nokia, this phone is ur last chance, if u guys dont perfect this, and make it a TRUE competitor to what's out there, i will never ever buy a nokia ever again, and the world will see you for what you've become, a failed, glitchy, unstable, smartphone company....
The Apple fan boys could not win the battle here so the samsung fanboys think that they could give it a shot here.Let me remind all the Samsung fanboys that SAM Sung while Nokia is still singing.I would pay Samsung owners my money to shove their phones up their arses where it rightly belongs.I wouldnt take a samsung phone for free let alone buying it even if it had a 2.9ghz or higher processor.
After a long nite of fixing PC hardware goodness I'm shattered. Goodnite! :)
You can no longer determine the speed of a CPU by pure cycles insdtructions per second or Mhz, Ghz. This is nonsense. The specification matters a fusion of form & function & how each part within the engine (architecture completes it's processes).How much it can calculate, add, multiplication etc...
Samsung has a young App Market for BADA which is also young & very immature. Also just because the clock speed of the CPU wave is one thousand million cycles/instructions per second, this does not neccessarily translate to faster compute performance if you read my latter explanation to learn something good.
The wave maybe a good device but the extra CPU performance is required because Android BADA needs it along with the extra I/O resources etc...Android & BADA require more power than S^3, S^3 needs a lot less powerful CPU. It's what type/spec & how the CPU achieves the process.
The N8 for instance has a GPU which has scored higher benchmarks than the Samsung Wave, Galaxy S. The N8 won't be just some dissapointing device. It will achieve most multimedia objectives with no sweat & it will do them better than any other phone.
800x480 means nothing except a super high resolution on a screen smaller than 4.0" you can discern what you are looking at without zooming in. No you need a 640x360 resolution so you can have true native 16:9 standards & actually see what you are looking at on the web page in orientated widescreen mode. you need a bigger screen to discern the benefits of 800x480 even then it's too small, uses more energy, req more GPU power, CPU power to upscale everything.
what does engadget prefer before the first iphone announced?
The recent meego ui for nokia is real, the youtube video clip has been ordered to be removed by nokia corporation
the only thing missing on n8 is 3G LTE network,if n8 could have 3G LTE(DL 100mbps / UL 50mbps) then it would rule the market forever.Otherwise N8 is just perfect,hey what will you do with it if you own it,play next gen game on hd plasma tv,watch on demand web tv,take yourseft high quality pics and vids,surf the web,list is endless and of course show off to other phones what n8 can do.Definately buying n8.
new sample photos from n8!!!
look at the amasing quality..yet still not the final version..
so can yr iphone 4 or galaxy s or wave do that.i doubt so!!!:)
nokia rules,well if u r not pleases,dont come to n8 comment box...
this is the best phone ever yet from nokia!!!:)
I have samsung wave,it is very boring phone ! Worst camera,bada sux,not user friendly,phone freeze when i open 3-4 applications,build is cheap,no more softwares to download ,i want to sell it,samsung is crap
Okay, here is what i found searching more info on net. Cant say if they r genuine or not. Symbian^3 has backward compatibility; means apps from previous version ie s60v5 will work on it! Next, only nseries sets will ditch symbian not the x or c series; means n8 is not at the dead end. Next, both meego n symbian^3 r based on "qt"(??), so bifurcation of platform in nokia won't prove to b a hurdle for apps developers; plus, with symbian^4 due, it means,again, n8 will not be left alone, stranded. And lastly, few of the game developers have reportedly extended their support to n8(g.loft n ea for eg); means games will come, (but still keeping my fingers crossed). Hope those info r not hoax coz i m surely getting n8 by the year end.
[deleted post]Hi o.k the camera might be o.k on the N86,but the screens to small an speakers way to low,the n8 really outclasses your mobile,with a 12 mega-pixel camera with xenon flash an dolby speakers,an the screen size alot better for videos an images on the N8
For those people who r groaning about slow processor on n8. Google it. N8 is 180% faster than n97, and 30 odd % faster than google nexus.
Well, i m planning to buy this phone. But few serious doubts....firstly, jus read that after n8, all nseries will feature meego n not symbian. That means, will i b left stranded at the dead end of symbianOS? And risk having paucity of apps n games?
Though i dont care about games,aft my n95 let me down seriously, but if n8 turns out to be lone model flashing symbian^3 ,then it will b a real misery.
Found demo of 3d asphalt5, nfs shift, but after ngage2 fiasco, its real difficult to trust symbian.
Engineer Man, 04 Aug 2010Good Phone. Unmatched by any possible standards Apple could only dream over. Nokia N8 vs Iphon... moreengineer man, every touchscreen phone that released after the iphone gets compared to it. be it any htc, samsung or nokia product. Now that tells us something about the iphone doesnt it ??
Engineer Man, 04 Aug 2010HAHA just as Microsoft wouldn't want WinME on their track record. Nokia would do well to hide ... moreand still people are doing the same. I really hope that N8 lives upto the expectations !! :) i would only like to say that i am definitely keeping an eye on N8.
