Excerpt: Nokias engagement i at hjælpe mennesker forbinder netop har nået et andet niveau af ekspertise med lanceringen af dedikerede Nokia N81 mobiltelefon.

Den video deler støtte WCDMA-netværkstjenester og videoopkald indslag har skabt bølger i den integrerede elektronik marked, som Nokia henvender sig til.
Excerpt: The new member of Nokia's Nseries, Nokia N81 8GB, is obviously a multimedia-oriented device. We all have great expectations from Nokia high-end line-up, and the Nseries has always offered a wide range of devices that can fulfill even the most fastidious user needs. Nokia N81 targets youngsters looking for a device that can offer them many hours of gaming and music, but also to those that loved the N95, but didn't have the money to acquire one.
Pros: One of the best multimedia terminals, Nokia N81 8GB embeds the fastest and most stable operating system. There are two main targets that this phone will fully satisfy: Symbian freaks and music lovers. Internet fans will also love this handset, as it offers quite a good experience thanks to the very good display and UMTS connectivity. The high storage capacity (8GB), Wi-Fi support, excellent display, touch sensitive Navi wheel and 3G technologies are among the positive...
Cons: The phone is too heavy and bulky to fit in a small pocket, which will certainly make its desirability lower. A better camera and a much easier to use keypad would've made a difference.
Conclusion: Web browser, front camera for video calling, Nokia Maps, Wi-Fi and mobile e-mail are just a few of the additional applications and features. But these are fairly standard S60 fare, with even the Wi-Fi increasingly deployed on higher end mobiles, and not in themselves enough to draw us to this particular phone.
Comparative review: Sony Ericsson W960i vs Nokia N81 8Gb
11 April 2008
Excerpt: It has been almost a year since the last time we put two music-minded handsets face to face – as you probably remember, back then these were the SE W880i and Samsung F300. The former held the upper hand, although the F300 was more than a passable performer on the music front. This time around we are introducing a couple of changes to our routine procedures for comparative reviews.
Excerpt: I purchased the Nokia N81 unlocked version about one-year ago. It is in my opinion in the category of a world-wide smartphone without a QWERTY keypad. It has Symbian 9.2 OS built in and a user friendly to the max menu. The N81 is a quad-band phone with 3G connectivity which opens up a vast range of applications and exceptional connectivity. In addition to Bluetooth 2.0 it has 802.11b/g connectivity.
Summary: It has been quite some time since Nokia released its first N-Gage mobile phone. Sad to say, the N-Gage platform as a whole wasn't all that successful at the point of time due to its gauche design and lack of industry support with quality killer applications and gaming titles. Today, Nokia is back in full force with the new Nokia N81 8GB, which carries a revamped N-Gage solution; this time, as a service that complements the S60 platform.
Summary: The N81's fancy multimedia credentials, excellent connectivity options and well-designed search function will have you rushing out to buy one, but its tacky, plastic front slider, poor excuse for a camera and noticeable lack of a memory expansion slot could soon destroy your lust.
