Looking for an opinion of Nokia's E90

Anybody have an opinion of this handset, from use ideally?

I presently use a 9300i, which has proved to be bomb-proof over the years; I'm looking to update my handset, and as I'm a big texter and would like to be able to input data to a corporate website via 3G the E90 is the 'obvious' choice from Nokia's range.

I'm an Apple desktop/notebook user too, and also using XP/Vista at the office; things I would like to do:
Telephone people (duh) and be heard/hear them.
Text, a lot.
Some word processing.
Email - text only.
Use my desktop/notebook to sync contacts etc. and to type texts archive texts via bluetooth.
Use as MP3 or FM radio.
Photos would be nice, but not essential for work.

Opinions or alternatives appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,


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. Also lack of 3G.

Would I have one.................. Yes ! I have toyed with one but dont own one of these............ yet....................

Specifications: Band / mode: WCDMA (UMTS) / GSM 850/900/1800/1900 ; Talk time: Up to 300 min ; Combined with: With digital camera / digital player ;

Thanks.

Well I'm pretty much UK/north Europe based for work, so the lack of US 3G wouldn't be an issue, but what is the difference between US an European 3G out of interest? I assume it would still work as for calls/texts in the US??

As for the bulk, I've tried one in store, and it's only a fraction bigger than my present 9300i which is okay for me; yes ideally I'd like to lose bilk, but not if it were to sacrifice the fantastic keyboard.

I guess in an ideal world I'd ditch the outer screen and number pad for a much slimmer screen; all I'd want with the communicator closed is a couple of buttons to accept/decline a call and caller display/time/battery/signal strength/message alert.... maybe on the E91??

It will still work for calls and texts in the US as far as I know. It's just the 3G based services you might not get when there which are mainly internet orientated.

Oh right; but that's more to do with network provider and subscription rather than the handset isn't it?

Nokia E90 review: Heavyweight champion - GSMArena.com, checkout the review, it is very much liked my the best phone site I know. I was once going to get one of these, but thats when suddenly the Noia N958GB popped up. I read this several times, great phone if you don't mind size.
