New additions to N series range available now

Nokia yesterday unveiled the latest in its Nseries range, the Nokia N97 and the Nokia N86 8MP.

Both devices incorporate high-speed connectivity, the latest version of Nokia Maps and a large onboard memory for storing of music and photographs.

“Nokia’s Nseries brand is associated with a certain expectation and given the performance of the new flagship device, we are extremely proud to introduce the Nokia N97 in South Africa,” says Mathia Nalappan, General Manager of Nokia South Africa.  “Users of the Nokia N97 will quickly see that it embodies the full Nseries experience as well as many incredible additions. With the introduction of widgets to our devices, users can now experience an ‘always open’ window to favourite social networking sites and Internet destinations.”

The Nokia N97 combines a 3.5″ touch display and a full QWERTY keyboard as well as integrated A-GPS sensors and an electronic compass.

The N86 features a wide-angle Carl Zeiss optics and an 8 megapixel sensor.

“People demand mobile cameras that take excellent pictures in all light conditions,” continues Nalappan. “That’s why the aperture of the Nokia N86 8MP is comparable to that of a high-quality, stand-alone digital camera. Whether it’s running with the bulls in Pamplona or capturing the panoramic beauty of a sunset over Signal Hill in Cape Town, the Nokia N86 8MP will take brilliantly clear, wide-angle images that are instantly geotagged to be uploaded onto sites like Ovi Share or Flickr.”

The Nokia N97 and Nokia N86 8MP both offer full integration with Nokia’s services outlet, Users are able back up and edit contacts and calendars through Ovi Sync, access files from any location using Ovi Files, share content through Ovi Share, download Nokia Maps, Ovi Mail and browse the newly launched application store, Ovi Store.

The Nokia N97 and Nokia N86 8MP will be available in South Africa from July 2009 at an estimated retail price of R7,999.00 and R6,999.00 respectively.
