Default N91-5 or Ipod+Mob????

Guys I had collected 25k and decided to go buy myself the Nokia N91-5 (without wifi) after selling my Nokia 6600 and SE k550i (How much shud I sell it for???)

But my Dad says that 25k for a mob is a waste of money, he is telling me to instead go for a normal mobile, cam not necessary as I got a 6MP Digicam and an Ipod 4GB player....... now if I want I can go for the N91-5 but I wanna go for the best option available. What can I do now???

Bro,
go for a black Nano and a Nokia 6280.
It will easily fit in your budget.

i used the n 91 for a month and the experience was sad. the phone was slooow and it would continuosly hang if i had even the regular apps like the music player phonebook and call log open simultaneously...

BTW the phone memory was almost full and had only 100mb left ....

Googled this site....

http://www.newmobile.nl/eur/en/news....s_id=%ADbee5f9

Its a comparision test between Nokia N91, SE W950i and the Ipod G5 Video....Considering only the audio dept, on std headphones, the N91 scores a bit above Ipod....

Thumbs up

I-pod + mob is definetely a better way to go. In fact, try looking for other mp3 players besides I-pod, like Creative. (coz personally I think I-pods are totally overrated)

Is it necessary for you to go for nokia n91?

As you are going for n91-5 without wi-fi, I got another good option for you.

Samsung I300X. WIndows, stereo speakers, 4 gig hard-drive and looks good too. Check for availability in India.

You can also look for non-hard drive phones such as walkman series, ROKR E2, E680i, 3250 etc. they will be cheaper even with a 2-4 gig sd card.

I found 3250 HUGE but n91 aint small either... i find carrying two devices too cumbersome... All Nokia/S60 fone get slow as u install/uninstall applications. But the idea is convergence, in the N91 or the Samsung u would get a Good to decent Digicam + musicplayer + smartphone.

Over the last weekend I had the opportunity to actually get up close and personal with the N91.. and here's my PoV... IT SUCKS.
You'd be better off going for a seperate Phone and seperate MP3 player.

A friend of mine celebrated his birthday this saturday.

he got an ipod nano. He used a HP 6300 series pda phone. He just put up a question of what he should be doing with the ipod.

the decision is clear. Its not just n91 that makes a good music phone. I can still suggest you a different camera but music player is a strict nono.

But then its ultimately you who has to decide.
