"The Nokia N91, the music focused phone with a hard disk, and the E70, the enterprise focused phone with a gulwing form factor, have been approved by the FCC. The documents available
include internal pictures (where the N91's hard disk
is visible) and the user manuals.
The N91 user manual
reveals the N91 will innclude UPnP support and includes details on the Music Shop application which will allow users to download music over the air to their phones and the PC Music Sync (which uses Windows Media Player 11). Read on for more.
Highlights revealed from the manual about the music functionality of the phone include:
Music Shop allowing purchase and download over the air from a client application.
PC Sync of music files via Windows Media Player 11 (via USB Cable), including Janus DRM protected WMA files.
View as a external hard disk and transfer files (via USB, Bluetooth or WiFi/WLAN).
Creation and editing of equaliser presets.
Creation and editing of playlists via the Music application on the phone.
Edit details of music file (ID3 tags editing) via the Music application on the phone.
Support for Album Art (including choosing your own image from the Phone's Gallery application).
Set as song as the ringtone of the phone.
The Music Shop application is a generic 'service type' application and has settings that can be specified by the user (although these can be locked by an operator). This service/settings based architecture is similar to that used in SMS / MMS services. In most instances the user will use the default settings provided by an operator. However the Music Shop application is service agnostic, meaning it can be connected to any service which supports it. The music shop allows you to search for and download music to your N91 directly from the phone.
Other new functionality of note includes:
UPnP support which allows for the sharing of files (the extent of this functionality is not clear as it looks like a later addition to the manual [see indexes]). Universl Plug and Play will almost certainly facillitate the sharing of playlists and music talked about by Nokia at the phones launch. It should also allow you to play music from your N91 to your home WiFi provided it is
UPnP compatiable (or has a UPnP adaptor).Flash Player
allow playing of Flash Lite files which may include simple animation or videos or full fledged mobile applications " full article
