Review of Nokia N79

Designed in a barfy, lurid lime green finish, and the entertainment-focused candybar.

Replacing the N78, it will feature a 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, and dual LED-flash.

For those fearful of a colour clash with their outfits, Nokia kindly bundles in three different colour covers backed by selectable phone themes to make sure everything is just so. Cunningly, the onscreen colours change automatically when the covers are clipped. And that’s magic.

Elsewhere on the multimedia front will be an FM transmitter, with direct access to the Nokia Music Store, power for up to 24 hours of music playback plus 3.5mm headset connector and dedicated music keys for non-stop music enjoyment.

Battery life for pop-picking music lovers is a little less at 24 hour-tastic, with Nokia Maps 2.0 and a 4GB microSD card bundled with the package.

Taking advantage of that GPS, Nokia has also bundled in Nokia Maps 2.0 and there is a 4GB microSD card with support up to 8GB rather than having the memory built-in.

The N79 will knock out for around €350 (£279), with the N85 setting you back €450 (£358).
