Nokia N8

Definition - What does Nokia N8 mean?

The Nokia N8 is the first smartphone to run the Symbian^3 operating system. It features a multitouch capacitive touch screen, a 12 megapixel camera and an ARM11 680 MHz CPU. N8 was Nokia’s flagship phone for 2010 when it was released on September 23, 2010. Although Nokia had already produced many touch screen phones prior to this one, the N8 is only its second phone to have a capacitive touch screen.

Techopedia explains Nokia N8

The Nokia N8’s capacitive touch screen allows users to interact with it using bare fingers. Swiping, tapping, dragging, double tapping and pushing are some of the finger gestures that can be used on its display. Because the screen supports multitouch, users can also perform finger gestures such as pinching and spreading (using two fingers) to zoom out and in.

This phone features a camera equipped with a 12 megapixel sensor, Carl Zeiss optics and a Xenon flash for capturing high-resolution images, even in low light environments. Through the N8’s high- definition multimedia interface (HDMI) connection, users can connect the phone to an HDMI-capable TV or projector to view images, listen to music and watch video in high-definition, 720 pixel resolution. Sound comes from a premium quality Dolby Digital Plus audio system.

Social networking is integrated into the device, and can be augmented with an app that combines both Facebook and Twitter. Voice-guided navigation was another highly publicized feature of this phone.
