I'm a bit sceptical about the price... Maybe sellers are overcharging because of the hype created on the web. There was a similar situation regarding the Samsung Wave. Before it was released in India, sellers on ebay.in sold some of them for as high as 29,000INR but soon after the release, the price dropped dramatically and now it can be bought for as low as 17,000INR.
it's always better to wait a few weeks after the release to get an idea of the actual price.
N8 is priced at around 420 GBP when it'll hit stores in the UK by the end of August. basically, around 30+K Php in the Philippines.
Why Is The N8 Taking Long?
the guys who ask about the prossecor
it's 750 clocked down to 680
and it can easily clocked up to 800-850
and it doesn't need more than the 680
symbian 3 is like windows xp not hunger for power
and also symbian^3 got a new ram manegment so it wouldn't need any ram power either
don't compare it to another mobile about the hardware
cause the os got it's needs.
Nokia today in London had a N8 Development Launch,showing off the intersurface of the Symbian3 software an loads of N8s in the Room,what i have read from people who were there,they were really amazed how faster an Simple the N8 was to use,So hope by the end of August we do finally get the N8,o.k Nokia were under loads of pressure with the N8 after the N97 not a good competitor with Android or iPhone software,so did not want to release the N8 till it was fully up to date an ready for release,but another thing Nokia have got to stop doing is letting people knowing of the future mobiles they are going to release,as Elgar on mobile-review.com had the N8 prototype in April an downgraded the N8 before it was even released,that Why? Nokia is taking that long to release the N8 to Shut Elgar Up!but its been annoying waiting for the N8 Now
a lot of comments posted but I will wait till I finally try and test this "amazing phone" so to speak. There will always be an advantages & disadvantages of every phones in the market. So let's just be opened to that. Marketing people in Nokia and other brands have made their strategy to market the products. We cannot expect a perfect phone that has all the features rather appreciate what the RD Dept did to let the end users like and dislike. If this phone really amazing then let's see by hand and criticize after.... PEACE to all.
SidewindeR, 03 Aug 2010He he... I was just prowling through the Wave forum when I stumbled upon this. The mighty Sams... moreI was getting impatient and thought of trying out the Wave because of the wide publicity it has received....Thanx heavens that I didnt buy one. I was utterly disappointed with it......the phone boasts of hardware power and speed but it showed memory error when I tried to zoom a photo....and the message showed on the screen to shut down the applications i.e. the camera application and the homescreen....it was hard to digest and surprising....I will certainly check the phone at some other store just to confirm....but for now, I cant trust it anymore
what the hell its gonna be so expensive and i bet its realy slow. a 680mhz processor? the pixon twelve has a 800!
[deleted post]My Friend this the matter of personal Test,

Out of this World, 03 Aug 2010N8 is a toy for kids, only for taking pictures by its 12MP camera, nothing more. N8 is laggy b... moreDear Grand Paa......
you are right N8 is Toy..A Beautiful Toy For younger's.

Our Toy is Stable and Durable .
so, Grand Paa don't be a salesman of Wave,
this place is reseve for our N8.

@anon. quote "i would rather choose Omnia II..hehe"
That would be a very poor decision. The Omnia II is a resistive touchscreen where the N8 is a capacitive touchscreen, like the iPhone. They are hardly comparable at all. The Omnia II is like a blast from the past using outdated technology
Against You, 03 Aug 2010,.,.my gosh,.,. i love that phone the nokia n8,., im from philippines.,., but i think its so e... moream from the Philippines too :)
