The leaked photos late last year looked awesome but now that it's been announced am not liking this design at all.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2010Well Nokia has pulled out the stops on this one and it seems that the fan bois will have some ... moreIf only that were true right? I don't know where you got that iphone is shits, maybe iphone first gen, however world wide apple have sold more than 50MILLION iphones. That's more than the amount of N900 and N97 and N97 combined. This is going by flagship vs flagship. Sure you can whine and say "nokia has 41% of smartphone market share", but they have more than one "smart phone". Notice the quotations because things Nokia considers as a smart phone many others don't. You may not like Apple as a company but you can't possibly deny that the Iphone was a success and changed how mobile phone manufacturers do business. Every company out there is trying to imitate Apple using an all capacitive touch screen based mobile phone with a centralized application market. Nokia is copying them with Ovi, Google is copying them with android market, Microsoft, Samsung also copying marketplace. The Iphone 4 may have its drawbacks with some problems such as antenna reception,however once you get pass that, theres no denying that the iphone 4 is a great device. The OS is very user friendly, the screen resolution is the most powerful of any phone, pixel density is also the highest, battery life is VERY GOOD, and the camera is actually really good too.
OOOOh imagine the hd video stutter as it tries to write to the slow mass memory.Every single mass memory device ffrom nokia is built to last and slow so whats going to be so diffeent from this.It does not matter if this fone is 2.0GHz and dual GPU its still will only write at speed storage/memory will allow and by nokias last efforts its not good.
Well Nokia has pulled out the stops on this one and it seems that the fan bois will have some explaining to do. iphones are shit - they always were - but this will be a hard pill for many to swallow.
Phone looks good and has cool features. Would lovce to use this phone.....
nikhil, 28 Sep 2010how to use front camera in n900Try visiting Maemo.org this should help you on your N900 Tablet..
aashiq, 28 Sep 2010oh ma god what a design................. superb............like it very much...........pls ... moreYeah nice design and another slim phone. I hope the symbian^3 is not as faulty as the symbian^1..
oh ma god what a design.................
superb............like it very much...........pls release it sooooooooooooon.........
Hope the Symbian^3 will have very smooth touch like the Android in Galaxy, otherwise no use for this phone...
Nokia please concentrate on making the transferring between the desk-tops as smooth as the iphone & Galaxy S i9000.
ShameOnNokia, 28 Sep 2010and once again the nokia fanboy strikes. If you even bothered reading instead of jumping to co... moreits very good phone & n8 is also good & iphone4 is a bullshit it can never take on nokia
hayato, 28 Sep 2010You are commenting on the screen, not symbian.Can Symbian handle larger reslution than 360x640, if it can do so why do not Nokia do so on any of their phones, and if Symbian can not handle larger resolutions then it truly sucks!
hayato, 28 Sep 2010I know what galaxy s can do - 90mt/s, i read it on the same post. However it's the cpu who ... moresure you can view it as me promoting the Galaxy S, because its a great product. I have no issues with battery life and mine is indeed a G9 battery. The hummingbird is a SoC. So it is a system that incorporates gpu and cpu by the way. I don't know why you would think that the cpu puts out 90m tps, thats even more impressive. That's like saying an intel IGP(integrated grapics processor) can outperform a dedicated GPU(nvidia, ATI(AMD)). If the Galaxy S isn't sold in the phillipines why would the N8/E7? Forgive me as I don't know which markets nokia directly sells to. I would imagine that nokia and samsung being number 1 and 2 in mobile units sold world wide would basically sell in the same market?
ShameOnNokia, 28 Sep 2010going by your logic, then so can android, ios, windows mobile 7, webOS(now owned by HP), BB OS... moremuch as i want a debate with you right now, i have an important thing to do, i can't stay here any longer, till nxt time.
this phone is crap. bigger screen size but the pixel remains the same?! and ovi store is a joke!
ShameOnNokia, 28 Sep 2010thats a real shame,considering the iphone 3GS clocked at 600Mhz can put out 28M tps, the Galax... moreI know what galaxy s can do - 90mt/s, i read it on the same post.
However it's the cpu who does that in galaxy s' case, not the gpu.
I appreciate that you do such intense promotion for galaxy s(no offense, but that's how i look at your posts), but i read many user reviews about it's battery life. Those reviews scared me. If you don't experience any battery drains, maybe your using a battery marked g9. On those post, also, there's an issue about g7 and g9 batteries, g9 assumed to last longer.
And plust the fact that galaxy s will never be released here on the philippines is an enough reason not to have one. I don't prefer shipping.
I'm considering n8 btw. At least, the aluminum casing provides me a secure feeling that it can last many years of usage, than any fragile looking samsung(that's basically accdg. to my preferences).
hayato, 28 Sep 2010Symbian can do much better with the help of 3rd party apps. There's an app for conversation... moregoing by your logic, then so can android, ios, windows mobile 7, webOS(now owned by HP), BB OS. They can all perform better and become better with help of third party apps. 3D images? whats the point? Its almost as useful as the farting app on itunes. Free internet browsing? how is that possible? unless you're jacking someone's access point internet does not come out of no where "magically and free". Symbian^3 may be a whole new OS, however from preliminary reviews from just about everyone who's had their hands on a symbian^3 device its failed to impress anyone. Read up on reviews concerning E7 and N8. They might impress someone who lets say just stepped up from an N97 or an older symbian device, but for anyone who has used iOS or android its failed to impress in that point. From anywhere from user intuitive/experience, to accessibility. I've got nothing against nokia seriously, I just feel they keep failing to go by what their consumers want. Nokia has failed to bring anything to the market that can compete, all they do now is rely on their name brand, they're even worst than apple in that sense. At the very least apple puts out products that are competitive, only difference is apple just charges you more for it(apple macbook vs laptop). I don't own a macbook, or plan to own one. I am a windows 7 fan, so don't think im an apple zealot. However with that said, i'd seriously consider owning an iphone before I even purchase another Nokia. Nokia does nothing but copy now a days, however they turn around and do it too, ie battery not being replaceable, or iphone 4's antenna's problem. If you don't remember, the E71 has had issues with its antenna located at the very bottom where the microphone is. This problem existed way before the iphone 4 antenna debacle. don't get me wrong, I loved the E71, loved it so much i bought the E71-2 just to see what the real deal was. I owned the E71-x first then got the E71-2 a couple weeks later.
ShameOnNokia, 28 Sep 2010Symbian is stable because theres not much you can do on it. LOL i never said symbian wasn't st... moreSymbian can do much better with the help of 3rd party apps.
There's an app for conversational view of sms.
There's an app to block the call of an annoying contact.
There's an app to hide your folder and your files.
There's a modified java app for free internet browsing.
There's an app that could change your system font.
There's an app to view your photos 3D.
There's an app to play divx files.
There's even an app to play any file format.
There's an app that can replace your file manager to gain full control of your files - system or private.
There's an app that could uninstall all of your apps at once.
There's an app that could get any social networking updates on one place.
There's an app to replace your usual homescreen
And there's more.
Symbian isn't just doing all of this natively, until now.
If there is one critism i could accept with regards to the symbian OS. That could be it's lack of optimization on touchscreen devices, and it's slow response on the eyecandy trend. Which is primarily the reason why it gains such a bad image in the first place, and why people think it's physically unattractive, therefore dumb? (i don't even think they're synonymous, i just translated it based on some other's own thinking)
Symbian^3, however, is a whole new platform. Rewritten to support touch devices even more, with additional Qt. framework. Let's wait until the first s^3( N8) will perform, then make the unbiased judgement.
I myself will never buy one if it can't perform well. I have learned enough after n97's ram issue, i never bought the phone anyway, just prevented me from doing so.
hayato, 28 Sep 2010The GPU - broadcom BCM2727 can do 32 million triangles per second (as for the N8, but since E7... morethats a real shame,considering the iphone 3GS clocked at 600Mhz can put out 28M tps, the Galaxy S does 90M tps. Once again proving nokia's track record of putting out last generation hardware and marketing it as a high end product only for nokia fanboys to be fooled. So nokia's broadcom chip only puts out about 45,000 triangles per clock cycle, where as the Galaxy S puts out 90,000 per clock cycle. Double efficiency. This is comparing an N8 which isn't even released yet to a phone that's been out since August.
