    I guess I'm asking forlornly, but anyone happen to have/know a more
    accurate release date for the P990 than Q1 2006 (which presumably is
    anything up to April?). Just trying to decide whether to get something
    else in the mean time or to hang on.


    Cheers

    There is no firm release date as yet, and if you go by what has happened in
    the past with some SE phones being delayed it may not be out in Q1 anyway.
    I've got a P900 which is 2 years old now and I intend waiting for the P990
    regardless of how long it takes. I'd rather they delay it and get it right
    instead of rushing it and releasing it with dodgy firmware. Either way it
    certainly looks like it'll be worth the wait.

    This thread is old, but I will answer it anyway.

    As for now, the P990 was delayed to Q2 2006
    I don't know if it will be worth the wait though.
    I was waiting for it myself, and was about to spend my money on it on it's release, but now that it was delayed... I won't pay even 1/2 price on it.
    It will be old tech when it gets out, look at all the phones now released and will be released on summer 2006.
    SE say that the release was delayed so they can add more features like extensive support for push mail, anti-virus and business card scanner.
    All this features look like software upgrades and as such SE should release the phone and let people to upgrade it.

    LOL, I won't wait for a phone that have no advanteges except business card scanner... it looks like a nice gimmic and nothing more (for me at least).
    Don't forget that this phone is not backward compatible, P910 applications will run on it.
    True enough, applications will be available for it soon enough, but again, release date (estimated) of June 2006... its too late

    The P990 won't even support HDSPA. There goes the intention for the P990 to be the leading phone on the market.
