lonely cent, 07 Aug 2010you can use SPB shell that is much more beautiful than android and iphone OSs. For your inform... moreIt seems very good. :)
But it is not the FIRST to have either the bluetooth 3, or the Wifi n.
you can use SPB shell that is much more beautiful than android and iphone OSs. For your information nokia will use meego harmattan which is more beautiful than meego on other handsets. N8 is symbian 3, therefore QT written applications can support and millions of high end apps and games will come in a near future. who the hell did say N8 is laggy, no it is not. experiance from hands on preview we see there is no laggy running 15 apps at the same time. thanks to N8 GPU and 680 mhz processor.
n8 is cheap compare to its nearest rivals.it has the first bluetooth 3 in a mobile,first n-standard Wi-Fi(it's the fastest in a smartphone), nHD screen size which is perfect for HDMI support, 12mp Xenon flesh wide angle and largest image sensor in a smartphone (with carl zeiss lens the phone can produce much more clear picture and video than any other phone)(hello samsung wav),first Dolby Digital plus sound in a smart phone. Tel me, can u see them from any other phone). first multi touch in Nokia, first AMOLED capacitive touch screen in Nokia, first wireless mouse support in a smartphone, QT written applications supported.full flash 4.0 supported in the web browser,first USB on the go Wow now i can connect it to my 250GB hard disk and copy and paste the files easily with out a pc and ofcourse it will save time.. That's smartphone. Nokia N8- lifes make easy. And coming FX studio by Avatar movie special effects team ,Asphalt 5 , sims3 and need for speed etc.. yay... n8 among top searches and contract deals in Uk. Yay.. Nokia is fighting back.
i've already given up waiting on this phone a month ago, i bought a wave, honestly i don't think N8 can match up the graphic capabilities and UI responsiveness of the Wave,
what i want to hear from nokia about n8 is
is there nokia internet radio?
Is the flash lite4 capable of viewing online streaming video at site like megavideo, and playing flash games in web browser?
Is the flick scroll as smooth as iphone?
i wish nokia n8 screen size could hav been 4.0 inch as that of sony x10.X10 sleek sexy design confused me in selecting wch phone to buy...
feature wise n8 stands in pole position without doubt...
nokia n8 highest with 60 FPS with total 1440 only
samsung wave with highest and blowing n8 with 1614 ! and with my WAVE it went upto 1660 ..
samsung wave is the clear winner in ol acpects !! only camera is good in n8 that too only still pics but video 720p IS same in both but in reviews i like wave's HD recording more !! god bless N8..
Very nice,attractive design ! I like edges on the both ends ! It would b nice to hold it in landscape mode :)

Symbian3 isnt launched yet so how can it b outdated ? :D ! 680mhz (default 720,can b overclocked to 850) + powerful brodcom GPU itz enough! 256mb ram is enough to handle 6to8 applications! Symbian is an open source !most popular! Best multitasking! N8 is most beautiful phone! 5 lovely colours,so sweet !
[deleted post]It has not been released yet. And even when it does, I think the most apt place for learning about the prices is the stores. :)
N8 has 12MP camera,HDMI port,HD support,Gorilla display&AMOLED display........These are the essential things let us wait till the original launch and reviews............

n8 is well balanced phone with outdated screen resolution,outdated os,outdated processor,and outdated ram,add to that ugly design (looks like shaving machine),projecting camera,with heavy weight.
and don't forget no torch,no video light(12mp will not help at night),and all these missing features come with high price!?!
really well balanced :(
I got a question regarding OTG.
I saw some youtube video's where N8 demoed playing videos(divx) from usb. Now is that video file is already encoded to play on 3.5" screen or its in its original format which we play on PC?
Do we need to convert the video for N8's screen Or Symbian^3 will support playing any resolution?
Any beta testers? Pls ans me...

Nokia is comming back, Qt is getting popular and the latest major softwares are developed using Qt (Mozilla, Skype..). Nokia itself is using Qt to develop their apps.
What's the big think - App developed Qt will work in any Symbian or upcoming Meego platforms (Nokia says it will work on any.. PC too).

Nuwan, 07 Aug 2010Dear TP,
I agree with you most of your arguments brother... For an example, I'm pretty sure... moreIn the beginning of your reply i thought i was dealing with someone who knew and had kept up with the news,clearly not.
Symbian is falling rapidly,its no longer at 40% share,its at around 36% ,the only reason its so popular is because its fitted into cheap low cost mass production phones like the 6120c, 5230, 5800, N73, N78, 6220c etc...these are cheap handsets that sell in millions mainly in developing countries,i should know,im from one. That realy doesnt count though as most of the people who buy these in those countries dont even know what Symbian is,and are certainly not prepared to buy apps.
You talk about Symbian having millions of apps,but heres a question for you,out of all those how many are touch optimized and work on S60v5 and Symbian^3 PROPERLY? Not many, most have had to be rewritten,and the few that do work to a certain extent are annoying and inconsistent with the UI ,making the user experience poor, more than half of s60v3 apps dont work on s60v5 or symbian3 as they need to be rewritten and touch optimized,for example CorePlayer, probably the best media player in Symbian,is still not available for s60v5,and the current version requires another app to replicate s60v3 buttons so it can work on a 5800,but again this totaly ruins the user experience and just fills it with frustration,so your apps arguement realy is irrelevant. In Android all apps work on every Android OS version,and all Androids get OS updates to keep up, there are FAR MORE useful Android apps than S60v5 apps. I have a 5800,and a bunch of other s60s so i know what im talking about,i also have an X10,so i have both Symbian and Android to play with,and can tell you that Symbian has been left behind. Symbian maybe popular due to being shipped in cheap handsets BUT its NOT popular with developers, and that realy is whats killing it, most s60v3 apps havent been ported or rewritten for s60v5 or symbian3 as most of the developers ran off to Android and iOS. Lets not even discuss the apps and games quality in Android compared to Symbians as Android apps and games are of far better quality and get regular weekly updates,in Symbian app updates are almost a miracle and games are usualy released and abandond.
