Nokia N8 demo video

Nokia N8 174x300

Nokia’s new flagship device , the N8 was top of my priorities list when I visited Nokia World. I tracked one down straight away and got a demonstration from a nice Nokia rep. The hardware is not amazing, apart from the camera that takes fantastic pictures, but what i wanted to see most of all was Symbian 3 running. Not having been a big Nokia fan in the past I must say i was very impressed with the N8. As you will see in the below video the UI has had a little revamp and the phone runs beautifully smoothly.

We have some more Nokia video to come over the next few days but in the meantime please enjoy this one.

Messaging with Symbian 3 on the new Nokia E7

NokiaE7 I thought that the Nokia E7 would be a great place to demonstrate messaging on the updated Symbian platform. The device itself is bigger that the N8 (by half an inch on screen) but it does miss out on one or two feature although pretty minor ones.

At 176g in weight it is pretty hefty but with the added bonus of an excellent full QWERTY keyboard you would expect a bit more. Not having used messaging features on a Symbian phone much before I thought I had better get an expert to talk me through it.

What do you think? A worthy contender up against the sliding Android devices?

Nokia C6 Demo Video

nokia-c6-01-ofic-1

The New C6 from Nokia is the smallest and lowest specced of the devices launched today but that doesn’t mean it is not good. In fact I was surprised at how nice it actually was.

Sporting a 3.2 inch screen and running Symbian 3, it still has a 8mp camera and will record video in 720P HD. Not bad a for a little phone.

See it in action in the video below.

Dell show off dual-core hybrid tablet

delltab1 Fresh off of the presses from IDF is news of a forthcoming Dell tablet hybrid armed with a dual-core Atom processor.  Hybrid you ask?  Yes it seems it’s another Transformer netbook, allowing you to flip the body and hide the keyboard.  It shows the device running Windows 7 with a selection of big, finger friendly media icons for those not wanting to get PC about things, plus it certainly looks like a capacitive screen of around 10".  Not much more is known yet but it certainly looks exciting and quite powerful compared to other netbooks.
