Nokia Announces N8 – First Symbian 3 Handset

  • by

Nokia has now officially announced the Nokia N8. Nokia has done the quick and sensible thing and announced the N8 officially – midst a lot of negative reactions from the mobile community.

What we have here is a very high end spec handset with many of the great sought after features today, something which Nokia previously used to do. The N8 is the first mobile capable of doing all 5 bands of 3G; 850/900/1700/1900/2100 – which essentially means it should work anywhere in the world. This is definitely a better solution than having to produce different models for the North American Market and Europe / Asia. One would hope updates and upgrades will be universal with this move.

It also does Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi 802.11n, 720p Video capture, 12 Megapixel camera with Xenon flash – the latter something the Nokia community has been asking Nokia to give back since the N82. Most importantly the N8 runs on Nokia’s latest upgrade to Symbian – Symbian ^3 which alleges to fix many irks the previous OS has had for ages and hopefully make it a more modern experience.Read More »Nokia Announces N8 – First Symbian 3 Handset
