Posted by Chris in Uncategorized.

p800, p900, p900i and now the p990, (due for release Q1 2006) based on the same proven concept and recognisable form factor. This means that the p990 will inherit the chunky design of it’s predisessors, but this doesn’t worry sony, they say according to research, people like to get the full from their phones, and they difinately will do that with this feature packed phone.

They didn’t call it “Smartphone” for nothing. Memory has been extended in order to handle all multi-media downloads and e-mail attachments. Memory Stick PRO Duo up to 2GB is available in the market and the P990 now has up to 80 MB user free memory. A 64 MB Memory Stick PRO Duo is included in the box, preloaded with a VPN client and trial version of a virus scan package.

The combination of UMTS and WLAN features will also significantly improve the efficiency and flexibility of applications such as e-mail, browsing the Internet/Intranet and video telephony. WLAN, available in hot spots all over the world, acts as a complement to high speed 3G services, enabling widespread access to corporate network services.

Additionally the 2 Megapixel camera with autofocus, digital zoom, photo light plus the bright TFT screen and video recording provide a high quality imaging experience.
