Nokia N8, the handset that has got both the style and performance that can even challenge the Apple iPhone. The Nokia N8’s body is made up of anodized aluminium, single piece structure that embeds a battery that is irremovable, and a front side having only one button. The Nokia N8 sports a 3.5” inches AMOLED Capacitive Display Touch Screen that is built with Gorilla Glass, making it completely scratch free. This will be the 1st Symbian OS running handset to support the pinch to zoom feature for both the Photo Album and the Web Browser.
The Nokia N8 is fully loaded with exciting features including the 12 MP Camera featuring Xenon Flash and Carl Zeiss Optic Lens that makes it better from the others. The Photos taken using that 12 MP camera matches the quality of the photos taken from a Point and Shoot Digital Cameras. The Camera also supports 720p Video Recording at a speed of 25 frames per sec. With the High End inbuilt graphic processor, you can even play High Definition videos. You can share/view the videos and photos with your friends via the HDMI port on your phone to a HD television.

The inbuilt memory of 16 GB from the Nokia N8 can be extended up to 48 GB, the maximum so far from any SmartPhones that have come from Nokia.
The striking feature on this N8 would be the USB on the go. You can use any pen drive on the USB port and view the files on the pen drive pretty fast. The contents can then be played or can be sent to the phone. You can also connect it with a printer or a portable hard drive that has got the electric power externally.
Social Networking can be enjoyed via the Social Networking Apps like Twitter and Facebook. But, the widget on the home screen does not notify multiple status update at the same time.
Symbian OS is well known for its multitasking support that lets you to work on many apps simultaneously with the same good performance (scalability). The Symbian ^3 Operating System is an improved version of (5th edition) S60, but though needs more improvement to match the Android and iOS. The Menu navigation and common tasks like messaging takes bit more time – Write the message, verify and send it, while in other OS you can just write and send directly.
Battery backup is awesome. Just charge once and you can make outgoing calls, surf the internet, do multitasking with apps, and the charge will last for the next 36 hours.
The Nokia N8, priced at Rs 26, 259 is reasonably the best handset to come from the Nokia and is sure to attract all the Nokia Fans, but though the Android running Samsung Galaxy and the 8GB Apple iPhone 3GS might outscore this Nokia N8. Let us wait and see!!!
