I think everybody who claims N8 is very responsive must watch this video

He presses the dialer Button 5 times every second.

From 0:53 to 0:57 and then he gets it exactly the CALL DIALLER open at 0:58.

Even the hardware button, he presses twice or thrice and then it responds.

Please watch it carefully. This video will give clear picture of responsiveness of N8.

I am not going to judge and tell you whether it fails.

Watch it yourself.

good question, I own the N900 and I am very tempted to get the N8. I think the N900 is more of a computer, qwerty, resistive screen, and fantastic os.

N8 is better cam better flash, capacitive screen, very new OS (S^3).

N8 has better build quality too.

If you are a nerd like me get the N900, if not get the N8!

Cheers

Low light Video Sample: Nokia N8 at Rihanna Concert


This video of a Rihanna gig (I think in Tel-Aviv, Israel) is supposedly captured on a Nokia N8 according to uploader, Tal Tetievski.

* The video is in 720p and recorded in stereo audio.
* Stereo separation is obvious but this probably isnít the best scene to demonstrate it.
* Considering how loud concerts are, the N8 performed extremely well picking up the audio without too much harshness (only audible on left side -seems to be more wind blowing rather than inability to record extremely loud audio which most camera phones fail beautifully at)
* Lots of changes between quite dark to lots of light and N8 handles transitions extremely well.
* Quality is quite impressive as this isnít optimum lighting conditions for video, look at the confetti and the richness of the colours at certain scenes.
* Check out the usable digital zoom, which is actually worth using compared to most digital zoom that just blows up pixels.
* Shakiness is an issue, but then again the recorder is at a gig, thus jumping up and down, waving their hands about often results in shaky video.
* Video looks sufficiently fluid. No jerkiness, the frame rate looks smooth.
* Wide angle for widescreen 16:9 video looks fantastic, capturing more of the scene within the frame.
* People at Rihanna concert should be banned from bringing umbrellas. Yes, we get it. Man, so many eyes that could have been stabbed out! -_^

Jump to 2:10 for some pinch and zooming. It looks much smoother from second attempt onwards.

Video playback is almost instant after pressing. No loading screen, just playback.

SE does have FM transmitter functionality and they included it in Model launched in 2008, July. The model is Sony Ericsson W980. This is 2 years before and Now you are talkng about N8 having FM transmitter. Nokia is always Late.

> In reply to Mark @ 2010-06-05 10:40 from mbyw - click to readHe goes on to say that

"MeeGo has the potential of creating something thatís deeper than you find on a typical smartphone".

Typical Smartphone can be one running on Android, RIM OS, Windows Mobile and can be Symbian as well. The meaning of above statement is MeeGo has higher potential than a typical smartphone. And thats why I am saying MeeGo is future and Not Symbian and Nokia itself is trying for that.

> In reply to Mark @ 2010-06-05 10:40 from mbyw - click to readI don't think so, you have read it carefully.

It says, N8 is NOKIA's next flagship device, this comes from Alberto Torres, Nokia EVP, MeeGo Computers at #openmobile.

J: Will MeeGo claim the high end for Nokia, because at the moment Symbian is the one thatclaiming the high end, Symbian (phone) is the one thatís regarded as the flagship, e.g. N97 is called the flagship even though N900 has more power. Will the flagship now when MeeGo phone is released, will the flagship title be given to the MeeGo phone

AT: The intent is to build the flagship product on MeeGo. But I mean of course in the mean time we have a lot of really good products coming out on Symbian. And certainly the N8 will be our flagship in the next few months. But I think itís very much clear that MeeGo has the potential of creating something thatís deeper than you find on a typical smartphone.

let me talk about ovi store

navigation app
ovi mpas the best, gramin is not there but exist for s1

social apps
skype, nimbuzz, msn live messenger, fring, facebook, myspace,
need google talk, yahoo messenger

games
nokia need to put much effort, qt looks promising
dumb people care so much about the number of available games in store

others
joikuspot, wish for oxford advanced learner english dictionary, sportstracker

systems and utility
xplore my fdavurite
threadsms for mini n97

nokia go up to the top

what are the great apps and games in apple store
tomtom, but you need to pay for every map data
and tons of god and bad games, that is wjhy nokia is far behind apple in term of number of good games

nokia, if you put good gpu in future n and e series phones or c and x phone , you can bring back the games developers

I hope Nokia will really make 'Nokia U'. Dual OS ( Symbian^4 and Meego), just 10 mm thick, 8mp Camera and 3x optical zoom ( I dont believe 3x optical zoom in just 10 mm thick device).
