What?!? They sacrifice half the screen for a full keyboard? Like we ever need one when virtual keyboard is so much better. I'd very much prefer full screen and no keyboard AT ALL. WLAN is nice (though a 802.11g is preferable ^_^ ). Everything else is perfect. But I'll stick with my P910 unless they decide to have P990 in full screen as well.
I think this is a step back. Replacing the screen size with a onboard keyboard is madness. Just read the reviews. People do not like blackberry because of its large size keyboard but the push email software.
What was wrong with p910 style qwert keyboard at the back of the flip?
The general design is so disappointing!
Numeric keypad is not as good and professional as P910.
This is definetely a no starter for me. I will look at the alternatives.
it is great but y don't they add the incoming calls recorder ( vioce call )
I am a die-hard Sony Ericsson P910 fanatic who couldn't wait for the next model-up to be unleashed. Only to be dissapointed by the reduction in screen size. Nobody ever complained about the screen being too big. Seriously, who decided that the customer wanted to see less on the screen? Unbelievable bad move. Ok, the smaller screen is the only complaint but its importance carry so much weight that many people like myself may decide not to purchase the P990 and keep the P910 based soldly on that reason alone. Upgrades should always be based on what the customer wants. Read the reviews! If it aint broke dont try to fix it. Why shoot yourself in the foot when everything else about the p990 is great?...Bad move.
SAM. thats what im trying to figue out. its either there are alot of companies scared of this phone so much that they have to lower the ratings. or alot of people are lazy and just hit the vote button without even scoring... i wonder.
I want to by P-910i and also i want to upgrade to newer one p-990, but i am afraid about it because it seems like normal phone not PDA, really i don't know why big company like sonyericsson made product like that, the PDA noe is DIE, what can i do?
Very dissapointed in the keyboard taking up half the screen, I thought that after the p910i they would be doing away with the keyboard totally. I mean there is a virtual keyboard which is fantastc. I love the wlan.
i donno why p990 need to have build in keypad inside the phone when u clip open your keypad. whats the point? that cause the phone has smaller screen. i m using 900, not getting 910 cuz they almost the same, so exciting to wait for 990 but this time really disappointed me. And the design is not good, like lower class phone
u guys have disappointed me, this is one of the best phones in this world...all hail the p990,,,
I am going to get N70 instead of this.
Sorry SE, the P990 may have better features than Nokia, but it really looks like a cheap plastic phone compare to N70.
It looks good, i only buy sone ericsson phones because they are sexy and attract many sexy girls.

great job Sony Ericsson about this phone however.. its design is not attractive... I still do believe that appearance counts a lot... I was happy that this is 3G but yucky design... sorry SE, you can't expect my budget to this phone...
Ikem and red
dont you think the poor ratings say something
I Mate jasjar has got some of the best ratings for a pda phone.
Sony Ericsson has not got this one right.
Also when can we see a pda phone and a satellite phone converging...move it sony
Whats the the matter with all you guys? "I'm sooo disappointed etc etc etc"...The screen is not that much smaller than the p910. IF YOU LOOK AT THE PHONE PROPERLY..you will see the top of the screen has been raised substancially, and is slightly wider.
Moreover, you guys are all moaning about the size!?? Show me a phone with this spec that is smaller...and no i dont mean a multitap smartphone!!
This is direct competition to HTC Universal, or Nokia 9500, and it covers so many aspects in one phone, Blackberry, flip closed normal use, smartphone, PDA etc...if you want a small phone, go and get a Nokia N70 with limited functionality. If you're complaining about the screen size go and get the 285g HTC Universal that requires a briefcase
Lighten up people. You're all dreaming about miracles. Be realistic
TO SONY ERICSSON:
I hope the next P-series will be like this:
1. Return the keypad and keyboard of p910i
2. Put an "i-pod like navigator" instead of existing qwerty keyboard for mp3 music lover.
3. Include Upnp( universal plug & play) for TV output and compatible computer remote control.
4. Change screen resolution into 315x416 pixels in 16million color tft screen
5. Adjust loudspeaker volume with megabass.
6. Wi-fi/edge/3g/wcdma/push to talk
7. 3.0 megapixel autofocus/ cif and mp4 video format.
8. Change front camera into 1.0mpx include light sensor for 3g comm. as well as for front camera mode.
9. 254mb internal memory with 2gb memory stick duo pro.
10. Macromedia and web zoom browser
11. FM radio(can play with or without headset) with retractable headset incorporate to the phone
12. Replace stick pointer to insertable thumb pointer for touch screen( to maximize one hand use-optional)
