    Hi.
    I am supposed to get a P900 on my contract upgrade next month, but I got a
    phone call from the manageress at a cellphone store here in South Africa,
    she told me that she got a fax from her head-office saying that they're
    releasing the P910 in October and the P900 will be discontinued.
    Am I just slow, or has SonyEricsson already released the P910? I've done
    searches online for it, and by the looks of it, it isn't official yet. Now
    how can a service provider (especially in South Africa) already be saying
    that they're getting it in October?
    Anyone that can share some info here please?
    I'll definitely be going to the manageress tomorrow to see the fax for
    myself.
    TIA.
    Rapidblue.

    I guess you've probably seen this stuff:

    BTW, who's your provider in SA? I'll be visiting Cape Town in August,
    and was wondering if GPRS and MMS was supported there...

    Thanks,

    Thanx Andrew.

    Still quite funny how the distributors are so certain that it's being
    released in October and all I can find on the net is speculation that it
    might be released. Don't know how the distributors came up with a date, but
    anyway.

    We have 3 networks here in South Africa - VodaCom (the best and most
    popular, which I use), MTN and Cell-C.
    I know for a fact that GPRS and MMS are available on VodaCom and MTN. I'm
    not that clued up with Cell-C though - they're pretty new (and useless, if I
    might add).

    I hope you enjoy your stay here :-)

    Rapidblue.

    OK, I'll be sure to use VodaCom when I'm down there -- too bad that
    Fido, my Canadian provider, has no GPRS or MMS agreements with anyof
    the SA providers :-(

    Thanks for the info, though!

    Nice to see a keyboard of sorts, but hope their PIM is an improvement
    on the 900. Never bought the 900 as Contacts restricted to just 3
    numbers as I understand it - heck I've got more than that on my T98.
    My Organiser has people with a dozen numbers, plus four addresses and
    all sorts of other details (Notes) and any attempt for a phone to be
    also a PDA will need to replicate that (a bit like the early Nok
    9000s)

    Somehow you 've got it terribly wrong. You can have a ton of different
    numbers for each entry (when you *seem* to run out, you just add more) ,
    with descriptions (fax, home, mobile, work, etc), plus detailed address
    (street address, postal code, area, city, country), and all this twice - one
    for the person's personal details and one for their work.
    And if you still need more, there's the notes page on each entry, where you
    can store any additional information you want - plus a page for images.

    If that was the only reason you never bought the P900, I think you 've been
    missing out too long !

    Thanks for the info Nick

    I must have made a serious error reading Ericsson's website where they
    said "The advanced Sony Ericsson Phonebook - Contacts. You can store
    three phone numbers for each contact - home, work and mobile. You can
    also add their company name, title and email address. The perfect
    phone book."

    I didn't investigate further for a number of reasons. Lack of
    keyboard, no easy upgrade from current PDA, quite frankly I'd prefer a
    phone Without a camera, and I'd prefer CF add-on ability rather than
    just Mem Stick (as I have abunch of CF cards). It seemed best to wait
    and see what came along further on in time and in the meantime
    perservere with my T68 + MC218.

    Maybe will look at 910 in a few months when can get one to play with.
    We all live in hope.

    Glad I could be of help. If you 're looking for something to take advantage
    of your CF cards, you may want to look elsewhere though. Because, the way I
    understand the business world (ok, it doesn't take a rocket scientist !) no
    product with the word "Sony" in its name ("SonyEricsson") will ever use
    anything other than memory sticks for storage/memory expansion. It's a shame
    though, and I 'd still recommend test-driving the P910 when it arrives later
    this year, as this will also have a thumb QWERTY keyboard.

    However it goes, good luck in your next phone/PDA choice.

    910 is out. And sadly, the additional phone and email fields are NOT synced.
    This has the effect, unless I'm mistaken, of making it impossible to
    properly sync on two different PCs.
