    Depends on the price: tt's quite likely the former will fall in price
    bigtime when the latter is launched. The difference otherwise isn't that
    much, mainly the small reduction in size. Other than that, there are a
    number of smallish but welcome changes: better stylus, slightly better
    camera (still 0.3mpixel though), probable compatibility with ms duo pro
    (thus the ability to use >128mb expansion cards), etc.

    Have a read of the review at www.mobile-review.com , that's probably the
    best piece on it so far.

    Are you implying the P800 won't use cards larger than 128MB!?

    If so I've been sold a dummy by the providers that gave me this phone.

    Which size of Memory Stick are you using? Do bigger sticks than 128MB work
    with P800?

    Thanks,
    Werner

    Memory stick and Memory stick duo (what the P800 uses) only go up to 128mb -
    it seems the architecture can't handle more than that.

    However, Sony have just introduced a new memorystick pro standard with
    capacities theoretically into several gigabytes. The smallsize version of
    this, called the Pro Duo, will physically fit inside the P800 but doesn't
    work at present. Some people think there might be a firmware update for this
    to be possible - personally I'm doubtful, cos there's really not much
    economic benefits for SonyEricsson to do this.

    Another possibility is that they might release a Select version of the Duo,
    which essentially gives you two banks of 128mb in a single stick. You can't
    use all the memory at once - to access stuff in the other bank you'd have to
    flip a switch.

    OK, hope that all made sense. Sony have really made a cockup of their whole
    flash memory format - far, far too many types of memorystick, and all of
    them _massively_ overpriced compared to securedigital and compactflash.
