i think sony ericsson should hire more designers cuz it seems like that all their smartphones looks almost identical! look at P800, P900, P910, and even this P990, they all look somewhat still the same, my GOSH, se pls make better looking smartphones so u can compete with nokia, no wonder sony ericsson is ranked 5 out of top ten. not forgetting their normal phones looks the same too, for example T610 & T630, K700 & K750, W500 & S700... main look is BRICKS! this is a smart move cuz they don't have to change the mother boards on their phones very often that's why SE phones are cheaper than nokia's!
Could anyone tell me DOES THIS PHONE HAS DIGITAL ZOOM?HOW MANY TIMES DOES THIS PHONE ZOOM? could anyone answer my question coz i like this phone..one thing that SE forgot is that it does not have EDGE..but SE is trying to have EDGE i hope so....SE is the best among the rest...
this smartphone's screen is a bit poor cuz considering it's size only has 320 x 240 pixels versus n80's also n90's 352 x 416 pixels, superb! no wonder it's features only has 8.1 as of this date!
Well..all i can say about this phone is that the screen of this is somewhat the same as the old phone the P910i..but if u look at the picture it is small but the difference is that P910i has a screen of 280x380 while P990i has a screen of 240x320....well it's only 1.5 cm i guess is the difference of the 2 phones...All i can say is that P990i has it all...go SE....Gud luck..
Come on guys you gotta be kidding p990 screen is bigger check the dimension.The wait is too long though.Saw nokia released the N92 recently how does p990 match up
Hey, hey, hey in Romania already are. So forget about May 2006. Is the best phone from SE.
I heard its not coming out untill May 06! Tooooooo long to wait!!!!!!!!1
This phone seems like a bad compromise . Sony When is the P1000 coming out looks like a lot of people are going to give this phone a miss.
Wonder what Nokia is upto rgds a new communicator 9500 / 9300 are pretty dated now
its not as small as you think. it just seems much much shorter. i used to think the same before i saw this picture. sure pdas must have a big screen, but this screen more than accomodates your needs.
Biger screen mean more power is needed, and once you got biger screen, you may say it's too big for your hands to carry... anyhow, plus SE put 5 different radio together on one PDA as p990 and the first ever...
to marcus well i dont know if your a company owner dude i maybe be not bright but i still own a company my friend its all about the big screen with a pen thats why thay call it PDA marcus so we can see every thing on the screen i know it sounds stupid and it needs faters procesor like 800 mgz maybe i think this might go for 600 pounds i dont really call this a pda
i think this SE new series has a nice model but i think SE need more spectaculer smartphone more than these
English as an international lang. is loaded along with all others.
it may not compatible (i wanted to know too if it works) with Verizon or Sprint as they must have their pre-load program for the network, but for sure to work work GSM carriers in U.S.
Price is very important, I will not pay more than $700 on this phone, on top of this $700 you need to add a 2GB memory stick and it'll cost around $200 today since it only came with a 64MB, that make this phone 2 $900... a laptop pc wih 1.8GB CPU price... Just for portability...
So, I'd like to ask SE "How much?"...
umm... agree with the two below me. anyways, im moving to japan and was wondering if i get the phone in Japan will it work like an english phone (language, text, etc.)? if i come back to the US will it be compatible with the service providers like verizon, sprint, etc.? thank you. p990 looks great.
are you guys kidding me! did you actually look at the size comparison? the space they remove is so small it shouldnt make a difference at all. and it was a good move because the keyboard on the p910 seems frail and this will definitely give you a more firm grasp while typing. sure i wouldnt have minded a bigger screen but the up outweighs the down. just a 2 megapixel camera!? thats like the best resolution for phones right now. much better than the p910s. also, it was right for them to use flash because it makes the phone much lighter. it has enough memeory for a phone, but if you want more just put in the 1GB memory stick. i dont know if you guys really dont like it, or your just mad because they come out with a bette $800 model every year. im sure sony ericsson took into consideration all these problems. im sure they dont spend millions on r&d just for the heck of it. if they come out with a newer model, expect it to be a much better one.
