Comments Off on Nokia N8

Nokia N8 merupakan HP yang saya miliki sekarang ini. Saya suka sekali dengan Hp ini karena mempunyai banyak kelebihan, terutama pada bagian kualitas kameranya (yeeyee promosi nie).  Post kali ini akan menjelaskan tentang spesifikasi dari HP Smart Phone dari vendor Nokia yang berasal dari Finlandia. Siapa tahu dengan mengetahui spesifikasi ini, anda akan tertarik untuk memiliki smart phone ini (penulis cari temen kalee).

The Nokia N8 is a touchscreen-based smartphone developed by Nokia. The Nokia N8 is the first device to run on the Symbian^3 mobile operating system and Nokia‘s flagship device of 2010. It was released on 23 September 2010 at the Nokia Online Store before being released in markets around the world on 1 October 2010.[4] The N8 features a 12 megapixel camera, a pentaband 3.5G radio. Among the connectivity features are an HDMI output, USB On-The-Go, and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n.[5]



The previous phone in the Nseries was the N97, which was criticised for its initial firmware issues. Anssi Vanjoki, Nokia’s Executive Vice President for Markets, said in an interview that software quality control would be better than for the N97.[6] The N8 was the first device to feature the Symbian^3 operating system. Initially scheduled for the second quarter of 2010, the N8 was pushed back to the third quarter,[7] being finally released on 30 September 2010 due to ‘final amendments’. The N8 became the product with the most customer pre-orders in Nokia’s history up to the point of its release[8] and sales in Q4 2010 have been estimated to be almost 4 million.[9]

The previous Nokia phone with a focus on photography had been the N86 8MP, which has an 8 megapixel sensor and had become available on June 2009.[10]

The N8 is the second Nokia to have a capacitive touchscreen, following the X6, and the first with multi-touch.[11]

Video sharing and playback


  • At the time of its launch in November 2010 the Nokia N8 came with the “Comes With Music” service (also branded “Ovi Music Unlimited”) in selected markets. In January 2011, Nokia stopped offering the Ovi Music Unlimited service in 27 of the 33 countries where it was offered. The service is still offered in China, India and Indonesia with a 12-month subscription and in Brazil, Turkey and South Africa with a 6-month subscription. The reason for the closure in a majority of the markets where Ovi Music Unlimited was offered was due to a lack of popularity.[27]
  • Ovi Music store
  • Digital rights management support: Windows Media DRM and OMA DRM 2.0
  • Short range FM transmitter
  • Stereo FM radio (87.5–108 MHz/76–90 MHz) with RDS


The Nokia Mobile TV Headset provides DVB-H TV.[28]

Development support

Applications can be developed using the Nokia Qt framework.[29]


To highlight the capabilities of the Nokia N8 camera, Nokia created a short film, The Commuter, in October 2010. Directed by the McHenry brothers and starring Dev Patel, Ed Westwick, Charles Dance and Pamela Anderson, the seven-minute film was shot entirely on the phone’s 720p camera. For the Spanish promotion of the phone they also created a short video featuring luminescent puppets, called “Love Knot“.[citation needed]

The phone was also used to film Drums of Death‘s “Won’t Be Long” music video.[citation needed]

Using CellScope technology, Nokia also released another film called “Dot” which they marketed to as the world’s smallest stop-motion animation character.[citation needed]

The device also appeared on the popular Showtime TV show, Dexter,[30] and the BBC TV series Hustle, as well as the film, TRON: Legacy.[31] It is also the phone Sarah Lund uses in the third series of The Killing.[citation needed].

In Asian countries, it was promoted differently through the fictional character Pier Roxas on Nokia’s Project Gener8 by Young & Rubicam Philippines. He also appeared on the GMA talk show Startalk to promote the device.[32]

The “Nokia Shorts 2011” competition involved 8 Short films shot on a Nokia N8. The winner was “Splitscreen: A Love Story”.[33]

The independent film Olive, which is the first feature length film of about 90 minutes to be made entirely with a cell phone, uses the Nokia N8 along with an old fashioned video camera attachment with a 35 mm lens made exclusively for the device and to trick the audience by not realizing it was made from the Nokia N8.[citation needed]
