Espoo, Finland – Mobile entertainment just got more fun with the Nokia N81 and Nokia N81 8GB multimedia computers now available globally. Designed for the best in music and gaming, these devices come with dedicated music and game keys and are loaded with memory so you can store more and play more.

And, with their integrated Nokia Music Players, creating playlists and managing music collections on the move is a breeze.
