Nokia N82 is Newest N-series Nokia Phone

By: susan hargreaves

Up until recently the Nokia N95 was the market leading N-Series mobile phone for digital photography, music and applications and with the addition of an 8GB version the phone has seen sales go from strength to strength.

The Nokia N95 has, for a long-time, been the premier cameraphone on the market and the recent 8GB updated version has seen its position consolidated and strengthened with the addition of a larger screen as well as the increased memory.
With the new Nokia N82, it looks like the Finnish manufacturer is looking to move itself further ahead of the pack. Like the N95 it possesses a 5MP Carl-Zeiss optics camera, however with the inclusion of a Xenon flash the intentions are clear, to establish Nokia as the premier cameraphone company.

With the handset now officially released, we can now get a better idea of what the N82 should be capable of and how it ranks alongside the increasing number of competitors in a congested market.

Capability wise, the N82 is almost identical to Nokia's original flagship N95 coming with 3G HSDPA, Wi-Fi, 100mb of integrated memory, microSD slot (a 2Gb card is likely to be supplied in the retail package) and built-in AGPS. As well as this, Automatic UI rotation has been added enabling automatic screen rotation when the phone is held in either portrait or landscape mode, somewhat similar to the K850i from Sony Ericsson.

One feature that is likely to divide opinion, is the keypad which is reminiscent of the N91, and Sony Ericsson's W880i, as the keys are thin and long, which for some could prove an irritation.

For a phone that packs in such large amount of features it's no surprise that the N82 is a quite large handset, as it has similar dimensions to the above-mentioned K850i, though is marginally wider and taller. A large handset does have its advantages though, as it makes some users feel more comfortable when using the handset and can also encourage the use of stronger materials during manufacturing.

Now that the Nokia N82 has finally started to filter into the mobile phone market, it is shaping up to be Nokia's next flagship model. If it improves upon the photo quality of the N95, it is likely to become the best cameraphone on the market.
