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!

@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 The Omnia II is like a blast from the past using outdated technology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 :)

*Three… the magic number*
GLOBAL - Symbian^3, the latest version of Nokia’s smartphone operating system, was officially completed on June 17th. The next stage before we actually get the phones involves tweaking and testing its settings to make sure it works optimally
with the hardware on the forthcoming Nokia N8 and the family of Symbian^3 devices that will
follow it. The Symbian Foundation has announced
that there are more than 250 new features in this
latest release. But which ones are going to make the most difference to you? Read on to find out
All the new features are documented at the Forum Nokia Library, but unless you ’re technically inclined, it doesn’t make for a light read. We’ve pulled out some of the top-line features here.
Symbian ’s graphics have been turbo-charged with a new graphics architecture, incorporating
hardware acceleration and faster software. This means that the interface will be quick and responsive, and also incorporates the stylistic flourishes - like kinetic scrolling - that make a big
difference when you ’re showing your phone to other people. The whole interface is
programmable, too, so we can expect a wealth of
third-party themes and applications allowing
everyone to make their phone unique.
The Symbian^3 UI now scrolls with a swipe, you
can pinch to zoom and tap to select. The interface also supports multitouch, which typically means
that you can type faster on a virtual keyboard, or perform more complex actions such as holding a
virtual ’shift’ key and then typing a letter. It should spell some interesting new options for games
developers as well.
If you ’ve been following the blog, you’ll already
know that Symbian^3 supports output to HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) for showing
photos or videos on televisions. If your video is suitably encoded, then you can also takes advantage of Dolby Digital Audio. More modestly,but no less importantly,
all i know is that there is no support for symbian. and symbian3 is going to be replaced by symbian4 in a couple of months and that symbian3 is slow and sluggish compared to android, blackberry and ios
