It had a 1.3 mega pixel snapper which at the time i thought was magical. After it, i got the nokia n95 which hat a 5mp. It seemed like the end of the road for mobile camera technology. I got the 5800 and sold it almost immediately because i wasn't satisfied with its camera plus all the bugs and. . . Now i'm using a n95 8gb which is to arguably one of the best snappers in the 5mp range.
5mp cameras are good - that is when you wanna view the pics on your phone but when you wanna take landscape shots and view on a pc, the lack of detail is irritating. As far as i'm concerned, the better the pixel count the better. No number of pixels is excessive. If you don't like 12mp shots them reduce it in the camera settings.

Neither do I nor anyone else know as well. Not until the phone comes out would we be able to truly put the battery life to test. But based on things like AMOLED display, a frugal OS and CPU, it might just pull it off. We hope for the best.
By the way mate, I have an N95 that is a great phone and a great snapper but I still at times carry around a low end Nokia XpressRadio when I face some serious time away from a charger. Although this little devil takes comparable shots to a dedicated snapper, it would be unwise to think any smartphone (or phone) designed within its constraints and limitation would ever replace a dedicated camera with its much larger battery pack on a long vacation.
I dont know about others, but I feel using a 12MP camera to capture pics while away might be an overkill on the battery and processor. If I am a tourist somewhere, I run the risk of running out of battery soon if I go on a clicking spree with this phone. This phone is purely for those who are camera specs crazy and think 5MP does not produce even decent quality pics.
Nowadays phone design. Ui design and app store are the most important
The phone design and controls look outdated and ugly. Even the display shown in pictures reminds me of 2004 Windows Mobile OS. Overall, looks like a bunch of nerds who have assembled a phone to boast a few features. Girls would never be impressed with a contraption like this.. they will mistake me to a lifeless nerd if I am spotted with one.
Android-based HTC/Moto or an iPhone 4 for me please. Thanks.
Is it possible to fax on this phone?
Is the screen resolution enough?
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2010and... what is your argument?
N8 is better?
n8 is the best phone for only $500. ofcourse you'll get better phone with more money, but is it worth-it?
money-wise: 2 samsung i9000 = 3 nokia n8
Best set of features and appealing design! Thats what I have to say. When its hitting the Indian market, a tentative date?

Sadly no keyboard but i guess i can deal with it. And yes CPU speed will be definitely enough for Symbian 3.
