Just wanna say that despite I am a Nokia fan and SO want this N8, it appears that this is now delayed AGAIN! I'm getting really fed up waiting and NOT going to wait and am going for Iphone or something different! :O(
When you compare the $549.00 price (in the U.S anyway) and features of the unlocked N8 with others, it's EXTREMELY competitive if not a downright bargain. This phone is a pentaband people! It's capable of picking up BOTH AT&T AND T-Mobile 3g Signals. What high end Android Phone can do that for the same ballpark price? Or how about the iPhone? Omnia HD? The Galaxy Line?
That one feature along almost makes it worth the price. Then when you start adding up all the other features and it goes over the top.
Check out the websites. There are alot of devices who features don't even come close to what the N8 offers and yet they cost the same or more.
And for those who still think the price is high, just wait till the notorious Pre-Order portion is over and it actually hits the streets and starts showing up on sites like Amazon, Dell etc.....the price will start dropping.
husi, 21 Aug 2010That is what m asking, will the web browsing experience on n8 will be same as n900? (full web ... moreHusi. You cant buy it before release even if you get that information. So I suggest that you wait for it to be released. You see the real videos of units that are sold to consumers. And then you read some reviews. The information you seek will definitely be covered in detail.

D_x6, 21 Aug 2010U r wrong.i have nokia x6 and 4 ur kind information 4 recording video there is red light.thanksOkay. May be I was wrong. Thankyou for correcting me. :)
On an unrelated note, I have used nokias almost all my life and I believe they make very good handsets. But if you have an x6, then my sympathies rest with you. Hope N8 is released soon to cure your woes.
sanjeev, 20 Aug 2010nokia making big mistake of selling this phone equivalent to the price of unlocked Iphone 4. f... moreIf you think you are going to find an unlocked iphone for $600, then you better extend your vacation on Fantasy Island.

AMANITA, 21 Aug 2010Not led but it has a red video light ! :)If you mean that there is a red light that you can use while shooting videos in the dark. Then you are wrong. Why would they give you a RED light to shoot video ?
Good News For Nokia Users,
Nokia Has Planned To Release N9 Before Christmas To Capture Market.
So If You Are Planning To Purchase N Series Phones, So Please Wait For Two Months.
Because N9 Is Much Much Better Than N8.
When N9 Is Released By That N8 Resale Will Fall Up To Fifty Percent.
So Please Think Carefully Before Purchasing N8.
Thank You In Advance.
AMANITA, 21 Aug 2010Not led but it has a red video light ! :)The red color light is not for video rite?
It is Auto Focus assist light rite?
Afaik, there is no video light for N8.
But is ok. Because N8 still great in all.
I just pre-ordered mine! If you like Nokia, get it!
can some one tell me if the video light is as bright as the ones one the nokia n86
Stefanos Gatdoulos, 21 Aug 2010It has only 256MB of RAM. Most new smart phones like the iPhone 4, Droid, and Evo have 512MB ... moreWith paging feature I don't think the RAM will be an issue anymore
you can allocate internal storage space to be used as virtual memory (much like Windows but faster due to hardware differences)
AMANITA, 21 Aug 2010N9 will have 8mp cam with dual led flash !no amanita the new n9 (that looks like the macbook mini pro) is gonna pack a 12mp and the old named n9 is gonna have an 8 mp which is gonna turn to be a nokia n8-01 or in the c series. u can read this on google if u dont believe me
Stefanos Gatdoulos, 21 Aug 2010It has only 256MB of RAM. Most new smart phones like the iPhone 4, Droid, and Evo have 512MB ... moreThe symbian is also alot lighter to run than iOS or Android. After boot the N8 has like 128mb RAM left, which is more than enough to multitask 15+ applications (real multitasking, not fake multitasking like iphone).
So far no one has been reporting about the prototypes running out of RAM.
Remember, the higher the specs, the bigger the batter consumption, something that isn't really optimal to have in a mobile phone. EVO 4G is a good example of this.
It has only 256MB of RAM. Most new smart phones like the iPhone 4, Droid, and Evo have 512MB of RAM (twice as much). However, the camera specs are sweet with the N8. I'd wait until a smartphone has at least 512MB with 12MP camera, then it will satify all the app-hungry, photoshooters out there.
