Nokia N8, Can it Boost Nokia Rep?
The Nokia N8 is the latest flagship smartphone out of the Nokia stable and sports the Symbian^3 operating system, but with Nokia’s reputation taking a downwards slide, can the new Nokia N8 give the company a much needed shove in the upwards direction?
Well according to an article over on Gizmodo by Christina Bonnington, the answer to that question is probably not. This assumption is based on a review of the Nokia N8 done by Slash Gear, which says the Nokia N8 would have been a top of the line device some 2 years ago, however today the software is holding back Nokia.
The Nokia N8 carries Symbian^3 of course sop basically they are saying the Symbian operating system has just about had its day and it is time that Nokia shelved the OS and turned to some other such as Android for future smartphones.
One of the main reasons for the damning review is they think the Nokia N8 will only just cause a ripple when it lands in the big old US of A due to the Ovi store being very poor on app quantity. So what do you think can the Nokia N8 boost Nokia’s rep or is it about time they dumped Symbian?
