Nokia N85 and N79 hit USA

15 Dec, 2008

Some serious N-series skill sets foot on American soil, as Nokia N79 and N85 are now official in the US. The pair sure took their time to finally get US 3G sorted. Wi-Fi, GPS and a wealth of media on Symbian S60 are no news.

Available in Europe since late August, both Nokia N85 and N79 are solid all-rounders, which make a worthy upgrade option for a number of ageing N-series handsets.

Both devices boast a 5MP auto-focus shooter with Carl Zeiss optics, VGA video, FM transmitter, 3.5mm audio jack and TV out. The higher-ranking dual slider N85 is complete with an outstanding OLED screen and tri-band UMTS, while the N79 bar gets noticed for its smart Xpress-On covers.

By the way, detailed reviews of both the N79 and N85 are ready to be served on special occasions like this.

N79 is launched at $440, while N85 costs $540.
