Nokia N75: Smallest Nokia Nseries Multimedia Computer

Nokia today introduced the Nokia N75, its smallest multimedia computer, offering digital music playback, quality photography, telephony and rich internet communication. The Nokia N75 provides a complete multimedia experience in a thin and elegant clamshell, while utilizing Nokia's renowned ease of use.

"By combining people's entertainment and leisure needs into the Nokia N75, Nokia is affecting the lifestyles of mobile device users in a positive way. With all its features and beautiful design, the Nokia N75 keeps your life connected and it's far easier and more enjoyable to just have one device to carry around, and still keep ahead of the game!" said Nigel Rundstrom, vice president of Multimedia Sales for Nokia in North America.

Soundtrack to your life
The Nokia N75 music experience excels even with the device closed. The digital music player has easy controls on the cover of the device, and the reflective 1.36" color cover display guides you to your music, which is always just a button press away. Supporting a multitude of different formats, including MP3, M4A, AAC, eAAC+ and WMA, the advanced digital music player includes an equalizer, playlist, shuffle and repeat features for a direct connection to compatible online music services. When you connect the Nokia N75 to your compatible PC, a mere tap on the music key acts as an instant link to music stored. The PC-mobile synchronization redirects your favorite tunes straight to the Nokia N75, which can store up to 1,500* individual tracks on an optional 2GB microSD card. In addition to playing downloaded music and ripped cds, the Nokia N75 also includes a stereo FM radio, allowing you to listen to your favorite talk or music radio stations through your compatible headphones or through the integrated 3D stereo speakers.**

Show me what you got
A mere click of the dedicated camera key on the Nokia N75 results in a sharp, ready to print 2-megapixel (1600 x 1200 pixels) photos - select the best pictures by previewing them as a slideshow through the 2.4'' screen with up to 16 million colors. With up to 16x digital zoom, an integrated flash LED, and the files in JPEG/EXIF format, you can expect excellent quality for the photos taken. This entertainment device doubles as a mini TV screen, for optimized viewing of streaming and downloaded video clips. Featuring MPEG-4 video capture and playback in landscape mode, the Nokia N75 delivers an instant video experience with audio recording. With internal memory of up to 40 MB, which can be further expanded with an optional microSD card of up to 2 GB, the N75 allows users to capture up to 500 minutes of high quality video or close to 2500 2-megapixel photos.

The world in your hand
The highly intuitive Nokia Web Browser with Mini Map delivers desired Web pages with their original design directly to the high-resolution color display (320 x 240 pixels, up to 16 million colors). Furthermore, the browser enables RSS feeds, so users can subscribe to their favorite Web sites and receive regular updates. Keeping in touch with friends is just as easy as from your home computer, but the Nokia N75 is always with you - just follow simple set up prompts to access an existing compatible email account or standard SMS and MMS features. Part of the Nokia Nseries multimedia computers, the Nokia N75 offers great functionality in one beautifully shaped connected device. Designed to work on 3G (WCDMA 850/1900 MHz), EDGE and GSM (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) networks, the Nokia N75 provides a fantastic Web browsing experience.

The Nokia N75 is expected to be available initially in the US during the fourth quarter of 2006.

Nokia N93: review

Sandra Vogel has reviewed this mobile phone from Nokia, The N93.

Video and stills shooting are clearly the N93’s main selling points, but there is a lot more going on here thanks to Symbian S60 v3. It is a great shame the N93 is such a beast for the pocket and has so little internal and provided memory. If Nokia could squeeze the overall hardware size down, the N93 would be very desirable indeed. As it is, it is just too bulky to be a main handset and too expensive to be a second one.

3D TV could be three years away

3D television could be in homes within three years, according to a European research consortium.
Levent Onural, co-ordinator of the multinational 3DTV network, said the technology was already in place for 3D TV and cinema to become commonplace.

The consortium, funded by the European Commission, consists of about 200 researchers in seven countries, and is halfway through its four-year duration.

However, Prof Onural said holographic television was at least 10 years away.

He said: "We do think holographic 3D TV is feasible, but the technology is not in place yet.

"If you ask my opinion, it will take another 10 years to get there, but some say it will take 14 to 20 years."

However, he said that it would offer the "ultimate viewing experience".

"For example, take a football game. Viewers would be able to look at a TV that will be like a coffee table and see small-scale real football players made up from light running around on that table."

Lower-end technologies

The research consortium is looking into all aspects of 3D technology, such as capturing 3D motion scenes, computerised representation, transmission and display.

Professor Onural, who is based at Bilkent University, Turkey, said: "Lower-end technologies, such as stereoscopic 3D (a method of displaying an image that gives the impression of depth) will be commonplace in homes and cinemas in about three years."

He said the technology had been present for many years, but recent advances would mean the motion sickness that has made 3D films an unpleasant viewing experience in the past could be reduced.

The research consortium has also developed and tested 3D stereoscopic displays where the viewer can look at 3D images without special glasses.

Professor Onural said: "With stereoscopic cinema, we think that there will be huge interest from the movie-goers, and we think it will be available in regular movie houses in three years.

"We think that some people might want to purchase 3D television sets for home viewing. "

However, he admitted that he did not "yet know how the consumers will behave and what the commercial success of that project will be".
