E90 Communicator

The versatile thing

25 October 2008, by CeD


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.

    Depending on their own needs, some peo­ple may have sim­i­lar ben­e­fits from other hand­held mul­ti-pur­pose ma­chi­nes (Blackberry, Apple, etc.) However, none ap­peared to be as ver­sa­tile as E90 when I made a choice, be­cause:

    1. its sys­tem ap­peared to be less man­u­fac­tur­er-de­pen­dent than others,

    2. it has a wider va­ri­ety of com­mu­ni­ca­tion in­ter­faces,

    3. it has a com­pre­hen­sive man-ma­chine in­ter­face (du­al screen and key­board with large in­ter­nal screen and key­board, true au­dio sys­tem, high qual­i­ty cam­era) very well in­te­grat­ed in­to the op­er­at­ing sys­tem. I am not re­al­ly ap­pealed by touch-screens.
