Nokia today announced that the Nokia N95 8GB is the first ever mobile phone to receive Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certification.
The DLNA is a body advocating the interoperability of wired and wireless consumer devices. For the consumer, this accolade translates into convenient connectivity between the DLNA Certified home electronics devices, personal computers, and the Nokia N95 8GB.
DLNA technology enables multi-vendor home ecosystems of consumer devices by building a common connectivity platform for a variety of multimedia experiences.
DLNA has certified the Nokia N95 8GB as a Mobile Digital Media Server. The connectivity and media capabilities of the Nokia N95 8GB allow for enjoying content, such as music, photos or videos, wirelessly on other devices in the home environment.
DLNA has already certified over 1800 products in the personal computer and consumer electronic categories, but this is the first time the stringent guidelines for interoperability set by the DLNA have been met by a mobile phone. Mobile devices were included in the DLNA Networked Device Interoperability Guidelines that were published in early 2006, and are now part of the recently launched DLNA certification program.
