True to its reputation, Nokia provides in the N8 the pinnacle in smartphone cameras, shooting stills in a whopping 12 megapixels. That’s sharper than most digital cameras (which don’t even have a phone attached). Even video, it shoots in striking 720p crispness and clarity. To boot, it boasts an industry leading Xenon flash and Carl Zeiss autofocus lens, making the N8 a truly picture perfect device.
The sleek and solid aluminum build of the Nokia N8 gives it a leg up on most other touch screen smartphones in both ruggedness and fashionableness. It even comes in a variety of colors for more seamlessly meshing the design with your own personal style.
The Nokia N8 can also compete with any modern cell phone in features and functionality, offering WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP, USB On-The-Go, and both a real and assisted mobile GPS. It has a long battery life, with a 1200mAh battery, and a memory to match, with 16 GB built in and a MicroSD slot for increasing that by an addition 32 GB. Even major competitor Apple’s top-dog device only gives you a choice of 16 GB or 32 GB, but not both. With 48 GB you can store enough movies, photos, and games to keep you entertained on even the longest flights (travel delays included).
The 3.5″ AMOLED touch screen display with 640 x 360 resolution is as easy on the eyes as it is on the fingertips. That is, on this cell phone you don’t have to squint to see it, and you don’t have to be a computer geek to control it. The device boasts new Gorilla Glass technology that’s smartly and graciously scratch-resistant, so images are as clear months or years out of the box as they are the day you first turn on the device. An HDMI output even lets you view media stored on the N8 on a TV screen or other home theater projector for an even bolder image.
