would i ever use it to talk?

This.
Phone.
Is.
Amazing.

The Nokia N93

The price range means i probably won't be getting one anytime soon. Although my T-Mobile contract is up at the end of Nov so I'll have a credit i can put toward a phone...but yeah, not $700 worth of credit. If T-mobile even offers this, which they probably won't for a few months.

Anyway, here's what makes this phone so amazing: think of everything you've ever heard about or wanted in a phone, mash them all into one, take away the QWERTY keyboard - and you have this phone, or its soon-to-be-released sibling, the N95.


Two hi-res color screens? Check.
Triband/EDGE? Check.
Bluetooth 2.0? Check.
MiniSD Slot? Check. Supports up to 2GB right now.
Digital music/video support? Check. Including most online music stores (sans iTunes)
Wifi (802.11b/g)? Check. Yes. 54MBps G wireless.
Opera bowser with Java/Flash support? Check. Hit more than the 'mobile' web.
FM Radio? Check.
Camera? Big time check. 3.2 megapixel stills, 640x480 (VGA) 30fps videos, 3X optical zoom lens...

If you think about all these features it really isn't a bad price. If I showed you a lass-than-palm sized camcorder that shot DVD-ish quality you'd easily expect to pay $250 for it, if not more. How much for a straight PDA with wifi...about $250 at least. An MP3 player that supports movies and online music stores...$175 for a 2GB version. Heck a portable FM radio would set you back $12. I'd say its a heck of a bargain with all that in mind. Oh yeah...and its a phone too.

The only thing the N93 doesn't have that i could think of would be the aforementioned QWERTY keyboard, and GPS. Well, the N95 (to be released next year) will have a bigger screen and GPS built-in. Just take away the 3X optical zoom lens. It has more of a PDA look to it too.


If they would just add the QWERTY keyboard...
