"The phone’s anodised aluminium casing is solid and businesslike, especially in the dark grey and silver colour options (lime green not so much). "

As tech reviews within tech blogs goes, they often stick within the circles of the tech blogosphere. That’s unless your review unit is a stolen/lost prototype.

The opinions that reflect opinion of John Doe are usually those not from your general tech sources but the humble daily newspapers for example. The telegraph is one of the most respected papers around the world, not just the UK and they’ve got a surprisingly positive take on the Nokia N8 – it’s great that they take the phone for what it is at face value and not harp on that it’s not ANDROID.

  • The new Nokia N8 is the Finnish company’s first successful touchscreen phone. (hey we could dispute what is “successful” but in general terms not just sales we could say this is one without the obvious compromises. Fantastic hardware, decent software, great price, successful on all fronts)
  • It’s neat, good-looking and has a battery that will take you safely from one day to the next
  • has a hugely familiar operating system that’s intuitive and simple, so there’s only the gentlest new-interface learning curve.
  • In fact, the system has been greatly improved from earlier touchscreen versions so it’s less erratic and more accessible.
  • Finnish company’s first successful touchscreen phone.

Now if this is what the telegraph would think about the N8, somewhat pushing it on the business side (though it’s meant for Nseries ENtertainment), imagine what they’ll say when the E7 business beast comes out with it’s glorious screen,  best ever Nokia QWERTY keyboard and host of business centric features?

Imagine then what they’d say about the N9? 😀 – keep turning the ship Nokia, and keep raising the mindset of your products 😀
