Nokia 8290 Review

Nokia 8290 7

Posted: , by



The phone is currently available from VoiceStream Wireless and costs $149

» Conclusion

Nokia 8290 is an excellent choice – it looks nice, features very good sound quality, long battery life and extensive set of features. The phone had almost every technological feature you could want, for normal or business use. The question is, will the tiny sized phone be an asset or a liability? For me, it was a good phone I enjoyed to use. For someone with larger hands, or who misplaces things easily, this might not be the right choice.
