[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

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.
[deleted post]Just a shame that iOS has nothing on Symbian when it comes to features. Funny how developed country such as USA prefers alot more primitive OS.
The difference between a resistive screen and a capacitive screen is like frigging huge. I'll certainly never buy a device with a resistive touch screen after trying the N8s capacitive.

It's true Bro, I read it in www.nokia.co.id. If We have Citibank CC We can preorder it from 20 sept till 10 Okt 2010 in 4.950.000 IDR plus bluetooth headset and HDMI set. Wait for one or two more month and the price could be decrease...
Doesn't it a great...???

It's E7 that will compete with bb 9800 as the flagship phones of both brands, as people in our country are still in love with hardware qwerty keyboard.
Hello Every One
I have checked with Dubai Mall People...they said that all the pre orders will be delivered in the end of October....i dont know why this nokia is doing so late....lauched in Nokia world and now so late.....But for me i will wait for N8....

Love N8, all BB are so dull compared to it, even the newest Torch... Are u serious that N8 preorder in our country only IDR 5.000.000? The useless BB Torch is 6.200.000! How can N8 cheaper than that?
[deleted post]write meaningful posts not "x is better than this" these kind of posts gets deleted usually by mods.
Just recieved a email from the Carphone Warehouses sites an they have told me a pre-order is available an should be made available to get the N8 on the 22nd October,so its way to late for a mobile we first saw in April ,Whats happened with the N8 makes me think that Nokia are not up to date an glad the big Shake-Up is Happening or they will never advance in the mobile market but move Backwards

also, nokia hasnt been leading the way for a few years now. ever since the iphone came out in 2007 they have dropped the ball completely. everyone else is on the touchscreen/multi-touch route, smoothness, great UI ect, and nokia kinda just stayed in its own little world. the touch screens they have now are nothing compared to the competition, and the n8 is behind the times in the spec list (minus the camera, and usb otg) for 565 USD on launch, that is WAY too much for a device like this, no matter how you look at it.
the small battery doesnt help much either, you can argue that its OS has better battery management than other OS but it doesnt change the fact that its a 3.5" touch screen, that it will be used to web browsing, and music, and camera and as an actual phone. 1200mil battery just doesnt cut it for high end phones unless the user intends to be rather casual with the device.
and lets not forget that it will take a few firmware updates for this phone to run like its supposed to, though i would like to be proven wrong there by nokia but given there current trend i dont see that happening.
