And this year's TIPA award goes to.... the Nokia N86 8MP

Published by at

Continuing a long run of success, Nokia has scored again with the N86 8MP at the annual TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) awards. The N86 won in the 'Mobile imaging device' category - perhaps a little premature given that the device hasn't hit the streets in production form, maybe Nokia has been handing prototypes to the 'right' people? Previous winners in the category were the Nokia N82 (2008) and N95 (2007), so at least it does seem as if the judges have got their heads screwed on straight.

Although the N86 8MP wont be swaying the N82 Xenon-addicted faithful (me included), it does look to be a top contender for daylight shots, rivalling the Samsung INNOV8 and Sony Ericsson C905 for the 8 megapixel crown.
