Back to black - Nokia have announced the release of the N82 Multimedia computer in black with photography, navigation and Internet connectivity.
Nokia today unveiled the Nokia N82 in stylish black, bringing a blend of state-of-the-art imaging, integrated navigation and high-speed Internet connectivity to the Nseries range of converged devices. This jet black multimedia computer comes with a line-up of compelling photography features, including a 5Mp camera, Carl Zeiss optics and a Xenon flash. Not only does the Nokia N82 take great pictures, its advanced connectivity features makes it easy for consumers to share their discoveries, journeys and locations. The N82 enables people to geotag the images they capture - allowing them to not only be saved by date, but by location as well. The Nokia N82 in black will have an estimated retail price of approximately £315 SIM free before taxes and subsidies and will be available in Q2 2008.
“The Nokia N82 is made for storytelling,” says Juha Kokkonen, Director for Nokia Nseries devices. ”As one of Nokia’s leading-edge connected cameras, the Nokia N82 in black captures people’s journeys and discoveries. With built-in A-GPS it even helps people to find new places by pairing contextual information with a wide array of connectivity features such as Wi-Fi and HSDPA. We make it easy for consumers to quickly share those moments as they happen.”
Taking advantage of its integrated A-GPS functionality and high resolution camera, the Nokia N82 automatically tags images with capture location metadata, making it possible to view the capture location on a map either on the Internet or on the device itself. When it comes to sharing, consumers can upload their pictures or videos directly from their Nokia N82 to services like Share on Ovi, Flickr or YouTube. By installing Nokia’s exclusive and free Sports Tracker application, consumers can share their whereabouts and travel route with others on the Sports Tracker website – including the capture locations of images. The Nokia Sports Tracker is a GPS based activity tracker that runs on Nokia smartphones. Information such as speed, distance and time are automatically stored in the application, and can be shared with others.
So that everyone can track and share their own journeys, stories and pictures with friends the Sports Tracker mobile widget will soon be made available with many new and existing S60-based converged mobile devices. It is also possible to share and compare travel routes or workouts with friends or the Sports Tracker community. Others’ journeys can also be browsed by location, for example to find a more exciting travel route.
The Nokia N82 is a true travel companion and supports microSD memory cards of up to 8GB which allow the device to hold the user’s choice of up to 3,600 high-resolution pictures, 5 hours of high quality video capture, up to 6,000 songs or all of the available regions for the Nokia Maps application.
