Nokia Camera Cell Phones: Finnishing First
Just as the Civil War in the US was coming to a close in 1865, a Finnish wood-pulp mill was being established in the town of Tampere, powered by the rapids of the Tammerkoski River. But the Tammerkoski Rapids proved insufficient to meet the power needs of the pulp mill, and the mill moved to the banks of the Nokianvirta River in the town of Nokia. The river and the town both took their names from the Finnish word for sable, and the Nokia camera cell phone of today is to the world of cell phones what the sable coat is to the world of haute couture: a very desirable item.
The Nokia Corporation of today began as a combination of the Nokia Wood Mills, the nearby Finnish Rubber Works, and the Finnish Cable Works, which was a manufacturer of telegraph and telephone cables. The three Finnish companies had operations crossing a broad spectrum of industries, and when they finally fused into the Nokia Corporation in 1967, the electronics division of the cable division was spun off and began producing telecommunications devices, and by the 1990s telecommunications had become its only business.
By narrowing its focus to telecommunications, Nokia was able to take full advantage of the worldwide cell phone craze which began in the mid 1990s, and that success reached its zenith in May 2007, when Nokia announced that it had shipped its two hundred millionth Nokia 100 cell phone, first introduced in 2003. But the phone responsible for establishing Nokia as a force to be reckoned with in the cellular phone market was the 1994 2110, which was so popular that Nokia kept it in production for, a practice almost unheard of today.
The first of the Nokia camera cell phones did not arrive until 2003, when the 6600, with its VGA camera making it the most sophisticated Nokia device in history. The 6600 could record video clips, with sound, between nine and twenty-seven seconds long, and can support MP3 and gaming software. The 6600 was so popular that even though the more advanced 6630 and 6680 Nokia camera cell phones followed, the 6600 was still in production after three years.
But the standard bearer for all Nokia camera cell phones is, without a doubt, the slider N95 Nokia camera cell phone. Announced in late 2006, and released to an eagerly awaiting public through Nokia's stores in New York and Chicago in March of 2007, the N95 Nokia camera cell phone is a smart phone with an amazing five megapixel camera. Am updated, unbranded version of the N95 Nokia camera cell phone which supports the AT&T (formerly Cingular) wireless protocols is expected in 2008.
The M95 Nokia camera cell phone is as close to a pocket PC as one is likely to get. It has both FM and Visual Radio. Its music player handles a variety of files, including MP3, RealAudio, MIDI SP-MIDI, and True Tones. Its built in speakers eliminate the need for headphones, but its 3.5 mm jack will work with any standard headphone set. It can play video on its RealPlayer application and it can also send video by way of a composite cable to television. It also has built-in Bluetooth and WiFi, and can access the Internet with a web browser capable of displaying full web pages.
The N95 Nokia camera cell phone is just one of the more than one hundred Nokia phones currently available, so there is sure to be a Nokia phone with all the features you need!
