When I saw the headline this morning, I really thought that Sony Ericsson has launched the P990, but it wasn’t so. Actually, they revealed new features of their Wi-Fi enabled UMTS smartphone.
Features include a 262.000 color QVGA touch screen, push email, WLAN, Bluetooth 2.0, USB, Symbian 9.1 and UIQ 3.0 software platform, music player that supports MP3, AAC and AAC+ formats with a flight mode allowing you to listen to music while the phone is turned off.
Sony Ericsson has turned the P990’s 2 megapixel camera with autofocus into a Business Card Scanner, which uses a character recognition software to convert the scanned information from the card to contacts on your P990.
The Sony Ericsson P990 will contain 80MB of internal memory and 64MB will be located in the box. When this smartphone was first announced, the company said it only had a slot for 4GB removable memory. It seems that they’ve decided to double that, slot for up to 8 GB now being available.
The P990 will hopefully become available in Q2 2006. No price information revealed.
