It has been some time since we last saw the Nokia N8. We got an email from ‘rovi’ sharing this two tone creation that reminds rovi of Tron – something the Nokia N8 featured in. Thanks for sharing!
It looks proper neat! This was done as a DIY job to change the housing by following a video online. One of those, “do at your own risk” things ;). Not messing with the screen meant that the green trim remained, making it resemble the Tron-like lines.
Hi Jay, I’m a long time reader of MyNokiaBlog. It’s my goto for Nokia news. This past week I’ve been fondling the idea of getting a new Cellphone; my current is a green N8 I bought about 6-months after launch. It has and continues to serve me well, surviving drops, navigating, and taking stellar pictures.
My first choice is the 1020. Then I saw the 925, and then the ICON. And now I hear they’re releasing and 930, the international version of the ICON. That’s the one for me.
I digress. In an effort to update my phone and keep it around a while longer I decided to change the housing as the current one had dings and the bottom is falling off. I ordered a new housing from ebay, it arrived, and I sat down with a youtube video and began to disassemble and reassemble my phone.
A bit ok tinkering and 4 hours later, this was my completed work. At first, I didn’t want to mess with the screen so I left it with the green border. But that looked odd by itself, so I changed the buttons too. It reminds me of TRON a bit.
