Amir at the Mobile Space blog argues that the recently introduced Nokia N78 will be ideal for avid music-listeners thanks to a number of music-centric features: 

  1. High battery capacity (1200 mAh) gives 24 hours of listening in offline mode
  2. Small dimensions and relatively light – 113×49×15.1 mm, just above 100 grams 
  3. FM transmitter integrated
  4. NaviWheel makes scrolling easy 

It certainly looks promising; now we’ll just have to wait for the release in the second quarter and see.

Some quick opinions from NokNok on Nokia’s new flagship model.

Launch: Q3 2008 in Europe.

Have a look at some hands-on impressions of the N78 at The Symbian Blog and Nokia Nseries blog. They like the phone and say that the keypad isn’t as uncomfortable as it may look.

Today Nokia announced an Nseries midrange but still very capable smartphone, the N78. 3.5G, A2DP wireless stereo, WiFi, 3.5mm connector, 3.2 megapixel auto focus camera and aGPS are welcome features of a moderately sized smartphone (113mm x 49mm x 15.1mm, just a tad smaller than the N82). But what’s up with the keypad? I hope the keys are not as painful to use as they look like. It’s a shame design is accentuated at the expense of ergonomics, and especially the trend of messing up the keypads is hard to understand. The display is the same 2.4″ size as N82. Some unusual features are the 24-hour music playback (in offline mode), Navi wheel and integrated FM transmitter.

Market launch in Q2 this year is good news!

Nokia N96

After a few weeks of speculation, today Nokia announced the N96. You’d be hard pressed to find any functions left out in this package. Hits the market in the third quarter for €550. Specifications after the break. Read the rest of this entry »

Intomobile has found out some specifications of the rumoured Nokia N96. Here are some of the more interesting details:

  • DVB-H Class C
  • 103 x 55 x 18 mm
  • 16 GB internal memory and a microSD slot
  • 950 mAh battery
  • 2.8 inch 320×240 display
  • 3.5 mm headphone jack
  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash

Quite a few people seem to be a bit disappointed in these specs. I’m worried about the battery not having capacity enough, but I won’t be missing VGA resolution or xenon flash that much. I think this screen isn’t large enough to really make use of a higher resolution. I’ve had a device with a 3.7″ VGA display and, while it was nice to have, the higher resolution wasn’t that much more useful even on that screen size. The advantage of a LED light over a xenon flash is that it can stay lit.

Finally there’s a black N82. This is much better than the silver front N82. The black one doesn’t look as cheap and the keypad numbers are visible.
