Nokia continues its march to deal direct with the consumer by planning to open a flagship store in Chicago on June 21 and a New York store on or near Fifth Avenue region opening before the end of 2006, PC Magazine reports:

The stores will sell Nokia’s full North American product lines, including high-end phones like Nokia’s N93, N91, N73, and N80. The N93 camcorder-phone, released today in Berlin, was not initially announced as available for the US. This black "multimedia computer" is huge for a phone, but relatively small for a high-quality camcorder that records 640-by-480, MP4-format video at 30 frames per second; takes 3.2-megapixel stills with 3X optical zoom; plays MP3s, surfs the Web, reads e-mail, and connects to Wi-Fi. It’s all about how you think of it. The camcorder/camera/phone/"multimedia computer" will cost approximately $682 when it goes on sale in July, according to a Nokia press release.
