I for one really loved this phone, it did last the 18 months of my contract which is always good, and it was packed with some quite awesome features, as well as being really distinct, and none else i knew ever had this phone, the battery life was agreeable, and the touch screen was easy to use. I used to hook this phone into my computer and download all my phot's on it, great feature. it also had a business card recognistion feature in hich when u toke a picture of someone's business card, it would save the picture as there contact picture, save there number in your phone book and save there email address too. there was a side scrolling vutton also which made it really easy when navigateing trhe web, the only downside to this phone was maybe the pen which was a blessing to start, but i sooon lost it, and had to grow my nails in order to use it.
Always being connected while on the move is now a normal part of working life. The Sony Ericsson P1 gives us the ability to handle your corporate or personal emails, contacts and calendar wherever you are.
The Sony Ericsson P1 lets you read and edit documents on the move, whether Microsoft Word, PowerPoint or Excel. It also ships with a desk stand and USB cable in-box, making it straightforward to synchronise with your PC.
Both UMTS and integrated WLAN provide for high-speed Web browsing and data downloads, plus email at a rate and performance that i enjoy from your office desktop.
Now this is what i like most, Web Browser that displays pages in horizontal, wide screen aspect. The large, touchscreen QVGA display can be seen and used even in bright environments due to the Transflective Display. The 3.2 megapixel camera takes great shots to store or share via Picture Blogging and is also a useful tool for work purposes. It does away with the need to collect stacks of business cards when travelling. Just take a close-up shot of a business card and the card scanner transfers the contact details directly into the phonebook.
Best seen as an alternative to the N95 and possibly the iPhone, the P1i is SE's flagship phone. What it does better than the N95 (this is the silver and purple, original N95 by the way) is the RAM. There's 128MB of RAM in it, which means that the out-of-memory errors with apps closing , and the phone restarting are a thing of the past. It's common to open the task manager and find that there are 12 applications running (in UIQ3 it's harder to close an application, in S60v3, I find that they close themselves down!) The build is also much more solid, and its qwerty rocker keypad offers faster text entry, which will attract Crackberry users. The Touchscreen is also welcome, which allows touch-screen web browsing, which is excellent with the free Opera Mini 4 browser, if not the bundled one, maybe not as great as the S60 one, but still good. The 3.2MP camera is not too shabby either, with better video recording than some SE phones of late. The handwriting recognition I prefer to Palm's as it's a bit more forgiving, but the keypad is the fastest way to enter text. You can add push email with either MS ActiveSync or Blackberry Connect. The Wi-Fi is "b" only, which is not really a problem, but this helps give this phone a better battery life, something that it totally unacceptable on the N95.
There is less software to choose from on the UIQ3 compared to S60v3, and if you really need GPS, there's a music remote with it built in as an accessory.
You get QuickOffice with it, allowing you to edit word and excel files, something that is far more comfortable with a touchscreen phone, another reason to shun the N95.
The interface is a little muddled and a bit quirky, as it needs a combination of screen-taps and jog-dial pushes, but is far more bearable than the UI disaster that is Windows Mobile.
However, if you really need HSDPA, and want to plug your phone into your TV, then the N95 is for you.
