As it aims to get clear differentiation in the crowded mobile device market, Nokia has launched a range of mobile devices that feature integrated mobile technology.
The three latest models in the Nokia NSeries—namely the Nokia N92, N80 and N71—have design to allow users to watch mobile TV, stream music, share photos and send emails with attachments.
The main attraction is undoubtedly the N92 which Nokia claims is the world’s first of its kind with an in-built DVB-H receiver, the mobile TV standard which is being endorsed by Nokia.
Likely to be commercially available by mid 2006, the N92 boasts a 2.8-inch antiglare QVGA screen that can display TV signals at up to 16 million colours and currently offers four hours of viewing time on one recharge. It features a twist and fold and stand form-factor and TV viewing is optimised in landscape orientation. The device has an electronic service guide and a 30-second replay feature.
As well as for TV viewing, the N92 can be used as a music player, supporting up to 1500 songs, and a as a radio. It has an imaging mode that supports still pictures and video capture and has a 2 Megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom.
Whilst it primarily receives DVB-H broadcasts, the N92 also works as a 3G phone and utilises cellular networks to support services such as voting, programme feedback and additional web interaction. It also includes email and content downloads using WiFi.
