p2pnet.net News:- The tech media at large seem to think Nokia’s 7610 phone with its megapixel camera, 65,000 color screen, 4x zoom – and mp3 music player – is IT.
But MobileMag doesn’t agree.
"Although this is a first for Nokia, many other manufacturers have released camera phones of this quality or better," it says here. But, "With almost 200 exhibitors at CeBIT 2004 from Asia, it will be difficult to stand out."
Nonetheless, Nokia is Nokia and the 7610, "lets pictures turn into prints in just a few seconds, via a Bluetooth connection to a compatible printer or by using a printer kiosk," says MobileMag.
"Using the Kodak Pictures application on the phone, pictures can be uploaded to a virtual photo album on the web and shared online with others or ordered as prints via an online service."
The camphone can also create short films of up to 10 minutes and with the Movie Director application, users can add special effects and music to the video clips, says PC World here, adding:
"The tri-band phone is due to be available during the second quarter of this year in two versions – one for GSM 900/1800/1900 and the other for GSM 850/1800/1900 – at a price of $613, the company says."
