By: Callum Liam

The Sony Ericsson P990i is designed to be first and foremost a great mobile phone. It offers all the benefits of UMTS including video calling, high-bandwidth multi-media downloads and the ability to browse the Internet with full HTML pages which can be viewed in landscape on the new Opera 8 browser. The P990 is prepared for all major push e-mail clients enabling full e-mail access with attachments, anywhere, anytime.

The Sony Ericsson P990i mobile phone comes with the obligatory MP3 player, and has a dedicated music button on its side to switch the phone over to music mode. The phone also comes with a stereo FM radio capable of supporting 20 different channels, as well as RDS. The Sony Ericsson P990 mobile phone has multiple text input methods enabling it to support all users' needs and preferences. Reading them is made simpler on the large 2.8 inch QVGA touch screen. Multi tasking, being able to browse the Internet, send and receive files at the same time as talking is now possible due to the enhanced capabilities of the new software platform.

Memory has been extended in order to handle all multi-media downloads and e-mail attachments. The P990i now has up to 80 MB user free memory and 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 of the phone will also significantly improve the efficiency and flexibility of applications such as e-mail, browsing the Internet/Intranet and video telephony.
