It’s yet another new-iPhone week, where “new” means … a different kind of green. So what better time to take a trip back to 2004: when choosing between touchscreen versus stylus, trackwheel versus keypad, even slab phone versus flip phone … required no choice at all. Re-introducing the Sony Ericsson P910: one of the original “smart” phones!

[ABOUT WHEN PHONES WERE FUN – SONY ERICSSON P910]
This is the eighteenth in a series of MrMobile videos exploring the mobile tech world’s most vibrant period in design and experimentation. In “When Phones Were Fun,” Michael Fisher re-reviews cellphones from the golden age of mobile, the decade-long span from the turn of the century to approximately 2009.
When Phones Were Fun: Episode 18 features a Sony Ericsson P910i review sample purchased by MrMobile’s publisher Future PLC. No manufacturer or carrier paid a fee or otherwise offered compensation in exchange for this coverage, nor did any such company preview or approve this content before publication.
