This phone is taking far too long to come out and now has been delayed again until early October which makes me think when Nokia say they had some finishing touches to add they actually mean they have placed the Antena in the same DUMB place Apple had,
This is only my opinion but If Nokia really want to compete with the fierce phone market they better move soon with this phone afterall 720p HD is not a special feature anymore and 12megapixel is good but Sony Satio had this option 1 year ago.
I will definately buy this phone if it comes out in the next 4 weeks but if not I think I will have to go for HTC.
Nokia best and useful application http://www.nokia.com/makemyapp
plus application from iphone and android with QT come to your nokia phone... woo hoo thats too much.. who cares
OMG, just read the N8 is now being delayed a month further! :O( (End of September now!)
tony, 29 Jul 2010Symbian doesnt require 1Ghz of raw processing for optimal performance its 680MHz works better ... moresee how far you get with N8 outdated and no or say enough application as iPhone, Android, or Blackberry.
toteu000, 29 Jul 2010I don't get it why there are so many of you ignorant and angry fools bashing this phone (or an... moreI think you are the one not getting it. Of course if you use old or say out of date Nokia Symb. on slow processor seems fast. but do not think is time to upgrade the OS and then use faster processor.
Have you thought about if Nokia use his old OS on faster processor by how many times would be faster?? Nokia look like using or running window 95 on Existing CPU. Software and CPU need to move along together.
Nokia OS is really like using a Window 95 or say Window me on PC.
Most of the goats are speaking about Galaxy S.
Just went to look at the spec's - http://in.samsungmobile.com/mobile-phones/samsung-i9000-specification#expand
Talk Time is 1500 mAh?
Poor Samy is not able to create a spec sheet, how they are going to create a real phone.
Guys n Gals - Don't waste your money on GHz, after all you are not going to run Eclipse or Visual Studio.
The phone is cool. I love nokia. I see that promoters of other products are bashing this phone. It all boils down to what customers like. So HUSH!!
Guys the new meego device is coming soon it will be launched in Sept. it is going to pack a 1ghz processor (snapdragon or atom intel processor) with a 12 mp camera, the hardware is going to be special it s going to be thin too i just read an article about that, i am going to post tthe link later
GVS, 29 Jul 2010Nokia is just gathering the audience by making false low price at the initial announcement.370... morei am sure that when you pluck out your credit card you WILL get the correct price. You think?
Symbian doesnt require 1Ghz of raw processing for optimal performance its 680MHz works better than android on 1ghz processor and dont forget symbians battery life your android and iphone can only dream of.
bro it does not depends on freq of procesors it also depends on applications of diffrent phones may b same application executes properly on n8 than galaxy ..............
it doesnt matter at all
I don't get it why there are so many of you ignorant and angry fools bashing this phone (or any other phone, brand, etc) Let's take few examples:
1: CPU: 680 MHz ARM11 and 256 MB RAM:- some OSs are not hungry for that crunching power of 1+GHz CPU and don't use as much RAM, therefore Nokia can afford to use a previews generation of CPU with lower clock speeds, because it can handle the OS good enough, it does not drain battery like crazy, and it doesn't get super HOT(i had problems with Moto Milestone(Droid) doing same things as my HTC Hero, the droid getting too hot in most common tasks like web browsing, even browsing the Market and installing apps).
2: Display Resolution of 360*640 on a 3.5 inch screen is perfectly fine, remember the iPhone's res and screen size, it didn't seem to bother anyone, and the N8's is even higher. I have a PSP with 480*272 resolution and is decent enough to watch a movie/cartoon on it.
3: Symbian^3 is a new OS, redesigned functionality wise. Of course, the UI resembles S60v5 a lot, but as far as i've seen it runs much smoother, and they've improve it a lot since it was first demoed.
4: Camera is very important for some people, after all, for a phone the most common uses are: making calls, texting/email, taking pictures/videos and web browsing --which are very well implemented on the N8. Other features like gaming appeal more to a niche segment of the market, and the phone also manages to run a few up to date cross platform titles.
I know there are phones with a lot more power under the hood, but you can't accomplish a lot more with that extra grunt.
Please excuse me if i made any language mistakes, i'm from Romania.
