Russian mobile guru Eldar Murtazin has struck again, this time getting his hands on the Nokia N8, the first Symbian^3 smartphone. Although a brief preview as opposed to one of his legendary unending reviews, it does manage to give us a pretty good idea of what we’re in store for when it launches. Overall the device seems fairly well built and feels good in the hands, although dust did manage to find its way underneath the glass covered multitouch display. The camera, although 12 megapixels and capable of shooting videos at 720p, is said to produce results no better than any of Nokia’s other devices. Sadly the more content your phone has the less responsive the camera gets. The HDMI-out port, a much welcomed features, is somewhat kneecaped thanks to its requiring a Mini HDMI cable. As for the Symbian^3 OS, Murtazin is not a fan saying its nothing more than a few cosmetic changes that ultimately offers little new in terms of functionality. So, what’s the final word? Apparently the device, which is going to be Nokia’s next flagship smartphone, led Murtazin to ultimately concluded that Nokia is trying very hard to sabotage itself and destroy its brand. Ouch.
