Making its public debut at The Smartphone Show 2005 is Sony Ericssons P990, featuring Symbian OS 9.1, and UIQ 3.0, along with 3G and Wi-Fi support, 2 megapixel camera and a QVGA screen. We've spent some time with this flagship device, and we like what we've seen so far.
Going to Symbian's Smartphone Show? Fancy meeting up for an informal chat the night before with the All About Symbian crew, all our friends, and some demos of new technology and software? All over a nice beer? Maybe win some nice prizes? Then we'll see you at London's Crosse Keys Pub on Monday 10th October.
Of course we’ve talked already about Symbian and what it’s partners will (hopefully) be doing, so let me take you on a flying run around the floor to see what catches my eye and what deserves a bit more exploring once we all get to the ExCeL Centre.
One of the more popular applications on both the online stores and bundled with the device is Quickoffice. Craig Senick has been with the product for many years, and All About Symbian sat down with him to find out more about the Office Suite.

There’s a huge change in Symbian OS with OS 9.1 coming out. While the directors and marketing managers will be prowling the floor of The Smartphone Show for the latest edge available to them, the people who do all the work, the programmers, will all have the chance to learn about the new OS, API calls and the low level magic they can use from the people who programmed it. Symbian themselves.
