Nokia Releases N81 And Nokia N81 8GB
Nokia likes to call them “multimedia computers”, but we'll just call them for what they are: the N81 and Nokia N81 8GB. Both models have been released globally and represent one more step in Nokia's attempt to expand its business in the entertainment business.

The two models have a special design, featuring both music and game keys and are the first to include Nokia's 3D Multimedia Menu.
Users are expected to visit and download content from the Nokia Music Store, which has been unveiled in late August. The service offers files in 192Kbps audio in Windows Media Audio (WMA) format.
Also, the devices feature a preview of the N-Gage games service, with playable demos of EA Sport, FIFA 07, Asphalt 3: Street Rules and Space Impact Light. The N-Gage service will be launched later this year and will allow users to try all the featured titles for free, so they could decided which ones they want to buy.
The N81 (2GB microSD) retails for Euro 360 and N81 8GB (based on on-board flash memory) has a price tag of Euro 430.
