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.

It does the same thing now, it gives you a bigger display. But the point now is that not both the keypad and the numpad are on the same 'external' part that it only attaches to the main phone with two hinches. The previous models are problematic, because the pad weighs much less than the phone and so after a bit of time, the hinches CRACK. With this new design, this won't happen, because when you type you don't hold the phone from the cover part and so you don't put strain on it.
