Phone Preview: Nokia N71 Phone

Yesterday marks the first day on The Nokia Phone Blog where I actually didn’t get any chance to update. So today it looks like I’ll have to do double duty.

First we’ll take a look at the Nokia N71 phone, another triband/3G Nseries flip-phone.

The Nokia N71 Phone

The N71 is basicaly a smaller, lighter N90 with an additional camera for video conferencing, a crappier screen, and support for miniSD over MMC.

Form Factor: Flip
Bands: Triband 900/1800/1900/WCDMA 2100
Weight: 139g / 5 ounces / .30 pounds
Thickness: 25.8 mm thickness
SAR value: .36 W/kg ear, .19 W/kg body (more info on SAR values and cell phone radiation here)
Battery: 970 mah
Talk time: up to 4 hours
Camera: 2 megapixel w/ flash, interior VGA camera for videoconferencing
Interface: Symbian OS 9.1
Other Features: Bluetooth, loudspeaker, expandable miniSD, visual radio, mp3/video, push to talk

It’s got your standard Symbian OS interface, and standard Symbian features – video, mp3, games, applications, etc. The displays aren’t exactly something to write home about: the main screen is a 262k color screen at a resolution of 320×420 pixels. Actually, the internal screen is quite large, both pixel-wise and overall size-wise: it’s 2.4 inches. Compare that to the Nokia N90 which has a 2.1 inch, 352×416 pixel display.

The “cool” feature on the Nokia N71 is the addition of a second VGA camera to complement the external 2 megapixel camera on the outside. Useful for videoconferencing or taking lousy quality pictures of yourself.

Other than that, there’s no WLAN/wi-fi on this phone – it’s one of the more “budget” phones on the Nseries line.

Retail price of the Nokia N71 phone: 400 euros / $492 USD
