Nokia has started to ship the new Nokia N8 Symbian 3 smartphone. Besides the new Symbian 3 OS the Nokia N8 offers high-end features like the 12MP camera with Carl Zeiss Optics and a 3.5-inch OLED touchscreen. Engadget has now published a full review of the newest Nokia flagship smartphone. Has the Nokia N8 any chance against the top Android phones and the iPhone? Well the 12MP camera is great, but Symbian is just a dead end.
Quote from the N8 review: "Let us also be clear about the software: we can say in no uncertain terms that the N8 is easily the best Symbian device that Nokia -- or any company, for that matter -- has ever made. Unfortunately, by evolving at a glacial (and largely superficial) pace, Symbian itself continues to cater specifically to a market of individuals who were early smartphone adopters five or more years ago. That's a market whose continued loyalty only stands to shrink, not grow. And at a time when 720p video recording is no longer novel and 3.5-inch screens are starting to look a bit on the small side, even DSLR-like image quality isn't enough to justify a phone without a fantastic and thoroughly modern user experience to match. Symbian^3, sadly, regrettably, heartrendingly, isn't there yet." Read the full really very in-depth Nokia N8 review on Engadget.
