All About Symbian gets the first proper Nokia 9500 Communicator review out the way and it's a pretty interesting read if you're a clamshell fan. Nokia isn't doing anything terribly fancy in this $1,000 phone, but the addition of Wi-Fi and more memory make it looks like a worthwhile upgrade for Nokia 9000 loyalists. On the other hand, it doesn't have enough whiz bang to win over any new converts, either, especially when there are more powerful Windows Mobile devices out there (with a different form-factor, I'll grant you) for about half the price.

Ewan says this is just the first part of his look at the 9500, too, but so many people were lighting up his in-box that he felt he needed to get an overview out of the way—if you can't get enough about the 9500, there's more coming.
