Nokia N8 Hands-on
We've just received our Nokia N8 review unit and thought we'd give you guys a sneak peak before we got down and dirty to review Nokia's newest flagship phone. It comes in a flat box, matte blue and layered, like opening a present, revealing the Nokia N8 inside. Our version is graphite. The phone doesn't have a removable battery, so underneath it is a quick guide showing you how to put in your SIM card and microSD card.

The box also has a number of connector leads in it such as HDMI to mini HDMI, microUSB to USB (male), microUSB to USB (female, enabling the phone to be used as a USB stick reader), as well as a 2mm Nokia charger. There are also a pair of earbud headphones which have music controls (play/pause, back, forward) and a volume rocker on them, as well as the standard microphone and call/end button.



On top of that is a bunch of literature in a number of languages guiding you through the phone. We've had a quick play, and our first impressions are: it's very Symbian and the camera is quick. That's all you're getting out of us now, we're going to head off and live with it for a short while so we can give you a comprehensive run-down on Nokia's multimedia powerhouse, the N8.

Keep an eye on PhoneArena over the coming days for our full review of the Nokia N8.
