Still pretty close to the top, just not the top. Motorolla flagship(the droid) is also a 600 mhz processor. I currently own a nokia n900 but will be selling it for a dell lightening when it comes out later this year. N900 is good, but i got tired of the form very fast(bulky). I am a nokia fan but not a fanboy. Frankly this phone dissapoints me.
NOKIA: STEP UP UR EFFIN GAME OR YOU WILL BE LEFT BEHIND. SPEED UP THE DEVELOPMENT OF MEEGO AND PUT SOME FIRSTRATE HARDWARE IN SYMBIAN ^3 DEVICES.
Nokia needs to seriously update Symbian. It is clumsy, ugly and slow - three things which you definitely don't want in todays current mobile market with the likes of Apple, Android and even Windows producing OS's which run far better and look superior.
If even Windows are producing a platform which makes yours look clumsy and ugly, that really is saying something...
I am done with Nokia until they switch to a platform that is seamless and pretty or drastically update Symbian so that it resembles something of the 21st Century because right now, they are still stuck in 1999...

Same old design, but some people like them, because they're (relatively) cheap.
But then in terms of innovation / top of the class? GM cars are probably the last in almost any list.
Oh, wait, is that Symbian^3 ?!?!? I thought it was S60 on steroids! It's more like S60 6th edition!
LOL, Nokia is being a joke. Indeed they are one mistake away from going down!
[deleted post]Exactly what they thought about the N97 look what happened there. Ended up coming out and publicly admitting failure. Under powered and a luck of Ram is what hampered the N97, otherwise a beautifully crafted phone. Luckily for me I was able to get shot of it. Probably come back to symbian when ^4 starts to ship.
nice camera and so but cpu and os are not something to drool over, but remember guys Nokia is focusing on the meego devices, symbian devices are nokia's secondary class phones so don't expect something great
680mhz?! Wow nokia just sealed the deal for me not getting one. Cumon nokia when are you guys going to release your next n95 specs ground breaker it has been years.....
One of the first people to get their hands on an N8 prototype came out said he was giving up on Nokia citing the luck of power in there devises. The fact that they have decided to delay the release a proof of that.

Symbian ^ 3 launch has been delayed to the Q3 of the year because of problems Quote "The delay is down to quality as Nokia wants to deliver the best available product before releasing to the public" end quote Reuters
Now look here Nokia! 256MB RAM and a 680MHZ cpu by today's standards is a mid range phone not a flagship phone. I hope this is a hoax by some apple or HTC employee otherwise.....

My upgrade is This June and I certainly wont be getting a Nokia that's for sure (I'm a Nokia fanboy) but will Get an I-phone, Internet, Music, Films, GAMES.
I will still get a N958Gb though and that would be the only nokia handset i would get now.
[deleted post]actually samsung announced they will move away from WM and SYMBIAN with Symbian being the first to go and eventually Samsung will only use Android and BADA (samsung os)
Well guys, you nokia haters..., you most have burn your finger very bad with droids, apples and bananas..., you lost money and your hair.., and you seem to be bored with your devices, so you expected from nokia too, to go after you..., but not..., and don't ever expect that, nokia will ever make apple or droid phone..., because it will not never!!! lol.
Now new symbian phone's is on it's way, so samsung have announced they will make super symbian phone too...., i see droids, apples and bananas is dying..., to bad for you guys..., i see in the future most of you, you will have to come back for symbian again, for specs and MHz's&MP's, like chickens after mice... lol
guys,will it hv video light?
ah wait!!i think i saw this phone before(on shelves)
every time a new handset(officially or not)announce by Nokia it's like i saw it before,because ALL Nokia phones looks 80% or even 90% like other(even early cheap and low ends)so no surprise that Nokia will lost even more ground every single day...
simply u can buy N95 and that's all because all others are N95+more memory/Free navigation apps or improved camera etc.
the real problem is with old-feel OS that needs a real reinvent,until that day don't expect a real innovate from Nokia however to date majority of Nokia's innovations comes from other companies,then Nokia put it to it's handset's so the market share will aid it and since Nokia is leader in market share(yet)and it's handsets are available in almost all regions many people around globe thinks "HEY NOKIA INVENTED ANOTHER BRAND NEW FEATURE".
This will be the best smartphone ever in the market. Eldar himself is a big fan of Nokia and he is just little upset that Nokia didn't meet HIS expectations.
[deleted post]You didn't notice that their are 3 home screens that and they are all widget based
Bigger screen size as standand
So now nokia is making universal units
Symbian^3 might looks the same but their are alot of improvents and as well it's not out yet so don't be so quick to judge
Cause the iphone has been out for almost 4 year and i really don't se and evolution until now
Multitasking,copy and paste,wallpapers,zoom in camera,mms,grouping apps......but it still looks like a tieled mug warmer
And it still looks the same
C'mon Nokia, it's year 2010 , you are still sleeping? I guess you'll make phones for toddlers soon...
The first screenshots of symbian ^3 showed a back button at the top of every screen and UI looked much sleeker than this. Why oh why have a options and an exit key taking up space at bottom of most screens. Needs to be slicker! I think now that phones have shifted from hardware to software, and microsoft, google and apple, predominately software companies, nokia i thnk it going down in the smartphne arena. I used to be a big nokia fan n95 and n82 but times have changed and the OS still looks the same!! grrrrr
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2010not even a snapdragon for god sakes symbiam has failed why dont the stubborn dicks at nokia go... moreCause snapdragon can't be used with symbian and the architect that symbian user is much better for ARM processors and the ARM cpu is easy to program
Why do you think intel is working on MeeGo
Cause it's a dfferent OS and can work on multiple CPUs since it's linux it just needs the X86 structure
