N-Series handsets are in a different class to the rest of the Nokia range of mobile phones, these specialist phones have features that cannot be found on other models as well as very different designs and the very latest technology.
N-Series relates only to the Nokia mobile phone models that start with the letter ‘N', these include the likes of N91, N81, N76, N95 and the latest addition N82.
The manufacturer uses the range to showcase their latest creations to come out of their research and development department with features such as 5 megapixel camera lenses, new software applications, designs such as the twist and flip of the N92 and expanded internal memory such as with the Nokia N95 8GB.
Some models are music orientated whist others cater for users who primary use of their handset is as a camera. The newest addition to the range is the Nokia N82 which recently launched in a titanium casing.
This new model is concentrates more on digital photography and video, offering a 5 megapixel camera and fast video capture.
The Nokia N95 has, for a long-time, been the premier camera phone on the market and the recent 8GB updated version has seen its position consolidated and strengthened with the addition of a larger screen as well as the increased memory.
With the new Nokia N82, it looks like the Finnish manufacturer is looking to move itself further ahead of the pack. Like the N95 it possesses a 5MP Carl-Zeiss optics camera, however with the inclusion of a Xenon flash the intentions are clear, to establish Nokia as the premier camera phone company.
With the recent release of theis new handset, we can now get a better idea of what the N82 should be capable of and how it ranks alongside the increasing number of competitors in a congested market.
Capability wise, the N82 is almost identical to Nokia's original flagship N95 coming with 3G HSDPA, Wi-Fi, 100mb of integrated memory, microSD slot (a 2Gb card is likely to be supplied in the retail package) and built-in AGPS. As well as this, Automatic UI rotation has been added enabling automatic screen rotation when the phone is held in either portrait or landscape mode, somewhat similar to the K850i from Sony Ericsson.
One feature that is likely to divide opinion, is the keypad which is reminiscent of the N91, and Sony Ericsson's W880i, as the keys are thin and long, which for some could prove an irritation.
For a phone that packs in such large amount of features it's no surprise that the N82 is a quite large handset, as it has similar dimensions to the above-mentioned K850i, though is marginally wider and taller. A large handset does have its advantages though, as it makes some users feel more comfortable when using the handset and can also encourage the use of stronger materials during manufacturing.
Though not currently available for general release and therefore not for an in-depth review, the N82 is shaping up to be Nokia's next flagship model. If it improves upon the photo quality of the N95, it is likely to become the best camera mobile phone on the market.
The Nokia N82 is one of many new Nokia mobile phones to be released this year. Should you require any further information please feel free to visit our mobile phones shop.
