Nokia N8 first impressions emerge, termed evolutionary not revolutionary

24 Jun

Eldar Murtazin, the founder of Mobile Review and the guy who-gets-it-all months before phones are even announced has given his first take on the Nokia N8. And he does not seem all that impressed. While this is not a review and just some impressions, the bottom line remains that while the N8 is an excellent product in Nokia’s portfolio, it isn’t quite cut out to take on the competition. He also mentions Nokia’s plans to launch N8 variants – a 32 GB version, a stripped down camera version and another with a QWERTY keyboard. This statement from him just about sums everything:

“The Nokia N8 is a good replacement for the Nokia 5800 if you bought the latter at the beginning of the sales. Overall, it is a solution for Nokia enthusiasts who do not have experience with other OS’ or platforms. For them, the device makes a sensible choice, offers a series of improvements over its predecessors. It is an evolutionary development of the touch-sensitive phone from Nokia. However, for the market, the model doesn’t suggest any new user experience, cannot catch up with alternatives from other companies, and doesn’t have anything unique to offer.”

        Agreed it might be Nokia’s best, what remains to be seen is whether it is the best smartphone out there at that price.
