If you’ve been reading my blog you’ll know that I absolutely LOVE Mobile Review. They post some of the most lengthy, content rich reviews I’ve seen on the net. Enough ass kissing, let’s share some snippets:
So the goal set for the N93â€™s successor was not introducing some new features or software upgrade up to Feature Pack 1 â€“ Nokia N93i presents us only with modifications that have something to do with its looks, specifically now we have something to choose from â€“ grey or brick red trims.
Music player did not get any updates.
This very article is rather an introductory edition of the review on the N93i, but we can draw some conclusions right now â€“ the model is in fact a marginally shape-changed Nokia N93, functionality is not big news either, the differences are mostly minor, the design has been changed a bit (they made the shell a tad thinner, which you simply might miss), stereo-sound recording has been moved off the handset. The sales package has finally gotten to be in keeping with the phoneâ€™s concept; we especially like the new bundled memory card about it. Other differences between Nokia N93i and its predecessor are non-existent â€“ as you see itâ€™s nothing more but a skin-deep update to the original offering.
Nokia N93i is scheduled to being shipping in the end of February at a price of 600 Euro (tax-free price). On the Russian market, though, its price might rocket up to 850 Euro, meaning that the N93i flies out of the mass market in an eye-blink, ending up in a category of device aiming at moderate sales even their domains. If you already own a Nokia N93, then going for the N93 doesnâ€™t make any sense â€“ you wonâ€™t get wholly new experience, everything will feel just the same way it did. Newcomers, on the other hand, should take a closer look at this handset, in case they are looking for what Nokia N93 delivers functionality-wise and were about to buy it. But for vast majority of consumers Nokia N93i as an option on their short-lists is not very interesting, since the market has Nokia N73 to offer, which shows off better still-image quality and worse video recording in a much more portable casing armed with stereo-speakers and some other fetching attractions.
