Nokia launches world’s first handset for mobile TV

Nokia has extended the Nokia N-series multimedia range to include three devices: the Nokia N92 (the world’s first mobile device with a built-in DVB-H receiver), the Nokia N71 and the Nokia N80. With these devices consumers can wirelessly watch mobile TV, stream music, share photos and send e-mails with attachments, using technologies such as 3G, WLAN and Universal Plug and Play (UPnP).

The Nokia N92 is the world’s first mobile device with a built-in DVB-H receiver, making it possible for users to watch and record live TV.

The Nokia N92 features applications and functions that enable users to watch and search for TV programmes, create personal channel lists, subscribe to TV channel packages, set programme reminders and access interactive TV services. The ergonomic form factor includes media keys, a view mode and a large (2.8″) anti-glare QVGA screen supporting 16m colours.

The latest member of the Nokia Xpress Music family, the Nokia N71 is a pocket-sized entertainment system that comes with stereo FM radio and support for digital music and videos. The Nokia N71 also features the Nokia Web Browser with Mini Map. This allows a semi-transparent, zoomed-out view of a web page, so that users can orient themselves on a handset screen.

Equipped with WLAN and 3G, the Nokia N80 is the world’s first handset to feature UPnP technology. This allows it to be used as a remote control for wirelessly swapping content between compatible PCs, TVs and audio equipment. Images and video stored on the Nokia N80 or on a compatible PC can be viewed on a TV, for instance, while music stored on the device can be played through an audio system. Nokia N80 users can print wirelessly to any UPnP-enabled printer. The Nokia N80 supports most commonly used e-mail solutions and office-application formats.
