I just checked carphonewarehouse page (UK dealer) for this phone and they claim it should be available on 6th May. Can anyone confirm this (not being in UK right now so I can't check that obviously).
Yes we have all waited this long and I am getting imaptient... this phone stands out amongst the rest and the only thing is that it needs "edge" and more standby and talk time as compared to its predecessor the P910i. Also a 3 mega pix camera is needed like the N93. This phone will get obsolete by the time it gets here that's the only sad thing about it. :(
If it doesn’t come out soon I will forced to buy an alternative phone, and I know I will regret it later on, but I need a phone quickly as my 910 got too tired and is about to close its screen for ever.
wow, you guys are really debating on SE 990i and N91 huh. well. for me, and i believe for so many of us, SE990 is the best. the only concern is that it has been too long since the day it has been introduced. anyway. already waited for 6 months, why not 2 more.however, n91 is really something. but i dont believe in microdrive. it can crash anytime.
Total rubbish by the time this phone comes out its miles outdated compared to models out now. It needs to come with 3meg camera to redeem itself.
sum1 please give me a ETA on dis phone in south africa!!!!! got customers waiting
Reading these comments it's becoming funnier every day :))).
It's going to be launched in June so get a grip :P

YOU SAY WHAT should i do
I THINK I WAIST MY TIME please coming now
P990 is the best!!!
All N series phones could have all posible tech, but P990 have the maximum possible tech and software, N and E series always loose to Sony Ericsson P series because:
This OS is the best for a phone, the mediocre nokia symbian Series 60 are simply inferior to UiQ.
Touchscreen, HW recognition, personalization, reliability, stability, etc are the main features of UiQ.
P990 has UiQ and WiFi, 320*240 30fps video recording (Nvidia GoForce), RIM Blackberry, atlexia, etc 2MP camera w/autofocus, UMTS, videocall, bluetooth 2.0, 2.76 QVGA touchscreen and the total advantage of touchscreen and UiQ.
SE no need to produce Pseries phones in mass like nokia, nokia makes a thousands of S60 smartphones, but all are buggy, bulky and incomplete firmware/software.
SE in change develop their OS with detail and providing the user satisfaction in all aspects, like all P series predecessors.
P800, P900 and P910 are the best phones in the market and P990 are the best of all time.
These are the facts that P990 beat all N, E S60 smartphones, N80 is a slow and buggy brick comparing with P990, loose in all aspects.
no theres no wrong. this phone is under develop but expect to be more stable and productive after it's release...
Yes, the P990 is the best smartphone ever made!
Who is the idiot that compare N91 with P990?
You cant compare the MEDIOCRE nokia Symbian Series 60 OS with the excellent UiQ.
UiQ is the best OS for phones, S60 is buggy and slow and ridiculous.
N80, N91, N93 and all N series cant compete with P990 because; first of all, the OS.
UiQ is a lot better than S60 in features, in easy of use, logical, in personalization, reliability and etc.
This is the fact, nokia makes thousands of symbian S60 phones, all suffers the same problems: slowest operation, lots of bugs; while SE onle have 3 Symbian UiQ models and one more to be released (P990), this phones are pretty perfect.
SE search the user satisfaction, all SE phones have excellent characteristics and P990 isnt the exception.
For me P990 is the best phone ever, nothing more.
the sony ericsson p990 symbian phone is i think the boss of all the symbian phones.nokia is struggling to make phone like p990 but its impossible for them to make such wonderful phone.one thing i wana share with all the people that there is lot of differenc in the material of nokia phones and the sony ericsson.nokia phones are like toys its material is too bad and of low quality while the sony ericsson material is unbeleable its insane and..............
ok i knw we are all seriously desperate but is there sumthin wrong with the phone? is that why there are not releasing it?!

Since many of us have alry waited so long... just be patient and wait... cos i know it's going to be out real soon.
Nokia keeps producing buggy phones and firmware will be corrected many month after how stupid those are... theyre just making money unlike SE who brings innovation models without bugss... p800,p900,p910 and this upcoming p990 (NO JOKES!) people says SE dont have experience in making symbians hmm i tink nokia fans are too blind to say nokia are experts in Symbians who always hurry everything and the result? annoying errors. SE makes very reliable symbian handsets that even late when introduced to market, becomes the best phone ever made. don't judge the phone by it's great features but great quality...
for those who are blind with nokia's propaganda they will say F*k SE who the hell are they? fine, go for their model and see if the hard disk will last for long and carl-zeiss will be as stable as CMOS of SE... some of these peoples are complaining this for being late so you want to have errors on this phone and complain again to SE forums of why it happens? is that what you want!
NOKIA FANS and other desperate people ARE BLIND!BLIND!BLIND!
it is disgusting.sony should first introduce this phone in the market then sony should discontinue tha p910a.i am waiting for it for the last6 months
Since I got tired of waiting for this phone, and considering the fact that better devices are now available, I went for the I-TEQ. Great device, very robust, Wi-fi , Bluetooth , Tv tuner , FM radio , MP3 player , Sound recorder, Built in Answer machine, Background sound effects, 2.1 MP camera with flash and macro switch, slide mechanism for a numerical keyboard, Windows mobile 5.0 2005 , 262 K touch screen and lots of other fancy features. Also included is 2 chargers , two batteries and a 256 MB mini SD card.
The P990i dont seem appealing anymore, specially since its not even available and god knows the price at release time.
I don't know wtf you are trying to show by spaming the comment box!!!
Like i mention before... SE is not going to collapse by losing you this kind of customer... for me i too been happily waiting for it realease... why can't you people be like me and just wait!
If anyone out there don't have the patient to wait, than get some other phone... and i don't think you people can afford it machine too... i meant some of you..
Everyone here have a short memory. Nokia N91 was launched 12 months after its anouncement. SE will beat that. SE stands for quality!
SE should learn from Samsung, even Nokia leasrned something from Samsung. SE is a arrogant guy that is still thinking that customers will follow their ideas. not they folowing customers' demand. with this phone, i believe that SE can really do something with the market share. as a lot of people have been waiting for this model. but till now, nothing happen. i suspect that even the final phone have not been completed yet. the one that has been shown is only sample.
