The newest addition to Nokia's Nseries family of high-end mobile phones, namely the N78, is available now in Finland and Nokia will probably announce its launch for the rest of Europe in the next few days/weeks.
The Finnish online retailer Verkkokauppa has started selling the N78 as of yesterday (May 23), for the retail price of 448.90 Euros, meaning a bit over 700 USD. This means 100 Euros more than the price initially announced by Nokia (350 Euros) and we hope that, after the handset is officially released, it won't be that expensive. Not that it's a phone that should come as affordable, but $700 is just too much.
Anyway, back to the availability of the N78, its release in Finland first is somehow logical, since we're talking about Nokia's home country. In case you want to check out the phone's selling page from Verkkokauppa, you can access it here (in Finnish) or here (in English, translated from the original page).
Part of the new Nseries line-up for 2008, together with the N96 flagship, Nokia N78 was first unveiled at the beginning of February. Like all the Nseries phones, the N78 brings a wide range of features. Users will get Symbian S60 3.2 OS, quad-band GSM and dual-band HSDPA connectivity, a high-quality 2.4 inch TFT display with 240 x 320 pixels and 16 million colors, Wi-Fi, GPS, Nokia Maps, advanced Web capabilities, email and Instant Messaging, Media player with lots of formats supported, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, a 3.5mm audio jack, FM radio, FM transmitter, document viewer and a 3.2 Megapixel Carl Zeiss camera with auto focus, geotagging, flash and video recording.
At 113 x 49 x 15 millimeters and 101.8 grams, Nokia N78 is not among the slimmest phones on the market, but the Nseries devices are not meant to be slim anyway, they're meant to be powerful.
While the N78 should be available across Europe in a very short time, North America will probably have to wait a bit more for it. Well, the important thing is that the handset will surely go there too.
