Nokia N8 Early Review in Russia, Symbian3 Not Matching Android or iPhone OS

April 26, 2010, By Alex Ion

Slated for a release date sometime in April, the new Nokia N8 has been early reviewed by a bunch of Russian geeks.

Surprisingly or not, Nokia’s new Symbian^3 is said to bring “little change in functionality” compared to older versions of the OS, or with the iPhone OS and Android. More to it, looks like the N8 (which is world’s first Symbian^3 phone) is nothing more than a polished version of what the company (or other companies) already offers to their customers. So where’s the innovation?

Nowhere!

Mobile-Review’s Eldar Murtazin, who got to spend some time with the Nokia N8, wonders who at Nokia is in charge with releasing new devices. He thinks they’re actually working against the company, otherwise it’s “impossible to explain” why the N8 exists at all.

Leaving all these behind, the early Nokia N8 review takes note that there’s a glass multi-touch display, a 12-megapixel camera and 720p video recording. There’s also true multi-tasking that makes it attractive, but the fact that Nokia’s latest phone is supposedly just as fast as handsets announced half a year ago, is a big disadvantage.

The N8 won’t start shipping before summer, so the Finish manufacturer still has time to actually tweak things around, but for reasons we can’t understand, Nokia is not pushing the pedal for their high-end mobile lineup. And it seems they’re losing a lot of trust, don’t you think?
