PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This phone could be placed by some as the most advanced smartphone to date (only some new, unreleased yet, PocketPC-phones come close in terms of features): Sony Ericsson announced the P990, based on Symbian 9.1. It supports UMTS, GSM/GPRS/3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, IrDA and it has an FM radio. It sports a 2.8" QVGA touchscreen, 80 MBs free storage, a 64 MB MemoryStickPRODuo (expandable to 4 GB), Blackberry Push Email, a QWERTY keyboard, and two cameras: a 2 MP on the back and a VGA on the front. For web browser it uses Opera 8.x.

I actually own the P910i. And I agree that the internal keyboard is useless. But not only because it's clunky, but because it's too small. I end either writing with the pen when I'm at home, and with the external keyboard when I'm on the move.

The problem is that with a smaller screen it gets even harder to write with the pen because I need place to write (even with the few extra pixels). Also the hand-writing recognition software is not as good as on the Mobile 2003 phones I've seen.

All in all, the new features are all welcome but I hope they will change this keyboard design with something more clever.
