New N-series Phone Nokia N80 in New York

By: Sanjeevkumar

Nokia introduced latest cell phone Nokia N80. This cell phone version that Hi-Mobile sells is the Asian "Internet Edition", so I used the Nemesis Suite (NSS) to change the product code to one that is equivalent to "Greek/English" and then I re-flashed the phone using the Nokia Upgrade Suite (NSU). After 15 minutes of work, I had a Greek/English phone with the latest firmware in it. The Nokia N80 boots in about 15 seconds and it greets you with the standard blue-ish theme found on most recent Nokia phones.

All the hardware buttons and icons are as standard as any S60 3.0 phone except a special button below the joystick that loads a "multimedia" menu which includes shortcuts to the gallery, music, radio and video players. In addition to the normal PIM applications, many extra utilities were included in the Nokia N80, like a Flash player, a Kodak image viewer, Real Player, Lifeblog, QuickOffice, Adobe PDF Reader, Converter, Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard utility, UPnP and a few more.

What's missing compared to my E61 is all the GPS utilities that could be used with a Bluetooth GPS module and some Exchange/Blackberry utilities. There is also a "Download" application that has shortcuts to online packages for applications like ZIP, anti-virus, Yahoo! Go, Podcasting, WLAN Wizard, Gizmo, Barcode reader and more. One important feature that the device lacks is "auto keylock" support, which thankfully can be fixed with the download of a freeware utility. The part that personally interests me in some of these newer Nokia phones is VoIP.

Nokia has implemented the SIP standard and since the latest versions of the firmware it has STUN support which makes it more robust when used with free SIP services from around the globe (as opposed to an Asterisk server at the same side of your firewall). I tried the phone with Gizmo, VoIPBuster, FWD and Ekiga. Except Ekiga's Linux client which seems to be having some trouble communicating correctly with Nokia's client, all the other services worked perfectly. Nokia N80 is enriched with multimedia features and marvellous connectivity options.

A user can satisfy both the personal and professional needs with the help of Nokia N80. It has 3-megapixel camera and a second VGA camera which allows the users to enjoy photography without compromising with quality. So are its musical features. The integrated music player enables the users to experience the latest melodies wherever he roams. Perhaps, Nokia N80 is one of the most advanced camera phones that is available today. However, it is not a matter of pictures alone. With its WLAN connectivityScience Articles, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi one can experience hassle free communication.
