We have the top maker of mobile phones again offering last year's specifications in what looks like a New Old Soap design!
The resolution is same as Nokia 5800 xpress but the width is pretty much more!
I wonder from where are these chaps getting their parts from? So big and antiquated!!
Cant they for one moment check what the Japanese are doing?
Customers don't mind a great copy in terms of design, if that is ranking with the best!
Nokia And Sony ericsson deserve to lose their positions very soon.
European designs are famed in everything else but now seriously biting the dust in this segment.. How long should we customers keep paying for the increased inefficiencies of these companies?
Added to that our friends are giving it more than 6 on all scales..
Well, I am now switching over to the smartest ones rather than choke cos of loyalty!
[deleted post]yes that's hardware based. still limited. Apps makes smrtphone a smartphone. anyway, n8 has cold response in uk now. n8 uses cheapest cpu and gpu available on the market for its price tag.

I can't say that I like flash sites or visit them very often, but there are many sites that require flash enabled to do the thing you wanted to do.
I'll be honest with you, I have flash disabled 95% of the time on my N8, cos most of the time the flash ads only slow it down, but there are times when I need to enable it, and in those times I won't have to curse Jobs for making the decision for me.
[deleted post]i just witnessed how flash slows down nexus one. Flashgames on web aren't meant for touch devices. I won't watch 2hr video on my mobile phone. Usually u watch vid at home and laptop is ard.
[deleted post]Bluetooth file transfer is intentionally disabled on iph to attract more apps developers since piracy is hard on iph.
n8 capabilities is constant as it is based on hardware. iph abilities are unlimited as it based on apps. can u read comic book n8? can u play fifa2011 on n8? can u listen as much radio stations as iph? can u play monkey island and sonic4 on n8? can u rent tv shows on n8? can u use windows remote desktop on n8? can u read as many newspaper as iph on n8? I know u can shoot better photos but who cares when we use mobile photos on social sites. Can u have genius playlist on n8? can u have pes2011 on n8? can u even multitouch map? can u use parrot drone (real flight control) on n8? Parrot drone is wireless flying replica can be controlled by iphone
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2010little secret about n8 is that it uses same CPU and GPU as in n97. processor was unclocked in ... moreIm pretty sure the N97 didnt even have a GPU. I'm perfectly clear of what the N8 has and it runs the device and Symbian^3 beautifully. I've owned the device over a week now, I'm pretty sure I know more about it than you, thank you.
You can tell yourself that all it has over the iPhone is the camera, but your fooling yourself.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2010basic function of smrtph is web browser and ios has best browser. Flash lag browser so i don;t... moreIndeed, browsing is ONE of the basic functions and iPhones are probably the best at this, with the downside of no flash available for some of the sites that may require it.
However, that's not the only one. I have decided myself that I won't buy any phone nowadays if it doesnt have USB OnTheGo. Stuff like accessing memory are all so basic things, but cos Jobs said you are not allowed to do it, you won't do it.. I don't want that from my phone
Just got the N8 tracking number from Nokia USA.
Since Monday is a Holiday in USA (uhhhhh!), the N8 will arrive on Tuesday, the 12th.

[deleted post]basic function of smrtph is web browser and ios has best browser. Flash lag browser so i don;t want. Flashgames on desktop browser aren't optimised for touch device anyway. ipod is so good that s^3 copied its ui. user interface is another basic function and S^3 makes me dizzy with it

It's a great device in few areas, but in overall balance and capability it can't really match the N8. But the thigns you can do on iPhone 4, it does them REALLY well.
But as said, the people who are here most likely don't even consider iPhone cos they are not satisfied with it's overall capabilities, thus they look for something that can provide em, thus they do not want to read about the iPhone 4 here.
If we wanna discuss the iPhone 4, I promise that we'll come to it's page.
[deleted post]pes 2011, fifa 2011 and sonic4 and gyro shooting games!! Can n8 has gyro shooting?? Games look hd on hd retina screen. CPU and GPU of iph4 makes its graphic ahead of other os. Check project sword which will be released soon

If u can't afford iph4 and hav no chance to test it and shut up. You know apple's multitasking fr utube r? i own iph4 so i know how good it is
The disadvantages of n8 are the softwares support but ovi store is growing fast affter nokia qt sdk, hardware of n8 is complete and excellent which you can change with softwaaare update
no matter how good iphone ui and software is , you xcant change the iphone hardware, it is a shame,
apple now have advantge like app store, the apps in there are not that impressive,but the games are,
the apps there are fart apps, good ones are thegoogle earth, and tomtom, , dont forget ovi maps is the best satnav app
games iphone win hands down, but ovi store is growing,
thank to rovio for ring angry birds to ovi store, bounce battle and ovi maps challenge,
let us go to contact iphone games develpers to ask for symbian version of games, because nokiausers are mpore than iphone users and android users combined

Good phone but its price in Egypt so so so so so so much and we know that this price will be the same for very little weeks so we can wait.
AMANITA, 09 Oct 2010What abt this ? - Main disadvantages of iPhone 4 - Hardware design is prone to reception iss... moreit has true multitasking. It just pause game when u go other apps. Who want to run games when going to other apps? 16gb is more than enough for storage. FM radio?? Iphone comes with data plan which is unlimited to listen radio. ipod never has radio as no one wants radio quality music. One of the reasons ppl buy idevices is because of itunes. It helps organising and its close nature attracts developers to create apps. No mp3 player outsold ipod yet and no single model high end smartphone outsold iphone. Blackberry slides its share after iph4 launch. So are htcs. Symbian well it is even a common os in western world for high end smartphone. Symbian smartphone share from low end phones
[deleted post]I say iphone 4 is bad
because of the pricep,can be used as netbook replacement
People need to learn how to love symbian ui,
do you wonder why symbian 3 need menu list which use some of the precious screen estate. The reasons are this is theplace they can put more funtionality into the apps, in symbian 4 this menu list will be moved to the top of the screen
my suggestion to symbian 4 is that the top menu list should be launched by using a icons instead of long thin bar in order to save space,
key to ui success is that graphics is better than words!
