Nokia E review: Nokia E

 

The Nokia E series has gained a reputation as a mean set of power smartphones for business users. Just take a look at the Nokia E61i and the Nokia E65 if you need proof. And now, you've got the granddaddy of them all--the mammoth Nokia E90...

The Nokia E90 Communicator is equipped with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS, and has a solid set of productivity and communication features for the business user. The Symbian smartphone also has a full QWERTY keyboard and 3.2-megapixel camera.

The Nokia E90 doesn't support U.S. 3G networks, and speakerphone volume is a bit weak. The handset is also heavy and bulky.

The Nokia E90 Communicator has a feature set as large as its size, satisfying the needs of the power business users. That said, we're disappointed by the lack of 3G.

Nokia E90 Communicator PDA Phone

 

The Nokia E90 offers almost everything you could ever want in a PDA phone, except usability and a low price.

Built-in Wi-Fi and GPS ; Excellent e-mail options

Ugly, boxy design ; Keyboard is hard to use

With its full complement of business software and multimedia tools, the E90 is almost like a portable office. But even its significant capabilities can't overcome its unfriendly design and its steep price

Nokia Nokia E90 Communicator

 

When you're shopping for a cell phone, what will $800 get you? For that amount, you can have a Nokia E90 Communicator, a boxy PDA phone with more features--including Wi-Fi support, built-in GPS, and a 3.2-megapixel camera--than you'll find in most...

Built-in Wi-Fi and GPS ; Excellent e-mail options

Ugly, boxy design ; Keyboard is hard to use

Built-in Wi-Fi can't compensate for a boxy design and a hard-to-use phone.

Review: Nokia E90 Communicator

 

Many moons ago, a laptop, a cell phone, and a cinder block got together for a hot three-way love fest. The product of this freaky,...

Great for creating and editing text docs. Can be easily set up as a wireless modem. Integrated GPS means you’ll probably never ask for directions again. Functions perfectly as a cell – the voice quality is on par with the iPhone. Reads PDFs. Robust...

Finding applications in the endlessly layered menu system is consistently confusing. Flat keypad makes typing often feel ambiguous. Screen is hard to see in direct sunlight. Pricey, ungainly, and, worst of all, fugly

Nokia E90 Communicator

 

The Nokia E90 communicator is a big, expensive, impressive phone. This phone is built around functionality, with a myriad of bells and whistles. It contains a huge number of business oriented features, and delivers on performance.

Very fast connection, Business oriented, A huge range of features in one phone, Lots of memory and RAM

Big, heavy and solid, Rigid QWERTY keyboard buttons means typing is slow, GPS didn't work for us, Expensive

Nokia E90 review: Heavyweight champion

 

The Nokia E90 Communicator is the latest addition to the set of contemporary high-performance devices for executives. We had to wait three years since the last Nokia 9500 Communicator appeared. Our patience was duly rewarded at the...

Full-fledged keyboard ; Big and high-resolution display ; Integrated GPS ; Built-in maps and basic navigation without charge ; 128 MB memory ; 512 MB microSD in the standard package ; Integrated WLAN, HSDPA ; Quality e-mail client ; Office...

Size and weight ; Third party applications incompatible with the built-in GPS ; Charges for navigation capabilities ; Multitasking still not perfect ; Inadequate battery life ; No small-size charger like in the N95 ; No camera lens cover ; Wired...

Before the E90 appeared, communicators used to be a class on its own in the Nokia portfolio. They had their own UI, which brought forth a number of issues. Above all, every application had to be adapted to the uncommon S80 UI. Quite unaffordable and...

Nokia e90

 

Since the E90 is a Symbian Series 60 3rd edition phone, it will work with thousands of third-party applications. My testing software, JBenchmark ACE, detected an ARM9 processor running at 244 MHz; in use, the E90 felt a bit sluggish compared with a...

Stellar voice quality. Heavenly keyboards, screens, and controls. Wi-Fi and GPS radios. Robust built-in applications. Unlocked

Extremely expensive. Enormous. No touch-screen capability. No 3G support in the U.S

The E90 is a hulking, top-notch, all-business smart device for those with deep (and large) enough pockets.

Nokia E90 Communicator Review

 

It took Nokia almost 3 years to refresh its Communicator series, which made as some of the best smartphones targeting businessman class, back in 2004-2005. Those that are more used with Nokia's Eseries handsets won't be disappointed either, as the new...

The device has so many strong points that the list could be very long. But some of it worths to be mentioned: incredible big display, very good camera, fast and stable software, powerful processor, good multimedia features and good battery. Even the...

There are few things that can be listed as 'negative' regarding E90's functionality. Perhaps that depends on everyones tastes also, especially if we take in consideration that this is far from being a small and light device. Aside from that, I should...
