NOKIA WORLD 2010 IS DROPPING into my earbuds because I'm subscribed to an Audioboo stream that's coming from the event. Part of the flow is from Peter Donegan and he has several key presentations available for easy playback on the Audioboo site. Peter caught up with Pat Phelan during the event and asked questions about the Nokia N8, a phone that looks like it would be durable enough for several years of field duty in our creative multimedia programme at Tipperary Institute. Several presenters at Nokia World used the N8's HDMI connectors to cable directly into the main stage and play back their presentations for the crowd. That's one of the use cases I have in mind for the phone. I also like the N8's 12 megapixel camera. I've heard several podcasters talking about the N8's camera heritage. I like what I hear about the technology and design decisions with N8 imaging. I hope the Nokia N8 hits the Irish market before the end of September and that O2 offer it at the right price point for the double platinum upgrade that I'm carrying in my pocket.
