Well I pre-ordered it about 2 weeks ago now, it needs to be released so I can change my phone.. I really don't want to have to get a iPhone 4gs
I must confess that there is this temptation as regards s3 and even htc one series.but i still do have very strong faith and trust for nokia technology.no apologies pls.Nokia rocks nd Pureview a better view of the picture of the future.Love my N8.

Megapixel count aside, the amount of detail and lossless zoom you can get is simply amazing. There is a video floating around which demonstrates the amazing quality and abilities of this phone. No iphone 4s or galaxy or any phone can match the amount of detail and zoom that this phone has.
Dont understand why it would have bracketing on the camera options, surely without a tripod its impossible!
This phone seems to be i nice phone, but i have to have some hands on time with it to know for sure, i have been a nokia fan all my life, and never a problem with any of the nokia phones i have had in the past

And people use these things for watching videos and all kinds of things which is where the word Smart comes from in Smartphone, and this thing is gonna look seriously pixelated making me chuckle when i see the word PureView.

Anonymous, 14 May 2012have you ever used belle.think before posting anything I have used Belle OS and doesn't seem great. Nokia needs to improve its OS standards or else its a waste launching such a good phone. Another OS, i would have definitely gone for it.

I think you really should make a youtube video where you tell about these good differences between symbian and android. That would be good informative and helpfull for people. :)

Nokia developed this sensor specific for this phone!! DSLRs have big lenses to compensate the sensor size. Check some samples in the evening to see how great this camera is!
[deleted post]Yeah. That's sad but really true. All of my friends who are using Nokia's symbian envy my android or the iOS of others and they say it's a crappy stuff now with all these better OS in the market. A lot of people dreams of having an iPhone which is a good device, really but at the same time, they don't know that android phones have the biggest market share nowadays. Sony Ericsson, Samsung and LG are just few using android. That's why Nokia is now offering Windows phones because symbian is one incompetent OS now.
Nokia just saved me a bunch of money. Now I don't have to spend $40,000 to get a 41MP camera.

c drive = windows system folder whereas d drive=ddr ram inside your pc
only difference here is phone uses z drive(rom)to store its OS whereas in pc its stored in windows folder
At least this one has better storage then at&t one x lol, making it easier to snap more picture on the go!
I'll reserve my judgement on this thing until i see a direct comparison between this and other top end Smartphones for image quality, because anyone who knows anything about cameras knows Optics are everything, and a little 3mp camera can thrash an 8mp job if it has a larger sensor that lets more light in, and i'm betting in real life this isn't that much better than your iPhone 4S's and Galaxy S3's of the world, and if so i'd compare this to a big American engine with lots of capacity and noise but thrashed by it's European rivals at 1/3 the capacity.
