S^3 is just a bridge between s60v5 and forthcoming s^4. Plus, n8 is last n series phone on symbian, as they go meego. S^4 will feature in medium n lower end smartphones only, while higher ones will meego. Nokia has no history of major version update, plus they have tripped the repeated querries abt n8 update to s^4 or meego. Keep your eyes n ears open for the nokia event, if they announce n8 update possibility or the dreaded chance of n8 being the only s^3 species, likely in the wake of s^4.

Gsmarena is located in sofia right? so it possible for gsmarena to review it sooner or later this august?
Wait for n8, the most feature rich phone for a good and affordable price.
Meego phone. Some specs are expected
higher or same res as n900 whoch is already excellent
omap3 higher speed cpu and 384ram, 512 ram is super
no qwerty is good for female
and what is themost important for me is thebigger screen size in a smaller phone size.it is possible that meego os can be operatted without any front physical buttons on the front view
, yup somethinglike the htc hd 2 with the buttons row removed
SUN, 13 Aug 2010I really want to buy this but dont know its launch date, any concrete info on this. Also what ... moreU must maybe wait 1-2 months but then u will never regret ur decision because n97 and wave are both good devices but the n8 has much more features
im also waiting but when i bought the n8 i will use it for years... so i cant wait 1 or 2 months
I really want to buy this but dont know its launch date, any concrete info on this. Also what can be the expected price, 22-23k is ok, anything more than that will put me off.
I am also considering Samsung Wave & Nokia N97mini but Wave has Bada OS which still is new & N97mini has 16m TFT screen which puts me off atleast after using AMOLED in my n85.

Why put a lens cover when it'll make the device 14mm thick? Does that seem rational to you? What high volume mobile has a lens cover? Name one. Nokia did the rational thing. scratching the glass.
The biggest downside for such a great phone is the low processor speed & RAM, Symbian instead of Android and why can't Nokia put a freaking camera cover after creating such a powerful camera
