Try upgrading the software, there is a new V15 that was released a couple of days ago.

In that price range even the ROKR betters the N91 8gb albeit minus the memory and wi-fi which is basically useless on that small 176X220 screen.
And how? The last I knew N91 (all models) have 3.5 mm plug on the body itself while none of the SE's have it yet. Besides N91 features a really powerful amplifier and sounds as good as the ipod and comes with a camera and wifi on board which the SE lack inspite of being considerably expensive.

ROKR is no way near, heck it doesnt even support any customization on music of any sort, there are no equilizers even!

Whats the logical upgrade from the Nokia E65 ? Any phone with all features of the E65 + in built GPS !

Seen the N82, N81 8GB and the 6110 navigator.

N82 - buttons too small
6110 - flimsy build
N81 - not too sure.

any suggestions ?

ps - if anyone can help me get the GPS working on the E65 - would be great.

N82 - buttons too small
N series phones are primarily not intended for business usage (unlike E series) so small buttons isn't much of a problem on N82. I bought one this week and it works great!

I bought N82 primarily for its great camera (with xenon flash), video and GPS capabilities. Yes, I browse and also check my e-mails with that but those are secondary functions.

Nokia is the world's biggest and most experienced manufacturer of cell phones. They have earned nearly 40% of the world market.

The stainless steel bodied Nokia N91 was the first Nokia with a spinning mechanical 4 GB hard disk drive.

We can strongly suspect, that dropping the phone accidentally can destroy the spinning hard disk drive.
The model you are considering has an 8 GB hard disk drive -- even bigger and more fragile. This is not quite the same thing, as a N95 with 8 GB of flash memory.

The N91 was meant to be a music recorder/player. So it has microphone/analog audio in, which is good for people who need it. I would certainly love to have it.

Being an older phone, the N91 has only 30 MB of internal RAM.
Unless budget is a crunch (and God knows it is for all of us), I would really recommend you go for one of the latest models. Unlike the car industry, the mobile phone industry is taking gigantic strides in designing new phones.

Its cost 700 $ overseas that about 32k ,very expensive ,but one solid PDA.
I bought one on Dec 5th from clove.co.uk

Cost me 35000/- including 6000/- duty.

1 month of use & its really great smartphone.
I use excel very often keeping track of daily spending & mileage etc... so this is useful.
I have used the GPS & it shows the speed & direction of travel too.

A couple of points:

I dont know about 4GB specifically, but Samsung and not Nokia brought out the world's first mobile phone with a mechanical hard disk drive.

And Motorola is the most "experienced" manufacturer, having made the earliest mobile phones.
