Nokia N8 launching on 12th October in INDIA at mumbai:
[deleted post]Agreed, but see, it's all about balance. In the end, I'm pretty sure most people are happier with the extended battery life over the few millsecond faster transitions :)
Which reminds me, like 20 hours of standby, 2-3 hours of music playback on speaker, at least one hour worth of web browsing (havnt used it much cos i've been home pretty much all day) and the battery is still at 90%+ :)
Wheez, 09 Oct 2010When was India supposed to get theirs? Was it as of next week?Yes! Its hitting the storers on 17th Oct. Just confirmed it from Nokia Priority dealer in Pune (India).
I just hope symbian 4 and meego coming earlier than expected cause they are all about new ui and new facelift, new image of nokia phone
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2010then why symbian is losing share of 10% since last yrIt is because fail to listen to customers,
even i admit n97 is bad, i still have respect for them,
i dont see apple products can benifit human being, they are the real great money sucker.
I am currently powerbook 12" user, i regret not buying windows notenbook,
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2010then why symbian is losing share of 10% since last yrCos S60 5th edition wasn't so good. And it wasnt only the OS, N97 had insufficient hardware.
Symbian^3 is miles ahead of any previous Symbian and anyone who tries to say N8 is fail cos of older Symbians, fails.
CPU frequency doesnt say much alone. Just go look at GLBenchmarks, N8 is right up there even with iPhone 4, Galaxy S, EVO 4G, you name it. Each has a different emphasis, but overall all are very even. N8s GPU is alot better than other devices', thats why it can compete even with 680 Mhz (which is underclocked).
To top it off, N8 has better battery life than any of those devices.
But could you iTrolls go to your own forum, we don't wanna discuss a iPhone here. Please?
Can someone confirm with me if these games work flawlessly on n8?

Iphone users will never understand the importance of freedom and complete features.
N8 = netbook, or mac mini + nokia phone functinality
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2010ppl who voting for iph4 don;t hav iph4 themselves. hav u ever buy designers stuff? Simplicity ... moreGood design is essentially to incorporate the finest materials and harmonize them in such a manner that it is essentially a better performer than the previous edition and certainly a shade better than the competitors if you are the No.1 Like NOkia.
Imagine a Merc SLK of 2011 edition looking bulkier than the 2007 edition and with lesser engine power!
In the field of electronics, it is imperative that size grows smaller and/or quality gets better.
Honestly, if you compare nokia 5800 to N8 in terms of exterior, what do you see? 5800 has lesser width for the screen of same resolution, which is a No-no, notwithstanding it is amoled, further there is no justification to use a 680Mhz processor while 1Ghz started appearing last year itself!
They ought to be hardworking too you see!
Just check the Docomo line up. We don't have even one mobile phone from any of the top 5 to match up in any given year.
I know, as I have used some of them.
Can we please focus on the N8 again. Just ignore the iPhone fans, a great device but not this is the N8 discussion page, not the iPhoane 4 discussion page.
And as someone posted below me, the FM Radio uses the headphones as it's antennas. Thus, requiring the headphones to be plugged in. Yeah, it's a shame. I wonder why it's still like this? Would figure it would be sufficient withotu the headphones too, but this seems to go unchanged, so maybe its a technical reason behind it.
mk, 09 Oct 2010I ll buy silver. It s gorgeous. I like all except black ! Ya silver white is nice ! Great combination,silver white and the black around the screen !
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2010You have to use a headphone which has a radio antenna.for me this is the first handicap on this phone :(...but still must have it :)
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2010how work the FMradio ? can i use it without earphones? or i must plug it ? please answer meYou have to use a headphone which has a radio antenna.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2010basic function of smrtph is web browser and ios has best browser. Flash lag browser so i don;t... moreSmartphone is first a phone. For a phone, the prime feature is connectivity. If your phone even can't handle signal properly, it loses all meaning as a phone in the fist place! Check your antenna gate out.
Wheez, 09 Oct 2010Fair enough, checked wikipedia the other day that said 2,5 mil units sold as of august somethi... morewho trust wiki?? I can write somethg there now. Iph4 sold 3millons in less than a month.
