Nokia N86 Overview
Nokia has finally decided to formally announce the Nokia N86, its brand new 8 megapixel camera phone that it inadvertently showed off to the world in Singapore when the rest of the mobile phone world was at MWC 2009 in Barcelona.Now the full details have been released, we can see that the N86 is, firstly, a cracking camera phone, at least as far as the camera part is concerned; but secondly, not exactly as innovative a device as you'd expect from an N-Series phone.
The Nokia N86 is a camera phone first and foremost. Nokia has also bestowed it with GPS, a compass, geo-tagging of pics, HSDPA, N-Gage, 8GB of internal memory (expandable up to 24GB), and a superb battery that can withstand 25 hours of solid music playing.However, it's the camera that really stands out on the N86. The camera is 8 megapixels, but this is nothing new for 2009 - all the major manufacturers were showing off 8 megapixel cameras at MWC, while Sony Ericsson were showing off their 12 megapixel camera phone, the Idou.What makes the Nokia N86 different is its camera's quality - it really should push into dedicated digital camera territory.
