This slightly bulky, innocent-enough cell phone hides all the magic underneath its face. Lift the top and find what is being called the complete office in your pocket.

We gadget freaks naturally love to talk. Via e-mail or voice, we could go on all day. So the 9210 "Communicator" phone from Nokia is the ultimate gadget lover's wunderkind. This slightly bulky, innocent-enough cell phone hides all the magic underneath its face. Lift the top and find what is being called the complete office in your pocket.

Unlike typical PDAs, the Communicator is easy to operate, and feels like a phone. The most impressive feature is its high-resolution color (and we mean screaming color) screen that enables you to play videos and listen to wav. sound files. You can transfer photos from your digital camera, view them in color, forward them by fax or e-mail, and upload them to the internet. There's more, including contacts and calendar, and a truly speedy WAP protocol. And while the new and much-hyped T-Mobile Sidekick phone-and-net provider is a plastic machine that appears cheap, the Communicator is like a rock.
