I'm pretty sure, with the N8's GPU, flash video's and games will be not a problem at all

Savor, 13 Sep 2010If this phone was released for $400 (U.S.) dollars, it would be worth it. But it's only great ... moreYou are entitled to your opinion, but don't expect us to be swayed. Personally though, i can't see any reason for someone like you to be here, even though it's open for all, influencing other people not to buy the "yet unreleased" n8 shows nothing but insecurity. You think it's overpriced? Well, i don't mind paying that much for a device made of aluminum and gorilla glass, and with a carl zeiss optics for snaps. If you don't like it, don't buy it and get the hell out of here. Just the way you speak clearly indicates that you know nothing about n8's true capabilities. Low processor? Do you think we don't know that? 16 Gb? Old symbian Ui? Don't talk as if we can't see the specsheet. So why are we here? Because all of the crap points you are saying doesn't matter that much to us, and doesn't deserve to be pointed out. You even call a mature OS like symbian a dying OS. Well, if your definition of a true OS is the appstore then, you have a lot to know. It's not our basis of choosing a phone anyway. We all know n8 has 680mhz processor, but we also notice it has gpu. Yeah the symbian 3 doesn't give us plenty of transition effects and pretty icons but we hardly need it. N8, however, gave us something more than what other smartphones have to offer. Read the specsheet again, do some research, and maybe you'll learn something else than slow processor, memory, etc. Seriously, that kind of rant grows intolerable day by day.
"TV-out (720p video) via HDMI and composite" ,what that means (and composite)?? did we can use the 3.5 mm audio jack for TV-out like the older N-series?
Matt, 13 Sep 2010So can my Nokia 3109, is that a smartphone then?"A smartphone is a mobile
phone that offers more
advanced computing ability and
connectivity than a
contemporary basic ' feature
phone'. Smartphones and
feature phones may be thought
of as handheld computers
integrated within a mobile
telephone, but while most
feature phones are able to run
applications based on platforms
such as Java ME or BREW,a
smartphone allows the user to
install and run more advanced
applications based on a specific
platform. Smartphones run
COMPLETE OPERATING SYSTEM
software providing a platform for
~wikipedia.com - smartphone
So if your phone doesn't run complete OS, we feel sorry to say it's not a smartphone :( Sorry!
Good way to compare....
I think you guys know nothing about GPU (Not the CPU). This phone has 1 of the largest GPU in the market. This 1 also has a light symbia3. Meaning that it doesnt need 1GHRZ as the android than is heavier. The GPU means that it takes some power of the running app away from the CPU and gives it more power to process the app. Thats why it doesnt need a !GHRZ CPU. It has so big GPU.

You can only play flash games smooth for those without actions like Mafia Wars.
