Nokia offers multimedia phones, Bluetooth devices

Mobile phone giant Nokia took the wraps off three new mobile phones, including one outfitted for multimedia communication, as well as three Bluetooth wireless network devices at the Mobile Internet Conference in Barcelona Monday.

Nokia announced one new phone for each of three categories: active, classic and the new imaging mobile phones.

The Nokia 7650 phone, the first in the imaging category, sports a built-in digital camera, a photo album, a color display, GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) and support for multimedia messaging (MMS), the company said in a news release. The digital camera and support for MMS allows users to take photos, send photos by e-mail and to combine audio, graphics and text into messages, Nokia said. The 7650 is a EGSM (Extended Global System for Mobile communication) phone and measures 114 millimeters tall by 56 millimeters wide by 26 millimeters thick and weighs 154 grams. The phone will be available in Europe, Africa and Asia and will begin shipping in the second quarter of 2002. Pricing information was not immediately available.

The second new phone of the day, the 5210, fits into the active category and offers a built-in thermometer and clock, WAP (Wireless Access Protocol), and the Xpress-on removable faceplate shell. The EGSM phone will ship in the first quarter of 2002 in Europe, Africa and Asia. The 5210 is 105.5 millimeters by 47.5 millimeters by 22.5 millimeters and tips the scales at 92 grams. Pricing was not announced.

The Nokia 6510 phone, part of the classic category, was the last phone announced Monday and offers such features as a mobile wallet, an FM radio tuner, WAP and GPRS. The 6510 also features the Xpress-on covers in five colors and weighs 84 grams. The phone measures 97 millimeters by 43 millimeters by 20 millimeters. The phone will ship in Europe, Africa and Asia in the first quarter of 2002. No pricing terms were available.

Nokia also announced three devices that use the Bluetooth wireless personal area networking protocol. The company will ship the Nokia Wireless Headset, the Nokia Wireless Car Kit and the Nokia Connectivity Card to European and Asian customers in the first quarter of 2001. All three devices employ the Bluetooth 1.1 specification. Prices were not immediately provided.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
