The N8 will feature a TI 680MHz processor with 256MB of RAM and a
decent 16GB of flash memory. The main camera will have a 12-megapixel
sensor with Carl Zeiss optics and a Xenon flash (they really didn’t
spare any expense, that camera is nicer than some point-and-shoot
digital cameras we’ve seen). It’ll have a VGA forward facing camera too,
for video conferencing.
It will have a 3.5-inch OLED screen. No slide out keypad or keyboard
of any kind. Nokia is going all-virtual with the input on this device,
which could be a first for them. The phone will ship with Symbian^3,
the updated mobile OS from Nokia. Unfortunately,
Symbian^3 reviewed poorly in the early hands-on from the Russian website
– but you may want to try it yourself.
The phone will have a HDMI-out port. Nokia’s press release promises
"HD-quality” video. You’d imagine that if it had a HDMI port, then it
would be at least 720p capable, but Nokia doesn’t explicitly say that.
Other features includes GPS with free navigation thanks to Ovi Maps,
It’s set to come out in Q3 2010. Nothing yet on being carried by any
carriers, but I wouldn’t count on this phone being carried by any – if
Nokia’s past history is any indication. It will run on GSM bands.
Following the announcement of the all
new Nokia N8, Nokia have now released a series of videos to get your
taste buds flowing.
Asphalt 5 has been ported to S3 ... this might be interesting ... but ... the iphone isn't a very good phone . i mean look at htc HD 2 . better processor than iphone's one but it still can't beat it . the fact is that it doesn't matter how good a phone is , if it won't have many apps and stuff for the operating system. let's hope that the new symbian 3 will be more successful than the previous one. maybe an n-gage 3.... who knows ...
I'm not crazy about the looks. Its not ugly, but I like the look of the X6 more. Id also prefer a slide out qwerty keyboard. Good to see Nokia has stepped it up with Symbian 3, but they're still not blowing the competition out of the water.
