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.

other way-carry nokia 1100+digicam+simple mp3 player+ipod touch+compass+gps reciever+wifi compatible internet tablet+fm radio.

which way is better?obviously first one.

phone cant REPLACE other dedicated devices(at the stance) but it can serve as all in one device and provide easier way of enjoying all the doesnt mean that if you buy n8,you dont need to buy means u wont miss to click important event in absence of your digicam..

you think lil bit more than an ordinary person,and i guess thats your problem.if everyone thinks as you do,how do omnia h,satio,pixon,vivaz exist?so dear friend we are not fool,we think positive and enjoy the surrounding unlike you do.take a chill pill. :)

> In reply to Mihai @ 2010-05-15 22:24 from 3cjF - click to readFirst thing get your facts right.
- Most Mobile cameras Sensor – 1/1.6”
- Most Compact digital cameras Sensor – 1/2.3”
- N8 Sensor – 1/1.83”

Conclusion – It has largest sensor ever seen in Mobile cameras.

- 1080p is Full HD. Frame rates can be 23.976, 24, 25, 29.97 and 30 frames per second.
- 720p is the shorthand name for a category of HDTV video modes.
- N8 captures 720p at 25fps.

Conclusion – We know what to expect and what not from Mobile devices. And quality can never match quality of a dedicated camcorder. But this is the best mobile device. You want carry your 200 to 500 gm camcorder in a pocket. Will you?

- SE Satio – 12 MP, 72dpi
- Panasonic Lumix G1 – Bridge Interchangeable lens camera, 490 Pounds, 180dpi
- Nokia N8 – 300dpi

Conclusion – Better than dedicated camera. Cost less than dedicated camera.

- You can’t buy N8 and think of replacing SLR.
- You can’t buy N8 and think of replacing camcorder.

But you can have a mobile device that can offer you image quality and video quality to be captured at best whenever you want as long as it’s allowed.
