Nokia N8 Preview ahead of Launch

on April 26, 2010 – 6:06 am8 Comments

A Preview or more like a teaser of the soon-to-be-launched Nokia N8-00 is already up. Mobile Review from Russia has managed to rise to the occasion  once again. Finally Nokia has a 12 Megapixel Camera phone with a Xenon Flash !

More info after the break .

Eldar says that the Build quality and Size of the phone is good. It’s the first Symbian^3 phone from Nokia and the UI looks pretty much like S60 5th Edition .

We expected this as Symbian foundation told us that you can expect a new UI only in Symbian^4

This is the homescreen of the N8 and as you can see the homescreen supports 3 pages of widgets

12 MP Camera with HD Video Recording

A 12 Megapixel Camera with Xenon Flash sits on the rear.This is the most welcome feature from Nokia and these folks felt that the Camera quality is better than Sony Satio  which was the first 12 MP Phone in the market. Sadly there is no lends cover although the Cam  has Carl Zeiss optics.

The phone records video in 720p HD and features Video Stabilization in case you take shaky videos .

One surprise in the Nokia N8 is the mini-HDMI port which you can use to connect the phone to a Large Screen via HDMI.

An we are now hearing that the phone might be officially announced tomorrow that is Tuesday !

Mobile-Reviews folks are not too happy with the phone. In short , they are calling it old wine in a new bottle with minor upgrades. But we feel Nokia lacked a real multimedia device in it’s portfolio and the N8 might do justice to the company.

If this is going to be a N82 successor on Steroids , then  we would certainly love to try the N8 !

An we are now hearing that the phone might be officially announced tomorrow that is Tuesday !

Are you excited about the N8 ?

    I think they should bring improvements in final retail version, this is looking like the phone is atleast 3 years old.. Perhaps it should have launched when N97 was, and today we could see meego with fresh UI and more features.
