Nokia missed a deadline it set for itself for launching a new range of mobile phones that will take on RIM's BlackBerry devices. Nokia planned on shipping the new E-series mobile phones for the enterprise in the first quarter, but the phones won't ship until later this month because they needed more-extensive technical testing. Nokia also delayed shipments of some of its new multimedia-enabled N-series handsets. The N91 music phone should have been on store shelves in December, but now the company expects to have all N-series phones available by later this month.
