I need proof that the wave can render 99mil triangels/sec. I cant find it on gl benchmark. Can you show me proof?
480x800 DOES NOT PRODUCE A 16:9 ratio! It produces a 16:10 ratio instead. Dont twist and turn the facts pls
The n8 can record at 30fps by using a simple mod. And it will aslo feature it in the upcoming software update.
Dlna is software, not hardware. It can also be implemented into the n8 through software update.
The n8 can utilize virtual ram. So the REAL total amount of ram could be higher than 512mb.

Hummingbird 1GHz Processor
GPU of 99 million triangles
DNSE - Digital Natural Sound Engine
MDNIe - used in all Samsung Televisions
Wolfson Dedicated Music Chip
720p video recording at 30 Frames
512 mb Ram
I'm sure the N8 has advantages over the Wave but all phones have there good & bad points, the Wave in my point of view has more good ones than bad and having another OS on the market can only be good for competition and for the consumer.
Manas@Wave, 21 Dec 2010Hi Makssen,
I agree symbian has more applications in its store as its more than 8+ year old... moreUnless this new SDK works miracles, there's no way developers would pick this platform over the 3 you just listed. Hell, not even over the WP7's SDK for that matter.
The age of an operating system doesn't mean much when you have good tools to develop with. Infinity Blade on iOS, XBL on WP7, Angry Birds on Android/Symbian. All good games made with good development tools. Clients for videocalling. Bada has yet to even add this. So I'm patiently waiting to see this new SDK.
Manas@Wave, 21 Dec 2010Hi Makssen,
I agree symbian has more applications in its store as its more than 8+ year old... moresymbian is about 9 years old. But there are a lot of branches in symbian os (s60v1, s60v2, s60v3, s60v5 aka symbian^1, symbian^2 (used by doco moto) ). Symbian^3 being the latest in the family and it is only 2 months old, but already has a great selection of apps. If you say ovi store sucks i recomend that you visit it again. There are a number of great new apps just waiting to be downloaded. Ovi maps sucks? Hahaha! U make me laugh. I bet that you have nvr used ovi maps be4 (which apparently helped the n8 2 win the best satnav phone award)!
In case you havent noticed, the nhd resolution (360x640) produces a 16:9 ratio and this is crucial for the n8 since it is considered as a multimedia phone. And there is no limitation to the symbian os resolution, take the e90 internal display for example (i 4got the resolution)
And wats up with your continuous bashing towards nokia and the n8? Insecurity perhaps? :)
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2010There are 6 BADA phones and they can't even sell 1 million each, mega fail.For your information that Samsung Wave S8500 only has sold more than 1 Millions of Units in the first 3 months of its launch.
Anonymous your awareness is really outdated...!!!

I agree symbian has more applications in its store as its more than 8+ year old OS though BADA is merely 7 months old. You can't expect from an infact like BADA to grow as faster but one thing is sure it will grow & run...but what about an old outdated OS like symbian it wont run for a long...!!! :)
Every OS has some pros & cons & some limitations...You will see that application developers will now onwards give equal importance to BADA with IOS & Android & Symbian will be the past in coming future!!!
Manas@Wave, 21 Dec 2010Hi Phary,
You should be proud of N8 afterall you invested twice the money on a mobile which... moreI don't have a problem with Bada, but I think it's pretty funny how you say such a thing. The hardware of the N8 alone already has the Wave beat. Bada doesn't support a lot of things in the operating system that others have, but they are evolving so that makes sense.
That's all my opinion anyway. Bada is still a good platform, no one is knocking that.
This looks promising. The only thing I look for a smartphone is its multitasking abilities, the other features may be just a consolation imho. Symbian and Bada delivers the best multitasking among other OSes out there in the wild.
Phary, 21 Dec 2010I think that, Bada is so good . But nokia n8 still a very good smart phone for me.Hi Phary,
You should be proud of N8 afterall you invested twice the money on a mobile which is half times worth of Wave....
Don't know why everyone is so insecure with the evolving BADA...??

I wouldnt know about Ovi Maps, bt most of the thngs u mentioned are about software related. And to me, the 1 second the response speed of the phone doesnt mean much if the phone doesnt live up to the name "smartphone". Oh, and abt Symbian being outdated? I doubt, ye see most of y'all specsheet geeks tend te confuse the UI wit the OS. If Symbian were te "dress up" as good as Android or iOS all of a sudden it would b up to date? Thatz a lame argument really

N8 is a good camera for pictures, that is the only good thing about the outdated Symbian-phone. Ovi-store totally sucks, as does ovi-maps even though it is free.
