Conclusion: The first reaction when seeing the E90 is that it is HUGE. That’s true, but we can live with this fact, having in mind the features it offers. It reminds of the Ugly duckling – a big and plain phone on the outside, but with huge comfortable keyboard and easy to read display with resolution of 800 pixels on the inside.
Pros: 800 pixels wide display that is perfectly readable in bright light, Keyboard with lots of shortcuts, Fully function smartphone when closed, Strong battery
Cons: Bulky size and lack of carrying case in the box, Not 100% of the Symbian applications are compatible with the Wide-screen interface
Conclusion: A fantastic update to the Communicator line that's more like a re-birth. While keeping the best of the Communicator line's inventive and practical ergonomics, the feature set has been raised to the sky. HSDPA will thrill Europeans and quad band EDGE means the phone will work fine in the US as well as anywhere else in the world GSM service is available. WiFi will keep you connected when near an access point and Nokia's Bluetooth implementation is as usual, excellent.
Pros: Fantastic wide screen display with 800 x 352 resolution that's very viewable outdoors. Very good camera, WiFi, Bluetooth and a GPS. Excellent Communicator design melds a mobile phone with a notebook. The E90 is extremely stable and reliable.
Cons: In the US, the GPS and Nokia Maps is a mixed bag. Nokia has improved on the N95's GPS with firmware updates, and we hope they do the same with the E90. Large by phone standards. No US 3G. The mobile office and strong PDA features feel a bit hobbled without a touch screen.
