Nokia just announced three more phones in their Nseries line.

The N80 seems to be the best out of the three since it has a 3mp camera and a whole lot of other features.

Nokia N80
Advanced Series 60 slider with a 3mp camera.

Nokia N71
Meant to be a compact Symbian clamshell that packs all the Nseries goodies.

Nokia 92
The N92 is the wierdest looking nokia ive seen up until now.

I will start removing these URL drop posts, they are against the forum usage guidelines.

Got one last night a few minutes after the announcement, and now this one. It seems like a lot of spam is going on these days.

But at least here we can discuss what we think about these new wonders.. :)

A poll would be interesting about how many people think to use DVB-H service in the future if its arrives to NZ: I definitely will!

Yes, you can discuss all you want... The URL drop is when people start posting on the forums links to their own pages - so they don't contribute anything to the forum really, just want links. This is pretty similar to splog (blog spam).

I am keeping the threads, but removing the links.

mmmmm i like N80, it could be replacing my quirky Imate Smartphone2, N71 looks good too. N92, complete weirdness and like what Mahuhu said, if NZ start broadcasting using DVB-t then we might see DVB-H broadcast, but lately TVNZ isn't doing too well....

for goodness sake, our "EPG" is teletext! how ancient we are? Where's EPG OTA? grrrrr....

make me feel like setting up an EPG Service for NZ's broadcast! muahahahahhaa

DVB itself would be nice in NZ but I can't see that happening for some time.

i really like the n91 is that the one that has a mp3 player on it with 5 gig? should be competitive with the ipod

it's already won the battle in terms of phone+music. Motorola's ROKR is a failure, and it doesn't play WMA. N91's delay would most probably due to getting license to play WMA, because N71, N80, and N92 are capable of playing WMA. so if that's the case, then N91 with 4GB and ability to play MP3, AAC and WMA.

You forget the SonyEricsson W800 (and soon to be released W900) I know for a fact that the W800 has exceeded all expectaions in NZ. Granted it doesn't have a hard drive, but it certainly beats the pants off the current ROKR phone.

true. but W800/W900 will it plays WMA? Am not too sure about it though. All my music are in WMA because I use MCE at home. so rather than rerip into different format and wasting spaces, i'd hope for WMA.
