Since the days of the Newton, I’ve been waiting for a killer gadget that combines the functionality of a good PDA with the communication abilities of a mobile phone. The Sony Ericsson P800 was launched into exactly this gap in the market with much fanfare. Does it live up to the hype? Well, no it doesn’t, but it is a good solution to carrying all those phone numbers in your pocket, and it does a bit more too.
The P800 is a combined mobile phone, electronic organiser, MP3 player and camera in a package that’s advertised as the “office in your pocket”. As the owner of an aging mobile phone, an ancient Palm, a Rio 600 MP3 player and no digital camera, the P800 had the appeal of combining all these functions in a single unit that could edit documents on the move and maybe even surf the Web in extremis.
