Nokia Shares Past, Present and Future


A Future Classic in the Making

A Future Classic in the Making

After a temporary hiatus on its product front and whetting the appetite of the Symbian community, Nokia presents the first two of many products to come, as introduced during its Showcase Nokia event held at Sydney in the month of February. There isn't really anything classical about the features of the 6220 Classic, due to the fact that it is the second device to integrate a Xenon flash coupled with a 5-megapixel Carl-Zeiss lens, the first of which was seen on the Nokia N82 camera phone. As a camera powerhouse, the 6220 Classic will promote high quality image sharing on Nokia's Share on Ovi online file-sharing platform, supported by the phone's inherent HSDPA connectivity. Wi-Fi is the missing element here, which could be the deterrent for users who seek a greater variety of connectivity options. The Nokia 6220 Classic will be retail ready in the month of June at a recommended retail price of S$728, and the usual telco contracts will give consumers the necessary push to purchase the device.

Multimedia, as we have seen, has always been a core focus for Nokia's design considerations, and the N78 presents itself as another device that suits the basic and advanced productivity and entertainment needs as demanded by the discerning consumers in recent times. Covering its bases adequately with Wi-Fi, HSDPA and a strong multimedia suite, the N78 will also be a strong contender as a multi-purpose phone as the floodgates to a whole range of mobile devices opens up in the days to come. For a quick peek at how the N78 performed in our labs, head on over to our First Looks and decide if it'll be the next item on your to-buy list, and decide fast, for the N78 shall be available at retail outlets at the end of May (which is not too long. Really, not too long) with a recommended retail price tag of S$808.
