Nokia held an event in London this week to launch several new handsets and services. The new handsets are the N81, N95 8GB, 5610 XpressMusic and 5310 XpressMusic. We had the opportunity to get some hands on time with these phones while attending the event. All of them were pre-production models, and Nokia representatives assured us that any kinks we might encounter should be worked out by the time the phones are released.
Among the services were Nokia's rebranded Ovi Internet Services division, as well as the new N-Gage gaming platform and Nokia Music store. We also have a video walkthrough of the Music Store.
For now, let's dig into the phones.

Can't Someone Make a Top-End Phone For The US Market First ? ? ?
The fact that NOKIA is introducing the 8GB phone in Europe first is offensive to me. What do we American folks, who have money to burn, get all the good technology last? I wrote NOKIA an email and asked them to bring the 8GB version here to America so that we can have it too. I am aware that some of the WCDMA bands in Europe don't work over here and vice versa, but some of us travel into some seriously out-of-the-way places and like being prepared.
All the cell phone makers are trumpeting the fact that some of their phones are Quad-Band GSM and that is very nice and helpful, but what about Quad-Band WCDMA (850, 1700, 1900, 2100) too!? That would be really groovy to those of us that trav...
