P990i ready for launch
Sony Ericsson’s P990i smartphone has been scheduled for a UK launch this August, following nearly six months of delays.
The handset follows Sony Ericsson’s top-selling P910i, combining touchscreen functionality with a QWERTY keyboard, push email and top photo and music functionality. It features a more traditional styling and rounded feature set than the manufacturer’s M600i, carrying a fold-down keypad similar to that on the P910i.
The device was initially set to reach the market in early 2006, but Sony Ericsson pulled back the device to tweak its software and extended its push email support. It is expected to carry a sim-free price tag of around £450.
