I attended the launch where they showcased the device together with celebrity endorsement by David Archuleta.
The N8 is the first Nokia smartphone that features their new Symbian ^3 OS. It comes equipped with a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens making it quite the powerful device.

Personally, I think the stuff I like about the phone other than the camera are the HD playback capabilities as well as its inbuilt radio and radio transmitter capabilities. I know there’s always streaming radio but data connection has never been reliable enough for me to listen to the radio on the move reliably.
