this phone can fit in your pocket.its much better than the P910i. the battery lasts forever and does not drain fast. its just too good. the keypad and the keyboard buttons are not at all hard.
Its too good. It is a must buy for all doctors who have done their PhD. The quality of this phone is the best in the world. The special keyboard never gets spoilt. Nothing goes wrong with the phone. If u are looking for a phone to last u forever then this phone is for you.
I think that is the best mobile phone. Abaut scrrem i think it's not so small ( look at the pictures and you will see that it isn't so much diference betwen P910i and P990)
Its an amazing phone and much better than the P910i...finally Sony done a great job!!!!!
From my experience, large screen on P910 drain battery really quick. So people don't have P-series before should have to know this. Smaller screen is better as I prefer, battery is more important, especially P990 can do horizontally web browsing.
I have to say my P910a is a very good phone, only 2 things that I'm disappoint: size(not easy to pocket) and speed(slow OS, I hate use it to web browse, wastes time). So I believe I will pass P990 this time, even though it has many approvements, but the size and no EDGE for US users really disappoint me a bit.
damm guys.. look at the picture... its like a few small damm tiny inches the screen is smaller. but they have done a good idea by putting the QWERT key there cause it is easier to type when it is over there... i think this is a great phone.. 2MP with Autofocus...with a large touch screen.. just perfect... 100 times better than nokia's
i think this is thegreat phone that sony ericsson will launch, i hope there is nothing wrong when it comes for it operating system. wow!!!
I used P910i when i compare to P990 the technology is more modern than P910i but the screen is tather small. i think screen size should be the same to P910i.
Hi guys! Can i cx w u all somethin? Which do u think i should buy? P990i or N80? I'm still in dilemna of which 2 get... btw, wat is e video resol n at how many fps 4 p990i? Does it c/w built-in simplified version of photoshop like n90 has?
I am wondering about the difference in screen size between the p910 and the p990.
Some of you said the diagonal was reduced from 2.8" to 2.76". Suppose that this is true (I'm not sure but I trust you guys)
My belief is that the actual area of the p990 is larger! Let me explain.
The area A of the screen can be calculated as D^2/(X+1/X) where D is the diagonal and X is the aspect ration (W/H) where W is the width and H is the height of the screen. Hence only a small increase in aspect ratio can make the screen area larger.
Suppose the pixels are squares for both screens. In this case the aspect ratio for the p910 is X=208/320=0.65. For the P990 this is X=240/320=0.75
Hence the area of the p910 would be 2.8"^2/(0.65+1/0.65)=3.58 square inches.
The area of the p990 would be 2.76"^2/(0.75+1/0.75)=3.66 square inches.
My conclusion is that quite possibly (when my assumptions are correct) the screen size has actually even increased. AHA!
the screen is only 3 mm smaller. it is big. the phone is realy smart
I use 900, was waiting for the 990 but I found that screen is smaller. I personally will never buy a small screen touch screen. SonyErics missed big time on this unwanted qwerty!!!! better go for imate
Honestly a lot of people were looking for radio and a better camera with flash including however i think P910 has been successfull for its unique design and that gigantic screen i love the most. The small screen is definitely dissappointing and 90% of the p910 users dont use the qwerty keypad..
"Comparing with the P910 we can say the screen diagonal reduced slightly and now forms 2.76" (against 2.8" in the previous version). It's not hard to guess the dot size reduced, and now the picture became brighter and readable. The 262K colour rendering in not nominal here, the pictures are bright and vivid"

Also what you say about this:
"And in contrast to this opinion Sony Ericsson decided on making an All-In-One smartphone to compete with all devices at once. Short term effect may be reached, however, in half a year we can expect a version of the P990 without a QWERTY-keypad. This device will be about two cm shorter and will come closer to the K750 in height."
just wait guys...there will be a p970,with a better design but no qwerty.but it looks lovely,the p970 i mean,it is kind of like the old sony Z series.
Attention Please,I am really impressed with your new improvement on this P990.My customers are waiting for it and it would have been so beautiful and well accepted from the bottom of my heart if this phone can be out before this end of this Year.I mean before Xmas.I like this phone so must it Thousands of my Customres are waiting for it.Good Thinking,Good Products.More power to ur Elbow!
I was about to buy Nokia N70 until I saw SE 990. But it is too long to wait until March 06. would you please tell me the exact date of seeing it on the market? I will decide to buy N70 or wait SE P990.. should I wait for SE P990? And I agree with all others who criticize screen changes (smaller than p910)
