Software is the absolute issue: it hangs when you needed the most. After
using it for a little more than 2 years, I got tired of it. Waited for
its replacement, Nokia 9500. But it took SO LONG for Nokia to replace
it, i had no choice but went for an O2 xda2. There you go Nokia! Don't
sleep on it for too long. You always replace other models so fast, but
with communicator, you took your time and let your loyal customers to

This is a large phone. However I travel heavily and this phone allows
me to do my email, run various apps that are important and be a pretty
good contacts database. The screen is great for reading books, which
works really well. The 9500 which I've seen certainly improves on the
cons of this phone, weight, thickness, Bluetooth, wifi and tri-band.
If I didn't travel so much I'd go for a smaller phone but the 9210 is
a pretty good phone.

Nokia was producing a series of good phones but then broke it by introducing
a DISASTER......Nokia 9210: .Too bulky .Too big .Too heavy .No good
applications .Nothing fancy .Not very attractive ...... and so the list
goes on ..... DONT BUY THIS NOKIA DISASTER, IT HAS PUT NOKIA TO SHAME!!!!

I think this is by far the best cellphone but only thing it lascks is
FM, Blue tooth, Tri-band and built-in Digital camera. Also change the
external appearance it can have a small colour screen outside and try
to put a much faster processor.

I had bought this in the UK.Now I'm using in India.I have a serious
problem with the reception.Some times even the entire signal is disappearing
and absolutely I won't be in a position to use the phone.Rest of the
features in ok. I tried to correct this reception problem s times at
Nokia care chennai.But almost crazy ,they had it for a long time and
once they delivered it went into the same problem.The next time they
did it free of cost and again it got into same trouble.I don't understand
who to cry.!!I was thinking why I spent for this if Nokia doesn't correct
your problem.I sincerely feel Nokia lacks in service and solving problems.Nokia
is a great design and marketing company but not a service oriented company.Also
the screen is very sensitive!!it breaks even if the phone falls down
with the big case. Will anyone help me out to make this phone back to
life. Please mail at firstname.lastname@example.org

Another excellent edition to the Nokia family, but this time in a different syle. The name: 'Communicator' speaks for itself, and the Microsoft Applications work very well. Ideal for those who travel and work in the world of business. Don't be put off by the boring cover design - a superb phone! Well done Nokia!

Outstanding phone. Most of the detractors probably do not ned the features
of the 9210. It is larger than a phone but includes full keyboard with
wide screen and more applications than any competitor. Where else can
you send/receive a fax on the train, send and receive email, including
attachments, have full internet access and a decent outlook sync diary
with full month view to include the days activity? I gave had every
one of the communicators from the original 9110, 9110i, 9210 and have
the most recent 9210i. Only disappointment is the lack of bluetooth,
this really would be useful for sync and to deal with UK car phone laws.
If you need a tool for work, buy this - if you want a toy, buy the P800.
I have a P800 that I was told would do all the 9210i did + bluetooth.
Gave it to my kids to play with, they liked the 'draw in colour' feature.
mail email@example.com if you are in any doubt!

THIS PHONE IS TOO BIG AND BULKY, I CAN NOW SAY I HAVE CARRIED A TELEPHONE
BOOTH IN MY POCKET. IT WEIGHS AS MUCH AS A CATHEDRAL, AND I CANT TAKE
IT TO WORK BECAUSE I WEIGH 70KG AND THE PHONE WEIGHS 950KG, SO I CANT
USE THE LIFTS OR ESCALATORS, LAST TIME I USED THE ESCALATORS, THEY BUCKLED
UNDER THE SHEER PRESSURE FROM THE PHONE, AND WHEN I LAST USED THE LIFTS,
THE SUPPORTIG BEAMS COLLAPSED, TRAPPING ME! IT BROKE THE SCALES WHEN
NOKIA TRIED TO WEIGH IT, SO NO-ONE REALLY KNOWS HOW MUCH IT WEIGHS,
I TRIED TO WEIGH IT ON SPECIAL SCALES, THAT THEY USE FOR WEIGHING ELEPHANTS,
BUT THE DIGITS WOULDN'T GO THAT HIGH. IF ANY ONE HAS ANY COMMENTS ABOUT
THIS REVIEW, KEEP THEM TO YOURSELF.

I think this is by far the best cellphone I have ever laid my hands
on. But it can be better: Make it tri-band, make it thinner, put faster
processor on it and please put blue tooth hands free headset as an option
for it, and you'd have the best fone in the industry. I would not hesitate
to invest a huge sum for it and Im sure a horde of followers would do

No phone as of the moment could beat the Communicator. Full of applications,
games plus the Microsoft like apps. It may be bulky but it can come
in handy on places you least expected.

the 9210 is a fantastic phone but sadly it lacks of battery life and
is like carrying a brick round with you. having a built in lap top is
fantastic but it lacks features. the phone is absouloutly HUGE and costs
loads. if i wanted a laptop and a mobile phone i would buy a laptop
computer that actually does something and a decent phone like the samsung
t100. it would be much more worth the money. the 9210 is handy though
when you are on the train or bus or something because you dont have
to carry a big laptop when you can take a smaller thing like the 9210.
is handy for word processing and reminders but i would find it much
easier to just type a text in a mobile phone and save it in my messages
rather than do full word processing. keys on keyboard are to close together
and typing is hard. well done nokia but sad battery life, features,
and keys. i have now given up on the 9210 and got a samsung a800. absouloutly
fabulous and much more worth the money.
