We were able to spend a few moments with Nokia's new N Series phones, the N85 and N79. Read our first impressions.

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.

Read on to learn about the N85 and the N79.

n85 n79 vs. 6220 classic

i have been waiting for the price on the 6220 to come down a bit but now that these two came out i think i might just wait another month or two. The only thing is how does the n79 compare in size to the 6220. Spec wise you have to like the 3.5 jack and the fm transmitter. What do you think people?
