    Features (P800)

    Sony Ericsson didnít provide a features list for the P800, so Iíll go through the general ones.

    The P800 features a huge screen, which is one of the first things youíll notice about the phone. Itís crazy large, Iíd say almost twice as big as the 3650! The screen looks just incredibleÖnothing else to say.

    Insert "p8002"

    The Ericsson P800

    The P800 also has a camera on the back, and like the 3650, can take pictures up to 640x480. Once again, the quality is not great, but itís fine for e-mailing. I found that the 3650 took better quality pictures over the P800. No video capabilities on this model.

    Back view of the Ericsson P800

    The P800 has a whopping 12MB internal storage space (almost 4 times more then the 3650), as well as another 16MB in a Sony Memory Stick Duo. The memory stick included is not normal sized, much smaller in fact. If you want to put it in a Vaio PC for transferring pictures, files, etc, youíll need to use the included adaptor.

    Connectivity is much like the 3650. Youíve got Bluetooth (which, may I add, works great), IR, and, unlike any phone Iíve ever seen, a cradle. The cradle not only charges your P800, but it also syncs to your PC. You can upload files, sync your Outlook (or Lotus Notes), calendar, contacts, notes, applications, pretty much whatever you need. IncredibleÖ

    The P800 also has itís multimedia features. Unlike the 3650, the P800 can play MP3ís with no additional software needed. It can also play video (as well as streaming video). MP3 quality was excellent (when using the included headphones), and video playback was good.

    The P800 can view Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and Acrobat formats right on the phone. Pretty darn cool.

    And can you say stylus? The P800 is the only phone that uses a stylus for navigation. The stylus is pretty cheap-feeling, but Sony Ericsson includes 3 extras in case you break or lose the other.

    There are also the standard features on this high-end phone, such as Java, SMS, MMS, e-mail, polyphonic rings, speakerphone, voice dialing, and WAP 2.0.

    The P800 uses the Symbian 70 OS, one step ahead of the 3650. Iíll go into this later.
