The enhanced model of this phone will be out in Feb-March 2006. You can use this phone for a good 6 months. Relax.
the phone souds like it is a good phone. but the thing is when yuo buy it the newer model will come out!!!!
does anyone know when te phone wil come out in The netherlands, because i really want the N90
N70 and N91's screen resolution is different from N90. N70 and N91 is of the same resolution of the Nokia 6680.
Hope this info is of use to you.
The N90 would definately be the best mobile when it comes out,but i am dissapointed that Nokia has to always leave out something which they could have always included, like FM Radio,vibration etc...But i feel for people like me who have a 6680,6630 etc, this is not the right upgrade because it is too expensive right now & is the first with the new display resolution & features...
My next mobile would be somewhat like the N70 with the display resolution of the N90,with autofocus & i hope Nokia comes out with a good Symbian candybar like that..
Thanks Kelv, Yes it helped a lot to understand why N90 is better. We are all excited to see it in our hands, inspite of all the negative things told about this phone.
I definitely agree with you that N90 has the best external display of 128x128 pixel. Should be crisp and clear. More than that, I'm even more excited about the way the camera can be used. It is going to be easier just to rotate the camera module to an angle and change the focus on the target instead of moving the whole device.
Now, SE and Samsung have to think something better than this to excite people :P
I hope when N90 comes out in the market, it will be the best camera phone in its class!
n90 is kewl .... with da carl ziss lense .... but im not desperate for one ... cos im havin a 6630 right now ... will get a new one when nokia releases a phone with at least a 4 mega pixel camera in it ...
Deciding on a phone actually depends greatly on one's decision on its functions, usability, price range and exclusivity.
As you have mentioned the 1150 from Motorola, yes, I definitely agree that upon comparison with the Nokia N90, these two models fall on 2 different categories because of the difference in system OS and certain smaller issues in technical specifications.
A speculation in my analysis would see a price difference of approximately 300-400 SGD difference.
Firstly, I'll tap on exclusivity. The motorola 1150 would fall on a typical 3G phone category with dual camera support, multimedia etc. which could be basically be on par with the Nokia 6680.
On the other hand, N90 falls on a whole new range of branding which in this case is branded as the N series. It is similar in the case of the Vertu/Nokia 8000 Series where design and sophistication is the wow factor. In the case of N series and in this topic, the N90, it goes onto the exclusivity of technology. Branding plays a huge part by incorporating carl zeiss optics together with VHS video recording. I have trial viewed the video capabilities of the N90 on my lcd tv at home and yes, it sees a huge and remarkable difference in the quality as compared to the commonly implemented 3GPP standards.
Usability wise and techinically speaking, the N90 wins with it's whole new revamped UI and leading range of functions like EGPRS, an enhanced memory capacity,and it's signature external screen which can be said to be the largest in the market and to be able to view messages and other essential areas of the phone.
The availability of additional memory for the Mtr1150 is also limited as compared to the 1.8V Rs-mmc the N90 supports. Price also differs in this area.
And most importantly, the usability of N90's interface. Most of us are familiar with Nokia's famous UI and basically motorola's poor implementation of it's sms input.
Of course, the key factor, one's price budget. While the N90 is exclusive, it also commands a high price but at the same time, packed with a high array of multimedia enabled features.
A price difference of 400 SGD for a better UI experience, better image and video quality, higher speed capabilities, and screen functions would tempt not one but many.
Motorola and Nokia's products price depreciation varies as well. I will not elaborate further on this due to the rights of these companies which could deem my words as inappropriate slandering.
What I have mentioned above are some of the key concerns in my opinion that puts the N90 above other 3G capable phones, not just the Mtr1150 in the plus point area.
Hope my minature article is of help to you!
Do you think that N90 is worth buying for 1300 SGD? How about waiting for Motorola 1150? I guess it is going to be of the same price. I know that we cannot compare both the phones directly as the OS is different in both. But in general aspects like dimensions and weight and design, the latter one seems to be better. 1150 has also got 2 MP camera, but no autofocus. Let us know your thoughts.
It would most likely be in India end july or sometime August. I am corrosponding with Singapore Nokia Staff so I do not dare quote unrealistic dates.
I have the latest and final update on the price of the Nokia N90 which is due to be released in different countries within THIS week.
Price will be $1388 SGD exc GST.
This price is Nokia Shop's list price and so street shops will offer a lower price of approx 60-100 lesser.
Any enquires do post them and I will answer them accordingly as I am corresponding with Nokia contact staff regularly.
Nokia N90 would most likely have vibrate mode as compared to the test set 3 months ago.
Asia will get the phone first anytime this week. Malaysia has gotten it already.
N90 is coming for T-MOBILE USA!
( In 900/1800/1900 modes) Not UMTS for USA
( but we don't need UMTS in USA, since we don't have a 3g here yet).
Go to http://www.nokiausa.com, click on: expected soon phones , then click on Nokia n90, and sign up for a waiting list, to receive email as soon as the carrier of that phone will become known ( T-MOBILE guaranteed!-because the phone doesn't have 850 frequency, which is required for all GSM carriers in USA but not for T-Mobile)
Also the american version I'm pretty sure will be much cheaper than UMTS version provided by Communication Telecom for $845!
GO T-MOBILE USA!
