At the Nokia Showcase 08 that I just went to few hours ago, Nokia launched a few services and some new devices.

- Nokia Maps 2.0 Beta:
This new version includes features like routing with stopovers and saving routes. Users can also now switch between bird eye view, traditional view and the brand new satelite view. It also features slowmotion navigation for pedestrians.

- Share on OVI:
It is a new community portal that lets users to share all media types like videos, photos and many more. Users can easily upload media from mobile devices, email or the web. For more info, click to A href=”” target=”blank”>

The 4 devices announced today are:

- Nokia N96 Multimedia Computer

What’s new in this device?

- it has a 2.8″ screen (which looks Super big in real life)
- 16GB of internal memory (and the capability to support external memory cards.. up to 8GB)
- Supports video formats like MPEG4, WMV, FLV

One of the N96 on demo in the showcase.

- USB 2.0… transfer speed is 5-10 times faster than N95… wwowowo i like. lol
- built in DVB-H live TV feature
- 5megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics… no Xenon flash tho…. but it has been compensated with 2 LED lights.

- it has a stand that pops out from the camera at the backof the phone so users can watch movies by resting the phone on the table.
-with the built in A-GPS, users can now Geotag the photos taken with the N96.

Here’s a video I recorded

- Nokia N78 Multimedia Computer

What’s new in this device?

- This is the successor of the famous N73 and this devices combines music, navigation and photography with the benefits of mobility.
- It now comes with A-GPS with free Nokia Maps.
- This model also has Wlan! I bet N73 users are going to upgrade to this. :D

The N78 has a built in FM transmitter.. this means you can set a frequency (let’s say 110.9FM so your car or home radio can tune to the frequency and play the music from the N78)… seriously.. this is one superb featurs that i’d like my N95 to have ahahaha

I’d say that this is the 2nd best Nokia device after the N96…. and would suggest anyone planning to get the N82 to wait for this one… but you might lose the Xenon flash tho… cos this device is still using the normal LED light.

- Nokia 6210 Navigator

What’s new in this device?

- It’s the successor of the current 6110 Navigator and this one has the latest Nokia Maps 2.0 with free voice navigations.

- It is the first Nokia phone with a built in compass so users can use it to see directions when they r on GPS. When users turn the device, the map will automatically maintains it’s orientation.

- I personally think that the compass feature is cool but the rotating of the map is very slow. Nokia should do something about it.

- Nokia 6220 Classic

What’s new in this device?

- It comes with 5megapixel Carl Zeiss optics camera with Xenon flash!
- Built in A-GPS allows users to geotag the photos they take.

The 6220 actually has similar features as the N82. I dont see any difference between the 2 devices yet.

More info soon! :D
