Nokia has launched the N75, the smallest “multimedia computer” that the company has yet offered and that offers special music functionality.

On the outside of the clamshell is a 1.36-inch colour screen that lets you access your music and control navigation with the buttons on the cover. The device supports MP3, M4A, AAC, eAAC+, and WMA files, and features advanced music playback features like an equaliser, playlists, and shuffle function. Synchronisation is easy with a dedicated button that updates music and playlists.

Although built-in storage is only 40MB, it is expandable to 2GB with its microSD slot; FM radio can also be listened to through the headphones or little integrated 3D stereo speakers.

The N75 also incorporates a 2MP camera with LED flash, and lets you view images on the 2.4-inch screen. It can also record and playback MPEG4 video for good-quality results.

Surfing the Internet is also facilitated thanks to the Web Browser with Mini Map that also aggregates RSS feeds for updates on the go.

The N75 is a 3G phone that also operates on EDGE and GSM, and is initially slated for release in the US before the end of the year.
