To all wavers present here....
Wave is a good phone and is a sure competition for the N8 even excelling in some departments like display and processor. But wave sure lacks some features that is already present in most symbian nokia phones..
First up is the PC suite software. The samsung KIES is miles behind of what nokia offers through OVI suite. OVI suite has everything that is required for seamless connectivity with the PC. Nokia also releases firmware updates worldwide and is a breeze updating the firmware. But as of today, wavers have to resort to unorthodox methods to get their waves upto date. This is a continuation of the poor support that samsung provides its customers (remember omnia HD dont you?)
Next up is the free navigation. It's a must now a days for a smart phone with GPS capabilities. OVI maps is unmatches here and is a must have feature especially if you come from a symbian background.
And there is the list of the already available apps. I'm not talking about millions of them but some of the basic ones like I use fring and skype for video chatting and for making voip calls using Google talk. Some of the other things missing in wave but already available for symbian phones are
1) Quick office with doc editing
2) Adobe reader Lite
3) Flash lite
4) Lack of 3rd party themes
5) Google Maps ( not the java version)
7) Tune wiki
8) Last FM client
9) Opera Mobile
10) Sym torrent (or any torrent client)
These are things that I cannot live without on my phone. So unless wave comes up with these apps support or an alternative, wave though with all the eyecandy features can never beat the N8 or any other Nokia with symbian os. It's that simple
I think people a focusing too much on the bad aspects of this phone (the screen, the OS and the CPU). Instead they should focus a bit more on the good things, like the awesome camera, brilliant (imo at least) aluminum design and HDMI.
Nokia N8 commercial goes live in India. Indicates earlier than expected launch.
It is the worst model from nokia why nokia launches the same features mobile but of different price this time nokia is going to lose their share in indian mobile market
Nokia is losing ground, most of the people are turning away from nokia. symbian-guru.com which used to be a big fan of nokia and symbian has stopped reviewing symbian mobiles and applications. another site symbianguru.com (without the -) which used to develop symbian applications now has started developing android applications.
Symbian is no doubt a great OS when it comes to functionality, the problems is not with what we can do with it, the problem is how we do. that's where symbian is miles behind iOS or Android.
And another problem with nokia's flagship mobiles is that they arrive very late nokia keep on working on it until people start to get frustrated and move away from it, and eventually when they do release it, it comes with bag full of bugs.
I hope it's not the case with N8
[deleted post]I didnt say that u r barking ! I used it for those samsung fans who used to bark here since a long time ! U r wrong ! Hehehe :)
For the N8 680mhz+powerful brodcom GPU is enough ! In those youtube videos N8's performance is good enough with the os and firmware which is not finalized ! I ll prefer a very well balanced N8 rather than any other phone & I can wait ! Hehehe
[deleted post]Just like N8 has 12mp xenon and wave has just a 5mp with a led (itz just nothing) ! Hehehe

i hav watched avatar , n yesterday i watched drag me to hell and spread !! a... moreAnd I am not here to bash N8 mate. :) I was waiting for that only when I got my hands on wave. That is why I am on this thread because i had been observing N8 and had been waiting for it. Though I am glad that N8 is not released, because I would have regretted if I had come across wave after buying N8. :)
But the display, yes, and its not only N8's, but every other phone's display is behind it. So much so, it only gets compared to Apple's retina display that took them 4 generations of Iphones to build. And some find it even better than that.
And every phone has its ups and downs mate. Like N8 has Usb OTG which wave doesnt have. And it has a more renowned OS, therefore, more apps.
I just came here today to see what has been happening with N8. :) Going back to Wave's forum now. Tc.

i hav watched avatar , n yesterday i watched drag me to hell and spread !! a... moreIts brighter than dual LED flash that is currently available on most phones. :) I never thought i'd ever watch a full movie on a cellphone. But mate, I stand corrected. I bought it on 2nd of july and I have watched Avatar, Saving private Ryan, Godfather, Batman begins, the dark knight on it. :) :) It is truly HD. I mentioned Avatar because it really shows you what that display is capable of !
Have you played the NFS shift btw ? Makes me wonder how I ever lived without it.
@ new waver
i hav watched avatar , n yesterday i watched drag me to hell and spread !! awesome display ...n8's amoled is far behind ! how did u find the flash of the phone its damn bright !! BADA is beautiful
Anonymous, 31 Jul 2010does the sensitivity of the mulit touch similiar to the apple already? thanks more power!Both are capacitative touch screens so yes. Though the accuracy depends on the implementation, and cannot be judged before it has been launched. The response time depends heavily on the software, and though it seems responsive enough in the videos, no1 can really say without experiencing it themselves.
