It's the phone of all cell phones. And you can't get it ... yet. Leave it to the federal government to be slow to respond. While not yet approved by the FCC, Nokia anticipates the N90 to be available soon in US markets. And the sooner the better,we can't stand the thought of Europeans with better gadgets. The retail price of this bad boy is around $1,000, which should drop in price once service providers begin carrying it.

Some think the hefty price of the phone is worth it,Nokia went all out with their new N90 "twister" phone. The four-axis design puts a twist (literally) on the classic clamshell of common flip phones. Part of Nokia's N series phones, the N90 is named as such because it rotates 90 degrees, making you an instant cinematographer. The main axis in this ingenious design gives you a no-slip steady grip, exactly what you need to capture great footage.

Flip out the screen to shoot; flip it open to chat. Nokia claims that you'll get crisp, detailed pictures delivered by the state-of-the-art optics in the 2 megapixel camera phone. Plus, there are loads of new features: auto-focus, macro, flash, up to 20x digital zoom and powerful software. The larger, high-definition display rotates to work in both landscape and portrait.

What's more, thanks to MPEG 4, the new compression standard for satellites and DVDs, you can fit tons of quality video in your phone. An integrated videophone lets you attend a meeting in New York from a beach in the south Pacific. Don't be the last to know, sign up for email alerts about the N90's U.S. release.
