Well I think all should stay calm and wait for the news from the 3gsm congress which going to held on 13th till 16th feb. Most likely we will see official press regarding the p990i and other upcoming models
I know the feeling I've been so tempted by different phones but can't make up my mind about the whole phone to get but I think i'm going to keep waiting though as this is virtually the perfect phone apart from the memory which comes with it!!
OK guys i waited for this phone for a long long time but no response from SE. I bought Imate right now. So please stop waiting for this phone and look for any other model.
hate to say this I can't see the market for the phone you propose as people who buy these sorts of phones are usually business men who will have the facilities to use the net at home and work one a computer that would be better suited thus making the screen pointless unless you wanted to use it for travel at which point you might as well have a phone with a large screen!!! also the hardware to run the phone succesfully would have to go in the screen as unless you wanted the most basic handset it wouldn't fit in the small phone
There should be a phone like w800i with DETACHABLE additional large screen (SAY 4 to 6 inches wide)with its own battery for additional pda features and multimedia.so that the phone offers both lightweight portability and full vga internet browsing and multimedia entertainment.hope some handset manufacturer takes note of this.
sorry for you guys who wasn't able to buy this phone from welectronics.com. i was one of the lucky guys who were able to buy the sony ericsson p990 from them. the phone is alright, although larger than the p910. the features are quite alright too. i'm starting to love this phone, though i haven't tested much applications yet. will let you know. =)
So is P990i delayed? Really? So bad. Ohhhhh. Why? Does someone know? let's me se! Thanks.
i have this suggetion for sony ericsson.,they should try and add features like...,intergrated video player down load and play back or for streaming 3gpp,h263 video mpeg4 and amr. add music and video to ur caller id . for p990
i am suggeting to sonyericsson to produce more smart phones of different series not only the p-series.
I don’t know why, but I think all of this happened from the ambiguous that Sony Ericsson put us in with the release date of p990, so I except that all of this is nothing...and the p990 still set in the Q1 of 2006 without any change.
And for prove imagine why Sony give this information to a list of people how contact it by e-mail or by phone, while it could put this information in there site for public so they could help them self from answering the same Q for every one ask for..., And why Sony is trying to hidden this information form public except some list who contact them, maybe they (The people who defense about this information or who want us to believe that they contact Sony) are just copying it form other site or layers.
So let is be realistic and believe that if Sony don’t put this in it is own site, every of this could be no more than a big lay.
What do you think guys…?
That's the reply from SE center via email for me. I will try to get the confirmation from the SE via phone but still feeling s**t about the deplay
Dear Duong Ha,
Thank you for contacting the Sony Ericsson Call Centre.
With regards to your enquiry,
The 3G Sony Ericsson P990i will be available in Q2 2006.
Unfortuntely, it is not possible to make a reservation for the phone.
Sony Ericsson does not have information concerning the availability
of the phone at operators or the price. Thank you for your
Should you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us again for further help and support.
sim free is when you buy the mobile phone without a contract so you don't get a sim card with it hence "sim free" hope that clears it up otherwise its the same phone apart from a few software changes usually simfree is the better way togo if not more expensive!!!
what mean of sim free mobile??
Is it mean that we can use any sim card from any country(UK,Italy...), And it all will work correctly?
And what different between sim free mobile and handset mobile?
Which is better to use in uk or outside without haveing any problems??
Thank you for helping
The phone will be released at the beginning of april...and the price is unknown. belive it or not
Ive have just contacted SE by phone in the UK time 13.10 gmt and P990 is still on schedule for a sim free release in March If you are waiting for this handset to come out on a network the date will be April/May/June i ive had this confirmed at Managerial Level at Sony Ericsson UK.
I have contact UK SE and they say the P990 will come out at Q2 2006 D**m it that's too late
The information i posted this morning was given via a phone call to Sony Ericsson UK and was confirmed by 2 departments July IS NOT THE DATE this is incorrect March is the release date.
Will be available first as a SIM FREE OPTION which can be attached to a contract.
