Nokia is a mobile manufacturer that causes a lot of heated debate. On the one hand, due to their tremendous presence in the emerging markets, they have the largest market share in the mobile industry.
On the other hand, many will claim that while the N95 was great in its time, the company has not innovated much since. Nokia’s stubborn philosophy of sticking with Symbian and not moving on to something bigger and better like let’s say Android, or even Maemo might be viewed as a big mistake with all the advanced mobile operating systems out there.
Whatever the case may be, Nokia’s new flagship device, the N8 definitely looks like it is packing some innovation in there and from what I understand it is the only mobile device that enables you to play media off an external hard drive or USB stick. How is that for innovation?
Take a look at this four minute video of the N8 in action. What do you say about the N8’s chances of competing with the big boys? Is this a Nokia comeback or just another Symbian device that will sell millions but will not interest the geeks amongst us? Please let me know your opinion in the comments or on Twitter.
