MWC 2008: Nokia's N78 "multimedia community phone"

Share

nokia%20n78.jpgCrikey. The multimedia bit refers to the N78’s ability to let you spend your pocket money buying music from the Nokia Music Store, with the phone also packing an FM radio for all you MUSIC THIEVES out there who insist of using the radio system.

The N78 also has a rather impressive 3.2megapixel camera with lenses and bits from global LensMaster Carl Zeiss, plus it does Nokia Maps and lets you share stuff via Nokia’s online youth portal Ovi. Hence the “community” reference.

And there’s also an A-GPS system in that little case for managing to find your dad’s house first time, and doing lots of advanced and fancy “Web 2.0” stuff like geo-tagging your photographs.

It’s packed. I would very much like to take one apart to see what it looks like inside!

The N78 will be available around the second quarter of this year, for a regular price of 350 euros. Which translates to £260. Which translates to FREE – as who ever actually pays money for a phone?

  • WARNING! WARNING! WARNING
    My name is Dino Ahmetovic and I want to give advice for everybody who wants to have a business with Sabrina McJohnson stopover@live.com . SHE IS A CHEATER.
    Explanation: I’ve ordered one cell phone N96 for $370 including shipment. Next day she sent me message as she mistakenly packed three units??? After resending additional $370 for second unit (for third she told me that will go on hers bill), now she ask me to pay some taxes and fees? If anybody needs prove I will send all e-mails from her and everybody can see who is Sabrina McJohnson.
