> In reply to Lol @ 2010-06-07 15:30 from KFPJ - click to readyea its definately clocked down... the nokia n900 can be over clocked to 1ghz but is restricted at 600mhz only to save battery. people have successfully overclocked it to 850 mhz and have no problem with it. in the same way, nokia has done that with this phone for increased efficiency. this phone will not be slow wat so ever. any lag will be due to bugs in symbian (if there's any) (which will be fixed with updates), not due to the processor.

> In reply to Sk @ 2010-06-07 14:47 from utii - click to readSk, I understand your apprehension about the possibility the N8 coming short in terms of power under the hood. Let me help you allay some of your fears and possible misconception.

1. The the most important fact here is that the N97 used Symbian^1 which was basically the old Series 60 OS running with a touch UI layer. I don't think I have to explain what a bad idea that turned out to be. N8 on the other hand runs a completely reworked OS with an UI that is designed for not only for touch screens but also hard keys. This new UI introduces single touch interface and pinch zoom that was lacking in the previous version.

2. The CPU in N97 was a disappointing ARM 11 434 MHz processor. In comparison, the N8 uses an ARM 11 680 MHz processor. This incidentally is the fastest CPU Nokia has ever stuffed into any of their phones. I point to your statement that "Nokia is still sticking with 600Mhz" which is not true.

3. Not only has the N97 had a slower CPU, it also lacked a GPU. As a matter of act the Symbian^1 would not even have taken advantage on a GPU even if there was one. Symbian^3 on the other hand was designed to optimize the usage of a GPU whereby its UI runs on this allowing for very smooth operation. And importantly, it runs a powerful Broadcom GPU.

I hope I do justice in explaining what an amazing user experience the N8 promises with the these upgrades even with a 'slower' but no less adequate CPU.

Moto has stepped up their game insanely, but still NOKIA FOREVER.

> In reply to kevinaux @ 2010-06-07 12:14 from RNy3 - click to readIt is just a thought that it would have been better if N8 came up with the latest processors available.....If N8 was designed to be 1Ghz phone then definitely the battery would be designed to support the 1Ghz Processor in the initial stage itself before the phone was actually developed...there is no need to change the Phone's design or increase/decrease the size of the phone....I find only the processor to be the most lacking feature of N8, like that of N97 where it made us struggle due to its combination of irritating UI and the Dumb processor......

Nokia N8 will be a tremendous hit. The 12 MP Camera will be a real sensation and the HD quality video recording will be a real hit...
