Nokia has announced the next version of their 9000 Communicator series, the model 9500. New features include additional GSM frequencies, an integrated camera, integrated music player (supports MP3, AAC, WAV, MIDI, and Real Audio), MMS support, Bluetooth (the lack thereof was my biggest complaint of the prior versions), GPRS support, EGPRS (not that many providers support it yet, but with 236.8 kbps we can dream), 80 MB RAM (up from 16 MB), 64K colors (up from 4K). Oh, and it weights just a bit less too. Availability Q4 2004. Details at http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,,54106,00.html.
