Saw the phone in a shop last week. Did some preliminary tests and it is a fast phone. Superb construction: it is built like a brick house similar to the N93. The screen appears to be two N80 screens joined together. This is further shown by the 800*352 pixels spec. Nokia really should have gone for the more compelling wide VGA spec ie 800*480 as seen in Toshiba's G900. The Toshiba has better screen resolution even on a smaller screen. Well you can't win 'em all. Now I have to save money to buy the E90- certainly an expensive device but it is the best among the present competition.
only one problem. Sometime it's battery drain off uncontrolled. When this happened, the whole phone is hot and you will have to restart to bring it back to stable condition again. Some say obviously there are some programe still runing in the background but I double check by press and hold the menu button. Software still not stable. Symbian have to work hard to compete head to head with WM6.
Traveller, does the e90 have a tv out feature so I can show pictures or videos on a tv or projector?
you guys do realize that the E90 only supports HSDPA @ 2100mhz, right? this means that US users will not be able to take advantage of the 3.8mbs HSDPA data transfer rate, you'll be stuck on EDGE at best.
just letting everyone know. i WAS excited about this phone, as it has awesome features all around, but for me it's not worth the $813 price tag (at buy.com) if i can't connect any faster than what my N76 already does (using at&t network).
this may not be a problem for you other people, but the primary purpose for my use of nokias is the web browser. and EDGE simply isn't fast enough.
Does the phone have a T9 dictionary when you create messages using the outer display and keypad? in the past communicators there were no T9 available. the reason might be that Nokia expected users to write the message using the internal keypad being easier. However, sometimes you are obliged to use the outer keypad in meetings where no body can notice you as you will not open the phone.
Thanks again for the caller groups confirmation.
there is a speaker prob, when calling just before the other phone rings, you hear this weird noise..nokia fix this..

In the UAE this phone is currently going for AED 3500 (CAN $1 = AED 3.5)
Also, they forgot to mention that this phone is Blackberry compatible :)
there is a problem that i found with the E90 is the cracking sound during the call, and suddenly the other end caller won't be able to hear to what i'm talking, i called Nokia service center and they replaced with a new one for me.
Hi E90 Owners,
I loved the review of the phone. However, I would like to ask an owner of E90 about a very important feature that I missed in the 9300i, that is, the Caller groups feature.
In most of Nokia phones, you can create a caller group from the Names menu. Where you can allocate a tone, name, and image to that group. You can also send an SMS to the whole group instead of choosing contacts 1 by 1. However, All Nokia communicators were missing this feature, they were providing the feature of assigning a ring tone to a contact only. So, is the caller group feature available in the E90?
MP3s, Camera, MSN, DVD(what!) audio jacks are the strenghts. we prefer to talk about S60 and S80.
about 3 days of battery juice with lots of talking & SMS. phone is mostof the time sing hands-free
