Just picked up my N8 at FedEx in Nashville, TN!
Hey, for any US people, Nokia requires a signature in person! My neighbor was going to pick mine up when FedEx came this morning, but they would not leave it, even with my signature on my door!
About to tear into the box. Finally, my N8 is here!!!!!
good design,but features tooooo pooooooooor.it has only 12mp cam and 16gb memmory.in the case of OS,display,processor very bad.GalaxyS is more good.
nokia n8 is really amazing, imagine the HDMI, play like playing in real playstation, connecting flash drive to phone without any hustle, plus the 12mp camera i really like it :D good job NOKIA
Its looking good.Nice design.But in the cace of featers its toooo pooor.Now nokia looking for only design.Why can't u add a 1GHz processor, a little more good screen clarity and a good operating system.......why....?........why.......?its not fare with this price

mR. k, 12 Oct 2010can ne N8 owner plz help me wid few questions...???
1.does it supports all symbian s60v5 so... moremost(or alteast many of) s60v5 apps work on the symbian^3..
u dont need screen protector, N8 has grollia glas, which is scratch proof.. you'd only waste ur money buying screen protector, not to mention it looks ugly sometimes
dont remeber how much memory c: has, as i remeber it was NOT much, but HOPEFULLY enough
UzY3L, 13 Oct 2010Hello, Mark! Seems that it's quite a different story, price wise, where you're from. I'm from... moreOver here in holland the N8 is 440 unlocked, wave goes for 350. And about the megapixels, in themselves they do not say anything, but the images the N8 makes really are in a class of its own. Just curious, does the wave have games like NFS, GT Racing, Avatar?
I'm in US...FexEx tried to deliver my N8 today and they would leave it at my door (I was at work), grrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!
About to run out to FexEx to see if they have it.
does anybody of you really own nokia N8. if yeah, please confirm if it has inbuild SIP stack and we can define SIP profiles to use VOIP..
is there anything called internet call in it?
Mark, 13 Oct 2010Hmmm, over here Wave is almost the same price as the N8. What about the downsides of the Wave.... moreHello, Mark!
Seems that it's quite a different story, price wise, where you're from. I'm from Romania and prices for the N8 start from 560euros going to over 600 if you want it unbranded and unlocked. The Wave is going for 260euros also unbranded and unlocked. And, at first, I thought that Samsung was trying to commit financial suicide with the launch of the Bada OS. But I've been keeping an eye on the Samsung Apps store and almost 2 months ago, there were ONLY 200 and something apps. A month ago it went to 600 apps and now it's at 800 and going. All FREE. I'd say it's not a bad store for a 5 month old mobile OS.
As for the downsides, yes you are right : no Ovi, no Xenon, no HDMI, no 12MP camera. But as I said, you don't need more than 5MP even on a 22 inch monitor.
I guess it depends on what region the phones are sold, I guess. For the price of the Wave of course I would buy the N8. But over here, that's another story.
Anonymous, 12 Oct 2010The N8 is too superior compare to S8500 wave, that's why Nokia release their mid-end Symbian^3... more"S Amoled vs CBD Amoled : par"
Actually, S-Amoled is nothing compared to CBD-Amoled (which is newer technology)
Nokia's CBD quality is way superior according to many reviews and comparisons on the web.
UzY3L, 13 Oct 2010:) Interesting reply. I just love how people get pumped up over simple facts. How many of you ... moreHmmm, over here Wave is almost the same price as the N8. What about the downsides of the Wave. Bada? Really?
Anonymous, 12 Oct 2010The N8 is too superior compare to S8500 wave, that's why Nokia release their mid-end Symbian^3... more:) Interesting reply. I just love how people get pumped up over simple facts. How many of you use or need faster HSDPA or two days of non-stop music play? Not to mention these are all just numbers. Nokia has always boasted better figures than anybody else but the real experience is hands on. For example, the Nokia 7710 was supposed to survive with 35hours of music play. So was the N73 but after more than 5 hours with the phone set to offline mode, the battery had 2 lines left.
And how is the N8 mid-range? It's almost iPhone 3GS money. 560euros is not mid-range and the Wave is 260euros
I'm not saying the N8 isn't good it's just too expensive. I mean, what are you paying for? The faster HSDPA? Class 33 EDGE? Symbian?
So what if Bada OS is new? it's almost 5 months old and there are almost 1000 FREE apps and games on the Samsung Store page. And counting. By the way, I have tested the I9000 Galaxy S and the Wave and have found the Galaxy S with its Android OS to be slower than the Wave. Not to mention the Galaxy S's camera only has geo-tagging. Not even image-stabilization or a flash.
I'm not a Wave fan either. I don't think it should have Bada OS and I don't like the way it looks. Not to mention I would have expected a Xenon-flash.
I like the N8 but it just doesn't justify the price.
If it were MY hard-earned money, I would buy the Wave. It's cheaper and faster. If you don't care about the not so small camera and just...use the wireless to connect to the net, it's a great phone for the price!
