Nokia N91

If you are a regular ready of this website, you will, I am sure, have seen the article of how to NOT launch new cell phones. Why is it that Nokia get it right every time?

The Nokia N91 has a cute little 4 gig hard drive on board to store your music. The quality of the output is fantastic. DJ Freshm who currently has no job, and Sasha from 5fm, played and mixed tunes with 4 seperate N91's through nightclub speakers and it worked!

The phone is small enough to fit in your pocket and it can take pictures with it's fantastic camera. Try that with your iPod. Regular headphones can plug into the device and if you plug in the sound canceling Senheizers, what more would an audiophile need?

What about robustness? When I went to the original launch, I tested the phone by dropping it on the floor while a song was playing. Nothing happened. It carried on playing, no problem.

When it came to upgrading the other day, I found myself staring at my new N91. Music, pictures and everything else you need is a handy sized 'device' from Nokia.

Yo Jon...

Here's the BIG question... does the N91 have a semi-decent calendar/diary thingie? I'm SO on the verge of getting one. But I've been hanging on for the new Ericcson PDA phone.

Gimme your opinion, bebbe!

Oh... yeah... what's the megapixel spec on this baby's camera?

I am sure that it has the regular Nokia diary. I am yet to play with one for a preiod of time but Nokia keep the basics throughout.

Most sink with your PC diary and this phone even has WiFi!!!!!

As for megapixel, 2 Megs is more than enough!!!

Dude... this phone appears to be a winner. I think I'm in. Now I've just gotta get hold of the damn thing. Phoned upgrades at Autopage today, and they don't even know what phone I'm talking about. 'I think you mean the N90,' the lady said.

By the way... that's SUCH a porno-stud photo you've got on your profile dude. Get a moustache, and the picture is complete. (This is my friendly way of saying, 'GET A STYLIST!!!! URGENTLY!!!!')

Don't mess with the shirt!!!

I know about how bad Autopage is! I upgraded to an old Razor but got a PSP thrown in for free.
