Nokia N8 New Specs, Release Date Plus Official Price and Review

Posted on 20 August 2010 by author

For quite a while, Nokia had become one of the leading suppliers of mobile phones in the world. And just recently Nokia has unveiled another great phone to join its wide array of smartphones by the month of September. If you will notice Nokia hasn’t been competing that much when it comes to high end phones. Even the existence of N97 and E6 failed to match up the features offered by the iPhone and Android phones – which can partly be attributed to its sub-par OS.

And now with the Nokia N8, Nokia seems to bring all the features of a high-end mobile phone. The Nokia N8 is the latest smartphone from Nokia which basically promises the following features:

  • connects you to your favorite networking sites and keeps you connected with your loved ones, family and friends
  • allows you to enjoy the latest on-demand Web TV programs and Ovi Store Apps
  • allows you to take amazing photos and video

The Nokia N8 comes with a stylish aluminum design that goes with a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon Flash and a large sensor that seems to compete with those present in compact digital cameras. It also features an HD-quality video recording; film editing software and a Dolby surround sound which will surely provide its users a true home theater experience.

Aside from these great features the Nokia N8 also comes with a good set of specs which includes:

  • 3.5 inches AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 360 x 640 pixels resolution
  • 16 GB storage capacity; 256MB RAM and 512MB ROM
  • MicroSD card of up to 32GB
  • Symbian^3 OS
  • ARM 11 680MHz processor
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and UPnP technology
  • Stereo FM Radio with RDS and FM transmitter
  • Standard Li-Ion 1200 mAh that can lasts up to 12 hours and 30 minutes talktime for 2G and up to 5 hours and 30 minutes talktime for 3G

The Nokia N8 will be available in different and exciting colors like dark grey, silver white, green, blue, and orange. Aside from these great features mentioned, the N8 is also comes integrated with Qt, which is apparently a software development kit that offers developers a much simpler way of building applications and deploy across Symbian and other software platforms.

The Nokia N8 seems to be a great choice for smartphone users out there, with the new Symbian OS that offers several advancements accompanied by a great set of specs and amazing features, it seems that Nokia is coming out with an impressive phone out of the box. Although it may take some time before it will be able to match the very popular iPhone and Android phones in the market, coming out with the Nokia N8 is a pretty good start.

The Nokia N8 is already available for pre-order and will be offered at the price of $549.
