Sony Ericsson has announced the launch of the P910. It comes with a new thumb keyboard on the inside of the flip, the five-way Jog Dial for navigating the phone’s functions or browsing the web; the natural handwriting with stylus on the colour touchscreen and software keyboard.
The company is collaborating with a range of e-mail providers, including Smartner, IBM, Extended Systems, Visto, RIM BlackBerry, Seven and IntelliSync.
New capabilities such as web browsing, e-mailing, PDA and a range of entertainment options puts more demand than ever on the phone’s available user memory. Sony Ericsson has taken this into account and expanded the internal memory from 16MB to 64MB and included a 32MB Memory Stick Duo in the box. The P910 supports up to 1GB Memory Stick Duo Pro, creating almost endless possibilities to store and share images, video, music and business data.
The P910 is based on Symbian OS v7.0, and the UIQ user interface which is based on Symbian OS. As a result P910 offers the widest possible selection of applications on any smartphone available today.
New free or trial additions include Avantgo (offline browsing), Media Viewer (direct access to news such as Financial Times) and Promyzer (real-time market quotes and stock trading). HP Runestone allows messages, pictures, calendars and contacts to be printed directly to a Bluetooth-enabled HP printer. Wayfinder is a navigation tool included on the CD, which works as a turn by turn in-car navigation system when connected to a Bluetooth GPS receiver. The P910 already comes with the Opera browser, offering a superior Internet experience that presents the full Internet perfectly within the screen width.
The P910 includes a digital video and still camera and a range of entertainment options. PC synchronisation of the calendar and address book can be handled over USB, infrared, Bluetooth or even remotely over the air through SyncML. The colour screen now has 262,000 colours and is well suited for picture viewing and editing.
The P910 will start shipping globally in Q3 and exists with five different keyboard variants: Qwerty, Qwertz, Azerty, Russian and Greek.

P910i Triple Band 900/1800/1900 MHz
