Nokia Nseries 2006

Intro N73 N93 Flickr Comments  26

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.
