Nokia 6682 unveiled

Nokia 6682Today at the world's largest annual photo imaging convention, the 2005 Photo Marketing Association show (PMA), Nokia unveiled its newest imaging device, the tri-band (GSM 850/1800/1900MHz) Nokia 6682 smartphone. Featuring a classic design accented by bright stainless steel trim, a 1.3 megapixel image sensor, a color screen displaying over 262,000 colors, integrated LED flash and Nokia's exclusive XpressPrint printing solution, the Nokia 6682 imaging smartphone is among the most advanced imaging phones for the Americas market. Besides high-quality photography, the Nokia 6682 imaging smartphone supports a wide range of productivity tools, such as always-on e-mail delivered over high-speed EDGE networks, office document viewers, upgraded synchronization for PC users, and the optional Nokia Wireless Keyboard. The Nokia 6682 imaging smartphone, designed for the Americas market, is expected to be available during the 2nd quarter of 2005.

Image capture, printing and sharing made easy
Behind the active slide that covers and protects the camera lens while closed, and rapidly activates the imaging function when opened, is a 1.3 megapixel imaging sensor that can capture both high-quality still images and up to one hour of video. Standard video and image editing applications that can add black & white or sepia-tone effects among others, allow users to customize the captured content before sharing them with friends and family.  Image printing has been simplified with Nokia's XpressPrint solution, which enables connection to a wide range of compatible printers and photo kiosks using Bluetooth technology, with the hot-swappable reduced-size MMC card, or via industry-standard PictBridge connectivity. PictBridge connectivity makes it simple for users to print photos on a compatible printer via a USB cable without needing to use a PC. Images can also be shared via wireless e-mail, MMS or uploaded over the air to an online web album using the Nokia 6682 imaging smartphone's high-speed EDGE connectivity.

For users wanting to share their experiences with the world, the Nokia 6682 imaging smartphone also supports the newest release of Nokia Lifeblog. This unique application allows users to transform their Nokia 6682 imaging smartphone into an electronic multimedia diary that organizes images, videos and messages into an easy-to-follow searchable timeline. Lifeblog information can be easily uploaded over the air, without the need of a PC, to a Nokia Lifeblog compatible online blog provider such as Six Apart's TypePad service.

"The Nokia 6682 imaging smartphone represents an optimized balance between the joy of capturing and sharing high-quality images and the satisfaction of staying productive and connected while on the go," said Nigel Rundstrom, vice president of Multimedia for Nokia. "Since helping to pioneer the smartphone category almost nine years ago, Nokia has amassed unparalleled experience in not only converging popular functions into a mobile device, but in making those functions simple, powerful and enjoyable to use."

A powerful platform for productivity and fun
While the Nokia 6682 smartphone offers a wide array of high quality imaging features, it also doubles as a serious productivity tool. The e-mail application offers push notification when new messages have been received, and included document viewers easily handle a variety of common e-mail attachment types. Information access is simplified with an integrated multimode browser that supports both wireless Internet content as well as conventional HTML content for a desktop-like experience. The optional Nokia Wireless Keyboard, which connects to the Nokia 6682 imaging smartphone using Bluetooth technology, offers a full QWERTY keyboard in a compact foldable unit, and makes writing e-mails, composing documents using optional office application software and browsing the Internet faster and more convenient. The Nokia 6682 imaging smartphone also handles synchronization of contacts, calendar and to-do lists for PC users.

Built on the world's leading smartphone platform, Series 60, the Nokia 6682 imaging smartphone can support a large, and ever-expanding, library of fun and useful applications. Thousands of Series 60 applications, offering synchronization, gaming, time management, entertainment and more are available for download from many operator websites and from the Nokia Americas Software Market at http://americas.softwaremarket.com. A number of applications are standard on the Nokia 6682 imaging smartphone including an enhanced MP3/AAC player application that takes advantage of the expandable reduced-size MMC memory and stereo audio capability of the device. This allows the Nokia 6682 imaging smartphone to double as a powerful MP3/AAC player, complete with intuitive controls and the ability to create custom playlists, so users can take their music collection with them without dealing with multiple devices. The Nokia 6682 imaging smartphone also supports the mobile music solution for operators that Nokia and Loudeye announced last week.
