TIPA stands for “Technical Image Press Association”, a non-profit association of European photo magazines which picks the best in anything related to images every year – from digital cameras to flash storage and even photo frames.
This compact 112 g device packs GSM, UMTS and HSDPA connectivity, 2.4″ screen, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooh and more goodies; in fact, we already wrote about the N82 specs a long time ago, so head there if you want to learn more about them.
Of course, the main reason this phone won the TIPA award is it’s excellent 5 Mpx camera with a high quality Tessar lens from Carl Zeiss Optics and bright Xenon flash, as well as related automatic geotagging and image sharing features. I’m sure you will agree that it’s one of the best camera phones, and a really successful model for Nokia, so it deserves the status entirely.
This is not the first time for Nokia to win this award; Nokia N95 was proclaimed by TIPA as the Best Mobile Imaging Device in 2007, and N80 a year before that.
