Nokia Nseries 2006
On-the-scene report from the Nokia Open Studio event in Berlin. Hands-on with the new Nokia Nseries N73 and N93.

It was almost exactly one year ago that Nokia first unveiled its Nseries line of flagship phones. Since then, the lineup has received one refresh, and seen the launch of the spin-off Eseries business devices. Now, on its one-year anniversary, the Nseries family is growing once again.
One of the most common complaints about the first Nseries phones was size. The N90 and N91 were simply huge phones by any standard, and the N71 and N92 continued that trend. The N70 and N80 aren't quite as huge, although no one would really call them small, either.
Nokia has started to listen to those complaints - sort of. The new N73 - announced today - finally brings the Nseries down to an actual pocketable size. It even does so while adding quite a bit to the features of the N70 it replaces. The N93, however, goes in the opposite direction with regard to size. The N93 is the largest Nseries phone to date; it's larger than both the N90 and N92. It's hard to imagine the N93 fitting comfortably into any but the very largest pockets.
I'm not going to talk much about the N72. It's only intended for Asia, and it's really just a re-styled N70 anyway. The display is low-resolution, the memory card is the old RS-MMC type, and even the OS is the older Series 60 2.8, not the new S60 3rd Edition.
MI:3 has the N92!
Pictures show the N93 is slightly bigger, so N93 is still ok and usable in my book! And if Tom Cruise uses it, then it's good for me too!
I guess if you are planning to use it as a face warmer in the winter time.
The phone is huge! It's larger than some Japanese car engines!
N73 agains K800
I really need a good and full comparision between the Nokia N73 and SE K800 (and maybe also N80).
If anyone knows were I can find a go review please let me know. If not, people here at phonescoop should do one.
I don't know wich one is better at this point, I am especially interested about the camera capabilities for both phones.
Does the Carl Zeiss lens do better job than the K800 ?
What type of camera is in N73? CCD or CMOS ?
Are the picture anywhere close to a 3.2 regular Canon (or any) digital camera when we talk about quality and crispness ?
Seriously, those things look like tanks. Nokia, please take a hint from Sanyo, whom you're now in bed with, on how to reduce handset thickness even with a 2.4" LCD and a decent camera. You know, because the Japanese manufacturers have been using 2.4" LCDs for something like two years now, and even with 2MP cams, are still super thin. Sheesh.
what's amazing is when you consider that this has all the same technology and features as the sanyo xacti c5/c6 AND a hi...
