I am a P900 user for 1.5 years! I switched to S700i.
The problems i had encountered with it are: 1. the VGA camera is not competitive, nokia makes better pictures especially the night mode of sony ericsson doesn't really work; 2. the camera only has 3 zoom ins; 3. It is heavier and bulkier than the S700i; 4. you need 2 hands to manipulate the functions; 5. the screen is 64k as compared to 256k of S700i, 6. the mp3 does not have a synthesizer.

The downside of S700i which i only found out now are:
1. it does not support WAV tones (if it does please tell me how), 2. the mp3 can only be used in the ringtones and not text messages alert (in the P900, any way is possible), 3. the unit does not come with its USB cable you will have to buy it!!!, 4. the unit does not come with a case, you will have to buy it also (in the p900 you have USB and casing in the box already), 5. you cannot skip to the chorus of the mp3 song, you can only pause it. The p900 allows you to go to any part of the mp3 song by just a tap on the screen by your pointer

Based on this list of features downside, you be the judge, it depends on your priorities and use. I cannot say i was so ecstatic when i got the p900 and i can say the same for the my new s700i
