Nokia showcased two new N-series mobile phone models on the Mobile World Congress today. The models in question are N96 and N78; both have QVGA display, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, MicrosSD slot with up to 8GB support, N-Gage platform support, and they run on Nokia's S60 platform. They also feature a must-have multimedia player as well as FM receiver. Besides having an FM receiver, both of these phones can transmit an FM signal in a 10 meter radius, a feature that comes in handy when you use it in your car.
The N96 is similar to N95, so we can easily say it’s an upgrade. However, N96 brings new features, such as a 2,8-inch display, 5 megapixel camera featuring Carl Zeiss optics and auto-focus, DVB-H mobile TV and 16 GB of internal memory.
N96 will hit the shelves in Q3 2008, and should cost about €550.
The N78 is a bar-style phone, much like the N73 model. This model features a 3,2 megapixel camera, with Carl Zeiss optics, of course. It packs a morphing keyboard, where the buttons are automatically adjusted to suit the application you currently use.
N78 will find its way to the market sometime in Q2, and will cost about €350.
