Sharing a 3G connection via a wireless router is nothing new, but in the past it has required a bland, sterile box built to look like a Wi-Fi access point. That certainly isn’t the case with Top Global’s Phoebus, which draws its engineering innovation from the greatest engineers of all, the ancient pharaohs. Though you won’t find many precious goodies buried in this little Luxor, you will find an 802.11b/g router that will share your standard 3G card (EV-DO, EDGE, etc.) with your neighbors. If internet access is scarce and your crew needs to hit MySpace in a hurry, drop your pyramid on the table and have at it.
The E90 has a dual hinge which allows it to open like a 9500 or fold-up flat like the 9300. Though the phone is not officialy announced by Nokia its specs are already out, EDGE, Wi-Fi and HSDPA. A suprising addition is the 3.2 Megapixel camera. The E90 will be running on the Series 60 3rd edition operating system. It also has a secondary VGA camera for video conferencing. The external screen has 240 x 320 pixel resolution, but the shocker is the internal screen with a resolution of 800×352 pixels. No info is available on the Processor speed, Internal memory but what we do know is that the E90 supports Micro SD cards.
There is a marketing terra incognito between Phone/PDAs and ultraportable notebooks into which exploratory forays seem to disappear forever: it is the form factor of no return, better known as “UMPC with a keyboard”. The HTC Athena X7500 hopes to conquer this undiscovered country and become its King.
