My Ideal Nokia E90 Communicator Cell Phones Successor
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been thinking about buying an E90 Communicator. As a Symbian S60 heavyweight, the E90 allows us to take advantage of its built-in QWERTY keyboard, WLAN capabilities and GPS chip. It also provides A2DP, a powerful 1500 battery, a MiniUSB port, and high-quality stereo speakers. Nonetheless, I just decided to hold off until another Eseries handset comes out to address the following issues.
- The E90 doesn’t come with a 3.5 mm audio jack, meaning I can’t use my wired headphones with it. Given its rather hefty price tag, I think this should have been added.
- The E90’s display firmly touches the keypad when the handset is closed. I’m a bit concerned about the damage this might inflict on the display, and am wondering why Nokia engineers didn’t elevate the rubber cushions in the corners of the lid to avoid this.
- The E90 doesn’t come with the small charger which you get with the N82 and the Nokia N95. The E90 would become a much more portable communicator if it had a miniaturized charger.
- The E90 doesn’t have a physical camera lens protector/shutter, and I don’t want to see the precious 3.2-mp camera lens damaged.
- Last but not least, the E90 has been out for almost a year and I’m afraid Nokia might introduce its successor shortly after I get mine.
Do you think my reasons are valid, or am I being too picky by ignoring the myriad capabilities of the E90 and focusing on these shortcomings?
