Another test from James Burland places the 848X480 recording N900 against the 640X480 iPhone 3GS.
James notes that currently the N900 suffers from frame rate drops and at times confusion with exposure. The frame rate issue is supposedly going to be fixed in the next firmware update.
Nokia’s been producing phones with great video recording for yonks. The 3GS is Apple’s first official try at video. This is the first from Nokia (that I’m aware of) that suffer these issues. Video is otherwise very good across the Nseries range.
