Sony Ericsson P910a
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

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
