Nokia N8

Press Release:

Today Nokia announces the eagerly awaited Nokia N8, its latest smartphone which intuitively connects to the people, places and services that matter most and offers a 12 megapixel camera, the ability to record HD-quality videos, and live fees from Facebook and Twitter on the homescreen. Available in the UK during the third quarter of 2010, the estimated retail price is €370, before applicable taxes or subsidies.

With a 12 megapixel camera, Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon flash and a large sensor that rivals those found in compact digital cameras - the Nokia N8 enables budding photographers to capture the moment in stunning detail.  In addition cameramen or women can record HD-quality videos and edit them using a unique, built-in editing suite. It also has 16GB of built in storage space, expandable up to 48GB with a Micro SD card – ideal for storing and moving pictures on the go.

With the Nokia N8, people can create exciting content, connect to their favourite social networks, and enjoy on-demand Web TV programs and Ovi Store apps. Doubling as a portable entertainment centre, people can enjoy HD quality video with Dolby Digital Plus surround sound by connecting the handset to their home theatre system. The Nokia N8 also offers Web TV services that deliver programs, news and entertainment from channels like CNN, E! Entertainment, Paramount and National Geographic, with additional UK focused Web TV content also available from the Ovi Store.

A second-to-none user experience

Powering the Nokia N8 is Symbian^3, the latest edition of the world’s most used smartphone software, which introduces several major advances, including support for gesture such as multi-touch, flick scrolling and pinch-zoom.

The Nokia N8 offers multiple personalisable homescreens which can be loaded with applications and widgets.  The new 2D and 3D graphics architecture in the platform takes full advantage of the Nokia N8’s hardware acceleration to deliver a faster and more responsive user interface. With greater memory management and a visual task manager, Symbian^3 raises the bar in multitasking performance, allowing more applications to run in parallel for a faster multitasking experience.

Social networking on the go
Social networking is second nature to the Nokia N8. People can update their status, share location and photos, and view live feeds from Facebook and Twitter in a single app directly on the homescreen. Calendar events from social networks can also be transferred to the device calendar.

The Nokia N8 comes with free global Ovi Maps walk and drive navigation, guiding people to places and points of interest in more than 70 countries worldwide.

All we need now is an EF lens mount.

Nothing yet on ISO or sensor size, but i'm interested enough and will be out of current contract by then.

It sound's cool phone! I have been using Nokia cell phones since 5 years. This is the most strongest and durable phone. I have tried other phones too but no one can replace Nokia phones. As technology changes day by day. I always look for the the most functional and coolest phones and Nokia is one of them.
