Nokia today introduced the Nokia N93i, a compact and stylish digital camcorder and multimedia computer in one. Boasting a host of advanced features - from DVD-like quality video capture to direct video uploads - the Nokia N93i enables you to record great quality video wherever and whenever you feel inspired.
You can shoot DVD-like quality videos with the Nokia N93i thanks to its MPEG-4 VGA video capture at up to 30 frames per second, stereo audio recording and digital stabilization. The Nokia N93i also boasts a 3.2 megapixel (2048 x 1536 pixels) camera with Carl Zeiss optics, 3x optical zoom, autofocus and close-up mode. With the 1 GB miniSD card included in the standard Nokia N93i sales pack, you can capture up to 45 minutes of DVD-like quality video or up to 1250 high-quality photos.
With its slim and compact design, the Nokia N93i is now even easier to slip into your pocket. It also has a new metallic finish keymat and a mirror effect cover. The 2.4" main display of up to 16 million colors has a 160 degree viewing angle, the easy-to-use joystick provides smooth video control and there are dedicated camera keys to capture images, switch shooting mode and operate the flash quickly and easily.
Integrated into the Nokia N93i is a new personal video and photo blogging service called Vox (see below) with privacy features that let you share stories and thoughts instantly with your friends, family, neighborhood or the entire world. Select your video or photos in the gallery of your Nokia N93i and upload them directly from your device to Vox in their original size.
Once you've finished filming, shape your story while it's still on the Nokia N93i with the on-device editing capabilities. For advanced editing, the standard Nokia N93i sales pack comes bundled with Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 software, enabling you to create professional quality movies on your compatible PC. These videos can then be transferred back to your multimedia computer or burned to DVDs.
Get the popcorn out and have a communal screening of your very own blockbuster or latest photos. Simply connect the Nokia N93i to a compatible TV with the supplied video-out connectivity cable, dim the lights and enjoy the show. Or if you prefer the wireless route, use the integrated wireless LAN (WLAN) technology to connect to a compatible UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) enabled device.
The Nokia N93i is far more than just a digital camcorder - work or play, it delivers just what you need. Designed to work on WLAN, 3G (WCDMA 2100 MHz), EDGE and GSM (900/1800/1900 MHz) networks, the Nokia N93i provides mobile broadband internet access for browsing, uploading content, and sending and receiving emails, allowing you to stay connected on the move. You can also keep yourself entertained with MP3 music, podcasts, stereo FM radio or mobile TV video streaming.
The Nokia N93i, which is based on S60 3rd Edition software on Symbian OS, is expected to start shipping in volumes during the first quarter of 2007 with an estimated, pre-tax, unsubsidized sales price of approximately 600 euros.
Nokia, the world leader in mobile communications, and Six Apart, the world leader in blogging, today announced cooperation to bring Vox (www.vox.com), a free personal blogging service to the Nokia Nseries multimedia computer product range. The two companies will make it easy for people to upload video and photos, and update their blogs directly from their compatible Nokia Nseries devices to the Vox blogging service. The cooperation is an important step in making Web 2.0 mobile and enabling people to create and share their experiences with friends and family on the go. The Nokia N93i, also announced today, is the first product to include the integrated Vox service.
Vox is a free personal blogging service for sharing experiences with friends and family. Vox's rich privacy filters give members granular control over who views their stories, photos, videos or audio. Members can easily set any of five levels of privacy on any piece of content they share on Vox.
Vox offers rich media integration, including the ability to insert video, photos and web content into posts by connecting with popular web services people already use such as Amazon.com, YouTube, Flickr, Photobucket, iStockphoto, and iFilm. Generous storage - two gigabytes total uploads per month and three gigabytes for Nokia Nseries users - assures members that they never have to worry about deleting an important memory.
Doing all this from a Nokia Nseries device is easy. After registering with Vox (www.vox.com/nokia) and setting up account information in the device, Vox members are able to upload videos and full size photos to Vox directly from the camera or Image Gallery application. The first device shipping with Vox settings will be the Nokia N93i, and existing users of Nokia Nseries multimedia computers can download the settings file from www.vox.com/nokia for the following models: Nokia N70 Music Edition, N72, N73, N73 Music Edition, N80 Internet Edition, N93, N93i, and N95.
