Nokia \"iPod killer\"
Nokia, the world's largest mobile phone manufacturer, plans to launch an "" and "digital camera alternative" this summer. According to Nokia's vice president, Asia Pacific, Mauro Montanaro, the N90 would be the first to the market by July, followed by both the N70 and N91 before the year-end. The N91 is the most feature-rich model, with an integrated 4GB hard disk and play music for 12.5 hours at a stretch. It also boasts of an MP3 and ACC playback, in addition to remote controlled earphones and an FM tuner. Other features include shock proof hard disk, a 2 mega pixel camera, Web browser and integrated Wi-Fi. The N91, however, is not likely to compete directly with any iPod model. It offers the same storage as iPod mini, but will costs nearly $700.
