The Nokia E90 communicator has been launched in India. The E90 features a 3G high speed mobile broadband, with the ease of downloading and editing the documents easily. e90 is a quad band GSM and short cut keys to data and voice functions makes navigation easier. It holds the integrated GPS and none but not the least 3.2 megapixel camera with flash and auto focus makes it a complete phone.
The Communicator series of devices have always had the unfortunate nickname of "the brick", and the Nokia E90 continues in that tradition. At a hefty 210 grams, the E90 is actually 20 grams lighter than the 9500, but 38 grams heavier than the 9300i. Nokia have done a remarkable job with size though - when viewed from the front (see left), the E90 is about the height and thickness of the compact 9300/9300i while retaining the same width as the 9500 at 132 x 57 x 20mm.
The word “communicator” was made up by Nokia and identified a whole family or devices armed with QWERTY-keyboard. That didn’t hamper other manufacturers in their attempts to position their solutions after this device and name their products in a resembling way. It quite another matter, though, that back then those were pretty unsophisticated devices that were miles behind Nokia’s communicators in terms of capabilities.
