Nokia N77, 6110 Navigator and 3110 entry-level phones
The new product portfolio will include the first N-series device with built-in DVB-H support, allowing watching of live TV broadcasts. The DVB-H service, unlike the network streaming of TV utilizes a separate communication channel to receive live TV broadcasts. The DVB-H service is already used in Europe and is expected to be launched in the US as well. Currently, Verizon Wireless is the only US carrier to have similar and incompatible service, but based on different broadcasting technology, called MediaFlo.
Unfortunately, the N77 is only Europe-bound as it is tri-band GSM (900/1800/1900) with EU only UMTS.
Like similar devices, N77 features a dedicated TV key to activate the DVB-H reception. It remembers the last channel you were viewing when you switched off the TV. You can also set reminders to alert you when your program is starting and access it at the push of a button. Through the Program Guide in the mobile TV application you can view program information up to seven days, browse TV channels, purchase new channels if desired and select the TV program you are interested in.
The rest of the feature set is pretty standard and includes Bluetooth, 2-mega pixel camera, POP3/IMAP with attachment support. The operating systems is again standard S60, 3rd Edition.
The devices is expected to launch commercially in Q2, 2007 and will have unsubsidized prize of 370EU ($480 USD).
