I was invited to attend the Nokia Connection 2010 on 14 June but I was’t able to make it due to work commitments. Instead, I attended the Nokia Ultimate Night Out! held at The Pod at National Library Building.

We were lucky to have a feel of the upcoming 2 Nokia Phones which will be released in 3Q 2010, namely the Nokia N8 and Nokia X5.

Nokia N8 will be the first Nokia phone to be released with Symbian 3 OS and the set that we had our hands on were still in “proto-type” stage. Operating System aside, it features a 12 megapixels camera with XENON FLASH!!! The screen was impressive too! And the cover is scratch proof – Meaning it prevents normal scratching and not torture-mode type of scratching lah.

What Clauds was holding is the Nokia X5, which is largely targeted at the youth market and is running on the current Symbian S60 3rd Edition.

There is this very interesting function, apart of it being “very social”, which allows you to switch to the next random track by spinning the phone! Check out the product video and see that I mean. This is probably going to be a hit with Youth who want to be different and it’s definitely hip to be square! 😉

I would like to thank Julian of Text 100 and Nokia Singapore for the invite to this Nokia Event! Nothing is better than playing with a phone that is yet to be released in the market! – Even Engadget only got their story covered on Monday itself 😛

By the way, Nokia Singapore is now on twitter too! Follow @nokiasg to get updates for the Singapore Market!
