Nokia N79 Released SIM Free UK – N79 N-Series Nokia


The new N79 N-Series phone has now been launched as a SIM Free mobile phone in the UK, consumers can now gain this new N-Series handset without having to sign a contract agreement or be tied to any one network.

The Nokia N79 SIM Free phone is unlocked to all UK networks so consumers can simply insert their existing SIM card to reatin their current mobile number, account details and any saved contacts.

The N-Series range of multimedia mobile phones from Nokia has expanded to include the Nokia N79, an upgraded version of the previous N78 with some new technology and features but a similar design.

The Nokia N79 features GPS with GeoTagging which allows users to take pictures wherever they may be and tag their location on a map as well as fix the picture to that location, this way the user can build up a database of visited locations for future reference.

The N79 offers a better camera than the N78, this has been upgraded from a 3 megapixel to a 5 megapixel lens to fall in line with current models like the Nokia N96 and Nokia N85, the biggest difference between the N79 and the two aforementioned models is that it is a candy bar design not a sliding phone.

A new feature to the N79 over the N78 is the ability to personlise the exterior which in turn changes the display, when a user simply swaps the colour of the back casing of the Nokia N79 the handset automatically adapts the theme colour of the main display to match so not only will your phone match your mood on the outside but when the phone is used the backlight and theme will match as well.

Browsing the internet on the Nokia N79 is how it should be and not the scaled down ‘mobile’ version, users can surf full html pages and select an area on the page to then zoom into for more detail so rather than a lack lusted text based WAP surfing experience the user can view the internet as it was intended.

The Nokia N79 also features Nokia Maps, a service that allows users to view maps of over 150 countries which can be searched by addresses, landmarks and points of interest, users can even access phone numbers for locations where available before the Nokia N79 plans a route to the destination on screen.

The N79 has a neat little trick in that it has an integrated FM transmitter, this allows the user to transmit their music from the phone to an in-car radio or standard FM radio to listen to their favourite tracks, users simply choose a frequency and then tune in the radio to that frequency, so long as they are within two to three meters of the recieving device the music will play continuously until the link is broken.

The Nokia N79 is a 3G enabled mobile phone, this means that it is subject to the fast download speeds available to these type of handsets, users can download new mobile content such as ringtones and games or acces the Nokia Music Store to search from thousands of music titles. 3G also allows for streaming media such as news and sports headlines, movie trailers and music videos as well as facilitating face to face video calling with compatible handsets.

Thankfully, Nokia have also included a standard 3.5mm jack socket so that users can choos eto use their own headphones rather than the supplied, this has been a real complaint for many users of new mobile phones and Nokia have hit the nail on the head this time.

The differences betwen the Nokia N79, Nokia N85 and Nokia N96 lay mostly in the overall design of the phones, both the N96 and N85 are slide phones with the N96 even featuring a rear built-in stand for watching movies, the Nokia N79 offers a smaller screen but is also far lighter and more portable than its two larger cousins, add to this a lens cover for the high specification camera and the personalisation options and the N79 makes for an attractive and functional device.
