Well time for the loan Nokia N8 to go back. It was fun playing with it for two weeks.
It has a great camera on it. The still and video quality are fabulous. I would love to own one just to use as a video blogging platform. The on handset video editor needs some work, it needs to be a little more refined. Don’t let that put you off, it is easy to use.
The handset is beautifully put together. The build quality is truly fantastic.
The thing that is disappointing about the handset is the Symbian^3 operating system. It is buggy and can be sluggish at times. Often you will find yourself yelling “back, back, exit, exit” as you are pressing the screen and nothing seems to be happening.
The Nokia N8 would be a truly awesome handset if it was loaded with the Android operating system. The Nokia software bods could then turn their hands to writing Nokia Android apps specifically for it.
I still would love to own a Nokia N8 and I will miss not having the little fella around.
Shot some footage on a night walk specifically to use in testing the Nokia N8 on phone video editor. Some of the edits are rough due to it being my first time using this interface. It’s simple, but not intuitive. I quite like it.
I should really be filming stuff for #N8Productions but seem to just be video blogging with it. Mmmm wonder if they will let me keep it? I doubt it :)
