Sony Ericsson P910a

While we've spent a ton of ink talking about the PalmOne Treo 650 and the Motorola MPx220, the fact remains that there are quite a few smart phone options out there. Take, for example, the Sony Ericsson P910a, the successor to the likable P900. Running on the Symbian 7.0 operating system, the P910a is a full-fledged GSM device that does almost everything you can ask for. But while some smart phones are more PDA than phone and others more phone than PDA, the P910a seems to be equal parts phone, PDA, and multimedia device. With a high-resolution display, an integrated (but only VGA) camera, Bluetooth support, and massive battery life, the only thing holding back the P910a is a hefty price tag of more than $700. Of course, this device is so chock-full of features that it may actually be worth it; also, the cost should come down once the handset is picked up by a carrier.

The good:
Amazingly long battery life; great call quality; large and vibrant screen; full QWERTY keyboard; tons of features.

The bad:
Hefty; flimsy flip-down keyboard; sluggish WAP browser; low-resolution camera.

What's it for:
Making calls; sending e-mail; storing contacts; organizing your data; connecting to the Web.

Who's it for:
Professionals and gadget types who need mobile access to their e-mail and PIM data.

Business use:
On-the-go execs will welcome the P910a's Bluetooth and speakerphone, as well as its compatibility with enterprise Outlook and Lotus Notes servers.

Essential extras:
Car charger; wireless Bluetooth headset and media viewer; car kit; leather case; desk stand.

The bottom line:
The Sony Ericsson P910a offers road warriors a superb smart phone and multimedia alternative to devices such as the Treo 650 and the BlackBerry.
