#1 : Ten Trends Nokia Spotted and Failed to Cash in On

Big storage

In 2005, at a time when the storage on most handsets was measured in megabytes (MB), Nokia announced the N91, with a hard drive (yes!) of 4 GB (an 8 GB version came later). No, it was not the first smartphone to feature a hard drive with a capacity that ran into gigabytes (that was perhaps the SGH-i300 from a Korean company that was trying to make its presence felt in the smartphone market – it was called Samsung), but it was easily the most famous. Its launch was delayed by almost a year and it was dogged by software issues, but many loved its metallic design and fantastic audio quality. It was designed innovatively too – the front has dedicated music controls, which slid back to reveal an alphanumeric keypad. It was supposed to give the iPod a run for its money, but its expensive price tag and buggy software stopped it from becoming a runaway hit. Nokia did have 8 GB versions of some of its later devices – the N95 and N81, most notably – but big storage was not a staple version of its devices for a while.
