I have been using the Nokia N8 for the better part of this week. The phone will be launched in India next week for an MRP of Rs 26,295. While I pen my thoughts about the device (I’m aiming for Monday to publish the review), I thought it would be a good idea to share a video I shot with the device while watching a Leander Paes and Sania Mirza play last night. Unfortunately, they lost but I could shoot some of the best gameplay of the match. ‘Nuff about tennis, now you tell me what you think about the N8’s video recording capabilities?

Hands on with the Nokia N8 (video)

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.

Nokia N8 launching on September 20?

17 Aug

Many of our readers are looking forward to Nokia’s N8 smartphone for its 12.0 MP camera and new UI. Nokia has not announced the launch date for the phone that would decide the future of Symbian, but we have known for a long time that it will be sometime in September. Now, UK’s online retailer, Expansys, has come up with a date – September 20. We have a feeling that the India launch of the N8 should be before that, but at least we know it won’t be later than September 20!

We will keep our eyes peeled for more clues and official info about the N8 launch in India.
