Nokia was feeling left out these last couple of days, so they went ahead and unveiled their 1.3 megapixel tri-band GSM handset at the PMA show today. Of course we are the least bit surprised.
The Nokia 6682 smartphone for North America is identical to the 6681 announced last week for the European, Middle East and African markets, minus the Push to talk functionality, why you ask? That’s a damn good question! Atleast they added some stainless steel trim to make up for it.
The handset uses an LED flash and offers users a vivid 262k colour LCD screen for viewing photographs, playing music or watching up to one hour of your recorded videos. Photos can be printed with Nokia’s XpressPrint solution or on any PictBridge compatible printer via USB. Memory is expandable via the hot-swappable reduced-size MMC card.
What would an all-in-one smartphone be without MP3 and AAC support? The built-in media player will let you create your own custom playlists and purchase and download songs using the Loudeye mobile music solution.
I would still take the Sony Ericsson S710a over this. No price was announced but I’m sure we will be bored with another press release when that time comes. It is due out in Q2 of 2005.
