Using my phone to blog a bit, and it is working well.. Surprisingly, the javascript features I added a long time ago still work, even if it is an unusual browser.

Oh well.. time to chill. :)

This E 90 is a sweet device

I'm really warming up to the E 90. Been playing some more with it now, and yes, it was a good buy.

Not 100% comfortable with the keyboard yet, but all the bells and whistles on this phone are just great.

I can set different ringtones for SMS messages (even MP3s), received calls and other things (currently using some pretty cheesy but funny ringtones), it works as a modem for my laptop (which came in handy, as my ISP has issues right now).

Using the E 90 as a modem was painless. Just plug it in, start the Nokia suite and open the internet connectivity tool, connect and start surfing.. yay for price caps on internet access!

Getting 198 kbit/s down and 67 kbit/s up when surfing via the phone, which is nice. :)

E 90

So, I've been playing a bit with my Nokia E 90, which I received last week.

First impressions: it's a big phone. Not only in size, but also in its capabilities. It plays Youtube videos, lets me download just about any music I want (http://www.mp3sparks.com thank you very much) and it's all good.

One small gripe with the device is the keyboard however. It just doesn't fit, and finding keys in the dark is proving difficult (maybe that gets easier).

So far I've installed instant messaging, an IRC client, a SSH client (putty for Symbian, yay) and some other things.

It's cool that the device has two screens; one big internal one, and one regular "mobile phone" display. So I can load up a video in Youtube using the browser and navigating with the keyboard, then close the phone and have the video display on the front. Neat.

I'm going to try to use it as a "connecting device" for my laptop soon as well, to see if its wireless, 3G and other capabilities enable me to use it as a kind of modem. Will let you know how it goes.
