4 Gig hard-disk, mp3/aac/wma, slide-out control panel: features that Nokia's new N91 boasts, apart from being a 'smartphone' [pic].

"share the songs" - not clear here.

I was just about to blog about how such a phone is just not ready to be used, since we do not have batteries that can last long enough. Every time I use my iPod, I end up draining the batteries - if it was my phone, then I'd feel stupid at not being able to make a call since I was listening to Britney.. I mean AC/DC.

Or until they figure out a way to have separate batteries for the phone and the music player so that you can never drain the phone by using the mp3 player. It's a microdrive, not a solid state memory, so I'm sure it uses up a sweet amount of power.

Good point Anil. Also talk about how fast the gadget heats up. Our "Chemical Brothers" have certainly been
found wanting.

To digress a bit, read that Hitachi is ready to launch fuelcell-based (methanol, if I remember right) laptops to let the juice stay longer. Silver lining.

I saw images and all of the new Nokia N series. Interesting phones but not sure how its going to pan out. Cant be too big but cant be too small since it needs to accomodate the 1Gig drive. Its a UMTS phone so will take a while to make it to the market. Lets wait and watch.

Info: Found N91's battery life to be "12.5 hours as a music player, though this way short of the 30 hours offered by the Sony Ericsson W800. It is 7 hours standby and 3-4 hours talk time" [from]

W800 is not harddisk-based btw.

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
