well lets see if nokia can get it right this time the new N8. N8 with symbian big fat flop. N8 with WP7 huge success.

you do the maths. nokia could wrapped up best cam phone last year with this. but no.

we need 1ghz cpu or dual core.

14 or 16 meg cam. and wp7 or just dont bother.

better to buy a canon camera if you are photography fan. With mobile camera, one always struggle with digital and optical zoom.

Well considering they are now in a partnership with WP and interest for this platform has been growing... they would not use any other OS. They want to ditch Symbian and Elop is not so enthusiastic about the N9 and the MeeGo platform. My guess is Windows Phone will be the OS of the next N8.

So even Nokia doesn't think N9 isn't worth enough.
That explains a lot.

I would prefer Meego! Yesterday I played a little bit with a Nokia N9, and it's fantastic! The UI is pleasant and cool! The UI of Windows looks horrible(to me).

I read on mynokiablog that according to a leak, it would still be powered by symbian. And have a WVGA screen and 3x optical zoom, yes, WVGA screen and 3x optical zoom and with symbian, as we all know that Nokia is working on bringing true zoom to cameraphones.

i think it's worth the wait. n8 so far is the best camera phone, so the successor will surely don't fall short.
