Nokia has announced the Nokia N78, a sleek looking phone designed for navigation, photography and music. The Nokia N78 is the model that’s set to replace the N73.



The Nokia N78 is one that would satisfy the music lovers out there, with the ability to access the Nokia Music Store, Nokia Internet Radio and Nokia’s new personal media sharing community dubbed ‘Share on Ovi’.

Following onto the phone’s music capabilities, the feature that stands out would be the FM transmitter built into the phone, allowing the phone to transmit on an available FM slot to be tuned in from a car or Hi-Fi set.

Moving on to its imaging capabilities, the phone comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and a built-in A-GPS system that geotags the photographs taken with the phone. This would be a useful function for trips and vacations as information about the time and place the photograph was taken is automatically captured and embedded into the image file.

Apart from the above, the N78 will come with microSD support for up to 8GB, WLAN, HSDPA and Bluetooth 2.0 compatibility.

The N78 is slated for a 2008 2nd quarter release, just before the arrival of the Nokia N96.
