Nokia has just unveiled its new N8 smartphone that has a 12 megapixel camera and is capable of recording HD-quality videos.

Late last year, Samsung released its Pixon12 touchscreen phone in the Middle East that also boasted a 12MP camera but without HD video recording features. Sony Ericsson's Vivaz smartphone is the only handset presently available in the region with that functionality but through an 8.1 megapixel camera.

The Nokia N8 will be released in the Middle East during the third quarter of the year for about EUR 370 (approx. AED 1,800).

Multimedia is big with the N8 as the device doubles as portable entertainment centre, offering access to Ovi Store and on-demand Web TV programs from channels like CNN, E! Entertainment and National Geographic.

It operates Symbian ^3, the latest edition of the world's most popular smartphone platform that recently went the open-source route. Advancements on the new version include greater support for multi-touch gestures, a more responsive user interface and more flexibility with personalised homescreens.

N8 is also the first device by Nokia that integrates the Qt - a cross-platform application and UI framework used by developers worldwide looking to create user experiences on Windows, Mac, Linux/X11, embedded Linux, Windows CE , Windows Mobile, Symbian  and Maemo devices.
