New small Nokia 9300 Smartphone

Nokia introduces a smaller Communicator Smartphone called the Nokia 9300.

Is this the Treo killer that was rumored about? The Nokia 9300 measures 132x51x21mm and weighs 167g. The PalmOne Treo 600 measures 112x60x22mm and weighs 168g. So the Nokia 9300 is still 20 mm longer than a Treo 600, but its 10mm slimmer, the width is the same.
The Nokia has a bigger screen and a bigger keyboard to bring to the table. Nokia took out the camera to save space, the Treo 600 has one built-in.
The Nokia 9300 will be in stores early next year, until then PalmOne will have the Treo 650 on the market and maybe even another smartphone.

The Nokia 9300 has 80MB onboard expandable to 2GB with MMC cards. It is a tri-band phone supporting GSM/GPRS/EDGE.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
