Excerpt: In April of 2005, Nokia announced a new line of mobile phones called the Nseries which focused on new multimedia technologies such as 3G, Carl Zeiss Optics, megapixel image sensors, and large amounts of memory. Three phones were announced as part of the Nseries - the N70, N90, and the N91.The N90 is the middle phone of the N series. It has a considerably redesigned 60th platform being the first representative of the new generation smartphones by Nokia.
Conclusion: Were it not for Nokia, those who need a smartphone but also want a great camera would be sulking in the corner. The N90 is both a powerful smartphone with full syncing capabilities and a multimedia treat.
Conclusion: The N90 is clearly an evolutionary step in the merging of the cell phone and camera, rather than a destination. A number of 2-MP cell cams with superior ergonomics and better optics are beginning to make their way into stores, and this trend will continue until manufacturers happen upon a successful design.
Pros: Good digital camera with 2MP resolution; rotating lens and screen; EDGE network and world compatible
Cons: Bulky; heavy; uneven video recording; non-standard headphone jack; hard to find; expensive
Summary: Classic management strategy is to form something, and then (brain)storm it to improve the product. With the N-Series phones, Nokia is clearly out of the forming stage and into the storming. With the N90, a design team has sat down and decided to make the best camera phone possible. Have they succeeded?
Summary: As for the connection quality the device is a typical representative of Nokia smartphones with no serious problems. As compared with the Nokia 6680 the phone gained some significant advantages. Particularly, a voice recognition independent from the pronunciation appeared, no preliminary bookmarks are necessary. The screen is one of the best on the market and the best in its class. The external screen is the best in its class considering all the characteristics.
Summary: The N90 is certainly an excellent camera phone but its size and weight and extremely slow interface, amongst other issues, leave a lot to be desired. At this inflated price, we expect much better.
Pros: 2.0 Megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and autofocus, external screen, distinctive design, crisp internal screen with high resolution, display light sensor
Cons: Size and weight, small displays, lack of regular headphone jack, poor external speaker, extremely slow interface, no vibration, poor sound quality for MP3’s, slow loading times at start-up, expensive
