Nokia E90 Communicator
Sold and was replaced with Apple iPhone 3GS
Nokia E90 Communicator phone – with WiFi connectivity and built in GPS and 3.2mpixel camera. My phone connects to my car via a Parrot 3200 LS-Colour Bluetooth car kit. Also see my online cellphone functionality guide at http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dg5d78jh_2g7zzwt (ongoing effort). My favourite applications that I used on the phone were:
- Fring – 3G and WiFi mobile VoIP telephony and instant messaging, integration with Skype, Google Talk, MSN Messenger and SIP networks. Can make SkypeOut voice.
- Nimbuzz – using this instead of Fring right now as it can “buzz” offline Nimbuzz buddies to alert them of a message. Does not do VoIP calls but does do teleconference to local country numbers. Connects to Aim, GTalk, MSN Messenger, Yahoo and also does group chats. Now also had widgets that plug into MySpace, Facebook, etc.
- GMail – Java app that allows good functionality. Also access various other Google online application through your phone’s browser at http://mobile.google.com.
- SMS Chat – groups received and sent messages in a single thread for each recipient.
- Shozu – free service for your phone that makes it incredibly easy to send and receive photos, videos and music while you’re on the move. Will even auto upload photos as they are captured.
- WidSets – WidSets brings you information normally accessed via the Internet, directly into your mobile phone. Using mini-applications called widgets, it sends you updates made to your favorite websites. The system uses RSS feeds to push information from these websites directly into your mobile phone the minute theyre updated.
- WorldMate – support for travellers for weather forecasts, currency, day/night map, flight schedules, etc.
- Mobile GMaps – displays Google Maps, Yahoo Maps, MSN Live, OpenStreet Map, and Ask.com along with associated satellite views. Integrates with bluetooth or builtin GPS and tracks on map. Can save places. Shows bandwidth usage. Can view Google Earth KML files, subway maps, Wikimapia, FON and traffic info. Does Google Map searches and shows routes. NOTE: Google has requested that Google Maps be disabled in the latest version.
- Calcium – normal and RPN calculator. Uses joystick button for one handed operation. Good replacement for clumsy calculator that ships with the device.
