    Nokia N8 Showcases Improved Symbian, Excellent Hardware

    Nokia has done a lot of trailing as of late in the smartphone space.  While we doubt the Nokia N8 will change that predicament, it is an interesting phone with solid specs and a heaping of features. Physically, the handset continues Nokia’s tradition of producing great hardware with high quality construction.  We love the size – big enough for a spacious display but slim enough to be pocketable.  Display is a 3.5-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen...
