Nokia N8 is the king . It will rule the mobile world . Iphone users can imagine 12mp camera till 2020. Free maps -i think they ll have to wait till 2050. full flash support -maybe in next life .
Aaah..when are Nokia going to learn to stop beating the dead dog that is the symbian OS? Poor guy in the video felt so unsure about the touch screen that he was making long pokes at the device and not touches.The phone seems slow to respond and the interface too looks like 5 years passé.Poor Nokia have really fallen behind of Apple and Android so much...there used to be a time when they used to set the benchmark for smartphone ....and I used to wait like crazy for their new phones....what has changed since 2007 ...its like they have stopped working for two years and are now finding themselves behind..Very sad...as they used to be my fav mobile manufacturer but I now won't take most of their phones for free...
Apple IPhone 4 just lost a sale.
Nokia N8 seems to be amazing.
I would def get it.
I am a Nokia fan & I guess would always be one.
Keep up the good work Nokia.
They still have that stupd battery and signal strength on the top part of the ui that takes up too much fkng space. And when he scrolls its like the screen is divided into two parts and the other side is being left out. like, wth? And I seriously doubt there would be qwerty in portrait mode. This ui looks great... 5 years ago! It doesn't even look like a 'modern' touchphone. I do admit that the N8 has really good hardware but seriously Symbian?? Smbian sux!
I love n8 siply
Wanna have it soon
can anybody tell me about the release date of n8??????
my name is The Don ;, 29 May 2010I have nokia. but on that presentation is the major fault. This fault make me seriously doubt ... moreWhat is wrong with the presenter?
Are u looking at the phone or what?
It amazes me how Android and Iphone fans try and bash Nokia when it's nokia who started all this stuff you fans want so much from mms, podcasting, flash lite to full flash in the browser and multitasking and etc... Last time I check Nokia is still the world leader in the smartphone market. Nokia is always creating more creative ways to connect people with a complete open Market and Android is really not as open as these reporters make them to be. Now at least here the N900 is the first device to make video calls from device to device and computers so top that Android or Iphone fans. I mean here in the US. Maemo first with full flash in the browser and google chrome for a mobile device as well
Not bad at all. Better than my expectation on Symbian.
I will get it. Just hope that the kinetic scrolling work in their main menu too.
Take your time releasing this bad boy Nokia.
Given recent media reports, I have some concern concern for the folks in the factories.
Seems our quest for better faster has some consequences.
Nick, 29 May 2010Used to be a Nokia fan boy, but after being screwed over by Nokia so many times I'm never buyi... more"HTC fast with firmware updaes... " ???????? Ha,ha,ha,ha... good one dude, hahahahhaha..... Hero owners out there, what do u think.... LOL
Looks good. Screen looks responsive.Capacitative I guess. But I dont understand why he is exploring it in landscape mode. People use landscape mode only in messaging and emails. Normally everyone uses potrait mode. Lets hope phone works equally good in potrait also.
The virtual keyboard dooes not change, look like old nokia touch phone
what are the things the symbian guys do at their work? Sit around?
No doubt is a nice device but only on the hardware. Do note that in the recent yrs, Nokia symbian have fallen drastically behind OS like OSX, Andriod and maybe even bb OS. In order for Nokia N8 and future Nokia device to gain back its original market share, they have to come out with better stuff for their operating system.
DanT, 28 May 2010It seems you forgot about some other N8 advantages over Samsung i9000S like HDMI, FM Transmitt... moreIf you have ever tested Android, you knew that Symbian cannot match android at all, either now or future. Or should I say forever?
What are the average age for the engineers at nokia?
What are the average age for apple engineers?
Can gsmarena find out?
