You are just another troll. According to your post, you ... moreYou are spreading misinformation. Im a many years debian linmux user, i dont even dual boot, coz i dont need windows (but i have it in vmware..). But saying linux is faster in any PC is wrong. Its not. WinXP has proved to be just as fast as debian lenny, and is MUCH faster than Ubuntu.
Sorry guys, Ubuntu is the slowest OS you can find still, they have improved some of the worst performance issues but it still sux.
Symbian is slow also. The core is lightweight/fast but wats a core without support apps? Modern symbian nokias dont have the power to run them smoothly, who cares how light the core is then?? Its an Arm11 processor still... The result is.. SLOW.
For those who dont understand, take windows, do you think your desktop is windows? No its not, thats the program Explorer.exe. Just like Symbians homescreens and menus are not Symbian but support apps.
Compare it to linux, linux is just a kernel, a shell, linux doesnt become useful before you add a desktop environment, and that is GNU and not linux. So then you have what is known as GNU/Linux. and STILL not useful without applications.
Same as Symbian. You need a fone app, text app, watever apps, GUIs and stuff and God knows what. And these are the programs that require processing power. It doesnt matter how lightweight the core/kernel is, programs are not interpreted throught the OS, they run on the processor, they are compiled into processor instructions and therefor require processing power. WHICH NOKIA N8 DONT HAVE. (Android apps are kinda interpreted through the dalvik, a little different story)
Price drop for Nokia N8...
Confirmed by sources..
Minimun of Rs.2000.
Im getting on this wednesday..
As samsung wave is not available..
Both have equal positives..

alot of people don't know why linux is so much better then windows
i use linux all the time i dual booted my laptop
and ubuntu runs smooth like peanut butter XD
for those who doesnt own n8 and own other phone brand get out of this forum. play with your toys instead.

You are just another troll. According to your post, you never even saw N8 except maybe in Apples PR (Eldar Murtazin) review.
I have 45 days this phone and iPhone 3GS.
Battery last 3 times more on N8 than iPhone
I personally compared iPhone 4 (before want him 2) and 1Ghz iPhone 4 is SLOWER than my N8 and 3GS.
Think like this: Linux and Windows
Linux will run faster on any PC just like Symbian^3
Symbian^3 is more mature and much better optimized than iOS. Therefore no need 1Thz "Tera" processor neither 1Gb or something RAM.
Instead trolling in here I suggest that you go to the first Nokia dealer and TRY N8. Maybe will stop believe in fairytale served by Apple mercenaries.

i'm waiting for the 32gb MicroSD card so i have 48gb
agian like i had on my N900 :3
The more I'm using it, the more I like it! No lags, plenty widgets, ExCellent camera, just watched my movies off 16Gb flash drive used on divx player, WOW. Garmin GPS takes less than 5 secs to acquire satellite, 3D games are awsome, the HW 3d accelleration truly works! No lagging, plenty of apps considering age of platform. Was sceptical at first, but after 1 day, I'm hooked. Battery life over WAVE is double, running apps all day, video etc. Not to mention the CAMERA, WOW! Hdmi is AWSome. For South Africans, mxit works like a charm. Loving it, get one!
thinker, 11 Dec 2010It's like an iphone with more features but the processor terribly slow it's not slow at all XD symbian never needed 1ghz
the only reason why people think it's slow cause
iOS and androidOS require alot of clockspeed and RAM to run
so if you used a previous symbian device and moved to symbian3 you would notice a big speed difference
Thats a very good account of symbian YET again..I get trouble with my n8 and even tho nokia promised they had got all this sorted out its still symbian troubles.
To person with 1 day battery thats good most are getting 11-12hrs with moderate to heavy usage.They could have easily got 1500 bp4l in these big devices but no they put piddly batterys in YET again..Why dont nokia learn from n95-1 about battery before putting in 950ma battery in n96..For gods sake they keep coming up with excuse ND yes THEY RECKON THE 680mhZ PROCCESSOR IS WELL UNDERPOWER...
nOW BEFORE ALL THE BACK LASH IVE BEEN NOKIA/SYMBIAN FAN SINCE 3650 BUT they put in the lower proccessor to save battery.Why did they not use their god damn brains and think of putting bp-4l in and upping proccessor to that of vivaz instead of underclocking it..The vivaz has poor battery at 1200mA li-po and we all know how good s/e are at batterys?
Its just how nokia are ,i think they dont learn do they.In fact all todays smartfones are crap arnt they,,their all lacking in some department..I an using a BB 9105 and that runs perfect with 32GB card.Can/video would only score 5/10 but at least it does everything with no moaning,that also applys to the samsung wave too..
why the 1ghz chips are not used by nokia.

I first wanted the nokia E7 but fixed focus just isnt my type of camera.. plus if the nokia n8 is so huge then how much bigger will the E7 be!?

We all know that Meego will be Nokia's flagship device-OS in future but it is still in its developing stage.
Anyhow, Thanks for the information.

I would have purchased this phone definitely if this Nokia N8 has 4.0 Inches Display and 480x800 pixels resolution.
I think that 360x640 pixel resolution is a limitation of only the OS and not the hardware. So, we can expect a better resolution with the next Symbian*3 version.

However, this is a forum for user opinions and reviews which means that we can come here and ask questions regarding the phone.
