Nokia N-Series - second wave

Tags: Nokia

At the Nokia Mobility Conference, Nokia today presented the new addition to the N-Series - the N92, N80 and N71 multimedia phones. All three are 3G devices with high-resolution cameras, S60 OS (former Symbian Series 60), Bluetooth, FM radio and miniSD card slot.

The Nokia N92 is the first GSM phone with DVB-H receiver, making it possible for users to watch and record live TV broadcasts. The market for commercial DVB-H broadcast services is expected to spread during 2006. The dual hinge design (similar to Motorola MPx) and the QVGA display will provide comfortable TV experience. The Nokia N92 also features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and infrared connectivity, card slot, FM radio and 2 megapixel camera. The mobile device is planned to be commercially available in mid 2006 with an estimated price of 600 euros.

The Nokia N80 is the world's first handset to feature UPnP technology. This allows it to be used as a remote control for swapping content via Wi-Fi between compatible PCs, audio equipment and TVs. The slider phone has a 3 megapixel camera with macro mode and video capture with digital video stabilization. The Nokia N80 has the same high-resolution display we know from Nokia N90 - 352 x 416 pixels, up to 262,144 colors. The Nokia N80 should be available in 1Q 2006 with an estimated price of 500 euros.

Nokia N71 is something we have seen already from the numerous leeks on the web. The 3G clamshell phone has QVGA display, 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, but no Wi-Fi. Nokia N71 is planned to be commercially available in 1Q 2006 with a price of approximately 400 euros.

Also today Nokia introduced the new identity for the Symbian OS Series 60 - from now it will be called simply S60. The first announcement for the S60 platform is a new Web browser with MiniMap based on the WebCore and JavaScriptCore components of Apple's Safari Web Kit, the industry's smallest and fastest open source full Web rendering engine. The new browser will be able to show the web pages in their original layout and will help the scroll navigation through page miniatures.

Nokia announces convergence devices for mobile TV and the digital home at Nokia Mobility Conference 2005

Nokia strikes another high note with the launch of three more Nokia Nseries multimedia devices, while new Nokia products and solutions for enterprises, application developers and mobile networks give convergence a push.

Nokia Mobility Conference 2005, Barcelona, Spain/Espoo, Finland - Today, at the Nokia Mobility Conference 2005, Nokia illuminated its convergence strategy by extending the Nokia Nseries multimedia range to include three new devices: the Nokia N92 (the world's first mobile device with a built-in DVB-H receiver), the Nokia N71 and the Nokia N80. With these new devices consumers can wirelessly watch mobile TV, stream music, share photos and send emails with attachments, using technologies such as 3G, WLAN and Universal Plug and Play (UPnP).

This latest launch follows the announcement in October of the Nokia Eseries, a new family of Nokia smartphones targeted at the business world. The Nokia Nseries, first launched in April, and the Nokia Eseries are the manifestation of Nokia's vision of convergence and the emerging digital industry, bringing together information technology, enterprise applications, broadcasting, music and imaging. Speaking at the Nokia Mobility Conference, Nokia Chairman and CEO Jorma Ollila explained how devices like these lie at the heart of digital convergence.

Nokia N92: the clearest picture yet for mobile TV
The Nokia N92 is the world's first mobile device with a built-in DVB-H receiver, making it possible for users to watch and record live TV at any time. Based on open standards, DVB-H is the leading mobile-TV broadcasting technology, enabling low-cost delivery of high-quality broadcast programs to mass audiences.

The Nokia N92 features applications and functionalities that make it easy for users to watch and search for TV programs, create personal channel lists, subscribe to TV-channel packages, set program reminders and access interactive TV services. The ergonomic form factor includes media keys, a view mode and a large (2.8") anti-glare QVGA screen supporting 16 million colors.

Nokia N71: all-in-one entertainment
The latest member of the Nokia XpressMusic family, the Nokia N71 is a pocket-sized entertainment system complete with stereo FM radio and support for digital music and videos. The Nokia N71 also features the new Nokia Web Browser with Mini Map. This allows a semi-transparent, zoomed-out view of a web page, so that users can quickly orientate themselves on a handset screen.

Nokia N80: make yourself at home
Equipped with WLAN and 3G, the Nokia N80 is the world's first handset to feature UPnP technology. This allows it to be used as a remote control for wirelessly swapping content between compatible PCs, audio equipment and TVs. Images and video stored on the Nokia N80 or on a compatible PC can be viewed on a TV, for instance, while music stored on the device can be played through an audio system. Nokia N80 users can also print wirelessly to any UPnP-enabled printer. In addition, the Nokia N80 supports most commonly used email solutions and office-application formats.

Web browsing in your pocket
At the conference Nokia also unveiled a new web browser for its S60 software for smartphones. The browser, designed to give equal access both to full web pages and mobile-optimized content, is available for S60 licensees as part of the S60 3rd Edition offering. With the browser built on open architecture, S60 licensees and open source developers will be able to extend its core and build new features on top of it.

In keeping with this open source approach, Nokia has also launched a new Internet portal for its open source software projects: opensource.nokia.com. The portal, a natural extension for the Forum Nokia online developer community, consolidates Nokia's open source activities and provides access to its projects.
