Nokia Gets an Upgrade
By Georgia Flight

(Business 2.0) – Sleek design, simple user interfaces, and music-playing phones. Nope, not Apple or Motorola. Try Nokia. In an effort to compete against commodity handsets flowing out of Asia and establish its phones as lifestyle accessories, this fall the Finnish giant is remaking itself into a multimedia powerhouse, marrying phones with high-end gadgets like video recorders. The earliest entrant will likely be the N90 videophone. Next up: the N91, which will hold 3,000 songs and be the first in a line of new hard-drive-based handsets.
