Sony Ericsson P990i hits UK this month


P990i_1Can’t say I’ve ever used a Sony Ericsson phone but if I did, it would likely be the P990i that’s expected in the UK this month. MobilitySite drops the specs on us and this is a pretty solid feature-set running on Symbian OS 9.1:

  • 2 megapixel camera with 30 fps recording and video-conferencing
  • 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen (320 x 240)
  • Integrated Bluetooth & WiFi connectivity
  • USB 2.0
  • 60 MB of usable memory
  • Stereo FM radio
  • Included 64 MB Memory Stick Duo card
  • 3G/UMTS
  • RSS reader software
  • Business card scanner

For UK readers, you might want to check out the P990i product page for full specs. Looks like a sweet phone to me!




It can now synch categories with MS Outlook.

I used a SonyEricsson P800 for almost 2 years and it still remains (even after an ETEN M500, Samsung i730, and my current Treo 700w) the easiest most integrated and powerful “smart phone” i have used. The P990 is three generations improved on the P800.

The most significant improvement, IMO, is actually not in the handset itself, but in the changes to the Sybian OS. It can now synch categories with MS Outlook. That was the reason I left the P800 in the first place. I use categories exetnsively (ala Getting Thingds Done(GTD) and Michael Linenberger’s Total Workday Control) to classift tasks appointments and contacts. It is a must have for me.

I have been watching this phone in development for almost a year and am excited to see it come out.
