Nokia announced two brand new N Series phones today. Phone Scoop was able to sit down and play with them for a few moments. Neither was final hardware, unfortunately, but they were close enough for us to develop some strong first impressions.
Both phones carry the torch of the N Series forward with solid spec lists and hardware. They each include S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2, which is the latest version of the S60 platform.
GPS, Wi-Fi, tri-band 3G, 5 megapixel cameras, FM radios / transmitters, video support, dual LED flashes, 3.5mm headset jacks, and stereo Bluetooth are all on board.
