First Look: Nokia N78

1:34 /

As with all Nokia N series smartphones, the Nokia N78 impresses with its high-end features, especially the new geotagging tool, but we were slightly disappointed by the spotty call quality.

[ background music ] >> Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at cnet.com. And today we're taking a first look at the Nokia N78. Like the other N series devices, this offers a lot of high end features, and one new one that's pretty cool which I'll talk about in a second. I'm gonna talk about the design a little bit, it's a little interesting. Down here you've got the alpha numeric dial pad, but it's all like single rows, there's no individual buttons and no spacing. And you would think it's actually hard to use, but I find it not so bad. They're a little uncomfortable, but I didn't have too many problems dialing numbers or composing text messages. And here you've got the navigation toggle, which you can press up and down and left and right as usual, but it's also touch sensitive so you can make counter clockwise and clockwise motions, and navigate through your menus that way. As far as features, it has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and US 3G support. It's also got a 3.2 megapixel camera, and integrated GPS. And the cool thing which I was talking about earlier is that you can Geo Tel your photos, so you can find out the location of your photo, and have it placed on a map. It's a good way to record your trip, or you know, if you take a random photo somewhere that you thought was cool, it's a good way to see where it is on the map, and have a record of that memory. One thing I'm disappointed about, the call quality wasn't that great, and also the camera, the photo quality wasn't super. So for about five hundred and fifty dollars I would like a little bit more out of those two areas. You can but it unlocked from Nokia's website, or other online retailers, as well as Nokia's flagship stores. [ background music ] I'm Bonnie Cha, this has been your first look at the Nokia N78.
