Finally an NSeries that fits for the youth at least

Nokia has officially announced the launch of the N79 handset in the UK. The new entertainment focused candybar handset, will be similar to the N85, also announced today, although come with a more stylised focus. For those worried about matching their handset with their outfit when they hit the streets, three smart covers are included in every box, with the ability to change the theme’s, as you might expect, accordingly.

Replacing the N78, it will feature a 5 Megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, geotagging and dual LED-flash. Elsewhere on the multimedia front will be an FM Transmitter, with direct access to the Nokia Music Store, power for up to 24 hours of music playback plus 3.5mm headset connector and dedicated music keys for non-stop music enjoyment.

Taking advantage of that GPS, Nokia has also bundled in Nokia Maps 2.0 and there is a 4GB microSD card with supports up to 8GB rather than having memory built in. The new Nokia handset is expected to be available next month.
