Nokia should not hope that this would cut down ipod business. At its extremely high price (I hear it is over $AU1,000),the best Colour Ipod at 30GB (in Australia) + quite a decent phone combined would get out way less than this fancy gadget. Nokia better put the price as down as/near Ipod's mini (now nano) to get any competition at all in terms of the current market. The bottom line is it is not worth it for the time being but yes, there are hopes for the future.
hmmm, great phone with extremely good functions. Simply love it and cant wait for it to be sell at singapore. hahah~ anyone have any idea how much the phone is??? I need to know and I can start saving now~ haha
The iPod will most definately lose some of its business to this phone, however, it probably won't loose much, due to the high price. but as music phones continue to evolve, improve and get cheaper, apple will start to feel it. they'd better do something sooner rather than later.
wat ever bout dis cell it's features n stuff,i dont think it wud replace ipods n especially wid new video ipods out which r slimmer n sexier steve jobs got d JOB DONE.Wont give up ma ipod 4 this ,will buy d new video ipod n may compromise on this cell,after all its apple n its ma 1st preference, wud rather compromise this phone n get a i-pod, n wud buy a N70. N how may of u think this cell phone is a serious threat2 i-pods?
where is the flash.... you should expect it cause its a beautiful and technical high developed phone...
if you can buy it do it, this phone is more than a smartphone/mp3/wifi/edge/3g/radio/camera/color screen/4 gb drive and stainless steel phone isnt?
i like this phone thwe 4gb memory is something new but this phone is a touch too expensive the i-mate JasJar which is by far the most advanced cell if you consider the features actually comes in cheaper! the p990 when it will be launched will come in cheaper than this phone and its price will soon fall to half the price of the nokia n91.........although i can afford a n91 with ease but why over-spend when i can get better phones at lower prices? i mean c'mon guys the overall advantages and the biz features of JasJar/p990 are far better than the ones offered by n91....no offense to any of the fans out there
MPEG4???Does it plays it???It supports 3G right?Then why there is no 2-nd camera it front??Ill just wait for perfet phone winh WLAN 3.5 jacket 3mp 3G 320X240 256k or more colors bluetooth and with card slot:D
hi everyone. The N91 is awsome mobile phone to use. I am currently using one and have another two in my hand for sale, its brand new sealed in a box. If any interests pls email me. Jalen
There is a guy In the Uk who is selling the Nokia N series at low rates plus International shipping.. seems like the best place. Payment is only Paypal and Stormpay. But their Minimum Order is 10 Pieces. Thats Kinda Hard for everyone. There is also a seller In USA near New York who is selling N91 @ 90$ per unit. but the order quantity is minimum 20 Pieces. But friends beware of scams from Africa. I am going to buy N91 on Dec. The phone that has the capacity to store over 3000 Songs. Cool!........
I should add, contrary to my last post, that 18 month contracts do work out cheaper for some people. But generally they're only worth it if you think the minutes and texts you get as part of the agreement are worth sticking with for 18 months, and that you won't want to change your handset for quite some time =)
2 year contracts may well be very popular in the states. But not over here in the UK/EU.
18+ month contracts aren't what they're made out to be, if anyone offers you anything more than a 12 month contract, and you can afford a 12 month, don't take it. An equivelant example would be taking a loan out for 7 years instead of 5. You think you're getting it cheaper because you pay less at each interval, but overall you pay a lot more.
The cheapest way to get an expensive handset is to pay out initially. The higher the tariff you go for, the more you'll be paying overall. Work out the line rental multiplied by the number of months then add the rice you're paying for the handset, i can almost garauntee it's cheaper to go for a £20-30 a month contract and pay £200+ for the handset. Than pay £50-75 a month, (or £20-30 over an 18 month period) and get the handset free.
bottom line is: if you're not going to use the minutes and text allowance of the tariff, dont go for it just to get the handset cheaper. 18 month contracts play on consumers lust for small payments, just like all the adverts for companies offering to settle all your debts in one loan. it'll work out more costly in the long run.
I cant vouch for other EU countries and countries outside the EU. But until dealers like carphone warhouse have a handset available, it's not available. They have the monopoly, if they want a handset before anyone else, they'll get it. Because they will pay extra to get things exclusive.
if you see a handset for sale elsewhere, chances are it'll be a foreign handset and won't comply with your country's specifications. You also wont have any manufacturers warranty, because if your phone is a foreign spec handset, your native branch of manufacturer wont touch it with a barge pole.
However the retailer is bound by UK law to help with warranty issues while the warranty lasts. But you'll probably find retailers of these foreign handsets will be less than helpful, or they have no idea of the implications of selling foreign handsets.
Hi yall, Just wanted to try and find out, is this phone available in the UK yet? I have searched the providers and havnt seen it yet. Vodafone said it should be out round December. There is a guy on e bay that tried to sell me one for £140.00 I said no because I think thats a scam, too cheap for a new phone.
Let me know.
IT seems pretty good! it has good deatures, good looks, and good camera. I hope its not too expensive when it comes out in USA.
Mann... heard that In canada.. N91's selling at $1800 CA . . . diaMMmm.. that's... frigging much....
sweden has released the n90 the n91 and the n70 the price for the n91 is 7000skr its about 990-1000 usdollars
yeah 18 month contracts wont cautch on [\sarcasm]
they alreayd do 2 year contracts in the US, most people have 'em
search for UNIONETFORCE on ebay and pliis tell me what u think...Go to advansed search and enter the name in search for user...
Its locaded in France....
See they are out on ebay now to 10 pounds??
Is it a scam or is it worth trying??
The N91 is most definately NOT out in the UK yet. In all honesty dont expect any online sale through ebay to be genuine until you have seen it for sale through a genuine mobile dealer.
Chances are that even if the seller has a genuine unit, it's a pre-production model and wont contain all the software that would normally be bundled, or even the accessories you'd expect. So steer clear until the dealers have them for sale with contracts.
18 month contracts. I personally dont think they'll catch on. The only people that benefit from 18 month contracts are the people that actually use their phone a helluva lot and are unlikely to want to change their phone for the next couple of years.
People like me and others on this discussion, will want to change their handset every 9-12 months. Having to wait 18 months to update my gadgetry would be agonizing lol.
The W800i is a was dated before it was released. it's identical in specification to the K750i. It's already dead, the W800i is a generation behind the phones on the horizon. Comparison to anything from Sony Ericsson less than the P950 is pointless.
I must admit the fact that the N91 has stainless steel case components means very little to me. it just makes it heavier and more expensive without actually offering much of a statement in design. The same effect could be gained from using good quality durable plastic, instead of the usual flimsy removable casing Nokia throw on their lesser handsets.
The Samsung I300. I'm still undecided. As a rule i generally hate all that is Samsung. They capitalize on fashion trends and gimmicks and are usually way way behind in technology stakes.
How long did it take Samsung to add Bluetooth to their handsets as standard? nokia has had a bluetooth phone available since before the turn of the century and it's still as good now as it always was. Samsung still lead the way with screen quality, but at the expense of battery life, as usual. not a huge selling point.
The I300 is however a bit more future proof than the N91, memory prices have taken a nose dive recently, how long they stay low is another matter. So the I300's card slot extends it's 3gb internal memory quite inexpensively. I'm still not keen tho.
