Nokia N79


Nokia's N79 looks good if you prefer a conventional handset that doesn't skimp on features.

Nokia N79


Packed to the rafters with everything you'd expect on a high-end device, the Nokia N79 is an impressive offering. As you'd find on a high-end device, there's GPS (with Nokia Maps preinstalled), the N-Gage gaming interface, Wi-Fi, HSDPA, TV out and an...

A fully featured mobile in all aspects

Cheap build quality with quirky keys

One quirky feature now popping up on most Nokia handsets is the slide keypad lock switch. Although in theory this seems like a good idea because you can choose when to lock the device, it’s something that’s easily forgotten. In fact, it’s so...

Nokia N79 review


Nokia impresses with a slick and stylish mobile phone

5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens ; 16m colour screen ; A-GPS with Nokia Maps, 4GB microSD card with maps and tunes ; FM radio transmitter ; 'smart' covers ; Wi-Fi ; HSDPA connectivity ; Good quality music player ; 3.5mm headphone socket ; S60...

Awkward keypad ; Small internal memory

Smaller slicker and better featured upgrade to the N78, with swappable covers too

We review the Nokia N79 – a great party phone for social types from the Nseries multimedia lineup

Awesome camera ; Good looking ; Decent price ; User-friendly features

Difficult navigation ; No Qwerty keyboard

The Nokia N79 is certainly a handset for socialties. It may not feature all the hottest features, but it certainly does well

Nokia - N79


The N series from Nokia includes a number of very high end, all singing, all dancing phones. The N79 is a little more sedate than that, with a solid set of specifications which don't quite approach ...

There is a lot packed into the N79 and it is encased in a neat and tidy phone that is easy to carry around. If you don't want the latest touchscreen technology, then the N79 has a lot to offer.

Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte Review


Overall I feel that my conclusion would be very different if at this point I could tell you that the Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte comes with all the features and functions listed in the review and cost only £250 however I can't and for that reason you may be...

Nokia N79 Active


A-GPS tracking and a new version of the Nokia Sports Tracker application - available simultaneously with first shipments of the device - spur you to record and publish your favourite routes and fitness data online.

The included app. And accessories make this the ideal active device, enhanced by its connectivity options.

The AGPS has some trouble connecting and the Sports Tracker app crashes on occasion.

Nokia N79 smartphone


Nokia's smallest N-series phone yet packs in 5Mp camera, A-GPS, N-Gage gaming and an FM transmitter.

The N79 seems to have followed the N78 with almost indecent haste, which is sure to irritate some, but the advantages are obvious - 5 megapixel camera, increased memory and battery life, plus N-Gage games. It's well worth getting, but if you take the...
