Jack-of-all-tradesLike earlier Communicators, this model has a clamshell design. Closed, the 9290 resembles an oversized (1.1 by 2.2 by 6.2 inches), candy bar-style mobile, with a standard numeric keypad and a black-and-white LCD. Open this baby up and you'll find a sharp, 4,096-color TFT display (640x200 resolution) and a QWERTY keyboard. At 8.6 ounces, the 9290 is far from pocket-sized, but to our surprise, it didn't weigh us down when we carried it in a purse or a briefcase. Running the Symbian OS on its 32-bit ARM processor, the 9290 is also a full-fledged PDA. You can sync the phone with as many contacts as your MultiMedia Card can store and send e-mail from Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes. Since the 9290 also has a full QWERTY keyboard, you can easily update, access, and edit to-do lists and calendar appointments on the 9290.
Synching sensationWe tested all of the Communicator's features and found them to be better than adequate in a pinch, If you get acclimated to the odd-sized keyboard (reminiscent of those found on some of the first Windows CE devices), you'll probably use the data and PDA features frequently, Since the phone lacks a touch screen, you'll have to get used to the switcheasy starfield iphone xr glitter case - pink four-way rocker key on the keypad and the four buttons on the side of the screen to navigate through the phone's menus, As noted, you can sync with your corporate or personal e-mail, By far, this is one of our favorite features since the 9290 supports IMAP4, POP3, MIME1 and 2, MHTML, and SMTP mail protocols and you can have at least five mailboxes on the device, We synched with our corporate e-mail and were able to access and respond to messages while on the road, Additionally, we could even send attachments, such as images that we ported to the device via its IR port..
The only downside of this app is that you first have to download all e-mail (new and old) every time you log on before your messages are sent. Since this Communicator doesn't support GPRS data networks, you're trudging along at a sluggish 9.6Kbps or 14.4 Kbps, depending on your location. If you get a lot of mail (200 or more messages) with attachments, this can be a taxing process. Big size, big batteryWe tested the 9290 (GSM 1900) phone in Florida, New York, Connecticut, and San Francisco using both Cingular and VoiceStream networks. Overall, call quality was sufficient. However, we did have to search for the speaker's sweet spot in order to hear people better.

ARS said that 91 percent of broadband companies that have been in business since the beginning of 2001 have raised their rates. The firm added that the consolidation of service providers last year will ultimately mean fewer provider choices and higher prices for consumers. "We expect that this trend of increasing prices will hamper the widespread adoption of broadband services and that the vast majority of users will continue to access the Internet via dial-up connections for the foreseeable future," ARS analyst Mark Kersey said in a statement.
