The versatile thing
25 October 2008, by
WOMworld, a U.S. website dedicated to Nokia devices, ’discovers’ these days how versatile E90 is. They are asking visitors to comment on this post in describing all the things they do with their Communicator.
Obviously, this is a very late understanding of what a Communicator is nowadays: a micro-PC always in your pocket, offering a complete qwerty or azerty keyboard, a ’serious’ web browser, at least 10 times more autonomy than a laptop, much less system crashes, a boot time that doesn’t measure in minutes but in seconds, and above all a hand-held machine capable of doing 90% of the tasks you used to perform with a PC or a laptop before, plus many other tasks a PC will never allow (just two examples amongst many others: answering a phone call on the go, checking where you are with GPS).
So I will not list all the tasks I do with it, they are countless. Just this: the Communicator is naturally intended to be the default computer of anyone having a laptop and an E90. As far I am concerned, my laptop has become my 2nd computer for more than one year. And it’s built like a Leica.
This would be even more evident if mobile operators (specially in Europe) would stop using prohibitive rates for 3G data connection.
NOTE: E90 is a pre-Elop device. That is probably the reason why it will never have a worthy successor.
