Nokia N8 Multimedia Computer – Designed by Microsoft in 2005? (N8 found in old manual :p)

So my new laptop arrived and I’m reinstalling XP on my old XPS to give to my parents.

What with the mass of manuals for the Christmas gadgets, I thought I somehow came across something for the Nokia N8 as it had a picture on the N8 on it. But it’s not from Nokia.

It’s my Microsoft XP Media Centre installation document.  Look at it – some predicted tech specs 😛

  • Digital Camcorder
  • (Dolby) Digital 5.1 Surround System
  • Movie player
  • Can hook it up to TV (via tv OUT and HDMI)
  • The tower center kinda looks like it has touch screen :p Check out the floppy space action going on there.

Haha. What with the recent chatter of Microsoft-Nokia collaborations, I found this mildly amusing. Where else have you seen N8-esque designs? i.e. rectangle with swooping, tapering curves with another curvy rectangle inside.

    Corporate espionage at it’s finest. 😛 Seriously though, 5 years ago, the tech specs of the N8 were designed for a desktop, and now, you have it in the palm of your hand. This exactly why Nokia rocks.

    OMG that’s it! Nokia are being bought by Microsoft! The sky is falling!

    Or it’s just co-incidence. One of the two. 🙂

    It sure is interesting how far we have come in technology. But we seems to be stuck now and need a hard kick start again for the coming year.

      cause most guys working in those shops , are sales people and are in no way qualified to understand most the technology they are selling you.

      A lot of them have a certain bias as we all have against or for a certain brand. Over the last year a lot of Nokia phones have been mediocre at best so it is logical that the sales guys tend to say that Nokia is rubbish. In fact most sales people I’ve spoken with about the N8 were negative. One didn’t even know that had it in stock, and when asking about the C7 he didn’t even know that it existed. Nuff said I think?

      Best thing to do is try it for yourself or look up some exstenive reviews on youtube where they show every aspect of the phone. This should clear your mind a bit about what the N8 actually is.

    People do not seem to be able to come up with unique ideas anymore, and I honestly hate it. It is so disturbing to see.
