Summary: I bought this smart phone and sold it within 8 months, I bought it as all in one smart phone, but unfortunately I was very disappointed. Very, very slow with 2GB memory card, also it doesn't support most common Audio\Video files such as WMA, WMV, AVI, MPEG and (MP3\WAV) some sound channels and rate. Slow application loader and file explorer. The battery's life 90 minutes maximum when browsing the net with full charge.
Excerpt: Cons: No North American 3g/HSDPA, if LG, HTC and Samsung can manage this I'm sure the worlds leader in mobile communication can figure it out. Over priced, not worth $1200, or even 900, OK maybe $500. Size and format, looks like a brick, bulky and ungainly in the hand. Pros: Screens nice and sharp. Makes good phone calls.
super hardware, unusable but nice to look at software

Summary: Nokia e90 -super: o suchfunktion in allen dokumentarten inkl. terminen, sms, etc. o kartenanzeige (schnell, detailliert, zoom funktioniert, schöne darstellung) o display ist hell, schön und scharf. -negativ o lange startzeit (ca. 10s, früher 0.5s) da das ganze teil abgeschaltet wird und nicht nur der telefonteil. Wenn ich also am abend meine ruhe will, dann schalte ich auf flugzeugmodus - dann geht's schneller. o das ganze software-konzept entstammt dem s60.
Summary: I have given up on the E90 after about 5 months - and with 13 months to run on the contract. It would be wonderful if it worked, but it doesn't work well enough. Collecting exchange email is absurdly slow, takes minutes just to check. GPS takes up to half an hour to lock onto satellites. Firmware updater software is hopeless, and even after battling through to install updates they don't really do much to improve things.
