Nokia Introduces the N80 Mobile Phone With UPnP Support
Nokia has announced the Nokia N80, the first handset to enable seamless home media networking between compatible TVs, audio systems and PCs.

With simple to use yet advanced UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) technology, the Nokia N80 can be used to tap into the digital home network, acting almost as a remote control, enabling secure and convenient access to compatible PCs, audio equipment and TVs.

Images and video stored on the Nokia N80 or a compatible PC can be viewed wirelessly on the living room TV, while listening to music stored on the device through the living room audio system. Printing is now faster too, as Nokia N80 users can print wirelessly to any compatible UPnP-enabled home printer or printing kiosk.

Nokia N80 is the first quadband handset designed to work on 3G (WCDMA 1900 or 2100), WLAN, EDGE and four GSM bands (850/900/1800/1900).

Additionally, the Nokia N80 supports the new Nokia Web Browser with Mini Map, featuring a semi-transparent zoomed-out overall view of the web page, enabling users to intuitively navigate to all corners as well as see the web site as it was originally designed.

The device uses a high definition display with 352 x 416 pixels. The Nokia N80 also incorporates MPEG4 AVC decoding support for high quality video streaming.

In addition to incorporating a 3 megapixel camera with capture key for fast and stable camera activation, full-screen landscape capture utilizing the entire available high definition display, and a dedicated close-up mode switch, the Nokia N80 also features CIF video capture with inbuilt video stabilization. Users will have up to 40 MB of internal memory available, which can be expanded with a hot swap miniSD card of up to 2 GB.

The Nokia N80 also boasts a digital music player as well as stereo FM radio and support for Visual Radio, which provides listeners with interactive information channel, including information on the song and artist currently playing. Thanks to the integrated UPnP technology, transferring music between the Nokia N80 and a compatible PC is easy.

The Nokia N80, which is based on S60 3rd Edition and Symbian OS, is planned to be commercially available in the first quarter of 2006 with an estimated, unsubsidized sales price of approximately EUR 500.
