Amazon.com

Intuitively connecting you to the people, places, and online services that matter the most to you, the Nokia N8 smartphone debuts the new Symbian^3 operating system, featuring a wealth of personalization features, usability enhancements, and a faster and more responsive interface. The 3G-enabled N8 smartphone offers a 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen display, a 12-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking, and 16 GB of internal memory (with memory expansion up to 32 GB via optional microSD cards). It's also compatible with 3G networks found on both AT&T and T-Mobile.

Nokia N8
The Nokia N8 comes in a range of colors (see larger image).

In addition to this model in gray, the N8 also comes in silver, green, blue, and orange.

With the 12-megapixel sensor and Carl Zeiss optics, you can capture great images as well as 720p high-definition video and then add music, images, text, and transitions before sharing them with the world. The Xenon flash allows you to take high quality pictures in low-light conditions as well.

The Nokia N8 provides access to local and global Web TV services that deliver TV programs, news, and entertainment from channels such as CNN, National Geographic, E! Entertainment and Paramount directly on the homescreen. It also offers a true home theater experience with Dolby Digital Plus surround sound. And you can plug the device to your home theatre system with an HDMI cable.

You'll stay on track thanks to the integrated GPS with free Ovi Maps Navigation for voice-guided directions, and you can find nearby restaurants, landmarks, events and other points of interest as you travel from place to place. Keep on top of your emails from your phone or computer using the free Ovi Mail service, and discover and download apps and games via the pre-loaded Ovi Store--where you'll find thousands of different applications to constantly upgrade and improve your device.

Update your status, share location and photos, and view live feeds from Facebook and Twitter in a single app directly on the home screen. Calendar events from social networks can also be transferred to the device calendar. Personalize your phone by adding your own widgets and configuring three live home screens, which you can swipe between with an easy gesture.

Other features include Bluetooth 3.0 for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming, support for both personal and corporate e-mail, full browsing of real Web pages with pinch to zoom, multi-format music player, FM radio plus FM transmitter, accelerometer for screen switching and gameplay, Flash Lite 4 support, and up to 5.8 hours of 3G talk time.

Unlocked Phone

This unlocked cell phone can be used with a GSM network service provider. It does not come with a SIM card, and it requires that you provide a SIM card for usage with your selected service provider. This phone comes with a full manufacturer's warranty.

Update your status, share location and photos, and view live feeds from Facebook and
Twitter directly on the home screen.

When paired with a compatible 3G network, you'll enjoy a high-speed connection offering a variety of feature-rich wireless services--from data connectivity to your office to multimedia streaming, and take advantage of simultaneous voice and data services. In areas not served by a 3G network, you'll continue to receive data service via EDGE network (depending on network compatibility).

Note that the downloading of maps, games, music and videos and uploading of images and videos involves transferring large amounts of data. Your service provider may charge for the data transmission, and the availability of particular services and features may vary by carrier.

Symbian^3 Operating System

The Nokia N8 marks the global device debut of the new Symbian^3 software, enabling you to enjoy over 250 new features, including:

  • Usability enhancements across the user interface, including single tap, multi-touch and support for gestures such as "pinch-to-zoom."
  • Three personalizable homescreens, easily maneuvered through by a simple flick.
  • Faster and more responsive user interface with new 2D and 3D graphics architecture that takes full advantage of hardware acceleration

  • Intelligent network management tailors performance to the your needs: optimizing for high speed when uploading photos or smooth streaming for a VoIP call or video feed.

Key Features

  • Fast 3G connectivity on both AT&T and T-Mobile with broadband-like speeds via 850/900/1700/1900/2100 MHz UMTS/HSDPA (with EDGE data connectivity where 3G not available).

No Hidden Costs

The new version of Ovi Maps comes with all the maps and high-end, car grade navigation features you need for free and is yours to keep for the life of the smartphone. No additional licenses needed for extra countries, regions or services like traffic information or city guides. Data charges from network operators may apply.

Voice Guidance and Traffic Information

Turn-by-turn, voice guided navigation comes free for both drivers and pedestrians. For drivers this includes lane assistance, traffic information, safety camera, and speed warnings. For pedestrians, this includes shortcuts through parks and pedestrian-only zones for over 100 cities around the world as well as 6,000 3D landmarks in over 200 cities to help you find exactly where you are.

Unique Hybrid Technology

Ovi Maps is built on an advanced technology called hybrid vector maps. Vector maps are high quality but less data intensive and allow you to continue to navigate even if you lose your network connection. This means that maps downloaded or updated across a network connection are about half the size of bulky bitmaps used by other mobile map providers. The hybrid technology ensures that, unlike other providers, any downloaded map data is stored on the device for future use.

No Network Connection Required When Navigating

Avoid expensive, battery-draining network connections with Nokia's unique hybrid technology. Maps can be pre-loaded on to your Nokia smartphone so you can set Ovi Maps to offline mode, saving battery power, and the navigation system will still work. This is particularly useful for those worried about data connection costs when travelling abroad or when you are travelling through areas with little or no network coverage.

Best Global Coverage

You take your mobile with you wherever you go in the world so, as standard, voice guided navigation for both pedestrians and drivers is available for 74 countries in 46 different languages and there are maps for over 180 countries. This gives you the best maps with the largest global coverage for free.

I just bought this phone a couple days ago.

Comparing N8 photos vs iPhone photos:
- iPhone screen is 960x640, while N8 screen is 360x640.
- A picture when enlarged will look more blurry on the N8, compared with the same picture enlarged on the iPhone.
- This doesn't mean the N8 camera takes blurry pictures.
- This means the screen resolution is better on iPhone
- This means the camera is better on N8.

The bad quality UI complaints are mostly due to the 3rd party widgets included from YouTube, CNN, BBC, National Geographic, Paramount movie previews.

My phone crashed (UI got stuck) due to some third party app, and I tried to remove the battery (as with most other phones) but couldn't.
I realized I did not need to remove the battery...just press the power button for 5-8 seconds and the phone will reboot.
BTW, if you'd ever need to replace the battery yourself, just use a small "allen key" type screwdriver.

The Nokia N8 multiple home screens are a great way to organize yourself and reduce phone screen clutter.

If you need a portrait mode qwerty keyboard, swype or dayhand maybe interesting options for you.
I personally need a qwerty keyboard in portrait mode.
Keep in mind that qwerty keyboard is just a burden for most people (esp. older people in Asia).
Such people will be content with just reading messages, sending a few "very short" messages with the T9 keypad...while making a lot of calls and taking a lot of pictures anytime anywhere.

Among the things I love about this phone:
1. N8 is able to play all sorts of vdo file formats.
2. Camera gives you 12MP pictures, and HD video! Just make sure to peel the plastic off the lens on the back.
3.

Color Name: Grey Verified Purchase
I bought this phone from Amazon, a week back and I own a Nokia N900 too. I wish to compare these two, as Nokia N900 is one of the greatest phones from Nokia.

1) First let me go to internet browsing.

Nokia N900 is the first phone to have full flash player and the major capability is it will play videos directly in the browser, for sites like youtube, facebook etc. Once facebook moved to latest flash player, N900 is not able to play the videos(eventhough there is a hack).

Nokia N8, does not have full flash player, but it has flash lite. I was expecting that the youtube and facebook will not be able to play the videos directly in the browser. To my surprise, both the sites played the video in the site itself, thats really great.

With respect to Nokia N900, every site determines it as a computer and hence will show the full page, instead of the mobile site, which is good, if the wifi or 3G is really good.

With respect to Nokia N8, every site determines it as a mobile and hence will first display the mobile site, but if you re-route it to the full site, still it displays the sites like charm.

Conclusion: with respect to internet browsing Nokia N8 does great.

2) Playing videos.

Nokia N900 has a resolution of 800x480, hence the videos look very good.
Nokia N8 has a resolution of 640x360, so I expected videos(good videos like HD videos) will look less attractive, but to my surprise, it looks great in Nokia N8.

Nokia N900 can almost play any video format directly, like wmv, avi etc, including flv. I am not sure whether any other phone can do/compete with this.
Nokia N8 on the other hand, has the ability to play any video format, but for avi and flv there is a little trick.

Color Name: Grey
What more can I do with it (compared to iPhone or Android):

1. Navigate anytime with a fantastic GPS module and free life time navigation (including turn by turn voice navigation with street names, lane guidance, speed limit warning, traffic etc.!!). Go buy crap GPS software for iPhone for a huge price (last time checked was more than 50$) and even then that won't even come close to Nokia navigation. Don't forget Nokia owns Navteq (the worlds largest map producer)
2. Transmit FM and play it on your car music system (iPhone doesn't even have a FM receiver)
3. The best camera (those of u who read the misleading review of endgadget, if u r really reading my review, then u r serious and go ahead to search on google to find zillions of unbiased camera review, comparing N8 even against DSLR)
4. Pentaband network support, which would let you use the phone with both AT&T and T-Mobile 3g network!!
5. Dolby surround sound output
6. USB on the go (which means you could connect your USB device with the phone!)
7. Bluetooth 3.0
8. The only OS that has a very complete bluetooth stack implementation (perhaps too technical for some of the readers) that allows u to even control ur powerpoint presentation with ur cellphone (using salling clicker). The poor iPhone guys, no ur phone doesn't have that functionality (crippled at OS level)
9. The OS that gives superb battery life (anyone using Symbian would testify for this)
10. The freedom that comes with an open OS (OK, Android is also open)
11. The most configurable and complete enterprise wireless stack (trust me, I never ever had any problem to configure my Nokia phones for the most convoluted enterprise wireless network!)
12. A built in completely integrated VOIP support.
