Video: Nokia N8 Launch Party Nairobi Kenya in partnership with Capital FM (says N8 has CBD?)

Here’s a video showing the Nokia N8 launch party in Kenya. What’s great is that they’re trying to include a cheap internet bundle with the N8. Just this August, Mobile penetration in Kenya rose above 50% (51) from just around 30% at the end of 2007 (Population 40m). In contrast with Britain, there’s over 2 phones per person (population 63M), but that’s not every person btw, as some folk have more than two.

There are currently 6.4M mobile internet users in Kenya out of 19.9M total, with most of the activity apparently coming from younger generations using social networking sites.(2008 UK estimates between 7 to 17M mobile internet users).

Some ODD things mentioned in video when talking about key N8 features:

  1. 12MP Camera, best camera you can find on a mobile device in the world
  2. AMOLED display that comes with CBD meaning in the sun you can see the device (maybe confused with the C6-01? Though N8 does have a highly visible screen outdoors anyway. It’s really fantastic)
  3. HDMI and possibility to watch 720p to the TV

N8 is about entertainment, having entertainment right at the tip of your fingers

    I think he’s just confused. N8 clearly doesn’t have the CBD. Coz if it did, it would have even more contrast (equivalent to S-AMOLED). I’ve compared it to Samsung Wave but you could actually spot the difference. So I’m pretty sure that was a mistake.

      Sorry, I’m still unconvinced that N8 is not as good as Super AMOLED. I think it is as good based on what I’ve seen. And CBD is easily better than Super AMOLED.

        No, it’s not. All AMOLED screens used in mobile phones are made by Samsung. Do you think they’d use the inferior technology and sell the better one to Nokia?
