The N76 comes with multimedia keys on the top under the external, 1.4-inch, 160x128 display for controlling music without opening the phone. The N76 plays back MP3, AAC, MIDI and WAV formats. The internal display is 2.4-inch QVGA. The N76 is a smartphone running Series 60 3rd Edition.

Other features of the N76 include a 2 megapixel camera, 26mb of internal memory, a microSD/TransFlash memory card slot with support for cards up to 2gb, quad-band GSM, GPRS, EDGE, as well as 3G UMTS/WCDMA. Connectivity comes in the form of Bluetooth 2.0.

Battery life is rated at around 2.75 hours of talk or 8.25 days of stand by. Less than 3 hours of talk time is not particularly good, but this is the slimmest phone from Nokia yet, so we'll go easy on them this time.

The N76 is expected to be available around the first quarter of 2007, retailing at 390 Euro (Rs. 22,500 approximately).
