@johan Now that the N8 is so good in taking pics do you think the 'point and shoot' cameras will eventually die out? I mean to say, it did not winn by just a bit and that Sony camera is not that cheap either. Ok, Sony is not what it used to be but still - the N8 is a cell phone for FSK !
Yeah, I saw that test. Well done Nokia N8. I was sure the Sony point and shoot will winn hands down. That reminds me of another similar shootout a few years ago. That time it was the N95 who unexpectedly won against the SE K850 camera cell. We all know now, the N95 went on to be one of Nokia's best sellers :-)
i ordered the n8 last month but still havn't get anything in my mail yet. every time i call nokia they always tell me to wait. how the hell they show and lie to the public and they can't sell to the public. that's sucks because i ahve to wait for along time to get the phone. i think nokia they should sent all of the phone out right the way not next month or next year.
Please stop comparing wave with n8.they are not the same class.Wave has 512 ram memory,1 ghz and best screen ever made.n8 has 680mhz,256 ram memory,poor resolution...nokia will always be two steps behind htc,i-phone,samsung...I,m so sorry for them because they can not create better phone then n8.
WOW, people go see the photo shootout blind test GSM Arena did ! Is absolutely unbelivable ! ! ! FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HUMAN HISTORY A CELLPHONE BEAT A DEDICATED 'POINT AND SHOOT' CAMERA ! ! ! I am not even into cell phones. I am a photographer. I just stumbled upon this site after reading the headline in our photo forum. Sience is a wonderfull thing. Things advance very fast. We are living in very exciting times. This N8 cell phone will go down in history. Probably I will end up getting one too.
Ill cancle my preorder tommrrow Thursday Oct, 7th.. If I don't get any confirmation.. I wanted the Orange colored one since it goes on preorder on all colors on Oct.8th Friday in the USA...
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2010if Nokia Fan like to help Nokia stay in business then please keep buying N* and if the phone i... moreit cant be compared too the iphone its too good a phone, have you seen the photos it produces? The amazing:)
IM in the USA too I live in Hawaii. I preordered it on the 16th of AUG. and I dont have any confirmation yet.. Dam Nokia.. the website is misleading.. They should put pending dilivery lol lol....
10/6/2010 - still no Nokia email that my pre-order N8 has shipped. I live in USA.
NokiaUSA.com shows this:
The new Nokia N8 Shipping This Week! Dark grey shipping next week! Pre-orders on all colors begin 10/8/2010.
I know Nokia USA customer service is tired of me calling for an update.
I called today and now they are saying: "You will receive your N8 sometime this month".
Not bashing Nokia, just relaying info to everyone.
Have a blessed day! :O)
This is the best smartphone and with 96% it have the most hits of any smartphone.

[deleted post]I know iphone always lost a signal don't try to cheat other people.
if Nokia Fan like to help Nokia stay in business then please keep buying N* and if the phone is so good then do not compare with iPhone. Enjoy your stat of art N8 phone.
Slam, 06 Oct 2010not good preview GSMArena! some details we need... How slow (speed) is camera UP (gizmodo ... moreA preview is supposed to be a preview, not a review. All those things you just talked about will be talked about in the review.
not good preview GSMArena!
some details we need...
How slow (speed) is camera UP (gizmodo correct?)
We need much UI preview, not camera!
For me, UI is slower than competition (Iphone 4, Wave, Galaxy S etc..)
We need BROWSING and FLASH support and speed benchmark (browse, gaming, multitouch zooming, etc...)
We need video with 3 phones on screen (galaxy or wave, iphone 4, htc)
and live test! (multitouch, UI, speed for internet browsing)
Only ONE point come to INNOVATION!
ZOOM on video!
but... video need LED FLASH for night recording...
If you wanna to make good point for Nokia, please give us CORRECT and MUCH more REVIEW than this preview!
I have to be honest, when it comes to design the Nokia N8 is nowhere near my Satio, the phone should be more rounded around the edges and then it would be more appealing to myself and other fans. All in all this device shines where it counts, under the hood this device will outperform the sexy Satio! Can't wait to get my N8. The king of Smartphones is out and about to take out the "rivals"!
