After doing some research online, I have some thoughts about the upcoming Nokia N8 and the C7. We do know that the N8 is on pre-order in China and it is going to hit the Eurozone very soon with a price tag of around €450 (Ouch!). I love the smoothness of the N8 and I would definately look forward to have a go at the 12MP camera on the N8!
Having said that, Mobile Review wrote about a preview of the upcoming Nokia C7! From what it has been written, the Nokia C7 is based on the N8 platform! It is just great to run the C7 on the Symbian 3 OS! I am really happy with Nokia for their achievements so far. They are going to release quite a number of high specification mobile devices and it is certainly going to wow many people back to their camp!
At the moment, we are only talking about the N900 and the N97/mini being the flagship from Nokia. I hope that it will change very soon. We need to have more choices so that it caters for a broader spectrum of the society! For the record, the N86 8MP is still a remarkable phone as the battery last quite a while. Building a mobile device using the N86 8MP's technology and making it better, I think the N8 will definately will be a hit among customers. It will be better if the price is lower though but hey... You're getting a fully featured mobile device with usb 3.0 and HDMI output apart from the magnificient 12MP digital camera with 720p at 25fps on video recording.
If you think that the N8 is not good enough, wait for the N9, perhaps? Nokia will always have something for each and everyone... That is the beauty of Nokia. Their PC Suite is still the champion among all other manufacturer's PC Suite and I hope that it will stay the same. Kudos!
