Definitely SE's top dog phone. This model truly decimates all Nokia models, including the current N-series. P990 is definitely on my wishlist.
now bluetooth v2.0 and wifi 11mbs and Memory Stick PRO Duo support up to 8GB is available on this phone http://www.sonyericsson.com/spg.jsp?cc=global&lc=en&ver=4001&template=pc3_1_1&zone=pc&lm=pc3_1&prid=4638
Where are the people who've already bought this phone buying them from?
Just to clarify, the phone does have an RDS Radio and being 3g i would think that television streaming should not be a problem. Most networks have tv streaming as part there 3g services. Plus i have only read that it can take up to 2gb external memory, thats from SE press resources page, But 2gb should be plenty. So this phone should do everything a nokia can do and more!! as a p900 user and avid SE lover i cant wait for this revolutionary handset.
For all of you anxiously waiting for the phone: if been throught that with the p900 as well...
As for the features and insights in the phone have a look at the my-symbian forum at www.my-symbian.com.
There are actual screenshots and lot of inside information out of the one guy having a prototype version.
To make it short:
- wav, aac, mp3, midi ringtones
- BT 2.0 (support for stereo BT headset!!!)
- WLAN 811b
- GSM triple band
- 80MB free Memory
- Memory stick duo pro up to 8GB!
- faster processing than precessors (p900, p910i)
- pushmail via blackberry, exchange activesync and others
- office software
- qvga touchscreen (320x240)
- 1100mAh battery (up to 400hrs standby)
- all connections can be concurrent this means you can browse the web with opera using wlan while doing phone calls
- java and UIQ programs can run when flip closed
- support for birthdays in calendar (one of the biggest drawbacks in UIQ in previous versions)
- hardware support for 3D Games
and so on!!!!
For me as a former p800/p900 owner and current user of a treo 650 this all adds up to "I NEED THIS PHONE".
I've seen much of handphones and I always change my Hp. I believe this is The sweetest, the most elegant and the best there are in the market. In Indonesia this handphone will launch around march 2006 and I already indent for it.
Bravo for sony ericsson...
to Jeff, those website under "check price" for every mobilephone in gsmarena state their price much higher than what we can get in Malaysia.
Hey guys, there is a 3GSM world congress in Barcelona between 13th-16th February and SE 990 can be seen in hall 8 and stand number BO2a as published in se official web site.. whoever lives in Barcelone may visit SE stand and brings us a news and experience about P990 and its release date..
I've enough. I'm waiting for this handset since almost 6 month and finally... I'm not going to wait any more! My next phone will be (unfortunately) Nokia again.
SE - you're loosing customers!...
My frend work for Si.mobil - Vodafone (in Slovenia) and he ask an agent when will be P990i ready to deliver. They sad in and of May or at the beginning od June.
i saw some websites its already on pre order but i think its just too too high,its 1299.99usd thats rm4840 its too high unafordable.
hey, anyone know that does it install al nokia apps like IrDa remote ? if it does, I can wait 'til release date!!!!!
Gents.. what about bluetooth.. what version of bluetooth does this phone have..
thanks in advince :)
hey, does anybody now that does it install all the .sis programs?? anyone??
Wonder if it does dual languages? English and Chinese.
Also is there a voice dial feature?
The P990i has been delayed to Q2 2006 and also a possiblity of it being delayed to Q3/4 2006.
There are no guarantee of it being able to be delivered in June 2006 or earlier because of the product market refocus.
Although there were many PR campaign for the P990i, the other possiblity is that the P990i may be scrapped.
The potential customers will be in the dark till June/July for another 6 months wait.
The price of the P990i is also a big question mark.
