Video: 7 minute hands on video with Nokia N8 – Part 1 of 3

Nokia Conversations has published the first out of 3 hands on video overviews with the Nokia N8. Go check it out.

Based on the RSS this video may have been made about a week ago (20th March on RSS)

  • Note that this N8 has C0 on the front. Newer N8s actually are now branded “N8”
  • Dissolve animation from homescreen to 2×6 grid menu
  • Album art/coverflow scrolling is fast
  • Conversation view for messaging, new keyboard demo with smilies.
  • I don’t get why scrolling is considered “intuitive”
  • Ugly god forsaken sidebar in browser is still there and doesn’t seem to have manual appear/disappear
  • Heavy flash seems to be rendering quite well
  • Ovi Maps demo

    Why there is zoom bar in ovi maps

    n8 has pinch to zoom right?

    Nokia ui designers fired

      most likely because the current Ovi Maps software has been installed on it which does not support multi-touch, I’m sure by the time the phone is released, there will be a newer version of Ovi maps with it (hopefully!).

    I wonder why the right hand side bar can be put into the option and back bar to free up spaces

    Nokia X6 seems better. Bidding now on ebay. Reviews seem ok – except Symbian: little software.
