More Nokia Rumors Abound (N79, N85, 5800 Tube)

June 11, 2008 in Nokia Phone News

A couple of potentially new Nokia devices have been spotted on Flickr, including a possible N79, N85, and XpressMedia 5800 “Tube.”

The Nokia Tube...maybe.

Nokia N79, N85, Tube

So the Nokia N79′s a candy bar that looks similar to the N82. It has a fairly normal keypad (not counting the lack of any vertical separation between the keys), a decent-sized screen, and secondary camera. Of note is the placement of the Multimedia key – it’s been pushed over to the left side.

While the N96 is what I’d call an N81 and N95 put together, cramming every possible feature of both phones into one powerhouse of a device, the rumored N85 looks to be what you’d get if the N81 and N95 only met halfway. Gizmodo refers to the N85 as the “N96 lite” and I’d have to concur. Like the N95 and N96, the N85 is a dual-slide phone, featuring some kind of high-powered camera complete with Carl Zeiss optics.

The Tube (also referred to as the 5800 XpressMedia) will be Nokia’s first attempt at a phone powered by the S60 touch interface. Rumored to have a 3.2 megapixel camera with more Carl Zeiss action for your pleasure. For more on the S60 touch interface, see this video:

Either way, the 5800/Tube feels like another dose of “too little, too late.”
