Gallery: Silver N8 – Blog-N8's first impressions

| June 9, 2010 | Reply

Yesterday, Camb078 has some facetime(badaboom, oh dear…) with the Nokia N8 and today has posted his first impressions as well as a stunning photo galleryon  Though it’s the same silver N8, it hasn’t looked as good as in these photos.

Some interesting points from Camb078:

  • Excellent manufacturing quality. The top and bottom is made of high quality plastic.
  • The menu button does not need a lot of pressure (hopefully much less than the N97 – something akin to camera shutter when pressed halfway – capacitive keys next time please Nokia)
  • Rather bright screen, very responsive
  • Being on later firmware, this N8 is very fluid, and no lags
  • All widgets running on N97/N97 mini will work on N8
  • Cambo mentions something about a transition effect (I don’t know if he’s referring to the exceedingly DULL fade in fade out – FIX THIS NOKIA!)
  • HDMI demo of TRON was excellent
  • Confirming Ahmed360’s comments N8 plays DivX videos – (hurray! Perfect combination! No need for 3rd party players, like N900 this turns your N8 into a portable video player. Hook up your N8 VIA USB to go to access your DivX library without the need to transfer over to N8, then connect N8 to TV via HDMI out!)

With the interface, apparently Nokia asked Cambo to blur them out! Here’s a few pics but head over to Cambo’s blog for more.
