No Nokia N93i upgrade model until 2010?
According to a rumor posted by The Nokia Blog (the source is said to be reliable), there will be no phones from Nokia which use the form factor of the N93/N93i – an unusual, “fat” clamshell with a flip-and-swivel screen and camera – up to year 2010.
Not everyone liked the unusual design and look of the phone, but there are a lot of fans of N93 and it’s upgrade (the N93i) too. These people might be disapointed, knowing they have to wait two more years for the successor of their favorite phone to be released, especially when N93 will begin getting somewhat dated, having come out back in 2006.
Nokia N93 has an unusual, yet cool form factor:
Of course, the most notable feature of the N93 is it’s ability to create “DVD-like videos” with 30 FPS and encoded using MPEG4. Nokia will undoubtedly release phones with similar and improved capabilities, but I guess company’s new flagship camera phones will be in some more traditional form factors instead of succeeding the concept of N90 and N93. At least all the way till 2010 if the rumors are true, when a real successor of N93/N93i is supposed to come out.
