The new Nokia phone announced today at CeBIT takes the camera part of “camera phone” very seriously. The 7610 contains a 4x zoom, 1152 x 864 resolution camera – and its Movie Director application lets users edit video and add music on the move.
The phone comes with Nokia’s new Lifeblog software allowing owners to record their every thought and detail about their life and then upload it to the internet. I know someone here who’ll be very excited about that.
Also unveiled today was the Image Album – a 20gb hard drive that will download images and video from compatible Nokia phones. To show them on a TV screen or other display, Nokia will be launching the Image Viewer SU-5, which handily has a remote control. Juha Putkiranta, president of Nokia’s Imaging Business Unit, said: “Mobile imaging is on an explosive growth path.” It’s obvious from these new devices that Nokia are taking imaging very seriously indeed and don’t just regard it as a gimic.
