April 27, 2010

ESPOO, Finland, April 27, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — The Nokia N8,
Nokia’s (NYSE: NOK) latest smartphone, intuitively connects to the people,
places and services that matter most. With the Nokia N8, people can create
compelling content, connect to their favorite social networks and enjoy
on-demand Web TV programs and Ovi Store apps. Available in select markets
during the third quarter of 2010, the estimated retail price of the Nokia N8
is EUR 370, before applicable taxes or subsidies.

The Nokia N8 introduces a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics,
Xenon flash and a large sensor that rivals those found in compact digital
cameras. Additionally, the Nokia N8 offers the ability to make HD-quality
videos and edit them with an intuitive built-in editing suite. Doubling as a
portable entertainment center, people can enjoy HD-quality video with Dolby
Digital Plus surround sound by plugging into their home theatre system. The
Nokia N8 enables access to Web TV services that deliver programs, news and
entertainment from channels like CNN, E! Entertainment, Paramount and
National Geographic. Additional local Web TV content is also available from
the Ovi Store.

Social networking is second nature to the Nokia N8. People can update
their status, share location and photos, and view live feeds from Facebook
and Twitter in a single app directly on the home screen. Calendar events from
social networks can also be transferred to the device calendar.

The Nokia N8 comes with free global Ovi Maps walk and drive navigation,
guiding people to places and points of interest in more than 70 countries

Symbian^3 in action

Powering the Nokia N8 is Symbian^3, the latest edition of the world’s
most used smartphone software, which introduces several major advances,
including support for gestures such as multi touch, flick scrolling and
pinch-zoom. The Nokia N8 also offers multiple, personalizable homescreens
which can be loaded with apps and widgets. The new 2D and 3D graphics
architecture in the platform takes full advantage of the Nokia N8′s hardware
acceleration to deliver a faster and more responsive user interface.
Symbian^3 also raises the bar in performance by delivering greater memory
management allowing more applications to run in parallel for a faster multi-
tasking experience.

Getting Qt for Developers

The Nokia N8 is Nokia’s first device to be integrated with Qt, a software
development environment that simplifies the development and makes it possible
to build applications once and deploy across Symbian and other software
platforms. Nokia has also made the powerful and simple to use Nokia Qt SDK
available, in its initial beta, to enable developers to start realizing the
potential of Qt.
