"anyways, i just saw the N8 at a Nokia store and was playing with it for a bit, while i was looking forward to the N8, i was left disappointed. Symbian touch is done guys, its extremely outdated, it's the same UI we been using for the past couple of years, i was also surprised that it was a bit slow, no where near as fast as my iPhone 4 and Galaxy S. can't comment on the camera cuz it wouldn't start, but then again i dont doubt nokia's cameras, they're always been some of the best out there. i did a bit of typing and i found the myself making tons of typos, even with predict on.
don't mean to slam the phone, but that was my short 5 minute impression, i hope things change by the time it hits stores.
for now i would say had this come out 2 years ago it would have had a better chance. i don't see what the N8 has that the competition doesn't.
better luck with "MeeGo" Nokia, symbian is dead!"

Bigger CPU: better, faster user interface.
Bigger resolution: U can navigate the web better. If you zoom a picture for ex., you will see the diference between screens resolution.
See the result, not only the specs!
The Nokia N8 is the phone that will be Very Important at Nokia,if the N8 fails like the N97,The President at Nokia will lose is Position an is Production Team down the Road as Well,so the N8 might the Phone that sorts things out at Nokia,thats Why? people can tell they have been Frightened of Releasing the N8 to Early,Nokia should have had the Symbian3 ready before they decide to Design an Produced the N8,but they always are to Slow on its Important mobiles,it Top Smartphones,an thats the Market they need to Get back on Track with the others,"E" series mobiles are looking more important at Nokia nowdays,an with the E7 being released soon,the mobile that looks like the N8 with the Querty keypad on it might deter people rushing in buying the N8,just hope things are sorted out Nokia as 2010 as been a very bad year for Nokia up till now
dave, 07 Sep 2010dude..regular users don't care about that! They even don't know what HDMI is.Oh and regular users prefer higher resolution displays? Bigger processors and exponentially short battery life packaged complete with screens they can't read in sunlight? Thats what regular users prefer? Well then maybe regular users shouldn't buy the n8.
[deleted post]All of that, Nokia used since 2008. That's what I've been trying to say. Nokia (and you) think like that: if is good now, let's use it forever!
I don't say Nokia is bad, because i like S60 apps. It's just OLD. They don't have anything new. All other (Sam, moto, htc, se) use new tehnology; they evolve. No, not Nokia.
dave, 07 Sep 2010Man, look at samsung: galaxy S, wave. Look at HTC: desire. Look at Motorola: Milestone, Droid.... moreSo be it, bring it along with you.
Nobody knows(except for the manufacturers) on what Nokia N8 can do until the official launching, so you just shut up and see what Nokia N8 can do before you complain.
And with a hit like this, Im sure almost all developers will make a symbian^3 version of android's.
dave, 07 Sep 2010:) blind nokia fanboy.
I'm not anti Nokia. I used N82..a very good phone. Even now I have a ... moreNow tell me, what can any of those phones you keep thumping do that the n8 can't.
And stop comparing the n8 to the n97! It makes you look twice as stupid.
Its runs a different os, reads usb drives, has hdmi out and is made of freaking aluminium amongst a host of other upgrades.

I'm not anti Nokia. I used N82..a very good phone. Even now I have a nokia. But..N8 is an N97 with bigger screen and camera..that's it. They use old parts. They live in the past!
[deleted post]Man, look at samsung: galaxy S, wave. Look at HTC: desire. Look at Motorola: Milestone, Droid. All of them are superior in display (size and nr of pixels), RAM, CPU, User interface..you neme it!
The diference beetwen N8 and the old N97 is the camera and the screen (capacitive and bigger). THAT'S IT!
We are NOT interested in other phones
It's Nokia N8 page, so keep the discussions regarding this device ONLY .
LOL too low ram n ro, 07 Sep 2010LOL some guys claim that this has a too low ram n rom?? Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha this has the sam... moreNot just that, the year old Samsung Omnia HD has 256 RAM too and it can run 50+ applications simultaneously running on Symbian S60V5. So dont be a know it all guy, do a research first before posting and claiming your mobile is the best.
Looks like all the confusion surrounding the N9, N8-01, E7, C7, C6-01 is solved. So finally the E7 is the N8 look alike with the menu button on the bottom center, unlike the menu button on the N8 which is on the bottom again, but this time on the left hand side. The N9 is the one without the menu button and has a less curved body than the N8 or the E7.
I have e71 but when i saw the N8 I fall in love with it. Am still waiting for it and Im running out of patience. When is gonna be coming out>>>>.
