Nokia E90 vs iPhone 6s Plus video shows how much have 'communicators' changed

35


Oh, Nokia Communicator series, you were the epitome of high-end business cell phones, and your famed E90 representative hit the shelves concurrently with the handset that sent you into an oblivion, the original iPhone, back in 2007. Fast forward eight years and change, and Apple's latest mobile juggernaut, the 5.5" iPhone 6s Plus, is so far removed from the E90, as nobody would have believed in the spring of 2007.

Don't believe us? Just look at this comparison video of the two handsets above. The plumpy E90, with its physical keyboard, 4" internal and 2" external displays, an OMAP2420 processor on 330 MHz, and 128 MB RAM, has nothing on the thin and light iPhone with a screeching A9 chipset, and a high-res 5.5" display. Nothing but the nostalgia factor, of course, plus the fact that it is tough as a nail (pun intended). 

Of course, the E90 was one of the most advanced handsets for its time, and had specs on par with the OG iPhone at launch. Check out the unorthodox comparison above, and tell us what you think about the smartphone evolution since that watershed 2007 moment.
