Review Sony Ericsson P900

Part 1 >>>

Part 2 >>>

Sounds. Sound can be adjusted almost for every event which is very pleasing.

Games. Like in the P800 there is a good chess game in the new handset (adjustable game level; move records, SMS game). If you like more traditional games, play a game of Solitaire.

CommuniCorder.This application combines the possibility of taking pictures and video-recording. You can see the current shooting mode in the upper left angle of the screen. All settings can be selected for the current mode (resolution, brightness, contrast, picture quality, lighting conditions). So, you can adjust 5 profiles for different shooting modes which makes it very user-friendly.

The digital VGA camera allows pictures of the following resolutions: 640480, 320240, 160120 pixels. There are three types of picture quality: high, average and low. Below you can see pictures displaying different resolutions.

Using this application you can record small video clips. The resolutions are fixed, but its possible to set three types of picture quality and three types of sound quality. Besides, there are standard adjustments of brightness, contrast etc. Files are available in *.3gp format.

If you ask me, the quality of images was somewhat improved.

Pictures in different resolutions/quality>>>

You can create MMS-messages using this application which is comfortable if you often use this service.

Pictures. A photo album in which you can view photos as thumbnails or as a file list on the screen. Each file can be viewed in detail with information of its size and date. The picture will be shown in a full-screen mode, but you can also zoom the image but then youll need to scroll horizontally and vertically to view all parts of the image.

Impressions

Concerning reception quality this smartphone is comparable to its predecessor. It has no peculiarities and hence, problems. Loud ringtones and a good set of melodies allows the user to hear his/her phone outside and even in rather noisy places.

The new design, which was customed for business users, will be more suitable. The screen has been improved and it is still the only smartphone with a touchscreen made by a mobile phones manufacturer. This input opportunity makes it unique and as a result very flexible.

Finishing this review, in my opinion the P900 is not really a new phone, only an improved and renewed version of the P800. Taking into account that the P800 is the best smartphone available on the market today, the P900 is rather interesting. The P900 will be introduced on the market in November, and the UK is supposedly the first nation to try the P900 out. Shortly after that it will be available in other European countries. The expected price? 650 EUR. P900-units with fully localized Russian version (text input and interface) will be shipping in February 2004.

Next smartphone in this category from Sony Ericsson will be announced in the end of the summer 2004, which makes it a little early to acquire data about it. But among considerable features, well mention: improved camera quality, higher resolution, Wi-Fi support (discussed now). My guess is that well have to wait about six months, so lets leave it for now. And oh yes - one more smartphone a cheap version of the P900 aimed to young people will be announced. No-one knows really when this announcement is to take place. Official presentation of the P900 will be October 26th.
