestimate sony products coz theyre developing and developing
i live in hk and just heard from se that this phone will not release until December 2006 because they are still experiencing software issues, and taking into account not to buy the first batch of phones from se, there is at least another 9 months wait, i have waited so long for this phone
This phone will be lauchned by first week of june 2006, due to trial and testing the phone is delayed. As I have personaly spoken with one of the representative of sony ericsson group.
The P990 is going to be the best phone on the market, Nokia release phones without proper testing, many get recalled, Sony Ericsson don't do things by half, they will make sure everything is working with the phone before releasing it to you an I. The P990 will support up to 8gb Memory Stick PRO Duo, it will have a 2mp Auto Focus cam, a ton of applications. This phone is amazing and it’s worth the wait. Thank you Sony Ericsson, in my eyes, you’ll always be the best at making the best, most reliable and well tested smart phones.
as RONZ says , I also heard that SE would release M600 in June then the W950 , after them the P990
Has anyone noticed HTC Hermes? Its a 3.5G pda phone, which can compare with P990 and Fujitsu Siemens Loox T830.
Was looking at Sony Ericsson's website. Believe that they arrange their phones on their website based on the release dates. P990 has been moved backwards to next to W950, which will be released in August. The phone arranged in front of P990 is the K610, which is slated for July. Seems like P990 might only be released in July or August, in between these two releases. I suppose the conferences they are going to release this month might hold some news about the release date.
Was looking at our release schedule for the next few months and it was confirmed that this model is to be released around 7th of August 2006.We're only on the 1st s/w drop and theres a lot of testing to get through.
Can't wait anymore, I got the i-mate SP5 smart phone, which is an amazing small phone with big features...
SE has been postponing this phone until it became old...
they use to claim they are the first Symbian V9, but the Nokia have released this version before SE...
I advice any person who is waiting to get i-mate SP5 if s/he is looking for size... or one of the new nokia's...
A superb phone that lacks just one thing - Quad Band compatibility, it lacks 850 Mhz. I hope SE can address this in its updated version. Thanks.
It would be really nice to have an interactive demo for the phone in order to get a real good idea of its navigation and feel.
