9300i vs E90 keyboard

Nice chart!

But about the keyboards..
Both keyboards on 9300i and E90 are less than perfect but in each case Iīve learned to live with it. It just takes time.

In the end E90 wins hands down. Itīs hardware blows me away. Firmware needs an update thatīs for sure. And maybe there arenīt as many shortcuts on E90 but more than I can remember anyway.

...And a neat tweak I found in E90. Open music player> adjust equaliser> now press menu key to multitask> open other media apps and dig the bass! Works with Realplayer, Internet Radio and even emTube. I doubt other commies can do that!

Some kind of Leica?

As an early E90 user (after 9210 and 9500 communicators), I would compare it to the Leica: robust, sturdy, away from fast outmoded trends, consistent, comprehensive and versatile. Once you are familiarized to it, when all is said and done, it's a frighteningly efficient tool. Difficult to imitate, as this article demonstrates.

Of course it has drawbacks, but I can live with them.

Thumbs up

It is my first communicator and I like it a lot. The big screen is great for use of calender, web (mail) etc. Shortcuts are good. Great for taking notes. Super to put appointments in while calling. Great as an outlook companion whith a keyboard that actually is usefull. Allso good for photos and filming on business trips, although not really easy to operate. Maps are still to complicated for practical use.
I know several people who prefer the 9500 as argued above. Would be interesting to see this evaluation with the new models launched in Q1 09

I have a E90 and l love it.The E90 works superbly as a phone. The E90 is, amazingly, (in my opinion) as good a stills camera and camcorder as the N95.

Smile Escape button

I also miss the escape button (9500 , 9300 , 9210) . But there is a workaround :
> press the red Phone/end key .
This closes the actual application in use , then start the application again , when needed . It's not that elegant but sometimes usefull .
☺ Regards jApi NL
