They're Coming...

One of my good friends gave me an earful about the new Nokia N91 the other day. I had to check it out for myself. Sure enough, it doesn't suck.
For starters it's a Nokia with all that implies. Stability, accessories, style, and cost. Okay that last one I just threw in for fun. ;-) But seriously, I've always been a Nokia fan mostly because they don't suck. This new two megapixel musicphone sure sounds legit. The phone should be out shortly, although dates for wide availablity aren't known. A phone with this capacity and features is definitely hitting the market sooner than anticipated. It is part of Nokia’s new media-centric N Series, which is a direct assault on Sony Ericsson and Samsung. The critical punch is the 4GB microdrive which can store one heck of lot of music. There is an industry standard 3.5mm headphone jack which means you don't have to settle for a crappy phone vendor headset any more. It will support the playback of MP3, M4A, AAC, and WMA audio files although I haven't verified the level of DMA capability yet. It does come with USB 2.0 so you can just drag and drop your files which promises a smooth synchronization experience. For the true technocrats though the N91 has 3G (WCDMA) and both built-in WiFi and Bluetooth. This means you can push music any old wireless way you want! You'll definitely want to check this phone out when it becomes available later this year.
