Nokia E90 Brief Ownership Report

I've owned this phone for about two years and in that time it has been in a class of it's own.Contrary to rumours, this phone can handle a 16GB microSDHC card perfectly well.The screens (both of them) are excellent for normal usage and the widescreen is the best in class for web-browsing, though videos will always have borders on both sides of the screen because of it's extra wide form factor.The speakers (yes, they are stereo and there are two of them) are loud and crisp at all times but low bass tones will bring them down.The hinges may seem fragile but they are made of metal and even after two years with me and extremely rough usage, they still produce the same solid "thwack" as they did when the phone was new, although they have developed some play and the screen thus wobbles a bit.Regarding build quality, I have no complaints, it looks elegant and there is a lot of metal (the hinges and the battery cover) to give it heft and make it durable.The multitasking is good enough to handle music/radio (yes it has an FM tuner) along with web browsing and a document open in QuickOffice, which is an excellent office suite provided with the phone. If, however, something more memory intensive is opened, applications in the background will close without warning, which can be annoying. The average amount of RAM is to blame for this.The disadvantages are mostly niggles, such as the camera button which sometimes does not autofocus when you press it one step down (the PhoneArena review says...

Review

I will agree with last review this is the best phone and i agree with rating 9.3 or even more(writing&editing Word,Excel,PPoint 2003, AdobeReader, Flash on Internet pages, Youtube, Windows live Mesenger& E-mail, Divx movies playback on huge 800x354 screen and headphones, Nokia&googleMaps, preinstalled support for bluetooth keyboard&printer, with additions for bluetooth mouse, QUAKE 3 game full&realistic like on pentium3, real time weather for huge list of cities, accespoint over wireless to any computer/laptop/other mobile, voip calling etc. are only some funcitons that i've using), and on the side of memory problem, i'm using it with Sandisc's microSDHC 8Gb card which is, by my testing, the largest storage for this phone. If it isn't enough, then the N96 is only choice, but then you can forget half of funcions mentioned before...

Nokia E90 romanian rewiew

I have this phone on my poket for more then 1 year. Belive me when I say that this is the best phone ever made. I have seen here that some are complainig about stirage capacity , comparing even whith N95 (jesuuus !). I guess that this phone is not for you guys ... just go back to your media phones. This is a BUSINESS PHONE , I have instaled on mine blackberry conectivity , GPS (full europe) and others and never , never has bloked or not responding or ... And btw , the 2GB that I have atached on microsd it seems to be enough. Nokia E71 may be a good alternative but I will keep my communicator untill Nokia will produce the next one.
Again , I haved more then 60 phones on the last 10 years and never keeped one that long (except a 6310i some years ago ... about 6-7 months).

Where's the storage?

I'm a bit disappointed with it's internal storage. For a phone that size with all these features for the purpose of business, the memory offer here is too little for extreme work loads. Does anyone know how much of external memory it supports up to? I'm guessing 2 GB, which these days seems small.

Needs North American 3G

This, like the Nokia N95, looks like an excellent phone; but the lack of 850 and 1900 MHz WCDMA (UMTS/HSDPA) frequencies is a show-stopper for me, and likely a large segment of potential buyers in North America.

Hopefully the successor to the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet will have phone support, including tri-band UMTS...

E90

The New E90 is the best mobile which the nokia haveever made. is design & outer camera of 3.2 MP & an inside camera for video conferencing makes it a unique one. I assure that the phone is worth for the money.
