Nokia today announced that its flagship imaging device, the Nokia N90, has been awarded the European Media Phone of the Year 2005-2006 by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA), the largest editorial multimedia organization in Europe. The award is an endorsement of the Nokia N90's industry-leading feature set, which makes it one of the most high performance devices in the marketplace.
Commenting on the award, EISA praised the Nokia N90 as a 'true best-of-breed multimedia phone, stuffed full of advanced photo, video audio and messaging features'. EISA also highlighted the Nokia N90's Carl Zeiss optics which 'endows it with serious photographic ability, including capturing and editing 2 megapixel digital photos and MPEG 4 352x288 resolution video.'
EISA is the largest editorial organization in Europe, with a membership of 50 Audio, Mobile Electronics, Video and Photo magazines all drawn from 20 European countries. At the end of June, all EISA member magazines came together for the election of the European awards. The panel annually chooses the best equipment in a number of categories from products introduced during the preceding twelve months.
Announced in April, the Nokia N90 is the flagship camera product in Nokia's newly launched Nokia Nseries range of high performance multimedia devices. The first mobile device to feature superior Carl Zeiss optics and a range of advanced camera features, the Nokia N90 meets the expectations of even the most demanding picture taker.
"The Nokia N90 has raised the bar for mobile devices and we are delighted to receive this accolade from consumer electronics magazines across Europe," said Tuula Rytilä-Uotila, Director, Imaging, EMEA, Multimedia, Nokia. "This award is also an endorsement of the strategy behind Nokia Nseries - to bring to market high performance multimedia devices which will make digital convergence a reality."
