Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:40 CET under 01 - General News

Not many mobile phones have been touted as "iPod killers", maybe the first one was be the HTC Magician (i-mate JAM, Xda mini) which has a similar shape but misses the hard disk, the other one might be the Samsung SGH-i300 which is a Windows Mobile Smartphone and includes a 3 GB HDD.

However, today's announced Nokia N91 combines a mobile phone with a 4-gigabyte hard disk to create a portable music player with room for up to 3000 songs and supports MP3, M4A, AAC and WMA.
