Yesterday saw Nokia launch the much rumored and photographed N8. The N8 is a 12MP camera with xenon flash and a large sensor which mimics the ones found on compact digital cameras. with 720p HD recording and an HDMI out along with Dolby Digital Plus surround sound this is a media powerhouse. with 16GB flash memory inbuilt and support for 32GB Micro SD cards and 135MB internal memory the N8 is surely not short on memory to store all your memories. This device is expected to retail at about 400 Euros (370 Euros before taxes and subsidies).

256MB of RAM means that there won’t be RAM issues either. This is also the first handset to come with Symbian^3 that supports gestures such as multi touch, flick scrolling and pinch-zoom. The Nokia N8 is also the first device to be integrated with Qt, a software development environment that simplifies the development and makes it possible to build applications once and deploy across Symbian and other software platforms.

Equipped with a 3.5 inch capacitive touch-screen to enable better feedback and free life-time navigation on Ovi Maps, the N8 is the perfect companion for exploring the world around you.

The N8 is going to be available in a host of new colours, which have never been seen before in the Nseries line up. The five colours are – •Dark Grey •Silver White •Green •Blue •Orange. I liked the orange one, what about you?

We even have videos of the N8 so that you can enjoy this new device.
