If Sony Ericsson was installing the 2MP camera on their P910i they would probably have had one of the BEST phones in the market. Don’t like keyboard on the unit. It was perfect where it was, and a bigger screen.
thats it! im gonna sell my Nokia 6630! before i used to have the P800 and then i sold it cause it has a poor image quality then i bought the P910i and once again the image quality is... lets say "errr..." you guys know what i mean... so now oh my god they have this 2MP P990?! all i can say is... WOW... i bow to you Sony Ericsson Peeps! i'll definitely buy this when it comes out!
My brother and I have a P900 & P910. I LOVE the P900 and chose not to move up to the 910 because the 910 had a lousy numeric keypad. I see that in the P990 SE has decided to bring the P900 style numeric keypad instead of the P910 type.
They seem to have done the WORST disservice to users by moving the P910's keyboard from the inside flip portion onto the screen area, reducing significantly the beauty and usability of the screen, compared to the P900, on which I can literally view full web pages on Opera.
The P900 and 910 had PATHETIC cameras so this P990's camera enhancement is good, but still not enough to make me leave my P900. Yes, WiFI is useful, but I already have that on my Nokia 9500 Communicator.
I HATE Nokia as a designer of low performing CPU based phones, but for keyboard, decent camera and WiFi the 9500 is more than enough.
If you intend to spend $1200 on the P990, be VERY sure you are using it for LOTS and LOTS of WiFi based TYPING applications, otherwise the smaller screen makes it much less usable (at least to me) than the P900.
That's just IN MY HUMBLE OPINION (Blog at http://imrananwar.blogspot.com ). Comments welcome.
hummmmmmmmm great phone but i will love to ask for the Price i think i have to sell my p910i to get this lol
Ladies and gentlemen, THIS is the phone that will set the standard for all future PDA smart phones, it has EVERYTHING except for a TV output and GPS which will make every other PDA phones a joke. SE leads by example!
Hold your breath ladies & gentlemen, be prepared to fork out your life savings for this neat piece of tech heaven, will launch at about US$1,288 in end december.
I have decided to buy P990 over W900, both have 2mp camera and 3G but P990 is a Symbian Smartphone and it have WiFi !!!
I love you Sony Ericsson !!!
Really cool phone....but how much it will cost for a cool phone like this? it will cost a lot
The screen is a bit smaller but just enough for this GREAT phone. For those who want bigger screen, better get your eyes checked. This is so far, the best phone with the best size. Packed with almost everything you need. I've had a Nokia before but frankly, i'm not satisfied with it. I'm a gadget freak and i know what i want. It's a great upgrade for my P910. But hell, who said i'm gonna sell my P910?! It's a great collection. I'm not saying you should buy this phone.. Determine what you want. 'Coz maybe you don't need a complicated phone after all.
this way cool bro , all i want on cell is in here the data speed is ok 384 kbps (UTMS) you can use it as modem and it is ok
the screen is a little bit small but it is ok
p910 display is 320*208
p990 display is 240*320
so whats the difference????????
but u can see that p910 has a larger screen area
For people who's having dilemma of what phone to buy. W900, P990 or Treo 670 etc.
Please Remember a few points guys.
1. It is hard to keep up with the technology trend. It is reality that the phone you buy today will become "obsolete" in a short time.
2. Think long term use.
3. Be Picky, Be very very very Picky when choosing a phone. If you still cannot decide what phone to buy, let's say w900 or p990, then don't buy it until you are so damn sure.
4. Avoid Buyer's Remorse. IMPORTANT point! If after thinking and thinking and thinking you still can't decide which phone you like better, I suggest that you don't buy at all.
I know that it is still early to consider buying these upcoming phones. But I hope these few tips could ease the dilemma of some of you guys. For credibility purposes, I have used P800,910, Treo650, Nokia 6680, S700, HP Ipaq 6515 and currently using w800. I know, I am a handphone freak!
I understand your excitement in choosing whether you should buy w900 or p990. Dang! SE keeps bombarding us with cool phones. Could you say Dilemma???. But anyways, the answer to your question is simple. Ask yourself, what is utmost important to you for having the handphone. are u looking for functionality features? cool looking phones? Fashion? You want to get people attentions? Be honest with yourself. Lemme clarify the few distinct differences though. P990, is usually a multifunction phone that also acts as your daily organizers. While the W900 is a Walkman phone, smaller and cool shiny looking phone (reminds me of iPod Nano hehee.) P990 has touch screen, W900 doesnt. P990 has WLAN, w900 doesnt. For me, I would go for P990. Its obviously a better phones in terms of Functionality. Hey, lemme tell u something. I am currently using W800. It is cool at first, the sharp 256k color display, auto-focusing 2MP camera. But guess what, my enthuasiasm for the phone quickly wears off after first month of using it. Lemme clarify that I love the w800. But, still, you know... we constantly want better, nicer, cooler things. So, my advice is you wait until the beginning of next, then you can decide abt which phone u want. As you know, you can change your decision in an instant. One day, you could ponder about how cool the w900 is... you keep looking at it, then you also want to make sure whether p990 is a good phones. After checking the features in p990, you fell in love with it... god... stop it. Ask your self, Do you want a phone that Turn Heads? or do you want a phone full of features? It's your choice. Don't be too hasty in your choice. Be wise. For me, I'll choose P990 though. God, who's the head director of Design in SE?
Very interested point of views.
As on P910 you need to flip keyboard to see the full screen. This phone is SUPER. Can waite to buy it.
