ppl keep complaining about why the e90 has S60 and not 80....rather than me explain it, i think my-symbian.com explains it fairly well:
"As mentioned above, the E90 is another huge leap in the 10-year history of Nokia Communicators. It is no longer Series 80 based but instead it utilizes the S60 3.1 (3rd Edition Feature Pack 1) platform running on top of Symbian OS 9.2. Why is that?
Symbian OS 9 and above introduce many fundamental changes including new kernel, new compiler, new optimized binary format, modified file system structure, new, much tighter security system and so on. This all means: no backward compatibility with pre-9 OS versions. So even if Nokia wanted too keep the Series 80 platform for the Communicator range, they would have to create a new edition of the platform based on Symbian OS 9.x which would involve a lot of work and funds but it would still mean no backward compatibility with old S80-based Communicator models and 3rd party software! The only way to retain compatibility would be to stay with old, pre-v9 Symbian OS version, which would make absolutely no sense as it would mean no access to the latest mobile technologies, or simply no space for any progress. So instead of heading for the blind alley, Nokia decided to switch to the S60 (formerly called Series 60) platform, installed in hundreds of millions of smartphones and supported by thousands of experienced developers."
so there you have it. it makes much more sens to use 60. ^_^
Could any 1 of the Smart guys provide us with a fair comparison between E90 VS N95!
hi everyone! i just bought my e90 and so far it's the best phone i ever had. It's got everything i need plus more. I can surf the net pretty well. Quite expensive though but well worth it. Size is not too bad too, its got a nice feel to it. By the way, can anyone tell me if its at all possible to download yahoo messenger in it? if it can then it's the Phone of all phones! Thanks guys!
this phone is very good,,, highly recommended.. i live in japan but this e90 surpasses japan latest phone models.. this time nokia hits a score against japanese brand..
i don't think nokians are turning away from E90 because of fax. real S80 users finds S60 a bit "childish" and is less intuitive.
what's the problem if people are buying expensive phones and you cannot? tools like E90 help people to be more efficient in their lives. technology is progressing and you haven't obviously! you're stuck in mud hole in your backyard. better use your 3310 to get help!
this phone is fantastic it, previously i having other brand phone but i was not satisfied with that but after i bought dis 1 my life bcome easy. i think whoever need hi-end gadget wit all the qualities including FM/camera/camcorder shoould go for dis?
This phone finally includes ALL facilities, e.g. FM Radio, T9 dictionary, great camera et al ! Wow!
must get one the e90
im using communicator 9300 and about to sell it 2nd hand...
hmmmmmmm beauty & perfect than any other hp's that i see
to salik,,its a shame you cannot experiance wat newer fones can do but thats not your point...If you are happy with a fone that just makes calls then you have choose your perfect fone and it suits your needs ,,,well done !!IVE just got n95 about 2 months ago but im hoping down the line the e90 will come down sim free to a lower price because its my next fone..
Also Salik i use my fone so much for so many things and its suits my needs nearly perfectly,its my camera and camcorder which are both qualty enuf for me,,its my mp3 player,,watch,,daily reminder,,calculater,,converter,,email and on and on each and every day with use plus the mobile phone is the worlds most desired gadget,,and im one of them ,in fact a bit obssessive
Great phone,whats more? it has a very classy look makes anybody carrying it looks classy and rich lol.
I'm really shocked to hear about the speaker problem here,i feel sorry for those who faced such thing BUT i never had this problem and its been about 1 month already with the E90.
As an advice,the E90 is not a music phone or the type of phones that suits teenagers.those who can not take a good care of it DONT buy cause it will look bad if it gets dameged,like if it fills on the ground more than once.
Finally,i really like what i have and i hope to see more classy cool parctical phones from NOKIA.
hi. the mic on my e90 broke within 5 days of using the phone. nokia care say, its because of the huge vibrator motor placed right next to the mic. anyone else have this problem?
joey, does not have tv out, and it does not charge through usb.. Not carl zeiss.. the battery life is excellent, so is the camera.. i'm still bugged about the tv out thing.. oh well, can't have it all...
This phone is really good. My only dislike are the very easy to get scratch on the display edge (chrome colored edge) and included leather case on the package causes mark on the phone body.
to owners of E90 in case you dont know.. IPOD video file (MP4 format) also runs perfectly with E90.. screen quality very
good.. sound superb..
hey joey addendum.. no TV port.. but sound is better than my previous N95.. loud and more hi-fi...
hi joey, here is my reply iam using e90 for a week now.
1. camera autofocus okay
2. QWERTY keyboard okay easy to use..
3. camera I think not carl zeis, for 3.2 M SE 2M camera phone is better. but e90 camera not that bad at all
4. no hanging problem
5. USB charging not possible, I tried myself the other night either connected for PC suite or data transfer there was no indication of charging on going
Generally,I find this phone very good.. I really like it. I got it for 43,500.. I have mocca more business look color.. the red one is also good but more for fashion color I should say..
