Those of you worrying about the N8 being out of date by time its released and that other phones release at the same time or shortly after will have a better spec,
...should remember that most of us when getting a new phone are tied into an 18-24 month contract anyway so having a phone that has not got the latest tech is inevitable no matter what phone you get. For example everyone waiting for this phone must be using and older phone! I myself am still using my N95 8bg and it works fine -like it did when I first bought it and was happy with it. Surely the N8 will be even better so its no risk as far as I'm concerned
You just need to choose a phone that you will be happy with for the duration of your contract not necessarily the newest tech phone.
For me I know I could very easily be happy with having an N8 for 18 months despite what might or might not be out later.

Anonymous, 29 Jul 2010Wish someone could tell me what Nokia doing with all low speed CPU of 400Mhz for C6 and 600Mhz... morecheap plastic phone? really?
how about researching first before you look real, real dumb.
Samsung Galaxy S, Phone, HTC Desire all have fast CPU of 1Ghz and by end of this year Samsung Galaxy S 2 have CPU of 2Ghz. But Nokia still working with 400-600Mhz. Good Luck Nokia.
Wish someone could tell me what Nokia doing with all low speed CPU of 400Mhz for C6 and 600Mhz for N8?????? I really no understand and with old OS.
Nokia was a good company and leader in Smartphones before now down to this kind of phone and cheap made plastic phones
This phone maybe doesnt have anything i want but surely have anything i need, but im worried about its ram.

karthik, 29 Jul 2010Pre-Order started
Src : http://www.engadget.com/2010/07/29/nokia-n8-up-for-official-469-pre... moreDear all friends here,
I saw several people have posted news and links regarding 'Pre-Ordering' Nokia N8... As far as I know, Nokia Original web site doesn't mention anything about such a 'Pre-Ordering' procedure.. In its History, Nokia has never taken money from people before handing the mobile phone to the market...
So these 'Pre-Ordering' is offered by 3rd party people and we don't know who they are really...
I know you guys always trust Nokia... (Just like I do...)
But you don't have to trust these 'Pre-Ordering' offers as they are not really from Nokia.. (and I'm pretty sure, Nokia will not do such a thing...)
So please wait until Nokia launches our wonderful N8 mobile... and then just go to a trusted shop and buy it... Don't let some 3rd party people to cheat on you/ make fun out of you.. just because you're waiting for Nokia N8 so badly...!
Note: I'm not pointing finger at the friends who post the news and links about 'Pre-Ordering' because they also may not know what they're doing...
Just be patient until Nokia does it... (I'm pretty sure we will not face any problem of 'Lack of N8' on market.. NO... I don't think so...)
Framestore fx studio cool video editor for n8, check the nokia blog or see it on youtube.
680 mhz is enough for mid end phone, if you compare this phone with galaxy s or iphone 4 its unfair cos both are high end phone.
JUst shows the Nokia are losing it in the mobile market if the N8 is not released while the end of September-October,just Why?did Nokia announce the N8 to Early if the Mobile was not even ready to Produced,o.k they might have thought it might dint the Sales of the new iPhone4,but it will be 3 months after the release of the new iPhone4 we finally do see the N8,we got loads of videos showing off the N8,but now its not showing any of the new software,Nokia will be on to Ruin if its Fails like the N97,an how long will it be taken Nokia to produce its first Meego mobile,as with xmas not far away the best time to release the new Meego phone but Knowing Nokia it will the 1st Quarter of 2011 to late again,as thats all we are getting at Nokia nowdays
Ali Abdulla, 29 Jul 2010i love the idea of a projector, however apart from it being too bright(while not colourful) ... moreuhm, open thinking, im sure there must be a GPU, 720mhz isnt enough to record smooth HD i guess, especially at 30fps... im lazy to google atm, but im sure it should be there..
[deleted post]i love the idea of a projector, however apart from it being too bright(while not colourful)
its pointless unless u can insert a "video" in to it, for example , connect your PlayStation/wii etc. also usb otg, that would of been a win, i mean wats the point of being portable if you cant do that? too bad indeed
also processor and rams not good enough for android... and unlike N8 it dosnt have a GPU not to mention lack of Xenon..
i like the screen tho, funny how it looks 10 times better than the projection :(
1- no Anodized aluminum
2-lower cpu/gpu performance i guess
4- havent confirmed, but im sure camera dosnt match N8
5- no HD out
6- no camera cover(or scratch resistance), same with projector
7- no usb otg
8- no ovi maps
9- no gorilla glass(didnt confirm tho)
10- dosnt support universal networks(penta)
11- no class 33 edge
12- no dobly 5.1
13- no digital compass?
13 is ma lucky number, so i guess thats enough :D,anyhow, all those are small stuff, and the beam got some nice goodies too, like screen and battery, still tho, the fail of the projector is the main issue, if it had video in, then i might really think it over, "intensively"
im in doubt, specs of n8 or htc desire with sense ui. its really hard to choose between hardware features and android with eye candy ui
