New Nokia offers 'top tech at a budget price'
11 December 2008 — 6:00 PM
A new handset from Nokia has been recommended for being big on features and low on price.
In a recent review for the Pocket-lint website, Rachel Day looks at the pros and cons of the Finnish manufacturer's new Nseries model - the Nokia N79 - and states that it offers the best in high-end technology for less.
The 3G handset, which could interest those shopping for the latest contracts -after having recycled old mobile phones, is fitted with the same five-megapixel camera that appeared on the company's flagship N96 model.
However, with an affordable price tag, Ms Day states that the N79 makes for "an impressive offering", as it also comes with Wi-Fi, GPS and HSDPA connectivity.
"Previously, N-series devices were aimed at prosumer multimedia junkies but it's clear that the N79's core market is the youth area," she adds, noting that the "super-clear" screen is ideal for video playback.
In other news, figures from Gartner revealed this week that despite fierce competition Nokia was still the most popular global brand for mobile phones.
