Whenever nokia brings something new, then this iphone and samsung fanboYS start shaking.
Yes they start shaking like dogs.
They start breathing like sheep.
Their eyes become big like the owl.
Thier cocks shrink like the skin of a 1000yrs old woman.
Let me tell u that, u can never bring nokia down a bit.
Nokia pls live long and prosper very well.
this phone looks great. as a nokia fan i think this will be the one for me when my up-grade is due ib october.could not be better timed.
Peter, 20 Aug 2010It's quite the opposite in The Middle East and Asia where people focus more on Nokia products ... moreYou are right. People in the middle east and asia do buy nokias alot and it is a very important market.
But lately, the "Buy nokia at whatever price" population has been declining and most people are getting more value in other brands. And hence Nokia's number stay where they are because no one beats Nokia in providing a plethora of features in their low cost mobiles.
N8 looks good and Nokia should really give it everything (apart from the wonderful features), and it would benefit them immensely if they gang up with network providers and launch N8 subsidized, because US is today a very important Smartphone market and buying subsidized phones is the norm there.
Very few there will spend money in one go when they can easily get a better specd phone subsidized.

The iPhone dominates North America so it's crazy that Nokia is putting a Premium price on the N8 for the North American market!
The majority of people will most likely NOT consider or even buy the N8 as it's Ridiculously EXPENSIVE, especially in this bad economic times!
The phone specs look good while the phone itself is OK, nothing great! Then again, MOST of Nokia phones are NOT stylish anyway!
The phone is listed for $550 USD at Nokiausa.com!
Why the heck is Nokia trying to compete with Apple's iPhone? It can't even compete on Price!
It's TOO expensive!!!
If Nokia can LOWER the price, ~$400 USD or less, THEN it can compete with the iPhone!
Otherwise, Nokia should get OUT of the USA phone market!!
In this bad economy, NOT many people can afford ~$600 phone (incl taxes, fees, etc...)!
It's ridiculously OVERPRICED!
People in North America won't buy this phone (as the iPhone dominates there) and Nokia will have to settle for Europe! Not sure about Asia, though, as Nokia's best selling market IS in Europe!
nokia making big mistake of selling this phone equivalent to the price of unlocked Iphone 4. few people will buy this phone in USA. Since its cost in US is 600$ including taxes.
All these reviews make me wonder, can you really review a product that hasn't even been released yet?
You can preview a work in progress imo, but not review..
Will Symbian finally have word correction \ suggestion that appear as you type, like Windows Mobile \ Android & iphone

Will Symbian 3/4 finally have proper word suggestion / correction
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2010google is to pathetic. froyo not yet official in the market. 2.2 gingerbread . 3.0 then... moreGoogle is not pathetic it is the mobile operators, google made Froyo official & released last month, it is the mobile operators who are delaying the roll out because they want to remove & tweet the software with there own rubbish software.
An important question (for me) about the keyboard, will Symbian^3 finally have work suggestion/correction, that appear as you type like on Windows mobile, Android & iphone, I know it has t9, but with out this feature on the keyboard I can not go back to Symbian & I want to because I luv there hardware.
google is to pathetic.
froyo not yet official in the market. 2.2
gingerbread . 3.0
then honeycomb 3.1
Ill still go for Symbian 3!
As we said, the N8 has a HDMI port, which means you can export content from the device to a TV. We downloaded a few film trailers during testing and hooked the N8 up to our 32-inch HD TV back home and the results were pretty impressive, especially with the N8’s built-in Dolby Digital Plus sound and the high-end 720p image quality.
Couple this with the fact that the Nokia N8 can potentially carry 48GB of data on board and you’ve got yourself a smartphone that doubles up as a nice external hard drive as well, so you can take your movies with you wherever you go. So long as the receiving TV has HDMI connectivity and you don’t forget the lead, that is.
What about the Nokia N8’s screen? Well, it crams 360x640 pixels into a 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen and is probably one of the brightest and most detailed we’ve seen and while it might not have the same level of finesse as the Apple’s retina technology, the Nokia N8 is still certainly up there with the iPhone 4.
Overall, this is an absolutely fantastic smartphone. It has everything you could possibly wish for in bucket loads – camera, tech, features, storage, UI, looks, etc – and is a fine first – and only!? – outing for the new and vastly improved Symbian^3 OS. In short, if you don’t want an iPhone 4, but want a device that can match it in practically every department, the Nokia N8 should be your first port of call.
Nokia, it seems, is finally beginning to move in the right direction.
And, please also note: the device we tested was still a pre-production model. Needless to say, we can not wait to see the finished article.
