Thank you Paolo & Grim for the feedback.
The P1i has the form factor & the touch screen going for it, while the E90 mainly has the screen that can read web & docs better. Would expect to do a lot of doc & web reading on it & having something that is on all the time & easy to read is like having a book I can pick up anytime & carry on.
Currently own a HP IPaq 6828 & browsing or reading web or a doc is painful & am finding that a phone keypad is crucial for dialing/sms.
Hence, my dream convergent device is something with the 800x352 resolution, screensize & phone keypad of the E90 but with something as small or smaller thanthe P1i but with the touchscreen.
Surely Maher you should go for N95. It is the king of Nokia. If you see the price the difference is so much you should go dor n95.
Received today my E90 and I can only say...fantastic! The only problem I found so far is for the speaker...I'm used to get the latest smartphones/ppc (Nokia, HTC, i-mate,the latest SE P1i, etc) but this one really is TOP. Wheight is nothing as well size...you get used.
Answering Vincent's question, the answer is yes, whatever yoou can do with the internal screen you can do the same with the external, browsing, watch videos, pictures (only can snap photos with the external screen), etc...
Am torn between the E90 and SE P1i. Am leaning towards the P1i and key factor for E90 is the large screen. If the P1i can accomodate me reading a whole PDF page or a webpage comfortably then I wld go for the P1i. Comments welcomed.
SORRY, my last post below regarding the SMS Scheduler was not ment to be for the E90 thread.
Please do not purchase it for E90 as it is not compatible!
Also, check this site out for a 3rd party program that enables the option of SMS SCHEDULER.
Works great, but NOT free! I would like to know when Nokia website will have SMS Scheduler presented to us!
P.S. TAK i'm still waiting for your advice ;)
Check this site out if you want to install BlackBerry Connect on your E90. IT WORKS GREAT!
Hope it helps!
Hey, i also am not complaining from anything on my E90. everything is running very smooth, except the PTT freezes my phone!
I think i have the latest firmware, yet my PTT is acting up. I checked for updates through Nokia Software Updater and it tells me that V 07.24.0.3 is the latest. which is the same version i have when i dial *#0000#. Should i reinstall the same firmware or do you know of an even newer version out there?
Thank you TAK
P.S. There is no fax compatibility for the E90 to date, unless i am mistaken, please let me know :)
i love it, it's just so great i love it, i can use anywhere at anytime it's great
again N95 is a toy and E90 is a tool. don't drool over the camera features and GPS. your questions tell me you want to play with your phone. get N95!
i have the E90 and i have no problem with it. its excellent. no freezing when goin to PTT, 100% balanced on a flat surface, no speaker nor microphone problems, and inaddition the ineternal keyboard is not effecting the inner screen in anyway.
- if u have a problem with the ineer key keypad touching the screen, then go to ut nearest dealer and let them change the keypad frame to the upgraded version. when it is changed, u can c that when closing the phone the screen wont touch the keypad at all... problem solved.
- if ur phone is freezing then install on it the latest firmware.
- if its not balanced then let the technicians of ur nearest dealer change the soft pads.
- the first release of E90s have defective microphones. if u have warranty go to ur nearest dealer and let them change the board. cause the mic if a chip on the board. and the technicians r not allowed to touch the board cause of its sensitivity. if you dont have warranty well, u should have thought abt gettin a high end phone with warranty...
there all problems solved.
I'm considering to buy this phone or the n95, im attracted to both phones. now i like e90 more due to wifi capability n im a communicator fan. n i like n95 becuase of the 5mp camera n the gps. now it says dat e90 has a gps reciever, is it the same as regular GPS? and which one do recommand?
thankyou, ur reply is much appreciated
I think we pretty know by now who is being sincere in their complaints and comments, and who is just messing about and talking shit. i think posting videos is a good idea and a bit too much at the ame time.
Also, if you think the phone is big, heavy and ugly, go buy something else! Communicators have their loyal people and trust me, here in Dubai, there is a 12000 waiting list on this E90. They will buy it no matter what people say!
I got it for 3 weeks now, and it's beautiful. Just as great as the E61i which was my favourite Nokia to date!
it is really big, heavy and ugly!
I think a phone with a big display must be touchscreen but e90 is not.

Its Nokia competetors are giving negative feedback about this GREAT PHONE
I live in Dubai UAE, i has the E90 for about 3 weeks now. costs AED 3500 (US1000) original directly from nokia. I am not facing any of the problems anyone is mentioning. everything in my E90 works great and smoothly except for one issue no one has mentioned.
Only problem i face is that every time i click on my PTT option my phone freezes and must remove battery and restart. if anyone has any suggestion would be great.
It's a great phone and i am very HAPPY and satisfied!
E90:_ I am a regular user of Nokia communicator used 9110, 9210, 9500, 9300 and 9300i but never faced the dificuilty i am facing now. I use Excel now called quick office spread sheet in E90. Niether i can highlight all by presing Ctrl A, nor can i sort my cells, nor i can highlight few cells to change colour by pressing Shift and the cells and so on. I have tried to view from help centre and manual but the manual says functions do work but mine doesnt. Plz assist.
