Nokia just introduced the Nokia N93i, a compact digital camcorder and multimedia computer in one. Boasting DVD-quality video capture and direct video uploads, the unit can shoot at up to 30 frames per second,
The Nokia N93i also features a 3.2-megapixel (2048 x 1536 pixels) camera with Carl Zeiss optics, 3x optical zoom, autofocus and close-up mode. With the 1GB 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 1,250 high-quality photos.
The 2.4-inch main can display up to 16 million colors and has a 160 degree viewing angle. A joystick provides smooth video control and there are dedicated camera keys to capture images, switch shooting mode and operate the flash quickly and easily.
In case you want to add a little personalization into the mix, the bpersonal video and photo blogging service called Vox is integrated right into the unit. 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.
If you can’t wait to see yourself on DVD, just connect the Nokia N93i to a compatible TV with the supplied video-out connectivity cable, dim the lights and enjoy the show. If you’re in too much of a viewing frenzy to comprehend cables, the integrated wireless LAN (WLAN) technology can connect the N93i to a compatible UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) enabled device.
The only downside: Pricing was only available in euros, so it looks like you won’t find it on shelves anytime soon.
