r0bz, 06 Jul 2010I'm asking this just out of curiousty that i know N8 doesn't allow removing of battery. So,... morepress the power button a hold for 8 sec then the phone will shut down and that is simple i think.. just like desktops and notebooks( i'm sure that if your notebook freeze u don't remove the battery from it right?) :)
"The Symbian^3 based Nokia N8 will be available to buy from August 24
Published on May 24, 2010
The Nokia N8's release date has been declared as August 24.
The release date is a notable move for Nokia since it planned it’s initial release in July.
This was because of the notion that the phone would be enabled with their new Symbian^3 OS.
Due to the new OS, the Nokia will apparently be 180 per cent faster than the Nokia N97.
Since the phone is now being released in August, Nokia has made some slight changes but progress has obviously been maintained.
Amazon.com in Germany has been taking pre-orders for the Nokia N8, but at €470 (£406).
The price for the order is €100 above the initial SIM-free asking price that was previously released by Nokia."
Smart Looking, unique design. I appreciate the model. It will really pick the market. Dhoom Macha dega.
Someone once posted here, why can't Nokia be more like Apple, and release a phone within weeks of announcing it.
This was said before all the problems that Apple is now having.
Nokia, release the N8 when it's been properly tested. Thank you.
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2010NOKIA!!!!! RELEASE N8 ALREADY!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!! I cannot wait already!!! FAST!!!!! ... moreHaha, I understand your feelings buddy. =D But remember, good things come to those who wait. So N8 will definitely be bug free and if not mistaken, the memory full problem will probably be solved too. Plus Nokia is making some final adjustment to the software so that when it is released, it will be fast and responsive. ^^
Nobody can deny the great features this phone has..
I only got one MAJOR concern..
wether or not symbian OS had it's best days already.. you see android really taking the lead.. win.mob.7 comming, meamo on nokia n900 seems not bad aswell..
this thing really could be bad for the n8 sellings
NOKIA!!!!! RELEASE N8 ALREADY!!!
I cannot wait already!!!
Fast fast release N8 already!!!
I want it now!!! I want it noooooooooooooowwww!!!!!
COME ON!!!!!!!! JUST RELEASE IT!!!!!!!!
WHAT THE HELL ARE U WAITING?????????
I don't wanna wait anymore!!!
Please please release it right away!!!! T_T
I dont hate wave at all, it s a good phone. But those SAMASUNGA's DOGS make me sick of it. They make me hate it.
i had 5800, 5230, then x6. the homescreen works very fine. actually its user friendly and smooth. the accelerometer is very useful.
iphone 4g sold 1.7million 4gs in 3 days then 3/4s of the iphone was returned due to a big failure.
dont you know Jobs is just fooling you. large money for a crappy iphone? WTF!
n8 is the best. its the multimedia and smartphone monster. the camera and video camera with hd recording is very promising. I wonder why some people are acting that way. Maybe they were haggard by their n97's 434 mhz. but n8 is different. n8 has still the arm 11 but the real thing we should look forward to is the combination of the enough arm 11 680 mhz and the powerful broadcom gpu designed for 12 mp snapper. the body is great. i like the different colors. the 12.9 mm body for me is just standard. 1mm thinner than my e63. ram and rom is enough. it will surely sell more than the iphone 4g.
[deleted post]i think n8 is really smooth but im not sure on the "HOMESCREEN" :(
can you confirm about this based on ur xperience using it sir/maam?
Fantastic Specification,,, May Nokia N8 Remove Apple From Markets.... LOL!
The Benchmarks and Speed Test of the Broadcom GPU seems to be very powerfull and there will be plenty of games for the N8
Everyone is duscussing the old processor but the interaction of CPU and GPU is the main Point
680 Mhz are quite enough! If u all are negative about the resolution then i can agree because 800x480 pixels are standard nearly
Also its really rare that Nokia is build devices like this with many metal parts which are also anodized !
Anodized Parts are mre scratch resistant and feels very fine
We all must wait which changes Nokia have done until the N8 is available on the market
When they can solve the Problem with the " Memory Full " this device can be a hit because the previous Nokia Devices except the n900 had ever RAM problems
