Earlier on today we posted an article which revealed that a prototype of the upcoming Nokia N8 had unimpressed a reviewer, this resulted in the reviewer calling the N8 “Embarrassment to Nokia”.
As previously mentioned as this was an early N8 running an early version of Symbian^3 we could not take the first impressions too seriously, Nokia have now revealed a full list of specifications for the N8, which prove that the handset does have some promise.
Performance hardware within the N8 looks pretty impressive, it features a 680MHz ARM 11 processor along with a “3D Graphics HW Accelerator with OpenGL-ES 2.0 support”, it also features 256MB of SDRAM and 512 MB of NAND memory.
The N8 features a 3.5 inch OLED display, this touchscreen display supports a resolution of 360×640, other impressive features include its 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss Optics and its ability to record 720p HD video you can store this on a microSD memory card of up to 32GB.
As for connectivity the handset features WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 and HDMI-out, for full details regarding the specifications check out this link.
As you can see the hardware within shows that the handset could be great, however all of the pressure is on the Symbian^3 OS which needs to pull all of the hardware together.
Do you think the Nokia N8 can be a success?
