Sony ericsson stood out of the croud ever since they came up with p900. But don't they learn? Lack of the VoIP, no VGA screen, no "g" band on WiFi (HTC Wizard already has it and the JasJar rocks the 640 by 480 screen) and no 850 support for US. I think SE should know that US works on 1900/850 but they might come out with the US version later on like it happened with 910.
The flip: i don't understand why they came back to p900 version of it i think the perfect version would be the twisting flip like on p910 but with the large letters.
Anyways from what i see this phone definately does not look like a 1500 phone (may be from hustlers on ebay for the first 2 weeks of the official sale) but i would give my hard-earned 800. I think my p910 will be proud to be replaced by this one.
Oh dear... is it true tat all P series models r filled w both hardware n software problems? I'm now in dilemma 2 commit on p990i liao.... ;(
Can anyone tell me if this new release offers recording of a phone conversation??? I'm a journalist and need to carry phone interviews... The P900 for example doesn't offer that, one can only use it as a tape recorder but restricts conversation recordings. I remember being sooooo excited when I first bought my P900 almost two years ago, having paid huge money for it because it had just been released... It took me such a long time to get rid of it and I did it because it also had other major flaws such as failing to connect on too many atttempts (despite upgrading its software three times), a silly plastic edge around the touchscreen that kept breaking upon flipping cover back, very low-quality paint (paint goes off very quickly) and other software problems...
At the moment there is a great buzz in the mobile industry concerning the P990.
A huge amount of technology has been stuffed in this device i think P990 wants to retain its crown in this fierce sector for Super smartphones.
This device has to be the most complete smartphone and i think my search for the perfect device is now finally here!!
This device boasts a p900 look this was because the key pad on p910 gave SE many compaints regarding the less tactile feel of the key pad.
This device packs a 2 mega pixel camera with auto focus and has sony cybershot software built into p990 - true camera experience,320x240 at 262k colour screen,advanced gaming graphics engine,all new music player plays music and video at higher bit rates, plays mp3,aac,aac+,midi,wav,rmf etc...mpeg 4,real,3gpp,opera 8 true internet surfing,blackberry,full email client - push email.
Wifi,bluetooth 1.2,irda,usb faster connectivity 2.0 with usb charging.3g speed for connecting to devices+ video calling with conference calling.
Its has an improved pda experience,what is apparent to me this time Sony Ericsson has reponded to ever increasing competition in the Smartphone world with an out and out all singing and dancing Smartphone theres really not much more you can add to this device.
when you look ath the size to functionality and stability + software this device wins hands down!!!!!!!
noodles Sony Ericc must be off its noodles to expect USD 1500 for this phone...current features only command a 500 - 800 usd price
For a Pda phone of this caliber, be prepared to pay the price. Heard it will cost USD 1500
Hi, can i know is it more user-friendly on sony pda fone compare 2 e rest of other window based pda in e market?
hi every body i think it's the best phone that you may found in the stor it's really good
I will buy this phone as soon as it becomes available. However I must tell you my opinion as well: The smaller screen it’s a disappointment. The QWERTY keyboard on the P910 was perfect. It would have been better to remove it all together rather than sacrificing screen area. Writing with the stylus is excellent on P910.
there is a nokia touchscreen phone, Nokia 7710 and there is another around for quite a few 6710 i think it was it name, for the asian market,
i remenber people saying that this one would be the best Symbian phone for some time and nokia already backstabed with the n80 and n92 =)
Argh! How much longer must I wait? I don't know if I can wait any longer. So tempted to buy O2 XDA Atom! How long more before P990i comes out?
Am waiting patiently on this phone but am wondering if i'll be able to get the same applications that i downloaded on my P910.Can't wait for the opera 8 browsing experience.Gr8 phone.
Almost there! i dont get it. This phone has more features than most of its competitors on the market. So why ruin it with a SMALL SCREEN? That's like putting donuts on a ferrari. Overall it still seems to be functionally better equipped than say the pda2k for instance. But i will wait this one out. Hopefully SE comes out with a true PDA phone.
Yah, the more I read what P990i has to offer and the more I compare it with other phones, I think that P990i is a great phone with great features and I am sure the guys at Sony Ericsson knows it and that could be possibly why they are taking so long to launch the phone, other than the fact that they had decided to annouce it early to accomodate to their technical functionalities. But I think they announce it early too because they know it's a good phone and if anyone is looking out for a pda phone now, they would rather wait for P990i than get any other in the market though I think O2 XDA Exec and O2 XDA Atom are great phones too.
Nokia is coming out with one too? But Nokia doesn't have touchscreen. I don't remember any of their phones being touchscreen. And moreover, Sony packs everything into P990i It has been said that Nokia tends to leave certain things out in their phones to entice people to change to other of their own phones. I am not sure how true that is.
Well, I am waiting for P990i. I hope they let it out soon and not let me wait because they know I am waiting. Haha...
this phone is the prefect phone among all the cell phone manufacture.. it's the prefect symbian phone with touchscreen, 4gb memory card, hign capity phone memory, and the high quality screen with the 2mp camera and with the auto focus.. the most important is it's the 3G phone.. and the keyboad is more conffinient if compare with other two old version symbian phone.. But. i think the price will be so expensive while marketing in the year 2006..
wow im not a sony lover
but wow this phone is nice
dont worry nokia knows about it
and is making a new 7 series model same as 7710 but like this these two will b amazing but nokia's will come out late 2006
RAM Memory: 64MB
Flash Memory: 128MB
Shared memory for storage: Up to 80MB user free memory
External memory: Up to 4GB Memory Stick Duo Pro
Yes, it can support up to 4GB memory stick. I read somewhere that the 4GB memory stick will be released in time when P990i comes out. But I am not sure if it will hang if the memory is too huge but I think the larger the internal memory is, the more stable it is and the lesser it should hang.
