I’ve recently lost my phone (more like stolen ) so I’m in search of new phones, again.  Don’t get me wrong, I loved my Nokia 6233 but it won’t hurt to find out the latest in Nokia‘s artillery.

Nokia 5310
A Series 40 GSM (non 3G) XpressMusic phone that is uniquely slim (for Nokia) at only 9.9mm (103.8 x 44.7 x 9.9 mm).  It is also quite lightweight at 70.2g.  It has a microSD card slot but it’s internal memory is quite big for Nokia standard: 30MB.

It is a very pretty phone with very nice features, too bad that it is not 3G and it has no infrared (it has Bluetooth though).

Nokia 5610
Another Series 40 XpressMusic phone but this one is a slider and has 3G (384kbps).  What’s more interesting with this model is that it features a 3.15 MP autofocus camera (2048×1536 pixels) with flash, and since it has 3G it also has a secondary QVGA videocall camera.  It also has a microSD card slot on top of the built-in 20 MB internal memory.

A unique feature on this phone is the Music Slider that according to Nokia, "…takes you to your playlist with a single touch and curtain-like slide of the user interface."

Nokia N81
A Symbian OS 9.2, Series 60 v3.1 UI smart phone that has 3G (384kbps), Wi-Fi 802.11b/g with UPnP, and 2MP (1600×1200 pixels) camera.  This one is also a slider and uses Rotating gallery with Navi wheel.  This phone is more than just a music player: it is also a gaming device much like the previous N-Gage series.  It has dedicated game keys and according to Nokia, possibility to download N-Gage application (when available).

This is one of the nicest looking phone from Nokia, and it even includes a 2GB microSD card in its sales package according to Nokia.  Too bad though that Nokia only placed a 2MP camera in it.

But wait there’s more.  2GB not enough for ya?  Nokia also made N81 8GB version!  The only difference I could observe it that the 8GB version does NOT have any card slot, so it is fixed with 8GB of internal memory, color (black), possibly the accesories supplied with the package.

N81 8GB

Pretty neat.  A music player that is also a gaming console, with camera and radio too!  The only thing that I could think that this phone doesn’t have is a cheap price tag (that’d be asking too much, hehe).

Nokia N95 8GB
The N95 is arguably one of the best mobile phones out there, packed with so many features that it is more than just a smart phone–it’s almost like a computer.  With that in mind, Nokia decided to improve it by making an 8GB version.  It has EDGE (Class 32, 296 kbps; DTM Class 11, 177 kbps), 3G (HSDPA, 3.6mbps), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, UPnP technology, 5 MP (2592 x 1944 pixels) Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus camera with flash and a secondary CIF videocall camera, captures video in VGA resolution at 30fps, Built-in GPS navigation, Installed Maps application covering over 100 countries, 3.5 mm audio output jack, TV out, Stereo FM Radio, etc. among others.  With all that it doesn’t have an external card slot (like other Nokia phones with 8GB internal memory).

Windows Live Messenger is now available for download from Nokia Europe site.  This is for select Series 60 devices only.  Upcoming Series 60 devices may come preloaded with Windows Live Messenger.
