nokia n82 has the best camera ever. even the iphone 4's 5mp camera took an ass-kick from n82's camera.. i haven't seen any phone having that powerful camera, specially the powerful xenon flash. :D

If the connectors would be facing sideways then it would be even slimmer.
Assembly would be like patching on hole on the PCB - making the entire board flat.
Maybe the next version...

However the likes of android are running on open platforms resulting in less optimisation, its like comparing a pc and a ps3/xbox, both are good at what they do, the console will be a little smoother with its optimised software , but a pc will have much more raw power and vesatility, and if you take the high end pc's you can build their wont be a console around for years that could its capabilities

Too bad that's the only thing that is good at.
This is not really a smartphone os that's why Nokia is flushing it to the toilet.
Did you ever tried browsing with it? I'd rather jump from a building.

"I was using an SGS2 just the other day and despite the 1.2GHZ dual core processor and Exynos GPU there was still notable interface LAG."

There is no such thing like a Exynos GPU.

LMFAO.. I was using an SGS2 just the other day and despite the 1.2GHZ dual core processor and Exynos GPU there was still notable interface LAG. How pathetic is that? By contrast, IOS and WP7 have virtually ZERO lag, even though they run on less power.
