Nokia 9290

Info Photos Reviews  7 News Forum  3  

This US version of the popular 9210 includes impressive features for a PDA, combined with a phone. The unit is rather bulky, and lacks GPRS, but is still impressive for the huge color display and PC-like features.

This phone is not currently available from any major U.S. carrier. It is compatible with some U.S. networks, and may be available from third-party dealers or smaller, regional carriers.
