Haven’t we seen you somewhere before? Er, yes, yesterday in fact. Yup, just a day after leaked shots revealed (almost) all, Nokia has given us full confirmation of the new N82’s long list of capabilities.Something of a mini-N95, it packs a heady cocktail of 5mp autofocus camera, DVD-like video recording, HSDPA, Wi-Fi and AGPS for navigation – all neatly tucked into a 2.4in screened candybar for our mobile convenience.Nokia’s media monkeys have been hard at work tweaking the system so that the camera now launches faster than the snail-paced N95. While they were at it they’ve added a video-out multimedia slideshow feature for piping pics to your telly. Fame at last.Also new in this model is a proper Xenon flash borrowed from Sony Ericsson (hoorah!) and an accelerometer nabbed straight from the iPhone to automatically revolve the screen as you turn – never will we tire of this feature.Music credibility is retained with an FM tuner, a bundled 2GB microSD and a 3.5mm headphone jack for slipping in your Sennheisers. It’ll also play nice with the Nokia Music Store and the new N-Gage downloads. Anything else? Yes, our feature craving friend, there’s now one-touch uploading of video and pics to ‘online communities’ (YouTube, Flickr and the like) for speedy sharing of your multimedia masterpieces. Now don’t bother us for a while, we’ve got to get our reviewing hat on to take one of these for a spin.Essentials Nokia N82 Price: £375 SIM free On sale: November Contact: Nokia Related stories: Nokia N82 leaks online New Nokia 8800s are works of Arte Sony Ericsson’s new Walkman wonder phones
