SHAZ, 01 Oct 2010Guys i live in India and iam presently using N85.Iam planning to pre-order an N8 2mrw,b4 that ... moredude.. demo pieces are available in India now.
you can try it and decide.
* touch response is fast and i cant distinguish between iPhone 4 and N8
* tried browsing for some 5 minutes and browsing experience is as good as N900
* camera is awesome
only thing is that the phone is little curvy at the corners which may not be liked by all ;)
i already preordered it, price 25K and 2K for preordering.
phone will be delivered from oct 16
Wheez, 01 Oct 2010Few more pics from the same batch, couldn't post em all at once cos GSMArena was complaining a... moreImpressive photo taken with n8!
Does the swype beta work on n8?
Does the new beta ovi maps support multitouch?
Does it work with usb mouse?
Does it the screen resolution fine with the n8 screen size?
Does the plastic top and bottom end is with shiny surface?
How is the battery

It looks the same, but it has been redone for touch screen devices, the biggest things in common it has to the S60 5th edition is the name Symbian and the buttons. That's about it.
I rather keep my Symbian^3, thank you. I'm liking it alot.

meego ux head is the guy who worked for palm pre webos
symbian 3 is still great because we can it cansupport qt apps and games which works with s4 and meego
Few more pics from the same batch, couldn't post em all at once cos GSMArena was complaining about spam protection:
Took some more pics, this time in a bit darker environment. Remember that I still suck at taking photos and I had default settings, but this time 12mpix instead of 9mpix.
Someone was wanting my opinion about whether to not get N8 or not and I get happier every hour for buying this when I find new cool stuff it can do. Worth every penny.
I have had many nokia's in the the past and all of them were great. The thing that nokia needs to do is change the os (they should of got palm before hp). iOS, android, palm os and windows 7 mobile are all good os; symbian is out dated! Eye candy (and apps) is everything now, even Rim plans to change their os to the play book's (that's their new tablet). Nokia doesn't need android but something Fu@king close, YOU CANT HAVE A OS THAT CAN BE USED ON A NON-TOUCH SCREEN!!!!
As of now iPhone 4 is king not because of the hardware or software, but it's easy to use and apps. If you think I'm wrong, tell me 3 reason why. To be the king you have to beat the current king and only android is putting up a fight for now.
Maybe next will be better for nokia, I hope so.
Guys i live in India and iam presently using N85.Iam planning to pre-order an N8 2mrw,b4 that i wanna confirm wether its really worth buying an N8?Like does it have any drawbacks....i want a frank opinion.Wheez....i value your opinion the most...so plz do give me a reply.I dont want to get disappointed after getting the phone.
Nokia n8 is well designed and with a very good price, it worth every cent , you cant expect more decent games tocome
i will be surprised if it not sells well:)
The Hydra, 01 Oct 2010Hmm.. I checked DLNA,ORG.. It has N85 but not N8... As well as the spec list in forum-nokia,... moreMy Tv doesn't support either DLNA or HDMI, so it doesn't matter to me :D. New gen LCD/LED HDTVs support both. I think wave can play HD quality videos on such TVs with DLNA. So HDMI or DLNA doesn't matter as long as you have either.

As well as the spec list in forum-nokia,com did not mention anything about UPnP/DLNA in N8 while my N85 does.
But it seem weird. Why will Nokia remove this feature?
Maybe we should wait someone for conform this?

Mark, 01 Oct 2010Nice overview. Still, some remarks:
I think you need to roll up cpu, gpu, responsiveness et... moreI just compared hardware specs and since I have no idea about Symbian 3 I just can't give my opinion on that. The processor on wave is better than that on N8 when it comes to speed and graphics. Don't know how the dedicated GPU on N8 would perform against it.
The review on tech radar states that N8's battery lasts for 2 days which is same as the one in wave.
I agree to a certain extent that Samsung support sucks. I have had a tough time with kies, but they're providing updates for firmware and kies on a regular basis,so I hope they continue supporting their flagship BADA phone and platform. BADA is not as bad as it's made out to be. If Samsung supports BADA, then we as users will have wide varieties of OS to choose from. Although it might not become as popular as Andriod or IOS, it definitely has that potential.
No hard feelings, just my opinion.
Gowtham, 01 Oct 2010Can we connect Nokia N8 to a TV other than HDTV and LCD TV? Hey.. The N8 actually support the traditional TV-out method via the 3.5mm audio jack/ video too.. I think it should be the same TV-out as in my N85.. which could support PAL/NTSC TV
I read this some where..
As for Wave noob [2SPQ]
My N85 did support DLNA so I think.. N8 too?
GSMARENA have that spec :
WLAN Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, UPnP technology =D

Mark, 01 Oct 2010Tech radar does not like Symbian. If you like Symbian, like me, this device is a killer.
Well it could be that they are not so objective... That I do not know... But maybe they also have some reasons not to like symbian...
Would you have another source for a review of the N8?
