    I saw this before I came home today. Pretty interesting, but I only like the flip model (N90). The other two don't exactly intrigue me. But the N91 isn't that bad of an idea. I just don't like it's style.

    I like the phones, but I agree that the N91 is a speciality one. It seems about the same size as an Ipod, and I'm not likely to carry one of those around all day.

    I like the Wi Fi addition and the WCMDA. Also a real headphone jack, not a Nokia pop port!

    Yea I forgot to mention that... having an actual headphone jack is a lot better than being restricted to some (most likely) lousy earphones from Nokia.

    But the more I see that N90, the more I like it.

    $900! Whoops that is a little high for my tastes. I finally sat down and put some mp3 music files on my 6230. Sounds very good even at 2Mb per 4 min song. Of course not before I mistakely placed an MP4 file on the MMC card and couldn't delete it. I finally bought a 12 in 1 card reader for my PC and that let me delete the file and make quick transfers.

    Learning how to convert MP4 to MP3 files took a little bit of googling. But with a 256Mb MMC I can carry 128 music files on my Nokia. I'm not sure I would need a Ipod like phone such as the N91. But one never knows until you have one!

    Nokia can certainly make some stylish phones though.

    I just hope that in the future Nokia makes the flash memory much more accessible. I couldn't stand opening up the phone every time to take out the MMC to put mp3s on it. Transferring mp3s via bluetooth was painfully slow along with using the data cable. :( But overall my 6620 was a great phone, I do miss it.

    Yes, BT was slow. I haven't tried a data cable, but I assumed that it would be as fast as transferring MP3's from a PC to Ipod or placing the MMC into a MCC card reader. I'm trying to keep my music files down to the 1 or 2 MB level and I don't change them that often.

    I guess the N90 is one answer. Seems that the memory card is accessible from a side door. n90 photo and review Sign on and click for a larger image.

    Oh awesome they added the N90 review. It does look a lot bigger than I thought but that's expected because of how much it can do.

    The reviewer comments on the Nokia screen quality caught my attention:

    The other really exciting visual feature of the N90 is the truly jaw-dropping display. The previous world record for a mobile phone was just slightly larger than QVGA (240 x 320 pixels). The N90 shatters that barrier with a beautiful 352 x 416 pixel display. It looks simply amazing. The pixels are so fine that they absolutely can't be seen with the naked eye; it looks like paper - but very bright and colorful paper

    Screen samples below:

    This reminds me of my first exposure to GSM in 1997. I saw most UK'ers carrying a Moto startac that would fit the SIM card (the size of a normal credit card) by sliding it into the bottom of the phone. The old Star tac were big enough to do that

    That way people could pass around the phone, pop in your own card, and charge the call to your account. Now the SIM is located behind the battery, like the MMC cards.

    A side door would be nice for the MMC and the SIM today again.

    The PPCPE had the SIM slot on the side. You just open the rubber door/flap and pop the SIM in. :)

    I wouldn't care that much if Nokia put the MMC under the battery, but for that they need to improve the speed for transfer data to & from the card.
