I'm quite impressed at how Nokia is so confident with the N8, I sure hope it does become a great phone as I'm planning to buy one. I'm just wondering though why most manufacturers jumped to 720p video recording so fast without offering some fun and fancy video recording features such as Slow-mo and Time-lapse which is offered mostly by Samsung and LG? Maybe its me alone who likes those features but is it really harder/expensive to make Slow-mo and Time-lapse video encoding than 720p? Before you know it, they'll wanna make a 1080p video recording phone when they won't even provide slow-mo video encoding in VGA@120fps or better...
FINALY , the N8 is out ! My preorder has been posted a hour or so ago. Should be here by tomorrow. How sweet. Tippical Nokia. Wait until the last day of the quarter. I guess no one can now say Nokia was late. But they were definitely not early either :-) I will check it out over the weekend end post a review on Monday.

Games is the best selling point nowadays
dumb people need games, and nokia needs dumb people to maintain their market share
i hope there are decent mobile games based in qt coming to n8, so dumb people will not depend so much on apple phone for gaming.
Wheez, 30 Sep 2010Yasir here is correct. The modern batteries don't mind even if u charge em just abit at times,... moreyeh man.u should take care that.and why not,after a logn time waiting and fighting for n8 with andriod and ios,at last we got it.show that to whole world
yasir.pakistan, 30 Sep 2010he is rite man.it means after 3 charges of battery.u get the full timing.charge it 3 or 4 hour... moreYasir here is correct. The modern batteries don't mind even if u charge em just abit at times, but when doing the first rechargings it will help the battery calibrate it's max capacity for it's lifespan.
So a sloppy first recharging might take alot of battery life away especially at the later part of its lifespan.
And I rather be save than sorry myself, even if I was more or less wrong :D
Mac, 30 Sep 2010Screw everybody else! They can go to android or wp7 like sheep. They will just come back to sy... moreyour are just very right, well done. yes in the end they will defently want symbian back, after this astonishing symbian 3^ has just came on the market and also this lovely phone, which to me is much better then the iphone 4 by miles

Ironically, I'll be filming the video with a worse camera than the N8s -_-
Sunny, 30 Sep 2010Congrtts :):) Eagrly waiting for ur Full Review --- Minimum 20 mnts this time :D Showi... moreThere are plenty of unboxing videos and videos that show the exteriors of the device so I thought about skipping that and focusing on showing around the release firm/software.
I got myself the blue one. It is REALLY amazing. The build quality is just really nice. It feels very solid and weights just enouh to feel really sturdy without being too heavy.
Sadly I still have this lesson to go and I can't charge this thing here so I can't play around with it that much yet. Nokia usually supplies the batteries only loaded for like 40% or so. And since the first few charges can be the crucial ones for the batteries overall lifespan, I don't wanna charge it like hour here, hour there.
What I really like about the AMOLED screens in general is the fact that you can have the time and date as a screensaver. LED backlit screens couldnt really do that cos it would've taken huge amounts of battery due to the backlight.
I already turned off Flash from the browser, cos I realized that 99% of the time its just adverts I don't even wanna see. Don't get me wrong, I rather have to option than not have it, but the browsing becomes alot faster especially here on GSMarena since there are loads of flash ads. Maybe some sort of ad blocking app will come at some point (or may be it has it baseline but havnt had the time to check yet) so you can have flash on without having to waste it to the flash adverts.
