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..

When will this Nokia N8 be distributed in the market and how much will it be around?
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..?
[deleted post]as long as they keep voting, they keep upping the interest
More than 1000 themes and games are available for this phone before itz release :o

Anonymous, 20 Jun 2010What u should have done was check were this started from.
... moreMy my, what dumb arguments you make.
Bluetooth 3.0 is compatible with 2.0. This means N8 will communicate with Bluetooth 2.0 enabled device just as well as any phone while also able to transfer files at high speed with Bluetooth 3.0 enabled device.
The reason why Iphone does not come with Bluetooth 3.0, and might not in the foreseeable future is because the Bluetooth hardware aside, the only Bluetooth profile that Apple enables for its phones is the A2DP for Blutooth audio. You do not need Bluetooth 3.0 for just audio streaming.
There two view to the MEMORY question. Either "it comes with 16GB and I'm happy with it" or "it comes with only 16GG and I'm stuck with it". Which one are you?
The reason you make such a naive argument about the significance of Bluetooth file transfer that the Iphones lack is because you are too steeped in iSheep methodology; Itunes for everything. There is a world out there where one can transfer anything from a picture you take on your camera, sound you record on your phone, videos, documents, notes, contacts .... everything from one Bluetooth enabled phone to another without the need for a PC. Try it, you'll love it.
If making video calls over 3G is pathetic then making video calls over wifi from one Iphone 4 to only another Iphone 4 is stupid. 3G video calls are not perfect but it did not stop me from calling my mom when I was in an rural area during work when there was no wifi or when I was not sure what chair my sister wanted and had to call and show her directly before buying it or when I had to call my friend to check with him if the table center piece for his wedding was ok on his wedding day. Get the point?
FM receiver and transmitter arguments you made were your most stupidest me thinks. A lot of people (and I mean a lot world wide) use FM radio to listen to their local stations and just because you could only pick up a few stations does not make it unusable. I can pick up all my local stations. You think buying a dock and having it powered separately is better than having a built in FM transmitter. This sort of sums up all your arguments I suppose. Only an Isheep will think everything on its Apple device is perfect and will be willing to pay extra to make up for its deficiencies.
If my assessment is correct, as an Isheep what ever I tried to point out above would fall into the Memory Hole that Big Brother jobs created for you sheeps and most likely you'll come back with more nonsensical drivel on why "Both phones are the same".

Lets compare was started by iphone 4 and he obviously did not get his facts right.
