Nokia NSeries Mobile Challenge iPodNokia’s, the world’s top mobile phone manufacturer, announced new 4G mobile phones with built-in hard drives that will challenge Apple and Canon.

Nokia unveiled new premium phones on April 27, 2005 that included one with an MP3 music player, the N91 (L), that it said will outsell Apple’s iPod and a camera phone, the N90, that it forecast will surpass Canon, the world’s top digital camera maker.

The new music phone is a direct shot across Apple’s bow and challenges the space comfortably dominated by Apple’s iPod. Nokia thinks that if you already carry a mobile phone, what’s the sense in schlepping around an MP3 player in addition. Unless your a fan of the BatBelt look of multiple devices across your belt, they kind of have a point. Besides, although Apple has innovated on iPod hardware design, the software is so 2001.

In Cell phone adventures John D. Carmack II, co-founder of id Software and creator of such title as Wolfenstein 3D, Doom and Quake extolls the vitrues of developing software for mobile phones.

I’m not a cell phone guy. I resisted getting one at all for years, and even now I rarely carry it. To a first approximation, I don’t really like talking to most people, so I don?t go out of my way to enable people to call me. However, a little while ago I misplaced the old phone I usually take to Armadillo, and my wife picked up a more modern one for me. It had a nice color screen and a bunch of bad java game demos on it. The bad java games did it.
