And so its time once again to pack up a cool smartphone and send it back – I’m talking about the Nokia N8 device that I’ve had on loan for several weeks now. As you may (or may not) know, I’m a photo junkie and a budding photographer (wanna-be) so having the N8 has been a real treat! Simply put, this device, the first smartphone to ship that runs the Symbian^3 OS, is a mobile photographer (and videographer) dream. 12 megapixel camera, flash, HD (720p) video capture), on deck photo editing, video editing, short film and slideshow creation, GPS-enabled for geotagging, and social media savvy… in concert these attributes any any N8 device user to take great shots any time and place, edit/manipulate the media, and share.
Please read on in this hands-on review for detailed comments, a huge photo gallery, and boxing up video… enjoy!
