Nokia N80 Internet Edition
Having previously released its N80 as a general-purpose smartphone, Nokia today unveiled a new version targeted specifically at cellphone users who depend on Internet utilities as often as phone calls. The N80 Internet Edition follows Nokia's earlier slider design but improves its usefulness for online communication. A larger 2.1-inch, 352x416 display fits more data onscreen at once. Software functions are also greatly expanded. The N80 Internet Edition supports VoIP calls through third-party software such as Skype and ships with a suite of tools including Yahoo Go for instant messaging and Flickr photo gallery uploads, Amazon Shopper, and a MobiPocket eBook reader. Connection options remain as extensive as before and include Bluetooth, EDGE mobile broadband, quad-band GSM, and WiFi. Nokia's updated phone should go on sale during September with prices determined by carrier service plans. See full photos of the new N80 after the jump.
