Please watch out buying the N8 off the internet,as theres loads of Chinese copies available already,an Nokiablog says a Chinese shop showing off the N8,but i wonder if this is a Fake N8 or not,as theres no trust with the Chinese fakes an features way different from the Original N8,Nokia now again making a Big mistake announcing the N8 way to early an not even the software up to date,Motorola announcing another xenon flash mobile,an i bet Samsung an Sony Ericsson will release something better than the N8 a 15 or 20 mega-pixel camera mobile to stop the sales of the N8 not outshining them
Lol, 07 Jun 2010Please please suggest me which color N8 should I choose.. Please suggest as a good friend.Hey pal, this is base on your personal preference. Do not get influence by others opinion.
Actually, i myself also having hard time to choose between the blue, orange and black color.
I guess we will have to wait till we have the real device on our hand to decide which color looks best for us. :)

This phone is very well balanced ,a good combination of all features and i think itz good with cost 450 USD

Depending on how that kernel is written you can update or not. Worst case you will need flash back stock kernel, then update, then flash updated kernel (high speed kernel will be adjusted like what happened when going from 1.1 tot 1.2)

do you happen to have an n900 by any chance? im debating if i should overclock mine, but i notice they say you have to flash it and manually run the firmware updates. does that mean no updates notifications will come to your phone if you overclock it? do you know of anyways that it can be overclocked and continue to recieve the updates?
I am not gonna judje this phone only by itz specs,i am waiting to release it and for itz actual performance . Love N8.

1. The the most important fact here is that the N97 used Symbian^1 which was basically the old Series 60 OS running with a touch UI layer. I don't think I have to explain what a bad idea that turned out to be. N8 on the other hand runs a completely reworked OS with an UI that is designed for not only for touch screens but also hard keys. This new UI introduces single touch interface and pinch zoom that was lacking in the previous version.
2. The CPU in N97 was a disappointing ARM 11 434 MHz processor. In comparison, the N8 uses an ARM 11 680 MHz processor. This incidentally is the fastest CPU Nokia has ever stuffed into any of their phones. I point to your statement that "Nokia is still sticking with 600Mhz" which is not true.
3. Not only has the N97 had a slower CPU, it also lacked a GPU. As a matter of act the Symbian^1 would not even have taken advantage on a GPU even if there was one. Symbian^3 on the other hand was designed to optimize the usage of a GPU whereby its UI runs on this allowing for very smooth operation. And importantly, it runs a powerful Broadcom GPU.
I hope I do justice in explaining what an amazing user experience the N8 promises with the these upgrades even with a 'slower' but no less adequate CPU.
