Nokia sold 21.5 million smartphones in the first
three months of this year. So while some areas of
the market may be bleating that Nokia is on the
slide it seems more mainstream users than ever
are enjoying the benefits of the Symbian OS. Read
on to find out why 21.5 Million Nokia fans can ’t be
The first quarter of any year often sees a dip in
sales, largely due to everyone spending too much
in the pre-Christmas rush. However, a report
from Network World suggests that Nokia beat
current market trends by selling 21.5 million
smartphones in the first quarter of the year, which
is up quarter-on-quarter from 20.8 million. That’s
pretty amazing considering the world wide
market sold a total of 55 million smartphones, so
Nokia is clearly still leading the way.
The main reason for this growth is put largely
down to the growth in Nokia X Series and Nokia C
Series devices, which may not be cutting-edge
devices but deliver amazing high-end features at
an appealing mainstream price. This filtering down
of technology from the high-end to ever more
affordable handsets is a strategy that seems to be
winning Nokia fans the world over.
With Nokia moving the Nokia N Series to a MeeGo
platform we can expect to see more Symbian-
based devices appearing in the Nokia C Series and
Nokia X Series ranges.

N8 is made of 'anodized' aluminum, far better than aluminum and feels and feels far far more expensive and it is more durable than aluminum, search google. Wave has old boring look

After Nokia dumbed their customers with their Flagship N97 and I was almost forced by its laggy performance and Out-of-Memory issues to trade it. Now want to convince me to buy another flagship N8??
Try and die..
N8 can't stand against Wave..
Wave is rocking...

Nokia didn't care about their customers, thats why they are loosing their fans.. And they will loose more..
[deleted post]Dont forget wave is not as anti scratch resistant like N8. N8 dont has paint but wave has, thats why if you scratch hardly paint will be gone and wave will look like piece of junk. While wave users will get bored with same ui and no support, Nokia will give us full support and the ui will be continuously became better and more better. Dont forget N8 also supports themes while wave only one or two.
I love this phone and plan to get one when its released, my only issue with this phone is the processor. Nokia should really try to up the speed of the processor and RAM on this phone before it is released
this phone is the best on spcification, the os is open source,less power hungry,usb otg you can plug external hard drive,hdmi with dobby surrond ,free gps even offline and offcoverage the list goes on,not to talk of the camera,hd capability at that price plus nokia timetested durability--great phone
