In North America, GSM operates on the primary mobile communication bands - 850 MHz and 1900 MHz. Initial implementations were exclusively 1900 MHz, with 850 MHz being added in 2001. In Canada, GSM-1900 is the primary frequency used in urban areas with 850 as a backup, and GSM-850 being the primary rural frequency. In the United States, regulatory requirements determine which area can use which frequency.
this will work in canada...any fone with a 1900 mhz will work in canada...
well this phone doesn't show a few good sides of it.The photo's are not reasonable did you see the back huge,not to say the whole phone i just lost my interest.
WOW! What a fantastic example of advancing technology. It has been said that "Nokia" has since been quiet within the phone industry as "Samsung" and "Sony Ecricson" market such high quality products, some who feel that "Nokia" could be compared as a better version of a "Motorola".
But i however think different. Nokia has since mooved on from Calls, SMS MMS EMS WAP/GPRS and have decided that features of a handset isnt the only reason why a consumer may purchase a product. It is refreshing to see such origional designs being produced as always by nokia, yes it could be said that the N90 is a "knock-off" version of the un-produced Samsung D700 calceled in 2003, or the Z700 but this is unique in its own way. The N90 is a mulit postional clam shell handset with an amazing 2MP Carl Zeiss optics Camera and x20 digital zoom with auto focus, anti-red eye and picture/video editing software and even has room for a flash...
...to go along with this its also 3G, but not much of a 3G fan, then how about the "push-to-talk" service. Opperating in the same way as a walkie talkie this service allows free of charge calls to be made (dependant on the service provider)
If this isnt enough then its MP3 player may interest you, with its 95MB (31MB built in 64MB in MMC allowing more) there is plenty of room for all that music however for storage of music, picture and videos you may wish to purchase a higher Multi Media Card to allow more storage.
Quick easy printing and a TFT of 256K colors this truly does show up its compititors.
So you could purchse a a Samsung D810 or Z510, a more expensive version of the "Motorola" V3, a "Sony Ericson" who's handset are of Style or Features but lack in the abilty to not develop a fault after 4months as seen with k700i, k750i, P910i, Or you could make the correct decision to use Nokia, Simple, effective, High finish, Durable ( I still have a 3310 from when it was brought out, its been in a lake and everything! ) Highly featured, technologically advanced N90.
Set to be launched in July 2005, its new date to arrive is March 2006 ensuring the handset exceeds the needs of the user.

yes the phone is large but how else they supposed to sqeeze so much into so small a space?my only quibble would be that they only use a portion of the huge screen the rest is filled time,date,calender,network logo etc actual picture size is tiny....
Screw Nokia! I've been using nokia since they started to manufacture phones! I think its a waste of money actually. The N90 might look so powerful but its really huge! and it can't even take good pictures!
Here's a sample from my Sony Ericsson K750i compared to the sample photos of the N90 on the views.
ok....so im thinking about buying the n90...although i don't actually know the release date yet!ive been looking everywhere and online it is £419.99...woah...so for that much money i want to be getting a fone which is worth it.
so please can anyone answer my questions?...
1. is the video camera really that good?
2. does it go weird/blackout/turn itself off and on randomly?
3. does it really not have vibrate?y?what sound settings DOES it have?just 'general' or 'silent'?
4. what is the mp3 sound quality like?
5.how many messages does it hold?
thank you!i want to make the right buy...if anyone knows the relase date of it in the UK then please let me know!
thanx melimax but how crap is dat no vibration!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I cant belive nokia made such a gr8 fone and forgot to put an FM radio in it!!!If u hve a fone with such specs and a hefty price tag(Rs.30k+)in Mumbai,India y not put FM???Its after all N-SERIES=MulTIMEdia phones!!!!!!
I bought a N90 last month very satisfied
It's not a cats & dog cell like RAZOR
It as style -technology & quality .
A must have, if you can afford it.
this i fantasic phone except for the annoying buzzing u get wen u turn the camera on. the vibrate does not work, the phone freezes up every 5 seconds. the swivel joints needs oiling every so often. half of my electicity bill is spent charging up this telephone box. however the flash replaces the need for light in my house... actually the whole street come to that matter. i heared the camera was ment to be 22 mp camera.... very disapointed wen it turned out to be 2!!!!! mp. part from that i love this badboy.
Some buy for style,others for usability,i.e satisfaction of needs.Based on need,I researched,then bought the Nokia N 90. To date,I am thoroughly satisfied.The N 90 is a performer, period.Positive technology by Nokia.To bad Moto didnt keep faith with the potentially great mpx 300 There loss is Nokia's gain.
- It scratches easily. Dropped it once [height: waist down.] and the camera jutted out.
- It restarts every now and then, for reasons I don't understand. Also, when you restart, it goes to default profile and camera settings.
- I have two sim cards and when I switch, it has this annoying thing wherein it stays in offline mode until I remove the battery before restarting.
- Not having vibration isn't all that bad-- since it's so big that you can't make it fit into your pocket, you're going to have to put it in your bag anyway. Problem is though, speakers are kind of weird [not to mention weirdly placed.], so sometimes it's loud, sometimes it's not, sometimes the sound quality is excellent, sometimes it sucks.
- I don't find the interface to be slow, though it takes a bit to view newly taken pictures-- but it's mostly because my memory card's full.
- I admit that I didn't really know what to look for in a phone before buying this, because my last one was a Nokia 3120 and I didn't really think that I had anything in specific in mind. I basically went for it because I loved the twisty thing, the supposedly phenomenal picture quality, the 3G and its Bluetooth. It's pretty rich in features though, and all I really want from it is infrared.
- About the camera... it's an okay camera. The pictures come out better than other camera phones's on a PC, but not so much better. Resize them, because they look better smaller. Also, the pictures come out blurry a lot, or the flash is too bright. Sometimes you just can't find the right setting.
- The twistyness. Really, it's great.
- The display on the outside. During meetings or whatnot, I usually read my messages through it. When I'm too lazy to hold the phone, I put the call on loudspeaker and close the phone. It's pretty helpful.
- You can take pictures even if its closed-- though the quality is like 95% horrifying.
- The keys aren't hard to manipulate.
- It responds fairly well.
- Mine came with a 128MB memory card.
- You can't not love it. No, really, you can't. I really want the N92 because of its better features, or the N70 because of its two cameras... but I'm sticking with my N90. I really wish it were smaller though, like a Samsung.
- features include voice recorder, converter, calculator, Korean [I think.] dictionary, Quicksheet, Quickword, Quickpoint, Info Print, Adobe PDF, Notes, a small number of games, imaging tools... it's all good.
