iphone 4 will pose a tough competition for this.
it still built on old hardwares and is late too.
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2010i understand that the os makes a huge difference. a general analogy would be putting a great r... morewell hopefully the final firmware version of the phone or a sooner update would use the 780Mhz the ARM1176 processor has. for some dumb reason Nokia declocks the phone's processor upon release, like the 5800 @ only 300+mhz and after the v21 update they put it to the proper 434Mhz of the ARM1136.
Well I disagree with that., you want a camera then buy Panasonic DMC-FX70 or Samsung NX5 or Sony Alpha 290 DSLR., not so good OS of this phone., which it has high OS and RAM then this will be a real monster phone like Samsung Galaxy S
hi....why the ram is like old one 256?first n8 has amoled display,second of its os like symbian^3,third 3d graphics accelar.these things need no too much power and ram....one thing these things save ur money too.....why spend 700 to 1000 usd?why not 400 to 500 usd ?
BRAND NAME, 08 Jun 2010Ooowww an what do have here., another monster phone from not so famous brand HTC..
http://b... moreThe reason it is famous are because it has the best camera compared to all HTC phone.
It also is the first device to run on Symbian^3.
The over all build is using great material that u cannot find on any of HTC phone.
The look (design) also not bad :)
Yea.. partly is because it is from Nokia.
Because Nokia provide the best customer support after sales. :)

mothman, 08 Jun 2010sorry sir..its about the operating software.symbian^3,read about the operating software....thi... morei understand that the os makes a huge difference. a general analogy would be putting a great race driver in a mediocre car and competing against the top... i like this phone quite much. The least i want to see is a lagging sluggish device that would have had a huge potential. Just think nokia should not afford such position when this is supposed to be kind of a come back. and you know that's what the end consumer would judge against. By end of august competitors will be announcing 1.2GHZ processors with 1G RAM. go compete against that... my two cents for what they are worth. nice talk tho..
Ooowww an what do have here., another monster phone from not so famous brand HTC..
hhhmmm looks like this phone is less specs and need to catch up., the reason why it has high rating because of its brand name NOKIA,,,
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2010im reading quite carefully. still no indication how 256 RAM would suffice in real life. There ... moresorry sir..its about the operating software.symbian^3,read about the operating software....think evrything will be clear and thanks for the good question
specs on site must be wrong! There's no way that this pone has ARM 11 compatible processor!
It must have TI's OMAP 3000 series based on Cortex-A8 core!!
The pone is beautiful, it would be grate to have this kind of Android device!
mothman, 08 Jun 2010plz read carefully....sir.u will get ur answerim reading quite carefully. still no indication how 256 RAM would suffice in real life. There is a real life performance and marketing description of a product. Why would every other leading OS phone go up for 512? Plus its like a dual core vs pentium... i guess they both will run your computer.... the question is how well. Android is a pretty capable linux based os and again they go for 512..
What is Amoled screen/display ?
AMOLED display is a new and
advanced display which is being
used by companies like Samsung, LG,
etc. in their mobile phones,
notebook, and LCD TV displays.
AMOLED means (Active-matrix
organic light-emitting diode) display
consists of OLED pixels that have
been deposited or integrated onto a
thin film transistor (TFT). Amoled
screens are ultra thin, ultra bright
and doesn’t require a backlight to
An amoled display consumes less
power and offers a high refresh rate
with superior image quality. They
are flexible and unbreakable in
What is Symbian^3?
Symbian^3 is the first fully open
source version of the Symbian
platform, and the second release of
the Symbian platform by the
Symbian Foundation. It extends
Symbian^2 in many ways, including
graphics support for advanced
layering and effects, full HDMI
support for a great television
playback experience and improved
data performance - ideal for
streaming high definition audio and

clearly N8 only edge is its Camera?? Hhhmmm and I heard that Galaxy S is downloadable to Androd 2.2 Froyo., according to news Galaxy S os the monster phone this year…
mothman, 08 Jun 2010The ARM11™ processor family provides the engine that powers most smartphones in production ... moreYet again, no matter what a marketing presentation for an ARM 11 would say I still think they might have been in a better position upping it a bit.However if we consider the graphic accelerator it might be ok. The RAM I think is def low. it will have to handle 12 MP images, plus up to 48GB of combined storage.... that's a lot of computing... Plus all the updates that hopefully will be coming up...
virtually every portable device now
uses USB for PC connectivity. As
these products increase in
popularity, there is a growing need
for them to communicate both with
USB peripherals and directly with
each other when a PC is not
available. There is also an increase in
the number of other, non-PC hosts
(Embedded Hosts) which support
USB in order to connect to USB
The newly published Revision 2.0 of
the USB On-The-Go and Embedded
Host Supplement addresses these
scenarios by allowing portable
devices and non-PC hosts to have the
Targeted host capability to
communicate with selected other

The ARM11™ processor family
provides the engine that powers
most smartphones in production
today; it is also widely used in
consumer, home, and embedded
applications. It delivers extreme low
power and a range of performance
from 350 MHz in small area designs
up to 1 GHz in speed optimized
designs in 45 and 65 nm. ARM11
processor software is compatible
with all previous generations of ARM
processors, and introduces 32-bit
SIMD for media processing,
physically tagged caches to improve
OS context switch performance,
TrustZone for hardware-enforced
security, and tightly coupled
memories for real-time application
If only nokia would add a faster processor and 512 RAM. Its just putting it physically at a disadvantage now... What happens if you filled up all memory with random stuff (as some ppl would)? Even if they had to add 50 bucks it would've been worthy.. ugh....
iphone 4 is out and it will get beat by n8 when n8 will be released, but for now let the isheep enjoy their toy as it brings nothing new to the world...
nokia respects it's customers by giving them as more features possible to get with less money than apple charge for nothing new...
comparing n8 with iphone 4, shows how apple are so behind...
