Stunning live photos of Orange (Red?) Nokia N8 – "most impressive pre-production hardware we’ve seen"

SlashGear got some playtime with the Nokia N8 (orange though it looks RED here).

It looks absolutely stunning and in terms of build, SG says,

“it’s some of the most impressive pre-production hardware we’ve seen…..We had our doubts initially about the bright orange color scheme, but in the metal it’s far more attractive than in press shots.”

They also point out the lightness and the very comfortable curves of the N8.

Here the N8 looks a lot more orange.

Attention to detail. Like all N8s, the raised chromy bezel bit isn’t just chrome coloured, but matches the rest of the colour scheme.The seams are somewhat better than earlier proto shots. I’d really love it if the seams weren’t visible at all.

Opening the ports: Hopefully these will remain secure through the life of the device. My N82’s card port is still very much intact.

As in other protos, the colour matching continues here too.

Bottom: Nothing going on here except for some text info that this belongs to Nokia and that it’s Proto. I wonder what production N8s will have.

These tapered endings do add to that added illusion of extra slimness (at this portion it’s approx <10mm)

Now I want some more lifestyle shots to see the N8 in the context of users hands/pockets like the press shots:
