CeleTalk : Nokia N8


Nokia, the world leader in mobile phone sales, is not doing that much well in the smartphone market. With the N8, the Finn will attempt to differentiate themselves from competition with a high-end terminal.

The N8 is the first terminal to receive the new version of the Symbian OS ^ 3 (an evolution and not a complete overhaul of the system), supposed to improve the management of multipoint, offer greater customization of the interface and provide a better support of multitasking, more responsiveness.

From an ergonomic standpoint, the N8 does not really break with the usual codes of Nokia. The mark does not appear to be apparently ready to take the risks. Even if it’s Something that could give it a little more force. This would also allow it to certainly win against opponents who rely heavily on the concept of design. The Nokia style, even if it has no reason to be abandoned should give more diversification, which just seems necessary today in this niche.

The N8 will have a 3.5 inch touch screen, 16GB of internal memory (expandable with microSD up to 32GB), a 12 megapixel photo sensor, an FM receiver, it will handle 720p video recording and will have an HDMI output to be connected to a TV.in terms of Connectivity it will support 3G, Bluetooth and WiFi.

Since the iPhone has dictated new rules, Nokia is struggling to impose itself on this market segment yet booming. If its latest models are able to attract fans of the brand, none has managed to repeat the success of the N95.

Between Asians and their “steamroller” strategy , the slew of Android-powered devices, and the U.S. Apple and BlackBerry, Nokia has no other choice but to operate differently.
