  2. This is very cool indeed! I wonder how it affects the general phone performance. I’m guessing this also isn’t a phone he actually uses for calls, seeing as phones put data connections on hold when a call is in progress.

    Not on the 3G networks apparently, it can serve a data connection and keep the voice channel open. Oh, how I would love to get a 3G Nokia phone here in the US… oh please oh please oh please let the E90 have US 3G bands.
