Yes, we know that Expansys' release dates tend to be, shall we say, moving targets. Call us optimistic, but their UK site's currently showing an estimated 4 days to availability, possibly putting units into the hands of patient British technophiles as early as this week. As a refresher, Sony Ericsson's latest top-of-the-range smartphone is currently in the process of pulling a BenQ P50
, having been announced nearly ten excruciating months ago. Be that as it may, the P990i will still be the best way to get yourself to the tippy top of the UIQ
hill and we don't put it past an American or two to import the thing -- despite lacking both GSM 850 and UMTS 850 / 1900.
