I think Nokia should develop Maemo as a main choice for all Nokia's operating system. N900 has proved it self as a qualified & guaranted handset. I've used it & it's very ok. But I agree if Nokia must upgrade their battery capacity so their handset will be more mobile. At least 1500 mAh for smartphone & more is better.
It's not 'spec' that makes Nokia phone good, it's how it does it's main purpose. Right now I am using HTC HD2 and am very disapointed with it. Yeah it has office and htc sence that really is very good, but winmo is sooooo disabling the user. There is no way to cut the internet connetion so that just forced me to order an internet plan... And there are many other thing that bug me and disables the phone being a phone...
planning to buy a new phone which but now confused...which one to buy....iphone4 or nokia n8.........plz help me frnds............

Actually many applehaters sayed it has too slow specs because they never seen it in use, just look specs like nokiafans do.
but yes iphone 3gs is actually very capable and everything runs very smoothly, wonder why no-one saying its slow ;), because it's NOT

I am certainly not questioning your right to like something without having to explain it, its your preference of course. :) But just curious, did you use the Maemo browser on N900 ? Or firefox ?
And, is there a new browser on N8 afterall ?
guest, 16 Sep 2010"but do you think the average user of this phone will actually use the features that you ... moreBut sadly, it's not the future yet. As much as wireless technology sounds interesting, it's yet to be implemented. And most of us, excluding you and maybe some people who think and sound as capable as you, don't have the compatible technology to stream wirelessly. The use of cables, however is more popular around the globe. I think it's more convenient to have a device that can connect/synchronise universally. On the most remote of places, at the most desperate times, without a laptop or any advance technological environment to reach for, only then you will realise how a person who are less inside their home feels when their high paid device can't do anything on the situation than make calls, and update your facebook status to tell your friends you'll be damned just for the heck of it. It's all about utilising any almost omnipresent technological resources at it's best and taking advantage. Nokia is doing it so far, with the introduction of usb otg.
Did i miss some feature as useful that can be found on other phones? You can tell me.

The N8 isnt way ahead in specs, but when u take it all into consideration, the N8 could be the best balanced smartphone. It depends on what u emphasis, but for me it hands down is. Some people may include features in ''specs''

Like screen? like cpu? like memory?
Why all the nokiafans accidentally dont mention those stuff? they list specs like hdmi, usb otg etc. what most of people dont do anything.
but they never list those first things, wonder why ;)
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2010which OS does it have? Windows or linux?Neither, Symbian3
I think the resolution is close to perfection on N8s 3.5'' sreen. I cant atleast figure it being more enjoyable. I just browsed the web first with N900 then with N8. Taking everything into consideration, i was personally alot more comfortable with the N8.
This is the most highly spec phone in the market. This is one reason it got delayed as a new product needs verification. look at Iphone 4, they released without verifying that the antennas doesnt work properly. The Symbian is less advanced in UI compared to Iphone, but then all other specs are way ahead.

N97 was promised to be so perfect with great specs, but the then "renewed" Symbian was a big disappointment and Nokia have not learned anything because their battery is still so small that the mobile phone is not really "mobile" at all.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 20101mhz??????? Lol Its not about all about processor clock rate but how the OS uses it. Symbian3... moreSymbian is NOT faster than Android, but the very low screenresolution on N8 makes it easier to hide the fact that it has a slower processor because small resolution meens the processor does not need to work fast, but this small resolution makes the phone hard to use for the cusomers and is definetly not ok for a top of the line smartphone/multimediaphone today 2010.
