What’s on my N90?

nokia-n90.jpgI’ve been using a Nokia N90 S60 smartphone for almost a month now. I have the full unlocked 3G version from Europe, not the crippled cracked out one you can buy at Ritz Camera in exchange for a new contract with T-Mobile.
I routinely change things up, get new devices, but I always seem to come back to S60. I think this is largely because the devices are just so damned usable and functional, especially when compared to BlackBerry devices, the Treo, UIQ devices such as the Sony Ericsson P910 and the like.
Some of the built-in applications on the N90 are quite good. For example, the email client is fantastic. It supports IMAP, IMAP-IDLE, and email gets pushed to me as fast as my BlackBerry ever got it. I have no complaints there, really. The input device doesn’t even bother me that much because a lot of my email when I’m mobile is consumption anyway, and I rarely have to type out a huge edict or anything unless I’m at a desk. Even the built-in browser is quite good. I have also installed Opera and Opera Mini but honestly I use the built-in browser most of the time.
But like any smartphone user, I have managed to accumulate some favorite applications over the last month that I feel are very useful, so I’ll be outlining them in this post.
This post is a doozy. Get comfortable.
