The cell phone that may finally replace your laptop
The Nokia 9300 doesn't just blur the line between smart phone and laptop. It erases it. Taller but slimmer than the new Treo 650, this light, 5.9-ounce handset opens up lengthwise to reveal a plump, thumb-friendly keyboard and a gorgeous color screen that, with more than 65,000 hues, displays everything from a calendar and contact list to full webpages and spreadsheets in crisp detail. With its built-in BlackBerry e-mail client, your in box will always be up-to-date. The 9300 won't choke on e-mail attachments, thanks to its high-speed EDGE connection -- something the BlackBerry 7100t doesn't support.
Other perks include a loud speakerphone (which turns on automatically when you flip it open to type), Bluetooth, an MP3 player, and a very generous 80MB of memory (there's a multimedia card, or MMC, slot if you want to expand it). At presstime, Nokia had not set a firm price for the 9300, saying it would be between $500 and $1,000.
