I played with a green Nokia N8 for only a few minutes at the demo. The color was not exactly on top of my list. The black one looked better in my opinion. The N8 felt rugged, tough, and solid in the hand. Itís not the prettiest thing in the world, but I have a feeling it will grow on me.
I didnít have time to dive deep into the OS. The interface of Symbian^3 felt expectedly similar to Symbian^1 found on the N97, N97 mini, X6, etc. The major differences I noticed during my hands-on were the multiple homescreens, Cover-Flow albums (not sure how Nokia calls it), and the visual multi-tasker. The homescreen widgets and app menus felt basically the same. Next time I have the opportunity to look at the Nokia N8 and Symbian^3, I would like to pay more attention to how it handles offline mode and switching between wifi and 3G connections.
There was multi-touch aka pinch-to-zoom on the photos and web browser, but not on Ovi Maps. It felt snappy! I was disappointed that I couldnít test the web browser because there was no wifi and the AT&T services could not get a connection at the location.
I played with the camera on the Nokia N8 a bit. Iím a fan of wide-angle lens and the Nokia N8 has it! Digital zoom looks good. Objects didnít appear blurry or pixelated on the screen when zoomed in. The face detection focus was pretty cool, too. I couldnít give the xenon flash a proper test, but flash properly fired when I took a photo of an object against a large window with morning sunlight shining in. It looked good from the deviceís screen, but I couldnít upload it online for closer inspection.
Overall, I think the Nokia N8′s 12mp camera with xenon flash and HD recording will be the major selling point for me. Those who hate Symbian will most likely still hate Symbian^3. The UI changes arenít noticeable but that was already expected. The Nokia N8 will be available late summer of 2010 for EUR 370.

The official Ovi Blog asked their Music team what theyíre looking forward to most at Nokia World and one of the membersí response caught my eye. Steven Stewart, Senior Manager at Ovi Music said, ďI think people are going to be surprised with how truly amazing the new devices are.Ē Read on for the rest of Stevenís response.
Itís so satisfying to see Nokia creating a new generation of ďdo-it-allĒ phones that you will lust after. Fast, sleek, sexy, and powerful. Pictures donít do them justice. Once I held them in my hand and had the full experience, I didnít want to let go. My biggest problem now is deciding which of the many phones to use as my main device! Right now, the Nokia N8 has a hold on my heart, but others are fighting to show me why they should be the one in my pocket.
Iím all hyped up for Nokia World! What new phones from Nokia will we lust after?
Reuters reported this morning that the Nokia E7 will be announced at Nokia World 2010 as the new flagship device from Nokia. They cited two sources with direct knowledge of Nokiaís plans. Reutersí sources also shared that it will have a large touchscreen (how large???) and a full keyboard. Our guess is that the Nokia E7 is the leaked RM-626 phone.

Yxs, 11 Sep 2010When it's released many people will write different reviews. Some will say it's the worst phon... moreI'm afraid you are 100% correct. The press is essentially American press (they are the most vocal). And they are as a rule 'patriotic' concerning markets and products. And as it stands, iphone is their godchild. So yes, they'll say that 'it's not as slick as iOS'. With or without any grounds for this statement, it won't matter. People will read and believe it.
Nokia could have released this phone in May 2010 with faulty antenna and then blame all its users that its their fault as they hold it in the wrong way. But they didn't. They take proper care with quality. And i like that.
When it's released many people will write different reviews. Some will say it's the worst phone. Some will say it's the best phone ever. And the press will say that even though its features are impressive the ui is not as slick as other OSes.
