By the time it comes out the specs won't look so great. Hell, the CPU and RAM already are not class leading.

mm there is alot of talk about the amoled screen some say it's not good at all&super amoled is way better and why there is no handwrite recognetion !!!
n8 can really play divx average of 700 mb
Key points below:
“Nokia N8 is more than a phone – it’s the first convincing PMP hybrid with 720p playback, HDMI out with 5.1 channel surround sound!”
Apparently, you could get (on the 16GB model) at least 30 90 minute movies (at 533MB per movie in MPEG4 h.264 – DivX average 700MB) . Though if you want more memory, you could just upgrade the memory card to 16GB or even 32GB.
5.1 was not expected in handsets, and has arrived much earlier than expected on the roadmap
industry is going towards an MPEG container; H.264 720p with a standardised audio stream based around 5.1
“As a viewing experience derived from a mobile phone it’s kind of unsettling.”
Difference between what you get on iTunes is iTunes stuff is two channel, for N8 it uses multichannel
Huge step up from AAC
“If you had a white board session with a development team to determine what to put in a phone that Apple doesn’t have, you’d end up with the N8…They’ve included some definite iPhone/iPod-type beating technologies in this device. “
On Content, “That’s very much on Nokia’s agenda, but I can’t obviously give any content partners’ names away at this point because the services are not live”. Content, content, content. Users need a resource to obtain them for their Nokia device – something simple, easy to use and easy to pay for. So services coming soon for movie downloads on Nokia?
For full quality movie downloads, Dolby recommends side loading (like iPod, download to PC, loading to iPod) though I can’t see why the phone couldn’t download direct if both sources are downloading over WiFi (aside from battery drain).
more camera samples
On the CPU: the ARM 11 core is underclocked to 680MHz. The default is apparently 750MHz which could be safely overclocked to 850MHz. Now we could argue that for S^3, CPU numbers isn’t all that important (and less so, comparison of CPU hardware with other devices on other platforms as Symbian is extremely optimized to run on less demanding hardware – hence democratization of the smartphone with MeeGo to push the hardware hungry devices.).
On the GPU: it’s suspected that the N8 has a class leading Broadcom BCM2727 GPU, which at the time was shown to pull in more triangles than any other competing phone. This is important for Symbian^3 as it is a GPU accelerated UI, relying more on the GPU than the CPU.
RAM: 256MB. For multitasking, will this be enough? The N900 is a multitasking beast and that has “only” 256MB (though there is +768MB virtual RAM and is on Maemo). Some could argue again that Symbian is more flexible in coping on less RAM. Very early videos has shown the N8 running 15 apps simultaneously with no speed decrease. But what happens when more RAM hungry apps come out?
N8 is a great innovation of Nokia. Because, FIRST: multi touch, symbian ^3, 12mp, HD video, HDMI, non-remove battery, multi home screen.. Oh! GREAT.

Plus i have to say that americans are some of the dumbest people in the world.
[deleted post]Are you talking about N8? If yes, where from did you get yours buddy?
I think you're actually lying because N8 is not yet available for sale.....so your post is actually baseless (unless you're talking about some prototype....and prototypes are not meant for sale)
[deleted post]Euro 370 before tax For this complete package of everthing in one decive
Symbian is to mainly for use in nontouch symbian phones
nut this new symbian foundation os has fixed many problems and have much simpler ui
use of symbian and meego is the tight choice for nokia, nokia owns these two os, why switch to android to suppoort google? Sorry you will never see andeoid nokia phones hahaahahhahaha
hate android, confusing ui, they should get rid of the physical front buttons and replace them with viortual buttons on the screen, that is pone os tha does it is the maemo and meego

I know many will go for high megapixel all rounder phones.
N8 is top notch in camera department and it is also an ALL Rounder.
Do you know what is that mean?

Ipod tries to produce more accurate & digitised sound and output turns out to be colder than several other mp3 players. My old Philips mp3 player produces gr8 sound on all frequencies compared to Ipod.
But Apple surpases every other music palyer in the field of UI & ease of use.
