The wait is finally over for those who were eagerly waiting for the launch of Nokia N8 in India. Nokia India recently tweeted that the much awaited Nokia N8 is scheduled to launch on mid-September in India. Nokia N8 is already up for pre-order in the US, Germany, Spain, France, China and other markets. We are not sure when this handset will be available for pre-order in India.
Nokia N8 is the first smartphone which runs on Symbian^3 operating system. It comes with a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display, 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon flash, HD (720p) Video recording, 640 x 360 pixels resolution, HDMI port, 16GB internal memory, 32GB expandable memory, Ovi Maps, Ovi Store, social networking integration and so on.
This handset is available in 5 vibrant colors – Green, Blue, Dark Grey, Silver White and Orange. Nokia N8 will be available in India for around Rs.24,000.
We had told you about the Nokia C7 nearly a month and half month ago. The Nokia C7 will be a lower-priced sibling of the Nokia N8. The C7 will be the second handset from Nokia to run on Symbian^3. The handset will feature a 3.5’inch screen with nHD (360×640) resolution. The phone also has a microUSB port, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The back of the phone features an 8MP camera, assisted by dual-LED flash for low-light photography. The Nokia C7 is made using the same material as the Nokia N97/N97 Mini. The phone also has a call end and a call receive key in the front, along with a menu key. The phone, in all probability, will be powered by an ARM processor, running at 680 MHz. The device should also pack in 256MB of RAM. The device will be powered by a mere 1200mAh battery. Hopefully, the battery life of the device won’t be disappointing.
Here is the walk through of the Nokia C7 :
The C7 will be announced by Nokia at the upcoming Nokia World in September.
The Nokia N8 is Nokia’s best smartphone yet; it is probably one of the few chances Nokia has to overthrow the domination of the iPhone and Android in the US market.
It has great hardware specifications and comes with the new Symbian ^3 OS.
Nokia today started accepting preorders for the Nokia N8 in the US. The N8 is priced at $549 and will start shipping at the end of September.

Many Nokia fans must be eagerly waiting their next generation flagship N series device the N8. The Nokia N8 will be the first phone from the Finnish giant to run on the Symbian^3 OS. The N8 will also feature a 3.5-inch capacitive screen with nHD resolution. Well users who can’t wait to get their hands on the N8 can now pre-order it from the Nokia Italy site.
However, the pre-order price of the device is â‚¬469. Nokia had earlier mentioned that the N8 will cost â‚¬370 without taxes. The Nokia N8 is expected to hit the retail store sometime in September, this year. Already a lot has been written about the N8 12MP camera. From the RAW camera samples released by Nokia, things do look impressive. As of now, the device is up for pre-order only at the Nokia Italy site.
We expect the device to be up for pre-order across all regions within a few days.
Nokia N8 is the most awaited device from Nokia. This handset comes with 12 megapixel camera with Xenon flash. To prove that, Nokia N8 is one of the best camera phone, Nokia has posted some untouched camera samples of this device at their official blog. Check out the preview below. Head over to this post for more pics. Let us know your views regarding the camera samples of Nokia N8 in the comments below.
Remember the explosive and exclusive review of Nokia N-8 by Mobile-review.com? The famed gadget blogger Eldar Murtazin had managed to get his hands on a pre-production unit even before the handset was officially announced. His review created quite a splash as it was republished all over the web (including on Techie Buzz). Soon after, Nokia officially announced the phone, perhaps to quell the tide of negative publicity.
Nokia also published a blog post titled “One of our children is missing“. The Finnish mobile giant made it clear that it is determined to protect its intellectual property and get the handset back. At the same time, Nokia took a potshot at Apple and promised to retain its culture of openness. Unfortunately, it appears that the relationship between Nokia and Murtazin has taken a turn for the worse.
TechCrunch is reporting that Nokia contacted the Russian authorities after Murtazin failed to respond to repeated requests to return the stolen N8 handset. Here is the statement issued by Nokia:
To be perfectly clear, we are defending our intellectual property by asking for the return of all unauthorised property in Mr. Murtazin’s possession.
This is not about attacking bloggers or people who give critical reviews of our products. So as we don’t confuse the issue, while this individual does operate a blog, he is also very public about being a consultant’ to other international mobile manufacturers. He has confirmed he is in possession of unauthorised Nokia prototypes and other intellectual property, and we have asked for their return. Whether Mr. Murtazin’s actions were as a blogger, or whether he is acting in the capacity of a consultant in order to provide information to his clients is an open question.
We’re not able to comment on what would or would not happen if the unauthorised property were returned. It would be inappropriate to speculate on future actions at this stage. However, you can be sure that we are prepared to take all appropriate and legal measures to protect our intellectual property. We believe every individual or organization has the right to protect itself.
For his part Eldar Murtazin claims that none of Nokia’s communications reached him. He also goes on to state that his numerous attempts to contact representatives of Nokia have been futile.
While Nokia is legally entitled to protect its intellectual property, its latest actions don’t go well with the “Good Boy” image the giant has managed to build and retain over the years. Nokia wants the Russian authorities to determine the appropriate course of action. Let’s hope that the situation doesn’t get ugly like it did in the Gizmodo vs. Apple incident.
Looks like Nokia is set to rock 2010 with a bunch of handsets. The folks over at Mobile-Review managed to get hold of a leaflet, which shows the upcoming handsets from Nokia. The list shows the upcoming Nokia from all their series E, C and X. In the E series, Nokia has already launched the E5, while the E6 and the E7 handsets are still unannounced. The E7 is anticipated to be the successor of the Nokia E72. The E-series from Nokia is primarily targeted for business use, so we expect all the devices to feature a QWERTY keyboard.
The Nokia C series contains seven handsets. Of these seven handsets, only the Nokia C7 is yet to be announced. Going by the naming scheme, we expect C7 to be priced higher than the Nokia C6.
The N-series consists of Nokia’s multimedia oriented handsets. Nokia has also announced the N8, and the 12MP camera has not failed to impress critics. The N9 is yet to be announced by Nokia, and hopefully it will be a successor to the Nokia N900. This means that the N9 should run on the new MeeGo OS.
The X series consists of five handsets, out of which two handsets are unannounced X2 and X7. The X2 will be a low priced handset music oriented handset, while the X7 will be the top slot of the X series. We expect to see the X7 running on the new S^3 OS from Nokia.
The leaflet also points at a new Sseries of devices from Nokia. Nokia has never mentioned anything about the Sseries devices before. According to fear_samuraitorat Mobile-Review forums the S series indicates, A name reserved for limited phones. Mobiles that do not fit in other categories come in here. Maybe the Intel Moorestown based devices will be named under this new Sseries.
