So, the Nokia N8 was announced in like, March, and today, in November, was the first time I have seen one in person. My old friends at Nokia were kind enough to send me a review unit so I could see if their latest and greatest is anything of an improvement. Long-time readers will remember that back in July, I gave up on Nokia and Symbian, largely due to the horrendous experience I had with my Nokia N97. I’ve been using a Nexus One since then, and am quite enjoying the Android platform.
However, I believe that somewhere within the company, Nokia has the right people to really blow consumers’ minds, if only they’re allowed to execute. Thus, I’m checking out the N8 because I know the company is really banking on it, and employees such as Chanse Arrington have told me time and time again that the N8 is an improvement, so I want to see for myself.
Here’s the unboxing video:
Expect more thoughts on the Nokia N8 from me over the next few weeks. I’ll try to keep my tweeting to a minimum and focus on posting things here, so it’s easier to keep up with.
