Live pictures of what seems to be the most impatiently awaited phone recently leaked on the Symbian-freak website. This is the largest leakage of information about Nokia N82 - the first 5 megapixel cameraphone with xenon flash by the Finnish-based company. Strangely enough the pictures are made in sunny Dubai instead of the numb with cold Finland.
Featuring an enormously large list of extras Nokia N82 is surely destined to quickly become a common favorite, once it hits the shelves. It has it all - Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G and all niceties of a fully functional S60 smartphone. Even the N-gage gaming application and the Music store are included. Furthermore there is a nice improvement with the addition of auto-screen rotation. It works in almost every part of the phone's user interface, putting the screen into landscape mode once the phone is turned to its side. The controversial multimedia key is once again to be seen here and multimedia menu is identical to the one found in Nokia N81 and Nokia N95 8GB.
The 5 megapixel camera with Xenon flash
Nokia N82 is equipped with 128MB of RAM memory which should provide for very good performance. The 132MB of internal storage memory in combination with the microSD card slot make sure that the handset will always have plenty of memory for saving its 5 megapixel photos. Luckily there is also a sample photo so we can see what they will look like. As a first impression we have to say that the photo processing Nokia N82 applies reminds us more of the one of Nokia N73 rather than the one of Nokia N95. The picture is rather too sharp with no visible traces of the noise-reduction, which we see in Nokia N95.

We are unable to provide any information regarding Nokia N82's availability or pricing but we expect Nokia to shed some light on the matter in the coming weeks.
