one year user and still loving the E90. From time to time looking at other options, but for business use nothing beats the E90.

I've recently switched to the e90 after using the palm treo line for a very long time. The move was due to a need for a busines smartphone (e.g. with email, querty) with wifi and gps built in, the e90 fits that need perfectly (at least while the palm pre gsm is not yet available ).

I am liking this phone more as I used it. I think I will be using this phone for a long time still.

I've been using my E90 for about 19 months, and still think it's the best phone around, bar none. The build quality is fantastic, the internal screen is great, the keyboard is not as good as the Touch Pro's but it's still pretty decent, and I have no interest in getting a new phone anytime soon. I just hope Nokia continue to develop the Communicator line and don't consider the N97 a true replacement (which IMO it most certainly is not).

I just wish Nokia could sort out their firmware updating mechanism, as I have so far been unable to update my E90 to the v400 FW...

Still here with the Communicator E90. Now that I'm used to the keyboard (used to have a 9290) I am very happy with it.

It's hard not to notice how the qwerty has been all the rage for a while but the Communicator has had it all along even when the general conception was ".no one would really want a keyboard on their phone". Still, nothing comes close to the sturdy yet classy body of the E90.

The MP4 video that can shoot for as long as your memory card will hold is of great quality. I've managed to capture so many valuable footage because of it. The camera which is only 3 megapixel nevertheless has also served me well as I figured out how to use it to its fullest potential.

I wonder, now that everyone has hopped on board what the Communicator series will come up with. Whatever it may be, I'm sure it will be the leader of the trend again.

I've been using the E90 for almost 2 years, still the battery is great, and i just love this phone, i have been using Nokia's communicator product line for many years, i started with 9210i and i loved that too.
this is the best business phone out there, nothing can compare to it, and as my friend said iPhone is just a multimedia device with a sim-card built in .

although i'm really looking forward to buy the new communicator.
i think a faster CPU, ( maybe Intel Atom- because Nokia has been ordering chipsets for few month) i really don't care about the camera, Wimax , better GPS.
maybe a mini projector or some kind of video output connection built in. better battery. dedicated volume keys. larger outside LCD AND the most important thing is a pointer like 9300i had, that you could use it like a trackball like thinkpad laptops, it would be the best thing when browsing the web.

I think this will probably be my last communicator. The phone has been great in some ways and not so great in others.

Listening to music while I browse the internet at the airport

Watching converted videos on a plane.

Writing notes in my hotel room in docx format.

Checking in and chosing my seat for the return flight, on my communicator.

LCG profimail - so easy to use and works well.

The screen, great colour reproduction and clarity.

Stupid auto-update for my weather program and profimail sometimes can't connect to 3G, I take the phone from its holder to find it hot and the battery drained.

Specific support for E90. Sure, there are lots of symbian applications out there, but some only work with the inner OR outer screen.

Screen aspect ratio - should be taller, 352 is just not enough, like viewing the whole internet through a post box.

Built-in applications, why are they generally rubbish? email, calendar, notes, web browser, file manager, all basic and clunky. No easy way to change the default for the quick-launch keys, so, what you think is a great feature turns into a row of wasted keys.

Screen again - the OS doesn't take advantage of it. What I'd like is a split-screen feature so I can browse the web or view PDFs in one half and make notes in Quickoffice in the other. Also need cut and paste!

Take a look at how small the new portable PCs are:

Something like that would be great for short trips, airport, plane, hotel, meetings, poolside (small enough to be discreet without looking like a complete work-obsessed geek)

PLUS something slim, multi-media focused, easy to use, well supported with lots of cool applications... hmm, I wonder what that could be...


e90, manny, next>>>, users
