For all you sooks crying about the delays....get over it. I can just imagine how you would all react if they released it early and full of bugs,so instead of another N97 stuff-up,they hold it back to make sure its fine and...you have a big cry. I,for one,dont care about waiting. Im happy that nokia are taking thier time with this,because its going to be great!
End of quarter 3 tommorrow,annndddd still not here.Got sammy wave and enjoying it,could be dead before they ship this thing???

This phone kicks arse (one DAMN beauty), eagerly waiting for it ...being in india, m gonna ve to wait for it till mid november though :-( arghhh
Price definitely seems to be less. But does anyone out there knows the exact price?
in some sites its RS.22000, some 23 some even 28… so its very much certain its between 22 and 28k. I’d say its like 24-25k as the specs aint that impressive with just 680 mhz processor and 256 RAM whereas the whopping 1ghz snapdragons and hummmingbirds are romin around with price range of 16k’s. But the 12MP carl zeiss optics with 28mm wide angle lens and xenon flash will be something for which i am willing to pay 25k…. So lets keep our fingers crossed

Coming Mid oct in singapore
Price is very good its preorder price is singapore dollar 789
pre booking started in india-check nokia.in site, but no price given as yet....
Am Glad nokis use arm 11 plus decent broadcom gpu to makre this phone run smoothly, it is t he best combans ti on for symbian 3 devices, hence we can have much cheaper and powerful nokia phones
[deleted post]just how n8 had to copy capacitive screen, multitouch,coverflow fr iph to survive. But comparing n8 to iph4 is unfair since iph4 is top end and n8 is midrange
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2010N8 is NOT better than Samsung Wave!
And Wave is NOT PLASTIC LINE!
Wave have fine metal body ... morehey wavy boy..wake up...there is no way in which u can compare n8 with wave ok?.its like the rat fighting with a lion(n8)..even though wave does have bada os,it lacks many functions like multitasking and all.and its pics taken in its camera only luks good in the phone's screen becoz of the super amoled,but wen u put it onto comp...u vl get to knw how poor the clarity is...i mean the lighting.i used wave for 1 month and just sold it away just like that..the only thing i liked in it was the super amoled screen..it was realy outstanding.but it can never be considered as a smartphone.n8 does stand above wave at all aspects...like camera...hdmi option,..plug and touch feature by which u can turn ur lcd tv,projector,etc.. into a touch screen(the best faeture ever in phones),..usb..,and wide screen hd video recording..,symbian 3 os,stylish built,and as usual the user friendlyness.i havnt found any other company other than nokia manufacturing user friendly phones.
nokia rocks as always.
and i do feel sory for the delay made by nokia to release n8...but remember guys....we hav to always wait for the best to come. late aa vandaalum latesta varum ;-)

Stuntman, 29 Sep 2010I think what N97mini_user wants is a fast start up time. My N97 takes about a minute to turn ... moreBlackberry turns on in a matter of seconds???
If you wanna see how long BB need time to boot up, remove the battery first, insert it again, then turn it on.
You'll see that BB need eons to boot up
Wheez, 29 Sep 2010Maybe cultural difference, but the N97 isnt designed to be turned off daily. Then again, N97 w... morePhones (whether it's the N97, N8, Blackberry or whatever brand) should be expected to be turned off from time to time. For instance, I'm sure a typical smartphone user will periodically go to a movie theatre where he is expected to turn off his phone. I'm sure there are many other activities that smartphone users partake in where he would need to turn off his phone. When he turns it back on again, it is a benefit to have it start up more quickly than slowly.
I'm not sure what cultural differences there is where you are from. At least where I am from (Canada), it is considered bad etiquette to have your cell phone on in a movie theatre when the movie is playing. Also, where I work, it is good etiquette to turn off your personal cell phone during work.
