Wheez, 29 Sep 2010While it may be slightly outdated when it comes to todays hot specs, but featurewise it still ... moreScrew specs. This is not a race between desktop PCs that your processor speed matters. iOS, Android and Symbian are totally different from each other in design and hardware used.
Symbian has been around for close to 10 years, and has been designed to work with low processors/hardware.
As long as the phone is quick and responsive and doesn't run out of memory, who cares about the processor speed? It's not like you're going to perform
floating point math calculations on it.
I have a 2007 era N82, with a 333 MHz processor,a dedicated OpenGL ES graphics processor and 128 MB RAM, with about 90 MB available on boot up.
To date I've never faced an out of memory issue, and my phone runs pretty decently fast and can run NFS Underground and other games that were designed for it.
Tomorrow is the deadline for Q3.They promised they will release it till then.bull$hit...it's a shame...

If you don't hold it in your hand, then theres some grounding related issue and it works quite badly ie. if you have it on the table and just try to multitouch it there. But at least when it's in your hand, I can't say a single bad word about it.
While it may be slightly outdated when it comes to todays hot specs, but featurewise it still goes unrivaled. Either way, in Benchmarks it can still hold it's pride very very well against devices like iPhone 4 or Galaxy S, why arn't they outdated? Nokia has never really been battling this war with monster specs anyways. It's not like they wouldnt be able to put a 1Ghz CPU if they wanted to, but they have more than enough reasons to not do that.
Just look at like EVO 4G. That thing is a frigging beast... with a battery life of 4-5 hours. Why would Nokia want to make a mobile phone like that? Todays mobile business is still ALL about tradeoffs. It's nothing like computers where you can get endless amounts of power from the outlet to run whatever u put into that damn box.
Mobile phones are different. I don't know about you guys, but if you are looking for handheld computers that require 2-3 chargings a day, just do everybody a favor and buy some kick ass monsterspec HTC or something.
I think the Nokia N8 is hands down the best balanced smartphone currently out there/announced. Also in my eyes it's also the prettiest by design and materials and I don't mind waiting a week or two longer, especially since my old phone still works. For the record, I've used Nokias the last 10 years or so and I've only changed to a newer model when I got one from someone or lately I've been changing every 2 years for the sake of it. I've never managed to break a Nokia.
I'm very satisfied with Nokia and I have no intentions or needs to change that.
I have friend who working for nokia and he told me that they working on multitouch because multitouch sucks :S
Whats the use of ROM in mobile phones...in computers its used to store BIOS the bootup firmware...

I cant wait now.i m looking forward for galaxy,satio or x10.i m very disappointed.nokia u really dont care abt us.
Global launch of Nokia n8 has been delayed.. as of now official launch date is October 15th, for some last minute tweaks???????
My advice to all loyal Nokia fans out there,
I think Nokia is going to repeat n97, n96 experience with this device.
[deleted post]We cant say anything.its really bad time for nokia.nokia already replaced the ceo of the company.nokia losing their share market very badly.i hope eveything will b 5n in future
The raeson why the N8 is delayed I think is due too some rich MOFO'S probably like preordering like 20 or more units and reselling them at at later date cause the demand will be great....
