One attractive thing about the Nokia N81 is that it is cheaper than the N95. That can be the fact as the Nokia N81 does not have that many features as the N95 has. Many would agree though that this one makes a nice music phone. This one as they say is mainly 8GB music and gaming geared unit. A certain reviewer noted that the N81 is glossy but cheap-looking.

One attractive thing about the Nokia N81 is that it is cheaper than the N95. That can be the fact as the Nokia N81 does not have that many features as the N95 has. Many would agree though that this one makes a nice music phone. This one as they say is mainly 8GB music and gaming geared unit. A certain reviewer noted that the N81 is glossy but cheap-looking. The N81 is said to be one of the first mobiles to support Nokia's Music Store over-the-air download service. It is also one the first geared up to handle Nokia’s revamped N-Gage mobile gaming platform, with a mix of dedicated keys and front-panel buttons that double up as console-style controls, according to reghardware.co.uk. Its operating system is that of Symbian 9.2 with Nokia's own S60 3.1 user interface. The outlook of the phone is somehow of a slick design but some would agree that the plastic casing gives the N81 a cheap feel. Others would also agree that the controls are cluttered and definitely not as ergonomic as they could be the music player performance is excellent. Added in this phone is the 802.11b/g Wi-Fido that users have the option of selecting this cost-effective and convenient route for downloading and surfing. Many more features are included in this one. But what’s important is that they have all been well appreciated and loved by its users.
