Video: Motorola XT720 vs Nokia N8 Video Editors – ooh the similarities.

| July 16, 2010 | 17 Replies

I was just about to have an early night when I saw @Camb078 tweet about a moto video.

Does the above video look familiar? Well if you’ve been following the N8 you’ll notice they have very similar video editors. Now, they aren’t exactly the same but the resemblance is striking to the point that I’m wondering if there’s some sort of cross platform app here.

Compare it with the vid below (start at 03:00)

I don’t understand French too well (not spoken French anyway) – you can hear N-Huit (N8) but I’m not sure if that’s in the context of comparing with phones with video editors (iPhone 4 and iMovie mentioned) or the fact that the video editor of the Motorola’s Android handset, the XT720 is so similar. At the very least it’s  – it’s refreshing to see that Motorola deems this interface good enough for the XT720 will also be seen on Nokia’s N8.

Whereas before, there may have been complaints – now anyone praising the Android(moto) version also needs to give some props to the Symbian^3 video editor as seen on N8.

The mirroring even goes as far as N8 low memory errors (though none seen so far in Demos with N8, not including this official vid which wouldn’t have one even if it did happen)

Moto may want to avoid this similarity of low memory errors. (no N8 comparison from this video – though we have seen some low memory errors in other apps of preproduction firmware/hardware devices in demo)
