Nokia N8 : New Era of Enhance technology.


Good news to Nokia’s phone lover, Nokia has just started taking preorders on its hot new Nokia N8 smartphone. So long  Nokia had just relied on their Nokia N97 (mini) and the N900 and did not announced a new product. All of us have been eager to see a new and fresh Nokia devices running Symbian^3 but Nokia really took its time but eventually, the N8 has been officially announced ready to ship.

Nokia N8 is equipped with pretty much everything a flagship device needs in 2010. The real excitement of this device is around the imaging capability. 12 megapixels with autofocus, Carl Zeiss optics, a Xenon flash, face recognition and a wide angle lens guarantee crystal clear images. Of course, megapixels don’t indicate how good a camera is. Though the N8 has the biggest sensor ever used in a phone, hence one can expect high quality results. And there is even more to it. Videos are recorded with 720p HD resolution at 25 frames per second which than can be playbacked via the HDMI port on your large TV set.

What make more exiting about N8 is, for a even better home theater experience the N8 is the first device to come equipped with Dolby Digital Plus surround sound.

Like other rival of these model, Nokia N8 equip with 12 megapixel images and the HD videos (one minute is roughly 60MB. The max filesize limit is 4GB, it comes from FAT32 filesystem) do need a lot of storage, therefore the Nokia N8 has 16GB of in-built storage space, expandable up to 48GB with a Micro SD card.
What's make a bit dissapoint is the camera lens is not protected we do hope that the lens is scratch resistant. Otherwise scratches on the lens may spoil the imaging experience tremendously
It goes without saying that the N8 features WiFI  b/g and even n standard, HSDPA and HSUPA, FM Transmitter, 5-band WCDMA, GPS along with A-GPS and Bluetooth 3.0. Of course the Nokia N8 comes with free global Ovi Maps walk and drive navigation, taking you where you want to be and showing you what want to see in over 70 countries worldwide. A 3.5 inch widescreen nHD (640 x 360 pixels) capacitive touch screen made of glass dominates the front. In order to deliver a more vibrant and  vivid image the N8 sports a AMOLED screen with 16 million colours. One key benefit of AMOLED technology is that it is  really power-saving. The question, however, is, why such a media consumption device has no higher resolution, especially since the Nokia N900 has 800 x 480 pixels. Content would look much sharper on a WVGA screen.
While many devices are powered with 1GHZ  processor the N8 has ”only” an ARM 11 680 MHz processor coupled with graphics accelerator and 256MB RAM which is the the biggest concerns are with the CPU as well as with the RAM which are both fine  but not mind blowing However, yet we cannot judge whether this is disadvantage, especially since Symbian^3 adds demand paging to enhance the RAM.

There is USB On-the-Go, which is also on board, most probably it’s could allow to plug in e.g a digital camera into the N8 to view the pictures on the 3.5inch screen or to  transfer large files easily to a memory stick. Instead of being an USB slave device it can now be a USB-host device.

It really seems as if the Nokia N8 is the start of a new era. Not only has it a new naming convention and is based on Symbian^3 but also it comes with a fresh new look. The N8 is a monoblock handset available in five different and trendy colors: Dark Grey, Silver White, Green, Blue, and Orange. Also in terms of materials the N8 is outstanding compared to its pre-successors. The covers are made out of aluminium and the colors come with anodization process. With the new design there comes also a disadvantage:  the battery is non-user replaceable. For those using two batteries a day it will be truly disappointing but you can bring along NANO battery charger along with you. By the way, the battery is a 1200mAh BL-4D. Previous devices like the N97 had a 1500mAh battery. Now, 1200mAh might be a little bit to weak for such a powerhouse.

Make a simple comparison with other successor you can see N8 surprisingly much thinner than others, let’s have a look at following:


As we can see is that the N8 is not only thin but also a little bit wide and lighter. Nonetheless it is compact, bearing in mind the 3.5-inch touch screen and all the technology under the hood. It is clearly the handiest device of this trio.
