NMC: Nokia N80, The Little Multimedia Device That Can

Announced at NMC, the Nokia N80 is a device that expands on Nokia's promise to bring entertainment to the smartphone. With a form factor eerily reminiscent of the first Series 60 device, the 7650, the N80 brings with it WiFi and 3G connectivity, but the main feature here is UPnP - Universal Plug and Play - which should allow you to tap into your TV, PC, Hi-Fi and other home entertainment devices, using the N80 as the central remote control. Full Press Release follows

Read on in the full article.

amazing phone! question is, how does it compare to the N91... Nokia has literally flooded the market now! and the names of these devices are too confusing...

great phones anyhow! Can't wait to see them retail

Its Just like my Fav Phone Nokia 7650.


I just Want to know how PowerFul the Camera is
is it 2 Megapixel or 3
Some Site say 3 and some 2.
The Major Lack is it does not have microdrive like N91
I just brought N70 and now going to upgrade to this only.
One This more its have Sd Cards or Mini Sd.

Cheers Nokia

Damn I had decided on getting the P990 but now I'm seriously going to have to consider the N80.

Why miniSD and not DV RS MMC? I thought the power issue in smartphones was the reason DV cards were being favoured now. Looks the dogs though!

Dimensions of N80

Not sure how accurate the picture will prove to be, but Mobile Tracker shows a photo of the N80 next to a credit card which gives a good size comparison. Slightly less width; slightly more height. The screen resolution on this phone is incredible...basically twice that of most S60 phones to date. This means potentially nicer text, etc.

The phone I've been waiting for!

Now THIS...the Nokia N80...is the phone I've been waiting for. I've been using my old tried and true 3650 (with the weird keypad), waiting for just the right thing. Think about it:

Nokia (absolute leader of Symbian S60 OS)
Slider form factor (well-suited to the large screen size of S60)
Overall small form factor (no more gawks as with the 3650)
Professional appearance (suited to the workplace)
Stereo digital music, including FM tuner
Expandability
High-resolution camera with "flash"
S60 OS...the best out there for mobile phones...so lots of 3d party apps

Basically, my ideal mobile smartphone! I can't wait to get it.

The only gripe I have is NO LENS COVER! WHY can't Nokia put a small cover like almost all digital cameras?

New button?

Anyone have any idea what the key button is just to the left of the "C" key?

And, in essence, the Multimedia key is an extra/additional key which you can set to launch any built-in or installed app.

Unhappy Battery life

With so many features in such a small form factor, I doubt the rechargeable battery will last long. I suspect you’ll have to be less than 2 hours away from the nearest power sockets to get the most out of it.
