why symbian doesnt need high features as 512 ram 1 ghz prossesor while other os*s need these things? is symbain always magic even if new symbian 3 ,4 or whaever! i think meego wont need high features aswell coz it will be nokia at most.
Crunk, 06 Aug 2010Why the hell do people keep posting comments regarding the 680mhz processor and the 256mb ram!... moreYou get the money back if you do not like an app from Android Market. Ovi store keeps your money even if the app does not install.
Look on the Android Market from an Android phone, not form a computer and you'll see the difference.
Crunk, 06 Aug 2010Why the hell do people keep posting comments regarding the 680mhz processor and the 256mb ram!... moreYou are right ! Symbian is AweFreakingSome !!
That was precisely the reason Nokia decided to not make any more N-series devices sporting symbian.
Because it has no bugs, its Super fast, its fluid, user friendly and innovative !! And Nokia knows nobody wants to have all that on their phones !!
Why the hell do people keep posting comments regarding the 680mhz processor and the 256mb ram!! Symbian doesnt need so much power, whether it has 256mb, 512mb or 1gb of ram it will still perform the same. Its like a computer with windows 7, with 2gb and one with 8gb ram still perform the same as long as you dont multitask monstrously! And unlike samsung who bring new phones every other month making you feel what you bought is obsolete, nokia doesnt do this and besides i dont know whats the big deal about android, i was checking the apps on the android market and they are soooo crap asin seriously! And please dont mention bada os, its lyk a iphone ios copycat and so is most of samsungs touchscreens like the I9000 galaxy s and the wave.
if nokia waiting for next device to b 1ghz processor ,512 ram wvga 1500 battery it will b mid range then becose all high end device have all these feaures already. nokia willl lost the market if they doesnt upgrade hardware and software for n8 befor it hits shelves. U r so late nokia ! U should realise meego nowadays. Regards.
Those who are complaining about the low processor in *N8*. they should think that Nokia N8 has a low resolution as compared to other Brands mobiles such as Samsung Wave. So it does not require a higher processor to Run at such low resolution.Think of your computers. when u work on them or Play the games at Low Resolution, the computer works fast and when u increase the resolution, the same game runs slow. So the N8 processor it Excellent for its resolution.
When Nokia will introduce High Resolution Screens in their Mobiles the Processor of higher MHz or GHz will automatically be used and Same will be the way to increase the RAM and ROM.
Think that Nokia All Touch devices are running the Same Resolution merely at a 434MHz processor and they all don't have a seprate GPU too. Do U don,t like them ALL?
Sumsung Wave is using 1GHz processor because it is working at higher resolution & thats it.
So in my opinion Nokia N8 is Going to be The Nokia N95 (Touch) for the Year 2010.
My Requirements From Nokia are only that They Must give a Mobile with Highest Resolution (Resolution should Be changeable to low resolution by the users) plus Super AMOLED Screen. When they will do so the Processor, Ram and Rom will automatically increase.
So, THINK ,THINK And THINK Again!!!!!!!

Anonymous, 06 Aug 2010Agreed! A phone with mediocre specs and speedy OS may perform as good as the current high end ... moreDear Brother..,
I totally agree with you regarding the fact that N8 has a comparably slow processor and less RAM than we expected... But I can't agree when you say 'it's just a touch phone with good camera for average users...' Come on friend...! Are you serious of what you're saying...?
Well... for the record, how about following features of N8....
* USB on the Go
* FM Transmitter
* WLAN b/g/n
* Largest sensor size of the camera in a mobile phone so far
Do you really consider above features are 'JUST Normal Features..!'
Think before you're saying something...!
Most of above features are appeared for the VERY FIRST TIME in a mobile phone....!
N8 is a very well balanced than any other phone,not like otherz ,they didnt put (may b forgot idk,lolz)
simple parts like flash,equilizer or phones which doesnt support zip,rar files :D Cheerz :)
Agreed! A phone with mediocre specs and speedy OS may perform as good as the current high end phones but surely not better than them. N8, rather than trying to catch up to competition, should try to outperform them to win the hearts of consumers!
Also, there is no reason to not to update the specs as with the time passed hardware prices definitely might have gone down, I bet the cost of 1GHz Processor and 512MB RAM is surely not as high as it were 6 months ago. I understand my assumption stands good only if they have not signed any contracts with manufactures. Here in Canada iPhone(660CAD) is hardly 100CAD more than estimated cost of Nokia N8(~550 CAD), why does Nokia sacrifices so much to save so little? I will definitely consider purchasing iPhone 4 if Nokia doesnít release a MeeGo with 1GHz processor and 512MB RAM by this year end.
Iím not sure if upgrading the processor speed or RAM is so simple in a mobile device. The rest of the system from the case inwards is probably designed for the particular heat dissipation and power requirements of the original CPU+RAM combination, and changing them might require changes in seemingly unrelated parts of the gadget Ė or else risk bad stability or battery life. (But then, Iím just an interested spectator here with no real knowledge).
At it being best on the market,you must be talking about the mid-end market? then yes,N8 beats the C6, Htc Tattoo, LG Optimus 540, and Samsung Spica or whatever they call them. Its only trump card is the Camera, otherwise its like a 5800 with a GPU thrown in and a bit more RAM. Its still rocking that strange ďnHDĒ display when the rest have WVGA and higher,and lets not even get started on how poor apps and games are in symbian compared to Android and iOS, those have such an active developer community which makes owning devices running them a lot more exciting,and lets not forget OS updates. Anyway i hope the N8 does well,its perfect for average users who want a touch phone with a good camera.
There are rumors that the N8 will ship in limited editions as the software is too buggy and the webbrowser too slow, which is supposed to be fixed by an update in mid-November 2010 (which probably equals May 2011 in Nokia-time-tracking worlds). I would suggest release the phone in December when the software is really done and stands a chance against Android. In the meantime, in order to keep hardware specs competetive replace the 680MHz processor with 1GHz and double the RAM.
Youíre on to something amazing with this phone! Everything looks very promising except for the buggy and slow software and I assume (since youíve never shown it) the N95-like century old super slow browser. Donít destroy it by releasing something that needs to be fixed later on. There are so many great features and ideas about this phone it would be a shame for all the developers who contributed building such an amazing piece of art.
One more thing: Please donít follow the same approach as you did with the N95 where 1 month later you release the N95 8GB. I guess people would be really pissed off if the bought the N8 with a 680MHz processor and 256MB RAM in September and in November you decide to release the phone with 1GHz and half a gig RAM. That would probably cost you the last few supporters left out there.
Announced back in December 2009, Symbian^3 is now completely open source and has evolved into an even smarter operating system. The biggest change comes to the user interface and the introduction of multiple homescreen support, as found on the Maemo-powered Nokia N900. Multiple homescreens will be fully customisable with widgets able to be dragged and dropped into position, making it easier to organize your favourite apps. Multi-touch is another boon, letting you use smart touch gestures, such as pinching and stretching with finger and thumb, to easily zoom in and out of images with maximum precision.
Drawing cues from the Maemo school of multitasking, Symbian^3 will also have the same ability to run multiple apps simultaneously. Watch videos whilst listening to music or catching-up on the latest from your favourite websites. Multitasking has previously been a talent reserved for handsets at the highest end of the device spectrum, so this marks a serious evolution for Symbian and ushers in a new type of experience as yet untouched on mid-range Nokia smartphones.
The premium experience exuded by Symbian^3 carries through to entertainment. It supports HD output, meaning youíll be able to hook your phone up to your hi-def TV, and playback videos and photos that youíve captured on your handset in big-screen quality. The same goes for games, so dust off your thumbs.
Thereís also a barrage of network improvements, including the ability to automatically switch from cell network to WLAN automatically, without interruption. Itís also primed for 4G networks.
The Symbian^3 platform is expected to be complete within the first half of 2010 and is anticipated to find a home on devices soon after.
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2010Do you know why the N8 will run better than other OSís on higher spec hardware??
Comparison... more"A country like Finland where every 3rd person works for Nokia..." =D
The actual ratio is about 1:120.
Do you know why the N8 will run better than other OSís on higher spec hardware??
Comparison with android:
Virtual Machine OS
Entire ROM must be loaded to memory at boot and the same for all applications.
OS demand paging, application demand paging, writeable data paging.
In other words, the same virtual RAM that people were jizzing themselves over on the N900 is pretty much available for the N8 in addition to better use of the RAM available. Android doesnt use any sort of demand paging, or WDP or virtual RAM, hence the hardware requirements.
Haha! No, I donít want to spread fear. A country like Finland where every 3rd person works for Nokia has probably already understood how serious the situation has become with Apple, Samsung and Android. Of course Nokia has a huge market share in developing countries but for high-end products they definitely need to catch up. And thatís where the money is to be made!
As to the browser, if itís so fast then why donít we see an official Nokia video showing it? Iíd be happy to be proven wrong!
Regarding RAM and processor, if Symbian is such an ultra-fast super-speedy operating system, imagine how much faster it would actually perform with a 1GHz processor and double the RAM! All the EVOs, Galaxys, Nexus Ones and iPhones wouldnít stand a chance at all. Or does Symbian slow down on higher processor speed?
Samsung Wave owner, 06 Aug 2010Don't set your hopes too high though, the port will most likely have more bugs than n97 ever had.see how android 2.2 runs on n 900. so i guess meego would work well in n8 if ported.
jabez, 06 Aug 2010n 8 is a very good phone,since it runs open source os symbian^3 there will be hackers who woul... moreBut symbian3 seems cool ! Symbian is an open source also qt will help to get more applications !
N900 has only 600mhz processor but it supports 6 os. So I thnk any1 ll b able to fix meego in N8 !
