New Device by Nokia Means the End of Video Cameras?

The transformation of the cell phone from a glorified walkie-talkie into an all-in-one device shows no signs of slowing. Now, thanks to the Finnish company Nokia, your cell phone will be able to film and store up to 90 minutes of high quality digital video.

Nokia, the largest manufacturer of cellular phones, is taking digital video to the next level with its new N-93. The new device records at a rate of 30 frames per second (for comparison, traditional Hollywood films run at 15-20), so the quality is comparable to that of a DVD.

According to Anssi Vanjoki, Nokia’s Multimedia Manager, this new device will make stand-alone video cameras obsolete – and usher in the era of single devices with all necessary communication and recording capabilities. Last year (2005), Nokia sold over 100,000,000 camera phones – so Mr. Vanjoki’s confidence in the new invention is not misplaced.

As the worlds largest camera company, they will be partnering with Flickr.com, the Web’s largest on-line photo archive, to enable instant “real-time” transfer of film and images from the N93 to Flickr’s website.
