Sony Ericsson P1 Follows Up P990 By Going 25% Smaller

If you're a fan of Sony Ericsson's P990 Symbian smartphone, you'll definitely scream like a little girl when you hear about the newest P1 phone. Not only is it 25% smaller than the 990, it's got a 3.2-megapixel camera, 512MB Memory Stick Micro slot, push email through BlackBerry Connect, Wi-Fi (802.11b), VoIP support, Symbian 9.1, 2.6-inch display, a quasi-QWERTY keyboard, Opera 8, Stereo Bluetooth A2DP, and 160MB of internal memory.

The most important surface change is probably the fact that it doesn't have the flip-open keyboard like the P990, but that's something you'll have to play with yourself to see if you prefer. Otherwise, it seems like Sony's got a great upgrade here with the P1. And yes, they've answered everyone's question about what they'd do when the numbers get to 999—wrap around again back to 1.

Bigger shots after the jump.

Press Release [Sony Ericsson]

DISCUSSION

SE Pissed on their chips as far as Im concerned with the abortion that was the P990... I used mine for a week, and its been in a draw ever since.. Lets just hope they a) manage to get this out within, say, a decade of announcing it and b)they manage to release it with an OS that isnt bugged to hell. I expect my PC to crash every so often. I *dont* expect my phone to do so several times a day...
