Slimline Nokia – N76

It’s the new year time to recover from Christmas and go on a bit of a diet, and Nokia are no different.  The Finnish giant’s resolution for 2007 was to lay off the chips and lose some weight. That they have with the new slimline member of the N-Series, the Nokia N76.

Billed as a ‘multi-media computer’ rather than a phone, the N76 is a sleek clamshell at only 13.7mm thin and boasts 2.0 megapixel camera, WCDMA/EDGE/GPRS/GSM connectivity, FM Radio, standard 3.5mm audio jack and Bluetooth and USB connectivity.

Music fans will appreciate the dedicated quick cover keys on the Nokia N76, which let you quickly and easily control the device’s music features from the outside of the folded device, for instant tunes wherever you are.  Holding up to 1500 tracks the Nokia N76 has a 3.5mm jack, giving users the opportunity to use their favourite headphones and supports the popular Windows Media  DRM for optimal use.

Using the dedicated quick cover keys, you can snap that unexpected moment without having to open up the device. Then upload it to a compatible photo sharing community, like Flickr.
The 2.0 megapixel (1600 x 1200 pixels) camera can capture, zoom and review pictures on the large 2.4" display.

The color screen brags 16 million colours, and in landscape mode brings a familiar feel to surfing the web on a mobile. Web pages can be navigated quickly and easily with the Nokia Web Browser with Mini Map and access to popular internet services like Flickr and Amazon for searching, shopping or sharing is easy.
With Nokia Mobile Search local services, restaurants, bars, shops or just about anything else you want are just where you need them, in the palm of your hand. You can then locate them using online maps or simply click to call them. It’s that easy.

New software, services, and updates can be downloaded using the cunningly named ‘Download!’ application, and saved on to the handset. With up to 2gb of expandable memory, that’s a lot of downloading.
"We did not want to compromise any of the key Nokia Nseries experiences when we designed the stylish Nokia N76 multimedia computer," said Pekka Pohjakallio, vice-president, Multimedia, Nokia. He continued, "Nokia Nseries consumers are bleeding edge technology users and with them in mind we want to offer intelligent and entertaining multimedia functionality in an easy to use, ultra slim package."
The Nokia N76, which is based on S60 3rd Edition software on Symbian OS, is expected to start shipping in volumes during the first quarter of 2007 with an estimated, pre-tax, unsubsidised sales price of approximately 390 euros (about £260).
