I have spent 3 weeks with my E90 now, and a few comments follows:
- Display is great - in all means.
- Battery capacity is OK - 2days for me.
- 2gb is enough if you syncronize a few times a week - why keep tons of pictures and video on the phone itself...
- Pretty quick software compared to earlier S60 variants.
- Size is the whole comprimise.
E90 is a great product no doubt about it however it is up against fierce competition.Windows Mobile has vastly improved over the last few years and really for this type of product Windows Mobile 6 is the operating system of choice.I don’t wish to promote any pda over another but as their seems to be inaccurate remarks regarding using the phone function on pocket pc’s I have to say that in recent years this area has improved beyond all recognition. Personally I would buy the E90 if it had a decent os(Linux or wm6)
According to major forums, E90 will be massively available after July 9th. So another couple weeks to wait...
To those asking about vibrating function on E90:
Yes unlike former communicators it supports vibrating and does it pretty well actually.
I need to know from you guys ifthis Phone Nokia E90 supports VIBRATING facility they all other Nokia Phones do?
Please mail me the answer as need this Phone if it has the same too.
I don't care what it lookslike I want to know if it will be fast.I know the 9500 was really good but was also very very slow so whats the speed of e90 like?If its fast i want it if its slow then its not for me
I forgot to add-the e90 will use plenty power so don't reckon on the battery lasting an age.As you said other devices have better cpu's but what you don't seem to realize is that you can easily underclock or overclock so that aspect of your reasoning is flawed.
How stange!I've have used a ppc(m5000)for over 2years and amazing as it may seem it has the best qwerty keyboard available.The kaiser qwerty is perfectly usable for more than sms,it's downright ignorant to suggest otherwise.Can I ask you what shape is your lcd monitor is?again e90 screen is not suitable for prolonged periods of web browsing(m5000 can't be matched in this area)No need for touchscreen you say-oh so you don't want to copy/cut/paste at speed!nor do you want to surf with a couple of taps,use excel with ease etc etc.E90 does have great specs but also has several drawbacks least not being the bluetooth stack,but i'm fairly sure that won't mater a jot to the converted!
Don't forget Nokia E90 is a symbian based smart phone it will support flash lite 2.0 as well as flash lite 3.0 so you can watch youtube on your phone as well
4 GB i now it goes into N95, so probablyinto E90 also, since they have simmilar hardware.
Will it suport bigger memory cards than 2G? IMO 2G is way too small for a feature packed phone like this. Samsung allreadt makes micro SD cards with capasity of 8GB.
Ok thanks for finally giving some actual phone to compare to. So first x7500 you can count out because it is TWICE AS BIG!!, Not a phone lol, also expensier Well HTC raiser is the one we should compare to E90 and i must admit they are very similar. Now i have a t least two products to chose between, but after a lot of thinking these are the difference that make me chose E90 over HTC Raiser.
+E90 has much bigger qwerty, the one on HTC is not suitable for typing more than SMS or small emails, while on E90 you can type a whole seminar if you like.
+E90 has wider screen and is more suitable for browsing
+E90 has flash for taking photos in darker areas
+E90 will last a lot longer due to a little larger batter and of course twice less power hungry processor
-E90 is a little bigger and heavier, but at least it looks slim because it is longer
-E90 has no touchscreen
-Well some consider WM an advantage but there are all the programs i need made for symbian too
So tho only thing that makes HTC better is Touchscreen for me, but i can survive without it and use the other features that are better. Must admit HTC really got me going but than E90 is mini laptop in the size of a mobile phone, that's what you can't find on market jet.
As toFlash Lite 3.0. IT IS NOT MADE JET! When it is made you simply install it on E90 lol. So if iPhone really will have it preinstalled (which i doubt)than you will install in on E90.
