Nokia launches the N79 and N85

Nokia today fulfilled a promise from earlier this month with two new Nseries devices both aimed at driving down the cost of getting into full smartphones. The N85 as flagship appears set to replace the N81 and upgrades the camera from two to five megapixels, also adding GPS both for mapping and for geotagging shots. It also switches to a 2.6-inch AMOLED screen that should supply richer color and as much as 28 hours of music playback on a single charge.

Like the N81, the N85 slider is considered an N-Gage friendly phone and has controls suited to playing games from Nokia's service in landscape view. Music is also an emphasis, though the handset maker has opted against the built-in storage of the N81 8GB and instead bundles an 8GB microSDHC card, giving owners the option of an upgrade to 16GB or beyond in the future. Internet access is supplied either through HSDPA-based 3G or through Wi-Fi, though international support isn't yet known.

The N79 in turn replaces the N78 from just months earlier and upgrades the camera from 3.2 to five megapixels, also using a dual-LED based flash; Nokia is marketing the device as a fashion phone with swappable back covers that change the look to reflect its owner's tastes. The candybar design also has the full 3G, GPS, and Wi-Fi feature set and lasts for up to 24 hours of music. A 4GB microSD card gives it more storage than the earlier handset.

In contrast to some Nokia phone introductions, the company plans a quick release and should make both the N79 and N85 available in the UK as of next month. Releases for Europe and other areas are likely to vary, though both the N79 and N81 have been available in the US as unlocked devices.

Both N79 and N85 have been developed with great features. The upgrade to 5 mega pixel camera for both the phones is what I liked the most. Also the basic memory of 8GB is expandable to more than 16GB Nokia is running speedily ahead of Apple in the race of smartphones.

It seems like Nokia has decided to crush the Apple's iPhone in India. The quick launch of N96 and now these 2 phones to compete with iPhone is what shows that Nokia is still the best in mobile phones. Be it of any type.

Only if someone can list the prices of these 2 phones, it will be good. I want to compare this with N96 as I am planning to buy 1 of the 3.

Nokia launches the N79 and N85

The N85 One of the obvious features of this handset is the 2.6 OLED screen, which has a faster response time, lower power consumption and faster refresh rate than LCD, which lends the screen to fast motion video and gaming. Refusing to let the N-Gage platform die, Nokia has bundled in 10 games, including one of the users choice, to really get people interested in this handset as a gaming device too. GPS with turn by turn navigation, a 5MP snapper with Carl Zeiss optics and an FM transmitter make this a possibly great mid-range device, with up to 28 hours music playback. It also comes with an 8GB card in the box, so you can pack it full of media magic and watch it on the little kickstand in the idle moments.

The Nokia N79: The new entertainment focused candybar handset, will be similar to the N85, also announced today, although come with a more stylised focus. For those worried about matching their handset with their outfit when they hit the streets, three smart covers are included in every box, with the ability to change the theme?s, as you might expect, accordingly. Replacing the N78, it will feature a 5 Megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, geotagging and dual LED-flash. Elsewhere on the multimedia front will be an FM Transmitter, with direct access to the Nokia Music Store, power for up to 24 hours of music playback plus 3.5mm headset connector and dedicated music keys for non-stop music enjoyment. Taking advantage of that GPS, Nokia has also bundled in Nokia Maps 2.0 and there is a 4GB microSD card with supports up to 8GB rather than having memory built in.
