Nokia outs official N8 unboxing. It’s interactive and it is awesome!

This are the first unboxing videos for the Nokia N8 and what’s different about them is that they are all officially produced by Nokia to highlight some of the features of the N8.

Another key difference of these N8 unboxing videos from Nokia? They are deliciously interactive, You get to choose three characters with three decidedly different personalities. We can’t confirm this but Ryan sounds like a Malaysian (or a Singaporean, depending on which side of the causeway you’re reading this blog from). He appears to be a geek that remembers all the model numbers of all the accessories that comes with the N8, it all looks a bit too try hard for us. But see for yourself and tell us what you think.

Interestingly, the maximum resolution in all the unboxing and it’s related videos is 720p. Does this mean that the videos are shot exclusively using the Nokia N8? Nokia’s very confident of the imaging performance of the N8 so it’s not inconceivable to think so considering that Nokia has commissioned a prominent director to shoot a short film using only the Nokia N8 and starring Pamela Anderson along with Ed Westwick.

Another interesting point to note, the Nokia N8 comes with a stylus though the videos states that this will be available in selected markets. We’re wondering if Malaysia will get it.

Check out the videos after the jump. A pretty decent effort from Nokia we think but we’d like more detail in our hands-on videos. We really like the soundtrack though.
