i'd like to know from those people who define the n8 as a mid-range phone, what are the basis of their judgment? what else should be there in a mobile phone to be categorized as high-end? and what does the iphone actually "does" that this phone, or even any other high/mid range phones, cannot do?
and, i need a clarification about if the n8 has tv out functionality through the standard 3.5 jack. meaning, can it work on non-hd tvs or what?
N8 is goin to rock !
*12mp camera with all the great features
*16 gb+32gb memory
*an appreciable web browser ,edge class33
*usb 3.0 with on the go feature
*dolby digital surrounding sound
*availability in nice colours
*HD video quality
*scratch resistant surface
*most important, affordable prize
everything is perfect with this phone,just a 680 mhz processor but nokia will help us to upgrade it,no worries !
NOKIA IS THE BEST
Will this phone support s60 v3 softwares & applications ? Eg.NGAGE !!!
Annie, 18 Jun 2010N8 is not mid-range, but high end for a lower price. the iphone is very overpriced device, and... more@£320.00 the phone is cheaper than the year old N97 which retails at £399 and that's after a massive price reduction and the later ain't exactly a phone one could be proud of.
Mid range spec apart from the camera but a camera alone does not sale a phone
Whether the Iphone is over priced we'd have to ask the people who buy it, they're either insane or simply appreciate and understand how much better the phone is compared to what is available on the market.
Anyway N8 and Symbian^3 seems to be having similar problems as the N97 if they release it is " which I think they will coz the problems are still present in current phones after all the updates", then they are simply doomed watch this video on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fz3utELHCL4 at 40 secs in "Memory Full Error" and at 6.31 "System error message" Nokia gonna need all the luck to compete.
Annie, 18 Jun 2010N8 is not mid-range, but high end for a lower price. the iphone is very overpriced device, and... moredo u know that iphone 3gs 16 gb cost apple to build around 189$ and around 240$ for 32 gb while they selling it unlocked for 850$ 900$ for the 32 gb thats a big ripping !
Anonymous, 18 Jun 2010Two phones in two different categories. N8 is mid range hence the lower price tug while Iphone... moreN8 is not mid-range, but high end for a lower price. the iphone is very overpriced device, and there's not a lot of functions which are high-end on it. all it has in favor for itself is the touchscreen and the fashion statement. it ain't even a smartphone, just a phone which has it's 15 minutes of fame right now because of all the useless apps that are available.
the apps on symbian are far more functional (speaking of s60 apps, since S^3 is not yet available) office editors etc.
I still don't see why an iphone should be worth the price they ask. it's not the memory, 16Gb of microsd costs about 30€. so you'll pay twice the money for design and brand name.
I think nokia is just asking a reasonable price for a full-feature high-end phone, not just a higher price for brandname
NOKIA, we are resting all our hopes on you with this product! Make it come together like its spec sheets say! GO! :D
Saurabh, 18 Jun 2010Do we have softwares for Symbian^3? as We get many for S60V5/v3?Afaik Symbian^1 applications and games will support symbian^3. But you may have some trouble to run some contents..
Can You Run Symbian^1 Applications On Symbian^3 Devices Like Nokia N8 ?
