Latest UK news on the Apple iPhone, iPod, iTouch and iMac.
It has long been said by critics and reviewers alike Apple can only hold the top spot as king of the smart phone industry for so long. Eventually, many claim, a coveter of the throne will show up and take the crown. Nokia has its sights set on exactly that with the arrival of the all new Nokia n8. It is smart to bear in mind that prior to Apple’s arrival on the scene, Nokia was a Finnish poewr house of a company that had an iron tight grip on the mobile phone market - after this, their market share was slashed considerably. How will it compare with the new 4th generation Apple iPhone? There is only one way to tell.
Probably the best place to start is with a comparison of the memory which is a big part of what makes a smart phone useful to a wide range of users. The fact that the 32 GB of storage using a micro SD external card makes the Nokia n8 the bigger of the competitors is tempered by the fact that the iPhone 4 comes with that exact same amount of memory built onboard where as the Nokia n8 has only 16 GB built in. Still, the math favors Nokia’s smart phone when the card is added and the total can come to 48 GB which is considerably larger than the iPhone 4 is capable of.
This issue of storage space is even more important when one considers that the iPhone 4 has a 5 MP camera, the new sensation in the smart phone industry - or is it? With the Nokia n8 the user gets a 12 MP camera, hence the extra storage space is not just nice, but will be needed. The added quality may be worth it for some who love high quality photos but this is not guaranteed across the board for all users. Both devices can record HD video at 720p, as well.
