All company needs to understand the game apple is playing. UI+design win over specs. Only HTC and motorola understand this. And don't follow hype. Apple knows when everyone omit camera flash and 2nd camera bcuz of iphone 3Gs and so they put those in iphone4 and market them. So, others seem like behind in tech whereas those tech are dated back to 3 or 4 yrs. I really want decent non apple phone with nearly as good UI so that I don't need hefty amount of money. I will test n8 when it comes out
Sure about DviX-XviD support?Because there is nothing on the Nokia web sites or elsewhere........................

I think we are at cross purposes here. i was comparing N8 (680Mhz) with N97mini (400something Mhz). hell yes they have same proc architecture and the N8 may req more power due its higher clock. Look what i am trying to say that the combination of AMOLED and S^3 has been overrated to justify the 1200mAh battery.
In may theory, Nokia was facing the trade off between sacrificing the battery's compartment and reducing the touch phone's thickness. Nokia has a bad record on the latter. The firm earliest foray into touch phone market was a phone with 15.5mm thick (5800). Still, its best effort so far is 13.8mm (X3). I believe nokia needs more time to pass the learning curve. Bear in mind other competitors have done better (do u really want me to say the firm whose logo is 'a fruit with a first bite on it'?)
It is natural then for nokia to choose a small battery. I know it's hard to create a phone that matches everybody's cup of tea. What i want to emphasis here that the N class focuses on camera and entertainment shit. It may not be a reliable phone. Be prepared to bring your charger. umm don't forget the screwdriver as well. coz when your n8 hang (during early firmware), you might need that!
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2010N8 confirmed to support bluetooth mouse and has d class mono speaker which is decentBluetooth mouse is strictly over HDMI porting on HDTV screens.. But yea.. its true.. and keyboards too... :)

but let me point two things..
1. Android is not a complex OS. Ppl will laugh at you for saying that. Samsung and HTC have been adding powerful processors to their phones to prevent a lag and yeah it does drain battery. But not even symbian is bug free.. and there r a lotta freezing problems. But, symbian is more stable as it is studied and perfect over years.. Its not just about eye candy all the time.
2. There are other nokia phones with Inbuilt graphics accelerator. Nokia n900 for example is the most powerful phone they ever released with Maemo platform and a dedicated graphics accelerator.

Engineer Man, 12 Jun 2010Our interest is getting hit by apple sheep all over. We need some real daily interest boosts h... moresee, i love nokia, i am a dedicated fan. But the current phone i have Nokia N97, the touchscreen is bad bad bad....! i mean if it is a touchscreen phone...means u will touch it, and if the screen hangs...then what is the point of such a touchscreen phone? tht is a very sad and disappointing!
iPhone on the other hand obviously has the best technology in regards to the touchscreen....that might just pull the consumers :(
like i am really liking this phone...N8, probably my next phone. but i am hoping the touchscreen will work better and wont be a disappointment like N97?

How about this, the Galaxy s has a talk time of 13h 30min (2G) & up to 6h 30min (3G) & 750h 2G / UP to 576h 3G, stand-by. 1500mAh. Thats a whole Month stand-by. A Pal has been using this phone for a week now & he says that the battrey life is as screwed up as in iphones Aghhh isheep, especially while multitasking. That's it dies really fast. Why? Because it uses a very complex Android OS which needs a powerful ARM Cortex A8 1ghz processor to run smoothly as compared to a simple symbian OS which is user friendly, very stable with very few or no bugs at all. Why? Because its Cpu is ARM 11 680 Mhz processor. Which means it wount consume as much power as the cortex a8 does & also incorporates the GPU which makes processing data alot smoother jst like in the N82, which is one of the best phones Nokia has ever made. There are only 2 phones in Nokias history that incorporate a GPU. Thats The n82 & the yet to be released N8. Ope this helps.

and here's the nokia n8 overview part 3 of 3
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2010is it stereo speakers ??? :):):)Q: Just wanted to know if the N8 employs a mono speaker or stereo?
A: There is a boosted D-class mono speaker for hands free. It means there’s a better audio quality and volume even with a single speaker.

It have an official Questions and Answers from Nokia©
The N8 is a respectable piece of hardware and a must have for me. Even I could bare the 12 MP camera. I would prefer the 8 MP camera-module from Carl Zeiss of the N86 - with more space left in this device for a 32 GB memory-module and the BP-L4 battery with 1500 mAh. Hopefully, Nokia will consider this in another N8-XX-version.
