Nokia N9 gets photographed, looks like a Macbook Air Nano

It seems these days there are more Nokia leaks than actual launches. Yesterday we saw the C7 leak, today we are seeing some pictures of the new Nokia N9. This is another home run in the hardware department for Nokia. It looks like some sort of Macbook/Macbook Air look-alike with a similar black chiclet keyboard. The phone looks like it might be kind of large, but that keyboard looks just amazing to type on. The light color with dark black keys looks pretty amazing on a phone. Now if only Nokia could make Symbian, Meego, or Maemo compelling for developers and users alike, I think we would be somewhere. Check out a few more photos after the break…

Nokia N8 not the only phone getting Symbian 3 love, C7 debuts on camera [Update – Video]

The Nokia N8 has been discussed for a while now. The N8 will feature some of Nokia’s best hardware , until now that is. The C7, which has just posed for some glamor shots at Mobile.Zol, seems like it might take the cake in the beauty department. As you can see from the photos above and below, the C7 has a somewhat similar design to the N8, but with this gold-ish metallic finish that looks quite stunning if I do say so myself. We aren’t clear on the specs or release date, but we do know it will be running Symbian 3, have an 8MP Camera, and feature a similar screen to the Nokia N8. Is this something that might make you change your mind about the N8? Check out a couple more shots after the break…

Nokia N8 final Symbian N Series device? Not so fast

Reports by CNET and others this morning have stated that Nokia’s N8 would be the last of the Symbian operating system. According to the reports, Nokia would switch to the now preferred MeeGo OS for their flagship N series handsets. But the man of the hour, who has held Nokia and other phones in his hands before some of the best gadget sites in the world, Eldar Murtazin, editor-in-chief of Mobile Review, has other things to say. He states that “Nokia N8 is not a final Symbian device in Nseries. Cnet misunderstand Nokia as i see it. It will be at least 3-4 devices more.”

So before everyone starts believing that the N series will not be sporting anymore Symbian here in the next few handsets, you can be sure that Eldar has some pretty decent connects and so far has not led us wrong with his intel.

Hey Steve Jobs, the Nokia N8 Edits Video As Well

Of all the announcements made during Apple’s WWDC, I felt the most exciting was the ability to edit videos easily using iMovie.  The inclusion of iMovie in iOS 4 will most certainly usher in a new era of developers creating and further expanding upon the technology on different devices and in different environments.  Nokia, front-runners in innovative hardware and software in mobile devices for a number of years (at a time when everyone had 1-3 MP cameras, Nokia was shoe-horning 8 MP cameras into their phones), has just released a series of three videos (Two of which have been released) detailing the capabilities of their upcoming N8 smart phone and new video editing suite.  Clickity-click that link to see the videos!

Nokia N8 used to record Rihanna live in concert, looks and sounds pretty good

Video recording on phones has proven to be pretty useless in low light situations. Even the best camera phones like the Droid Incredible take terrible videos in the dark and in concert areas with a lot of movement and loud audio its even worse. The Nokia N8 on the other hand, is producing some pretty impressive results. Yeah it’s not perfect, but you have to consider the following. They are in a low light concert situation, there is a ton of movement, and even high quality hand-held cameras have trouble recording video through smoke machine fog. The Nokia N8 still looks pretty damn smooth, the audio is decent though it sounds like there is some article of clothing or maybe the camera mans hand rubbing the microphone, and the high action recording during sudden movements looks pretty smooth. This is to be expected from the likes of Nokia. Especially in a phone rocking a 12MP camera. Don’t believe me? Have a look.
