Just a quick question, does anyone know whether you are able to turn off the "shutter sound" when you take photos (i.e. the sound that comes out of the speakers) and/or the recording sound when you begin to record a video like you can with the Innov8/i8510?
Another Nokia N 'never touch' series phone that will seem brill for a week then start freezing, turning off, running slow, failing to send texts, have faulty buttons and camera. If your going to get one be prepared to Sofftware flash every week and send it off to Nokia for warranty repair every 6-8 weeks.
Good luck to you all!
Nokia N Series = Never Touch!
Nokia should stick to what they do best.. Simply designed durable phones with long battery life!
have you all contributed to n8?
Why not participate in a competition to win this phone at n8makemyapp.com

Can you think this way
if iphone4 sell well, nokia may drop the price of n8 to euro 333:)
Another Embarassment at Nokia,Apple announce the iPhone 4 an its available in 2 weeks,Why do Nokia always make the wrong decision an announce there mobiles to early, an people get annoyed waiting for it to be released an then buy a alternative phone instead,this trend as been going on for ages at Nokia an hope it gets changed after the big shake up at Nokia,Like to see how the sales of the N8 will suffer with the new iPhone 4 being released 2 months before the N8,Please Grow UP Nokia an stop this Stupid Trend
Cortex-A8 is almost twice as fast as Arm11.Arm11@680 is something like 400mhz Cortex-a8.On the other hand i believe Symbian@400mhz A8 is faster (if it can be somehow compared)to android@550mhz(milestone). 1Ghz A8 is much much faster than Arm11@680 on any OS, I suppose.
When I find specification in Europe.nokia.com. Result is face detection only, no smile detect. Please correct it.

I'm the one who cramned out and postet the N9 news (Happy Visitor). Read this to know more about the story behind it(read up from the last 10 entries - up from now, especially the 'Visitor-Entries).
It is real that n9 don’t have 12mpx camera. Cause it will not a camera flagship device. It will be an alrounder. So if anyone wait for n9 then surely he/she will not get 12mpx with xenon.
People, if you say the N8 will have a Arm11 Processor, actually you are saying nothing ! 80%+ of all 'smart' cells have a Arm11! Is like saying 'my car has a 4cylinder engine'. The Snapdragon is type of Arm11 too as are most of the microprocessors used in cellphones and even some netbooks ! More usefull is to say 'my car has a 2bar turbo charged, 2litre engine with 4cylinders in line made by Ford'. The N8 has a OMAP 3630 ARM11 (cortex8 45nm), 720Mhz processor down cloaked to 680Mhz, made by TI :-)
NoKiA 4 EvA, 12 Jun 2010Does this mobile come in Green? That would be coolYes, green color
All those saying the CPU is slow coz its nt 1ghz just go to gsmarena on the Glossary section read about CPU on mobile en y u cnt compare speeds of cpu on diff OS'es.
Symbian^3 will have lots of visual capabilities. Transparencies, misting, ghosting, movement & animations that are hardware accelerated & not. With incorpporation of webkit & Qt you can do nice things with python scripting & with HTML that you couldn't do before.
You no longer need just the Symbian SDK kits, you can use th Qt tools, multiple third party solutions, you can use your favourite webmonkey running in firefox to simply do some scripting access the qt core & get some really strong application capabilities on the platform.
Symbian going on into the future you get all this power & Symbian has completely merged the capbabilties of the web, data being remote or local is a concept which has gone away you don't need to know about it you simply call it in terms of content or information you need, on the cloud, it's cross platform.
