Symbian ^3 review in non-english language at :
It looks SOOO similar to the S60 5th edition, but I know it is just an early unit...

please think twice before you talk
That's it, I'm fed up. What's the point of waiting for this phone which should have come out a year ago, when the rest of Nokia's services are in shambles? Messenger hasn't retrieved new mail in almost a week; Ovi Map ALWAYS picks the worst most congested route, OVi store can't even find Noki's own Chat app for the E71. Two years ago I would have laughed at the idea that Apple could produce a better phone for business users, but what's a communicator that can't communicate? The N8 is underpowered and memory starved from the get go. Nokia is more concerned with using up it's stock of obsolete ARMS processors and 128mb memory chips.
As per wikipedia, Symbian ^3 phones will be first to run Symbian ^4 including Nokia N8. Read here:
Symbian^4 is expected to be released in the first half of 2011. Symbian^4 provides an entirely new user experience built with Qt.
The first phones running the open source version of the platform will be Symbian^3 phones; one such phone, Nokia N8, has been announced.
@Cindy & Jade!
Yes S^3 is still limited to aspect ratio of 640x360 so that the Os & gpu driver doesn't have to scale apps to higher ratio therefore movies & games can fit the screen natively with no upconversion scaling needed they will look good & run well...
S^4 will support 800x480 so nokias newer handsets have gpus that are faster right so the older apps may stay the same. However newer apps will then be written to the new standards for apps as native format aspect ratio 800x480.
I couldn't see the time consuming of rewriting the code for resolutions in old apps. So gpus will upscale with no problem to higher res when support is embedded, written into into S^4 Os.
Android 3.0 will be rewritten support 1280x720 res screens tocompete with win mob & other tablet Os's.
[deleted post]and there's this guy who wants to buy a phone for wifi.. and here you are wanting it for music? go buy an ipod!!
what's wrong with these bashers?? are they actually thinking?? who cares if it doesn't have the "dream sounds" you want? sorry if the phone only have a dolby digital..
too bulky? go find a phone as light as a feather.. leave!
abhi, 08 Jul 2010i jus wanna know how is its touch........is it smooth as xperia x10 and does the phone hang...... moreit's hard to tell if it can match xperia x10 with its "smoothness"/speed (whatever you call it).. the OS difference didn't help. so it's really on the buyer's preference.
repent?? to whom?=)
No matter how long will it gonna take n8 to arrive here in Philippines... I can wait hahaha! I love the features of this phone...
I wish nokia could make this phone as good as the E90. That was one of the most brilliant phones ever made by them. Ive got mine for years now and nothing simply comes close to it. Nokia should really consider a keyboard version of this phone, but with the E90 keyboard layout. If they can do that, then we would have an excellent multimedia phone as well as a business phone.
Actually in my opinion, the N8 still have some tweaking which are compulsory :
1. Change the goddamn default browser. Current Nokia browsers are terrible!!!!! And I do mean terrible!!! I mean, look at N1 and iphone 4. Their browsers are much more user friendly and can load faster (is it because of the RAM or processor?)
2. Ovi Map is outstanding, perfect even but still, since it is a touchscreen phone and with the current market demand, pinch-to-zoom in ovi map is a must. So hopefully the retail version will come with pinch-to-zoom on ovi map.
3. If possible, DivX/XviD support out of the box. This little add on will be appreciated by us consumers.
4. I still notice N8 suffer from some lag when swiping between the 3 home panels. This issue need to be addressed as I am sure it will definitely affect user experience.
5. Again, the memory full error. It would be really nice if Nokia can fix this annoying issue.
These are the few minor adjustments which I hope nokia will look into. Aside from that, the N8 pretty much meets all my demand.
it'll arrive in the Philippines two weeks after the official release of N8!
