Sony-Ericsson's P990 is supposed to ship in Q1 of 2006, but not everyone is going to get what they expected. Rather than risk using a whole new design, concept, and formula for a new smartphone, SE decided they'd rather just play it safe and heap on the goods. One unique feature that stands out is the ability to access both 3G and Wi-Fi networks simultaneously, something never done before on a smartphone, SE claims. It boasts 80 MB of internal memory and a 64 MB removable memory stick, which is perfect for all that e-mail building up. As expected, a built-in keypad will be included for easy typing and will even feature a built-in business card scanner. Lots of new goodies, but nothing extremely new or interesting. Damn you, P990. Hopefully before production starts, some interesting additions or changes can be made.
