Nokia N81 gone global

Nokia has announced that the both the regular (microSD) and 8GB versions of its N81 gaming phone should now be available "globally." While this term is vague, it would seem to include North America; the phones were already available in Europe, and are known to be FCC-approved in quad-band GSM form, with single-band WCDMA. The primary attraction of the N81 is the yet-to-be-launched N-Gage gaming service, but the phones should already include demos of FIFA 07, Space Impact Light and Asphalt 3: Street Rules, which will be unlockable as soon as N-Gage is opened to the public.

The phone also has a strong music focus, with access to the Nokia Music Store and a standardized 3.5mm headphone jack, rather than a smaller mobile one. The N81 is currently priced at 360 ($513) for the unlocked microSD edition, or 430 ($613) for the 8GB edition.
