Delayed until Q3????

Moconews is reporting that Nokia’s high-end N91 phone—the hefty, metal model with a built-in 4GB hard disk—has been pushed back to the third quarter of 2006, despite originally being scheduled to ship around last Christmas. The hangup? Implementing Microsoft’s Windows Media DRM, which for unstated reasons has proven more difficult for Nokia to include than they first anticipated.
There’s also mention that the bundled Symtella peer-to-peer file sharing software might not be included after all. The Gnutella-based P2P software would have allowed Nokia N91 owners to share files via the phone’s built-in Wi-Fi, but now Nokia’s spokesperson is said to be “talking guardedly about sharing N91 playlists by Bluetooth or MMS.”
Almost a year late and short features. Not good for a phone announced in April of ‘05.
Hey guys look at this phone display resolution, too bad a cell phone with this options 4GB etc....,
with this low resolution. 176X208 similar to 6600!!!!!!!!!
sean paul has already got this fone. he uses it in his new video 'Temputure'. looks really nice
ok dude now i believe you.
DRM software ( Microsoft )
thats the real reason for the delay. microsoft people are JUST ANNOYING. so they want their DRM WELL PROTECTED and nokia is having a hardtime and breaking their backs adding the WMA support specially de DRM type. the phone is working in fullset already i saw on a exbition a while back. not bugs were seen,no restarts, the screens LOOKS AWESOME the color rendering and so on. even its only 178 * 208 resolution. its not heavy i compare it with my ipod mini 6gb they were about the same. its set for march, i asked a nokia representative.
i have got an n91 and my opinion is that the phone is a killer!!its hot
it cost me 700$
I am loking for this phone. If anyone now link me up.
Nokia n91 cell phone
well all u guys must be waiting for this phone to come out .....so if u want to know when its gonna come out just watch ur tv sets cause nokia always advertise their phones on tv just before they come out ....well in south africa at least.
no it isnt out he is a lie
its not out anywhere i just check it...
you ppl in Delhi india.... i saw the N91 advertised on a big paper
South Ex part 2 there is a Nokia showroom look on the Side u will c the N series
N70 1 side
N90 other side
and just NEW up today N91 other side...
i think its coming 2nd march in india
I agree that this might be better than an I pod, BUT... what about the battery. I mean who cares how well it functions if you can only use it for 4 hours!!! I just bought the Creative Zen VIsion M and thats is what I consider the ipod killer!
i have got N91 2 days ago and now i hate it so much.it has many problems so i have to come to Nokia store to take care it.its cost me many times.damn it.its not good so everyones have to be carefull
this fone rocks man - yeah baby
i gotta get me this mean ass piece of kit!!
N91 may come in 2nd march
if not then it will come 12th march - 18th march dont worry
reason dfor delay
DRM software ( Microsoft )
phone should be out 2nd march otherwise 12 th - 18 th its almost here just wait
1st its not plastic its Stainless Steel :P
and its shiny :)
i got the N90 for 6 months now so itsw boring its buggy im sick of it so ill get the N91
this phone MAYB coming out on the 2nd march but 100% it iwll b out before 18th march
diffrent countrys diffrent launch dates
2nd march taiwan and others
14th march India
16 th march some places in europe
it will b out
i think its coming on 2nd in most countrys otherwise it will b in 12th - 18th week
the reason for delay was due to DRM ( Microsoft Software ) kept on crashing
ha ha ha well well well microsoft ...
so that is why people are saying IPOD killer
Ipod is APPLE and N91 is Microsoft / nokia
camara isnt too good
o0ops! sori the message is not for D-tox!
its for atlantis! hehehe my bad!
i dont care wat u guys think but im so0o getting this fone..
well im happy for the fact that i dont have to wait another more year... to get this thing! geezzz...
my bday is comin! 03/18! and i want this phone for my bday..
i have a mini ipod and the 6020.. and im kinda getting sick and tired of carrying 2things in my pocket! hahaha lol
why u waiting for this phone to be released in philippine?! hahaha u know wat me too! coz im planin to get the phone there!
so this "d-tox" person makes a fair point : the phone's specs are better than those of the ipod but he must have forgotten one tiny detail : the phone is darn ugly !!!!
fine so its basically a glorified ipod but how can you really compare this "thing" to a mobile ?!?
i wouldn't be seen dead with that block of plastic!
