Another N8 preview

| August 25, 2010 | Reply
Advertisements managed to get a quick hands-on with the soon to be release Nokia N8. Though there isn’t much shown with the test, the main takeaways are that the browser isn’t AS slow and terrible as people would have expected and the portrait keyboard needs a LOT of work. There seems to be little to no HTML 5 support as of yet and Nokia have not announced much in the way of HTML 5 with any of their future devices.

Here’s to hoping that there are firmware updates already being planned for these specific issues and will be released soon after release. In an ideal world the phone would ship with these fixes.

P.S. It seems that checkerboard when zooming out is only present on content heavy web-pages. Saw none on the rather light pages demonstrated here.

Give the video a watch if so inlined.

Thanks Chandru
