Nokia N99 or Nokia N900 successor to N800 Internet Tablet pops up

Remember Nokia N99 phone of your dreams? You know, the one with Photoshopped picture and fantastic specs – 16 GB of internal flash memory, 16:9 3.2″ wide screen, GPS. Wi-Fi, 8 mpx camera and other goodies. Well, when we almost convinced ourselves that this Nokia N99 was a work of overeager Nokia fan, along comes Engadget and drops this picture on us: While Engadget says that this is the picture of the successor to Nokia N800 Internet tablet (Nokia N900?), it looks pretty similar to the original photoshop drawing of Nokia N99. Looking at the live pictures of Nokia N99/N900 it seems that original picture could really have been made by some Nokia designer in the early stages of design concept for the new device. The current pictures of Nokia N900/N99 device also seem to be an early prototype and do not reveal too many details about the new Nokia multimedia computer. Nokia N99/N900 will obviously have a full QWERTY keyboard and the camera with a flash is now built-in at the front of the device. What’s interesting about this prototype of Nokia N900/N99 is the total absence of any controls on the front surface. Since it seems to be pretty inconvenient to use slider keyboard everytime you want to surf the net or listen to music, it may be an indication of significantly improved touch interface. Still we don’t even know whether the pictures here are real and all the rest is a pure speculation on my part. But Nokia has hinted that it is working on some new type of mobile device for next year. So if this one’s real, if Nokia will manage make a good touch interface and if Nokia N99/N900 comes anywhere near the originally indicated specs, it will give Apple’s iPhone, HTC Omni and any other future competitor a real run for the...

Nokia N95 is Finally Shipping

Nokia N95 – their NSeries flagship starts shipping today in Europe, Asia and Middle East. Finally. I’ve been waiting to upgrade to Nokia N95 from the moment it has been announced. The only problem I may have – it may be too bulky. Still, with all the good things that is crammed inside Nokia N95 multimedia computer, I think I can live with that. I mean, c’mon. I will have 5 mpx digital camera, GPS navigator, mp3 player, 30 fps MP4 player and video camera in one place. And that’s in addition to 3.5 G HSDPA phone with Wi-Fi! As long as Nokia N95 is not a real brick, I think I’ll take...

Nokia N99 – Slider with QWERTY Keyboard and Numerical Keypad to boot?

Nokia N99 – Slider with QWERTY Keyboard and Numerical Keypad to boot?

Nokia N99 pictures and soaped-up specs may have been a fantasy and Photoshop skill show-off by some eager fan. But then again, it may have not. Recent patent filing shows that Nokia is indeed working on a slider phone with QWERTY keyboard and numeracial keyboard: As you can see, the sketch in patent application is very similar to the image of Nokia N99 we have seen earlier: Could this really be Nokia N99? To remind you, the claimed specs for it were: 9 way front joystick button, 16GB FLASH internal memory, up to 4GB mini SD slot, 16:9 3.2″ wide screen, GPS, MP3, DIVX XVID MPEG AVI video reading, WLAN WIFI, qwerty pad, 8MP camera, 3CCD 720 pixel wide 30fps video capture. Sure, some of the specs, like 3CCD imaging system and amount of internal memory sounds pretty out there. But if you think of where the smart phones will be in a year or two, they are not that far fetched. We already have 32GB NAND Drives, 10 megapixel camera in Samsung B600 and 800 x 320px screen in Nokia E90 Communicator. Why not put all of it into a one cool...

Nseries Nokia N77 Phone/Mobile TV set

Nokia N99 Nseries phone picture surfaces

If the picture below are real, looks like Nokia took a page out of HTC book and created a phone with sliding-out QWERTY keyboard – Nokia N99: Nothing official of course, it was submitted by e-mail to Mobile Diva Darla Mack, probably by an eager fan from Nokia labs 🙂 Nokia Nseries N99 multimedia computer supposedly will have: 9 way front joystick button, 16GB FLASH internal memory, up to 4GB mini SD slot, 16:9 3.2″ wide screen, GPS, MP3, DIVX XVID MPEG AVI video reading, WLAN WIFI, qwerty pad, 8MP camera, 3CCD 720 pixel wide 30fps video capture. Now, if these specs would be true, I think Nokia N99 would be the first NSeries cellphone to truly justify the name of “multimedia computer”. But judging from the number (N99), it will be some time until this beauty comes out. We should see Nseries N97 yet. Via: Mobile...

Nokia N76 Nseries cellphone – great blend of design and functionality

Nokia N76 Nseries cellphone – great blend of design and functionality

Finally! A really thin Nokia NSeries phone – Nokia N76. And in beautiful red too. Why couldn’t they release Nokia N76 NSeries multimedia computer/cellphone for this Christmas? I already got my girlfriend Samsung D830. Really. I have been eying Nokia NSeries cellphones for a while now. Each one released has a bunch of features that I would really like to have in my new cellphone. I’ve been looking for a this perfect new Nseries multimedia computer to replace my Nokia 6070 for four months now. There’s been several times now that I ‘m in mobile phone shop and almost ready to buy one. But then I look at Samsung D900 or MotoKRZR and compare it to Nokia N93 or N91 and somehow somehow I’m unable to pull the trigger. Yes. NSeries have Carl Zeiss optics, yes there’s DVD quality 30 fps camcoder there and 5 megapixel camera, yes they’ve got 8GB HDD and there’s Wi-Fi connectivity to boot. But in each of the Nseries phones there’s this one “must have feature” missing. Sometimes it’s Wi-Fi, sometimes it’s camera quality, or storage capacity, or something else. And when I think that I will be carrying this “brick” in my pocket for next couple of years… And now there is Nokia N76. Granted, feature wise Nokia N76 is no match for the more advanced NSeries phones like N93i, or N95. No HDD or DVD quality camera. No fancy maps and GPS Navigation. No HSDPA, UMA of Wi-Fi connectivity. But when I really think about it, Nokia N76 seems just good enough for most of my needs: Connectivity. Nokia N76 is a dual-mode WCDMA2100/EGSM850/900/1800/1900 MHz or EDGE EGSM850/900/1800/1900 MHz phone. So it will work almost anywhere I travel. And while I won’t be downloading P2P movies on it via 3.5 Mbps HSDPA networks, the Edge connectivity should be enough for some browsing, Skyping and occasional e-mail checks. Imaging. I won’t be taking print quality pictures with 2 megapixel camera and I won’t be shooting world class movies with 15 fps video camera, but from what I’ve seen on other 2 Mpx Nseries phones the actual photo quality is quite good. Hey, I remember that few years ago 2 Mpx was a cutting edge for most consumer digital cameras and nobody was complaining much about picture quality then. Nokia N76 has got dedicated camera keys, so it’s easy to point and shoot and that seals the deal on this front for me. If I want better quality pictures I can still use my digicam. Music. Again. It’s no iPod, but Nokia music software on Nseries phones is quite good, Nokia N76 has dedicated...

For a business user Nokia N75 can offer e-mail access through SMTP, POP3 and IMAP4 with the ability to view Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, PDF, ZIP attachments. As any other Nseries phone it has powerfull synchronization capabilities through SyncML and is able to synhronize data with major PC applications such as Microsoft Outlook (98, 2000, 2002, 2003), Outlook Express, Lotus Organizer (5.0, 6.0), Lotus Notes (5.0, 6.0). To store all those photos, video, audio and data files Nokia N75 packs plenty of storage room. It comes with 60 MB on-board free user memory, Hot swap MicroSD card, up to 2GB and up to 40 Mbytes internal dynamic memory.

Nokia N93 approved by FCC

In the past Nokia has been known to be rather late with the introduction of it’s cellphones to the U.S. market. Usually European and Asian markets were served first and then after a few months the phones with slightly different numbering schemes were released in U.S. Now things might be changing. Only a few weeks after the introduction of new Nokia Nseries N72, N73 and N93 handsets at the Open Studio presentation in Berlin, these Nokia mobile phones/multimedia computers are showing up on FCC website. Yesterday Nokia Nseries N93 cellphone/camcoder was approved by FCC. Quick look at the photos and browse through users manual at FCC site confirms that this is indeed the same phone that was presented in Berlin. Nseries Nokia N93 will come 3.2 megapixel camera, 30fps video capture, WLAN, mp3 player, lots of memory and other cool features we reported earlier. Some new features that we missed during the introduction: TV out port for easy connection to external TV sets and projectors Sequence mode of up to 6 pictures for still camera Camera self...
