Many regard this phone as the second incarnation of the popular 5800 (And the voting results show this). Therefore Nokia will probably sell this at a very competitive price too, just like the 5800.

All previous Symbian apps should work, and better too because of the graphic processor. Therefore, DIVX can be run using Smart Movie, WMV using the WMV (RUN) Player just like all previous Nokia's.

Perhaps Core-player will work on this too, thanks to the Hardware acceleration.

In fact, it does not run the usual Symbian OS. This new on may look similar but has one big improvement along with many small one. The old Symbian was quite good but lacked speed and this new OS has been designed to fix just that.

Bugs on Nokia's are quickly fixed by firmware updates so you need it worry about them.

i dont like this phone because OLD arm 11 cpu and regular 256 mb of ram also OLD Nokia UI and symbian OS that is full of bugs
but camera&video&HDMI port of this phone is really impressive
if it had snapdragon cpu and at least 384 mb of tam and android OS and better UI then it would be a perfect phone

Wow, "new" Symbian looks exactly the same as the sh***y old one! Contemporary Nokia = Fail.

i think the success of this model will depend on user friendliness which already one big issue with N97 as the keyboard is either hard to work with or hard to use (no need talk about the lousy camera performance)...

tis one r without any physical keyboard, hopefully is working or else, u just end up with another "digital camera" or something then not sure about that again.

Effective focal length, 28mm – as flaunted in the marketing materials.

So let’s divide the effective focal length over the quoted one and we get something along
5.185. Then it’s easy to look up that number inWikipedia’s Image sensor format article.
So, it turns out that the Nokia N8 camera sensor stretches over roughly 1/1.9, which is an impressive number on its own.

Even if Nokia N8 was a dedicated digital camera, its sensor would still be considered large.

Nokia camera guru Damian Dinning makes it clear that the image sensor of the N8 measures exactly 1/1.83.

- Sony Ericsson Satio – 1/2.5 - 24.7mm2
- Samsung Pixon12 – 1/2.5 - 24.7mm2
- Nokia N86 8MP – 1/2.5 - 24.7mm2
- Sony Ericsson Vivaz – 1/3.2 - 15.5mm2
- Nokia N8 – 1/1.83” - 38.2mm2

So we have photos which can cover more area without cropping. You see, there are no clear winners previously but N8 will capture wind angle photo with greater resolution as suggested by dpi.

Scorpions - saying it's a largest sensor i suppose you know its frame size? So what is frame size of N8 sensor? And who was previous title holder?
