Nokia launches the N8 handset in Australia


Once the biggest mobile phone manufacturer in the world, Nokia has launched the first of its next-generation of smartphone handsets in Australia.
The Nokia N8 has been launched with a recommended retail price of $749 and brings a lot of features to a market already flooded with feature-rich smartphones.
Hoping to set itself apart from the crowd, Nokia has designed the N8 to be a camera phone, incorporating a camera that has a higher megapixel count than any other phone we’ve seen previously. Using a 12 megapixel sensor with Carl Zeiss optics, it’s clear that Nokia wants this to provide a solid camera experience.
Outside of the camera, there’s also a new Symbian operating system, HDMI built directly into the handset, 16GB of memory, and a multitouch 3.5 inch AMOLED screen encased inside an aluminium body.
