Nokia N78 - Multimedia SmartPhone that features GPS

Nokia have introduced the N78, a smartphone with impressive multimedia capabilities and even a GPS. This handset is expected to start shipping in the second quarter of 2008.

The Nokia N78 combines music, video, photography and navigation and is designed to take advantage of new services such as the Nokia Music Store, Nokia Maps and Share on Ovi - a new online service that lets users share their personal media.

The N78 features a 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, integrated GPS with free Nokia maps, high-speed HSPDA 3G connectivity and a microSD memory card (currently available up to 8GB).

The combination of GPS and the 3.2 megapixel digital camera can be used for the increasingly popular practice of 'getotagging' images. When photos are taken, the N78 automatically tags them with capture location metadata, making it possible to view the capture location on a map on the device itself or online.

The Nokia N78, as an Nseries device, is marketed as a multimedia computer and features OMA DRM 2.0 support for music, internet radio, internal stereo speakers and support for standard 3.5mm headphones. It also has an integrated FM transmitter that allows your music to be played on any FM radio.

Compatible accessories include the Nokia BH-903 Bluetooth headset, MD-7W speakers and the DC-1 power pack.
