Market leaders Nokia were naturally among the key news makers at the Mobile World Congress (formerly known as 3GSM). The Finnish company revealed four new high-end devices today, including the dual slider Nokia N96, Nokia N78, Nokia 6210 Navigator and Nokia 6220 classic.
Nokia N96 is a quad-band handset with dual-band HSDPA support for worldwide coverage. It runs on S60 3rd edition, FP2 and has a 2.8″ QVGA (240 x 320 pixels) TFT display with 16M colors. Other features of this true powerhouse include GPS with A-GPS support and geo-tagging for photos, Wi-Fi, the stunning 16GB of onboard memory, plus a microSD slot. If that feature pack doesn’t grab your attention, hardly anything will.
Nokia N96 has a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with Carl Zeiss optics and powerful dual LED flash. It also records video in VGA resolution at 30 fps.The connectivity set sports Wi-Fi b/g with UPnP support, microUSB v2.0, DVB-H class C, a 3.5mm stereo headphone plug and Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP stereo audio.
Another very interesting handset joining the Nseries, Nokia N78 comes in the bar form factor. Both Nokia N96 and N78 have a few design elements in common, starting with the underlying resemblance to Nokia N81. This means that they will see little appreciation among the GSMArena team, as we aren’t the greatest fans of that design, to say the least.
Nokia N78 is a quad-band phone with dual-band HSDPA support. The novelties are geotagging and the integrated FM transmitter, allowing music to be played on any FM radio. Also to mention is the multimedia menu with Navi wheel.
Nokia N78 also uses S60 3rd edition, FP2 and has a 2.4″ QVGA (240 x 320 pixels) TFT display with 16M colors. Nokia N78 offers A-GPS support, Wi-Fi, 70MB on-board memory, expandable via microSD.
Nokia N78 has a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera with Carl Zeiss optics. It also records video in VGA resolution at 15fps but is still capable of playing VGA video clips at 30 fps.
