Hi Wheez. Thanks, I'm glad to be back! :) I would like to wait for the final review tho first. It might be my next phone.
I'm still thiking heavily about which platform I invest my money in & keep re-considering all the options, benefits, disadvantages, advantages, features, improvements, strategies, performance.
Ok it's always been a given that product support, bugs, fixes, improvements take time even with Nokia, not so sure about other manufacturers. But the support is there years down the line, Nokia have trust in the past, have had reliability in the past, experience in the past, do I have this trust in other manufacturers?
The thing is. Symbian has always given me it's mature functionality, compatibility, customizability, wide range of application support, interoperability. It's been widely adapted for the purposes I've needed it for. It's done them well.
But I have also been crying out for the added benefit of newer features, but I probably know why they haven't added them to the particular phone. I've had memory full issues, freezes, but only occasionally & they are fixable & also minor problems that don't occur regularly.
Things like flash support have annoyed me. Web browser & multiple window, pages weren't there. Copy & paste wasn't there for text strings. Although it's possible to copy images from web browser. These were probably rightly decidedly left out due to memory limitations anyway.
S^3 should change all this. I'm very curious & keen to try S^3. But also I'd like to have a taste of Android also. The freedom of drag & drop also is nice with Android for any type of shortcut, widget, more homscreens, live wallpapers. They have the web browser functions that Symbina doesn't have.
My next buying decision is going to be based clearly in technology, features, functionality. The kinds of things Symbian doesn't yet have that I have pointed out. Things I'm look for to be there. The touch controls & gestures. Also the swype support of Android with HTC Sense or BADA.
I guesse I'll wait & see for a while.
this phone is the king
6 million hits
and its still considered as unreleased phone
this is a revolution in phone industry world
waiting for it****************
this phone is not like iphone 4 ,wave and galaxy s because its not having 1ghz processor like hummingbird or apple a4 and ram like 512mb most importantly its not having supper amoled or ips back led display with higher resolution. this is the reality BRO!
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2010ppl using wave saying it is good but the few ppl used n8 saying it has many disadvantages n al... morereally!!! you are right... so do you have used wave and N8 both????
if not then stop "barking" (as you said should not bark without using it)
and as a humna being i am saying if you have used wave then plz go to wave site and "bark" there only
Thank you everyone for your constructive feedback on this device, I know so much more about it. I am also confused why the owners of unsupported plastic smartphones come here to show their lack of insight... but
6 MILLION HITS, and its not even out everywhere! 110.000 Votes and one of the highest scores, even with all the haters out there!
pre-booking price is 25000Rs at priority dealer in India .approx US $568.
The most important component of a 12 Mpix camera is the man behind it.
[deleted post]j019, the reality is that you are afraid your darling galaxy s,wave,htc desire,i phone 4 would be thrown to rubbish bin by N8 and that makes feel so insecure!
I have samsung galaxy s and i bought this phone yesterday.nokia n8 is great phone ,but compareing with galaxy s is ridiculous.Galaxy s is monster
Once again, this has now become the samsung wave page!
If its not samsung, its iphone, or htc guys stirring here. Ah well, it all adds to the popularity of this page as someone said below :)
Once Samsung get's their BADA platform going with the advent of plenty of BADA Apps, that will be nice.
Also I stumbled across a GpsMap App for £1.25. But there would only be a small data connection charge anyway for maps downloaded. Unless of course you download the maps to you phone using PC KIES software - if it works.
Then GpsMaps works offline on your phone using only the Internal compass to guide you. Not sure if their are many other GPS map programs but it sure looks ok for the 1st version. But it looks very promising for samsung phones.
I guesse the only problem I here from many people is problems with KIES. Once samsung sort this problem out things should be fine for Samsung users.
[deleted post]You increase the total hits and daily interest, both of which are ranked on the front page and total hits can be found from "Rankings" as well.
N8 is on top of daily interest by over double the hits to the next one (which happens to be a Nokia phone too)
[deleted post]How many hits for N8 have you contributed to the record 6 million hits? Thank you!
nokis n8 , is a BOMB !! and it will explode soon !! its a great phone , yes android is a very advanced os than symbian but this phone is a serious multimedia device which i dont think any android giant has , i use HTC desire but am bored of it now , i wan2 get back to nokia may b e7 if not n8 !! all phones are different guys pls dont compare it , just go by ur needs !! and pls bada os is good but just coz it has 1gig processor its not great ! symbian can run smoothly on 680mhz itself
ppl using wave saying it is good but the few ppl used n8 saying it has many disadvantages n also d 12 mp camera is nt tat good.so first use n8 then bark.
karthikeyan M, 10 Oct 2010My Personal opinion about nokia n8:
Hi first of all i am a big true nokia fan untill today.... moreJust look at the pics on the internet. If you still think it's a letdown, ok, but the majority of the world doesnt agree with you.
The demo model probably had like 3000 peoples fingerprints on it :D
I think I stumbled into Desire HD page sometime ago and saw you posting there, that's why I'm asking.
And gratz N8, 6 million hits :)
Welcome back, Engineer Man. It's been a while.
Are you getting the N8 yourself, btw?
wave is a clear winner with one ghz processor N8 only can imagine the features.samoled screen,superfast os,grt sound quality n video quality.but at lesser price.dont know why some ppl here are trying to defend n8 with some imaginary points.say some thing which is proven.or i will say stop pretending n buy a wave tomorrow.:)
