Nokia E90 review

 

Arguably the best-specified smartphone money can buy

Wi-Fi-enabled smartphone ; Typewriter console ; Built-in GPS and online mapping ; 3-megapixel autofocus camera

Big and bulky ; Full satnav navigation costs extra ; No touchscreen interface

A very impressive smartphone that excels in just about every area. But it doesn't come cheap

Nokia e90 Communicator mobile phone - FIRST LOOK - Pocket-lint

 

While it is still a brick, our first impressions suggest that this is the best brick from Nokia yet

Nokia E90 review

There was a time when Nokia's Communicators were truly a force to be reckoned with. There was little competition as far as Smartphones were concerned, and suited and business-oriented types simply loved the Communicators for their ...
