Nokia N93 review | Introduction

Published on: Friday, January 5th 2007                   Written by: Nic Rossmüller - Photography by: Mark Peters

S ince time and day people make phone calls with Nokia, number one in mobile phones. Nokia as we know it today exists since 1967 and in this year they merged with Finnish Rubberworks and Finnish Cable Works. In 1981 the first mobile telephone networks, NMT, arose in the Scandinavian countries. Nokia produced at that time car phones for this network. It would take until 1987 before Nokia started to produce the first real portable mobile phone. Meanwhile, Nokia has grown to be one of the biggest mobile telephone producers in the world, with their own production in most of countries. Nowadays, Nokia's head office is located in Espoo, Finland. Nokia is well known for its production of durable, high-quality telephones and as such they could not resist releasing another top product on the market, at least: that's what Nokia said about the Nokia N93. We were able to test the device for some time and we will discuss the phone's functions in the following review.

The Nokia N93 is a true smart phone, whatever you can come up with, whether it's a WLAN internet connection, MP3 player, an agenda or camera, the Nokia N93 has it, better even: the device has two cameras. You can't overlook the first camera; it's easy to see that the lens comes from Carl Zeiss and that the camera has 3.2 Megapixels with 3x optical zoom. It's harder when it comes to the second camera for it is mounted just above the large screen. Handy if you just want to check your hair but I don't think this is what Nokia intended. It is possible however, to have an enjoyable video conversation with it. This might not be what you would do with the telephone in the first place, but a second camera is surely an option we will encounter more with mobile phones in the future.

The Nokia N93 is not a phone for the mass public, it is, however, a device with a lot of pleasant functions and everything has been provided standard. In the Nokia N93's packaging you will find a flash memory card, a wrist strap, cables for connecting it to USB or TV and a case. If we look at the weight of 188 grams and the size of 118 x 55.5 x 28 mm, it is one of the largest mobile phones on the market at the moment. Thus it's not easy to bring it along in your trouser's pockets or a blouse's breast pocket. This, I believe, is one of the Nokia N93's biggest disadvantages. Despite all the functions the device has, it's inconvenient always having to bring the phone in a special case or in a jacket with large pockets.
