Have you ever opened your n82?, well i actually fix nokias at my shop. I see what you have been trying to do is convince me that 3d hardware is making video capturing better,and as i said before you are wrong.
first of all - no offence- but you are not proffesional, the nokia n82 doesnt use the omap 2420 for camera processing as omap 2420 doesnt support 5 megapixel cameras. Instead they added the goldeneye omap DM290 for the camera processing, it can even support up to 7 megapixel cameras.
The stronger the cameras ( in megapixels) the better processor is much more needed.
Look mr fab i dont want waste my time posting and explaining deep technical stuff. So, heres a list of coprocessors used with highend nokia phones
OMAP-DM290 - n82,n95
OMAP-DM299 - n78
OMAP-DM500 - n79,5800,5530,n97
OMAP-DM510 -n86 8mp
In brief the main processor doesnt involve in camera processing in case of strong cameras. and as you see, as the series goes the processors gain more features
just for e.g dual core - core 2 duo - i7.
some links for original texas instrument videos
Now we are talking about the main processor we have single arm and dual core. I know this will take time to explain so..., I personally prefer single arm goes for n78-n79-n81-n86, why? ok the maximum clock speed of these are 369 mhz(excluding n86 434 mhz), these processors at idle are much faster than dual core 332, which is important to me, while at running too many apps( i mean 5-10 apps) dual core well perform better(not like there is no probability for crashing!). who runs 5-10 apps at the same time? by the way n86 has 434mhz which will be totally better than old dual core processors.
I can do a lots of talking and blow up alots of rumors
but finally i need u to know 2 things:
-Nokia doesnt have clowns designing phones at their company, screwing up their new phones and taking advantages away!
- I gotta go!

Here's the link:
Nokia_Tec , 19 Nov 2009Dear Fab; I am not a nokia user my friend, I am a technician, and telling the 3d graphics acce... moreAs I've said, it has been talked about many times in the forums as well as on a lot of blogs dedicated to Nokia and Symbian that there is a hardware accelerator responsible for encoding VGA videos at 30fps on phones which run on the OMAP2420 platform. OMAP2420 is a complex processor. Not only it has 2 seperate processors for applications and the network, it also has a 3D accelerator and image/video accelerators. Why don't you check out TI OMAP's official website? You can Google it.
Dear Fab; I am not a nokia user my friend, I am a technician, and telling the 3d graphics acceleration was stopped by nokia for following reasons:
-When nokia phones was old 3d graphics did support their performance and only at rendered application (JAVA). shooting video has nothing to do with 3D chip. Still u dont belieive me, the n86 has been proven one of the best video shooters and it doesn`t have a 3d chip.
-Ngage 2.0 is software rendered application that doesn`t need a 3d chip or even use a one. If nokia had built ngage on hardware rendered bases it would have caused compatibilty issues.
-The 3d chip and other superior secret components have been proven a heavy battery consumer, my friend were are talking about a phone here not a pc. On a pc we have unlimited power supply thus we buy heavy components 1gb video ram, that performs well and indeed it doesnt help a computer capture videos at better qualtiy.
- The new software that is produced by nokia is much more capable of runing applications than old ones. When nokia releases the open source platform everybody will start understanding that nokia has high tech workers doing the best that you cant see.
Finally concluding this, i am not against nokia providing them with 3d chip, i mean look at apple games, nokia indeed needs to start supporting nokias with strong 3d cards, and equip the handsets with powerfull batteries though.
By the way nokia phones were not made to compete but rather made to satisfy everyones needs at the right price.

Xenon flash? Well, yes, it helps 10 ... moreN79 is a great phone, but no match for N82 even though N82 is much older. For me N79 with it's replaceable covers is strictly a girlie phone. While N82 on the other hand is a true multimedia N-series monster. Would not trade it even for Satio or Omnia HD, so it's understandable that N79 is out of the quation. And yes, i use xenon very often since i take pics on parties.
If u have doubts about the performance try running N-Series gallery or Photo Broswer and u will see how N79 cannot handle quick previews, while N82 has no problem at all. So it's much speedier! Regards!
Thanks Tef5! I just downloaded d latest n-gage software at d n-gage mobile site on my n82 free of registration and charge. D old foolish n-gage application has gone and been totally replaced by d new one and it works pretty well. Thank u very much Tef5, u just made my day!
The front panel of my silver N82 had developed mny scratches. Has anyone got the front panel changed. If yes, can it be changed to black colour so that it does not show scratches as prominently. Also where can I get the panel freom in Delhi and at what cost.

The E90 has a 3.2MP camera lens that doesn't bear a Carl Zeiss label but it beats the 5800's Carl Zeiss camera in image quality hands down. Same holds true for their videos. Thanks to the 3D accelerator.
It has been talked about many times in the forums that it is the hardware accelerator on N93 at the time that made it capable of recording videos in VGA@30fps. But today, VGA@30fps video recording can also be done through software rendering evident on camera phones with poor lens and sensor and hardware platform just like 5800. OMAP2420, which is N82's processor , is capable of VGA@30fps, while the new OMAP3430 Is capable of HD video recording just like OMNIA HD.
Subho, 18 Nov 2009Dude the 3d accelerator helps in smooth video playback.it has nothing to do with video quality... more3D accelerator is used in video encoding and decoding as well. The quality of videos recorded by N93/i, N82, N95/8GB and E90 can prove that. Before, only phones with 3D accelerator like N93/N95 can record videos in VGA@30fps because of the 3D hardware accelerator. But now, phones which don't have this hardware accelerator can also record VGA videos @30fps through software rendering but with noticeably worse quality just like N79, N85 and 5800.

Very few Nokia phones have a 3D hardware accelerator. In fact, there's only 6 of them, and they are all flagship devices - N93, N93i, N95, N95 8GB, E90, with N82 being the only non-flagship device among the group. Most people think that the 3D accelerator is used only in gaming. But in reality, you are using it too often than you realize. When you are recording a video, watching a video, and taking a picture as well, the 3D accelerator gets these jobs done. Would you believe that the 4-year old N93 records video with higher quality and details than the new N97? There are a lot of H263 MPEG-4 videos that will play with sound but no video on N97, or won't play at all, while most of these videos play smoothly on N82 without problems. That is the job of the hardware accelerator.

N82's processor is a complex one. It has an ARM11 application processor, a DSP network processor, PowerVR MBX 3D hardware accelerator used in image/video encoding/decoding. Just compare the videos recorded by N82 and N95 which have a 3D accelerator, and the videos recorded by N79 and 5800 which don't have a hardware accelerator, and the disparity in the quality of their videos is pretty obvious. N82 is a workhorse because of its high performance processor, large amount of free RAM and phone memory and excellent camera performance.
How can i install downloaded Ngage games on dis Fone? Pls help me out!
I've just got the N82. It's really a great phone. Very comfortable in hand and to use. Pictures may not be as good as a real camera, but it's good enough for me. And for those who say that xenon flash will come in use ~10 times a year, than speak for yourself. There are plenty of people for who the XENON flash will come in use many more times than that.
And personaly I prefer a XENON flash instead of LED, because LED is just to weak for now. The best alternative solution would be a xenon+led. I think nokia and other phone manufacturers should think about it.
