Nokia announced today several new mobile devices that show how the boundaries are blurring between the Internet world, mobility and the consumer electronics industry.
The new Nokia Nseries multimedia computers showcase the high-performance multimedia experience that becomes possible when you combine connectivity with cutting edge mobile technology.
"Nokia Nseries multimedia computers represent the next leap forward in personal computing, " said Anssi Vanjoki, executive vice president and general manager of Multimedia, Nokia. "In particular, the Nokia N95 is the evolution of what computers have now become; pocketable devices with the power to connect you to the information, services, content and other people you want when it suits your needs. This is the fastest growing segment in the mobile space and this year alone, we have already sold more than 10 million Nokia Nseries multimedia computers."
The Nokia N95, an all-in-one multimedia computer with a pioneering dual slide concept, integrated GPS functionality, a 5 megapixel camera and support for high-speed mobile networks, makes it easier to watch and record videos, listen to songs, take high-quality photos, browse the internet, or catch up on email whenever you want. The Nokia N75
multimedia computer, designed especially for the Americas market comes in a fantastic, slim fold form factor supporting all of the Nokia Nseries multimedia experiences, including music, photography and access to Internet services.
"But it's not just about having a powerful device in your pocket, " continued Vanjoki. "We are also creating unique experiences that enable people to connect to their passions and take their passions with them wherever they go."
The Nokia N95 also includes integrated GPS and the Maps application with country, region and world maps that allow users to explore the world, find specific routes or locate services such as restaurants and hotels in more than 100 countries.
