Pardon my ignorance, but as it's the new Symbian 3 OS, will existing Symbian S60 apps be compatible on this phone (eg the apps for N97)? Thanks.
[deleted post]I share your thoughts re: Symbian as an OS for touchscreen phones. It's just too outdated, has nowhere near the form factor of other OS. That being said, granted Nokia don't released a half-baked phone, and as long as it's responsive, fast and stable, I personally would be willing to sacrifice a richer user experience for features and functionality. The multimedia capabilities of this thing are amazing, and it would be very handy to be able to plug in a USB drive.
kunal, 13 Jul 2010i'm a college student.... i love music, camera and look of phone... which phone should i go ... moreyou say that camera, music and look of phone are important features for you. in that case, it's probably best to wait for the N8. the N900 is very powerful, but not for everyone. And when it comes to camera and music, the N8 is (supposed) to be class-leading in this department. It's pretty much expected to be the best camera phone on a cell phone. As for the look of a phone, obviously that's subjective, but most people seem to find the N900 rather unattractive and bulky. the N8 looks a bit funkier, and is certainly thinner and lighter.

Nokia themselves have labeled the N900 to be a "geek" phone that won't appeal to the masses. It's not the most user-friendly phone out there, but is the closest you will get to having a computer in your pocket at the moment. The Maemo 5 OS is a nice refreshing change from Symbian, but it should be noted that it won't be upgradeable (officially) to Meego. If you're a big multitasker, then the N900 is for you. It's difficult to really recommend the N8 when it hasn't even been released yet, but this is supposed to be a multimedia beast - Nokia are harping on and on about its amazing camera, audio and video quality. So if multimedia is your thing, then you should probably wait for the N8.
Does the email support html out of the box?
Can i have more than 3 homepages?
Nokia can survive three years loss of market share?
Hello Nokia, Samsung Wave have already reach 1 million mark. Plus together with HTC and Iphone, you gonna loss a lot.. The longer you release N8, more market share will drop and more potential customer will say bye bye to you.
What is the bottleneck that make it delay from launching? Need to confirm software to be more stable? Come on, deploy more man power to solve all the bugs la.
Nokia N8 due for release 31st August 2010 (from Play.com)
Ovi Music Store, Ovi Music Unlimited, & New Nokia N8 Music Phone Features
BEWARE OF E7 CHINA CLONE. WTF!
Initially, the Nokia N8 will record and encode video as follows: 1280×720 HD @25fps using H.264 codec with up to 12mpbs bit rate. Stereo audio is encoded using 128kbps bit rate, using AAC codec sampled at 48kHz. We will be looking for opportunities to further improve the video performance in later software updates.
There are additional options for VGA 30fps and a mobile-sharing-friendly 3gp optimized setting. In addition to these, you can also reduce the frame rate to either 15fps or 5fps. This is to improve low light video recording capability when you use low light (15fps) and night video (5fps) modes
ill still wait for n8. n8 has a gorilla glass like that in moto charm.
