Nokia Launches N78 in Indiaby Team Goelji on June 7, 2008
Nokia has launched the N78 in India, which comes with a special feature – the ‘Location Tagger’ application, which automatically tags location data to the picture – allowing users to save pictures by date as well as by geographical coordinates.
Additionally, the Nokia N78 will enable consumers to take full advantage of a suite of Nokia services, including the Nokia Maps and integrated A-GPS. The Nokia N78 is expected to retail for approximately Rs. 19,999. With its black surface the Nokia N78 will be available in two stylish colors: cocoa brown and lagoon blue.
“The slim Nokia N78 fuses features in new ways,” said Vineet Taneja, Head-GTM, Nokia India. “It features location-tagging, which merges camera functionality and A-GPS to not only share pictures but also the places where they were taken. Users can now store all information about locations they visit using an image and share it online with the world. It also allows the fusion of music, camera and internet, enabling users to generate content right from the palms of their hands.”
Touted to be the slimmest of Nseries devices with a 2.4 inch screen, the Nokia N78 packs high-speed connectivity via WLAN and HSPDA 3.5G and a 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics. The N78 comes preloaded with Nokia Maps of 8 cities across the country with points of interest across 52 categories such as bars, cafes, restaurants, hotels and more. Also included is an integrated 3-month navigation license with the device.
“The Nokia N78 carries forward the Nokia Nseries legacy of superior technology combined with a sleek form factor and truly lives up to the Nseries promise of delivering unparalleled mobile multimedia experience with latest technologies and services. It is sure to appeal to consumers who appreciate style and technology in a single compact device,” added Taneja.
The Nokia N78 will also come with widgets enabled by Web Runtime technology. Combining the power of mobile with the power of the Internet, widgets, such as Weatherbug and RSS feed reader, allow consumers to get quick and easy access to their favorite web content.
The Nokia N78 supports microSD cards currently available up to 8GB, internal speakers and support for standard 3.5mm headphones.
