Nokia 7710 merges landscape mode smartphone with touchscreen
Nokia announced the Nokia 7710 widescreen multimedia smartphone with pen input. The new smartphone includes a full Internet browser, an integrated music player with stereo audio, a set of video features such as playback, streaming and recording, a megapixel camera with 2-x digital zoom and FM radio with Visual Radio client.

The Nokia 7710 works on GSM/GPRS/EGPRS 900/1800/1900 networks, with shipments in Asia and China planned to begin in the fourth quarter, 2004 and in Europe and Africa in the first quarter, 2005.

The new smartphone has support for push e-mail based on Smartner solution, VPN client, free user memory of up to 90 MB plus 128 MB on the included MultiMediaCard (MMC), as well as a full complement of personal information management features, an on-screen keyboard and handwriting recognition. The Nokia 7710 runs on top of Symbian OS. The connectivity options for the Nokia 7710 include a Pop-Port connector with USB and Bluetooth wireless technology for easy data transfer and PC synchronization.

The ability to consume, share and create media as well as using the extensive smartphone features - all on a fantastic display - makes the Nokia 7710 a compelling mobile multimedia device", said Richard Sharp, Vice President, Rich Media, Nokia. "The wide touch screen makes using applications, such as the Time Out Mobile City Guide, World Mate and personal publishing, a very enjoyable experience."

With the moblog client, bloggers can upload images and text to their personal blog. The PhotoBase and drawing board applications offer the user versatile image editing functionalities such as crop, zoom, rotate and flip. Users can even write or draw on top of the images they have taken with the Nokia 7710 or draw their own pictures.

The Nokia 7710 smartphone will feature several mobile media applications and services, such as Visual Radio, which provides a richly interactive information channel to dramatically enhance the FM broadcast experience. For example, listeners can see information on the song and artist currently playing on the radio or participate in competitions. The preinstalled eBook reader lets users enjoy electronic copies of their favorite titles. The eBook reader makes it possible to purchase or download eBooks from the retail site

The Nokia 7710 will also support the Nokia Streamer SU-22 accessory, which will be used in DVB-H mobile TV pilots in a variety of countries around the world.
