Being from Finland myself and having preordered it early from the finnish Nokia Online store, I'll be amongst the first "normal people" to get my hands on one, since I believe Finnish preorderers will get theirs first (cos duh, they are made here :D).
So I will try to make a youtube video the day I get the phone that covers the thing as widely as possible. It's not gonna be a review, more like a run down on the features and functionality. But was planning to show the thing software wise like nearly inside out and let people make their own decisions about it.
in the September folder of the Dutch Carphone Warehouse (The Phone House, www.phonehouse.nl) the N8 is printed as "available as from 18th of September)
could this be? Would be great anyway. The closest Phonehouse is only 45min from where I live, at walking distance from a Dutch coffeeshop hmmmm where should I go first :D ;-)?
Now the N8 is officially on the Way,Loads will be want to see an read a review about the N8,an have Nokia finally succeded in producing a Top Class Smartphone,an with the London Event on the 14th-15th September,Nokia will be Targeted with loads of Questions about the N8 Why? an Whats as caused the N8 to be Delayed an taken so long to sort out,Hope we do find out all the news about the N8 an its well been waiting for,an will the Symbian 4 software be ready for 2011
Wheez, 02 Sep 2010I guess one worthwhile thing to notice is too, that while stuff like the iPhone 4 was released... moreTrue, true...
It took me ages to get my 3GS amd eventually ended up buying it 2nd hand
I guess one worthwhile thing to notice is too, that while stuff like the iPhone 4 was released pretty early from its announcement, it (and its earlier versions) had massive troubles at getting the product available.
Given, the amounts sold were pretty big in very short times, so maybe we can give them that, but just cos something was out officially early doesnt mean you can actually get ur hands on it :D
philm, 02 Sep 2010Feels like when i waited for e72,and waited,and waited..Nokia cannot rely on one superfone tha... moreWell then just be patient until 14-15 September... C7, N9, E7... All are mobiles on its way.
I hope Nokia is a big big diesel engine, started at the announcement and getting at full speed around mid September
This pre-view brochure I was given at the Salo Nokia factory (where the European and nearby markets' N8s will be made in) had a "picture" and short piece of text about Need For Speed: Shift, but nothing about the games mentioned in earlier comments.
So in a way I could figure this game would/should be in the phone when you take it out of the box at least around this part of the world.
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2010No they are angry bird, asphalt 5 and real golf pro.Oh thx dude !:)
it is the bst phone that nokia has come up with so far i wonder how much it will cost to get one in africa
Feels like when i waited for e72,and waited,and waited..Nokia cannot rely on one superfone that taking months to get out,they should be announcing more and more of them especially a button superfone to fill the gap in the market..

Aditya, 02 Sep 2010Few things could have been better.
1. Processor is 680 when we get 1ghz wth all such powerful... moreThis Arm11 processor is underclocked to 680MHz, because it can run over 1Ghz.
This has been done to save battery power.
But the Gpu is good and Symbian is a much lighter os then IOS or Android.
kjklj, 02 Sep 2010hey its 11680 mhz nt 680!!No dumb noob it is a ARM11 with 680Mhz and not 11680Mhz stupid.

Raffa We, 02 Sep 2010hi Wheez
that's what I mean with "reliability", in earlier days they gave an exac... moreAh, makes perfect sense.
While I do agree, but this phone at least is sorta special in that case.
They said they wont release the phone until they are satisfied with the software (probably after what happened with N97), and while sure I'd like an exact date, I also like that they will really put the software into good shape first.
Clift, 02 Sep 2010Nokia had such an amazing opportunity to deliver an amazing phone but looks to fail big time. ... moreSymbian isn't dying by any means. Symbian^3 will be put into lower end machines later on, so it will have support, some N-series phones are very likely to have Symbian4, according to the Nokia big bosses.
