Finnish mobile handset maker Nokia has released the Nokia 7710 widescreen multi-media smart-phone with pen input.

The handset has a touch screen with 65,536 colours and includes an internet browser, an integrated music player with stereo audio, video features such as playback, streaming and recording, a mega-pixel camera with 2-x digital zoom and FM radio with Visual Radio client.

The model works over GSM/GPRS/EGPRS 900/1800/1900 networks, with shipments in Europe planned to begin in the first quarter of 2005.

The Nokia 7710 has support for push e-mail based on a Smartner solution, VPN client, free user memory of up to 90 MB and 128 MB on the included MultiMediaCard (MMC), an on-screen keyboard and handwriting recognition. The model runs on the Symbian OS. The connectivity options for the model include a Pop-Port connector with USB and Bluetooth wireless technology for data transfer and PC synchronisation.

Using a moblog client, bloggers can upload images and text to their blog. With PhotoBase and drawing board applications, users can write or draw on top of the images they have taken with the phone.

While using the Visual Radio service, listeners can see information on the song and artist currently playing on the radio or participate in competitions. The pre-installed e-book reader makes it possible to purchase or download e-books from the retail site
