The Handheld Blog & ZOMGitscj Hands On With The Nokia N8

In the limited time at the Nokia N8 preview in Delhi, one of the things I wanted to do with the N8 was shoot a hands on video documenting my experience playing with the device for the first time. The idea behind this was to give you an idea of how the device will feel to you when you get it.

But to make things even better and add a whole lot of perspective I and ‘teh’ Clinton Jeff from ZOMGitscj teamed up to not only bring you our initial reactions but also chit chat along the way. The video was incredible fun to shoot and we shot over 25 minutes without realizing it and had to virtually asked to stop. Today I give you part one of our joint hands on.

Have fun and make sure you let us know what you thought of the video. Part 2 will be online soon, so make sure you have subscribed and are following us on Twitter. Here is more of our Nokia N8 coverage.

Major props to Nokia India for organizing this N8 preview.

I Will Be Playing With The N8 Come Friday, Any Questions?

Nokia India has very kindly invited me to an exclusive preview of the Nokia N8, a device I have been wanting to get my hands on for a very long time. To say that I am excited is an understatement, for the the simple reason that the N8 brings functionality that I have wanted to ages. USB on-the-go and support for a bluetooth mouse in addition to all the other awesome functionality such as HD video capture, 12 MP stills, capacitive multitouch OLED display and I could go on.

So I will be going to New Delhi, come Friday to put the N8 through its paces and go over it with a fine tooth comb. If you have anything questions, or things I must check out, do let me know and I will be sure to get you answers.

Fortunately, by this time the N8 firmware should have also reached a certain level of maturity and we will get a good idea of what thinks will be like when it launches in late September.

I cannot wait.
