The Nokia N82 seems like the next flagship of the Nokia N-series of multimedia-oriented smartphones. Although it looks pretty much the same as Nokia N95 specs-wise, it outmatches the current heavyweight champion with a xenon flash and automatic screen rotation.
While automatic screen rotation for the Nokia N95 seems to be just around the corner, there's nothing that can beat the xenon flash on those night party shoots. The Nokia N95 however has recently received some 8 gigs worth of stash for your multimedia needs plus a gorgeous 2.8-inch display. So it is a fight that's somewhat uneven, the two cannot be compared directly. Maybe the form factor will be decisive and user preference will take it from there.
Anyways, the Nokia N82 is a highly sought after device, and we are more than happy to have finally laid our greasy hands on it.
We are working on a fully-fledged review that should be ready some time next week. We wanted to share with you our first Nokia N82 images plus several other goodies.
First off, we present you the Nokia N82 photos. We gotta admit the N82 is not the prettiest of handsets but it looks alright - especially having in mind it's loaded with features. You can't see silvery Nokia phones often, but the Nokia N82 is one of them. Some of us would have preferred black and hope there's a black version coming in the future (you didn't hear us say 8GB, did you?).
