The problem with DLNA is that most HDTVs at the moment don't have it. Plus the DLNA has it's problems not working correctly.
On the other hand, practically every HDTV has a HDMI connector. And HDMI is not prone to problems like DLNA. HDMI works.

Dwane, 16 Sep 2010Well this is mainly what I said.
Great phone and great features and I am going to get one r... more@Dwane
u r right at some points but let me till u sometin.
Over a trip when u shoot some videos and images u sure gonna fill ur 16gb in 3 days ... u dont carry ur laptop over ur back .. i could carry a USB cable on the go better and lighter and get my flash memory 64gb and move the files ! why to buy expensive 32GB class 6 when i've got always my flash memory stick !
when i return to my hotel or mates i will show off my videos on the HD LCD big screen mostly all ppl buy LCDs nowadays !
am at home Downloaded a new HD movie just transfere to ur fone and then to ur HD LCD then u watch it ! no need to have a portable HD DVD player
U could put the cable in ur car at office anywhere then connect and done.
Sure if its wireless is better but not al LCD got this feature.
Am going to a big trip after a while ...instead of taking a camcoder and laptop bag and ipod and wires all those heavy stuff that takes lots of space .. i'll just take my N8 + 2 cables and a charger !! Thank You Nokia :D :D :D

iPhone 4, galaxy s, most of the HTCs, SE X10, wave... etc.

Will you actually carry a cable with you everywhere so you can actually take advantage of the USB 'on the go' or HDMI out at the time you need to without planning to?"
Its funny always talk about those, because most of people dont do anything with those. for me i dont want to always carry cables if i should need them.
I think when you really need those then they are at home and not there where you need them.
wireless things are future, im very interesting about wp7 lg phone can stream pics and videos to tv without cable, thats looks/sounds great! new htc desire HD having that too
FUTURE IS WIRELESS!
i need next device2b same features expet for 1gb rom 1gb ram wvga at least 1500 battry at least 1gb processor at least and full flash support plus full video formats support.
phones fan, 16 Sep 2010the 50 hrs of music play back are in the offline mode.
the broadcom gpu produces 32M triangle... moreThe 90 Mio Triangles per s are CPU+GpU (galaxy s) !!!
The N8s GPU only is 32 Mio. triangles per s !
Well this is mainly what I said.
Great phone and great features and I am going to get one regardless.
I just wanted to hear your thoughts on these points
Its not a gamers phone (compared to say the iphone) as people getting this phone are probably not hardcore gamers, but do you think the average user of this phone will actually use the features that you and myself brag about?
Will you actually carry a cable with you everywhere so you can actually take advantage of the USB 'on the go' or HDMI out at the time you need to without planning to?
Do you really need 12mp camera over a 5mp camera? I think most people just look at the their pictures just on the phone or maybe on a pc where they would hardly tell the difference.
Are you gonna notice the speed difference of bluetooth 3 over 2.1? especially as you need to connect to another bt3 device to get that speed
the FM transmitter, free sat nav and great build quality are probably the gonna be the most noticed difference to most peoples upgrade don't you think?
These are all questions I get from my friends who think I'm stupid waiting so long for this phone when other good phones are already out so wanted pass some of these opinions to the forum so I can be reassured that i'm not giving this phone too much credit
I asked NPD here in Hyderabad, India, he said me that N8 launch has been delayed by 3 weeks, when i asked him more, he told me that he got this info directly from Nokia base office in Delhi.
Wheez, 16 Sep 2010You are forgetting the dedicated GPU that your phone, whatever you are comparing the N8 to, la... moreIt would be a very balanced phone if it was not from Symbian of course.
And by the way... this was supposed to be Nokia's top of the line. They failed yet again to enter the top phone market.
Let's just hope they finish their Meego, it will maybe bring them back in the smartphone market.
[deleted post]You are forgetting the dedicated GPU that your phone, whatever you are comparing the N8 to, lacks.
Also, what's poor about the screen? Super AMOLEDs arnt supplied to anyone but Samsung cos they manufacture them, so that's not an option.
Resolution could be bigger, but personally I think it fits the 3,5" screen very well, and it would even look off it was bigger reso. If 3½" makes a screen poor, why not get a 50" TV right away, it's surely better than ur 4" or whatever ur device has.
Get real, get ur facts straight. This phone is probably the best balanced phone out there.
