I hope it will play France 24 live news app,,magnifying glass in picture viewer mode,,blue google icon with included apps,,active notes,,y-browser..

Its due 3rd quarter to answer person below,,i.e. july ,august ,september..Some say it will be earlier but we never know do we its just announced and thats it..The N8 along with samsung beam and wave are on my hotlist also x10 and n900 subject to price drops..To be honest and many will disagree but i dont like Android very much i think i am a nokia/symbian fanboy at heart..

I just hope that the Symbian software from previous models like Internet Radio, eBuddy & Windows Live Messenger will be available for the N8!

dual core cpu and dual cpu both are different things...

I just hope for the best, I hope you know what you're doing this time nokia, I'm eagerly waiting for this phone to be released

> In reply to KID @ 2010-05-20 19:41 from wrk0 - click to readI think N8 surely have multiple core Arm 11 because even hardware requirement of symbian^3 tells that it is made for run in multiple core processer..! So its a good news because s^4 will also run on multicore processor.. I'm sure you know what I mean..!

If i were Nokia i'd release two similar phones at the end of the year , the first would be a cut down lower specs than N8 like 8 mp cam , 4\8gb int. memory .. the second would be more high end specs than the N8 like super AMOLED high res. display 480x800 minimum , 384mb ram , 1gh processor , 1500 mA batt. , 32gb int. memory ... that way i'd dominate the market beginning with low mid-range up to high-end users ... CAN U HEAR ME NOKIA !!!

> In reply to nokia fan @ 2010-05-20 15:38 from tVud - click to readI'm sorry, but did you imply that N97 is using S^3 as well? Cause N97 is still using S60v5 Symbian, aka S^1.

And how could you be sure that S^3 will be suck? While it is not yet released?? I agree that S^1 used in N97 is not as good as other OS, that's why Nokia team developed another OS designed specifically for their touchscreen device, which is S^3.

And so you know, S^3 is now an open source OS, just like android and maemo5, and not just that, S^3 seems to be making a lot of change under the hood, so that it'll be a more efficient.

And for those who ask why nokia not using 1Ghz proc, well, maybe it's because ARM 11 680Mhz could already do the trick!! Besides, who knows if maybe nokia will boost the clock speed to 720 or even 800Mhz, just like they did with 5800 in the upcoming firmware update? And I we dont know what's the type of AMR 11 used in N8 right? cause there's 4 type of core in ARM 11 family, and nokia 5800 - N97 using the cheapest from those 4, and there's also a variant of ARM 11 which support multiple core (2-4 core), so you guys cant judge this phone yet until you really experienced it right??

so stop whining about the proc, if you dont like it then dont buy it
