iPhone 4 with iOS4 is way way ahead of N8.... I guess competition is over before the start... Just compare the two models and you will know it yourself... :-)
I am loving it.... Apple!!

Everyday I've been seeing all people complainning and commenting of handphone ! The use of of phone is depend of individual interest.
- If you prefer to have higher processor. Please go get a 10Gb ram notebook.
- If you prefer to have good camera. Please go buy a high end digital camera.
- If you prefer to have good screen. Please go search for a LED screen TV.
- If ou prefer to have loud & clear sound. Please go find a 7.1 surround sound home system (300watts amplifier)

Having suffered at the hands of the Nokia's N97 i will not be holding my breath. Problem is Nokia do not seem willing to add more RAM, sure Symbian is pretty efficient where Ram is concerned but are they sure that third party apps will be the same?
Why not not just pump it up to 512??

I know what is going on on Android, and if you feel you have been burnt by Nokia you are right to stay away, I am justing pointing out that there is no objective basis to dismiss the N8 now. Its completely different to the N97. And about the Ovi navigation, I like it better than Google's. Plus, it works all over the world. Plus, it uses offline maps. Big deal in Europe when roaming.

iPhone 4 16GB would be USD100 expensive then Nokia n8. for this 100 bucks what are the difference?
iPhone over N8: Over here in Europe, unlocked, the difference is 160 to 230, depending on taxes.

1) better Display resolution with IPS and better sunlight view ability.

2) Processor and Graphics. WRONG, benchmarks say N8 owns A4.
3) Great App store.
4) Best OS and UI. Best UI, terrible OS.
5) gyro sensor. Can it find kebabs too? Kidding.
6) Really slim design and beautiful too. So is the N8, no difference.
7) 11% larger display.
8) last and the most important. A device where all the mentioned features actually work and don't just end up being something great on paper. Which is something you cannot assess for the N8 yet, thank you.

N8 over iPhone 4
1) HDMI TV output.
2) 12 MP camera + xenon flash
3) USB on the go
4) Dolby Digital
5) Free life time Navigation
FLASH supporting browser, big deal!


Miscellaneous feature advantages not mentioned in both the list.

On a different note, even in the US, on engadget, the N8 stacks up nicely against the new Iphone. At a fraction of the price of the other devices, the N8 will be a sure hit.

You guys really believe about the 12hrs talk time? Nokia phones are poor when it comes to battery management, im willing to be my life that real world talk time is less than 8hrs on a fully charged battery. If you get over 5hrs then your pretty damn lucky!

2 days music playback is IMPOSSIBLE for this phone probably 15-16hrs at best.

Unlike n900 which had no support for java apps, n8 supports java and hence apps like opera mini & others will run on it.

> In reply to Trula @ 2010-06-08 10:45 from 2Ap6 - click to readN8 doesn't have much support because it runs maemo. Its about the only phone running that os. Symbian has the largest collection of apps and by far the largest of free apps. I just hope symbian^3 would be compatible with symbian^1 apps.

As far as i'm concerned, iphone is popular because of its simplicity. It is made for the below average people who don't know anything about mobiles and technology and have tonnes of cash in their pockets. How else can you explain someone paying so much a phone without multitasking or java support? These are things i don't think i can live without.

The only edge iphone 4g has over the n8 is its staggering screen resolution. (which i find excessive and unnecessary) its almost magical. All other ways, its not a competition. The n8 flogs the shit out of the i phone.
