People, DON'T BUY this phone!
I see yesterday prototype from my friend.
This phone is very slow and buggy.
OS is unstable!
This is BIG TRICK from nokia!
With the specifications like 12 MP camera and Biggest sensor available in Camera phones.. Life time free Navigation on Ovi maps, HD recoding, and lot of improvement on Ovi stores...
Further as seen in Youtube videos... the UI seems to be improved remarkably over N97 n all..and looks very impressive...
Finally with price tag of 370 euros... This product is going to sell like hot cake...
After long time nokia has got things right...
I am waiting to gets my hands on... Must buy for Smartphone lovers..
Brillant response.. And I agree that the camera specs are spectacular and no one will argue that until another company comes out with another new phone with 14, 16 or 18 megs,. Though most even at 12 will have little do with the reason why they will buy..
I just think it is a really good phone on paper and I would like to see the actual results of the test from GSM Arena before I close.. :)
Sent from my iPhone...
This phone is gonna sell very well, i can even surprise nokia expectation, when this phone hits the market, n97; n86, etc will become cheaper,
n8 is a flagship phone for just a few months, and then there will be meego phone which is apparently cost about euro 500
Xapnosamson, 21 Jun 2010Guys,
Its seems that everyone here is either a fan for one company or another sprouting ba... moreWell, I respect your opinions.
For me, i think Nokia N8 Xenon Flash + 12 Megapixel Camera + large sensors is just too sweet to resists!
I think Iphone can never touch nor come close to this.
For me, i think N8 is a fully loaded high end phones.
The features in it is more than enough for me.
I also am satisfied with Sysmbian apps available.
I don't need 10k of other apps like Iphone of other smart phone platform can offer.
For me, i think the radio function really come in handy. Cause my favorite radio station 91.3 do provide internet radio. And i listen to radio a lot!
For me, N8's User Interface is just so nice!
Well, i don't care about Iphone or other phone's interface.
Well this is also just my personal preferences.
There are just so much juice i can squeeze out from this lovely little N8 :)
Well, no offense to u or anyone too :)
I will just buy N8 for me.
Maybe will buy another for my sister since it is so much cheaper than Iphone hahaha.
Oh, I also wanted to ask if anyone noticed but the N8 reminds me of an iphone clad in Armor like the cases you can buy for it from Capdase and Belkin! Quite sharp and original in design! :)
Its seems that everyone here is either a fan for one company or another sprouting banter about which is better and getting personal just to get their point across when no one is really listening when they get frustrated.
Truth is I have used Nokia, Samsung, Sony, and Apple. So I hope you all don't take this personally but I must say that while all of them have their strengths and flaws I still prefer the iPhone! For two simple reasons.
The first - USER INTERFACE.. No other company, from Nokia, Samsung, Sony, and whomever have even come close and are still so very far to the feel and responsiveness of the iphone! Even as of this writing, there is no one who can, pardon the pun, "touch." the iphone!
Second - Applications! On the Appstore and from the like of Cydia and Rock as well. Even if 90% like so many have said on this forum, are quite useless, the remaining 10% still means Millions of Applications that I can use whenever and wherever I want!
Now, as for the Processor, and screen, or whatever else, I really don’t care.. Why? Because for the most part, we will see the same technology on par with today’s standards from phones of the same level.. If any.. I am also no Fan of Steve Jobs but let’s face it, with the orders coming in for the iPhone this week shutting down the system, im pretty sure he is doing something right!
So please understand that I am not attacking anyones choice.. I am just simply stating my opinion.
So, I have decided to buy the iPhone and N8 as soon as available and give one to each of my mistresses and let you all know what is the reality of the situation is there!
Peace Y'all!! :)
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2010why is the rating going down guyz... ?
Because this phone is a BIG THREAT for other brands.
Thus other brands' fans constantly trying to vote this phone down.
There are 1k plus votes a day.
You can see how popular this phone is.
Anis, 21 Jun 201024th Augest in Germany 26th Augest in UK and nearly begining of september will be avialable I think in India it will release 1-2 week before Diwali. I dont see Nokia will miss that opportunity..

N8 seems to be a good phone.. But there r other phones too coming in the market to give competition to this monster. Samsung has launched galaxy S which has super amoled screen which is best in the market, it has 1Gh of processor, 512 mb of ram and 2gb of rom. But it has only 5mp of camera as compared to N8 which has 12mp. Samsung is also going to launch first projector phone i.e beam, which is also very exciting.. Just imagine how good it will be to watch a movie or to play a game by projecting it on the wall with beam.. I m confused which phone should i buy..?
