No great display no great ram no processor everything is to old aged exept camera
A real waste of money..
Nokia it is not all about the camera please try to improve the OS so u can beat IOS and android this is the only point of failure in Nokia devices right now, user need more flexible applications like IOS the OVI store comparing to the other market is the last one, knowing well that i adore Nokia and symbian from long time ago but now i am so disappointed from the OS except that i respect the shape performance and hardware

Ghost, 10 Mar 2012Ok.You agreed that symbian is in the old 98 age so multiple cores are not needed.thank youThe applications back in win98 that are used totally different and the applications used today are incompatible with win98.
Meanwhile Belle can use the similar applications like android does so it is totally different with win98.

For Belle, it runs almost similar application with android smoothly (even multitasking) yet just with a single CPU...
For those who are ranting about the phone's processor, think about this: The device used in the MWC was just a prototype. What if this is not the final specs?
Look at this info: http://www.arm.com/products/processors/classic/arm11/
What if they really did put a dual-core processor in this?
Belle/Carla are rumored to not have support for dual-core processors. But what if they release the next OS with this, then configuring this phone's OS to enable the usage of the second core?
One can speculate, but this is Nokia.
While reading through the comments, there's many people comparing phones. So, I wanted to do it too.. Here's the thing, my friend bought a Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo and my cousin bought a Samsung Galaxy Note. While comparing both and everything is at default, the Galaxy Note has a small lag when sliding through the application and the Xperia Neo worked smoothly. So, in conclusion, when comparing specs it may be better, but, while trying it in real life is a different thing. SO DON'T TRY TO UNDERMINE OTHER PHONES! TRY IT BEFORE YOU DO!

Nikon has claimed that it's not worried
by the new Nokia 808 Pureview
smartphone, which features a 41
million pixel camera and Carl Zeiss
lens, instead claiming that it is still
growing in a shrinking market.
Speaking to TechRadar, Jeremy Gilbert,
UK marketing manager for Nikon UK,
said "As long as people come into
photography, then that's all that
"We're not thinking too hard about it, if
we started worrying what the mobile
phone industry was doing then that
would complicate matters."
Last year, the Nikon Coolpix S3100 was
the best-selling compact camera in
Europe, while earlier in the year James
Loader, product manager for Coolpix
claimed that Nikon had yet to feel the
bite from the rise of smartphones.
The news comes after it was revealed
that compact camera sales were down
30% in 2011, when compared with
"We're still growing in a declining
market," Gilbert said, "We're still
building our proportion of the market."
Gilbert also said that Nikon was the
top-seller of compact cameras during
February 2012, knocking the previous
leader, Fuji, off the top spot.
"Our L series [Nikon's budget range] is
doing extremely well, and we have
worked hard to get a much broader
variety of cameras in supermarkets to

my N8 with 680mhz and 256mb ram can run Belle smoothly the 808 has 2X (double) the N8s specs which is more than enough for Belle far more its overkill what that means though is the 808 is able to upgrade to future iterations of Symbian without any worry
