Oh, and re: Tv out. Thanks for the link head-up. Our brief loan E90 arrived bare - I guess there'll be a special 2.5mm tv out lead in the final box. My existing Pop port and 3.5mm Tv out leads were a no-go though, and there's no tv out app in the ROM yet.....

Early days, guys!

Steve

What magical function am I missing in my E61 that should be available by pressing CTRL-A? Just curious...

Does the E90 GPS allow basic functions like saving waypoints which can later be exported to a text file containing their coordinates (like I can do with a Garmin handheld)?

Wink Thanks, Steve

Hello Steve,

thanks for your 36-hour a day effort at answering all of our comments!
We tend to focus on the E90 a bit too much...and forget the reviewers.
Thanks again.
F

Maybe this is impossible to answer with a prototype but...

How well does it sync with Outlook? e.g. is it improved over the 9300?

I don't care personally but this is vital to a friend who is thinking of jumping ship from a 9300 to a (gasp) Windows mobile phone because of this.

Why no UMTS/HSDPA frequencies for the U.S.?

Syncing? It syncs PERFECTLY to Outlook, I did it just now on the proto. All my contacts etc. More screenshots in "E90 Extra", a big additional article I'll put up on Monday when I've caught my breath.

A2DP? Yep, though I can't test this as I don't have a Bluetooth headset.

Really liking this E90 now, once they've err... finished all the little bits they haven't done yet, it'll be my main device for sure. Battery life sucks on this proto, but with a 1500mAh battery, I'm sure they'll fix this well before release.

Steve

Thanks but I think the problem is to do with a lack of categories in the 9300 Calendar therefore that info doesn't get synced (sunc?) to Outlook. I may be wrong on that as I don't use Outlook myself so never really grasped the problem. I read on a different E90 preview that this still doesn't happen - can you confirm?

Anyway, it's too late for my friend now as he's gone to the dark side and bought himself an 'XDA Orbit' (whatever that is)

Question

Steve, in your E90 extra post, please put more screenshots of quickoffice e.g. how do page/slide view of ppt/doc/xls documents look like in E90 internal screen.
Thanks in advance - cooli.

Ok, will this communicator have predictive text on the external keypad?

Reception?

How good is Indoor / Outdoor reception? It is very important to me since I am working in China and reception in some areas is not good. How strong speaker / Vibrate?

Thanks!

Hi Steve and Rafe

Thanks very much for your previews and comments on the new E90 communicator. I'm an ex psion 3a, revo and 5mx user, which I mainly used for it's agenda application. Since my 5mx died for the 3rd time in a row, I decided to quit it and move to a moleskine paper diary, which although nice, isn't quite the same.

My question is would the E90 satisfy me for agenda use?

All best and thanks,
duncan.
