Nokia N79 unboxed

We haven’t looked at too many Nokia handsets here on T&M but it seems that the gap between Nokia and Windows Mobile is closing rapidly in terms of Web and Email functionality so we thought it was about time that we covered more. Here we are looking at the Nokia N79 which it a neat looking candy bar style device with a fixed numeric keypad. We’ll also be looking at the N85 soon and, if you are a regular here, you’ll know that we also reviewed the N96 recently.


The Nokia N79


As always, we’ll road test the N79 for a week or so and will come back with out review once we’ve had a chance to use it in the real world. For now, take a look at the unboxing and quick tour video below.

Sorry for the abrupt ending to the video above, the last 10 seconds of the recording were corrupt on the camera’s memory card. Not much missed though, just the last items on the specification (which you can see below) and the summary.

The Nokia N79 has a 5 mega-pixel camera & Carl Ziess optics that lets you capture moments in amazing clarity. The dual LED flash lets you take photographs even in the poorest lighting conditions. Geo Tag support automatically records the location of your photos, see when and where your photo’s were.

With an intuitive design to suite your look you can choose between the colour schemes thanks to three cool colour combinations which magically match your cover and your theme. Move and your screen moves with you.

Explore the world and share your discoveries with the Nokia N79. The built in AGPS technology & Nokia maps software provides instant navigation, on foot or by car, letting you find your way to a destination quickly and easily. An extensive POI (Points Of Interest) database lets you find new places around you, find cinema’s, clubs, bars or even cash points.

The Nokia N79’s high speed 3G (HSDPA) and Wi-Fi connectivity let you stay in touch.  Whether it is downloading your emails or the latest news articles from BBC the fast connections on board mean you are always connected.

With a 4GB microSDHC memory card provided there is plenty of space to store all your music or media files.  So whether it’s the latest songs, downloaded straight to your mobile of photos captured on the 5 megapixel camera you are unlikely to run out of sufficient storage space for such.
