Multiple media go mobile with the Nokia 7700
At the annual Nokia Mobile Internet Conference in Nice, France and the "Destination Nokia 100% Pure Mobility" event held in Brisbane, Australia, Nokia announced its first media category device, the Nokia 7700, which provides users with a mobile Internet and personal media experience. The Nokia 7700 media device enables users to view web pages with a full Internet browser over high-speed mobile networks on a 65,000 color touch screen optimized for viewing Internet content. Additional features include music and video playback and streaming, an integrated VGA camera, FM radio, multimedia messaging support, as well as a full complement of personal information management features. The Nokia 7700 media device works on GSM/GPRS/EDGE 900/1800/1900 networks, with shipments in Europe, Africa and Asia Pacific expected to begin in the second quarter, 2004.

The Nokia 7700 media device combines the ability to consume and create various media with the latest mobile technologies. The high-quality color touch screen (640 x 320 pixels) means that users have a rich Internet experience available at their fingertips, as well as a fantastic display for watching streaming video or viewing images taken with the integrated VGA camera. Using the included stylus and the on-screen keyboard or handwriting recognition, users can easily add entries to their phonebook or calendar, write email messages or create a document. Users can personalize their Nokia 7700 with a variety of wallpaper and ring tones.

With 64 MB of internal memory and an expansion slot for additional memory, users of the Nokia 7700 device can store a wide range of content from a variety of sources, ranging from music and video files to back-up data. They can also synchronize the Nokia 7700 with their personal computer using the Nokia PC Suite software. Support for the Bluetooth audio profile allows consumers to connect a compatible wireless headset for hands-free use.

Using the new Nokia Series 90 User Interface on the Symbian OS, the Nokia 7700 provides a powerful and easy-to-use device for mobile media consumption. The Developer Platform for Series 90 enables developers to create applications for a global audience and can be obtained through www.forum.nokia.com.

The Nokia 7700 will also support the Nokia Streamer SU-6 accessory, the first mobile IP Datacast receiver designed to demonstrate the mobile phone television experience using the DVB-H network. The Nokia Streamer can be attached to the Nokia 7700 like a battery pack, and will be used in pilot projects to showcase the future of digital broadcasting on mobile devices.
