Nokia E90 Communicator launch this week, entirely new type of mobile next year
According to the interview given to E24.se news portal by Antti Vasara, General Manager of Mobile Devices Business Unit, Nokia E90 will start shipping in small quantities first in Finland, then Indonesia and will eventually reach Sweden this August.
When the rest of us will see this powerhouse of a cellphone is still not clear, since, according to Mr. Vasara, Nokia E90 Communicator is a pretty complicated piece of equipment and hard to produce in large quantities at first.
Other interesting bits of information that Mr. Vasara revealed in the interview were:
- Nokia is not too enthusiastic about touchscreens, since all their tests had shown that users prefer keyboard and joystick for an input device. But they are ready for touchscreens if they see the demand
- consumers don’t like to learn using new shapes/form factors on mobile phones. That’s why Nokia E70 isn’t selling well
- but Nokia will be launching entirely new type of mobile next year
Can’t wait to see what this Nokia’s “entirely new type of mobile phone” will be.
