Nokia plans Dolby surround sound for its handsets

Tuesday's announcement of the Nokia N8 – the first smartphone equipped with Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 channel surround sound – was the beginning of a new partnership between the two companies.

Dolby Laboratories and Nokia have now agreed to incorporate Dolby surround sound technology into a number of other handsets.

Jo Harlow, Nokia's head of smart phones, said "The collaboration between Nokia and Dolby now brings cinema-like experiences to mobile. The Nokia N8 is the first smart phone 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."
