Do you know why the N8 will run better than other OS’s 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 don’t 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 that’s where the money is to be made!
As to the browser, if it’s so fast then why don’t we see an official Nokia video showing it? I’d 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 wouldn’t 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 !
[deleted post]Im going to guess the price of this phone in the US is going to be $5--
aero, 06 Aug 2010I didnt say about n900 sale success records or anything. Did i? Just gave it as an example to ... moreOf course symbian didn't die, because Nokia just won't let it die already! You should see all those post on NokiaConversations screaming - Nokia, drop symbian FFS! You could use some research too.
This question is for all:
What is the best color for this phone for you?
I hope everyone Answer

aero, 06 Aug 2010I didnt say about n900 sale success records or anything. Did i? Just gave it as an example to ... moreDo you own an N900? I returned it within 6 days of purchase. It had a great potential, but with 100 000 users after 5 months of release there aren't many useful and stable programs for it. Nokia apparently decided to let the community finish their job. Sadly, there isn't much community to do it. I didn't want to install dozens of apps on my smartphone, but I needed a good music player. Default MP doesn't even have any equalizer or presets. Come on! Was it too much to ask? And there is no decent MP available for Maemo 5. 6 months after the release, Ovi Maps application wouldn't allow me to search the map offline after I had loaded the complete map data. N95 had allowed me to do that, so what the hell, Nokia?
In Q2 2010 Nokia announced they wouldn't update n900 to MeeGo. Samsung probably has one of the worst after-sales support, but I expected Nokia to do better with n900 support :(
n 8 is a very good phone,since it runs open source os symbian^3 there will be hackers who would port meego to it.so ul be able to install meego in it.
Why u not lounchs sets in chattisgar plz hury up im w8ing ur sets?
Hi All, please check this video about Nokia N8 OVI store. It looks more faster and more responsive than before.

Samsung Wave owner, 04 Aug 2010Too bad they only sold 100 000 nokia n900 in 6 months :D
I had one and returned it in 6 days ... moreI didnt say about n900 sale success records or anything. Did i? Just gave it as an example to prove that nokia can make phones that are really powerful(one failed n97 doesnt mean they r outta the game)
And if symbian guru closed does that mean symbian went on a total shut down? Go educate yourself first.
Yes, china made clones of N8 are floating around in market. They look like same but software is all messed up, its only java, you can't install anything else and no ovi services. Camera should be poor let alone other fancy features like HDMI, 5.1 surround sound, otg, FM transmitter etc. There are clones of almost every popular phone like Desire, Nexus one, X6. Stay away from them!
