Nokia is one of the most consistent cell phone manufacturers and they typically produce very reliable phones, however not all of their releases have been as high-tech as many users would hope. This has changed with the release of the Nokia N8.
With Nokia and the Symbian 3 Operating System, users have access to one of Nokias most advanced phones that has many of the features that the most popular smart phones have. A number of factors that decide how successful a phone will become, and the Operating System is at the top of that list for many. The OS can either determine if the phone functions properly and the different features are easy to access.
The Symbian 3 Operating System is considered one of the more basic OSs but there are still a number of features that make it worth considering when looking to purchase a new phone. The first feature that users will notice of the Nokia N8 is that it supports HDMI output. What this means for multimedia users is that they can plug their phone into a supported TV and view movies or other videos with full 1080p picture quality. Users do not need to have a Blu-ray player available because of the high definition support which is a reason why this phone appeals to users that like having a great movie compatible phone.
The next feature of the Symbian 3 Operating system on the Nokia N8 is that it has a great option for music lovers. The phone has a music store integrated into it so that users can identify a song that they are listening on the radio without searching online for it. Also, users have the option to purchase the song directly onto their phone without having to upload it from a computer.
This feature may seem trivial to some users, but it is important for people that enjoy music and like to be able to purchase a song the moment they hear it.
The final feature that users will really enjoy is the usability enhancement. This feature will benefit the user that has a limited data plan and needs to use a wireless network when they have it available. This feature on the Nokia N8 will automatically switch the phone from the cellular network to a wireless network whenever the phone is within range of one that it can access. This can ultimately save the user money without them even lifting a finger.
Overall, the Nokia N8 with the Symbian 3 Operating System is a very reliable and well built phone. Some of the other features of the phone that users will appreciate are the camera, 4G compatible and hardware acceleration. The camera on this phone is 12MP which is a much higher resolution than many of the digital cameras that are on the market. The hardware acceleration and the 4G compatibility will only make the OS seem faster and better.
The Symbian 3 Operating System is very useable on a day to day basis, and certainly gets the job done efficiently. While it may lack the flair of competing OSs such as iOS4 or Android 2.3, Nokia fans are sure to find it adequate, and it look set to remain a popular phone because of this. Dont be surprised if you see a lot more of the Nokia N8 in the near future.
