This is one huge surprise for me. When I bought the E90 I thought to myself that I would have to make a compromise on music and camera capabilities. Turns out – I was wrong! The E90 packs great music playing abilities but it is as if Nokia is trying to keep them in the shade. All we hear about the Eseries is business devices, business devices, business devices.

It took me an hour or so to set up the N81 8GB for use as my primary device and then a two hour charge for the headphone’s battery and I was good to go.
