Nokia N70 mobile phone


Nokia's N70 handset seems to be the mobile phone of choice for many company's to show off their latest applications, but has the phone released at the end of last year really won over our hearts. Pocket-lint has been living with the handset for the...

Big colourful screen, plenty of features

It's very large, sliding camera cover annoying, for the size we would expect a QWERTY keyboard

Like the 6330 the N70 certainly has become the next all round handset that companies use to send out product demos on. In the last 6 months we've had over five in the office with different applications.

Nokia N70 review


Watch TV on Nokia's sleek smartphone

Symbian S60 operating system ; Sophisticated looks

Disappointing photos ; Poor sound quality

The N70 looks good, but pictures and sound are both inferior to other models on the market.

The Music Pack, designed to boost Nokia's existing phones, arms the N70 for battle with Sennheiser PX100 headphones and a 256MB MMC card

The best 3G smartie you can buy but, despite bumper extras, it wasn't born for music

Nokia N70. 2 MP camera possibilities


The second half of 2005 will pass under the badge of 2 MP cameras that will be integrated into both phones and smartphones/communicators. And even now integrated cameras in phones really influence the sales of low-end digital cameras. In a year or two...

This is the bets model among smartphones/communicators in the quality of the pictures and functionality (an active slider, flash, the second camera) being inferior only to the N90. That is an undoubted leader of the candybar smartphone segment. Very...

Nokia N70


The second goal following the first one is described below. While segmenting and placing the devices on the price line it is important for the company to explain to the consumer how the price forms. Why one smartphone costs 300 USD and another one is...

As we see, the improvements are not revolutionary but still allow setting a higher price for the device. The current model line won't be enough for filling the whole price diapason evenly. And we will see many new announcements by Nokia in the nearest...

Nokia N70 3G Phone Review


The second installment of the Nokia Nseries to hit our shores, the N70, is probably the more sedate offering of the premium trio.

The build quality on the N90 was high class and the N70 is no different.

We had a few teething problems with the video calling and close-ups with the camera but nothing major.

The N70 is the Rolls Royce version of the 6680. How can it fail? 3G Total Score 89%     Nokia N70 3G Phone Review The second installment of the Nokia Nseries to hit our shores, the N70, is probably the more sedate offering of the premium...

A family photo lab fused with a phone is what makes the sleek Nokia N70 so appealing. A 2 Mega Pixel camera with 20x digital zoom combined with Nokia XpressTransfer software allows you to create slideshows of your photos as they happen and upload them...
