Mobile phone giant Nokia has taken the wraps of three new smartphones in its consumer-targeted N series: the N93, N73, and N72. All of them run S60 Third Edition on top of the Symbian OS, but other than that they are surprisingly different.
One of these new smartphones — the N93 — Nokia describes as “the ultimate mobile device for spontaneous video recording.” This device will feature a 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, DVD-like video capture, and 3x optical zoom.
Users can connect this smartphone directly to a TV for a wide-screen movie experience or upload images and video to online albums or blogs. Moreover, N93 owners will be able to create high-quality home movies and burn them to DVD with the included Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0 software.
It will be able to handle more than just video, though. The N93 will include a stereo FM radio and, of course, a player for digital music files.
It will have a clamshell design; a 2.4-inch, QVGA display; and Bluetooth. This device will also have 50 MB of internal Storage an a miniSD slot if that isn’t enough.
But Nokia isn’t ignoring image capture. This smartphone will also include a 3.2 megapixel (2048 by 1536 pixel) camera with Carl Zeiss optics, capable of creating up to 10-inch-by-8-inch pictures.
Like its sister model, it will have a 2.4-inch screen and Bluetooth short-range wireless networking.
The N73 will have a different form-factor than the N93. Instead of a clamshell shape, it will use a “candybar” design with a numberpad below its screen.
The third model Nokia just unveiled — the N72 — is less focused than the other two and will almost certainly be less expensive, too.
The N72 will have a some things in common with the N73, like Bluetooth and the same general shape.
Pricing and Availability
Nokia says these upcoming N93 and N73 will be available in July, but it doesn’t say in what countries.
On the other hand, Nokia says that the N72 will hit the market in June in many countries, including the Middle East and Africa, Russia, Eastern Europe, mainland China, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
Of course, the prices for the smartphones will be determined by the wireless service providers who choose to offer them.
