At one time for the older Nokia s60 devices such as my 5800 & others, there was no built-in Mobile Office Document Readers. The only way to get them were to buy it as payed content from third party symbian stores, or Nokia's own OVI Store.
With the N8 The mobile office document editor is included free with S^3 OS & is classed as a key application along with webtv, photo & video editor. New improved Music player, improved video player, improved web browser. Massive improvement for messaging. You can now have proper conversation with threaded messaging, so it's all unified inbox.
Anonymous, 13 Aug 2010What the use of 1ghz cpu and 512Mb ram if it cant do multi taskting like the aple phones. uselesssapple phone doesn't have a real multitasking it just pause the program
only music do not pause and IOS 4 is really a hungry for power needed to get the battery bigger so it can fit

android 2.2 will blow symbian^3 away, definitely.symbian is just sooooooooooooooo outdated that it cant even compare to android 2.0.
Guys... I've got a query...
N8 supports 720p video playback right. Ok i'm not specifying the video formats supported for now. it also supports Dolby DTS and 5.1ch surround sound right? Just take the case with a 720p mp4 video that has 5.1ch encoded audio. Dolby is AC3 multi channel audio format. So does that mean, the 5.1ch audio can be played back on the phone itself (whether it be the built in speakers or standard earphones) or is it only supported when connected to a TV that supports HDMi input. Can N8 really support surround sound via the speaker or earphones or is it just converted to stereo for playback on the phone?

I loved all my nokia phones especially my N95 was my favorite but then I got the N97 which I'm still using & Nokia has let me down to the point that I'm going to make the switch to Android most likely the Samsung Galaxy S. Maybe this N8 can redeem them but that's left to be seen.
About 10days before the rumored release date of the 24/08, there is still no official statement from Nokia... Anyone agreeing that this is weird??
As much as I am interreted in that phone, I am rather suspicious as per when it will hit the stores!!
Status: Coming Soon! Expected release 2010, October?? That's 2 months away!
this is just a show up. more good phones to come. OKAY?
n8 has the best multimedia features and it is a mosnter.
Why those Stupid people think that Symbian isn't good.
Symbian ^3 isn't a Symbian S60.
Symbian ^3 will be better than all stupid OSs.
great Nokia have still released firmware update for 5530 and 5800! how great. thats how Nokia loved their customers~!
roy, 13 Aug 2010The biggest downside for such a great phone is the low processor speed & RAM, Symbian inst... morethe proccesor (cpu) & ram are very high enough to make it the fastest ever!
Nokia didn't make a camera protection because the glass is unbreakable (already protected) there is no need to it.
Remember : Nokia isn't Stupid.
Nokia is the Best.
@ weng are you telling the truth? I'm also a Filipino. I currently own an e72. I just bought C6 for my son last week. C6 in now officially official here in the Philippines. I have visited Greenbelt, Glorietta, Trinoma, and SM Mall of Asia. I have talked to the sales men and asked about N8. It is in Nokia Philippines as COMING SOON. If you say it costs 46,850 PHP it is 1033.68 USD. Well that is impossible. It will just only cost 24-26,000 PHP.
to everyone is it true that both N97s has been DISCONTINUED? well that is good for Nokia.
N8 will be released in the Philippines on the first week of September with the starting price of 26,000 PHP.
people in the Philippines are cold Filipinos not Philippines. ;)
If nokia will not release a snapdragon phone, what is the qualcomm nokia partnership for? just for 528 mhz and 600? you can never say!
Nokia will release an N8 meego by the end of the year
Play.com have now changed their release date to 8th October 2010. Looks like the UK wont be getting it at the end of this month :-(
