Nokia has launched a new N-series multimedia phone with a five megapixel camera, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi connectivity and orientation sensor technologies.
The Nokia N82 assists GPS technology, connects to GSM and high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) networks, and has a built-in Bluetooth.
The company claims that N-82 enables users to access more than 15 million points of interest such as sights, bars or restaurants. In addition, it allows users to send map excerpts and routes by MMS and save map screen shots to the gallery. It also features fast camera activation, autofocus with a dedicated autofocus assist lamp, fast reloading between shots and DVD-like quality video capture.
According to PC World, N82 is the successor to Nokia’s N95 phone and has similar features but N82 is packed into a candy-bar shape body that makes the device lighter than the N95. Although the candy-bar design has increased the length of N82 but it has reduced the width and weight of N82. The new phone uses a 2.4-inch QVGA color display, compared to a 2.6-inch QVGA display on the N95. N-82 also features a Xenon flash similar to that of Sony Ericsson’s K850i Cyber-shot phone.
According to Nokia, N82 includes 2GB microSD card, which allows users to store up to 900 photos or up to 84 minutes of video on the device. It also has content driven 3D multimedia menu and an orientation sensor that rotates the user interface automatically between horizontal and portrait mode. It also supports the Ovi family of Nokia internet services, including Nokia Music Store, N-Gage games and Nokia Maps.
The Nokia N82 is available at a retail price of approximately E450.
