Nokia is counted in the most famous and most reliable brand all over the world. But due to some reasons the brand is lacking behind. It is trying its best to cover the market as soon as possible. Nokia released many smartphones to hit the market but couldn’t catch the market competition. Nokia has announced the new series of Nokia Lumia. It has announced Nokia Lumia 900 after the success of Nokia Lumia 800. Features are upgraded and configuration is increased then before. Here is the detail of configuration that is discussed below.
Nokia have introduced two basic entry-level mobile phone devices, called the Nokia 100 and Nokia 101 respectively. Both of these devices are using the Series 30 platform as their operating system. Generally-speaking, the Nokia 100 and Nokia 101 have similar features, except for the extra features of the Nokia 101 which has dual SIM support and a MP3 player on it. Interestingly, the Nokia 100 and Nokia 101 has a longer battery lifetime, lasting up to 25 days.
A lot of people said that the N85 is a replacement to the N82, which is one of the best mobile devices that Nokia has produced. However, they are both targeted at different markets and the N82 is still on sale and not discontinued by Nokia.
Sporting the same form factor as the N96, the N85 is a dual slider device too. Running on Symbian S60, the N85 has a very minimalist design. I liked the call and end call buttons design very much. Sliding the phone up will reveal the number pad. Although there are no seams between the keys, it is still very much usable. Slide the phone down and the screen will automatically switch landscape mode and you will find four extra buttons. These four extra buttons are music control buttons but when you play a game, the button will turn into two gaming buttons.
