Among the rumored models are the Nokia N81, an 8GB Nokia N95, and several XpressMusic phones. Got your attention, didn't we?

Just when you got your hands on the Nokia N95 and the Nokia N75, it seems there's something cooler on the horizon (as usual).

It's said to be replacing the music-centric Nokia N91 and comes equipped with a 3.5mm headphone jack.
