Nokia W8

Apr 15, 2011
Market status
Not officially announced
Release date




Nokia W8 is rumored to be the successor to its Nokia N8. It will be running Windows Phone 7. Design-wise, it's to be rehauled completely. This high-end device aims to be the most powerful WP7 phone in existence when it hits the market. Currently, a powerful Qualcomm dual-core chip with Adreno 320 graphics is in the plans, but since Nokia's relationship with Qualcomm is not well established, there is some uncertainty about the hardware.

    Positioning - This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. There are three main types: GPS, A-GPS and GLONASS. GPS - This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization.
