Nokia N8 it seems, has all the prerequisites to be one excellent multimedia playback device. According to a recent report on the French blog, Blog N8, the upcoming Symbian device from Nokia may support the playback of media in DivX format. The blog has confirmed this off-the-record from a Nokia France executive who is reported to have demoed the functionality by playing a video of Avatar in DivX encoded format.
Nokia N8 has already been in the news lately over its ability to run multiple formats of media, including H.264 and MPEG4. But we will remind you to take this news with a pinch of salt for the moment. Nokia has never talked of DivX compatibility on N8 so far and the company has made no official statement in this regard.
Nevertheless, be hopeful.[via Blog N8]
