Nokia 'goes one-up on the N78'

28 January 2009 — 2:30 PM

Consumers recycling mobile phones in order to trade up to the latest contracts may be interested in the Nokia N79, a new review suggests.

Dave Oliver states in a piece for the Register Hardware website this week that the handset appears to be an improved version of the N78 model which was launched last year.

Although he notes that it does seem as if the Finnish manufacturer has been a little quick to replace the N78, it cannot be denied that the N79 has some tempting improvements.

As well as "looking leaner" and offering HSDPA 3G, changeable XpressOn covers and N-Gage gaming, the device is praised for coming with a 3.5mm headphone jack, twin speakers and simple access to a range of social networking sites.

"It's well worth getting," the review, "but if you take the plunge now, keep your fingers crossed that the N80 won't get here too soon."

Nokia unveiled the N79 in August 2008.
