Nokia this week unveiled a whole new series of high-end phones with bleeding-edge features. More than just three new phones, "Nseries" will be an ongoing series of phones featuring the latest technology. Unlike other recent attempts at high-end sub-brands, Nseries isn't about luxury or fashion - these phones are about practical quality and features. In other words, they're aimed squarely at the gadget-freak crowd.
The new features debuting in the first Nseries phones include 2 megapixel cameras, CIF video capture, ultra-high-resolution displays, and hard drives, among others. Going forward, Nseries is the line where Nokia will introduce other new technologies, before migrating those features down into more mass-markets models.
In addition to high-end features, the Nseries will also include high-end quality in certain models, including Carl Zeiss lenses and stainless steel casings.
Nokia introduced the Nseries at "Destination Multimedia", a lavish event in Amsterdam. Held in a converted factory building, the event included a live performance by Alicia Keys. Nokia brought about 200 journalists from around the world to this exclucsive event. Clearly they take the launch of the Nseries seriously.
