Designed to work with existing cellphone base station technology the Nokia
9290 is scheduled for release summer 2002 at a price of about $900-$1000CDN.
The phone will work on existing networks which support GSM in North America
and is a good example of what Nokia have designed for the current state of
cellular technology. Unlike many of the cellphones you see demonstrated at trade
shows like Comdex, the 9290 can actually be put to use right now. Even with data
transmission speeds limited to 9.6-14.4Kb the 9290 will allow you to pick up
email, Word Documents and even Adobe PDF's on the go.
