The N8 & especially S^3 are supremely dedicated to using as little energy as possible. In fact S^3 has the smallest carbon footprint & promotes GREEN. It does more to save the planet & cut energy over any phone ever made. Thanks to extremely low power computational application processors & S^3's new Micro Kernel.
Bluetooth 3 does utilize an 802.11 module for 24mbps data transfer rates. New bluetooth architecture along with new Bluetooth power profile allows the bluetooth module to in effect drop to deep sleep state not using any energy until triggered by a function which needs it. So it will always be on but avtually in effect off most of the time. It's very very low power efficiency. The SIG team have created a great bluetooth high speed design. The n8 is indeed about breaking & using the lowest energy it can. S^3 is at the core of supporting all these super low power technologies.

Don't forget N8 is using AMOLED technology which is also a monster in display area.

drummond86, 08 Jun 2010Good camera, shame about the rest of the phone with its below standard features, lol!Which is why even engadget gave it more positives than the Iphone 4 and twice as many as the Evo....
N8 kicks ass.
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2010is the nokia n8 a better buy that the samsung i9000 galaxy s and does anyone have any idea wha... moreBoth devices are great, but they cant be compared to each other, each one is uniqe!

IamAnonymous, 08 Jun 2010take a moment and think about this:
the n8 and the iphone have the same screen size. the n8 ... moreNo doubt the iphone has a much better screen but the question is how many of those 600000+ pixels can you actually see? The nokia n8 pixel density is perfect. The iphones is excessive. You'ld only appreciate that much pixels if you view your screen with a magnifying glass.
Besides, what use is a good screen with nothing to display. The iphone os is the crappiest piece of shit there ever was. Its comparable to nokia proprietor os. The type used on the 5130.
Nokia n8 kicks the hell out of the iphone from which ever angle you look at it. Come on. 5mp! That is so 2007. + no multitasking, no flash, no java. . .
Ali Abdulla, 08 Jun 2010Bluetooth 3.0 uses the wireless card... if its on all the time, it will drain the battery. and... morei know this aint the correct forum to ask, but well:

N8, 08 Jun 2010Are you saying the bluetooth on n8 can be set to switch on automatically when needed?
What ... moreBluetooth 3.0 uses the wireless card... if its on all the time, it will drain the battery. and for nothing :D
