Release Date coming in May?
I hope so :)
Guys, the N8 is the upgrade to N86, thus the N8 usage. The upgrade to N97 will be N9. Remember that the N9x series were "high-end", while the N8x series were photogenic "high-end". The N9 will probably the flagship people have been waiting for.
Great phone, Symbian ^3 looks promising! People, can you even read?!?! What's plastic? Anodised aluminium? Far too many imbeciles write comments here (some can't even write in proper English). Furthermore - has any of you TOUCHED the device? NO?? Drooling poor people, go slander somewhere else, please!
hriju, 08 May 2010wow....its really awesome....i m dreaming of having one......its multi touch with 256 ram,680... moreCorrection: its not "680MHz processor", its "680MHz ARM 11 processor". Its seriously much weaker than the 600MHz Arm Cortex A8 of N900.
Not impressive. I hope we soon see a serious Nokia capacitive AMOLED model, and by serious i mean Maemo/Meego. Symbian smartfones belong to the past for me, a month with N900 has shown me my way into the mobile future, mobile computers is the thing, not smartfones with "camera on steriods" and other flashy specs.
Niraj, 08 May 2010Can you please give us the link..Bro, actually i gotta a XML file (no doubt, a hacked one) through email from my friend whos a software engineer in Vancuwar, canada.
Oops! what's wrong with Nokia they still don't have a 1Gh processor and no micro USB port. Ofcourse, the camera is brilliant.
I knew something is wrong when people called this the 2010 Flagship of Nokia when I clearly saw a 16GB storage. Why on earth Nokia downgraded to a 16GB when they're current Flagship is a 32GB?
Just found out that this is just an upgrade to the Nokia N86 8MP which is an 8GB phone. Im glad this is not the Flagship.
I'll wait for the next Flagship. This is still a great phone as it uses the wide lens.
Good job Nokia. Now bring this to Canada so I will be happy
wow....its really awesome....i m dreaming of having one......its multi touch with 256 ram,680mhz processor,12mp camera with smile and face dtection.....amazing.....nokia rocks...
This phone is the best phone I've ever seen. No other phone could beat this one until the end of this year... yeah.. I'm sure...
can this price be true i cannot believe it.and is it slow in processing becoz it runs in a symbian os
[deleted post]Hey thanks for helping me out.You can buy this for your wife since i cant afford right now to buy it for my girlfriend!
Goldberg, 08 May 2010Good news. "Symbian ^4 Light" all set to be released in July end. It named light as ... moreto goldberg...
Sounds nice for n8 lovers like me.
But can i know where did you get that info?
How many percent i will going to be true?
S4L would be a better weapon to be equip to n8 to crash its competitors if this update shall be done.
i think this nokia is ******* AWESOME so if u hav nothing nice to say dont bother leaving any comments....xxxx
Good news. "Symbian ^4 Light" all set to be released in July end. It named light as it works at the speed of light. N8 is upgradable to "Symbian ^4 Light (S4L)". S4L works only in the handsets equipped with 3D hardware accelerator. As S4L have unique cube user interface. Means there are 6 homescreens which could be rotated in 3D. For other mobiles there will be S4.
According to the Chinese Web, one of the Nokia engineers revealed that, Symbian OS already aged. Most of the engineer teams are shifted and trained on development for Meamo OS .
Everyone's so crazy about metal bodied phones and it seems everyone hates plastics. But i personally prefer plastic to metal for my phone. Although anodised aluminium is durable, light and very colourful when dyed, i'd still take a good plastic one anyday. Metal esp steel bodied phones deform much easier than a good plastic would break. And when it gets all scratchy after some time, plastics are far cheaper than metals
