Finally, Nokia N8 has a supported version of Swype available at the OVI store. It’s free and no, it still doesn’t have vertical keyboard support. Only landscape for now. But at least you don’t have to use dodgy ways to get the C7 version installed on the N8 now. Swype is definitely a better way to input than the standard touch keyboard that’s for sure.
It is currently available in English, Spanish, FrenchCA and PortugueseBr with more language support apparently coming soon. Vertical keyboard will probably appear sometime early next year.
Nokia Senior Project Manager’s Nokia N8 video overview triology is now complete. The last part of the overview of Nokia N8 has been let loose and it covers some of its multimedia aspects such as the music player and the HDMI interface for video and audio out in HD format straight to your HDTV. It’s not overly exciting but still, you get a glimpse of what you can do and the 3D album selection scrolling in the music player quite impressed me as it was fast and smooth with no lags. For Part 1 and 2 videos, check out this post.
Following the Part 1 video showing us the overview of the Nokia N8, Nokia has put out a Part 2 video this time showcasing its creative side. The video goes through the super speedy photo browser, editing the photos in-phone and also the very user friendly Video Editor. Seeing as though Apple iPhone with iOS4 will also have this feature included, it will be interesting to see how this will compare. Nokia N8 is scheduled to be released at Q3 this year.
