i think after nokia offers ovi maps for free, there is no way garmin or anyone else returning with a updated navigation sw.
jai rocks, 30 Aug 2010hi frends, there is an important information for all of you.. i don"t think that people... morehey jai- i wait your revue after you use the phone for at least 1 month- i'm sure there will be more problems and more neg.
there is an important information for all of you..
i don"t think that people from nokia have actually discussed the problems that they are facing with nokia n8..
my uncle is on higher post at Nokia India Head Office
which is in SP Infocity,
Industrial Plot no. 243
Udyog Vihar, Phase 1,
i don"t wana disclose his name out here..
so today i have got the hands on nokia n8..
so lemme share my experience with u..
things which i liked the most..
screen display is really impressive..
has velvet touch..
phone ui is pretty fast when compared with previous nokia phones..
camera is something which i should say unbeatable..
looks pretty handy and attractive..
scrolling and other features are excellent..
please don"t compare its speed or ui to android or iphone os..it doesnt lag anywhere but cant be compared to other os..
casing is smthing for which we all should appreciate nokia..no need to put in covers as dey are scratch-less..data transfer speed is pretty fast..
things which are hided by nokia..
for users in india (will not get all colours)
only black and silver are available till now..
hopefully green will be available too..
but orange and blue will not be available..
this device doesnt support divx so will not play avi format..will play those videos only thru third part applications..
will get only a basic kit..
no bluetooth headphones..
european countries will get those..
if u try to change sim card while phone is on,
will not show network signals for the inserted one..
if u put the one which was in earlier will detect..
dis is the main reason for delay..
if u want to use different carrier u will have to reset ur phone..and dats the only option..
it can detect portable hard disks upto 500 gb and
usb sticks upto 16gb(not more den dat) when using usb on the go support..
colours are not dat vibrant as was in samsung i8910 omnia hd..
doesnt support live wallpapers..
spb mobile shell doesnt work on symbian 3..
there are so many applications dat doesnt work on this platform..
themes of s60 v5 can be installed but will show up as they usually show up in s60 v5 versions(so not of use as doesnt look nice)..
new homescreen is something which u will like and there are certain new features(like pinch to zoom) which will make u feel good but if somebody has used omnia hd with hyperx vx roms..for those guys i feel pity as we have seen most of the features in andy"s roms..anyways at last nokia has put a step forward towards evolution not revolution..
im definitely gonna buy this phone as soon as it steps in the market..
for guys who dont wana buy this media monster and wants to wait till nokia n9 comes in,
guys who love clicking pix should go for this phone as we dnt know wheather nokia will ever be able to produce any phone with such a lovely camera..
for me its a usefull phone, as i think of present..
y to wait wen we r not sure wts gonna come in future..
ui will be better for sure in future phones but the kinda hardware it has or it supports may not be available in future nokia phones..
somebody has truly said: hit the rod when its hot.
Caperz, 30 Aug 2010Hi Amanita,
If you click Specifications on the top left of this page (under the picture of ... morespecs are not 100 percent correct..
it doeesnt play avi format files...
i have tried that..
[deleted post]its on the left side of phone,
open the latch and insert the sim card as we do it to remove memory card..
AnonNook, 30 Aug 2010AMOLED capacitive, 3.5in screen? 16GB internal storage and 12MP camera? 680Mhz processor with ... moreyes, but what about the applications on os - compare with iphone 3gs,4 or the phones with an android.-nokia has only low quality app.-poor games,poor news, poor music,-in the end is just a powerfull phone but useless.
I had in hands n8 and an iphone 4- rezolution of n8 -poor low quality- better iphone4 , and the touch is perfect on iphone4 , and than i tryed an samsung galaxy- is perfect situated between ip4 and n8. .But the price of n8 is too high ..
AMOLED capacitive, 3.5in screen? 16GB internal storage and 12MP camera? 680Mhz processor with dedicated GPU? All of this combined with a new OS designed around the touch screen?
My God. It seems Nokia is finally out of the cell phone dark ages. Well, partially, anyway. It only took years after everyone else did it! I feel kind of proud of them.
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2010I think samsung galaxy is the best phone which i have ever in my life.its really a iphone4g ki... moresamsung galaxy is really an iphone 4g killer... you're right, that's why we only see iphone 4, not 4g.
Very very good phone but i would like Nokia have two sim and can activate the same time.mean other nokia competitor they already done .thank vathana
i guess there are forums for all other phone type so why wont u guy go to ur various forums and admonish ur very beloved ios and andriod phones,left to me they are all crappy and u are probably regretting why u got it in the first place.The N8 is not even officially out and u are all yapping crap about it i guess u are scared that when it does come out it gonna be the rave of that moment and u feel left out and alone with ur ios and android phones. i luv the freedom nokia provides i hate to be limited and the ios is so very limiting. am waiting for it to be officially shipped so i could get one.
All this smack talk about this phone is better, that phone is better...BLAH BLAH BLAH
I'm not one to quote Steve Jobs, but he was absolutely correct that there is no such thing as a perfect device. EVERY device out there has its strengths and YES it's weaknesses. I don't care if it's a Samsung, Nokia, Apple, or HTC. I don't care if its a Galaxy, iPhone, Wave, Droid or the N8. I don't care if its a Symbian, Android or Windows Mobile.
They ALL have flaws and NONE are perfect. And anyone who thinks otherwise is an imbecile!
ALL that matters is the device you choose is perfect for you.
Only thing what we can do is maybe to wait...
I wait until the release then its more clear if it will support divx or not. We have to wait something like 2 weeks then everything wont be a rumor anymore ....
AMANITA, 30 Aug 2010It is confirmed from nokia and damian that it has gorilla glass and divX support natively but... moreHi Amanita,
If you click Specifications on the top left of this page (under the picture of the N8) you will see that the specs do show Gorilla Glass and Divx Player.
Or did you mean the specs on teh Nokia site ?
Xeon, 30 Aug 2010Many people also sais that the N97 will play divx via application...! but until now there a... moreThis isn't the N97. It's nothing like the N97. So I wouldn't base anything on what the n97 was or wasn't.
