Latest tour of the Nokia N8 demos its video & photo editing abilities
Needless to say that Nokia now has the time to polish up some things with their upcoming Nokia N8, but that doesn't stop it from previewing to the world some of its rich multimedia features. We've already seen some of the wonderful looking photo and video samples taken on the Symbian^3 smartphone, however, this time around their guided tour goes into detail surrounding its editing capabilities. In particular, the video editing features can easily wow some people as it provides a handful of editing tools to allow mobile users to develop some spectacular looking videos on the go. Not only can you trim videos to your liking, but you can throw in additional elements like customized titles and transition effects to make it look like it was produced by a professional. In addition, we also see how the handset's support for USB On-The-Go causally downloads content from any USB flash source and throw them into your production. Based on the video demonstration, the Nokia N8 is already building itself as a multimedia packed handset that's sure to please inspiring future movie directors and producers.

so Nokia N8 has movie and photo editor comes in the handset for free while iPhone 4 needs a $4.99 app fees! Hope eventually iMovie will be free too, HAHA

You know, when I read that about Apple, I laughed and thought, why am I not surprised? Then I realized it fits with the whole image of Apple. Why would they give users something like that when they automatically assume nobody is going to use it, because that type of user doesn't fit the whole profile of an Apple user. An Apple user is overly simplistic, doesn't care, or has no need for anything but basic features and functionality, and won't need such a feature, so why not make some more money off of the people who do want it? Nokia on the other hand doesn't want to nickel and dime you for everything, especially things that should be present on a device people consider to be a multimedia device. In the end, it's just going to be another point you can add to the N8's tally against all other competitors, which oddly enough doesn't include the iPhone. Unless of course you're looking at the physical appearance of the two devices, in which case you'd think that. I have a funny feeling that the N8 is going to be a big success for Nokia, at least everywhere in the world aside from North America, given its price and feature set. If only we could see that exact phone, untouched, with the original sales package on all GSM U.S. carriers...

I really liked the handset especially the design and multimedia features. The only thing that bothers me is the handset tends to be a little bit laggy. I know that symbian OS doesn't need snapdragon processors and bulky RAM memory, but man! This is 2010! People don't like delayed responses and slow performance. Having said that, I'm going to buy this phone. Kudos to Nokia! You're on the right path.
