Chris, 22 Aug 2010Its already been releasedThey have announced it, but if it was released, you would be able to buy them already :D
You can currently pre-order them, but thats it.
had a nokia rep tell me a lil about the handset.. looks amazing.. scratch resistant and also has a feature on there which enables you to add special effects to ur videos or pictures like they used in avatar...
I also like nokia. We know that price is dynamic but you can give approximate price. N8 is the greatest innovation in nokia..

slashgear says it will be out by late Sept. y can't Nokia announce a proper release date for its fans.
Anonymous, 22 Aug 2010Guys, does any one know about its release. in some sites it says that it will be out in UK by ... moreThe finnish Nokia online store (first phones in Europe will be shipped to finnish buyers, since they are manufactured here) says "end of september".
However, I personally think it'll come out earlier, as the N8 currently only seems to be waiting for finished software.
Guys, does any one know about its release. in some sites it says that it will be out in UK by AUG 26 and in India by before first weak of Sep.

As for the battery, was sort of wondering the same, but they probably have some reason for it.. :D
I am a huge Nokia fan and always will be but for a flagship phone Ill give u a few reasons why I wont buy it.
1.We dont need a 12mpx camera we could do with an 8mpx
2.Such a powerful camera as a main and the secondary still VGA why not 1.3mpx for social networking.
3.A 1200 mah battery why not 1500mah like E72?
4.Screen resolution just amoled why not super amoled?
Just expressing my thoughts.

Do you have any source for this?
And having used the N8 myself, I didn't feel like it even needed faster CPU or more RAM, none of the prototype previewers have mentioned that it would've ran out of memory either.
Symbian is just so much lighter than iOS or Android, that compared to those, it does not NEED higher specs to run.
And Samsung Wave and iPhone 4 don't really have extraordinary battery lives.

as you know iphone4 and samsung wave use 1Ghz processors and both have the best battery life.
this issue with nokia phones will be fixed by the introduction of meego.

Anonymous, 22 Aug 2010What are we meant to do if the phone freezes?
It is a pity that the N8 does not have a 1 GHz ... moreIf the phone freezes, you hold the power button for 8 seconds which equals taking the battery out. Just like holding a computers powee button like 6 seconds if you get a hard freeze.
The N8 does not need a 1Ghz processor. Symbian^3 runs with less and theres no point putting in a 1Ghz processor just for the fun of it. It adds up to battery consumption and then you end up having a batterylife of the EVO 4G, and that's certainly something I do not appreciate in my MOBILE PHONE.
For all who think Nokia N8 is underpowered:
I will show u all with trusted sources that the N8 have more Power than an Iphone 4 and i will convince
u all believe me :
-Nokia N8 equipped with ARM11(v6) CPU clocket at 680Mhz!
-It uses Redesigned pipeline, supporting faster clock speeds (target up to 1 GHz)
-widely used GPU by BROADCOM for DSLR cameras
-The BCM2727 incorporates a tightly
coupled 3D graphics hardware accelerator that provides a complete
OpenGL ES 2.0 solution capable of 32mio triangles/s and
OpenVG 1.0 capable of 94 “tigers” per second. Battery life is not
compromised with quality games consuming around 130 mW, providing
game play time in excess of six hours.
-Advanced on-chip ISP is capable of handling sensors up to 12 Mpixels
with on-the-fly image processing at 180M pixels per second and JPEG
compression at 10 full quality photos per second
-While simultaneously recording HD 720p video and
audio streams, consumption is around 450 mW
-256 MB SDRAM in Symbian benchmark 120Mb available (an vary) for mustilatsking more then 15 apps
If u have any question ? Then ask !
Oh u need a comparison sheet for the iphone 4 ?
U think Iphone 4 have better GPU ?Then take a look !
Now look at the CPU and GPU of the iphone 4!
Its the same like in 3GS but these time in 45nm process!
