Sony Ericsson P1

This week saw the new super smartphone by Sony Ericsson finally officially unveiled. Not called the P700 as presumed, the P1 still looks as good as expected.
The next step in the Sony Ericsson P-series development is finally officially unveiled – after months of sneak previews and information leaks. The Sony Ericsson P1 is based on the Symbian 9.1 OS and runs with the UIQ 3.0 interface. It doesn’t boast some revolutionary features, but it’s all about the complete set of function it offers.
Those include a 2.6" 262K color touchscreen TFT display with a QVGA resolution, a 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus, 3G support with video calls and Wi-Fi, just to name a few. The goodies don’t end here and they continue with stereo Bluetooth, QWERTY keyboard (like the one seen in Sony Ericsson M600), USB, FM radio and a Memory Stick Micro M2 slot.

System wise, it has a 208 MHz processor just as Sony Ericsson P990 and Sony Ericsson M600, but carries twice the RAM (128MB) plus it has 160MB of integrated memory available to the user. As with all UIQ 3 smartphones it is equipped with handwriting recognition system, MS Office documents viewer/editor and it even has a business card scanner application, that as we saw in P990 works reliably to scan a business card and to insert the data from it directly to your Contacts list.

“In one sense the Sony Ericsson P1 is an evolution of our P-series smartphones, as it pushes forward the best attributes of its predecessors,” says Steve Walker, Head of Product Marketing at Sony Ericsson. “At the same time there are also significant improvements in design, speed and battery performance.”    

The Sony Ericsson P1 is a Tri-Band GPRS 900/1800/1900 and UMTS 2100 handset with Wi-Fi 802.11b. It will be available in selected markets from Q3 2007.
