Nokia N73 Smartphone Review and Video

Nokia N73 Smartphone

PhoneArena reviews the Nokia N73 multimedia phone.

The N73 is a multimedia-centric device and as a smartphone it can expand its abilities with additional applications, which is a huge advantage over the rival models from other manufacturers – the K800 from SonyEricsson for example. It is one of the best cameraphones on the market now with its 3-megapixels and auto-focus lens by Carl Zeiss, and produces images even better than the Nokia’s flagship phone – the N93. Although its music player’s interface is not the most comfortable to use, it offers good options for sorting, but unfortunately the sound from the stereo speakers lacks quality for a portable audio system. Overall, the N73 is very good device, and the Symbian S60 OS justifies the bulky size.

Nokia N73 features a 2.4 inch TFT display, 3.2MP digital camera, 42MB memory, miniSD slot, Bluetooth, EDGE, an FM tuner, and USB connectivity. Watch the video after the jump!
