Nokia N70 Music Edition, N73 Music
Edition and N91 8GB
Nokia has given three of its N-Series
handsets a makeover, both in terms of looks and features.
The technical enhancements are mainly more memory and
improved multimedia software.
The most significant upgrade is to the
Nokia N91 8GB (pictured centre) which now has
an 8Gb hard disk, up from 4Gb on the original
Nokia N91. It's an obvious enough upgrade for Nokia
- hard disk capacities continue to increase, and it
keeps the N91 one step ahead of its memory card based
rivals. However, even with the makeover it's still a
pug ugly phone.
The oldest handset to receive an upgrade
is the Nokia N70 Music Edition. One of the original
N-Series phones, many observers assumed that the N70
was going to be pensioned off.. but not so. The N70
music adds support for up to 1Gb of memory and adds
a black finish, but it still doesn't fix the original
N70's serious issues of a cramped keypad and relatively
low resolution screen.
The Nokia N73 Music Edition is
a bit of an oddity here - it's a very recently released
handset with no major shortcomings. It can support up
to 2Gb of memory and again the software has been improved.
N73 is a well-liked handset, so the N73 Music should
be just as well recieved.
Nokia say that the N70 and N73 Music
should be available from October 2006 in certain markets,
with the Nokia N91 8GB hitting the shops by Christmas.
