Nokia N90 Phone

 

The Nokia N90's unusual design and powerful features--including a 2-megapixel camera--set it apart from most standard cell phones.

High-resolution camera Media player works well

Very expensive for a phone Handset is slightly bulky

Priced at $600 with a two-year T-Mobile service agreement (as of April 7, 2006), the N90 is a hefty investment. But factor in the great camera, the funky design, and the adequate media player, and you've got yourself a solid multimedia phone

High-resolution camera ; Media player works well

Very expensive for a phone ; Handset is slightly bulky

It's expensive for a phone, but the N90 could substitute for your digital camera and camcorder in a pinch.

Nokia N90

 

The Nokia N90 packs a load of features into one unwieldy package.

Takes beautiful photos. Lovely screen. Powerful.

Very large. Mediocre battery life. Poor camera resolution.

Nokia N90

 

As the first two-megapixel cell with Carl Zeiss optics, the Nokia N90 is one serious and seriously expensive sharpshooter.

Swivel camera lens and screen 2-MP digital still camera • Carl Zeiss optics • MP3/AAC audio playback

Very expensive Bulky and heavy design • Proprietary headphone jack

Nokia N90 review

Nokia N90

 

The Nokia N90 is like a cell phone on steroids and it looks it too. No need for random testing here. At least the cell phone has as much brains on the inside as it has brawn on the outside. The Nokia N90 has a smart phone operating system (OS), can...

Nokia N90 Review

 

Excellent speakerphone, Amazing high-resolution high-color display, Outstanding camera picture quality

Software is suprisingly slow to react, Menus are not numbered, which further slows you down, A bit difficult to open with a single hand

The Nokia N90 is one of these rare phones that contribute in setting the standard for what a "camera" phone should really be
