But remember, all those devices are flagship devices that must come with no less the best.

N8 is a significant product but was never the flagship model.

Where ever it might hurt (your ears listening to fanboys' rants) it wont hurt your wallet.

When I cited the P4 as an example, I was not making a direct correlation between desktop CPUs and mobile processors. I was merely (as I did state there) generalizing the cost behind using a very high clock speed CPU in any device be it desktops, portables or mobiles. When you stuff a big, power hungry processor, there are other considerations like the design of the (PC or mobile) to account for increased power requirement.
In the case of the N8, since the under-clocked speed of 680 Mhtz was deemed enough by the manufacturer to run all required task within the context of available power, there is no reason to resort to a 1Ghtz CPU just for the sake of it. That will ultimately only serve to add to the final cost of production.

I would welcome more technological discussions with you, that's what these forums are for right. I did to in the PC manufacturing industry before (perhaps that's why I'm so hung up on the hidden costs of CPU than the CPU itself :)) with Dell but I have since changed over to advertising.

iphone 4 will pose a tough competition for this.

it still built on old hardwares and is late too.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2010-06-08 01:16 from khSL - click to readwell hopefully the final firmware version of the phone or a sooner update would use the 780Mhz the ARM1176 processor has. for some dumb reason Nokia declocks the phone's processor upon release, like the 5800 @ only 300+mhz and after the v21 update they put it to the proper 434Mhz of the ARM1136.

Well I disagree with that., you want a camera then buy Panasonic DMC-FX70 or Samsung NX5 or Sony Alpha 290 DSLR., not so good OS of this phone., which it has high OS and RAM then this will be a real monster phone like Samsung Galaxy S

> In reply to BRAND NAME @ 2010-06-08 01:10 from IaH1 - click to readThe reason it is famous are because it has the best camera compared to all HTC phone.

It also is the first device to run on Symbian^3.

The over all build is using great material that u cannot find on any of HTC phone.

The look (design) also not bad :)

Yea.. partly is because it is from Nokia.
Because Nokia provide the best customer support after sales. :)

> In reply to mothman @ 2010-06-08 01:01 from uNVC - click to readi understand that the os makes a huge difference. a general analogy would be putting a great race driver in a mediocre car and competing against the top... i like this phone quite much. The least i want to see is a lagging sluggish device that would have had a huge potential. Just think nokia should not afford such position when this is supposed to be kind of a come back. and you know that's what the end consumer would judge against. By end of august competitors will be announcing 1.2GHZ processors with 1G RAM. go compete against that... my two cents for what they are worth. nice talk tho..

specs on site must be wrong! There's no way that this pone has ARM 11 compatible processor!
It must have TI's OMAP 3000 series based on Cortex-A8 core!!

The pone is beautiful, it would be grate to have this kind of Android device!

> In reply to mothman @ 2010-06-08 00:39 from uNVC - click to readim reading quite carefully. still no indication how 256 RAM would suffice in real life. There is a real life performance and marketing description of a product. Why would every other leading OS phone go up for 512? Plus its like a dual core vs pentium... i guess they both will run your computer.... the question is how well. Android is a pretty capable linux based os and again they go for 512..

What is Amoled screen/display ?

in GENERAL
AMOLED display is a new and
advanced display which is being
used by companies like Samsung, LG,
etc. in their mobile phones,
notebook, and LCD TV displays.
AMOLED means (Active-matrix
organic light-emitting diode) display
consists of OLED pixels that have
been deposited or integrated onto a
thin film transistor (TFT). Amoled
screens are ultra thin, ultra bright
and doesn’t require a backlight to
work.
An amoled display consumes less
power and offers a high refresh rate
with superior image quality. They
are flexible and unbreakable in
nature.
