Get out the wallet. Nokia started offering the N91 to the U.S. market, and it’s selling for $599.

Optimized for mobile music consumption, the Nokia N91 comes with a 4 GB hard drive, 3.5 mm stereo headset jack, WLAN support, dedicated music keys and PC synchronization with Windows Media Player.

A new feature of the Nokia N91 is the possibility to share playlists with friends by text message or Bluetooth. The stainless steel-encased Nokia N91 also comes preloaded with exclusive content from the series of Live8 concerts that were held in July 2005.

David Watkins, director, Multimedia Computers for Nokia North America, says the Nokia N91 is “ready to rock” the U.S. audience. It is the second Nokia Nseries flagship device to hit the United States.

The device already has received attention. The February 2006 issue of Vibe magazine cites it as "fully functional, easy to handle – everything you need is here" and Popular Science included the device in its 2005 Best of What's New annual round-up.

The Nokia N91 supports a range of digital music formats, including MP3, M4A, WMA, AAC, AAC+ and eAAC+. The device includes GSM/EDGE, WLAN, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, as well as W-CDMA for international roaming.

The Nokia N91 initially will be available exclusively online at
