If reports of poor call quality and an easily scratched screen have scared you off from buying the Nokia E90 Communicator, now might be the time to put your fears to rest and get in line.
According to a company spokesperson, the E90’s defective microphone component has been fixed, the keyboard has been slightly modified, and a new "strengthening layer" has been added to the screen. While all of this is excellent news, the consequence of the improvements is that availability of the S60-based device is now "more limited . . . than originally anticipated in some markets."
Exactly which markets is unknown, but Amazon.com, who is selling the Nokia E90 unlocked for $850, estimates U.S. delivery times between 4 and 6 weeks.[Reuters via Gadget Lab]
