Nokia on Monday launched the new addition to its N series mobile phone devices, Nokia N97, which enables users to lifecast. The N97 mini features Lifecasting with Ovi that will open up the next innovative chapter of personal and location-aware internet.
The mobile phone is offered in partnership with the world's largest social network, and Lifecasting with Ovi is the first application to allow publication of user's location and status updates directly to their Facebook account from the user's mobile phone home screen.
Lifecasting goes much beyond mere publication of user status, it makes for building deeper and closer connections between people. It builds new kinds of communication patterns, such as sending messages or status updates or even navigating to a friend or a place.
The new device was launched during Nokia N-Tour-Age, a showcase of Nokia's premium devices and services.
The device is aimed at the style-conscious consumer, active on social networks. The Nokia N97 mini is a small mobile computer featuring a tilting 3.2" display. It has a QWERTY keyboard and a fully customisable homescreen that gives the Nokia N97mini the uniqueness of a fingerprint
