Two new Nokia phones that are definitely on my to-watch-out-for list are the 8-megapixel N86 and slim E55 smartphone.
The dual-slide N86 is Nokia’s first 8-megapixel phone and boasts of a Carl Zeiss Teslar lens with dual-LED flash, a brilliant 2.6-inch OLED display, HSDPA connectiviy, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, TV-out, 3.5mm headphone jack, and 8GB of internal memory that can be expanded via microSD card. It runs on the S60 3rd Edition FP 2 OS and features a kickstand like the N96 for easy hands-free video viewing. It’s expected to become available in Q2 of this year though its price is yet to be known.
The slim E55, meanwhile, looks to follow in the footsteps of the successful E51 by offering a full-featured device in an ultra-slim form factor. It comes with a 2.4-inch QVGA display, 3.2-megapixel camera, compact QWERTY keypad (SureType), HSDPA connectivity, WiFi, Bluetooth, A-GPS, N-Gage support, 3.5mm headphone jack, 60MB internal memory expandable via microSD card, and a 1500 mAh battery that can reportedly last up to 28 days on standby. It measures in at 9.9mm in thickness and weighs just 54cc making it truly one of the thinnest and lightest smartphones in the market today. No word yet on its pricing, but hopefully, it will also be as affordable as the E51.
I’ll keep you guys posted once I receive word on when these beauties will exactly become available in the local market.
