No real surprise here, but the Nokia N82, a flagship Nseries device, has won the TIPA(Technical Image Press Association) award for the best mobile imaging device in Europe. This is quite an accomplishment, as even though living here you would not see it, but there are quite a few 5 megapixel camera phones across the pond. Several are very good at replacing that traditional digital camera,
A number of factors and features are considered when giving out this award, and it takes some serious spec sheets to make this award. Things that the N82 does that put it over the top were the ability to upload photos you take with the N82 directly to Flickr, Youtube, and Ovi Share. Not only does the N82 take great pictures, but also can take VGA resolution videos at 30FPS. The camera utilizes a Carl Zeiss lens, to make this thing a real winner.
The N82 has many other features as well. These features include TV out, WiFi, HSDPA(across seas only for now), A-GPS, and geotagging. Geotagging marks images using the location from the GPS, to let people know where you were when you snapped the photo.
