The Nokia N8 is a quad band phone released in 2010 that whilst runs on Symbian (upgradeable to Nokia Belle) boasts some very impressive specs. It has all the usual bells and whistles of the smartphones of today such as Wifi, Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS with built in navigation software but also contains some of the features we are only just seeing on phones released in 2012!
The screen is a vibrant AMOLED multi-touch screen as seen on newer high end models on the market. The internal memory is a modest 16GB however this is boosted by the fact the phone accepts microSD cards to bulk total memory upto 48GB. Nokia is known for its high quality phone cameras and doesn’t disappoint here. The primary camera is capable of shooting pictures with a proper Xenon flash at 12MP and video in HD at 30fps, a secondary camera is available on the front for video calls.
Multimedia is a strong point of this phone, it is capable of playing virtually any video you can throw at it and is able to output this via HDMI at an impressive 720p with Dolby Digital Plus sound. It is also able to play all popular audio formats and even has a built in FM transmitter for you to output your music to any FM radio.
For business users the phone has a built in document viewer that can allow to read Word, Excel Powerpoint files along with PDFs. It is also easily capable of lasting more than 2 days on a full charge with regular use. Not bad for a 2 year old phone!
