Nokia N91 is kind of bulky, plays good tunes


Reading all the juicy specs and features on a computer monitor is one thing, but to actually have the gadget in your hands to fiddle with is something different altogether. We’ve been itching to know how good the Nokia N91 really is, and the editors over at Gizmodo managed to snatch a unit and do up a quick review.

The first thing that you’ll notice about “the Music One” is that it isn’t the smallest phone on the market; in fact, it’s about the same size as a standard 4G iPod and has comparable tune-playing ability to boot. There’s four gigabytes of storage on board, which can be accessed not unlike an external disk drive. The audio is “listenable” while the N91 is docked, which isn’t a bad thing. It’s a good thing.

The keypad is a little small and might take some time getting used to, but the user interface is quite good and the dedicated Symbian menu key is a definite plus. The pictures from the integrated 2 megapixel camera are better than those taken with the N90, though the Gizmodians are having trouble with iSync.

Packaged in with the juicy handset are a stand, charger, software, and an audio out cable.
