Nokia claims the Nokia N8 can offer "a true home theater experience with HD quality film and Dolby Digital Plus surround sound. You can plug the device to your home theatre system with an HDMI cable."
Symbian^3 is a brand new platform for Nokia, and it will be interesting to see how--and whether--it takes. Mobile Review, a Russian language site, was reportedly unimpressed by the new OS, giving it a "do not like," and calling it "brushed, washed, but not polished,"
The Nokia N8 will be available in "'select markets' in Q3 for €370 ($494) without any subsidies involved," writes Engadget.
