Me too waiting for this monster ! I love everything abt N8 except that default grass theme :D
Nokia should start 'photography contest' for N8 later,may b next year !

With the dedicated GPU doing hw acceleration, it's equal to having AT LEAST a 1Ghz processor. Got to try one with a recent software yesterday and it really was fast.
I even had to try going to the photo browser and then kinetic scrolling em individually and see how fast it can scroll em and the speed was beyond making any sense :D And it kept the 60 fps or so it has during picture browsing even when I was scrolling em super fast.
I can't frigging wait for this thing :D
I 've sent an email to nokia asking about itz default clock rate ! Anyway, I am sure N8 will b free from lags and It will perform well ! Wait and watch it when it will b released ! Nokia have taken a long time for N8 and I trust that everything will b ok with N8 ! :)
THATS a good mobile...
i dying to buy this mobile... kindly release this mobile soon.......!!!! :)

Press Compare Processors and... moreBut, since we can't find it out for certain unless Nokia tells us which model of ARM 11 it actually is, there's no point argueing about this.
So let's just say it has 680 Mhz processor with dedicated GPU doing half of the work for the CPU.
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2010ARM 11 NOT have 720mhz cpu-s!
Vivaz have same 720 OVER-clocked (default is 600)http://www.arm.com/products/processors/classic/arm11/index.php
Press Compare Processors and scroll down, there
s this "excel" sheet. I'm not sure if it has all ARM 11 family processors, but at least 4 of em. These 4 have the following frequencies.
Frequency * (MHz)
So, there's no "default 600Mhz", but they range from 427 Mhz to 990 Mhz. N8 probably has the one with 770 Mhz and is then underclocked down to 680Mhz.
AMANITA, 10 Sep 2010U r ryt ,default clock rate is 720mhz !ARM 11 NOT have 720mhz cpu-s!

Naresh, 10 Sep 2010 Nice model very good performanse its really very nice when launch ?Last week of september in some places, 1st of October for the rest :D
The first 100 Buyers in each priority store will get free gifts from Nokia. :-)

And for example this is said: It delivers extreme low power and a range of performance from 350 MHz in small area designs up to 1 GHz in speed optimized designs in 45 and 65 nm.
So that makes me think that it's available in different "native mhz", and I think somewhere I heard that the Arm 11 in N8 would be like 800mhz or something, underclocked to 680Mhz.

No offense, but it's easier to believe someone with halfly sophisticated way of typing.
But you could still be right, I've seen ppl say it's overclocked, I've seen people say it's underclocked. Most people seem to agree though it's underclocked.
Art, 10 Sep 2010Does this phone got live widgets?What exactly do you mean with live widgets?
I know theres for example a music player widget, from what you can play music without actually opening the music player "the hard way". I've also seen different apps there as widgets from ie. different newspapers that automatically update with the latest news or whatever its feeding.
Wheez, 10 Sep 2010Hardware specs and OS have very little to do with each other.
You forget that N8 has dedica... more... is NOT underclocked!
N8 have 600mhz proc default speed!
Nokia made OVER-clock for N8 to 680mhz, because, nokia is cheep, slow, ugly, monopolistic and crappy company!
Don´t mind him Wheez, he doesn´t seem to be able to understand... We just got rid of "the facts" to get another clown of this forum...
Please ignore or report him! Thanks!
People need to stop bashing other OSs just for the sake of it.
Anyone who really claims Symbian sucks is ignorant and stupid, anyone who claims Android would suck would be the same. Both OS have their pros and cons. At least for now, Symbian still has by far the bigger market share than Android.
I myself would prefer Symbian for the following reasons: Nokia uses it (im Finnish so Nokia holds sentimental value to me cos of that), it's been developed for longer and further, meaning they have managed to fix most "rookie problems" of the OS, it's lighter than the Android (not necessarily a good thing, but a good tradeoff FOR ME), these to name a few.
I personally wouldn't "touch Android" cos if it wasnt for the N8, I wouldn't even be buying a smartphone at the moment. Either way, I have my reasons to stick with Symbian that is a very fine OS, especially Symbian^3, although it looks boring, but it works. I personally don't buy phones to go "wow" at the menus.
So if you want an Android or the Windows stuff, get one by all means. Nokia will most likely never implement either, at least not android. I'm abit afraid for the Windows thing seeing that Nokias new CEO is ex-Microsoft, but most likely/hopefully they will stick with Symbian/Meego combination and develop those OSs to the best they can be :)
