Berlin, Germany and Hong Kong, China - Nokia today unveiled a new range of Nokia Nseries multimedia computers and experiences, reinforcing Nokia's leadership in making the Internet mobile. Nokia Nseries has become synonymous with high-performance multimedia experiences and these new devices further establish Nokia Nseries as the leader in mobile multimedia. All Nokia Nseries devices include high-quality video and photo capture capabilities, superb audio performance, high speed Internet browsing and more.
"Nokia Nseries brings mobility to those experiences which used to be linked to a place or a single purpose device. When you have a Nokia Nseries device that is always with you and connected, you no longer need to sit in front of your TV to watch your favorite program or take along a separate digital camera when you go on vacation," said Anssi Vanjoki, executive vice president and general manager of Multimedia, Nokia. "Our goal is to make it easy for people to have their favorite experiences - whether it's sharing video, browsing the Internet or buying new music - with them all the time."
The Nokia Nseries range is an iconic example of the fastest growing product category in the mobile space: converged devices. Nokia expects that the coverged device market will grow to 100 million units in 2006 and to exceed 250 million units in 2008. According to Canalys research, the converged device market reached 53 million units in 2005 with Nokia commanding more than 50 percent market share of that market.
"We launched Nokia Nseries last year to address this fast growing market and we have already sold approximately 5 million Nokia Nseries multimedia computers," explained Vanjoki. "Clearly, people want to have a device that gives them access to all digital content, all the time, wherever they are and at a reasonable cost."
Nokia also announced continued cooperation with Carl Zeiss and Adobe, as well as a new cooperation with Flickr, a Yahoo! company.
"The Internet is evolving towards communities of people actively creating and sharing their thoughts and experiences. Working with companies like Carl Zeiss, Adobe, Flickr and others means that Nokia Nseries customers not only get the best in technology, but also the best in useability," continued Vanjoki. "It's very easy to record video, edit it so you can tell the story you want and then share the finished video with whomever you want. With Nokia Nseries, we enable people to create and share their experiences, in the way they want."
The Nokia N93 is the ultimate mobile device for spontaneous video recording. With uncompromised digital camcorder, telephony and rich Internet communications functionality, it features a 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, DVD-like video capture at 30 frames per second, and 3x optical zoom with video stabilization.
