Symbian OS is supporting flash enabled web sites since 2007 or 2008 (dont know exatly) . and if you compare iphone with it, its not supporting. in ios4, it supports but with additional plugin and works verry slow.
Nokia is producing their phones with multimedia features and i believe that if they hier more developers, they will win the mobile crown.
The features like camera (5mp) was first built by nokia. Now 12mp in N8.
Stereo sound without headphones like in N95.
And now other mobiles are copying it. but still, they havnt reach to specs of Nokia.
The ram in this mobile is 256mb which may be increase in N8's other version like in N95 is 64mb and 8G is 128mb.
This mobile + n95/n82/n93/n900 uses both, 3d and open gl where iphone uses only opengl. SO, graphics can be made better on these mobiles if developers work on it.

Anonymous, 23 Sep 2010Nokia is known for it's LACK of stability in it's OS, n95, n96, n85, n86 n97 +mini all needed ... morenot fact. some people prefer symbian3. ok it hasnt got as many apps but i dont buy a phone just for apps. let me guess you gota htc or i phone wich have got a lot of draw backs and for the price tag of the 4 it just doesnt deliver for me. the specs on the n8 are shaping up to be 1 ov the best on the market if nokia wanted to make it identical to a htc or a 4 im shore they would with all there money seen has they have been leading the market for years and there is plenty more to come. peace
niclau0429, 23 Sep 2010nice specs, just the ram is too little 256ram. should make it around 512ram or more like the h... moreIt supports writeable data paging so there would most likely be no difference. In other news, went to see myself that how does NFS:Shift run on N8 and it ran close to perfection.
nice specs, just the ram is too little 256ram. should make it around 512ram or more like the htc desire will be great. will help to smooth out the web browsing as well.
I have a feeling that next symboan flagship next year wont havr a camera better than n8. Meego
So it is worth the wait

nokia user, 23 Sep 2010Hello,
For the first time in India get a preview of the hotly anticipated Nokia N8. Come se... moreHi is this open to all event ??
As at the first page there is a list of attendees
Pratim Roy, 23 Sep 2010Hi, Just to shed some light regardign Nokia Vs IPhone... Nokia has been manufacturing smartpho... moreNokia is known for it's LACK of stability in it's OS, n95, n96, n85, n86 n97 +mini all needed several firmware updates just so they would work As intended, and this was after they were put into the hands of customers. Just because they have been leading the mobile market in the past does not mean they will do so in the future. Sadly it's all about apps these days and developers make apps that will make them money, and symbian is not the place for them, which is why android has grown so much so fast. Apple will have amvery hard fight if they don't lift restrictions from there phones, as for nokia, I don't see symbian 3 doing for them, it came out way too late and the software specs are not worth the price tag. We'll see what symbian 4 and meego bring, but if they don't get developers on there side soon they will lose the top spot within 2-3 years to android, provided they keep there momentum.

This phone is 2007.
Come on this thing should have came out before the N95 as the spec is lower and they are now 9 months late in releasing.
HTC/SAMSUNG is the way forward
