It is finally official. Due to hit “select markets” in Q3 of this year for 370 EUR ($495), it’s the first Symbian^3 handset from Nokia, and the first to feature a 12 megapixel camera plus 720p video shooting, but sadly at 25 fps, not 30 fps. The camera is something we’re eager to test out since Nokia say it has a “large sensor that rivals those found in compact digital cameras”. The N8 will also have built in software that allows users to edit their HD videos. Additional features, again things we’ve known about for a while now: Dolby Digital Plus, multi touch, flick scrolling, and pinch to zoom.
Here is the first video to come out a N8 , shot in 720p at a frame rate of 24fps.
