Nokia N79 gets really official

Yesterday we gave you a glimpse at the new Nokia N79 and Nokia N85 handsets, leaked a day early.

But despite some photos and a bit of  specs, there was not too much information about the new devices yet.

Well, today is the official day for the launch of Nokia N79 and N85 and all the details about the new handsets are finally out there in the open.

Let’s start with Nokia N79:

Nokia N79 specs include:

  • WCDMA 900/2100 (HSDPA), EGSM 900, GSM 850/1800/1900 (EGPRS) connectivity
  • S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2 OS
  • 2.4 inch QVGA (240 x 320 px) 16M color display
  • 5 mpx (2584 x 1938) camera with CArl Zeiss lens, dual LED flash and 30 fps video recording
  • WLAN IEEE 802.11b/g with UPnP support
  • Built-in A-GPS
  • FM Transmitter
  • Built-in accelerometer (orientation sensor)
  • MicroUSB connector, Hi-Speed USB 2.0
  • 3.5 mm stereo headphone plug
  • TV-out support (PAL/NTSC)
  • Bluetooth 2.0 +EDR, USB 2.0
  • Up to 50 MB internal user memory
  • 4 GB inbox microSD memory card
  • Nokia battery BL-6F, 1200 mAh with:
    • Up to 210 min (3G), 330 min (GSM) talk time
    • Up to 400 hrs (3G), 370 hrs (GSM) stanby
    • Up to 5 hours video playback  (offline mode)
    • Up to 24 hours music playback (offline mode)

Candybar Nokia N79 looks like a logical progression from Nokia N73, packs all the features of high end multimedia device and  ads some style with colored replaceable covers with matching themes.

I’d expect it to do as well as it’s predecessor did in the market. Although, if the price is comparable, I’m not sure where this device leaves Nokia N78.
