good but bad too!
after using this fone for some months, i'd say it comes with a couple of upgrades but also with lots of defects. it supports very few media formats and the speakers really really suck. for all the hi tech it supports it should have a better processor and more ram cause it gets way too slow sometimes. the battery discharges real quick. i think the front camera should also support image and video capture.
i'l pick it over my p910 but then i get to miss the p910 pretty often.
the golf game is good though.
I own this phone and its just too good. Its very user friendly and the best part is that the whole phone can be used via its jog dail. The speakers kind of suks but who cares, it has everything else.
I bought it a few months ago, and was very disapointed because of all the bugs it had. But after I updated it, it's perfect.
It really does everything it sets out to, very well and fast compared to other phones (especially as compared to the N73, which I have seen in action).
Good phone, I would recommend it to anyone.

My SE P990i works very well
Although I read a lot of negative comments on this phone, but on my experience the phone works well. though slow in operation sometimes, what you expect from heavily pack PDA like this. BEfore, I used to buy Nokia smartphones, but now I think SE surpasses Nokia with this unit.
TOP CLASS PHONE
i'm def going to purchase this phone soon as my contract expires, i have a WHITE w900i and it's a gr8 phone, i've recieved loads of comments off people, but i'm now looking for a smart phone, there's loads of downloadable features for the p990 on sony's website! i will always stick to sony, the quality is top class and they are the best as far as i am concerned in technology, but especially build quality, i hate cheap looking phones, no matter what features they have and i think most brands are poor quality! well done sony... YET AGAIN! ;-)
Smart phone fan? then go for it!!
I think this phone is great and i bet it handles MAX performance.. and you may notice that it has a much smaller touch screen but actually it's not allot different in the size, as you can see the screen is way up to the top near the speaker, not like the previous versions, that's why they added the keyboard and reduced the screen length a little bit and it's hardly noticed from the screen size of previous phones.. but in the end i might skip this one and go for the Motorolla Q or the iMate KJam..
This phone is worth the money,,here in sweden it cost about 840$. Iam going to get it free from my work.
The reason why I chose this phone is because the W-lan fuction. I had that thougt about getting the w900 with alot of memory....but noooo Maybe more memory like the W900 but again noooo. The design is also very nice.
Easy chose in the end.
what happened to the wide screen?! i've been wanting this phone a long time but now that the wide screen is gone, i'm a little bit confuse. i'm thinking of grabbing w900 rather. what do you think guys? both 3g phones? bout good camera? any suggestions?
I love it
I was waiting for this model from long time coz of the Wi-Fi issue, well it would be better if they made models of the same model like excluding the CAM or the FM coz i don`t care about the Camera alot, i care alot about the BT & Wi-Fi more.
i heared that there is a firmware update for the P900 which allowes using more than 128MB memory, but the company didn`t release it coz it conflicts with the P910i, and there is the BT bug that Auto Accepts from ANYone which permission, which i would love if they update the firmware to fix it.
thank you all, and am gonna buy this new p990 with the others that i have the P900 & the P910i.
lack of taste
P990i look nice,but the screen too smaller than the previous model,the key pad also come back to the p900 model,its looks cheap and urgly look.the features is ok

I've been waiting for this 4 ages but damn its ugly, and what have they done to that lovely wide screen?? replaced it with a keyboard!! who uses the that? And they've gone back to the p900 keys too, damn you sony-ericsson. Glad its 3g though and the camera's better but I think I'll have to wait until they give it a facelift.
gud but not the best
sonyericsson has come with a great fone this time round,but then it looks similar to the p910.i got the p910 some months back and looking at this one now,i m already tired of the p910.u guys shd change the shape or sumtin,u make our fones pass out n look outdated too fast,n it didnt come cheap.u know what i mean.
thumbs up anyways.
Sony Ericsson P990
This is a great phone from all indications. I have not seen it, therefore cannot assess the sound quality nor the RF performance, or even the financial value is for me not possible to know.
But i am impressed as i have been waiting a long time for this.
