Nokia has just launched a special edition of its Nokia N73 handset exclusively for the Middle East and North Africa markets. The model is meant to celebrate the Holy month of Ramadan and also includes several applications that Arab consumers might appreciate.

The special edition Nokia N73 comes in a stylish soft white color with golden highlights over its edges and buttons. Its most impressive features that manage to truly distinguish this handset from the original model are the applications for Arab users. The handset has a collection of Azkars for the morning and the evening, an Islamic Organizer with audible alarms for the five daily prayers, a Qibla direction indicator and a Hijri calendar.

The Hajj and Umrah application provides detailed descriptions for the Hajj and Umrah, while the Ramadaniat application explains all the instructions and rules for the Holy month of Ramadan. The device proves to be even more useful, as these traditions may turn out to be quite complex and with a lot of steps to follow. The special edition Nokia N73 proves to be useful not only for those who want to make sure that they don’t forget any of these steps, but also for the younger ones who are only learning them.

Nokia has also added two Islamic e-books and a Universal Dictionary application which supports English, Arabic, Farsi, Urdu and French. Because of this, the device proves to be highly educational, without losing one bit of its initial charm.
