N8 screen has like 10 pixels so it won't look good.

Hands - down the NOKIA N8 is the best camera-phone this far.

Make bad press about how dynamic range and sensitivity is more important than megapixels and how unsatisfied the reviewers and users are to the product's features.

When the consumers starts realizing what they lost by the megapixel race (lose a lot, something in the level of the sky is falling down and it's the end of the world) then starts punishing with their wallet, the manufacturers should start changing or else their bean counters will have bad mood and starts threatening everyone inside :D

@Mista The concept is called Cyclical Consumption. :(

Let's just hope it's a 5MP sensor.
With my cell phone, no matter how many MP's it has. I always take pics on the 3MP setting, going higher in resolution only gets you more MB's and longer loading times... quality diffirence is non existant.

A dslr takes a 2MP picture with more detail than any 8MP cell phone camera...

Though all this has been said millions of times. When will they ever start listening?

Not an Iphone hater, but i'm guessing they are doing again what they did with the 3G to 3GS. Nothing major will be done, just an upgraded camera and newer version of the IOS.
The new design and new features will be out sometime next year.
Shame Apple should have invested in something more of what the Consumer wants, More flexibility. I think if they add the basic features such as Mass storage, and non reliability on iTunes and Bluetooth file transfer the iPhone will attract more customers including myself. :)
At this stage I will not buy one to jailbreak it and go through the hassle when I can buy a phone out of the box which doesn't require all the mucking around.
All the best to all the iFans :).

That would be a pain in ... to compare andriod and iOS, both of them has their own marketing specialty. Andriod, so far, what i dont like is most high-end handsets are make of Plastic bodies which makes u feel so cheap ALTHOUGH the software is more open, flexible.
But Apple, however, although i like their handsets for being solid and strong, they are so cheap on their software which followed customers around for money even after they walked out the store, the main disadvantage is lacks of Flash...

The "iPhone" is the worst mobile phone name this decade.

1. No flash
2. No SD card
3. No Bluetooth file transfer
4. No way of doing anything without connecting to itunes.

Need I go on.
