Nokia’s N8 Prepares For A Niche Market | eWEEK Europe UK

This is a niche product. And phones shouldn’t be niche products.

As with the N97 before it, Nokia has shoved in a ton of features. There’s a 12 Mpixel camera, HD video, and HDMI output. But how many people actually want to cable a monitor to their phone to watch a movie? The USB can act as a host as well as a client – but how many people want to find an obscure cable to hook up a storage device to it?

I never understood Nokia’s obsession with TV outs.
