The Nokia N95 still represents, in my opinion, one of the best mobile phones that money can buy with excellent features. While the design wasn’t for everybody, that problem is about to be remedied according to the latest news out of Nokia’s press office. They have confirmed happily that the rumours and mumblings of a new N series phone are all true and they’ve given some details regarding the N79.
The candybar form phone weighs 97 grams and is the lightest Nokia N yet and it looks sleeker and less bulky than its predecessors. It will also feature a media player, A-GPS, and the Carl Zeiss 5MP camera that users have grown to love on the N95 and a few other Nokia phones. It’s WiFi enabled and includes 4GB of microSD memory so you should be able to store a very reasonable amount of pictures, music, and other media. Geo tagging support, a 2.4” high quality display, and an FM transmitter just about rounds off the extensive feature list
The N85 is a step up from the N79 and as well as offering the same features it has a slightly larger 2.6” screen because it’s a more traditional slider style phone. It also has a TV out port and 8GB of memory. Both models are expected in October and will be priced at £300 for the N79 and £360 for the N85 so the design is likely to be the most important factor when choosing one.
