Anonymous, 11 Sep 2010.....and N8 will never be a killer phone with application from OVI store.You are probably right, the diversity of applications will most likely not overtake that of the iPhones, but if you think thats all smartphones are about, it's probably the best that you stick with an iPhone, you might be confused at the possibilities.
.....and N8 will never be a killer phone with application from OVI store.
Dont expect too mocu from Nokia. They add in this and that. The interface is just like the C series except for some enhancement here and there.
Will launch in Singapore on 24 Sep 10 , coincise with the F1 and exclusive to Singtel. The price without contract is $690/-
As I said dont expect much from this N8.
I just h0pe the Blue and Orange devices aren't left behind and are shipped d0wn to South Afria!
AMANITA, 11 Sep 2010Why r the people thinking to kill iphone ? :D We dont need an iphone killer coz iphone already kill em self. Now we need a real smartphone,not a killer this or that.
hi all,if aircrack can be ported to n8,the n8 will be iphone killer,otherwise iphone will boast when it comes to wifi access.
Sujay u n, 11 Sep 2010Everything is good but U cud hav increased dis OS-Android OS, v2.1 (Eclair) Size - 480 x 8... moreSujay, its simple. Go and get an android device. Nobody is pressurizing into buying anything mate.
AMANITA, 11 Sep 2010Why r the people thinking to kill iphone ? :D Because they are jealous.

And it may not even be because of Business mate. You should know the speed at which cellphones are being manufactured today.
The thing you mentioned about Amoleds at least is surely because of that. The demand for Amoleds have by far exceeded the supply. Compare to that, SAmoled is a brand new technology and it may be a while till they develop facilities which are ample enough to supply them to others without suffering. :)
Because it is fairly simple that they will have to supply to whoever demands when they start supplying. They have relations with many companies and they can get bad if Samsung supplies to one and not to the others.
It is already putting in the works for the Amoled shortage. :)

So its not really to do even with business but just pure abilities to meet the extensive demand.
@Tpc : If I get one, it will have to be the silver/dark grey one. Blue looks good, but a bit feminine I think. :D

Just imagine if nokia started doing the same thing then ever phone available will be without an antenna as nokia is the first company to patent and implement the intenna technology.

then its not N9, its E7!!
If you already know that then I would like to see the phone you were referring to as N9
Tiranoid, 10 Sep 2010It runs Meego OS in addition to its symbi 3this phone does not run meego.
By the way, does anyone know when this will be launched ? 1st week of October is it ?
@Wheez : Never got to check it out. Went to a few Nokia stores but they didn't have it :(

Mac, 11 Sep 2010It should hav been super amoled to combat iphone's retina display...I believe for now super amoled is samsung-only, as i believe only they manufacture them. However, N8s screen has been said to be amongst the best on the market for both the picture and the touch. Cant make any real comparisons myself, though
Mac, 11 Sep 2010It should hav been super amoled to combat iphone's retina display...Yeah that would have been a bonus but samsung is so wicked. AMOLED is manufactured and supplied by samsung to other mobile manufacturers. but they have become so greedy that they stopped providing even AMOLED displays to other manufacturers not to mention SAMOLED is way out of the question. This being the key selling point on their phones.
