MANILA, APRIL 18, 2008 (STAR) PULSE ASIA BYTESIZE - For upwardly mobile professionals, the word “office” extends beyond the four walls of their work environment. With all the endless tasks that need to be done, these business-suited busy-bees bring their work everywhere they go. That’s why the need for gadgets that can handle multiple tasks has gone up over the years. The more features a gadget has, the more valuable it is to the common yuppie.

The Age of Navigation

Nokia reinforced its vision of combining the benefits and opportunities of the Internet with a new line-up of converged devices and services that promote collaboration and sharing.

To be launched this year, the Nokia N96, Nokia N78, Nokia 6220 classic and Nokia 6210 Navigator all exhibit different location-based and multimedia experiences from pedestrian navigation to geo-tagging and movie viewing to video and photo sharing.

The company also revealed the next step toward its Ovi Internet service environment by introducing ‘Share on Ovi,’ a personal media-sharing community that makes uploading, managing and sharing personal media through a mobile, desktop or other connected device easier.

The Nokia N96, expected to hit the market soon, is a multimedia computer optimized for video and TV. With a large 2.8” screen and 16 gigabytes of internal memory (or 40 hours of video) that supports high-quality videos in a wide range of formats, the dual-slide phone represents an exciting new chapter in mobile media.

On the other hand, the Nokia N78 is a multimedia computer that combines music, navigation and photography with the benefits of mobility. It is designed to take advantage of the new suite of Nokia services, including the Nokia Music Store, Nokia Maps, and Share on Ovi.

Nokia 6220 classic is a full-featured device that combines a 5-megapixel camera with A-GPS functionality, giving new meaning to the word “share.” High quality images and videos can be snapped, tagged, edited and shared online, phone-to-phone or even viewed on a television.

Nokia 6210 Navigator is Nokia’s first GPS-enabled mobile device with an integrated compass for pedestrian guidance. The Nokia 6210 Navigator comes with Nokia Maps 2.0 and a full voice and visual turn-by-turn guidance at no extra cost.

With all these phones’ powerful and user-friendly features, navigating the world will just be a walk in the park.
