Nokia aims high with new multimedia cellphones

Chris Davies - Sep 26, 2006

Cor blimey, there're a whole load of new Nokia phones about to sashay their way off the electronic catwalk and into your nearest carrier's cell-tower range.  Some of them are curious and new, blinking like fresh kittens in the harsh Summer sun, while others are updates of more mature phones, street-wise and cunning, but with a hint of innocence around the eyes.

Sitting comfortably under the N-series moniker umbrella parasol damn this metaphor, Nokia is keen to stress the multimedia capabilities of each model.  First up is the N91, an update of the hard-drive toting iPod competitor - this time round it's packing 8gb of storage and a Darth Vader-style black casing, support for the A2DP Bluetooth wireless headphones standard and a great range of music files (MP3/AAC/AAC+/eAAC+/WAV/M4A/WMA).  Shortly behind it is the N73, capable of handling 2gb of storage for both audio and images from its 3.2 megapixel Carl Zeiss autofocus lens, with the N70 bringing up the rear; 1gb of storage and a 2 megapixel camera with 20x digital zoom and LED flash.
