The second phone introduced today by Nokia is the Nokia N70. This slick-looking multimedia 3G smartphone features a 2 megapixel camera, flash, a front camera for video calling, FM stereo radio, a digital music player and support for 3D games.
The slide and shoot design makes mobile photography fast and simple. The rear camera slide reveals and automatically activates the 2 megapixel camera, ready to instantly shoot photos or video. The intuitive slide is complemented with an integrated flash, 20x zoom capability and a range of capture scene settings for optimizing image quality in various environments, including Scenery, Portrait, Night, and Sports.
Furthermore, the dedicated shutter key on the side of the phone enables users to capture images like they would with a regular camera, allowing for greater stability and ease of use.
Nokia believes that by the end of the year more than half a billion people will own a camera phone.
With Nokia XpressTransfer storing solution users will be able to easily transfer photos and video clips from their Nokia N70 phone to their PC. The phone will also allow the user to create photo albums that can be transferred to a PC.
The new improved rotating Gallery provides for enhanced browsing of images and video clips. Images can, for example, be organized into slideshows, with the viewing experience further heightened with added background music. Images and video clips can also be instantly printed from the Gallery with the Nokia XpressPrint printing solution using a USB cable, wirelessly over Bluetooth connectivity, or using the Reduced Size Dual Voltage MultiMediaCard (RS-MMC).
Equipped with a digital music player with stereo audio, FM radio and support for Visual Radio, the compact 126 gram Nokia N70 also doubles as a great pocketable music device. For an even more playful multimedia experience, the Nokia N70 supports S60 and Java 2D and 3D games, some of which are pre-installed in the phone or on the standard in-box RS-MMC.
Measuring just 108.8 x 53 x 17.5 mm (95.9 cc), the Nokia N70 is the smallest ever 2 megapixel 3G smartphone based on the leading Series 60 Platform. It also stars support for impressive 3G features such as two-way video calling and video sharing. Furthermore, additional applications can be installed from various sources**, while organizer information can easily be synchronized with compatible PCs.
The Nokia N70 is expected to be available in the third quarter of 2005. Additionally, a variant of the Nokia N70 for EDGE (Enhanced Data Rate for GSM Evolution) markets will be available at a later date.
