1:11 /

Look out, iPhone. Nokia's latest handheld Internet access device browses the Web, runs Flash and has GPS. It'll sell for $479 when it comes out in November.

It's really thin, it's bigger than an iPhone, and it doesn't have a cellular modum in it. You access the Web through Wi-Fi or via a Bluetooth link in our own cell modem. Nokia says that they know how to build cell phones and they might build one into a future device, or a module for this one later. But right now this is a Web access device.
