Spearheading Nokia’s fightback to regain the spotlight in the smartphone race are four models – the previously announced but not yet available N8, the E7 Communicator, C6 and C7.
The N8 was billed by company executives at Nokia World here as the “ultimate entertainment smartphone and the world’s best camera phone.”
Nokia said the phone has received the highest-ever demand for online pre-orders, suggesting that the company may have a hit on its hands.
The phone is due to be available in selected markets next month and in Malaysia before Dec 31, 2010. Expected price would be around RM 1800.00
It has a 12-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus and Xenon flash, 720p HD video recording, Dolby Digital Plus Surround Sound, HDMI connection, 3.5in capacitive multi-touch AMOLED screen (640 x 360-pixels), 16GB internal memory and a microSD card slot (up to 32GB card supported).
Nokia’s N8 also has an accelerometer and proximity sensor, WiFi, Bluetooth, A-GPS, Ovi Maps, digital compass, full Qwerty virtual keyboard and a dedicated social client for live updates from Facebook and Twitter.
