Nokia Launches N8 With a Cinema Screen Stunt
This little smartphone has much more in mind than making call or serving web pages.
Nokia, still the world's largest phone maker, has launched its new Symbian^3 super device that will go up against the iPhones and Androids in its segment.
While it Symbian^3 may not have the youthful chops of the iOS or Froyo, the latest Nokia N8 handset has some very impressive hardware features.
The camera can capture 12MP images with its Carl Zeiss optics. You can edit photos and videos on-screen on the 3.5-inch AMOLED glass display and choose from multiple ways to share them, as well as transferring them to an external hard-drive with USB-on-the-go.
Besides just being a really decent camera phone, the N8 also features HDMI out so that it can be plugged into an HDTV. The audio outputted supports Dolby Digital Plus Surround Sound too.
Nokia did a showoff of this capability and used the N8 to project video onto the world's biggest cinema screen. The screen, which measured 1428m2 (width 51m and height of 28m) was hit with light from four 140kg projectors, which were hooked up to a N8 as the media player.
