Video: HD hands on with N8 with Aspahlt 5 over TV-out.

| July 5, 2010 | Reply

cellularemagazineit has uploaded a demo video of the Nokia N8 which at the end shows Asphalt 5 over TV out. Otherwise, you’ve seen pretty much everything before.

  • He says it’s compatible with DivX?
  • I like the menu + screen unlock (like old style 2 button nokia press) to prevent N8 getting locked if/when switchlock malfunctions
  • Nokia didn’t officialise the processor should be an ARM” – Currently we know it’s ARM 11 680MHz. Imagine Nokia suddenly changed this at release? haha. At 680MHz optimizes N8 for improved battery life. I reckon the demo guy isn’t familiar with the device or  Symbian as he says Over The Air (OTA) firmware updates are NEW to Symbian. -_-
  • At 07:00 we see Asphalt 5 demoed on the Nokia N8 via TV-out.
  • I’m sure this game is touch controlled  (NFS Underground is accelerometer based) hence why this guy ISN’T turning when he turns the N8.
  • Accelerometer type games are so much better over TV out as the screen doesn’t move when you move the phone (and so lose your view)


The video below is just the same demo in Italian. I think no one told him again in the space of doing the second video to try Asphalt 5 with touch


Frame rate is a little better than the demo. With NFS underground, the frame rate is superbly smooth (but I can’t upload that video)
