The Nokia N8 is by far the most anticipated device for all Nokia fans, from the most impressive spec sheet yet, advanced photography features and new Symbian^3 OS. Well, we’ve so far seen leaked images, video functionalities and more, however now we bring you a three part review courtesy of Nokia Itself. In this first video Chris Bennetts, Senior Project Manager at Nokia talks through the Nokia N8’s homescreen, demonstrating the customisable abilities of the handset, true multitasking that makes running multiple apps a breeze, the lighting-fast onscreen keyboard, email and messaging, Internet and browser capabilities and finally maps and navigation.

If you’re planning a trip this summer to a foreign country we have just the app for you. ABBYY FotoTranslate is a cracking utility application that not only converts images of text into text using its award winning Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, but also then translates this text into your preferred language. So the next time you come across a road sign or restaurant menu that you can’t quite make sense of, simply snap the text you wish to translate and let ABBYY FotoTranslate do the rest. What’s more is that there is no need for an Internet connection, cellular signal, or even access to any external language resources. The built in dictionary software supports up to 8 languages for recognition and 30 directions for translation. Check out my thoughts after the break.

The Nokia N86 8MP is still Nokia’s current camera flagship device, with its 8 megapixel CMOS sensor and variable aperture that challenges standalone digital cameras. The fast mechanical shutter ensures shorter latencies and less motion blur and processing times have been more than halved in comparison with many other camera phones. Not only is the hardware impressive but taking a look at the software built in to the camera application, there are some pretty cool features including a Time Lapse function. Check out these cool demos of a sunrise and sunset shot using the Nokia N86 after the jump.

The Nokia BH-607 Bluetooth Headset is Nokia’s latest bluetooth headset which has Advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and two built-in microphones. The in-ear headset sports acoustic wind noise reduction and has support for Advanced Multipoint, which allows you to connect it with more than one device. It’s also the first of its kind to sport My Own Key, which enables you to assign a specific function to one of the keys. I’ve been using the headset for the past month now and thought I’d fill you in on how we got on. So check out my thoughts, along with an extensive gallery for your viewing pleasure, after the jump.
