I asked NPD here in Hyderabad, India, he said me that N8 launch has been delayed by 3 weeks, when i asked him more, he told me that he got this info directly from Nokia base office in Delhi.
Wheez, 16 Sep 2010You are forgetting the dedicated GPU that your phone, whatever you are comparing the N8 to, la... moreIt would be a very balanced phone if it was not from Symbian of course.
And by the way... this was supposed to be Nokia's top of the line. They failed yet again to enter the top phone market.
Let's just hope they finish their Meego, it will maybe bring them back in the smartphone market.
[deleted post]You are forgetting the dedicated GPU that your phone, whatever you are comparing the N8 to, lacks.
Also, what's poor about the screen? Super AMOLEDs arnt supplied to anyone but Samsung cos they manufacture them, so that's not an option.
Resolution could be bigger, but personally I think it fits the 3,5" screen very well, and it would even look off it was bigger reso. If 3½" makes a screen poor, why not get a 50" TV right away, it's surely better than ur 4" or whatever ur device has.
Get real, get ur facts straight. This phone is probably the best balanced phone out there.
Ansh, 16 Sep 2010thought samsung wave to be my phone for 4 yrs but now..on loading heavy web pages it shows mem... moreI hope ppl understand tat talking big is nt impt...but performing in real life is impt...wave is a nice fone but every fone has its limits...after being 1ghz its still has memory low...so I think Nokia did a smart thing by installing a best GPU in N8...u need to balance things in life....

Anonymous, 16 Sep 2010I was waiting for to buy N8 but release is delayed Again. http://www.slashgear.com/nokia-... moreYeah a lot of these reports have been popping up. But i don't think they are credible until nokia says so. And the official word from them is still a sept end release like the websites of US and UK say. So i'm just hoping for the best. And a nokia priority salesman told me just today that n8 will be releasing in india on monday. Don't know if it's true but the dummies have started appearing in shops
Hope Gsmarena can do a voting results on the Best Colour people would like the N8 in,as i seem to be stuck on the Colour i would my N8 in,as i have had Black an Silver mobiles before so might choose my N8 in Green or Blue,Green to me will stand out more an easy to see when its dark at Night time
Anonymous, 16 Sep 2010Only 680MHz ARM? Ohhhhhh nooooooooo!It's even underclocked, don't forget that this thing sports a dedicated GPU, that in normal use makes the phone equal to having 1Ghz processor alone.
In some things having only that 1ghz would've been better, in many things it probably ends up nicer having 680mhz and a GPU.
its a very gud phone guyz i hav seen dis phone the camera and vedio clarity is very gud ......... in ths phone yo can connect pendrive til 120 gb its awsome and unique feauture ........... x10,samsung glasxy sucks whn compare to n8
Definitely my next phone,or maybe c7 coz i think i dont really need 12mp camera.
brynn, 16 Sep 2010The nokia n96 had good video and audio playback times cause it used dedicated proccessors to a... morethe 50 hrs of music play back are in the offline mode.
the broadcom gpu produces 32M triangles per second which is much less than the 90M triangles per second of the galaxy s and the iphone 4.
the benchmark results of the n8 the iphone 4 and the galaxy showed that the braodcom gpu is better in HD video recording and play back but in gaming the hummingbird processor of the other phones is the king.
