Looks great, reliable
Backup and PC sync dreadful and very unreliable. Will not work with large memory sticks.
Sony Ericsson P900 - If you have McAfee on your PC expect trouble trying to backup. Fitst you will have to turn off the virus scanner and the firewall and ensure they don't start at reboot, then you have to reboot and then you have a one in three chance of being able to backup or install software. Sony Ericsson claim that the P900 syncs with Lotus Organizer so I bought it specially. BIG mistake!
Lotus Organizer has some very good points, BUT it is old software aimed at US executives. It won't even show the mobile phone numbers of your contacts as standard - you have to tweak each contact separately. And the diary software is incompatible with the P900 as it won't sync birthdays, anniversaries or other all day events or repeating events. What a shame! Great phone, rubbish software.
The P900 includes a nice little MP3 player. It comes with a 32Mb memory stick duo so doesn't have much room for music. And it won't work with memory sticks bigger than 64Mb. Again, what a shame.
