The Nokia N8 is the ideal smartphone for anyone who is looking for comprehensive multimedia functionality in their mobile phone.
It boasts impressive key features such as a versatile music and video player, downloadable games, and an advanced touch screen, which offers some of the most vibrant and high quality display of any mobile phone. All of these features and of course its flagship feature, the 12 megapixel camera, all combine to provide users of the Nokia N8 with a powerful and impressive multimedia experience. Let’s take a closer look at some of these attributes, their specifications, and the benefits they bring to the user.
The quality of the display is one of the first things to strike users of the Nokia N8. It is nothing short of spectacular, with a pixel resolution of 360x 640 providing outstanding rendering of up to 16 million colours and unsurpassed detail. The screen measures 3.5 inches, and thanks to a built in accelerometer, users can enjoy video footage in full widescreen mode, simply by rotating the phone to the appropriate orientation.
Plenty of music and video file formats are supported by the Nokia N8’s internal multimedia player. Music tracks in MP3, WMA, WAV and eAAC+ can all be enjoyed through the phone’s high quality built in speakers, or with headphones thanks to the 3.5mm headset jack. If you are planning on using your Nokia N8 to watch video clips, the good news is that video files in the following formats are also supported: DivX, XviD, MP4, H.263, H.264 and WMV. Yes, the screen on the Nokia N8 is great for viewing videos, but as an added bonus you can hook the handset up to your big screen TV.
An integrated HDMI port allows users to connect to a compatible TV whereby they can enjoy their video and photos on the big screen. This feature is also handy for showing of your handiwork on the handset’s built in camera with a whopping 12 million pixels and the ability to shoot HD video footage in 720p. Whilst this allows greatly improved display quality, Nokia has also thoughtfully included Dolby Digital Plus compatibility so your audience is also treated to superior sound quality.
The versatile multimedia compatibility also extends to the device’s web browsing capabilities; browsing the internet is not only super fast (over a 3G or Wi-Fi connection), but users can enjoy embedded multimedia content such as games and videos thanks to Flash Lite functionality.
We are in an age where multimedia is increasingly important to many consumers, and the features found on the Nokia N8 cater perfectly for those who like to take advantage of this technology.
