N95 8GB or E90 Communicator?

I'm on O2 UK, and I currently have an N80 internet edition... am due for an upgrade so I was looking at what's hot... I prefer Nokia stuff, so I was looking at the N95 8GB, looks great I think... I'll wait for that to appear... but then the E90 comes available...

Which should I pick - am stuck between them?

N95 8GB -
Smaller, lighter, better camera, more media focussed (?), 8GB storage but not expandable or swappable.

E90
Big internal screen better for internet & video, qwerty keypad, less storage but is is swappable.

Anyone know if the E90 will support Ovi/N-Gage etc?

What's people's opinions??

Thanks

Aside from a few other things, I think it boils down to which you want most:

Smaller size

or

Qwerty keyboard.

Size isn't much of an issue for me, I'm more concerned about the memory etc and how the features stack up...

I'm leaning towards an E90, for mobile internet, trying to think of any reasons the N95 8GB would be better than an E90 to see if any are deal breakers for me.

I can live with the 2GB memory I think, it still leaves enough to load a film and some music on...

What do you mean live with 2GB? If your on about the E90, Id be highly suprised if it doesnt take the same as many other nokias.

The N95 and 6110 say they only take 2GB cards on the nokia website, but many many people have larger in. The N95 takes 6GB, and I have a 4GB in my 6110.

I havent checked on the E90 forum, but ask and I bet theres people with 6GB in there. 8GB is due out soon, and theres no reason it shouldnt work.

If your not bothered by size, Id say the E90 is your thing.

Ahhh ok, I took the 2GB card size limit on the Nokia site as being gospel - it seems that is more down to the availability of cards than the reader itself then...

Thanks for that tip

It says 4GB on the website - http://europe.nokia.com/A4346043

If it takes a 4Gb card, that means it's compatible with SDHC cards (standard SD cards only go up to 2GB), and that means it will take the 6GB cards out at the moment and soon the 8GB and above.

It's quite possible that the E90 will not suppose N-Gage, officially anyway - Nokia haven't announced it for any E-series phones, which isn't very surprising considering they're meant to be business devices.

I probably wouldn't use it anyway I was just wondering, but you're probably right on the business thing, I guess it's not a desired feature in that segment of the market.

Ah you're right, I saw 2GB somewhere, must have been an error.

That's sorted that one then
