Near the middle of last year, Sony Ericsson unveiled the P910, a cellular-wireless handheld that ran Symbian’s UIQ interface.
This was Sony Ericsson’s first attempt to put a QWERTY keyboard on one of its handhelds. At the bottom of the device was a numberpad which could be flipped down to expose a small keyboard. Many said this wasn’t a very good design, as the keyboard was awkwardly placed (see picture below).
Supposedly, the company is currently working on a new design that that will have the keyboard built into the body of the device, not on the flip panel, according to Mobile-Review.com.
Other changes from its predecessor include Wi-Fi wireless networking and a megapixel camera.
Otherwise this device, which will reportedly be called the P915, will be quite similar to the P910.
This means it will have a 208-by-320 pixel touchscreen, Bluetooth, and support for GSM/GPRS networks. Reportedly, it will have no 3G capabilities.
It will use the UIQ user interface, which has been designed for pen-based, Touchscreen handhelds such as this one.
It is not known when the P915 will be available.
