N8 will be epic fail when every high end phone are 1Ghz 512 ram and mid ranges are 680MHz and 256ram. Nokia charge high end price for mid range phone with just because of 12mp camera
I have seen original demo N8 in Soundtech in Cyprus. Come on Nokia, start shipping, please. The amazing is that they have in stock various original accessories. Once the N8 start selling, all those colorful original cases will be selling like hot potatoes.

Anonymous, 23 Sep 2010It's not yet delivered..., any chance to use clear black display - let say for upgrade version... moreThe CBD is very unlikely to come to N8, after all it's a whole different screen and I doubt they would upgrade later manufactured phones with them, they'll probably just put em into E7 and C7 or whatever they said they'll put it in.
It's a shame cos it looks pretty nice and all, but personally I'm not that sad about it, I understood CBD works better sunlight, but other than that I'm personally very happy with the current AMOLED too.

Apple (and pretty much every other manufacturer) is just free riding on the research and development Nokia has done during the last 40 years or so.
Also, Nokia had real videocalling like 5 years ago, iPhone got it like what, this year and it requires wifi to work, unlike Nokias videocalling 5 years ago that worked on normal telephone connections? I dunno about the software, but Nokia has done the whole videocalling thing before and better.

Iphone was not first smartphone but makes browsing on the smartphone possible by capacitive. Why everyone starts using capacitive now including nokia when they traditionally use resistive. Why everyone copy iphone coverflow and multitouch?? Why everyone wants to be an iphone killer which simply shows iphone is a benchmark for smartphone. Why nobody create a videocalling sotfware as good as iphone 4 when they introduced videocalling??

iPhone can actually use it's GPU to rendering the UI though, Android cant, so thumbs up for iPhone on that :D Or more like thumbs down for Android on that, it seems like an obvious feature.
Not related to your comment, but here are some benchmark comparisons between the popular devices and the N8:

[deleted post]What makes it a bad phone? The CPU is lower than others but compensated by a dedicated GPU which others dont have, it's cheaper than the iPhone, for example. Have you tried the Symbian^3 to know it's bad? It's features still beat Android and iOS quite easily, it looks the same but it's a new OS comapred to 5th edition. Design is a matter of preference, I love the looks of N8 and like it alot more than iPhone or any Samsung/HTC. The display is said to be amongst the best on the market and considering Super AMOLED is not an option for non-Samsungs, not much else to hope for. Can't comment on sound but whats wrong with video?
It's simply maybe the best balanced phone out there. It has the camera niche, but it's very balanced in every other aspect too
LoL am I the only one in here using Rands?? (South African N8 Fanatic!) i wana kn0w How much is MTN gonna sell it for
Nokia N8 - The "King" model of Nokia ! Superb, excellent, fantastic, amazing from Nokia first time.

A recent video of the same N8 I've been using nearly daily at the local flagshipstore.

But personally, the iPhones hold like zero value for me cos I don't really appreciate UI and smoothness in a cellphone. Well I do, but it's so low in the priority that it doesnt make or break the deal for me.
wow i dont know if anyone has notice this...but is the trend changed??? who really carries a huge square phone in their pocket anyway....thats pretty dumb. i thought we loved small and compact phone thats why it was call..MOBILE phone...

while in the other world these features were introduced by nokia since long time .
but this is what is called a successful marketing and brain washing done by apple and helped by the media and the support of the national products by the Americans,don't forget to mention the failure of nokia and other companies to introduce a real competitor to the iphone till recently .
although iOS has many restrictions but no one can deny that iOS is a very nice OS that is faster and more eye candy than the symbain.
