Nokia today announced the Nokia N8 which will be the flagship phone for the manufacturer. Nokia N8 has a lot of improvements and is definitely hundred times better than the Nokia N97. Nokia N8 may put the company in a very good position against other smartphones, though this is just the beginning.
I have had a chance to play around with the Nokia N8 and it is pretty sleek with Ovi Maps, Social Networking Integration and also a new app for Ovi Maps called Check-in which allows you to check yourself into places on Ovi Maps just like Foursquare or Facebook.
N8 also provides users with a better digital and gaming experience. Take a look at some of the hands-on pictures of Nokia N8, more to come shortly as soon as I recharge my camera battery.

The Nokia Mobile TV headset incorporates a DVB-H (Digital Video BroadbandHandset) receiver which allows users to tune in and watch live TV on mobile phones. Along with this, the mobile TV headset also functions like a normal mobile headset. It also features an external remote so as to allow quick access to skip, play and pause functions while listening to music.
This new accessory from Nokia is a first of its kind. The headset is compatible with any Nokia phone featuring USB OTG (On-The-Go) and running on Symbian^3. As of now, only the Nokia N8 fills the above requirement. Hopefully, Nokia will announce more handsets which are compatible with the mobile TV headset at the upcoming Nokia Event.
