i use my 5-year old , 09 Jun 2010feature-wise the specs are great. the phone design should be better than this though. i've see... moreGuys dont forget N8 has hdmi, fm transmitter, 5 band 3.5G, USB OTG, 12 mp camera, 1/1.83" sensor, Xenon flash etc. These thing requires room to fit in the phone. Thats why N8 is thick. If N8 dont have all these than it would be also 10mm thin.

The real shame here is that you seem to have no idea about the effort that goes behind designing and building a phone of this magnitude. Fact that the phones that you just compared with come out short in so many ways when compared to N8 will never be understood by you.
But since you brought it up, when all these phones are available, visit a shop that sells all three and try pocketing each. Tell us then if the squarish end of the Milestone and Iphone 4 slides in easier in your tight jeans or the scooped tips of the N8 does.
You are complaining about 2mm? WTF ?!?! This phone is obviously the best all arounder cell for 2010. The best priced. The most awaited and you have run out of ideas of what to complain about :-)
feature-wise the specs are great. the phone design should be better than this though. i've seen the interview with the designers of this phone on youtube. they keep talking about this HONEST approach. WTF!!! NOKIA SHOULD SACK THEM. why they come with this 12.9 cm thickness!!!! milestone xt720 goes 10.9cm, apple goes 9.3cm... and N8....shame!!!
I don't mind with the big screen size on today's touch phones. But the phone thickness will determine whether your phone is a brick or smartphone.
Wizard, 08 Jun 2010Too bad it doesnt hAve a Handwriting recognitionlol there is a guy that write canto or mand on the n8 and is accurate to a tee and has amazing response time
N8, 09 Jun 2010This phone is going to be a MEGA HIT!!!!Yeah, it's going to be a MEGA HIT like Britney Spears to?.
This phone is my favourite phone. It is certainly the best. and btw, visit symbianyourway.blogspot.com for your phone needs
As amazing as ARM processors are. They must come 2nd place to the BEST processors ever made.
No 1 always & forever RISC. Because their design architecture was leaps ahead of their time. Better than INTEL. If risc were leading the micro processor race that is INTEL today, RISC would be 10x more advanced in every instance & beauty of it's design logic.
Even if sammy,htc,se....release 1ghz or 1.2ghz phones they will never surpass n8's popularity.....
This only shows that nokia is still world leader ....
The N8 & especially S^3 are supremely dedicated to using as little energy as possible. In fact S^3 has the smallest carbon footprint & promotes GREEN. It does more to save the planet & cut energy over any phone ever made. Thanks to extremely low power computational application processors & S^3's new Micro Kernel.
Bluetooth 3 does utilize an 802.11 module for 24mbps data transfer rates. New bluetooth architecture along with new Bluetooth power profile allows the bluetooth module to in effect drop to deep sleep state not using any energy until triggered by a function which needs it. So it will always be on but avtually in effect off most of the time. It's very very low power efficiency. The SIG team have created a great bluetooth high speed design. The n8 is indeed about breaking & using the lowest energy it can. S^3 is at the core of supporting all these super low power technologies.
IamAnonymous, 08 Jun 2010take a moment and think about this: the n8 and the iphone have the same screen size. the n8 ... morethats rigt not to forget N8 has got 12.1 mega ves iphone 5 mega almost 3x more and with a larger sensor this is on another planet for shooting quality both stills and video.
almost 2 million views for this device already. and its not even out yet... truly awesome

the n8 and the iphone have the same screen size. the n8 ... moreThis is the only one thing that Iphone 4 is better than N8... Maybe.
Don't forget N8 is using AMOLED technology which is also a monster in display area.
