Nokia E90 Review (Good for sys admins)

Posted on in Categories Beyond nixCraft, Linux Embedded devices last updated July 26, 2007

I’m still stuck with Blackberry and Nokia 6130, good folks at Osnews has posted a nice review of Nokia E90 business phone:

The E90 is a Communicator-class device and very popular among businessmen, but also among system administrators too (one of our friends, sysadmin at Google, is using Nokia’s qwerty/wifi devices specifically for SSH access). Read on for our review of the impressive E90.

Also checkout Nokia E90 and N95 side by side feature chat. I don’t have any plan to get new phone but I might try out Nokia 800 Internet Tablet PC soon :D.

BTW, do have an iPhone? If you have let me know your experience…

  1. I got the N800. Works well for ssh (free) and vnc (also free). The N810 with querty would be better, and I have my eye on it. That said, I upgraded my N800 from an N770 — I bought the 770 on a whim, thinking I’d use it frequently. I surprised myself by using it every day. With the 770, I read RSS feeds at night, used some VNC throughout the day, did a bit of browsing. With the 800, I added SSH usage and a SIP client to connect to my asterisk pbx.

    As for the iPhone — an AT&T store employee gave it to me as a loaner for a week. It SUCKS. Aside from the crippled/incomplete firmware (no video, no obex, no voice etc), the utter lack of a keyboard is a liability. The phone can NOT be used without looking at it. Any phone I’ve used thus far (and there are a LOT) has had either a keypad with an indexed “5” or voice-control. Aside from that, the voice quality is less than stellar, and the RF performance was noticeably worse than my Nokia E61i.
