> In reply to omnia dude @ 2010-05-15 08:45 from 2FYi - click to readAgreed. Omnia HD is still king of phones and will remain 'cause N8 is a slightly different device. It focuses on imaging most and the still camera image quality I think will easily beat Satio but will have trouble with pixon12. But satio shooting speed is better than both N8 and pixon12 and whats more I think the N8 flash is a lil bit more powerful than satio. Omnia HD stills are no match. But N8 HD recording is on par with i8910(I checked) But multimedia wise N8 is yet to catch up with Omnia HD. Lets see what I see in the reatail unit in 1-2 weeks.

Nokia is number 1 mobile company in the world. samsung,htc,sony ericsson is garbage...the brand says it all and the majority speaks for NOKIA!

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2010-05-15 07:44 from tVsd - click to readI can confirm that N8 has no LED flash. There's no room for that. It just has a red LED under Xenon flash which is for AF assist. And Nokia thinks its more important, after all u gonna have a fabulous camera. And about the UI lag my bro told me that the unit I used was highly loaded with apps for testing perpose. The performance may come better in retail unit if you don't install toooo many apps.
And guys prior to my constant requests, my bro promised to show me a unit that's closer to the retail one with complete OS. Keep tuned. Hope I can help.

Hello, Ladies and Gentlemen,
I have never seen before such "naive" people.
If I see this same old c-r-a-p, not even able to play DivX, I have to think about a song of King Michael Jackson.
".... who's bad?... you know I'm really really bad....."
He wrote the song to have a "Duell" with Prince.
But as like Prince, NOKIA will never have a chance against the new Kingfamily: Samsung, HTC, Apple...
Sorry to speak out the truth!!

the spec list is not bad..But can poor old nokia get it together...i will check it out IF and when(possibly) released..but the omnia hd is going to be hard to pass....nokia have a habit of making a lot of pre release hype..followed by dissapointment,,then 7 or 8 firmware updates to fix the stuffups......i dont care what the specs say , its going to be another boring attempt........Omnia 'king of the fones'......nokias,,well they used to be ok

Why can't you fanboys face the simple facts??

SE is a total loss as a company. The X10's design is just plain boring, & is waaayy overpriced. It may have a larger display, but is hardly worth mentioning. Nokia is & will ALWAYS be the #1 mobile phone manufacturer.

When SE, Apple, or Samsung take Nokia's #1 spot, THEN, & only THEN can you disillusioned fanboys say that SE or Apple is better....until that happens, just shut the hell up....& talk about your plastic toys somewhere else.

> In reply to 5800xm_user @ 2010-05-15 06:28 from wYxA - click to readUR wrong here., HTC make Android and Windows based smartphones and both of them require heavy processor because of much eye canding transitions, heavy app use, live wallpapers and all such stuff.
Symbian doesn't require that much processor.
