Nokia Adds Dolby For N8 Phone
Nokia Thursday announced an agreement with Dolby Laboratories to bring Dolby's world-renowned surround sound technologies to some Nokia handsets.
The deal begins with the Nokia N8, which is the first phone with Nokia's Symbian 3 technology, as well as the first cell phone to sport Dolby Digital Plus technology, which is activated when the phone is plugged into a home theater system with HDMI.
“The collaboration between Nokia and Dolby, a world leader in entertainment technology, now brings cinema-like experiences to mobile,” Jo Harlow, head of smartphones for Nokia, said as part of the announcement. “The Nokia N8 is the first smartphone to offer a true home theater experience with HD quality and Dolby Digital Plus surround sound by simply plugging the device into a home theater system with an HDMI cable.”
