Nokia is hoping for a piece of the lucrative music player market with a handset capable of holding 4GB of songs and downloading on the fly.
The Nokia N91 is a smartphone "optimised for music" with a battery that lasts for a claimed 12 hours, longer than most iPods.
The tri-band phone is set up to allow downloading from music retailers, and has Bluetooth connectivity built in allowing phone-to-phone data swapping with other Nokia users.
Jonas Guest, vice president of music at Nokia, described the device as "the world's best mobile-connected jukebox".
"What sets the Nokia N91 apart is the fact that it is always connected: you can download new music while on the move, add it to your favourite playlist and then share your playlist with friends," he said.
Users can transfer music files from a PC to the phone using a USB 2.0 connection. Bose, Sennheiser and JPL are all providing audio accessories, including headphones and a speaker system.
The N91 is scheduled to be available by the end of the year.
