Exclusive: Large update on Paris

‘Paris’ is the codename of the speculated high-end phone P5.
Sliding keyboard and different home screens you can navigate between by pressing left and right. Also, we’ve got a sliding mechanism on the back of the phone as a lens protector for the camera. “5 MP” is also stated on the back near the camera. It comes with a stylus even though the user interface can easily be used with your finger as well. It’s black and a bit smaller than P1. It has a built-in GPS (NaviLink 5.0 NL5350) with WayFinder 7.0 built-in as well as a weather application and the new Opera Mobile 9 with intelligent zoom and widgets. Based on OMAP34xx hardware platform.

Paris is going to be announced along with Beibei, if everything goes as planned, which it should.

  1. So no Snapdragon processor on paris(P5), no more chance to see ATi GPU :( but at least it utilizes the powerful TI-OMAP 34xx series which means the P5 would support HD videos and XGA display! :D

    But i’m so excited at BeiBei, i do hope it’s got an autofocus so that i could divert my full attention to that instead of the P5 :P

  2. I am pretty sure it’s running OMAP 34xx – I have still to check it out completely, but will let you know when I get around it ;-)

    And Beibei should have auto focus.

  3. I think omap 34xx has native h264 hardware accelarator inside,
    so videos shd be smooth…

  4. The most interesting is the final RAM amount and graphic accelerators.
    How do you get that nice info by the way, Michell?
    It seems my P990 will have a really good successor.
    Oh, and I still have a hope for a full qwerty!

  5. I’d have to kill you, if I told you :lol:

    It will feature a QWERTY keyboard.

  6. well, i know what i´m getting ;-)

    i´ll start saving money :-D

  7. I love you, dude. :-P

    I’m so excited.

    I’m going to trade in my N95 for the Paris and save quite a bit of cash on that purchase…then ask for BeiBei for my birthday. :-P

  8. Yes this should be my next phone too. I held out on upgrading my W800 last year when I started hearing about the ‘P5′. Hopefully it will be worth the wait.

    Any idea if this will have auto focus and xenon flash?

  9. Thank you Michell for the answer…..!

  10. Will this device have support for CDC Java, as the P800, P9xx, P1i have done?

  11. @Michell Bak
    over at Esato there is some confusion over the names of the P5…is it Bella or is it Paris…if it is Paris then what is Bella….if it is Bella what is then Paris!?!?…confusing isn’t it:)

  12. Bella was the codename of the first prototype based on the old hardware. The new phone, codenamed Paris, is making use of new hardware and therefore pretty much everything has been changed, hence a new codename.

  13. @Michell Bak

    thanks….just 14 days and counting:)…for the pics ob B&P to appear:)

  14. @Michell Bak
    Was Bella the P5 which PK over at Esato had?

  15. @n3o
    I’m not Michell but from what I understand the old proto that PK had WAS Bella. After they made the changes they also changed the codename which is now Paris. So, currently PK has Paris. Bella was the old proto.

  16. I though so

  17. Wow BeiBei wih autofocus, this is the what i’m yearning for so long! :D finally SE did heard my gripes :P

    Thanks Michell ;)

  19. Walkman phone with autofocus!!!

    Finally a walkman phone that i can consider to buy!!!

    @miz,other than the beibei(w980?) and paris(p5?) will we see something else??like a cybershot or perhaps a gaming/bravia handset??

  20. does anyone know if ‘paris’ will be equipped with a xenon flash??? i know it’s a walkman phone but please pleaaase have a xenon flash!

    btw… it’s about time sony ericsson came out with a full qwerty sliding design. doode if this has north american 3g it’ll be a dream come true! =D here’s to hoping.

  21. mikeed,
    it is a full QWERTY, read the michellBak’s comments

  22. WOw this is exciting stuff indeed! Auto focus? Thats crazy stuff, can’t wait for both beibei and paris to be released!

  23. @mikeed

    It’s not a Walkman phone.

  24. Michell, do you know if Paris will be show on CEBIT2008 in Hannover?

  25. mizzle,

    why do you say p5 keyboard is similar to htc touch dual, it does not have dedicated qwerty keyboard. it has some different keyboard….

  26. Michell,

    You mentioned that ‘it will be announced together with Beibei…’.

    Can you tell something about announcement date (goes as planned doesn’t say much)?

    Thanx! :))

    Rgds,
    I
