Nokia N76 Ships

Nokia this morning began shipping the N76, one of its smarter mid-range phones. The flip-phone design pushes music and video. In a rarity for most higher-end Nokia devices, the N76 has an external display with music controls; movies and photos can be captured through either the front VGA or rear 2-megapixel cameras and edited directly from the phone before uploading directly to Flickr or synchronized with a computer. As hinted by the front camera, HSDPA mobile broadband is built in for quicker media streams and web browsing.

The phone is currently shipping in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. Most of the European customers who buy the phone will get five free downloads of Travis songs from MSN Music to show off the phone's relativvely rare support for protected Windows Media tracks. Despite the lack of North American announcements, however, the phone is a fully quad-band GSM phone and stands a chance of releasing in North America in either black or red steel.
