This is a very good phone, but it could have done better. Why did they use a non user removable 1200mAh battery if Korean manufacturers can offer 1500mAh removable batteries? The 720p video could have been at 30fps, cmon! 5 megapixel cameras running Android are already well capable of this! Also, why did they use a 680MHz processor in a high end device when processors capable of over twice this speed are available? Nokia designers seem to favor form over function because they have sacrificed much just for the sake of aesthetics. I'm sure buyers would understand having a bigger and/or heavier N8 with much better capabilities. With these problems addressed along with a higher resolution screen would make the N8 perfect.
[deleted post]Avialable in stores at first of september, released at the end of augest
Better than n900 because it is a very complete phone, full support of nokia ovi support, many hardware features
when meego phone show up, both symbian and meego phone have their own unique characteristics
meego has better brain than symbian, it is truth
symbian is suitable for phone os, original
Launch the sexy piece in INDIA as soon as possible, waiting very despearately to use the model ........
3M, 12 Jun 2010Cortex-A8 is almost twice as fast as Arm11.Arm11@680 is something like 400mhz Cortex-a8.On the... moreThe ARM 1176 of the Nokia N8 is a de-clocked version of the real thing which originally has 720Mhz.
And since Symbian^3 doesn't rely much on its processor since it has a GPU it'll be just as fast as a Cortex A8.
Just a quick question, does anyone know whether you are able to turn off the "shutter sound" when you take photos (i.e. the sound that comes out of the speakers) and/or the recording sound when you begin to record a video like you can with the Innov8/i8510?
Another Nokia N 'never touch' series phone that will seem brill for a week then start freezing, turning off, running slow, failing to send texts, have faulty buttons and camera. If your going to get one be prepared to Sofftware flash every week and send it off to Nokia for warranty repair every 6-8 weeks.
Good luck to you all!
Nokia N Series = Never Touch!
Nokia should stick to what they do best.. Simply designed durable phones with long battery life!
have you all contributed to n8?
Why not participate in a competition to win this phone at n8makemyapp.com
thats nice multitasking ..fast !!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWGHMNUFNl4
Can you think this way
if iphone4 sell well, nokia may drop the price of n8 to euro 333:)
Another Embarassment at Nokia,Apple announce the iPhone 4 an its available in 2 weeks,Why do Nokia always make the wrong decision an announce there mobiles to early, an people get annoyed waiting for it to be released an then buy a alternative phone instead,this trend as been going on for ages at Nokia an hope it gets changed after the big shake up at Nokia,Like to see how the sales of the N8 will suffer with the new iPhone 4 being released 2 months before the N8,Please Grow UP Nokia an stop this Stupid Trend
Cortex-A8 is almost twice as fast as Arm11.Arm11@680 is something like 400mhz Cortex-a8.On the other hand i believe Symbian@400mhz A8 is faster (if it can be somehow compared)to android@550mhz(milestone). 1Ghz A8 is much much faster than Arm11@680 on any OS, I suppose.
When I find specification in Europe.nokia.com. Result is face detection only, no smile detect. Please correct it.
