N8 will almost reach 3.8 million hits and 80,000 votes.
Help me raise the ratings! VOTE IT 10 10 10 !! I hate HATERS so much.
@ BERT. N8 supports landscape QWERTY texting. It will be flawless because N8 boasts an AMOLED 3.5" capacitive touchscreen. It will responsive. :D Of what you're asking. N8 doesn't have portrait qwerty layout. N8 has the alphanumeric virtual keypad with refreshed looks. I think it can be possible to have one via third party application. Can anyone correct me if I'm wrong? Please. Thanks.
Nokia N8 will almost reach 3.8 million hits and 80,000 votes. With the daily interest percentage of 93%.
Can you please help me raise the ratings of N8! Vote it 10 10 10! I hate the HATERS so much! X)
Symbian 3 is goodness. I hate people complaining about it. you better leave this DECENT FORUM. Based from S1. I have used it all over again. First was Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. It works good. We can't deny that 5800 is a phone that rocked the world. It even topped the most in demand cellphone in UK stores. After 5800, I used N97 32 GB. The software is really bad. The ARM 11 434 mhz and 128 MB SDRAM is harmful to the handset. I liked the design of N97 at the back. Samsung Vibrant copied the N97's back panel. Just look at it. After using the N97 which is a big disappointment, I purchased Nokia X6 which has the capacitive touchscreen and the fabulous 5 MP camera which shoots decent photos. Overall these Nokia smartphones all equipped with ARM 11 434 mhz and insufficient RAM. My Symbian total user experience was good enough for me. I love the total functionalities. Though it hangs and freezes sometimes. I've been used to it. HAHAHAHA! :DD
N8 with ARM 11 680 mhz is good enough. It is equipped with a Broadcom GPU which even showed more triangles over Samsung Galaxy S. The 256 MB SDRAM is also good enough. Just look at the Nokia N900, it is a multitasking beast right?! The 256 MB ram will be enough.
I believe this is really the Nokia Savior. I know Nokia will not fail us.
I live in the Philippines and confirmed that N8 is coming in our country. N8 is priced PHP 46,850 or USD 1033.91 WHOA! How shocking. I can buy two e72s with 46,850. There is really a limited number of stocks because the unit is really expensive. I wonder why it is far from the promised 370 euros.
Ill still buy N8 because I like the multimedia features like 12mp, hd video recording, can play divx/xvid codec, dolby surround, webTV etc.
N8 is confirmed coming to the Philippines on the FIRST WEEK OF SEPTEMBER.
By the time this phone is actually released, there will be a lot of much faster, better spec'd phones for the same price, even for the camera.
That's sad. I'd have bough it a month ago. I'd buy maybe today, although I'd feel a bit off with the browser (the N8 browser kinda sucks and all you get is a rumored update in ages from now)
But instead I'm receiving a galaxy s monday.
I think it's a very shared feeling, unless you're a hardcore nokia fan, the waiting game of the N8 is not worth it anymore
i am really interested to buy this phone
but i want 2 knw the price of it in bahrain dinar and which month will it be released
and also i want 2 knw if its user friendly?
its gud 4 nokia users dat n8 popularity is increasing day by day.so lets hope nokia is doing a great planning 4 n8 to release all over the world bt nokia should think twice abt its price.i think its price should b reasonable.i m not saying affordable 4 every one only and only reasonable price.so nokia 4 what u r waiting 4 jusssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssttttttttttttttttttttttttttt release it.n8 rock the world.

Nuwan, 14 Aug 2010Dear friends,
So many people here is complaining about Symbian OS... But being a Symbian us... more@Nuwan: I have read ur full post and i agree in all point with u.....Really Thanks for ur post
That was the point what i want to explane to everyone.
Symbian 3 and Symbian 4 are written with the same develeopment Framework QT. That means that both OS S^3 ans S4 will have very good compatibility. Apps from S^4 can easily ported to S^3.
In S^4 tha main changes will be the UI improvements and any other implements but in major the UI.
So when we N8 interest will bought a S^3 device we wont regret it because like Nuwan said it will take in my opinion very long time that we will see S^4 devices on the market. Im expecting the first devices in beginning of 2012.
And to everyone who believes that N8 will get an update to S^4. Nokia wont do that. Nokia want to ad the S^4 OS as a revolution and they must push new devices for it. An upgrade for n8 would avoid that many customers invest their money for S^3 devices which would be a failure for Nokia.
Also S^4 will support in my opinion 800x480 pixels which N8 dont support = )
Now thats my opinion. N8 has future compatibility with Qt , dont forget that. So we will see many Apps for it
I think in general more games because n8 is the first multitouch+capacitive screen device
it was DLNA certified at the first spec shown, now UPnP on it WiFi... any explanations..?
I think this is the best NOKIA phone that I ever seen and this for sure the best phone ever.!!!!I like it..
Can anybody using nokia n8 help me out whether i should go for it or is there a better option available in the same price range.
Thanks in advance.
So many people here is complaining about Symbian OS... But being a Symbian user for years, I really can't complain that it's a less powerful OS... Not at all...!
Some other people are waiting for Symbian 4 in a situation where even the first Symbian 3 device hasn't been released yet...! Very funny...!
Let me tell you... Microsoft Windows XP came to the market at 2001 and it was very popular since then... Vista came around 2006 and then Windows 7 came on 2009... BUT so many computer experts in Sri Lanka are still using same old Windows XP which is 9 years old now...! So nobody can't say with the introduction of a New OS, the old OS will be obsolete... No... It won't happen... (I'm pretty sure of it...)
My next point is, regarding the software developers... If I were a software developer I would love to see my software are being popular... Remember... Developers don't care about the age of the OS.. They only care about the popularity of the OS... For an example, Meego is a great OS... But 3rd party software is Very very less compared to Symbian... Why...? Because Meego is not so popular... But Nokia N8 will be popular and it's showing every sign that it'll be a market hit on Nokia's history... So I'm pretty sure, Developers will be very glad to make software for Symbian 3 by just looking at the demand of the mobile... (Nokia 5800 is the first Nokia touchscreen phone... and first S60 V5 device... but within a year, it was one of the OS which has plenty of 3rd party software...! Why...? Because developers saw the demand & popularity of 5800 and they created loads of software accordingly...)
My third point is, even though software developers wants to create software for Symbian 4, they'll do that with the compatibility of Symbian 3 because that way they'll have the both OS market... Get what I'm saying...? That's why Windows software always comes with these words... "Compatible with XP, Vista and 7" that way they can have all three markets...! So I don't really think, any software developer will create software only for Symbian 4 while knowing about the popularity of Symbian 3 Nokia N8...! (They are not that fool...)
My last point is, even though there are rumors that Symbian 4 will be released on 2011... I really don't think that's possible... Even though it's possible I really don't think Nokia will release a Symbian 4 device that quickly because as we all know, Nokia is not so hurry to release new models with new OS... They do lots of researching before releasing a produce unlike Samsung or any other brand... So my best guess for first Nokia Symbian 4 device is on 2013... If you don't believe me, you can wait and see...
I think I made my points very clearly here... I could be wrong.. My knowledge may be very limited... (So I would like to know your opinion too...)
Special Note for "Engineer Man" brother...:
YOU'RE BEING VERY HELPFUL HERE... APPRECIATE YOUR POSTS A LOT... I'M A FAN OF YOU AND READ ALL YOUR POSTS... THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR BEING A HUMAN BEING...
> I am seriously considering buying an N8 now I have flip flopped the idea between then when it was announced and now and pretty much ruled it out a while ago
Why are you writing for a Nokia blog then?
> after using other platforms for extensive periods I don’t see a huge difference between them and Symbian
REALLY? I do. And I’ve been a software developer 27 years, so know a good system when I see it. Android is technically limited and pretty basic in it’s user experience. iPhone is little more than a Fisher-Price Toy (“My First Phone” for babies). iPhone has contributed some good user interface design features, and Android has contributed nothing but competition, but Symbian is MILES ahead.
You don’t need to be a Nokia fanboy, and it’s good you’re not, but you ruled out an N8?!
I wish more people would realize that.
Symbian is POWERFUL, the only OS with a real multitasking… and it’s got features and functions way above of what Android and iOS(lol) offer.
However, it’s still lacking in the UI department, I like the setup(system layout)… homescreens with widgets + if you don’t want that, there is a traditional Symbian “Menu” but small things need improvement(like for example parsing phone numbers and links in the “Notes” application), needs more smoothness and responsiveness.
> iPhone is little more than a Fisher-Price Toy (“My First Phone” for babies).
That’s why the iPhone is doing so badly! You should write to Steve Jobs and set him straight. He’ll probably thank you.
Seriously. All you are showing here is your snobbery and trying desperately to prove that you are superior. The iPhone is winning because it brought mobile data and apps to the masses, something Nokia tried to do and failed. The features in which Symbian is “miles ahead” turned out not to matter.
Try not to be a people-hater.
I have to say that having only really become a mobile gimp this year, I’ve found the evolution of the n8 very interesting. From looking terrible early on, to the latest video which has it looking pretty smart, it’s left me feeling a bit regretful that I won’t be buying it. But then again, if I did buy it, it’s almost a certainty that I’d be feeling the same regret about the N9 and MeeGo.
