I use my phone for,
videos,photos fully xenon lit,
TV out,HDMI pout,
basic timewaster games as real games need real buttons and d-pad and joystick,and some more things;
The 808 does all this with an overpowered proccessor plus companion proccessor on a familiar Symbian O/S whats not to like.Symbian does the job and gauranteed updates to 2016 and support onwards from then its the ONLY O/S thats gauranteed..By 2016 Apple will have lost trendinesss ,android buggy and boring leaving W7 which Nokia is trailblazing and Nokia will be back on top.
Kent, 04 Mar 2012What has the Carla OS?:)This is new update to nokia phone.
Incredible 360x640 Display ! - the same which exists since 3 years...
HTC, LG and Samsung are dealing with HD Displays, while Nokia is juggling their designs with the same old display !

Zahid1, 04 Mar 2012Will Nokia 808 get WiFi Direct in future software update? Please does anyone knowSorry, but that is currently unknown. Even Belle Feature Pack 1's full features are unknown. Maybe it is already in the OS, maybe it will come in a future update in case it is not available. Typical of Nokia... they sometimes hide features and let the users discover them, or put some disabled advanced features, and activate them later. Just wait until the actual phone or until someone fully explores its features and capabilities.
When/If I will have this phone, I will surely put all my focus and attention to fully explore its features and capabilities.
for the people who are critisizing symbian, biggest point which makes people thinking android is much better than symbian is the android market but let me know you the fact that many of the apps on market is just useless ( im using android on xperia mini and samsung galaxy ace) , and the most useful and popular apps on market are also avialable on nokia store (from skype, fring,vlingo to shazam, swype,youtube downloader and most popular games like angry bird, nfs,asphalt n fruit ninja all are avialable on nokia store too.) ofcourse android has some advantage over symbian and symbian has also some advantages over android ( like better multitasking which android has nowhere in comparison with symbian, better battery life, more secure and light os,). i think the only concern about symbian is life of the os as nokia is putting everything on wp7 leaving their own market gaint.
The latest android,, is ANDROID 5.0 BITTER MELON,lolz,,because they are all bitter and jealous!hahahalolz,
Michael, 04 Mar 2012Who want d camera....... Nokia people come up with android phone pls.... There wil be huge pro... moreWho wants a camera? Let's see: Camera = life, adventure, memories. Quad core android and 100000 apps = fat kid on a sofa. Easy. :-)
[deleted post]Try searching for Symbian custom firmwares and you will know that it is not only Nokia that releases firmwares for their phones. If you don't know where to search, try the search engine of the company that makes your Android Sour Grapes Operating Systems.
For the 5th time, don't just brag about that $100 android. Say it! You are just showing that you are just sprouting nonsense. Of the number of apps, how many useful ones are there? How many unique apps? Why need an app store with 400,000+ if thousands of them basically do just the same things. Some do better, some do worse. Don't get me wrong. The app store in Android is nice because there are many types of apps, but only few are unique. And the number of apps that basically do the same thing makes browsing take a lot of time.
Give an example of a phone originally running 1.4, but upgradable to 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich? Or maybe they can only be upgraded to (always and ever fastest and best OS) Android 6.9 Sour Grapes?
Why upgrade the old Symbian devices? They are cool as they are! Heck, even my old n73 can multitask like a droid! The only upgrade this phone needs is a hardware one, which is impossible for all phones. As for the other phones, like the n95, they can even DLNA like a boss! And those units were born long before Android 6.9 Sour Grapes.
You are proud of your inexpensive droids? Well, what can THEY do that Symbian cannot?
Hai,,,nokia super specification@ending the symbion,,,start the belle,,,i love nokia no choice of other mobile i expected 610@808 pureview,,,its running world its smartPhone small thing but high budget,,,nokia prepared the sale in poor ppl,,,great job,,,$
Who want d camera....... Nokia people come up with android phone pls.... There wil be huge profit.... Bcoz all wil buy noki instead of samsung or iphone....but keep it mid range
peppersam, 04 Mar 2012we are just trying to enlighten you nokia fools..we just feel sorry for you..its not too late.... moreWhy are you not in alcatel forums or samsung bada forums or any other forum but 808..Its got absolutley sod all to do with you how we spend our money..Why dont you spend your time going to hell instread..If your concern in life is what type of smartphone a person purchases you must lead a sad lowly life..The 808 has generated more interest than iphone and stole this years MWC in Barcelona..Accept the fact you are jealous of the 808 and that is why you are so bothered..
[deleted post]What u r saying for the whole day means google will increase its demand for more cores and Sammy & htc will continue to put that in their phone and in 2016 when Nokia will stop their support for Symbian your Samsung galaxy s5( may be galaxy s10) & htc 7x(maybe 7x^3) will have so many cores and so much gigs of ram that NASA will replace their super computer with 10 Samsung galaxy s5 and 5 htc 7x
And if 808 is so bad phone let it be a bad phone , what is your problem ?
U r shocked today to hear that Nokia put 41mpx cam in this phone then think they thought about it 5 years ago when nobody can thing about 12mpx(obviously n8 quality) cam in phone except nokia.
