Sony Ericsson P910 ReleasedSony Ericsson today announced the P910 smartphone, a Symbian OS v7.0-powered update to the popular P800/P900 phones. In addition to the 262K color screen and integrated keyboard the P910 features expanded memory (64MB, up from 16MB) and supports Sony’s Memory Stick Duo Pro up to 1GB.
To add to the good news, Sony Ericsson has posted their fourth quarterly profit in a row for fiscal Q2. (Photo courtesy Gizmodo).
I have to admit to coveting this phone after being a devout P800 user for so long. But what’s the deal with the keyboard? It looks a little small for my mitts. What about the whole “PDA is dead” thing? Do ‘smart’phones like the P910 drive another nail into the coffin of PDAs? Sound off in the comments below (no reg. req’d).

This just in:

July 14 (Bloomberg) — Apple Computer Inc., the maker of iMac computers and iPod digital music players, said third-quarter profit more than tripled as surging iPod sales drove revenue for the period to an eight-year high. The shares rose 6.6 percent.
Net income rose to $61 million, or 16 cents a share, from $19 million, or 5 cents, a year earlier, Cupertino, California- based Apple said in a statement. Sales rose 30 percent to $2.01 billion. Profit and sales may beat analyst estimates this quarter, Apple said.
IPod shipments rose threefold amid “staggering” demand for the mini version of the music player, which Apple will start selling in Europe this month, said Timothy Cook, Apple’s worldwide vice president for sales. The popularity of iPods helped reignite demand for Macintosh computers, fueling the best quarter for shipments in almost four years.
