I just want to remind some features of N8, which makes is greater than rivals..
Flash lite 4.0 : you can play any flash games on internet.
fm transmitter: Nokia always use good quality fm transmitter on their phone
True and live multitasking
16 gb onboard memory
loud speakers: N8 has D class speaker, which is really loud, so N8 is not just a cameraphone, its a complete multimedia phone.
256 mb Ram: though Symbian^3 supports virtual memory, so its not really a disadvantage
680 mhz cpu: Nokia is still working on N8, in some preview we can see N8 is snappy. So final product will be even more fast
sunlight legibility: in some pictures we can see Wave screen is better than N8 but N8 is also not too behind. I got info from Damian Dinning that in final product they will boost the display performance..
Symbian^3 ui: Well my answer is Symbian is now open source, so Officially or Non officially We will get symbian^4 update. Please go to page 2 or 3, I have posted 2 youtube links showing theme effect on Symbian phone. Please please see that..
Dont forget that N8 has 16gb of huge memory onboard & it is going to introduce flash 4.0 :)
Yes, but i think if it would be worth to buy N8 when a few months later devices with Symbian 4 comes out ?
Symbian 3 use Qt ? that would be great but i think the most apps are written in C++
Also the apps of 5th Edition would work under Symbian 3 ?
Aitoami, 01 Jul 2010If the news is true - Nokia is increasing the price of N8 after seeing the customer response -... moreActually Even I was wonder after seeing the price of Samsun Wave in India, it is only 17k INR in most of the regions that is only 297 euro. http://coinmill.com/EUR_INR.html#INR=17000
even experts are expecting its price to be 25k INR.
But I also get the news that N8 will launch in India at 22k rupees and after launching of N8 in India, Nokia will cut the price of both N97 and mini upto 4k INR.
BTW I also completely disagree with you when you say Only advantage to N8 over wave is 12mp camera..
Arvind, 01 Jul 2010after seeing the response Nokia is planning to increase the price ...they are planning to sell... moreIf the news is true - Nokia is increasing the price of N8 after seeing the customer response - than it will greately hinder the N8's sell rate.
The main rival is existing Samsung Wave.
The only adventage of N8 over Wave is 12MP camera. Some may disagree, but to be honest, Wave out performs N8 in every other respect.
I don't live in India but as some of you posted previously, Wave is now selling at only 16500 Indian$ And N8 may be 30000 Indian$
If the price tag is near about this than Wave may outsell N8 because Wave is the best value for money.
Niraj, 01 Jul 2010Actually I was refering to Gsmarena review video of Wave. Yes multitouch was accurate but not ... moreYou are most welcome and appreciated. A test to find out the MOST RESPONSIVE and MOST ACCURATE touch screen is on process.. Wait till the video is out..
after seeing the response Nokia is planning to increase the price ...they are planning to sell this phone 30000/- in India...
But this phone is good in not more than 22000/-
The slower N8 to be released, the more Iphone 4 can grab the market.
Aitoami, 01 Jul 2010You are wrong..
N8's multitouch is good, but it can't beat wave.. Its multiuntouch is more ... moreActually I was refering to Gsmarena review video of Wave. Yes multitouch was accurate but not as snappy as Galaxy S.
Ok thanks.. :D
20 days before, dealer say it will available within 10 days, now 20 days, what will for nokia is waiting for?
its true symbian really sucks but gives us bang for bucks see meego rocks andoriod rocks symbian sucks and symbian3 is a update of symbian1 i never uses symbian1 but may symbian3 be good for me lets see but videos proved again thats its sucks.
Niraj, 30 Jun 2010Btw in this video multitouch works better than Wave and Same as Galaxy S..You are wrong..
N8's multitouch is good, but it can't beat wave.. Its multiuntouch is more accurate than iPhone's. Watch youtube videos..
SuperAmoled(that has only one layer) has a better precision than Amoled(has 3 layers containing air)
Im worried about 1 point
and that is...
who should create apps for symbian 3 when symbian 4 will come ?
I believe SE can safely be left out by now :-) HTC have a bigger market share when it comes to top end devices - not to mention build quality and after sales service. Sad but true . . .
