Personally, nokias don't appeal to me. They look all too plain, bulky, no style or edge to it.
The only thing this Z8 lacks is AF.
Can it also take profile pictures with it's VGA cam?
this phone is cool but it will never neat nokia. nokia has already beaten this phone like 10 time in the pas EX: n95/n73/e90/ and almost all other nokia s60 phone with 2megapixels are way more advanced than this one..moto will never be at the same level that nokia is and that is fact these days
good to see that new moto phones record video at 30 fps, and they have 3.6mbps hsdpa (faster then my home connection!!! :D )
How about upload speed with hsdpa?
Wanna know How many MP3 songs can it store at a time & does the mp3 player runs on the same apple mac system???
DJ ,do you talk 5 houres in row?:O:P
OMG ,Ilove this fone=D ,but i cant buy it because of my parents:/=( ,bummer
the Z8 supports mp3 ringtones. it will also play back aac,wma and many more file types. get rid of you v3i and get with the times!!! dont base you assumptions on the phone that has been out for over 2 years.
please inform me when this thing's already out...
Although it doesn't even have an fm radio, it looks cool.
Motorola's got a lot of catching up to do, and it looks like it's already starting with it...
correct me if Im wrong, but when is the last time motorola has ever released a phone that is wifi capable?
i got the phone last week and its so cool. my favourite colour is purple
i do not imply that this will be better than E90 and iPhone, they have differences like higher resolution screens, etc.
but when it comes to the insides, with RIZR Z8's texas instruments ARM processor, they will function virtually the same.
also the E90 doesn't take more than 2gb microSD cards. infact nokia hasn't announced any phones that can go to the new 4gb microSD expansion.
meanwhile the RIZR Z8 with a 4gb card will hold more memory (because iPhone's memory also has the operating system on it) than the lower priced 4gb iPhone not to mention the price will be much cheaper.
iPhone also doesn't have HSDPA, it will be locked to one carrier whenever Apple selects a european partner and no third party applications.
this of course doesn't matter because this will be out months before iPhone. by the time iPhone comes out in june, motorola will be preparing for their next phase of handsets: SCPL, includes new touchscreen models to better compete with iPhone.
when it comes to multimedia performance, it will surprisingly be comparable to nokia e90 and iPhone.
it features the TI-2420 ARM processor, the reason why the 30fps video and the interface were reported to be so fluid in that review i previously posted. when you turn the screen sideways in landscape mode, it will be the same as video on an iPod.
the TI-2420 is the same processor used in nokia's new N800 internet tablet and if not the very same one found in E90 and iPhone, it will be in the same league.
motorola finally splurges in 2007 and starts putting the good stuff in their phones. you'll see them in a whole new light by their special event this summer.
how could this kick nokia's A**, when it doesnt have gigabite memory or even WLAN! nothing beats E90 or iPhone!
How can you say you "love the phone" and in the next post you say its crap lol
wow it seems motorola engineers woke up!
beautiful phone, superb features.
Wow!!!!!!! Damn on N Series, Damn on E Series, Damn on Nokia! look guys it's gonna kick all nokia phones A**!!!!!!!!!!!
About Real Player:
Well the v3i cant play Real Media but nearly all new motos does (exept low-end ones), they can play format that are even't listed such as .svg that is some kind of metavideo
two other points i found interesting:
"Even more impressive in some ways is that the video capabilities have been further enhanced by the presence of the Sky by Mobile app that has been developed in associated with weComm. Sky by Mobile allows you to access the full Sky Electronic Program Guide and, with one click, record a program on your home Sky+ box. It also allows you to stream Sky TV (25 channels available) directly to your handset via a 3G connection.
The popular multimedia upload application, Shozu, will also be preinstalled in the Z8. Shozu allows users to upload images and video to a number of popular photo and video sharing sites, such as Flickr and YouTube, as well as supporting sending of multimedia to email addresses and remote servers."
also, here is AllAboutSymbian's photo gallery with many high resolution RIZR Z8 images:
