Nokia N8

A preview of Nokia’s N8 touchscreen tablet chock full of images hit the internet tubes recently from a Russian tech site, and while the previewer didn’t exactly like the thing, I’ll reserve judgements until its release. The N8 features a multi-touch display, HDMI out, GPS, and a 12MP camera w/ 720p video capture, all running on the Symbian 3 OS. The reviewer said that the phone and its OS have nothing on an Android set or iPhone, which is sorta sad…it’s like a book nerd going up against the coolest kids in school. Well, maybe not exactly like that. I’m trying with the metaphors here, people.

The N8 is available sometime in Q3 2010. Pricing is currently unavailable.
