Nokia N85 set to be unveiled
Finnish phone manufacturer Nokia is all ready to roll out the N85, one of the latest handsets to come out under the N Series banner which aims to deliver perfection when it comes to entertainment, gaming and sharing over a cell phone. According to Juha-Pekka Sipponen, Director, Nokia N Series, “The Nokia N85 was created to be more than the sum of its parts, offering a complete mobile entertainment package designed for connecting, sharing and discovering. The iconic Nokia Nseries dual slider design has evolved to become smaller and sleeker while integrating the newest features and services to deliver the best mobile experience to date.” Let us take a look at how it fare by checking out its specifications right after the jump.
As with most of the newer N Series handsets, the Nokia N85 will sport a digital camera of high megapixel count. This time round, you will get a 5 megapixel camera complete with Carl Zeiss optics in order to capture just about anything in great detail. Sure, it won’t be the same as a dedicated digital camera, but at least it beats out the iPhone. In addition to shooting sharp images, the camera can also be used to capture DVD-quality videos at 30 fps. Perfect for those moments when you have forgotten to bring out your dedicated digital camera. I only hope the shutter lag won’t be as pronounced as in earlier N Series models like the N73. The N85 also ships with A-GPS that makes it a snap to geotag all your favorite images, allowing you to keep a log of where you’ve taken those pictures using Nokia Maps or various online sites (Share on Ovi, Flickr, etc).
Other features of the N85 include a lovely 2.6″ OLED display, N-Gage gaming support, audio and video playback with an integrated FM transmitter, three month integrated license for turn-by-turn voice navigation, 3G/HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, and a microSDHC memory card slot. Each Euro 450 purchase (that’s before taxes and subsidies, of course) will be accompanied by an 8GB microSDHC memory card to get you started.
