Infact i would most definitely not be taking pics above 5mp. It would be because me the advantage of digital zoom without degradation in quality. At the present state of mobile technology, it is impossible to put optical zoom in a mobile while maintaining appreciable quality and size. 12mp means i can zoom up to 4x and still take a shot of much higher resolution than the average pc displays without loss of quality.

It's a good thing that N8 has been taking it's time to get here. That way, if there's any reception issues, Nokia can fix it rather than tell you to hold it a different way.

you can still get impressive pics with handsets(include N8)but not original as Digi Cams.

Maybe because some phone review website posted a so-called review/preview of it with test software prompting Nokia to introduce it to the world. Ever thought of that, and have you ever done some research before posting questions with obvious answers?

go and challenge cybershot, tomtom/garmin and nintendo ds

ovi maps is greatest but need more more detailed data, keep it up

n8 sensor is great, do not stop there and try to upgrade it to next camera flagship

n-gage is gone, be more friendly with developers with your greatest tool QT sdk

keep it up nokia

Any expected date/month of release in India and any idea about the price, this is the best after X6 and truly going to gain a good attraction after iPhone 4..

I think nokia will launched it in august because they need to try it several time to keep the device working properly and have no major impact defects unlike Iphone 4, they launched a head of time we just expect that the nokia N8 will come first before the Iphone 4 correct me if I'm wrong. so these is why the iphone 4 signal reception issue unsolve until today.???? they hesitate to sell the Iphone 4 now what happen to them?

Opera mobile is what you want... It is still waiting for adobe to produce 'flash for symbian' though!!!
If you want full functions, almost as good as a desktop browser, get that... Note that many pages are cached in memory, so those can be reviewed while 'no signal'!!! :)

If you just want very simple and quick, opera mini or skyfire will do.. (look in wikipedia)

these browsers are just a 'viewer' for webpages that are received by the company's PC, then the page is converted to send to your mobile...
