prashant, 22 Aug 2010when would NOKIA's MeeGo OS release???????The rumoured N9 whic you can see pictures at here in gsmarena should be running a meego os.
Forgot to mention this... when I called to pre-order my N8 (1 day after pre-order availability), the Nokia USA call center told me they had already sold 300 in USA for pre-order.
pankaj, 22 Aug 2010first improved your battrey backup, then relesese..First try the phone, then comment..
Nokia N8, based on Symbian^3 platform,
supports Flash Lite 4 with the following features:
ActionScript 2 and ActionScript 3 support
Flash Player 9/10 content support
Multi bit rate streaming using dynamic streaming
Open Type font support
Accelerometer and Geo Location support
Flash Lite 4 supports Flash 10 and Actionscript 3
so now there should be very little differences
between Desktop Flash and Mobile Flash in a
Symbian^3 device. Flash is going to move away
from several different distribution methods. The
recommended way to use Flash or to build Flash
apps will be embedding in WRT widgets.
husi, 21 Aug 2010That is what m asking, will the web browsing experience on n8 will be same as n900? (full web ... moreNo! As I said flashlite4 is the light version of 10.1 ! But dont worry,since symbian3 is an open source anythng can b hpnd ! :)
I'm an American and payed full price? Some American's do buy unlocked phones. Anyway, I don't really like the looks of the n9, plus the my current phone is a Symbian OS, so transitioning to the n8 will be good for me. I'm waiting a while until Nokia releases a few MeeGo devices before I jump to those.
It's very interesting to see how hyped people get over this. If you like it, buy it, that's my opinion.
is it work in Iraq??because i want to buy one..?
it's great i can't wait to see it in my hands!!!
saying that though some devices are well worth the contract. Some phones costing over £700 unlocked sim free for instance paying £30 over 24 months £720. SO £40 over 24months £960. I guesse so you can pay up the devices cost. But heck the problem is smartphones getting more expensive, meaning higher charges over longer period of time. Still I would prefer that prices not be so expensive on mobile technology, so that we can buy phones for decent tariff price, length of contract 12months, move onto new mobile!!!
I actually end up paying Orange £540 for 18 month contract in UK. I bought my phone from Carphone warehouse with the Deal the Nokia 5800 phone was free. Nokia 5800 was worth £299 at the time I got it on contract.
So orange were earning £249 for the 600mins, Unlimited txts. That's not including the plus £4.60 for Mobile 500mins Internet bundle over that 18mnths. They really do charge you the earth! Whereas some phones are way too expensive costing more to buy if you can't get them on pay & go.
So sometimes with highe spartphones it pays to do the calculations & work out which tariff you need or they'll sting you up, down, right left & centre. Sometimes the pay off is contract is cheaper unless you wait for phone to come down in price, get 2nd hand. But I don't want 2nd hand, brand new.
I have noticed that some new high end smartphones for 2010 require a £35 contract but across a 24month contract, or £40 across 18 month contract. That is getting too rediculous. I want to upgrade phone before 12 months or 18 months really. Orange would still make their money with the tariff & pay the phone up. They are just too greedy.
I guesse as the price goes up on mobiles cost for unlocked sim free no network. The operators will find a way to make you pay less over a longer period & more over a shorter period of time. I am unhappy & have to stick with a Mobile for 18 months. But at the cost of me paying more than £30 a month to get a 12month contract so I can upgrade my phone quicker!
There's alway a catch for everyone no matter which way they do it. Unless you live in a heavily public free Wifi access point areas, use skype to make calls, then your only really going to defeat the carrier someway with a cheaper unlock device, but then 2nd hand a great choice for those that don't mind a 2nd hand device, but I do.
there's is no doubt that someone will port other OS to this device. it'll run all of them
you name it
i hope this phone comes with a case, don't want it to get scratched
