Nokia N78 mobile phone - Pocket-lint


While there is nothing earth-shatteringly bad about the N78, the clumsy interface detracts from the abundance, and we mean abundance, of features this

Feature packed, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, geotagging, camera, FM transmitter

Clumsy design

The Nokia N78 is yet another phone from Nokia that Nokia fans will be happy with.

Nokia N78 review


Is this sleek mobile the only phone you need?

Classy, minimalist look ; Decent 3.2 megapixel camera ; A-GPS sat nav ; 2GB microSDcard with maps and tunes

Awkward keypad ; Rear cover feels cheap

Feature-packed smartphone with plenty to admire

What's in a number? It all depends on what the number is related to in the current circumstances.

According to popular legend, when the number belongs to a bus, you will have just missed it with several more only due to appear after a lengthy interval. If the number concerns your salary then it is never large enough to satisfy your hoped for...
