Nokia debuts N series trio

Shoot movies, listen to music, make occasional calls

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Nokia this week said it has chosen June and July to ship its next Series 60 Third Edition smart phones, all part of the handset giant's N series, including one of the most camcorder-like devices the company has announced to date.

The 3G N93 sports a big 3.2 megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom lens - a Carl Zeiss - mounted laterally. That, and the fold-and-rotate 2.4in, 320 x 240, 262,144-colour screen are configured to give the phone a camcorder look and feel. There's 50MB of on-board storage for your 30fps videos, but you can save them to MiniSD cards too. Beyond 3G, the N93 has a tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE radio, and Wi-Fi on board.

The handset has a stereo FM radio if you tire of taking pictures, along with all the usual MP3 playback and phone functionality. It also plays N-Gage games.

The N73 is a candybar music phone that appears to have taken some design cues from Sony Ericsson's Walkman family. It too sports a 3.2 megapixel camera and radio, but it has integrated stereo speakers with a 3D sound capability to provide the world's yoof with yet another opportunity to annoy people on public transport. It's got a 2.4in screen just like the N93 has, and Bluetooth. It will run on 3G and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks.

The black N72 is essentially a re-styled cut-down N73, this time with a two megapixel camera. It's due to go on sale around the world in June, and will operate on GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks.

The N73 and N93 will follow in July, Nokia said. Pricing will, as usual, be set by carriers, but Nokia said the N93 should retail SIM-free for around €550 ($684). ®
