N91 4Gb HDD upgradeable to 8Gb HDD?

Hi there,

Does anyone know if we can swap the 4Gb Hard drive in the N91 to the new 8Gb HDD? If so, how much is it expected to cost?

thanks

Jonno

Re: N91 4Gb HDD upgradeable to 8Gb HDD?

sry i was a bit vague...

there are some manufacturers (independant ones) that can put a 12gb hd in the N91...i was musing the idea myself but it would void the warranty so i decided against it...

i was speaking to one of the owners of the company and he said Nokia told him that it was possible and they would upgrade the N91 to 8gb for owners if they wanted to at a price (which he didnt disclose), thats why the owner decided to do 12gb hd's instead of 8gb's as nokia would put them in.

Are you people getting crazy...???

4GB >>> 8 / 12 GB will make the Phone N91 (with 220 MHz ARM-9 processor) more and more SLOWer !!!!!


Are you thinking about it?

Re: N91 4Gb HDD upgradeable to 8Gb HDD?

Thats my quetion too!
I strongly believe
with an
ARM Based 206.438 MHz Processor
an insultin 14 MB RAM will
be the funniest combination in an mobile phone.
there are some who always say processor rate is noting to do with it.
I dont think so.

Re: N91 4Gb HDD upgradeable to 8Gb HDD?

I think that the only way of upgrade, is N91 8Gb! Is technical possible, but they don´t go allow that... And 8gb is the actual limit. The HDD is a Microdrive disk, from Hitachi, I suppose. The limit now day is 8gb.http://www.hitachigst.com/portal/site/en/menuitem.7ac4c50322419b5daa67bca4bac4f0a0/

Re: N91 4Gb HDD upgradeable to 8Gb HDD?

we can't say thats impossible.

but, What WE CAN CERTAINLY SAY that, if the SAME processor and the RAM used for controlling more and more larger HDD then, It will be a matter of GOOD JOKE...!!!

Re: N91 4Gb HDD upgradeable to 8Gb HDD?

I think so (thank you korn...)

May be NOKIA will be more careful about the processor and RAM because there is a thing "N97" coming with a 20GB HDD. Hope so...

Cheers,

Hi

Changing the hard drive in the N91 will void the warranty. If a Nokia Authorised repair centre has advised that they will do this to your phone please contact your local Nokia support team.
