P990 Release Countdown Watch

Kudos to Martin Little for diligantly badgering various organisations to discover the release dates for the Sony Ericsson P990 SIM-free, and on Orange, Vodafone, and the other major UK networks. The current status on P990 availability can be found on the P990 page, Martin's findings up until 15th Aug 2006 are detailed below:

Tuesday 15th August

The Sony Ericsson P990 in SIM-free format is now available fairly widely across Europe and certain other parts of the world and is expected to spread further in the coming days.

Latest news from the UK networks suggests that there are issues with the firmware, so it will not be released until September. Vodafone is currently quoting 8th September and Orange 22nd September. Here begins the next big countdown.
