Nokia, hot off the announcement of the N79, has also pubilicized the availablity of the Nokia N85.Â Like the Nseries devices from the Finnish-handset maker, the Nokia N85 features GPS and Wi-Fi.Â However, as we all know, these useful yet power-draining capabilities can quickly drain the battery faster than you know it.
Which is why Nokia is very happy to give us some battery relief by combining the N85 with an OLED display.Â This power-saving display technology is also one that looks absolutely beautiful on-screen.Â Videos and images will pop with higher contrast and more vibrant colors, saving previous juice all at the same time.
Nokia has paired with N85 with a powerful 1200 mAh battery, meaning it will be able to web surf, take photos, and talk for longer periods of time.Â The feature list of the N85 is rich with items such as: an FM transmitter (allowing you to easily consume your digital music on any radio), a 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens, and 3G connectivity.
The N85 is advertised as Nokia’s slimmest two-way slider yet.Â More importantly, the N85 features a tri-band 3G chip, meaning it is the first S60 device to have 3G connectivity in Asia, Europe, and the United States (on AT&T).Â Up until this point, to gain global 3G access, Nokia would sell different versions of 3G handsets: a Europe/Asia version and a North American edition.
Also new to the N85 is the ability to charge over Micro-USB.Â That’s right!Â Now you can charge the N85 over the same cord that you use to hook it up to your PC or Mac for data transfer.
Nokia has included a built-in accelerometer with the N85, meaning you can switch between landscape and portrait mode.Â Also a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack doubles as a TV-Out port so you can watch videos on your TV.
