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...

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.
is this phone is any good i want to buy it did any body bought this phone yet at the moment i am using iphone 3gs??
[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"!
Are we forgetting that the N8 is DVB-H enabled via those other earph0nes??
Key Reas0ns why I want this ph0ne:
1. USB OTG feature
2. Accelerometer w0rks everywhere, homescreens, menus, etc.
3. U cn watch LIVE TV via the headsets enabling DVB-H
4. It supports HDMI-out. Rare feature.
5. Free Maps
6. Oh yAh and that 12Mpx u cn brag abt to ur friends (",)
I see Symbian as being Man Utd. iOS, Android, the Man Citys and Chelseas of Operating Systems have j0ined in on the party but Manchester United still reigns supreme!
PS - d0n't get it twisted... I'm a Liverpo0l supporter!
Anonymous, 06 Oct 2010I am not a fan of Samsung but I am fan of technology and I believe AMOLED is better than LC... moreAgree. The Samsung Galaxy S has the best looking screen.I had the phone but i had to change phone since the phone was slow, freeze sometimes or restart. But the screen was the best.
I am not a fan of Samsung but I am fan of technology and I believe
AMOLED is better than LCD
SuperAMOLED is better than AMOLED.
This is confirmed by G S M A R EN A Preview itself
However it is hardly a match for the SuperAMOLED screens on the Samsung Galaxy S lineup and the Samsung S8500 Wave.
[deleted post]Wow, that is shallow. Lets see some proof people. For instance,
GSM Arena tests the camera, it is the best one ever.
Browser is not so good, but Opera on N8 is faster than iPhone browser. (yes)
N8 coverflow is faster than iPhone, see here:
Now these comparisons are useless, I mean it all up to individual usage, but there are too many anti nokia people here that talk bs. Watch the link above.
