Motorola made the same mistake..

Now SE will compete with the iphone since they are releasing a gaming phone, wth is the world coming too?

Don't let numbers fool you.
The N8 firmware update is coming soon, and I'm sure they have something up their sleeves, you just wait and you'll see.
Why are iPhone users commenting on a N8 sales estimate article?? Even when Apple sold more units of iPhone4 than Nokia sold N8 during the first 2 months of sale and iph has fancier UI.
Are they jealous that a cheaper phone has more features and specs than theirs and wished their phone had them?? Don't wooorry.. You'll get them in iPhone5 or 6..

Anonymous, 30 Dec 2010frequency aren't the only thing that determines the performance.. they are lot of other things... moren8 runs slower than 3GS and htc hero. all have same processor speed and n8 has most updated os. not believe test it with one of ur friend's 3gs

Comparing 1GHz and 680MHz ARM processors to i7 and p4 isnt the best comparison. Comparing a 3.2 GHz processor running Vista and 2.8 GHz running XP would be a better comparison..

Comparing N8 to iP4 sales isn't really fair. While Apple customers have simply no other choice but iP4, Nokia's customers can pick among many models. Actually, total number of Nokia smartphones sold is MUCH higher then number of Apple smartphones sold.
Also, bragging that there were millions of iPhones sold in just first week is retarded. Those numbers also contain preorders, and those were placed weeks or even months before actual market arrival. If 4 millions of N8s were sold till now, there is a strong possibility, that say 1 million N8s were sold in just 1 day!!! (since u can also count preorders)
[deleted post]I know we are acting like children, but I just hate ignorant people with a passion and I'm sick of seeing people (including junkies on the side of the road asking for money when they have the iphone in their pockets) it's so common like an overused pr*st*tute.
I have used Android and I did like it but after 4 months I decided to go back to Nokia E71 which was my initial phone since it has everything I need without having to go to the market and paying for this and that.
Anonymous, 30 Dec 2010apple is waiting ur eu get 4 g since vid call on3 g is very poor . USA already had 4 g in sone... moreYa right... Video call in 3g is poor... the technology everyone has been using for 5years is poor.. what's next??
Symbian needing a 680MHz or 434MHz processor and 256MB RAM is testament to its efficient OS. It doesn'tneed a GHz processor and 512MB RAM to run smoothly.
iOS and android aren't as efficient.. That is why the higher specs...
[deleted post]It's my birthday today. My parents were offering me the iPhone 4 when it first came out. i said no apple sucks its just a waste of money. last week my parents were getting me a galaxy s, i said no to that too cuz it is 100 dollars more expensive and has nothing better than the N8 except the display. so i could afford an iphone i just dont want to buy crap.
[deleted post]I can afford one, I can get you one too if I was feeling very generous.
But I don't buy things that I don't need. To be honest I'm still on my E71 which i seriously love, but my sister who has the N8 and is willing to give it to me I have used for more then 2 weeks and I love. I'm just waiting till my contract expires mid next year and hopefully the E7 will be out and have dropped price wise, I will either get that or the N8 or maybe the Meego when it is finally ready for release.
[deleted post]We don't bash, we give you facts.
When the iphone 4 came out with multi tasking (which isn't even real) Steve jobs was saying that he invented it, wi fi video calls was made such a big this when it's part of the past, Apps were and still are seen as a major advantage when I see it like nothing but waste of time and money.
Nokia comes with everything you need when you buy a real smart phone. Real calling, no call drops, reception drops broken glass, rubber covers. None of that stuff.
That's why we argue cause what Iphone has Nokia invented and worked so hard on making it work.
