It's also buggy as hell (as all Japanese phones are), but I suppose if 3 inches of Japanese TV gives you a woody, get a plane ticket, man.
Don't know where you get that information from. I haven't had a single problem with mine. Early firmware was buggy, but that was two years ago for the P905i. Mine is rock solid, takes great pictures, and has a great music player.
Really, the only thing that got me was that the thing couldn't play mp3's. Only plays wma. Everything else was a slam dunk. It even interfaces tolerably well with my Linux machines.
