Nokia today unveiled the N85, the latest Nseries multimedia computer made to set new standards for mobile entertainment, gaming and sharing.
Along with an eye-catching 2.6-inch OLED screen and smooth, sleek finish, the Nokia N85 redefines the mobile experience. It boasts N-Gage gaming, music with a built-in FM transmitter, five-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and geotagging capabilities, three-months’ integrated licence for turn-by-turn voice navigation and high-speed connectivity. The Nokia N85 is expected to begin shipping in October 2008 with an estimated retail price of £360, before subsidies and tax.
Juha-Pekka Sipponen, director of Nokia Nseries, said: ‘The Nokia N85 was created to be more than the sum of its parts, offering a complete mobile entertainment package designed for connecting, sharing and discovering.
‘The iconic Nseries dual slider design has evolved to become smaller and sleeker, while integrating the newest features and services to deliver the best mobile experience to date.’
With a strong line up of multimedia features, the Nokia N85 is taking the world of mobile convergence to the next level. Gaming, photos, navigation and music blend together with the newest Ovi and third-party services via 3.5G HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity to make discovering and sharing experiences quick and seamless.
The Nokia N85 is pre-loaded with at least 10 made-for-mobile N-Gage gaming titles that jump off of the screen thanks to the dazzling OLED display and a voucher to activate one full game licence. Dedicated gaming keys light up when the device is in landscape gaming mode to further enhance the action-packed experience.
A state-of-the-art five-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and bright dual LED Flash captures clear, sharp images as well as DVD-quality videos at 30 frames per second. Combined with A-GPS it is possible to geotag favourite pictures to see where each photo was taken using the Nokia Maps application or online sites such as Share on Ovi or Flickr.
Each Nokia N85 comes with an 8GB microSD card, up to 30 hours of music playback time and its high-fidelity sound means favourite tracks can be enjoyed virtually anywhere. Build a personal music collection from the 2.5 million tracks and playlists available from the Nokia Music Store or other online music vendors, or synchronise PC and mobile music libraries via USB cable.
Alternatively, consumers can enjoy RDS radio or a wide selection of stations via the internet. The 3.5mm audio jack makes connecting a top-quality headset simple and a built-in FM Transmitter lets the Nokia N85 play wirelessly through a car or home stereo to really crank up the sound.
While it comes out of the box with a multitude of powerful functions, the pre-loaded Nokia Download! application makes the Nokia N85 truly customisable by offering a wide range of bespoke content. This includes an outstanding selection of world-class branded entertainment content, the latest in mobile gaming and dynamic applications so users can really make their device their own.
