had a chance to play with it as my friend works in nokia. while I know its not complete yet, UI is so sluggish and browser is crap. camera is good, but 12 mp is just useless. Galaxy S is the present and future as far as 2010 is concerned.
There is few reasons why Nokia N97mini is better than this N8 one!
yeah another delay. but, it is better to wait for a month or so than to whine for a year about problems that were not foreseen. i guess nokia is taking its time to polish the software, hardware and ui so that it wouldn't end up a problem-ridden like that of Iphone4, a big piece of very expensive so-called smartphone and epitome of technology

Agai n..NOKIA DOESNT MATTER what apple is doing..they didnt worried about their customer will run away..
This is what we called prestige,affianc e..
so much for Nokia's attempt at bringing affordable smart phones to the market....this phone is priced the same as most other high end smart phones with similar features
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2010I have a feeling this phone will fail.100% NOT !!!
iphone 4 for me is the most outdated phone right now..but it sold is good..why ???juz because everyone like new thing..without the multitouch(nokia,htc already have),iphone 4 is nothing..
Again..NOKIA N8 function is great than many others phone..with the new Symbiao^3 I think is easyly to hit the markets..
sorry buds just checked the site, now DELAYED till end of October.. actually some news over at Google state Q4 release, but not too sure of their accuracy
Does anybody know what finger grease will be like on this handset? I'm hoping Nokie have improved in this area coz i love their handsets but they do tend to get very sticky.
Kostas, 29 Jul 2010The same story with Nokia E72, we wait 5-6 months for a phone.Come on Nokia you are suposed to... moreDo you think four exclamation points after shouting are enough or should you just in case put one more? Do you think you will be taken seriously after that? Do you think shouting adds substance to a crappy message that has no substance? I know it's hard to be teenager but you'll eventually grow up...hopefully.
The reason why nokia is delaying the release of n8 is because nokia wanted to make sure that n8 will not face a problem like iphone4 even if some even if buyers buy different brands because they are tired of waiting. nokia learns from the mistake of apple that releasing of phones before a expected release could turn into a much more disaster nokia choose to lose SOME market share for the n8 than to lose them all.
Releasing of phones before expected release=short time to test the phone=faulty phone
it is better to wait for a few months than to get a faulty phone that you get from your hard earned money.
Bet Nokia's delaying it to solve the signal issue. Wouldn't want it to end up like iPhail4

people here looking for 1ghz,big ram and flashy UI..
Those things are only for power hungry OSes and has a pinchant for gayness OS
Ur jaz frustrated coz ur beloved phone manufacturer cant offer what n8 can do..
If N8 is nt ur liking.so be it.jaz leave n8 alone.
Nokia is wise and mature. Instead of hastily releasing their flagship phone without proper quality check, like some company did, they make sure everything's alright even if it results in delay and cause some potential buyers to buy other phones. They care about customers not just money.
And those of you who can't wait any longer for this phone please buy iphone4. It comes with a rubber case/bumper absolutely free.
Managed to bag a engineering test model from work. Awesome phone, Symbian 3 isn't as slick as it could be but the phone does everything I want it to do and 4 is only around the corner. I can listen to music while texting, switch to my photo's, check the web and then take a call. Everything keeps going, that's what I want. The FM transmitter in the N97 would've been good, but you can't get everything
