Espoo, Finland – Nokia today announced that the Nokia N82 multimedia computer has been awarded the “Best Mobile Imaging Device in Europe 2008” by TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) – Europe’s largest photo and imaging press association.
“The Nokia N82 is a compact multimedia computer that integrates GPS, web, video and music functions around a 5 Megapixel camera with a high-speed, f/2.8 autofocus lens,” the TIPA jurors said. “This Carl Zeiss Tessar focuses from 10cm to infinity and produces sharp prints up to and beyond A4 size. Several scene modes are also available to optimize the Nokia N82 for great images, whether shooting portraits or night shots,” TIPA continued. Other Nokia N82 features highlighted by the jurors are the Xenon flash and 20X digital zoom.
“We are very excited to hear that the Nokia N82 has been recognized for its excellent imaging features,” says Juha Kokkonen, Director for Nokia Nseries devices. “The Nokia N82 is an excellent example of how converged devices entirely change the way people contribute to and share on the internet by combining strong camera capabilities with built-in A-GPS and an array of connectivity features.”
Taking advantage of its integrated A-GPS functionality and high resolution camera, the Nokia N82 automatically geotags images with capture location metadata, making it possible to view the capture location on a map either on the Internet or on the device itself. When it comes to sharing, people can upload their pictures or videos directly from their Nokia N82 to services like Share on Ovi, Flickr or YouTube.
The features of the Nokia N82 include:
- 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon flash,
- Possibility to capture print quality photos and DVD-like quality video clips,
- Wireless LAN connectivity and HSDPA offering high download speeds,
- Integrated A-GPS and access to maps for more than 150 countries.
The Nokia N82 cell phone supports microSD memory cards of up to 8GB which allow the device to hold up to 3600 high-resolution pictures, 5 hours of high quality video capture, up to 6000 songs or all of the available regions for the Nokia Maps application.
