The Nokia N93 is the ultimate media smartphone

Summary:The Nokia N93 is the new ultimate multimedia smartphone running Symbian 9.1 and it is now starting to get into reviewer's hands. The device should be released in Europe soon and looks to have everything, including the kitchen sink, in a single device.



I have a Nokia N90 smartphone that I actually use as my mobile digital camera and camcorder. While I think the device serves as an extremely good multimedia device, the lack of vibration mode keeps me from using it as a daily phone. I have had my eye on the Nokia N93 since it was announced and now that All About Symbian has the device in their hands I am even more excited about the device.

The Nokia N93 is a flip phone similar to the N90 with a slightly different flip mode for landscape usage of applications other than just the camera and gallery. Specs of the N93 include a 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and even 3x optical zoom, GSM/EDGE/WCDMA, 802.11b/g WiFi, and Bluetooth 2.0 radios, standard miniSD storage card implementation and TV out functionality. All of this runs in Symbian OS 9.1 with the S60 3rd Edition software so you get all the great web browsing functionality and more. This baby has everything I could find in a S60 device, except for an integrated hard drive.

BTW, I understand from reading forums that this has vibration mode so it looks like I'll be on the hunt for this incredible device to replace the N90.
