Now 3.3 mm thinner, 10 mm shorter and a tad bit lighter than the original, the N93i still retains more or less the same features we’ve all grown to love. It’s still a beast of a cell phone, equipped with a 3.2 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics, a double hinge for camera and landscape modes, WLAN/wi-fi, and stereo speakers.

Unfortunately, the N93i, like the N93, is still tri-band GSM 900/1800/1900 with WCDMA 2100. This I do not understand. Unless Nokia has determined the US 850 market just isn’t interested in this phone?

The N93i will be shipping this quarter and comes with a hefty price tag of 600 Euros (around $775 US dollars).
