Fresh from Nokia: N96, N78 & 6220
Was scheduled to attend this virtual launching of the Nokia N-Series Mobile World Congress hosted by WOMWorld. It’s part of the Mobile World Congress 2008 which is happening now until February the 15th in Barcelona, Spain. Missed it due to several scheduled meetings so I didn’t get to ask questions.
Hot off the grille from Nokia are a batch of new N-Series phones.
Nokia 6220 Classic
2.2 inch screen, 3.5G/HSDPA, Assisted GPS, 5MP Camera, TV Output, Xenon flash, FM Tuner, Bluetooth, up to 8GB storage
3.5G/HSDPA, WiFi, 3.2MP Carl Zeiss optics, Assisted GPS, FM, Bluetooth, up to 8 GB
3.5G/HSDPA, WiFi, Assisted GPS, 2.8 inch screen, 5MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics, flash & video light, DVB-H for Digital TV, 16GB Internal memory
The N78 has no real keys and uses a touch surface (interesting). The fourth unit is the Nokia 6210 Navigator which is a slider phone, HSDPA, 3.2MP camera and aGPS.
The N96 on the other hand was built for gaming with the new NGage platform. Aside from the built-in 16GB internal memory, you can add an external 8GB microSDHC to pump that to 24GB. Now that’s some serious storage you got there. This could be the iPhone-like unit that we saw during the Nokia Go Play video presentation in Singapore last year. Those who bought the Nokia N82 two months ago are in for a big disappointment.
