The smartphones are becoming smarter in all aspect and with Nokia N8 you get the best camera phone ever.  If you are wondering why the Nokia N8 has received the highest amount of consumer pre-orders in Nokia history then relax, take a cup of tea and let’s talk..  Not just dubbed the world’s best camera phone for nothing, the Nokia N8 lets you take the highest quality photos and shoot HD-quality videos in supreme clarity with the 12MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics.

Before i forget it is confirmed,  Nokia N8 will be in Kenya in the next few weeks…

Major selling point

The Camera….Its sensor size which is 1/1.83”, is bigger than all the camera phones you have come across out there, even better than some costly pocket cameras. With 28 mm wide angle option you get wider field of view, each pixel is “bigger”.  It receives more light and yes, less noise.

On top of that, you get intelligent zoom, improved red eye reduction, face detection, super fast autofocus, and very short time in between photos due to faster processing.

File Transfers

Nokia N8 users can edit photos and videos on-screen and choose from multiple ways to share them; transfer large files to an external hard-drive with USB-on-the-go, or upload photos to social networks like Facebook, Twitter or RenRen straight from the homescreen.  All this is delivered in a robust aluminum body in a range of vibrant colors with a real-glass 3.5” AMOLED display.

Bluetooth 3.0 allows you to transfer photos to or from a computer to your Nokia. No need for cables connection or card reader. Bluetooth 3.0 also means transfer rates are significantly faster, much like wireless USB.

Home Theatre

Time to be home film producers.. To start with HD filming in 720p makes your video crystal clear and the size of the screen in the house does not matter. With HDMI connections and surrounding sound experience of Dolby Digital plus HD movies look and sound stunning direct from Nokia N8.  Plug the device to the home entertainment center to watch videos from your screen.

Web Browsing

With 802.11N WiFi connection it loads web pages faster than ever. Add to the fact that it has flash support, you see the websites the way they are supposed to be.


The first of a series of smartphones based on the new Symbian, the Nokia N8 is fast and easy to use and supports true multitasking, allowing users to run multiple applications simultaneously and switch between them easily.

Multitouch? Yes you can touch two things on the screen at the same time
