Virgin Media offers Nokia N8

The Nokia N8 is in the wild in the UK already, but now it's on the Virgin Media network, the first handset to come pre-loaded with the Virgin Media Player app.

What does that mean? Well, it means you'll have the ability to watch your favourite programmes from Virgin Media’s 'growing library' of mobile TV content whenever you want, wherever you are.

Not only that, it's also a gateway to a wide range of mobile-optimised content from 4oD, Comedy Central, MTV and Nickelodeon - South Park, The Inbetweeners, The Hills, The IT Crowd, Spongebob Squarepants, that kind of thing. Not only that, it comes with BBC iPlayer and YouTube apps pre-loaded too.

It's also a tasty media-friendly smartphone in its own right, noted for its 12-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss wide-angle lens and a Xenon Flash, as well as its ability to shoot high definition video at 720p, which can be played back on an HDTV through the integrated HDMI connection.

The Nokia N8 is available from free from £40 on a Virgin Media pay monthly tariff with 1,200 inclusive minutes, unlimited texts, unlimited web access and free calls to other Virgin Mobiles.
