The Much Awaited Nokia N8

I almost forgot I had photos of the new Nokia N8. Nikka from Nokia allowed me to take photos over a lunch meeting last week. This isn’t the final Symbian^3 software build yet but as much as hardware is concerned, this is how it really looks.

It’s slick. It’s light. It feels great to hold. Reminds me of my MacBook Pro actually as this phone boasts some sort of unibody design because you can’t remove the battery — so that’s one thing you should take into consideration when this phone hits the market. There’s a slight bump at the back of the unit where the camera is located. Some may think that this doesn’t help the design at all but I’m loving it as it can double as a space ship toy for when I’m bored.

Here’s a video demo showing off what’s new with Symbian^3. I can’t give a very objective hands on of the software as I have not immersed myself into the experience.

Pricing to follow.

Its time i should buy a new mobile phone. I like this N8 of Nokia.Looks great! and must be very functional!

THE NOKIA N8 HAVE ALL THE FEATURES I NEED. I’LL DEFINITELY BUY THIS CF COMPUTER THIS YEAR 2010.

10 days since i bought mine at SM Cebu and my camera button is already busted. F&%Ck! I want a replacement. Not a f%$cking warranty repair!

Like Ginagie, i bought one (N8) last nov.13 after 2 days the camera button is also busted (this is considering it was handled carefully). I sent it to nokia care and after 2 days they said they have to bring it to makati for repair! is this what they say worth your hard earned money???? I’m really disappointed with this unit and they don’t give replacements for it. Car manufacturers recall their units if they found it to be defective how come nokia can’t do this??? This is very incovenient for me since I already transferred all my phone book numbers there. WHAT A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
