Masamune is on a distinguished road
Now taking all extremely cynical bets about the release date of the N91. The problem is that Nokia is now releasing two specifically music-centric smartphones in a very short space of time and one of them will fall flat. People will either wait a bit longer for the more expensive large scale one or decided that it's way over priced (remember, Joe Public very rarely spends 500 on a phone and the business community is more likely to go for the P990 & 9300i). My guess is that the 3250 will really go a long way and the N91 will fall flat. After all, now it's also got the Samsung SGH-i300 to compete with. Mind you, Samsung don't win prizes for release dates either.....

I'm not sure I agree. I think they are aimed at different types of people. I think the N91 is as much as music device as a phone where as the 3250 is a music device as well as a phone.

I do think that the N91 could do with a bump though it specs. However it still beats out the 3250 with out of the box memory and WiFi. Plus it arguable looks nicer...

I do think the 3250 is going to do well though, better than the 3230 for sure. Its an attractive price point / feature set.
