Nokia Bundles Movie
In what it describes as a Hollywood first, Nokia said on Thursday that it will bundle a full-length movie with one of its premier cellphones. A new N93 edition will ship with a 512MB miniSD card that stores a complete copy of the action movie Mission: Impossible 3, optimized in resolution for the phone's smaller screen but running at the same 25 frames per second as in theaters. While the movie is copy-protected and can't play on a computer or another memory card, Nokia warns, the file can be transferred to a host PC for safekeeping to make room for more essential information. The MI:3 bundle won't raise the price of the N93 and is shipping now to most of Europe; a North American edition hasn't been announced.
