Nokia is planning to release N8 on 3rd quarter of 2010. http://twitter.com/nokia
What makes you think the N8's Monaural Loudspeaker will be inferior to other phones that have Stereo Sound or stereo 3d spatial sound effect. Just because Monaural is a single signal at the same power Mono has a advantage in signal strength over Stereo at the same power. That's why why some radio broadcasting stations still use Mono, plus it is used in hearing aids, radiotelephone communications, telephone networks to send signals over long distances.
However if a no of factors are considered with good quality clear circuit design, great Audio chip, amplifier, & signal path is clearer & greater & power is great. Mono can perform aswell as a two signal Stereo source & can be very effective at giving off just as good sound if source is good.
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2010is is true about the october 2010? well i can stay long with my x6. :)In some countries yes
others will get in September and maybe at the end of August
Mobile phone maker Nokia Corporation has launched a search to replace current chief executive Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, who has been struggling to mark a place for the company in high-end smartphone market, says a media report. Attributing to people familiar with the situation, the Wall Street
Journal reported that Nokia has launched a search for a new chief executive.
The move comes as Kallasvuo struggles to find traction for the company in the market for high-end smartphones.
"They are serious about making a change...Nokia board members are supposed to make a decision by the end of the month," the report quoted one person familiar with the matter as saying.
While Nokia continues to sell more cellphones than any other manufacturer with 40 per cent market share, it has failed to keep up with advances by rivals such as Apple Inc, the report noted.
According to the publication, Nokia US-based spokesperson Laurie Armstrong said the company would not comment on speculation.
The CEO of one major US high-tech company had spurned Nokia's approach after meeting with Chairman Jorma Ollila, because that candidate had not been keen on moving to Finland, the report said.
Nokia had also flown in at least one other US-based executive to interview for the job, it added.
Kallasvuo has held the CEO job since 2006, the year before Apple introduced the iPhone and roiled the market for mobile phones. The company has stumbled several times in its efforts to catch up.
The company is scheduled to report earnings on Thursday.
I hope what I have highlighted is true and new CEO will bring Nokia back on the track.
nokia has dual sim phones check the c1 and c2 series as for the n8 there is no dual sim but still I will get one the moment its out.rock on nokia n8 is the begining of the best
n8 loudspeaker is very nice. remember it has dolby sound digital.
is is true about the october 2010? well i can stay long with my x6. :)
a new ceo will replace Olli-Peka. anyways, olli-peka uses an e71 which is the best smartphone so far.
i cant wait to have one..or even two...nice job nokia..and gsmarena im an avid fan of your site..
This coming mobile is it a dual sim....it there any dual sim for nokia
when does the phone come I want it so badly I just can't wait anymore
october for release date is too late. This phone had to be released before the summer. Samsung will bring super amoled 12 MP camera phones. C'mon nokia I have never used another brand and I don't want to use from now on.
this phone has two faults
1- battery not easily swapable
2- no stereo speakers
I think this is the benchmark for mobile phones especially the HDMI interface input its gonna give the rivals a lot of homework. Everything about this handset has been put the max from the 12MP cameara, to the 16GB internal memory not to mention the expandable 32GB card slot. If ever you want a phone to keep for a long time i recommend this phone as you wont get rid of it for years if you take good care of it.
I take my hat off to Nokia on such a beautiful creation and i hope there is more to come.
