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.
