Being an Apple hater made me love things irrationally. Some of them are simple interfaces, pixilated displays, and here’s the latest one, the Sony Ericsson P910i. Why do I love the P910i you say? It’s because it was one of the first phone to have a big touch screen on it (well, if you remove that obstructive folding keypad) that debunked the claim that Apple started these kind of form factors.
Anyway, I stumbled upon this phone earlier this week, and I planned to do a video regarding its user interface, but no, I tried charging it, but it won’t work. It won’t boot up anymore. Bummer, right?
It was a premium phone back then, 2004 to be exact. It only has a VGA camera, which is a decent resolution that time. It runs at 156Mhz processor and with 64MB of RAM. Don’t you just miss when these kinds of specs don’t matter to a phone?
I decided to compare it with my Samsung Intercept. Being a high-end phone back then, it is quite unfair to compare it to a mid-range phone today. But you’ll know enough on how far we’ve come today.
I can’t stress the fact that the Samsung Intercept is only a mid-range phone today, but still, it outperformed the P910i in every aspects. It’s also lighter and smaller, compared to the P910i, but the Intercept already includes a slide out keyboard. Take a look: at them along with the Zune HD:
