Though the hardware remains the same as the N80, the Nokia N80ie brings some nice software upgrades that enhance the Web experience of this smart phone.
The Nokia N80ie is largely like its predecessor, the N80, keeping the same hardware but adding some nice software upgrades to enhance the Web experience of the smart phone. The N80ie now includes a download client that provides an easy way to get new apps on the handset. In addition, there are shortcuts for Yahoo Go, Gizmo VoIP, F-Secure, and other programs preloaded on the device for easy download. We were able to quickly and easily download several of the apps using T-Mobile service. Similar to the rest of the Nokia N series, the N80ie also features multimedia capabilities, including a 3-megapixel camera, a built-in music player, and an FM tuner. The quad-band device also has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and PIM functionality. The N80ie is available now and costs $499.99 for an unlocked version.
