The shipping date of Nokia N8 announced by Nokia..
Wheez, 27 Sep 2010I don't know the real reasons behind the delay plus it doesn't seem to be everywhere, Finnish ... moreIt would have been really commendable if nokia had accepted the delay to make some final amends. It shows that they are not pushing out half baked product to get sales numbers. Though they are now also doing the same but due to their this statement that phone has not delayed, which is false, makes the whole thing dirty..
I am still using n95 because I believed in nokia but they are doing all wrong here.

They just seem abit scared of releasing it with even minor bugs after N97, although I still blame these delays mainly on not having the capability of make them enough to meet the demand at the moment.
Also, they havn't missed a single deadline they've set so far. Although if the delays are true, then they will cross a deadline, but at this point, they arn't late yet.
However the delay(s) still seel regional to me.
Dwane, 27 Sep 2010Where is your source for it being delayed until November now?I am in uk, a friend has had it on order for months and he has been emailed to advise.
Its maybe not 100% true or maybe he ordered later than some others but end of the day I have always like nokia phone having and still have the N95 which is still a great phone but everyone must stop kidding themselves on and start to realise this phone must have some MAJOR MAJOR defects the amount of time it has been pulled off the market and delayed.
Ryan , 27 Sep 2010Delayed now until 22November
Well done to Nokia for making another fine mess of what coul... moreThe rating has nothing to with reality anyways, people who like the phone vote 10 10 10 and the haters put 1 1 1. Not to mention 95% of the voters have probably never even seen the phone with their own eyes let alone used one.
As for being outdated, well, its pretty even in benchmarks with other current phones so it's hardly outdated even in few months time. Mobile phones still arn't who gets the biggest specs in cos the battery life limits it so much.
This is really no different from iPhone 4, for non-preorderers it was "delayed" several months before they could get one. Somehow though no one minds it in iPhones case but when it's N8 it's all "AMG NOKIA SUCKS!".
Delayed now until 22November
Well done to Nokia for making another fine mess of what could have been a good phone if it was release 9 months when it should have been.
Average scores 7.7 tells you all you need to know about how people feel about Nokia with yet another disaster attempt to take back % of the market with an outdate phone
i had an interesting observation about the rating of N8 ;).
when there where 1Lakh votes, rating where approximately 8.4 for all.
But now after 1.11Lakh votes , rating is 7.7.
total point count after 100000 votes = 840000
total point count after 111197 votes = 856216
Difference in votes for 11197 = 16216
Effective rating given in the last 11197 votes = 1.44
so clearly somebody is giving rating 1 for all regularly.
( I obserevd the same when rating came down to 8.6 from 9.2 )
Nuwan, 27 Sep 2010Dear Wheez,
Thank you so much for your kind reply... First I was wondering why you were tal... moreI can see your reasons for preferring the C6-01 over the N8 as you will get a better screen.
However you will lose the following:
A thinner phone
A bigger screen for web browsing etc
The 16gb of internal storage
A better camera (I know the c6-01 camera is still good)
Threaded view sms (going off gsmarena spec sheet)
I looked into this as you almost convinced me
I don't know the real reasons behind the delay plus it doesn't seem to be everywhere, Finnish customers still havnt received any email like that.
But why do people always expect the worst? Why does this delay has to be lying instead of maybe them really finding something that they need/want to fix before releasing the product?
Anonymous, 27 Sep 2010Who made the schedule..? you or Nokia..? Nokia clearly said it will be released third quarter ... morewell, september is the last month of q3, october means q4, so yeah, stop making a fool of yourself. ^_^
sharaku, 27 Sep 2010ive got some dumb questions guys, hope someone will answer them. First, will the n8 run all th... moreYou won't need a plastic protector on your N8 as it has got Gorilla Glass so it will be very hard to scratch anyway.
Research gorilla glass in youtube to see how tough it is
Wheez, 27 Sep 2010Thank you for your kind words, and what you describe there is the way I try to write here: I d... moreDear Wheez,
Thank you so much for your kind reply... First I was wondering why you were talking about a lack of SD slot because C6-01 and C7 both having one.. But later you've corrected that thing..
Actually I'm beginning to like C6-01 over N8 just because it's look.. First the build qualities of N8 and C6-01 are very different from each other but definitely they both have great built qualities... N8 has an aluminum casing while C6-01 has stain less steel finish (not only a frame... the videos show that the whole phone is stainless steel...) Only thing is, that steel has made C6-01 is heavier compared to its size...
One thing more brother... I've got 5530 myself and my sister uses 5800... Both mobiles have same resolution and colors... (Though there is a small color tone difference... 5800 colors are bit bluish while 5530 colors are bit yellowish) That's not the case... The difference between same 640 X 360 resolution on both mobiles is noticeable... In other words, 640 X 360 on 2.9 smaller screen (5530) looks very cool rather than it's on large 3.2 screen.. (5800) Specially my sister always complains the same photo looks very crisper on 5530 screen than her 5800 screen...! (and I have to agree with her... happily for sure...!)
N8 and C6-01 both have the same resolution.. But N8 has it on a bigger screen and C6-01 has it in a smaller screen... So I'm pretty sure what that means for me... C6-01 will definitely look better for me... (One thing more.. I don't need my mobile to have a huge display either... I hate apple phones just because they are big.. I just want a mobile which can only be operated by my thumb... Only that.. Not both hands...)
and what you said about NCB display makes me very happy now... Because I'm from Sri Lanka which is a tropical country located directly under sun... We face huge problems in viewing our touch screen displays at noon... I always had to cover the screen by my palm or go to a shelter in order to see the things..! So Nokia clear black display definitely will bring me a big hope now...!
Note: actually in one blog I saw a comparison of screens of N8 and C6-01 just to illustrate the difference in Nokia clear black display.. and that was very very noticeable... It's not just an amoled screen I'm afraid... It's almost same like so called Samsung Super Amoled and may be even better... (Some people have argued that NCBD is better than Apple's Retina even...)
After all C6-01's length and width dimensions are perfect... Though I hate about the thickness..! Come on Nokia... You've placed just a 1050 mah battery but still couldn't make the phone thinner than that..? (That's just ridiculous...!)
After reading your comments and all, I'm now dreaming about C6-01... However one thing more to come... Music Quality... I have to wait until GSMarena does their Music Quality tests and give us the graphs to compare...
Thank you again my friend... We'll see each other in this forum often... I suppose... Keep in touch brother..
Anonymous, 27 Sep 2010Who made the schedule..? you or Nokia..? Nokia clearly said it will be released third quarter ... moreActually End of September is the limit to meet the 3rd quarter of 2010 schedule

Ankur, 27 Sep 2010Nokia N8 is delayed by 3 weeks. I would not have had any problem had Nokia relieved the truth.... moreWho made the schedule..? you or Nokia..? Nokia clearly said it will be released third quarter 2010, never said by end of September. Stop make a fool of your self ok.
