Nokia N93i

 Nokia N93i Expected Q1 2007
9th January 2007

The original Nokia N93 is a fantastic phone with one real drawback.. it's a bit of a brick. At 180 grams, the N93 is one of the heaviest and largest phones on the market. So, as a remedy to this Nokia have come up with the N93i which is slimmer and lighter..

..but only just. The Nokia N93i weighs 163 grams and measures 108 x 58 x 25mm (compared to the N93 which is 118 x 56 x 28mm). Nokia have also improved the display in the N93i which is now in 16 million colours and has a wider viewing angle.

There's a reason for all this weight though.. as with its predecessor, the N93i is a feature packed digital imaging phone with a very high quality 3.2 megapixel with 3X optical zoom, VGA resolution video capture, TV output, an FM radio, a large 2.4" 240x320 pixel display, multimedia player, miniSD expandable memory, Bluetooth, 3G and WiFi support plus the Symbian S60 operating system. Everything else is pretty much the same as the N93, so we won't dwell on it here.

Nokia say that the talktime on the N93i is 1.7-3.3 hours on 3G, 3.1-3.9 hours on GSM which is significantly less than the N93's quoted 5 hours maximum talktime. Both the N93i and N93 have similar (but not identical) batteries - the N93i comes with the BL-5F 950mAh unit, the N93 has the BP-6M 970mAh one, so perhaps Nokia are being a little more conservative when it comes to the battery life figures. Either way, the N93i will drain the battery pretty quickly, and if using WiFi and Bluetooth, you can expect an even shorter battery life. But.. a bigger battery would mean a heavier phone, and you can see the problem.

The N93i has had a bit of a makeover too.. it's a sleeker, shinier phone than the original version and overall this perhaps makes the N93i look less intimidating than the older, chunkier model.

Nokia say that the N93i will be available during Q1 2007 for an unsubsidised price of around €600/£380 before tax.
