Hype or not: Nokia N91?
Soon, very soon Nokia releases a new phone in the N-series. The N91.
Looking at it’s features I can only say I am amazed. And, not taking the price into account, it looks like it’s going to beat the iPod as a gadget. The new Nokia N91 has it all, built in one!!
Some of it’s features:
- 4Gb hard disc, the same as the iPod Nano, for up to 3000 songs in stereo

- Download using USB, WiFi
- Battery lasts for 12h before recharging
- 2 megapixel camera
- a whole bunch of smartphone applications and functions
Target price: 649€.
But talking about buzz. In Belgium, the Antwerp based agency These Days has started creating word around the new phone. 4 People in Belgium got a N91 for testing and writing about it on their blog. This seemed to be a perfect solution. Instead of spending a huge budget on marketing, the bloggers are doing all the promotion in exchange for a N91.
One person got the N91 for auctioning on eBay. Also a success as people started bidding from all over the world. The Nokia N91 got sold for 812 Euros.
