The refurbished Nokia N8 on 3 is arguably still the greatest camera phone on the market. This handset created quite a buzz, and, with the spec. and content on offer, you can certainly see why. And what's more, you can now pick it up for a snip in 3's clearance section.
Let's start with the camera: a massive 12 megapixels, with Xenon flash and autofocus, this is a phone that really will make you leave your digital camera at home. Like other Nokias, it features Carl Zeiss optics, but it also boasts some of the highest quality HD video recording around, making it the benchmark against which other camera phones are measured. Colours and contrast are reproduced flawlessly - and you can easily edit your videos, direct from your phone, and then connect up to your television to view them in all their cinematic glory. If you have the right speakers, Dolby Digital Surround Sound will accompany your masterpiece, bringing depth of sound to match the visual quality. All this from such a streamlined handset really is impressive!
The N8 runs the Symbian 3 Operating system, which offers an intuitive navigation experience, allowing multi-touch inputs, flick scrolling and pinch zoom, and well as multi-tasking at the click of a button. Up to three homescreens can be customised with your favourite apps from the Ovi store, and social networking widgets integrate your Facebook and Twitter news feeds and pipe them straight to your homescreen. You can even add Facebook events to your calendar, so that you will never miss a social engagement again!
Flash-enabled browsing makes your web experience on the N8 feel authentic and effortless. You can watch TV over Wi-Fi or 3G with Web TV, and use Ovi Maps to turn your N8 into a voice-guided Sat-Nav device. The N8 also has an exceptional media player, ideal for sharing your music or showing that video you just captured.
With a wealth of great features, the Three Nokia N8 is a competitive handset that will bring out your creative side. All future Spielbergs take note!
