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.

Pictures, specs and even previews of the Lenovo X300 ultraportable laptop have been floating around for the last few days. It has a 1.2GHz Core 2 Duo chip, 1440 × 900 LED screen, 64 GB SSD and a DVD-RW, all in a very small 1.4 kg package. It’s not as stylish as the MacBook Air, but it’s much more useful with more ports, changable batteries, and an optical drive. The official launch is planned for February 26th.

Samsung just announced the G810, their new flagship S60 smartphone. Unlike Nokia’s phones it doesn’t really come bundled with navigation software for the GPS. Just a trial version of Navigon comes with the phone, but it can handle other third party navigation applications too. The camera pictures are comparable in quality to those of Nokia N95 and Sony Ericsson K850i. However, the G810 adds real optical zoom. Most smartphones in this range are large devices, and the G810 is no exception – with its up to 22 mm thickness it’s one of the heftiest.

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.

According to The UIQ Evangelist the G900 has a new processor called EMP Arm 9 and 128 MB RAM.

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!
