Matt, 30 Aug 2010Don't you know that an .avi file can be just about ANY FORMAT?
testing an ".avi" fi... morei know wt divx and wt avi format file is...
i m not a newbie to the phones who play divx format files..
i just have shared wt i hv experienced..
rest is on u..
AMANITA, 30 Aug 20101. It supports live wallpaperz.
2. It has divX support natively,confirmed by nokia and damian... morebelieve it or not..
once u get this handset u will get to know wt i was talking abt..
i hv spent 5 hrs with this handset..
i have omnia hd i8910 which supports divx, i have tried playing the same file but the handset shows an error message: this file format is not supported..
and if we talk abt live wallpapers which i use in omnia hd, even they didnt work with nokia n8, once u put in and try using them u only get a pure white screen..
remember wt i said and when u get hands on nokia n8..
den u will say hey buddy u were ryte..
Nokia phones will be hacked for Android OS, look at the N900 it has been hacked and runs Android.
just a small but useful little bit of info for those that still think the screen is capacitive:
capacitive screens can only be used with your finger; no glove, no stylus, no nothing besides your finger(s).
seeing as it has handwriting recognition, unless you plan on writing with your finger it can't be capacitive.
nokia never said anything about a capacitive screen, and all of it's touchscreens have always used resistive screens, so unless proven otherwise you should assume it is resistive.
that being said, i'm open to any argument any of you might have to prove the screen is in fact capacitive.
seeing as capacitives don't work with a stylus, it might be a "hybrid", but that's highly unlikely.
i will buy bn8
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2010If The Samsung Galaxy is an iPhone killer than why hasn't the iPhone died.....LOL
In fact i... moreIphone is sucks in many thngs, it is a nice phone in certain ways, but if it had the features of the Galaxy S and N8 then it would be a awsome phone.
But Iphone is not the best phone at this moment sorry to say that, but the fact and specs does not lie.
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2010you can't compare garmin( or gps soft-igo,navigon) with ovi maps, and try to use nokia maps on... moreWhy would someone want to use Ovi Maps on roaming? All the maps can be downloaded in advance so why would you need an internet connection?
jai rocks, 30 Aug 2010specs are not 100 percent correct..
it doeesnt play avi format files...
i have tried that..Don't you know that an .avi file can be just about ANY FORMAT?
testing an ".avi" file for playback is totally not representative for Divx support

jai rocks, 30 Aug 2010hi frends, there is an important information for all of you.. i don"t think that people... morehey jai- i wait your revue after you use the phone for at least 1 month- i'm sure there will be more problems and more neg.
there is an important information for all of you..
i don"t think that people from nokia have actually discussed the problems that they are facing with nokia n8..
my uncle is on higher post at Nokia India Head Office
which is in SP Infocity,
Industrial Plot no. 243
Udyog Vihar, Phase 1,
i don"t wana disclose his name out here..
so today i have got the hands on nokia n8..
so lemme share my experience with u..
things which i liked the most..
screen display is really impressive..
has velvet touch..
phone ui is pretty fast when compared with previous nokia phones..
camera is something which i should say unbeatable..
looks pretty handy and attractive..
scrolling and other features are excellent..
please don"t compare its speed or ui to android or iphone os..it doesnt lag anywhere but cant be compared to other os..
casing is smthing for which we all should appreciate nokia..no need to put in covers as dey are scratch-less..data transfer speed is pretty fast..
things which are hided by nokia..
for users in india (will not get all colours)
only black and silver are available till now..
hopefully green will be available too..
but orange and blue will not be available..
this device doesnt support divx so will not play avi format..will play those videos only thru third part applications..
will get only a basic kit..
no bluetooth headphones..
european countries will get those..
if u try to change sim card while phone is on,
will not show network signals for the inserted one..
if u put the one which was in earlier will detect..
dis is the main reason for delay..
if u want to use different carrier u will have to reset ur phone..and dats the only option..
it can detect portable hard disks upto 500 gb and
usb sticks upto 16gb(not more den dat) when using usb on the go support..
colours are not dat vibrant as was in samsung i8910 omnia hd..
doesnt support live wallpapers..
spb mobile shell doesnt work on symbian 3..
there are so many applications dat doesnt work on this platform..
themes of s60 v5 can be installed but will show up as they usually show up in s60 v5 versions(so not of use as doesnt look nice)..
new homescreen is something which u will like and there are certain new features(like pinch to zoom) which will make u feel good but if somebody has used omnia hd with hyperx vx roms..for those guys i feel pity as we have seen most of the features in andy"s roms..anyways at last nokia has put a step forward towards evolution not revolution..
im definitely gonna buy this phone as soon as it steps in the market..
for guys who dont wana buy this media monster and wants to wait till nokia n9 comes in,
guys who love clicking pix should go for this phone as we dnt know wheather nokia will ever be able to produce any phone with such a lovely camera..
for me its a usefull phone, as i think of present..
y to wait wen we r not sure wts gonna come in future..
ui will be better for sure in future phones but the kinda hardware it has or it supports may not be available in future nokia phones..
somebody has truly said: hit the rod when its hot.
