Nokia E90 Released

I’m happily using my Nokia E70 for quite some time now. However, as an ex-user of two Nokia Communicators, I couldn’t help yesterday but wonder if Nokia will release a better version of its Communicator series.

Voila – then I found the news that Nokia E90 has been launched !

The Nokia Communicator series has been notorious for being slow and missing common high-end features, and a few other ugliness. I was so pleasantly surprised that E90 will be the first Communicator that won’t be so. Check it out :

  • Slow ? Nope, E90 uses the same processor as N95 & N800, and very speedy ! It’s able to do fullscreen video playback smoothly.
  • Weak / cheap feel ? E90 now sport strong hinges, and feels solid overall.
  • Internal memory ? 128 MB overall, usually leaving 80MB free. This is one problem on E70 – turned out it has small internal memory, so sometimes it’s not able to run more that a few apps simultaneously. No such problem with E90.
  • Connectivity ? it’s worthy of its name – Quadband GSM, bluetooth 2 w/ A2DP support, WiFi, USB 2, GPRS, EGDE, UMTS (3G), HSDPA (3.5G). Very, very nice indeed. No fax though, but you can workaround this for example by subscribing to Internet-based fax service.
  • Camera ? no more weak VGA cam – it’s now a 3.2 MB camera with LED flash plus an internal cam for video calls !
  • Other features ? GPS – finally ! Stereo speakers, 3D, FM radio, now also vibrates (!), updateable firmware via Internet, etc.

E90 is what 9500 should have been. Now it has all the important features, and then some. Very well done Nokia. When I got this, it may very well cause my laptop to gather dust at home.

Looking forward to its launch in Indonesia.

  1. i don’t think it has GPS capability per se, but A-GPS, assisted GPS (look it up on wikipedia, it uses LBS).
    .
    and i’m just tired with jack-of-all-trade-master-of-none devices, lately i’ve been thinking about blackberry. its YM client has conferencing capability, could you find this on WM/symbian/java? it’s really interesting, if BB could run opera mini flawlessly, then i’m sold.

  2. many news from 3GSM Barcelona. E90 is launched along with E65 and E61i. E61i only differs in 2mp camera,nav keys and microSD to the old E61. *stick to my old E61.. but staring jealously to E90 :)*

  3. @Ryosaeba – PC is a perfect example of jack-of-all-trade finally becoming a master-of all-trade 🙂 Games? No longer Amiga / Commodore. 3D modelling? It’s no longer SGI. Server? PC servers have caused serious decline in mainframe / big server sales. And so on.

    After using the Communicator series for years, I think finally it has starting to become a master-of-some-trades.

  4. wow.. i didn’t know they just released the new version of communicator! that’s great… my dad uses the previous version, but i didn’t have a great impression of it 😀

    P.S. I have a difficulty posting a comment here… It says: Error: This file cannot be used on its own.

  5. @Amellie – hi, thanks for letting me know of the problem !

    Here I’m using Spam karma 2 plugin to combat the spammers. Sometimes, very rare, it will show that error message.

    Don’t worry, it’s just some kind of session time-out problem. Just reload the original page, entered the comment again, and all should be ok.

    thanks

  6. Yeah…I like it! The vibrates mode surely will help when the environment is loud and won’t have the miss calls on it anymore. I don’t know..but somehow I get the feeling that the size is a little bit big and some spaces are there without efficient needs. But can’t wait to see it by my ownself. Rgds

  18. GPS enabled mobiles are quite awesome and interesting to use.I think in these days moblie have provided us lot of features which are quite helpful in storig information.Recently I am working on car loan modification systems and softwares and I think these are quite awesome systems.

  19. i have a 7310 i. im happy with it. never had any problems with it and i have 2 housing for it pink and blue. it’s a cool phone for girls. but it gol older like others could say, but im happy with it.

  20. The Nokia E70 is a beautifully designed 3G smartphone that comes with a very simple & effective opening system. The handset looks like any normal phone in the closed position but the user can lift up the phones ordinary keypad & flip it over 180 degrees.It provides the user with a full keyboard too which is separated by the large screen. Anyway, it’s really a very good news that Nokia E90 is released.

  21. I am really impressed with this product. This is very square but I’m sure that Nokia has done it job well.

  23. E90 users finally get Blackberry Connect now. The BlackBerry Connect program enables the mob-e-mail leader’s push e-mail and data access solutions to work with non-Blackberry devices. BlackBerry Connect 4.0 adds the ability to generate an encryption key wirelessly.

  25. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. Thanks a lot.

  26. Bicara Nokia nggak ada habisnya. Selain kualitas handal, vendor ini mempunyai idealisme tinggi. Disaat merek lain ikut bermain Android, Nokia tetap kukuh dengan Symbian.
