Nokia has taken the wraps off their latest N Series handsets – the N79 and N85. They both run on the Symbian S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 OS. The N79 is a candy bar whilst the N85 is a dual slider. Both handsets share many similar features as expected from any S60 handset – both have a 5 Mega Pixel camera, Dual LED flash, TV-Out, Micro-USB, 3.5mm AV connector, MicroSD support, GPS, Navi-Wheel and integrated FM Transmitter supporting frequencies 88.01 – 107.9Mhz.
The key defining feature of the N79 is the interchangeable Xpress-on smart covers, which change the theme scheme when swapped. There are two sets to choose from:
- Canvas white with light sea blue/espresso brown/olive green.
- Seal grey with espresso brown/coral red/white
The N85 on the other hand has an OLED screen which should help on sustaining battery life, this is the first handset I know of Nokia releasing with such a screen and one I’m glad they’ve done, it’s progress comes from lessons learned with the N95’s poor battery performance as the N85 also ships with a decent 1200 mAh battery.Read More »Nokia N79 And N85 Now Official
