To complement Share on Ovi, Nokia also unveiled a slew of devices that gives consumers more reasons to share their moments. Our introductions begin with the Nokia 6220 Classic and Nokia N78.

In direct contention with the Nokia N82's imaging prowess, the Nokia 6220 Classic is also packed with a 5-megapixel camera, complemented with Xenon flash and Carl Zeiss optics. Available in two distinct colors, it has a projected release date in the third quarter of 2008.

Besides tagging the word Classic to the Nokia 6220 Classic, one should also consider labeling it as 'advanced'. Beyond its 5-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, the Nokia 6220 Classic is equipped with HSDPA, though one might find the 2.2" screen a tad too small for comfortable web use.

The next new phone, the N78, Nokia embarks on a successful formula based on its N73 series and creates a multimedia device capable of tackling music, navigation and photography effortlessly. Working in tandem with Nokia's newly enhanced Maps 2.0 interface, the Nokia N78 provides geo-tagging, a navigation system that combines GPS and locality of images snapped, as its biggest draw for globetrotters who wish to travel with ease. For those who are interested in the Nokia N78, expect a release schedule within the second quarter of 2008.

Surprisingly, the Nokia N78 is integrated with a 3.2-megapixel camera, which is a little baffling considering its phone segment and the target user group.
