The Nokia N8 gets the PR 2.0 treatment

A week ago, we saw the Nokia C7 running a PR 2.0 update, and then a few days later we saw another PR 2.0 C7 running an improved browser. Well today is the N8's turn to get the PR 2.0 treatment. It looks like it has it's upsides and it's downsides, but overall it is certainly an improvement over the current version.

Nokia decided to include the Chat application in this release, which was long awaited and needed. They also included the latest version of the Ovi Maps, but as you'll see in the video, the new version is slower than the current one. Keep in mind though, that this is not a production version, but just a pre-release. It doesn't even have the fast browser demoed a few days ago on the C7, so most likely, by the time Nokia releases the update, these speed bugs will be removed.

Watch the N8 PR 2.0 get demoed in the video below:
