Nokia announces the N76, N93i and N800
Nokia's CES offerings include the slim N76 and the smaller N93i. There's also the perplexing N800, an Internet tablet that follows in the dusty footsteps of the 770
Today at CES Nokia revealed some of its new handsets for 2007. The first one we played with was the Nokia N76 (pictured left). It's a 3G clamshell phone that's just 14mm thick when folded. It also features a flat metal keypad, a 2-megapixel camera, an MP3 player, an FM radio, Bluetooth 2.0, an expandable microSD slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack so you can use your own headphones to listen to music.
Next up was the Nokia N93i (pictured right), which looks a lot like thebut is much smaller and lighter at 58mm by 108mm by 25mm. It still has the twisty screen that turns into a viewfinder and a 3.2mm Carl Zeiss lens, but is a lot more pocket-friendly. The camera can shoot still pictures or capture video at 30 frames per second. Other features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, infrared, an expandable microSD slot, an MP3 player and FM radio.
Finally we saw the new Nokia Internet tablet: the N800 (pictured middle). Like its predecessor, the Nokia 770, it doesn't have a slot for your SIM card but it is designed to work as an Internet calling device, enabling you to make VoIP calls via a Wi-Fi hotspot. It's also smaller than the 770, measuring 144mm by 75mm by 18mm. It has two expandable memory slots so you can store much more content on it.
The N76, N93i and N800 should all be available some time this year, although if previous N-Series launches are anything to go by, you might have to wait for longer than expected. -AL
