Hands on with the Nokia N8 (video)

28 Aug

Earlier this week, Nokia invited us to get acquainted with its upcoming flagship N-series smartphone – the N8. It runs on Nokia’s new Symbian^3 OS, which lends a much smoother user interface, though in the core it really is similar to the Symbian S60 fifth edition that we have seen in the N97 and the N97 Mini.

The Nokia N8 is a multimedia powerhouse and comes with a 12.0 MP camera that can shoot videos in 720p HD resolution. For us, the killer feature on the N8 is the ability to connect a USB pen drive to the phone and play music/video off the pen drive!

Check out our brief hardware tour of the Nokia N8 below and let us know what you think.

    Definite improvement over past Nokia smartphone attempts but I fear it’s too late for Symbian at this point. Where is the compelling reason for me to get this over an Android, iPhone, or even WebOS handset?

      True. But there are many users out there (especially in countries like India) who have never used an iPhone or an Android smartphone. For them, Nokia still rules the roost and the N8 will be a hot seller.

      Forget Internet browsing capabilities or the number of apps, features like connecting a USB pen drive to the phone and playing music will be a killer feature for its prospective buyers.
