I forgot the thank you for the useful review in my earlier post - many thanks.
Surely it wouldn't be too difficult, especially now that Symbian is open-source, to create a kind of C drive swap file...

Surely the problem here, as identified already several times by this site, is that Nokia has fudged a touch UI onto a cost-reduced hardware platform running keypad-oriented software. Touch works for...

A strange marketing approach for ARM - an old processor, and running portable Java, so it would have worked just the same on an Intel or Motty processor core. More like an advert for 1) Lego, 2)...

I wonder if 'network based' means you can use A-GPS but not GPS alone, thus forcing a billable data connection - this might explain the very low price point, i.e. the networks are confident of...

Most amusing, but why did you have to have that enormous fluffy lump sitting next to you making no useful contribution whatever?

Hi Steve, nice review as always, but only out of interest, I would buy neither phone.

I think the screen-scratch issue is much more significant than you give credit to in the review. I suspect...

Thanks David, very interesting and very useful. I'm not sure I understand your comment about video conversion - I don't believe coreplayer will play a 640x480 avi at any kind of useful bitrate, so...

'Unregistered' above - the iPhone has succeeded primarily because its software is very refined. I will have a tenner with you now that Maemo 5 is a basket case when the N900 launches, and that...

Agree with JGlazener above - there is nothing current or coming which has the same set of features as the E90 - large hi-res screen, full keyboard, and monster battery. There are many devices which...

Dead right Unregistered LOLer, but the phones lasted for years!
Now Mr Nokia can sell us a new phone when our feeble plastic touch screens are all scratched up after a couple of months.

"the price alone inspires confidence that they've tested these things properly"

Reassuringly expensive, eh Steve?

A bit like Bernie Madoff's commission fees.... worked for him, mostly.

Steve - take a deep breath and relax. Such products exist to sweep up the muppets, those who are too lazy to enquire. They are, in the words of Lord Sugar's legendary Ratnerism, a "mug's eyefull".

Hi Steve,

Re the little LG you mentioned in the Show, it doesn't have a touch screen as we know it, it has a matrix of a dozen or so touch cells which match the on-screen keypad map - if you look...

I wonder if Nokia will ever make a non-touch phone better than the E90.
This one has the E90's battery but nothing has the E90's screen, even the bug-crippled N97, and it looks like hardware...

Anyone know if this would work with a USB hard drive?
It would have to be self-powered of course.

I've noticed that very dead phones don't light up with the 'Nokia' logo for five minutes or so (perhaps longer) after they go on charge - perhaps you should have left the N86 plugged in and gone off...
