Nokia is introducing the Nokia N77 multimedia computer (what happened with mobile phones?) offering an optimised mobile TV experience in a compact form factor with complete Nokia Nseries functionalities.
The dedicated TV key on the Nokia N77 gives users straight access to a world of DVB-H TV. Users can set reminders to alert when a program is starting and access it at the push of a button. Through the Program Guide in the mobile TV application is possible to view program information up to seven days, browse TV channels, purchase new channels if desired and select the TV program you are interested in.
It will be possible to utilise built-in interactive service functionalities, including SMS voting for on-line real-time decisions in reality shows. The device also provides a 30 seconds replay and continue live TV watching after the replay clip.
With up to 2GB of memory and integrated stereo speakers, the Nokia N77 also features mobile music experience. The Nokia N77 offers storage of up to 1500 song tracks with support for MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+ and WMA.
Other features are the built-in 2 megapixel camera (1600 x 1200 pixels), and compatibility with 3G (WCDMA 2100 MHz), EDGE and GSM (900/1800/1900 MHz) networks.
The Nokia N77 is based on S60 3rd Edition software on Symbian OS, and is expected to start shipping during the second quarter of 2007 in countries where DVB-H services are available.
