The N82 features a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, Xenon flash, Carl Zeiss optics, inbuilt A-GPS satellite navigation system, Wi-Fi and HSDPA Internet connectivity.
The A-GPS is accompanied by the Nokia Maps application, which contains 15 million points of interest and offers directions both in the UK and abroad.
Similar to the iPhone, the N82 also features an orientation sensor that rotates the user interface between horizontal and portrait mode. Users can also access both the Nokia Music Store and N-Gage services via the handset.
Nokia head of Nseries Cameras Satu Ehrnrooth said: "The evolution of camera capabilities in mobile devices has been extremely fast over the past years.
“With the Nokia N82 we have reached such a superior level in image quality, speed and ease of use that not only does it outperform any other cameraphone on the market, but it’s also a very credible alternative for single purpose digital still cameras.”
The N82 will be available in the UK within the next two months and comes with a recommended retail price of £317, but it’s also expected to be free on selected contracts.
