Nokia's N95 8GB released with a Spider-Man 3 surprise
Espoo, Finland -Nokia today announced the shipping start of the Nokia N95 8GB multimedia computer. To celebrate its launch, Nokia has teamed up with Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) to offer a Nokia N95 8GB which comes pre-loaded with the full-length feature film in Europe and selected countries in Middle East and Africa region.
The movie sees Spider-Man's suit turn jet-black and enhance his powers and, in its latest incarnation, the Nokia N95 has undergone a similar transformation to emerge as the Nokia N95 8GB. The device has a sleek black cover and its enhanced powers include up to 8GB internal memory, a large 2.8 inch QVGA display and superior speakers. For the first time, full multimedia use of the two-way slide design and dedicated media keys allow users to control video on their mobile just as they would on DVD: play, pause, fast forward and rewind. With the Nokia N95 8GB, watch Peter Parker battle his demons; will he choose the seductive power of the new suit or the compassionate hero he used to be?
"The Nokia N95 8GB opens up a wealth of exciting options for film fans as they can now watch world-class movies like Spider-Man(TM) 3 whenever they want, wherever they want. Pre-loading a film with such fantastic special effects truly shows off the device's advanced capabilities. With its ground-breaking features, users can now fully appreciate the meaning of entertainment on-the-go," said Ilkka Raiskinen, Senior Vice President, Multimedia Experiences, Nokia.
The movie comes in ten languages and subtitle combinations. Part of the same range as the hugely successful Nokia N95, the Nokia N95 8GB also includes a unique Spider-Man(TM) 3 message and ring tone, wallpaper and screen saver, specially crafted for the new device. Spider-Man(TM) 3 games, ring tone and additional video clips will also be available via the Download! Catalog in selected countries.
Nokia selected Spider-Man(TM) 3 to show off the full capabilities of the device due to overwhelming demand from Nokia Nseries users. When asked which film Nokia Nseries users wanted to watch on their device, Spider-Man(TM) 3 was voted the 'most wanted movie'. The film also has huge global appeal as the #1 grossing film of 2007 at the international box office.
The device's eight gigabytes internal memory capacity means more music, more movies. DVD-like quality video capture and control allows film fanatics to create their own movies and share their creations and favorite movies with others by using the easy 'transfer to PC functions', allowing uploads to their social networking profiles and other online sites. Enhanced WiFi connectivity ensures you are connected whilst on-the-move and the assisted GPS (A-GPS) keeps you on the right path for worldwide adventure.
