hey i m also waiting for n8 as all other nokia fans are, but in a dilemma and perhaps one of u can hlp me out that i have used many models of nokia phones and i must admit that all the phones used to get hanged up due to whatever reasons i dont know(may be due to third party apps). anyway i believe that n8 may also hang up several times, and in order to restart the phone, we will have to remove the battery and place it again. but seriously, will we always have to unscrew? which cannot be done every where and will be a discomfort :)

The last video of the N8, the one with the Music player etc, is just SO smooth. Guess that ARM 11 works well in the end huh :)

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2010-06-12 13:21 from vp93 - click to readIf you knew anything about mobile phones and processors, you would know that the numbers quoted for a processor do not determine the speed of the device. If fact, it is possible for a 'slower' processor to be process more data that its 'faster' counterpart per unit time. You would also know that the optimum processor requirement of a mobile is almost in totality dictated by its os. This means a 'slower' processor may run an os faster than a 'faster' processor would run another. In fact, the only thing about a processor that can be predicted by its 'numbers' is the amount of power it consumes and the amount of waste heat it produces. You would should therefore understand that its every designers interest to put the best processor and nothing excess. The processor in the n8 is a 750 downclocked to 680. Why in your opinion would nokia down clock the cpu?

Would you prefer a 1500 removable battery and a 5800 sized phone to this model? The battery quotations are good enough. Nokia is trying to sell phones not impress you. I for one, wont mind a thick or even ugly phone so long it performs but the majority do.

25 frames a second is good enough. My only disappointment in this phone is the mono speakers. . .

Our interest is getting hit by apple sheep all over. We need some real daily interest boosts here. Where have all the Nokia fans gone? Everyone needs to come back. So we can walk all over Iphone 4 again.

Yes & report of the first release N8 firmware being already very stable with not many bugs. Nokia knows now that future S^ phones need a good start, need to look good, need to be simple to use, pretty to look at etc... This area Nokia needs to have handsets working well with no issues. All we need in Symbian is convergence. Apples has 200,000 aps, Android 50,000 apps.

Symbian needs some real interested parties, developers, community, from every platform now the code is open, to bring S^ ahead of it's competition. Can this be done. Never say never. e need real motivation, confidence, that this OS is a little powerhouse of a gem over the rest of the competition.

Why nokia should be given respect?

They invested billions in developing gsm umts etc patents

they have put much effort into the symbian and meego os

they wont overprice their phone like apple does
