I think Nokia just used an improved version of symbian^1 in the prototype to test it..

i also hate that....bgesides the orrid logos...like the Orange logo on the E71 etc etc .... possibly the worst is the "custom" software, icons, etc. I can't stand them. whenever i got the chance i changed the software with the intial and stuff like that. I mean...i guess that a preinstalled startup picture with the operator logo could be enough...but, damn, ruining the design and the interface....?!?!

and ditto to what i have told you about that e72 i had.

Nokia has not finished developing the OS for the N8...just see the latest article here on gsmarena about the N8..the live photo-shoot in front of NOKIA hq...reporters could not turn the phone on to get in ideea of the OS.

Sure...there are a few prototypes there in SAFE hands (thus where all the photos of teh N8 turned out) ... but they just have a mock-up OS just for testing the hardware compatibility, etc...just to juce up the phone a bit and start testing and improving the OS.. This is just basic stuff every company does.
It may just as well have a kind of "nokia 5800" software...or a previous models OS on it just to make it run for the moment. In any case a lot of things get done by "trial-and-error" .to see what can be improved, how, etc, etc.

So it's very hasty to post impresions of a pre-release model that , even if real , is way different (for sure) than the final version.


I'm a pretty big nokia fan...i guess that everytime i see a nokia for the first time i can tell a few things, where the Af light is, if it's LED, Xenon, screen res, materials, ports, where every button goes and what it does, and stuff like that...if i see the specs i can tell pretty much ow it will work, what the strenghts/weaknesses are...but the truth is that the OS makes all the diff, the final version. otherwise it's just an object.

For lack of divx xvid videos, then one can easily install a video player for it. And Dont compare it with other phones since the software is not fully complete..

> In reply to Bong @ 2010-05-15 11:20 from wHS5 - click to readDude.. I told repeatedly that my opinions are based on a very early unit so don't take me wrong. But omnia hd using custom firmwares produces video that are almost on par with vivaz which is quite brilliant. And seeing as the prototype N8 produce video close to that quality it may turn out better. But mind you N95 Nokia release sample video was too cool but in reality it wasn't so you may be disappointed. But never think of me a Nokia hater or something. I think my fair posts say that.

The N8 will be always take some time to get released,with All the U.K networks wanting there own software an Names put on the N8,thats whats always spoils mobiles,they get announced early Mobile Phones but then always get delayed because of the Networks like Orange,Vodafone an Tmobile an now "3" network wants some Logo an Software put on any mobile,if this did not happen the N8 would be released by now,which this would not happen,because then you have to pay to get it unlocked an spoils the apperance of Any Mobile

> In reply to Niraj @ 2010-05-15 10:32 from KFNZ - click to readI never said I had one (see my previous posts)...My bro just took me to his office to secretly show the device and I extracted every info on it I can in the short 3 hours I had this. But if you have doubts I will post videos of it in 1-2 weeks when I get to see a closer retail unit to my bros though I don't care if you think of me fake or not. I was just trying to help people and make their choice and prevent posting false info here. Aftar all this is gsmarena.

Nokia software engineers are so slow to complete the firmware for their phones. Nokia need to hire more software engineer to rush out the firmware for this phone

how many customers they lose in a day delay?

> In reply to Sunil @ 2010-05-15 09:26 from uNVK - click to readHahaha! N8 still's will have trouble with Pixon 12?! Wow. Now that's naivety. How can a phone which is slightly better than Satio come close to N8?? That's like comparing a digital compact camera to a DSLR. You can't possibly put them together. It is already proven years ago that bigger sensor can produce better still pictures. If not mistaken, Pixon 12 sensor is around 1/2.5. How can that come close to N8's 1/1.83. And mind you, I haven't even mentioned Carl Zeiss optics yet. To be blunt, I still hold doubt whether the Pixon 12 can outshine SE Satio. From what I have seen so far, Pixon 12 only grace against Satio is in low light shooting.

And regarding N8's video capturing. My gosh! How can you put Omnia HD on par with this beast?! Have you seen the sample video???? Any Tom, Dick and Harry would be able to justify which one can capture better HD videos. Omnia HD is already out of competition. It can't even come close to Vivaz HD videos. What more to say N8.

Multimedia wise, I can't comment much since Samsung have a track record of enabling their devices to play DivX/XviD videos out of the box. But we have yet to see what the N8 can do. So I wish to reserve further comments for later.


P/S Do get a hands on with the actual N8. No matter how close it comes to a retail unit, it still won't be as good.

2. I just said that coz omnia hd is king in multimedia all in one device...there is better devices yes but omnia hd is still named where all in one devices are concerened.
3. I don't think you read my post carefully. I said omnia hd 8MP images aren't even a match to N8's image which means N8 is lot better I just compared N8 with pixon12 and satio which is a fair deal.
