Also 2 days of music play . Boy am i dreaming or what. Unlike n900 which had no support for java apps, n8 supports java and hence apps like opera mini & others will run on it.
Trula, 08 Jun 2010I just saw iphone 4, I must say, finally Apple is starting to develop a nice phone. Nokia fanb... moreN8 doesn't have much support because it runs maemo. Its about the only phone running that os. Symbian has the largest collection of apps and by far the largest of free apps. I just hope symbian^3 would be compatible with symbian^1 apps.
As far as i'm concerned, iphone is popular because of its simplicity. It is made for the below average people who don't know anything about mobiles and technology and have tonnes of cash in their pockets. How else can you explain someone paying so much a phone without multitasking or java support? These are things i don't think i can live without.
The only edge iphone 4g has over the n8 is its staggering screen resolution. (which i find excessive and unnecessary) its almost magical. All other ways, its not a competition. The n8 flogs the shit out of the i phone.
iPhone 4 16GB would be USD100 expensive then Nokia n8. for this 100 bucks what are the difference?
iPhone over N8
1) better Display resolution with IPS and better sunlight view ability.
2) Processor and Graphics.
3) Great App store.
4) Best OS and UI.
5) gyro sensor.
6) Really slim design and beautiful too.
7) 11% larger display.
8) last and the most important. A device where all the mentioned features actually work and don't just end up being something great on paper.
N8 over iPhone 4
1) HDMI TV output.
2) 12 MP camera + xenon flash
3) USB on the go
4) Dolby Digital
5) Free life time Navigation
Miscellaneous feature advantages not mentioned in both the list.
For those that say the n8's only has one good feature. Come out of your shell! For a start, the N8 arm 1176 cpu is specifically designed for media performance & especially optimized for gaming. The n8's broadcom gpu is specifically designed for gaming. S^3 is revamped for gpu accelerated front end. The high quality lens is not just designed for still cameras. It will drive 720p very well with full hardware decoding at native res of the loveley oled screen utilizing the gret cpu, gpu working together in harmony. Fm radio & transmitter. Bt3.0 + HS utilizing 802.11 module for 24mbps data transfers. Usb otg, multi touch ui capacitive touchscreen which is something apple can not match. & most but not all of the features mentioned are in nokias mid range device, this is high end specs for samsung. Way to go nokia geniuses. More for less pocket.
symbian ui may consider this
less menu as possible
cancel pop up menu, use other method
iphone ui use almost no menu bar
make thing viusalize
it is the key of making great ui
[deleted post]This phone looks rubbish to you becoz you cant even dream Apple to develop this kind of High end smart phones......
1 other reason N8 is the most smart phone. It have usb otg. Use phone as a host to exchange files between other usb devices. Nokia does it again, another new innovation first reason to buy n8.
The n8 has more partitions. Because of the added 256mb over the n5800 which had less memory for os & application mapping. The n8 phone will have an extra 16GB partition & I would think you'll be able to install apps to that which increases the amount of rom available over the n5800 two fold.

I agree the iPhone is even better than this, the only edge is has is the semi-useless 12mpixel camera
definitely not the best looking phone after all. 12 mp camera is just illusion, 5 and above will do the same job. the main point is if this device is fast enough, easy to use and how is battery life? I know many n900 buyers are very regretful cos of battery life. ovarall it would be so unfair to compare this device to iphone, they are definitely not in the same league!
[deleted post]exuces me, but what is your basis for claiming this will have to have so many repairs?
seems excellent featured nokia phone but what about processor speed in multiple applications running will decide the worth. If performance is slow just like E72 even having near to similar processor then will fail.
waiting to buy anxiously.
this is best imaging smarthphone, but not the best smartphone... if samsung galaxy s would have n8 camera it would be best device all around... missing items are: higher res screen, 512 ram, faster cpu and last but not least, led flash among xenon for torch and video light, also at this time android would be bether too....

First impression lasts y'know.
Trula, 08 Jun 2010I just saw iphone 4, I must say, finally Apple is starting to develop a nice phone. Nokia fanb... moreNope not Nokia's flagship. Nokia's flagship is likely to be a Symbian^4 device. So IT'S NOT NOKIA'S FLAGSHIP DEVICE.
This Nokia computer is really great, 680 Mhz processor is suffient, because
1. It incorporates both CPU & GPU + a Symbian ^3 OS, therefore expect a very fast device.
2. Don't expect any form of lugs 4 the same reason.
3. This device cannot crash while multitasking with a 680MHz processor.
4. The 680Mhz can be increased to abt 750MHz by firmware
I just saw iphone 4, I must say, finally Apple is starting to develop a nice phone. Nokia fanboys here can attest that Nokia have the right feature phones, the best after sales service, the widest availability. BUT its always lacks APPS SUPPORT! Even n900 which was released a few months ago is still on the infantile stage. Wow... Im smelling disappointment here AGAIN. It will be horrible if nokia N8 will be the a flagship then nokia will abandon it, leaving it appless bec. of its new software and lack of developers or dedicated users that will develop games, applications etc for n8. Im a nokia fan believe me owning, n95/E90/E71/n86/N900 and i phone 3gs. I just obsereved this and i know that all nokia users knows this is a FACT. Put it this way, Apple became famous bec. of they have "apps for everything" even though their phone SUCKS at being a phone! Imagine n8, having thousand of apps and dedicated developers. Then that6 will be time nokia finally made a Good product. a second n95 to be exact. Hope this phone does not become a failure like n97... I love nokia. Thats why im saying this. Hope they hear this.
