    Thats not quite the complete line up. There are a few other (better) ones due this year from SE. Such as the W900 and W910. Well, if engadget ae right anyway.

    i agree, my contract is due up in the middle part of the year and am starting to look at possible phone upgrades, i love the SE's, my last 4 phones have been them, but those dont look that appealing. Hope there are more to be added

    I don't know, the K800 looks rather appealing to me, 3.2 megapixel camera with true-flash would be a nice addition to the foundations built up with the K750/W800/10 series of phones.

    that's a better site with the phone info on, there is about 4 phones from that list i want
    the k800 will be a massive seller i think with the 3.2mp camera which is even better than the 903's camera.

    the W950 will be great as a all in one mp3 player and phone.

    the M600/P990 will be great as a mobile office type phone.


    think i'll get Th K800 though and maybe the P990 when it comes out if it doesn't cost too much(still not sure on the screen shape compared to the P900

    Well i will be getting one of these in the next couple of months on free upgrade. It's a tough one as they have split the best camera and music feature's over to models; the 3.2 Mp camera in the K800i and the 4Gb storage and touch screen MP3 player on the W950i (which i dont think has a camera). I will be a hard choice but one things for sure, i won't be buying a Nokia for a long time. The new Nokia's are revolting!

    Although i was hoping for a WiFi and HDD phone from SE, but that will be coming soon i hope.

    Also, the Opera web browser and 3G might be nice. Anyone tried Opera Mobile yet? Any good?

    Still have 9 months to go before my upgrade. Long time.

    I hope that by then I'll be able to get 2GB MP3 phones free with a contract.

    same here i had the W550i for a couple for months and it was a great phone then i got the V600i(3G SE) and that is a great phone but lacking the camera and expandable memory so the K800i will make a perfect phone IMO.

    i just love how good the new SE phones are

    Yeah they are really good, combine style with functionality.

    One slight doubt I have though is about the joystick. I currently have the k750, and my joystick was knackered after a few, apparent SE took note of this though and put in a dust protector or something, according to mobile-review.

    Everyone i know who has a K750i has this problem, including me. I have taken mine apart and cleaned it, but it did not really help. However i plan to use it to my advantage - i will be able to get it replaced under warranty just before my next upgrade. Then i can sell the phone on eBay as 'new with warranty' for more than a second hand one . Did this with my last two Nokia's, even though they were fine. I just told the phone company the phone intermitantly powered itself off and they replaced it. The brand new phones then went striaght on eBay. Naughty me!

    I'm thinking off doing something like that, apparently a can of compressed air is good for sorting the joystick out, or so the guy at the link tells'me.

    Compressed can help, but you will need to take the phone appart and remove the joystick. It's quite easy to do.

    I use Opera mobile, it's great, i've installed it on my K750i (W800i firmware) and it's far superior in comparision to the included browser.

    K800 will be my next phone.
