Mini action flick filmed entirely on Nokia N8

Our opinion of the Nokia N8 has been hotly debated, but we’ve always maintained that the hardware is brilliant. Now, a new short film has been released on YouTube that showcases the phone’s impressive 12-megapixel camera.

“The Commuter” was shot entirely on the Nokia N8 utilizing the phone’s 720p HD video-recording capability. It’s actually a very entertaining little action movie, starring Dev Patel from “Slumdog Millionaire.” The film tells the story of Patel’s character, a commuter who is forced to make a perilous journey to work after a traffic warden, played by Charles Dance, clamps his
car.

Which do you pick first: Carrier or phone?

Buying a cell phone involves a lot of choices. Not only do you have to select the phone, but you also have to pick a carrier. For those new to cell phones, I usually advise buyers to think first about the carrier–it’s important to find a plan you can afford and go with a wireless provider that offers good service in your area–though I know some consumers prefer to choose the phone first.

That can even be true for people who have been with a carrier for a few years. Just throw a hot handset into the equation and some users will switch in a heartbeat, even if it means paying an early-termination fee. I first saw it happen in large numbers when then Cingular Wireless got the Motorola Razr V3. And, of course, the
iPhone caused mass defection as well.

So I ask you, dear readers, which buying process do you follow? Do you go with the carrier first or do you consider the handset choice to be more important? Let me know in the poll.

Greetings from Philip

Hello

I just wanted to let you know what I’ve been up to recently in my idle moments in Radiohead.
Over the past year or so, I’ve written and recorded an album which I’ve called Familial. It will be released on Bella Union on 30th August, except for USA and Canada, where it will be released on 31st August through Nonesuch.
If you’d like to download a free track from my album then please go to www.philipselway.com. The song is called By Some Miracle and is available now.
I’m also doing some shows and there’s information about those on the website too.
Thank you x
