Sony Ericsson has launched its new high-end smartphone in the form of the P910i.

Combining phone, PDA, e-mail and web browsing functionality, the P910i is a step up from Sony Ericsson’s well-received P900 model and now features an extra input method thanks to its tiny fold-down keyboard.

The P910i features triple band GSM/GPRS phone coverage and its memory has been bumped up too, taking its RAM offer from the 16MB offered by the P900 up to 64MB. The phone comes bundled with a 32MB Memory Stick Duo and supports this Memory Sticks up to 1GB in size.

The P910i runs on Symbian’s OS v7.0, while 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’s Runestone technology also allows messages, pictures, calendars and contacts to be printed directly to a Bluetooth-enabled HP printer.

“Our smartphones combine PDA and telephony functions without compromising on quality, functionality or ease-of-use,” said Jan Wäreby, corporate executive vice president and head of sales and marketing at Sony Ericsson. “Add to that the widest variety of available applications and input methods, and you have a tool that satisfies the most demanding mobile professional.”

The new P910i costs $843 and will be fully reviewed in the December issue of Windows Middle East magazine, on sale across the region throughout November.
