Nokia 7373 - Future phone


Nokia 7373
 

Nokia 7373

06 September 2006
Written by Mike Meers

The second of three handsets announced by Nokia a couple of days ago in Espoo, Finland is the Nokia 7373. The 7373 is an upgraded version of the 7370 – it shares a similar external design (and the same swivel form factor) but the internals vary greatly. The 7373 has a 2mpx digital camera, 2” 240 x 320 pixel TFT LCD @ 262,144 colours, microSD memory card slot and 32MB internal memory, Push-To-Talk, stereo speakers, Bluetooth and EDGE data support.

One of the biggest upgrades for the 7373 handset is the 2mpx digital camera. The 7370 only had a 1.3mpx digital camera so and the step-up to 2mpx is welcomed with open arms in my books! The camera has an 8x digital zoom and unfortunately it looks like there is no dedicated flash light. The camera has video recording support in 3GPP format.

The 2” LCD is your regular Smartphone at QVGA 240 x 320 pixels and 262,144 colours. The handset comes with a Series 40 interface and full-screen viewfinder for the 2mpx camera, which should give the display a workout.

The 32MB of internal memory should suffice for some, but I expected at least 128MB of internal memory. This is a step-up from the 7370 though, which only had 10mb of internal memory and no external memory card support. A 128MB microSD memory card is included in the sales package with the card slot supporting up to 2GB cards.

The 7373 has a Stereo FM radio tuner and twin stereo speakers. The handset is rich in multimedia functionality with an integrated music player supporting MP3/AAC/M4A/eAAC+/AAC+ formats, and a 3GPP streaming video player. The ring tones on the 7373 can be in the format of MP3, SpMidim AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, MIDI, or a video ring tone. The ‘real-tone’ formats like MP3 and AAC will showcase the abilities of the twin stereo speakers.

As always the handset comes with SMS/EMS, MMS, and e-mail messaging abilities with T9 predictive text. With GPRS and EDGE data protocols downloading MMS/e-mail messages and browsing WAP sites will be seamless.

The 7373 will come in two different styles – powder pink for the girls or the more masculine bronze black. Each handset has tribal markings imprinted on the front and back for an exotic feel.

Note: The ‘third’ L’Amour collection handset is actually just a re-designed version of the 7360, which carries the same model number and internal specifications – the only change is the new powder pink casing. (
