Softbank has announced today that 16 types of its “2008 winter model” cell phones will be released this winter. Among them, Nokia N82 will be on sale in the middle of this November and Nokia E71 in this December.
Nokia N82 is a tiny, light cell phone with a 5 Megapixels of digital camera where an auto-focused Carl-Zeiss Tessar lens and a Xenon flashlight are equipped. HSDPA data receptions, Bluetooth v2.0 (A2DP, HFP, HSP, DUN, BPP and more profiles), wireless LAN connections (IEEE802.11 b/g) are available. You can play YouTube motion videos with it. An internal GPS antenna is equipped and navigation is available using NAVITIME for Smartphone or Nokia Maps.
Nokia E71 is a business-use smartphone with a QWERTY-style full keyboard, covered with stainless steel. It’s a bit smaller than Nokia E61, the previous model, and unlike E61, this has a 3.2-Megapixel camera. HSDPA connections and wireless LAN access are also available like N82.
These phones will be released from Softbank Mobile, but unlike other Japanese typical cell phones, they has no “Softbank” logos printed on their body.nor are they named any carrier-oriented model numbers like “X03NK”. They are called just “Nokia N82” or “Nokia E71”, like those sold in the rest of the world.
They attract me very much. I want to get at least one of them!
