If Nokia phones are good for anything, it's to take pictures with. And like the world's smallest stop motion video before it, the world's LARGEST stop motion video was shot using a Nokia N8 (and a super tall crane).
Occasionally, Nokia will show flashes of their former greatness, reminding us why they used to be one of the most relevant cellphone companies in the world. This idea for shortcuts on the lockscreen, is one of those occasional moments.
We might have a few issues with Nokia and their phones, but there's no disputing they're made from hardy stuff. It's why we recall our first handsets so fondly—those drops barely scuffed the fascia, unlike today's fancy blowers.
On a hair-raising morning commute, Slumdog Millionaire's Dev Patel encounters a gun-toting traffic cop, ninja bankers, and... Chuck Bass. It's eight minutes of slick, silly fun, and it was shot entirely on a smartphone.
As much as we'd love to see a great new phone from Nokia, we're not reviewing the N8. The phone was, unfortunately, irrelevant before it launched. Like a top-of-the-line horse-drawn carriage released shortly after Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon.
Nokia is in trouble. In the US, the brand's gone from ubiquitous to the stuff of tech nostalgia. Its next (last?) stab at American relevance? The N8. We pitted the N8's usability against two rivals, and the results aren't pretty.
Michael Gartenberg over at SlashGear just reviewed the Nokia N8, the new Symbian^3 flagship. Is it cool enough to give Nokia's rep a much-needed boost? Probably not.
There's been much contention over the release date of Nokia's coming flagship phone, however the company has just stated the N8 will be available (in the UK, at least) for £429 SIM-free in the last week of this month, at their online store. From the 1st of October, Carphone Warehouse, O2, Orange, Phones4u, T-Mobile,…
"Want to star alongside Pam in a short film?" is the question Nokia's asking, as part of its promotional campaign for its forthcoming N8 smartphone. Pam's perhaps not the unstoppable sex machine she once was, but... yes please.
Make this a lesson in how to drum up some much-needed interest in a should-be-obsolete phone: ensure your Chinese live-stream announcement gets hacked with a snippet of porn. Works a charm! UPDATED
Well now, this is awkward. Only yesterday Mobile-Review was calling the N8 an unpolished turd, and now Nokia's gone and announced it to the world. As leaks foretold, it's got a 12MP camera with Xenon flash, and runs Symbian^3.
