Nokia N8 and Java ME

September 14, 2010

Today, Nokia officially announced their new N8 mobile device, which runs Symbian and supports real Java applications (via Java ME). It's not Android - it's Symbian. And although some of the specs fall short of the iPhone and some Android phones such as the Droid Incredible, Nokia has done a nice job with the integrated camera.

The device somes with 256MB RAM, 512MB additional NAND memory, 16GB of storage, a 670MHz ARM11 CPU, a 640x380 touch screen, and 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, and is capable of shooting 720p HD video as well. It has a second camera for video calls, and an officially-licensed JVM capable of running MIDP Java ME applications with ease. There's also native support for Qt applications.

For a look at the device in action, along with its full specs and availability date (should be October 2010), see http://events.nokia.com/NokiaN8.
