Nokia today announced upgrades to two previous high end models as well as a new clamshell style smartphone. All three phones have QVGA displays and a number of advanced features. They are all due out this quarter. Nokia also announced the second generation of its internet tablet, the N800, which will be available immediately.
- N93i: Updates the N93 camcorder-style smartphone with a shorter, slimmer form factor. The N93i still retains the same features as its big brother. It includes tri-band (900/1800/1900) GSM/EDGE, UMTS 2100, WiFi, Bluetooth, IR and 3.2 Megapixel autofocus camera with optical zoom. In addition, Nokia has updated the software and has replaced photo integration with Flickr for photo and video upload to Six Apart's VOX blogging platform. The N93i comes with a 1 GB MiniSD card.
- N76: Built on the N75 clamshell still expected on Cingular. The N76 features a slimmer design with a RAZR-like etched metal keypad. It adds UMTS 2100 to the quad-band GSM/EDGE, and maintains the external control keys, 2 Megapixel camera, Bluetooth and MicroSD card slot.
- 6131NFC: Nokia has added an NFC chip to the 6131 (sold on T-Mobile as the 6133). NFC chips provide contactless payments, ticketing and other abilities using terminals like MasterCard's PayPass. The 6131 is a slim, quad-band GSM/EDGE clamshell with a 1.3 Megapixel camera and Bluetooth.
