Wheez, 24 Sep 2010Havn't tried, but I'd guess the sound quality through headphones is most dependant on the head... moreDear Wheez,
I often read your comments and those are really really interesting to read.. I learned many things from you as you always line up things with an unbiased mind... (I mean as possible... Because it's obvious that you like N8.. However you have taken care that you don't spoil your posts because you like this mobile...) So for any person who likes or dislike Nokia N8, there are things to grab from Mr. Wheez's comments..
Well... Back to my point... I also really like this mobile.. Not only because of its extraordinary camera.. But also because of the features like 'USB On the Go' and 'Symbian 3' (Though there are so many Symbian haters here, as a Person who's in love with Symbian, my next mobile will always be another Symbian... That's for sure...)
However after the introduction of the next Symbian 3 mobiles from Nokia (C7 and C6-01) I'm again in a dilemma whether to go for this very expensive N8 or just buy a budget mobile like C6-01... (Actually all I want is a mobile with Great Music Quality, Symbian OS, Decent Camera - it doesn't have to be an extraordinary camera, GPS and high speed 3G with video calling, Decent battery, Pretty sexy look.. Plus, that mobile should be Nokia... Ha ha... My personal preference...)
Only two things I hate about C6-01 are, lesser battery capacity, higher thickness... (it's 13.9 thick... damn it.. The current mobile I'm using is 5530 and it's damn sexy... and it's only 12.9 mm... I hate to move from 12.9 to 13.9 which is kind of backward to me...!)
However the features like USB on the Go, Wifi b/g/n, great Nokia clear black display with AMOLED capacitive screen are turning me on...! Actually C7 has all I want but I don't like its oval shape.. (thickness is great though...)
I want to know more about this 'Nokia clear black display' which N8 doesn't have while C7 and C6-01 have... and do you really think N8 will be that popular specially when buyers have very competitive and considerably cheap alternatives like C7 and C6-01...? I don't think people will be pleased to pay more 200 Dollars just to jump from 8 MP camera to 12 MP camera and for HDMI & aluminum casing...! I want your opinion on above...
One thing more... I have seen Nokia produces a set of mobiles which has almost same hardware configuration with slight changes in design and some features.. (Eg: 5800, C6, X6, 5530, 5230, 5233, N97 all has same processor, same screen resolution, same RAM etc...) Now the same theory applies to N8, C7 and C6-01 too... What do you think as the reason...? Is it just because they (Nokia people) are lazy on new things as so many Samsung fan boys are shouting about...? Or is it because of their own comfort on using the same configuration...? (Even same old housing for 5800, 5230 and 5233 proves this matter...) or else is it after concerning so many facts like software compatibility etc...?
I want your opinion on that too.. (I'm asking you because you're a Finland person and moreover you've worked in a Nokia factory too..)
According to my point of view (No offense please...)
Apple - is for the people who want to show off but really has nothing to be seen... (Specially Rich and uneducated morons...)
Blackberry - is for the People who want others to look at them as professionals but really are not professionals... (I haven't seen a one single real professional who's using a blackberry...!)
Samsung - is for the people who're not looking for durable products and will be satisfactory with a sophisticated featured gadget though it'll not last long..
Nokia - is for EVERYONE ELSE....!
By the way, I'm from Sri Lanka and without any doubt Nokia is the BEST SELLING Mobile here..
Nokia keep on making these out dated phones. It is good you losing market and Nokia can not even get N8 out. Ha ha
I want to buy .100% both phones samsung amazing wave and the king n8
wow!!! Another amazing ability from this amazing phone!
Think Nokia forget how to make smart phones. There were last one with touch screen and then continue re-Packaging 5800 in many models and now N8 is another 5800 with new package and new upgrade software. Now, can not even get outdated N8 out after many months. Nokia nee hire new CEO from Apple, BB or Samsung better than what they got.
Everything says that this is my next phone.
And then Nokia is going to release this phone with qwerty keyboard...
Thats the reason I havent buy any Nokia phone in more than 2 years.
But anyway I love You Nokia!
Nokia transforms any HD tv into Touch Screen:
Nokia should make qwerty and non qwerty meego phones, just like n8 and e7
Anonymous, 27 Sep 2010Mpixel of camera is not everyhing. Ovi store is the reason why n8 will fail. Ovi sucksI know, so does Nokia. Thats why they also put in the biggest sensor ever used in cameraphones and Carl Zeiss optics. Personally id probably use the app store VERY little even if it was the iphone one. Apart from few utility apps they hold no value for me. And for dwane, NDA means non-disclosure agreement.
After spending 10mins to get one app from ovi store, i gave up nokia and now upgraded to iphone 4 from three. couldn;t be happier. Music sounds nicer, ui is very nice, apps store is wow, music store built in (Don't steal music mates) and finally retina display and design of iphone 4 deserve iphone 4 popularity

But at the same time i'm kind of glad! Because 1, I dont want anyone getting it before me! And 2, we need you on the this site updating and defending at least until we get ours too

Wheez, 26 Sep 2010Thanks for copy pasting the full email, I've been asking around whether any finnish customers ... moreSounds like still tweaking/fixing it as why would they put 'for your enjoyment'?
What is 'NDA'? That is limiting what u can say? If you have more info you still have my youtube address dont you?
I've now gone from wifi and am now using my phone so prob wont b replying too much 2nite as this is way too slow
Sort of sadly though, I might've been amongst the first preorderers in the whole world to get their N8, cos I preordered it the same day it became available in Finland. Later on though I cancelled my preorder (14.9.2010) to reserve it from the flagship store cos the preorder wouldve come with home delivery at times I wouldve never been home while my school is 100m away from the flagship store, so with bad luck, I just put myself into the back of the queue and with bad luck it may make the difference of getting it next week or end of october :/
