Nokia N8 Overview
The Nokia N8 can be likened to the second coming, not because its necessarily salvation in a phone, but more so because its taken a really, really long time to get here. Since it was officially announced back in April 2010, with leaks out in September 2009, weve all been waiting for Symbian Foundations follow up to S60 V5, and Nokias follow up to the Nokia N97. Finally, here it is, in all its anodized aluminum glory, with a 12MP camera with Xenon flash and an OLED screen, the new Nokia flagship phone for 2010/2011 – the Nokia N8.
In the box, as well as the phone itself there is a charger, a mini HDMI to HDMI connector, two micro USB cables (one female USB, one male USB), a set of Headphones power charger and some literature on the phone. Nokia for granted in the low end or the business class but it seems it has lost the knack for killer mobile Phones, run out of royal blood. Its up to the N series to fix it all up. The Nokia N8 may just turn out to be the right cure. With that kind of hardware, its a smartphone youd be mad to ignore. For a change we are not talking netbook-grade processing power or loads of RAM. Nokia have instead given their flagship an industry-leading camera and stuff like HDMI port and USB-On-the-Go.

The Nokia N8 is another one of those handsets that leaves us conflicted. Its got some truly amazing elements: the camera, the video playback, the luscious build quality all make us want to forget everything average about it. That said, we cant. Symbian 3 just doesnt visually stimulate us enough to make us want to use it, with the home screens and menus looking dated, Syncing contacts and calendars with anything other than Ovi being unintuitive and an internet experience that could be improved upon. That said, you wont find a better camera phone on the market, and you certainly wont find a more versatile video playback phone either. If youre okay with Symbian 3 and are of the mind frame that hardware is king and multimedia options rule, then we can whole-heartedly recommend the Nokia N8. If however, your eyes are set on an OS that gives you greater versatility in the future, perhaps you might want to look elsewhere.
