>> Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, Senior editor at CNET.com and today we're taking a First Look at the Nokia E90 Communicator. It's a big smartphone, but it has a big set of features. I'll start with the design, obviously it's really big. So it's not gonna comfortably slip into a pants pocket, but there are some benefits to the larger size. You've got this nice roomy dial pad here, so you can dial numbers, but you can also open it. And you got this really nice wide screen here that's great for viewing web pages and documents. You've got a keyboard here as well -- full QWERTY keyboards, so you can message or you know work on documents. Over all, the keypad is pretty easy to use, they have large buttons, but it's a bit stiff, so just be wary of that. Inside it's got pretty much everything a mobile professional's gonna need who work on office documents, and edit, create. It's also got e-mail, push e-mail capabilities and it works with a number of e-mail solutions. It's got Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, but the big disappointment here is it doesn't support U.S. 3G bands, so you're gonna be using EDGE speeds. This is a GSM phone, so you can use it with AT&T or T-Mobile. So that -- it's a big sticky point especially when you're gonna pay $1100 for this unlocked phone. You could probably find it for a couple hundred dollars cheaper, but if you're gonna pay that price, I would want the 3G. It's available unlocked. This has been your first Look at the Nokia E90 Communicator. ^M00:01:17 [ Music ]
The Nokia 2610 is a simple, user-friendly cell phone with a functional feature set. However, it lacks side-mounted volume buttons, and there was static on some calls.
The Nokia 1680 is adequate for anyone with minimal cell phone needs, but even moderate users will find it disappointing.
As with all Nokia N series smartphones, the Nokia N78 impresses with its high-end features, especially the new geotagging tool, but we were slightly disappointed by the spotty call quality.
The small and light 6610 will please casual chatters, but its mediocre features and so-so display will disappoint cell phone aficionados.
The Nokia 5310 continues the fine Xpress Music tradition by offering a satisfying blend of features and performance in an attractive design.
The Nokia E55 will please both business users and multimedia-minded consumers because of its slim profile, packed features, and wallet-friendly price.
The Nokia 5700 Xpress Music cell phone continues the trend set by the Nokia 5300, offering a satisfying combination of features, performance, and design.
The Nokia 6555 combines eye-catching design, a generous feature set, and admirable call quality into one satisfying device.
Though the price might be off-putting to many, the Nokia E72 is a well-designed and full-featured messaging smartphone for business users.
The Samsung Array sticks to basic phone features, but the user-friendly design and satisfying performance outweigh the disappointing camera and Web browser.
Nokia E90 Communicator Review
The good: The Nokia E90 Communicator is equipped with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS, and has a solid set of productivity and communication features for the business user. The Symbian smartphone also has a full QWERTY keyboard and 3.2-megapixel camera.
The bad: The Nokia E90 doesn't support U.S. 3G networks, and speakerphone volume is a bit weak. The handset is also heavy and bulky.
The bottom line: The Nokia E90 Communicator has a feature set as large as its size, satisfying the needs of the power business users. That said, we're disappointed by the lack of 3G.
