Symbian os is far better suited to the n-series.I'm afraid it dosen't compete with larger more complete operating systems that can be found on larger devices.
hi,Bart,thank you for your post, there is some softwares of E90,
I've got mine from iGadget Store at 550 euro. It's awesome the phone, I like it so much, besides my 9500. Great, I love it. Also here is the link if someone is interested http://www.nokia-e90-communicator.com/en/index.html
I wonder why the 'almighty' Nokia still needs an OS that was developed by Motorola. And why the hell it needs to buy all the chips from Motorola???
let`s hope that invery short time nokia will announce something thats gone be really #1,and it will have everything we can imagine and still run on Symbian s60.if you ask me after couple of years symbian will take over java,palm,W Mobile and the new samsung Os that is still in blueprints.
I love Nokia, that's no question about it. For a phone (I really should call it a device) cost this much I would wait til all the software issues gone and once its "seafood" price comes down to right.
I got my nokia E90 in UAE DUBAI from Axiom its a very good phone for 3,650 DHS.
NOIKA E90 is the best in 2007,its on news(Phones MEG!)
I wonder why some people keep saying lies about it and other s h i t y stuff that is not true about the E90!!?
Well,after looking to this issue i found out that those who say such thing cant buy the E90,the other some dont even have it,for the rest! too bad for them cause they want to get it but they cant bcasue they have spent the money they had on N95 and now they are JUST looking for the bad sides of this phone to mention to make it look bad.
It takes a real educated person to use & buy such phone NOT a farmer,those who are looking for camera DONT YOU EVER DARE say bad things about the E90 cause it has a wonderful camera with a great deal of video shooting also.
This is to the guys at Nokia development.
I had a 9500 comunicater, and i loved it as it was one of the most powerfull and easy to use phones around, at the time.
As a loyal customer, i bought the E90 despite not agreeing on its cost. The tragedy is that i have returned it after only 3-days...!!! Why, here is why:
1) the operating system sucks compared with the old one (searies 60 vs. seares 80), it does not have a dropdown menue, proper file managment, or even the amazing shortcuts the earlier one had.
2) the contact search function is horable, no seach by number like the old one.
3) the keybord sucks compared with the 9500 and there is no arrow keys.
If they did not want to invest in a new seares 80 operating system, Nokia should have considered switching to a windows-bases operating system for this phone.
i bought the phone e90...its just good but major problem is hanging of the phone so think and buy..
In stores in India right now... Rs 38,000/ - however the iphone launch internationally has overshadowed it launch... was Nokia nuts to launch it at the same time as apple???
I know the iphone will not be available in India for some time however 8 GB et all in the phone sets a different benchmark which e-90 dose not seem close to matching...
Nokia you need to launch a far greater product just to catch up.... forget to set the benchmark.
Also may I suggest Nokia,Apple,Motorola, Samsung,Palm,HP,O2,IMate,RIM etc get together and have a standard OS format and productivity tools (like MS office) ... In fact they can extend it along with Sun and Open Office as a free desktop platfrom.... that will be a killer... guys get together and do something good for the world.
Also like computers please get your interphases and ports matching eg chargers , memory cards etc as that will make them inter usable and also more environmentally friendly ... guys rise up to this challenge
As User of E90. I Rank This Phone No. 1, And With 99.99% Satisfaction, As This Phone Is Having Every Features What We Need In Business As Well As In Entertainment, From Age of 6 to 60's Any one can use this phone and in a easy way, compair to all communicators this phone is having more features, speed, better connectivity, quality of sound, camera, display, battery life, look,
This phone is worth at any price as this phone is packed with lots of things,
For the first time nokia has given the new shade in communicator series as they have launched it with symbian series 60 OS,
Major minus point is if you are using 9300/i or 9500, it is big problem to upgrade as they are series 80 symbian, so data transfer (i.e., contact, sms, notes, e-mail, calander) is problamatic,
If you want to upgrade you have to forget your data exept contacts, that you can transfer it thru PC Suite,
Work files are easy to access as well as fast to save and edit.
I SUGGEST YOU ALL GIZMO FREAKS TO BUY THIS PHONE AS THIS IS GOOD OPTION TO REPLACE. AND THIS PHONE IS USEFULL FOR ALL. AS THIS PHONE DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A BUSINESS PHONE BUT PACKED WITH ALL THE FEATURES.
i gotta e90..excellent battery backup and great features..can i instal microsoft visual studio or something equal to that..if so kindly help me..
E90 is most for bussines works is not for listening music or take pictures... E90 has manufacture for the BUSINESSMAN not for the CHILDREN
